Re: Editing the broadcast database ?

Bruce Tanner
 

If it is just one or two frequencies of interest it might be best to use the 'memory' feature. That has worked well for me in the range all the way from 870 KHz to 10 MHz WWV.  Using a Softrock V6.2 + Xtal for 80/40 meters.

I tried editing the broadcast band database , added a few long wave stations.  However they do not show up when I boot the program, only frequencies above 3 mHz show up.  Is there a secret to editing this file ?

Just a thought with no knowledge... but be sure to check you are saving it back to the correct folder. Seems you would get some sort of warning about 'do you want to rewrite this file' if it were going back to the proper place. Check the pathway as to where the revised file is being sent.

Hi,

 

Quick answer - ye but not yet with my software. I have FT-950 + IF-2000 and SDR-IQ here.

Just got my RF Space SDR-IQ and IF-2000 for my FT-950. This is my first SDR. I use HRD all the time. So I do know that fantastic software somewhat. Can the IQ and the SDR-Radio be set up to do both, be a receiver on it's own and be use with the FT-950. Can I put a switch on the input? Whats the best way, if it can be done. Should have everything installed this weekend. Thislooks like it may be the future of radio. Thanks in advance

There is sample sourcecode for control there as well.  It is in vb.   Basically it uses a ftdi serial interface to send info to adjust frequency, bpf etc.   Pretty basic interface.   I would like to see support for this as well since it is a cheap built sdr. 


Thanks

I might as well throw my hat in the ring early and campaign for SDR-radio console support of the inexpensive Soft66XXX line of receivers. That would provide for a low priced entry point for those wishing to experiment with SDR and don't have alot of money to spend. There currently is no console that properly supports the board.

Can we listen to audio from each VFO at the SAME time? I have not found a way to do this. In SpectraVue you can feed audio from 2 VFOs to the left/right audio channels.

Re: Softrock V6.2 and V9.0 unmade kits available

Jim Miles <jmiles56@...>
 

Wish I was in the UK as have been trying to find an assembled
SoftRock v9.0 Lite+USB Xtall Receiver with Si570 and Electronically Switched BPF for some time now. Maybe I'll get lucky and find one in the
US one of these days.

I find I have two Softrock V9.0 RX kits with electronic switched band pass filters surplus as built two for someone else who provided their own kits in the end and not planning on building another soon. They were obtained from Tony only just last month and should have V15.12 AVR I can check and if needs be update them.

They were from Tony KB9YIG without CMOS Si570 but pretty sure I have a couple spare from last buy from Tom.

I also have a range of un made V6.2 RX Lite kits (old style not version II) these are fixed frequency RX for bands 160m to 10m. See http://www.wb5rvz.com/sdr/New_SR_Lite/index.htm for details of what these look like. You can use these with a DDS or other crystals for LF/VLF or VHF use, I use one as a 500KHz SDR RX using a 4MHz xtal.

Initially, to UK only please ... anyone interested as I know they work with Simon's new software?

Will sell any of these at cost which is what they cost me from Tony and the Si570 from Tom if needed add whatever postage is from me.

Actually, it is NOT below 3Mhz that is the issue. I just tried to add Radio Marti to the database at 5980 but it is not showing up either. I simply added the line of text and pressed "save" . Odd.
