Hi, I can't seem to edit the favorites data in SDR-Console – v3.0 preview 6 . The menu drops down and new frequency data can be entered but it doesn't retain the new values.  Randall, KM6LPW

Well if the HF bands are that bad then am I correct in assuming that you will be testing the Airspy HF+ on 2m EME rather than going to the pub?

While you are at it Simon how about the automatic satellite switching feature.

Would be great for the weather satellites as well for the amateur ones.

Simon,
Sorry. I thought you told us you sent the hf+ to someone to do some serious testing and that it would return last tuesday. Not trying to push you. Just very interested.

Well,

 

I would say ‘quite possibly’ – I’m sure MDS is better and dynamic range also. I must use the NetSDR’s downconverter to be sure of this. Prior to the HF+ I’ve been using the Airspy R2 which I’m sure is a tad better than the NetSDR+Downconverter.

It's getting colder, reception is getting better, it's getting more and more time for release. Hopefully mass production is ramped up before Christmas that some of the dark days of November can be spent signal hunting. When is it coming already!  Let's smash F5 some more...

Medium Wave Band in Europe (a bit OT)

Nils Schiffhauer
 

Hi - as we had some discussion about the dynamic range of SDRs and the situation on medium in Europe:

In Germany, medium wave is completely dead, and it is fading in most other European countries with still good activity from e.g. the UK, Spain, Romania ...
This situation leaves welcomed room for DX on channels which had been occupied by strong Europeans in the past.

You may find some 25 recent and mostly DX logs with audio clips on https://dk8ok.org/

Even with 16 bit SDRs (no, I didn't tried AirSpy HF+ yet!), you will now experience some spillover from strong shortwave transmitters - being Radio Romania in my case - in the hours of dusk. I hope, a lowpass filter will cure that. Or HF+ ...

BTW: V3's "Signal History" already is a big help in nailing peak signal times.
