Re: Audio Distortion - Cannot Decode FT8 #airspyr2


Not at 24.915 MHz, I suspect. (Hm, with either "." or "," separators. He has a US call sign so it's "about" 25 MHz as he cited it. That is on the ragged edge of R820 type tuners. I'd expect stability problems with it. (If he is using a converter I'd expect it to just flat not work given most conveters. A GPS stabilized Spyverter might work.)

In the forums (URL at the bottom) post this problem and a screenshot so we can see your settings. WSJT should be fine.

Just a thought. Did you sync the time setting on your computer?

Using an Airspy R2. Computer is Dell Tower,Intel 10th Generation Quad I,Graphic Card NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660T,Memory (RAM) 32 G,Windows 10 Pro

Test case 24.915 MHz ham radio FT8 frequency and WSJT-X, V2.2.2

Received audio to speaker or virtual cable is mushy/distorted. The audio spectrum of received signals on the WSJT-X waterfall appear mushy and poorly defined. Signals will not decode. Changed SDR to an SDR-IQ. Signals are clearly defined on the WSJT waterfall and all signals are decoded.

I have tried reinstalling the software and adjusting all the settings I can find but there is no change. Does anyone have any suggestions? I purchased the Airspy R2 for weak signal VHF/UHF meteor scatter and Es propagation. I have jpg picture files of the V3 screen, WSJT-X Airspy window, and the WSJT-X SDR-IQ window but I don't know how to attach them here.

Thank You
