CW Skimmer decoded bandwidth

Grant Rawstorn VK2LX
 

Hi all
Is anyone achieving a decoded bandwidth greater than about 23KHz in CW Skimmer? Is this possible? I note a few past posts about the setup but did not see anything specifically addressing this question unless I missed it.
I am using Virtual Audio Cable as per the setup here - https://www.sdr-radio.com/cw-skimmer
Its a good weekend to try it as there is a contest on and 20M is packed with CW.
Cheers
Grant

I keep waiting to see if anyone starts producing a decent down convertor.
The electrosense project seems to have not had the uptake they hoped, surprised people didn't want to "contribute their local rf spectrum and data sniffing to corporations" that want to grab it all, for free....

But anyway, I was after a convertor, not sure if anyone here has actually tried it.

HI Guys,

I've noticed if you click the minimize window button on satellites window the dde stops being transmitted for orbitron rotator.  When I maximise the dde resumes.

Thanks Steve M0ZEH

What antennas are you using on 80 Meters Simon , I am very interested in this project .

Thanks, but it's not a network issue. SDR# connects and works just dandy. I've always used a static address for Spyserver.

Have you downloaded the latest? Your error indicates a missing install of Microsoft redistributable libraries. I just checked, the latest version automatically installs the library.

Re: RSPdx does not start in SDR-Console. #sdrplay

Steve, it looks to me that you are still using the V2 definition not V3. You did say your have v 3.06 of the API but you need to use the v3 definition in Console. Look at my log file where the radio is selected to see how it looks with the v3 definition. 

Try deleting you RSPdx definition and then add it back but make sue you use V3.

Note that there is no standard SDR interface.

The x to 6GHz front ends that come to mind are "if you have to ask how much they cost they are not for you."

The ADALM-Pluto officially covers up to 3.8 GHz. It uses the AD9363 transceiver chip which appears to be an AD9361 that did not meet full specifications. So it MIGHT work, after a fashion, up to 6 GHz if you get a lucky break on the chip in any given ADALM-Pluto. (Some of the old ones had a real 9361 in them. But you'd have to find somebody who wanted to sell such a box in full working order on E-Bay or something.)

Does anyone know of a receiver only SDR that follows normal standard SDR interfacing that covers up to 6GHz?
I know the HackRFOne and the bladeRF 2.0 do go up to 6GHz, but I don't need a transmitter, nor the extra cost of it.

That sounds like a network issue. But, the common issue would mean it would not be discovered. If it picks up a dynamic address on your network it MAY be on a different address than 10.0.0.20. If that is the case you may need to doctor your router's DNS settings so that the AirSpy server has a fixed address.

Try running the discovery again and replacing the definition you have. That shows the address and you can compare to see if it changed.

Get the HackRF1. Yes, it can transmit but many only use it to receive. And there is software out there for it. You are not going to find anything cheaper for what you want. Chinese versions can be bought for about $150 in a case and they are fine. (In fact, sad to say, recently I was involved in a project where US manufactured versions had issues that the Chinese did not despite supposedly being the same design and the US cost more).

I have a LimeSDR Mini and a USRP but available software makes the HackRF1 the first choice.

go and get a pluto

ok you wrote tx is not needed (count that as a bonus)

with the tx and rx you can use it as an analyzer (to sweep filters or measure antennas) ... (yes another bonus ... you get a measurement device with your sdr)

i do not know any cheaper sdr that goes up to 6 gig

Thank you Simon.
I will explore WAV RF64 more, and see where that gets me.

<facepalm> oh, yeah, Windows.  :-P

after some rebooting excitement in the form of BSOD reported to be caused by portcls.sys (PAGE FAULT IN NON-PAGED AREA) .. cured by a proper power down and restart without the 'magic' saved kernel state ..  works. 

rudimentary, but works. i've updated the shuttle config so the shuttle ring is a coarse tune and the jog is a fine tune.

Ideally you want a C band LNB, then you can use any of the radios you mention. But finding a cheap one maybe not so easy.

All,

I try to hunt for how to setup / activate an  CMD PL-1. I tough you selected midi controller then select what buttons you want to activate and save the file. Is there anything else that  needs to be done .

Over the years I've learned that a CBN_DROPDOWN handler on the combobox that goes out and enumerates what it can find right now rather than caching what could be found at program startup is a really good user friendly feature.
