Re: LimeSDR Noise Spike

Antonio Gutierrez
 

This is the spike on the SDRconsole. The big signal is the local repeate and the spike in the middle is always there. TX and RX are calibrated too





Kind regards

Hi Richard,

I do not know what is wrong with your setup but my LimeSDR does not show any central spike.

Betreff: [SDR-Radio] LimeSDR Noise Spike

All:

I now this has been discussed before. Enclosed I have included a screen shot of Console V3 and my LimeSDR. I just moved back into my old QTH after not being here for a couple of years, so I am working with real antennas and not signal generators!

I distinctly remember solving this noise spike problem where I used to live, and I have followed the procedure listed on the home page. I changed the Visual Gain and Gain per the recommendations, and performed the calibration. Upon completion of the calibration I still get a very noticeable spike.

I feel like I must be missing something, but after playing with this for an hour, I thought maybe someone could see how I am screwing this up.

Thanks in advance!

I understand now. Yes, I was using the snipping tool.  I will proceed using the Camera Icon at the top of the screen. Sorry for any confusion.

It’s nothing more than a screen shot taken of what I saw after adjusting the gain settings and calibrating. No evasive editing whatsoever. What “material data” are you looking for. I can generate more of these if there is something specific you would like to see.

Re: Simon - RTL_TCP RF Gain controls missing in V3

Podolsky A <w8du@...>
 

Yes, I can confirm that. Still using rtl_tcp or rsp_tcp and both work fine now, including RF gain control from the SDR Console v3.0.22 HOME screen.

Re: More Identities

Tom Crosbie G6PZZ
 

Joanne & Christian,

This has been quite an esoteric discussion which I have enjoyed. However, I'm still confused over the concept of identities in SDRC.
Do identities:
Mean a user identity?
A different receiver?
Different settings for the same radio?

I've not used this feature before, but I think I'm about to hence my reason for butting in.

Agreed - it would be handy to have radio definitions that have the same front end with and without converter present with different names assigned by the user or default different names automatically generated.

But, it ain't broke, just bent a little, so don't fix it yet.

The registry seems to reprise the find me stuff and adds a limited

converter options in there or not as I don't use the converter mode currently.

Re: More Identities

Simon Brown
 

Hi,

 

Correct. There’s quite some structure in SDR Console, sadly I haven’t passed the identity down to the various radio DLLs. This could be done, I would have to run through all radio DLLs. Not ultra-difficult, just would take a few days with very careful testing.

Hi Lorenz,

same issue here but on a Win7 Machine.

Console is starting to transmit. But no HF Out on the lime.

Additional Info at my site:

Killing the SDR Console, when it hangs and goes into App not responding, doesn't really work for me. There's still a background Process in task manager that can't be stopped.

Not via Task Manager, not via pskill. It's really weird.

 

When restarting again, i can select the Lime Mini in the Radio selection, but can't define the Bandwith as the lime is only configured but not accessible.

 

Best regards

Chris

Hi to all - and Simon!

My setup:
WIN10, SDR-C latest copy, limeSDR mini

Has anyone of you experienced this:
You transmit audio (e.g. microphone or FT8 from a virtual cable) and everything runs fine. For some reason which I did not discover yet SDR-C indicates "TX" and incoming audio (see ALC in the attached screenshot at 25% from FT8) but there is no HF-out like you can see in the waterfall.

Is there an explanation for that? This happens sometimes rather soon after starting operation, sometimes after a long time (e.g. one hour) while having QSOs.

 An additional information is: if you would like to close SDR-C in this state it "hangs" and you have to force the closing by clicking 2x at the "close-cross" in the upper right corner of SDR-C´s window. After the second click you see the window embedded below this text. Here finally you can close the program.

Re: Simon - RTL_TCP RF Gain controls missing in V3

Well, he's not working over TCP anymore. If that was his original requirement there is still a problem to deal with.

Re: More Identities

jdow
 

They are also stored in the individual identities. I was going to say what you just said until I remembered what I had seen in appdata in my last foray into the roaming SDRV3 folder and found one of these per identity, SDR-Console-RadioDefns.xml. I am not sure which takes precedence for which parameters. (And I am too lazy to exhaustively test.) I do know that I have different radios defined in each of my identities.

Thanks for the tip, but that wouldn't be possible.
The hardware configuration of the radios is stored in the Windows registry and the approach chosen is indentity independent.
Please take a look on the screenshot of the registry tree of SDR Console:

Would you settle for allowing the same device to have two different "definitions" and names in the select device dialog? One would be set to have a converter on it and the other to be straight through, perhaps with different input/output RF port selections?

That might have better utility and fall within Simon's concepts.

Hi Simon,

thanks for this update :) Do you think it would be possible to have different Radio settings per identity?

What i mean are the settings in this dialog:

I would then configure identity one as my Main HF identity and a second one as Transverter with slightly different settings.

Thanks in advance

Best regards

Hi,

In 3.0.23 there are four more optional identities:

Re: SDR-C and lime - Indication of audio-TX but no HF out

Christian Veith
 

Hi Lorenz,

same issue here but on a Win7 Machine.

Console is starting to transmit. But no HF Out on the lime.

Additional Info at my site:

Killing the SDR Console, when it hangs and goes into App not responding, doesn't really work for me. There's still a background Process in task manager that can't be stopped.

Not via Task Manager, not via pskill. It's really weird.


When restarting again, i can select the Lime Mini in the Radio selection, but can't define the Bandwith as the lime is only configured but not accessible.


Best regards

Chris

Hi to all - and Simon!

My setup:
WIN10, SDR-C latest copy, limeSDR mini

Has anyone of you experienced this:
You transmit audio (e.g. microphone or FT8 from a virtual cable) and everything runs fine. For some reason which I did not discover yet SDR-C indicates "TX" and incoming audio (see ALC in the attached screenshot at 25% from FT8) but there is no HF-out like you can see in the waterfall.

Is there an explanation for that? This happens sometimes rather soon after starting operation, sometimes after a long time (e.g. one hour) while having QSOs.

 An additional information is: if you would like to close SDR-C in this state it "hangs" and you have to force the closing by clicking 2x at the "close-cross" in the upper right corner of SDR-C´s window. After the second click you see the window embedded below this text. Here finally you can close the program.


73 and tnx for thinking,
Lenz

Re: LimeSDR Noise Spike

i give up - that is not a usable image. It looks like it's had material data edited out of it. Check the gain settings is all I can suggest. I'm dropping this.

It appears your email program is incapable of embedding a full size picture as a full size picture. So you must attach it as a file.

All:

I now this has been discussed before. Enclosed I have included a screen shot of Console V3 and my LimeSDR. I just moved back into my old QTH after not being here for a couple of years, so I am working with real antennas and not signal generators!

I distinctly remember solving this noise spike problem where I used to live, and I have followed the procedure listed on the home page. I changed the Visual Gain and Gain per the recommendations, and performed the calibration. Upon completion of the calibration I still get a very noticeable spike.

I feel like I must be missing something, but after playing with this for an hour, I thought maybe someone could see how I am screwing this up.

Thanks in advance!
