After a longer break beginning of 2021 I started to receive HRPT weather satellite pictures in L-band again. Meanwhile a new satellite, METOP-C became active. I am still struggling to get perfect pictures. As you can see in the pictures below there seem to be packet dropouts in my PC during reception. They are apparently not RF related. Even though the PC receiving the data from the Spyserver on an Odroid SBC is running with about 40% CPU load it seems to drop packets). Any hints on how to improve this are appreciated.
