RX-SELECT rx-select <rx> <ant> <rx> receiver no. Lo|Hi
<ant> antenna ant14|ant15
Moves the requested receiver to focus

and sets RF switch appropriately

Geo Brick LV,

Ethernet power strip

LNA-GATE1 lna-gate1 <Ina> <vg1> <lna> amplifier LV|LH|HV|HH

<vg1> first gate voltage -2.0 to 2.0 V
<ant> antenna ant14|ant15

Sets the first gate bias on the selected

amplifier to the requested voltage.
Will only operate if that amplifier is enabled

Beaglebone
LNA-GATE2 lna-gate2 <Ina> <vg1> <lna> amplifier LV|LH|HV|HH

<vg1> first gate voltage -2.0 to 2.0 V

Notes:

  1. The antenna number, <ant>, is required only for the ACC command. The front-end computer should ignore it.
  2. All numbers are floats
  3. The frontend will echo the command (but not the arguments)
  4. Everything is case-insensitive
