Re: Build 403-- Noise Floor

Alex P


The 403 build is impressive. Just discovered the 'Auto' signal level option and it's a very big plus since I was doing this adjustment manually. My compliments.

There is one thing that I just became aware of and haven't seen any posts that I can recall on the subject.
With a 50 ohm dummy load to the IQ and the SDR software, I see a noise floor of about -110 dBm. When I switch to Spectravue the floor is about -130 DBm. When connected to either my loop or vertical I get the same kind of relative noise floor differences between SDR and SV.

How do I adjust or calibrate the GUI for this?

Hi All,


1) Please open the Program Options, look in Console, Spectrum Scope and
select the defaults.

So what's new?

Apart from all the bugs I've added:

1) In the Spectrum Scope part of RX Options there are two new displays:
Spectrum Analysis and S-Meter

2) In the Waterfall part of the RX Options you can now have timestamps
displayed when using a RFspace radio or replaying a wavefile

What else:

1) I have NOT fixed the AM / FM demod problems when sampling at 48kHz, I'll
be looking at this tomorrow.


As always a million and one things to do, two weeks to get the bugs out :)
