Oops! 

I just checked the "crashes when I tune through 1 MHz" - as I'm FM band only normally. It didn't crash going down , but on the way up - in 1 MHz steps it all froze when I got to 98 MHz.

SDR is an RSP1 and not only did SDR-Console crash it scrambled the RSP1 settings. In fact I had to unplug it from the computer and re-install it. Then I had to restore various settings - which I did in SDR# / HDSDR.

I think Simon means a whole screenshot of the entire SDR Console, which will likely contain important information giving clues as to your issue.

 

The program has a built in ability to take screenshots – click near top left on the little camera icon.

Hello,

 

While using B200, I am getting a centre peak (pls see the pic attached). Even if you change the centre frequency it appear there. But it's not happening while I am using SDRPlay, RTl SDR.

 

Can someone look into this please?

Thanks for the reply.  I wonder what I'm doing wrong.  I'll investigate different USB connector options when I get home this evening, but I wouldn't have much of an idea where else to look for a culprit.

Thanks again,

Thank you for the information: I will resist the urge to uninstall in the future.

Also, making up terms like "audio crash". Not helpful, I am sorry about that.

 

The screenshots are attached. (#1) shows 20 meters with and signals present.

Then (#2)  I shifted via memory preset to 11670 AM.

I could have done this any way via the VFO or the radio: crash.

Then, (#3)  I shift back via memory preset to 20 meters. No change.

 

Then, (#4) under Radio, Stop...Select....SDR Play and I am back in business.

 

If instead, I go to Tools....Restart, the program restarts with a red X beside

the select radio definition for the SDR Play. That's the ONLY radio definition

I presently have.

 

Does this help clear us up?

Re: SDR Console Version 2 License

Jim Smith G0OFE
 

Not experienced that issue here, using v2.3 to monitor 160/80/40 on JT65 with RSP1, and V3 and an RSP2 to monitor 20/15m on JT65. Both work fine together.

I use 2.3 for this purpose where I can, as it uses rather less CPU and doesn’t fall over if the CPU maxes out. (V2.3 does not yet support RSP2)

Simon,

 

Not sure if this has been mentioned, but whenever I have SDRPlay RSP1 and RSP2 both plugged in to my machine then the RSP1 front end is deaf in V2.3.  But if I unplug RSP2 and restart V2.3 (and re-select RSP1 radio) then RSP1 front end is good to go again.  But whenever I have both radios (RSP1 and RSP2) plugged in, the only thing that shows up in the V2.3 bandscope is a fat DC spike.



It's not a problem for me because I usually don't use V2.3 (V3 is my daily driver), but I wanted to mention it in case you weren't aware.



Thanks and best regards,

Thanks for confirming this. 
I will download the new version when I see it.
I would also like to take a look at V3: I believe I saw a post that I can download that next door with no particular issue. Looking forward to taking a peek.

ZOOM function in VLF with ELAD FDM-S2 and SDR-Radio V3, 64-bit, 2017-01-08_2122

Bandwidth maxi 6.144 KHz

The zoom function does not react in the same way over the VLF frequency range

Do this
• Minimal zoom
• Display the frequency 21.760 KHz in CW mode
• Zoom to ¾ of its magnification
  Suitable image
• Reduction Zoom to minimum of magnification
  The image does not want to be reduced significantly
• Must switch to AM
• Go back to the frequency 200 KHz
• Press centering of the frequency
• Enable Zoom to Max
  And there, the image is reduced to its maximum, normal visor, wideband frequency.

Can you reduce this?


I had already mentioned this phenomenon, but surely, I did not explain it to you in this way.
Wishing to be clearer this time.

 

Best regards

Makes sense – CloudIQ isn’t supported in V2.3, also ‘my’ CloudIQ is still with RFspace.

Can I get it to connect? No way! I try manually entering the IP address in the radio setup but still no luck. It clicks and connects but nothing comes through to the console.

I also notice that external radio support is none functioning?

Re: Newbie set up question

Benton Jackson
 

Have you tried different RF gain settings? I think it defaults to max, which is actually minimum gain reduction, if that makes sense. 


Re: Newbie set up question

Bob
 

Thanx for the comments.  Maybe I will just run it thru the tuner.  I would like to listen to 160M.  The other option is to make my own attenuation pad.  I think Elecraft also makes one and some other QRP OEM's.  And I am not sure if the issue is the AM or FM BC band.  I can see the tower of a 100kW FM station from my house.  It kills some of my cheap FM tuners.  And I do have a pretty am station about 15 miles away.  I was also thinking of putting the RSP2 in another metal box.  The internal shielding in the plastic box is just a spray on.

I like the way Console shows SSB signal on the panadapter.

Re: Newbie set up question

Denny
 

Yes, I agree that is an unfortunate part of this high pass filter. But it is a tradeoff mainly due to the high end attenuation frequency ~ 1705 KHz cut off, VS putting up with what appears is a substantial overloading and any possible related IMD products generated in a receiver due to high signal level AM broadcasters nearby.


I prefer a tuned band pass filter myself, but Bob's AM band band-stop filter he has been trying seems to have worked well.

Hi All,

 

Here’s my 10E in action this evening in Europe. Recorded using the Windows game recorder (built into Windows 10), using a 4k Dell monitor.

Re: Newbie set up question

mcayton@...
 

Denny,

It should be noted that that filter has a cutoff of 2.6 MHz, so the 160 meter band will be blocked.

If the 160 meter band isn't important to the user, that filter looks to be a very impressive performer for the price, judging by the chart on that page (55 to 72 db attenuation of the AM broadcast band).
