Project description

Generate ADIF For Satellite QSOs

Quick Installation


pip install pysatadif



pip install --upgrade pysatadif

Quick Usage


$ pysatadif --satname SO-50 --timeon 0050 --qso N0CALL --qso N1CALL --qso N2CALL,DM00 --output adif

Full Usage


usage: pysatadif [-h] -s SATNAME -n TIMEON [-f TIMEOFF] [-d QSODATE]
[-g MYGRID] [-r MYRIG] [-c OPERATOR] [-t TXPWR] -q QSO
[-o OUTPUT] [-v]

optional arguments:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-s SATNAME, --satname SATNAME
Satellites to track
-n TIMEON, --timeon TIMEON
Start time of QSO (HHMMSS)
-f TIMEOFF, --timeoff TIMEOFF
End time of QSO (HHMMSS)
-d QSODATE, --qsodate QSODATE
-g MYGRID, --mygrid MYGRID
My grid square
-r MYRIG, --myrig MYRIG
My rig
-c OPERATOR, --operator OPERATOR
My callsign
-t TXPWR, --txpwr TXPWR
TX Power
-q QSO, --qso QSO QSO callsign and optionally grid (eg N0CALL,DN70)
-o OUTPUT, --output OUTPUT
Output Format (text, adif)
-v, --verbose Print verbose debugging messages

Run pysatadif once. Then see $HOME/.pysatadif/defaults.json

You may configure your callsign, maidenhead grid square, radio, and
transmitting power which will apply to all passes. You may override
these at any time by using the command-line switches.

If the QSO was made on the current UTC day, you may leave out the
QSODATE parameter. If the QSO was made during the current UTC year, you
may leave out the YYYY.

You may enter callsigns and grids in lower case, and they will be
converted to upper case.

If you copied the other station's grid square, be sure to add it:
-q N0CALL,AA00. If you don't have it, leave the comma and following out.
