Re: RSP TCP Server #rsp1a

This is working well and "stutters" less than using a windows 10 laptop.  I have to use max gain (59) though, when I first tried it I had no visible signals and I thought it was not working but the gains was too low.

One strange thing that might be nothing to do with the server, the geo beacon screen goes blank after several minutes sometimes but the sync function is still operating.

I’m sorry I can’t help with the problem but both images open fine for me in the Edge browser.

Perhaps a timing issue across the net?

Max, if you still want to see them, I can download them and mail them. See sig for my address.

Hi Mike

Not sure if just me but I cannot open the attachments. I see "Bad Request" response. Wonder if it could possibly be the % character in the filenames?

I couldn't open them either and the two on your second post have different URLs from what they had in the first post.

Audio Out

Mike Bott
 

Is it a valid to question the differences in the audio out of two SDR packages?

I routinely run SDR-Console and SDRuno.  For most of my listening, each is more than capable.  However, if I'm recording the audio or I'm decoding digital, I find the SDRuno's audio output has quite a larger volume range than SDR Console.  As an example, the two attached screen shots show the audio being recorded by Audacity at a 50% output level.  To get the same audio output from Console, I need to have the volume slider at 85% or more.

Why such apparent difference in audio output levels?

Subject: [SDR-Radio] Arduino CAT communication with SDR-Console

 

I am trying to use an Arduino MEGA to obtain the current frequency that the SDR-Console is set to using the supported CAT commands. I am using an SDRPlay RSP1A receiver and the PC is running Windows 10. I have both the Arduino and SDR-Console ports set to COM10, and am using serial.print  to send the required FA; command. Here is the code:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

int inByte = 0;         // incoming serial byte

 

void setup() {

  // start serial port at 9600 bps:

  Serial.begin(9600);

  while (!Serial) {

    ; // wait for serial port to connect. Needed for native USB port only

  }

  while (Serial.available() <= 0) {

    Serial.print("FA;");   // sends CAP Frequency Read command

    delay(4000);

  }

}  

 

void loop() {

  // if we get a valid byte, read analog ins:

  if (Serial.available() > 0) {

    // get incoming byte:

    inByte = Serial.read();

    Serial.write(inByte);

  }
-------------------------------------------------------------

The code in the loop section is not correct to get the full frequency but at this point, I am just trying to get the FA; command recognized and responded to. Using the I/O Monitor, I can see that there is activity on COM10 every four seconds, but the FA; command is not being received. However, using the Arduino IDE serial monitor, I can see that the FA; code is being sent. If anyone knows what changes I need to make so that SDR-Console recognizes and responds to the FA; command, I would very much appreciate your sharing the solution.

Uncertain if this helps, but it does use the FlexRadio USB Kernel driver.
Think that you'd get a lot of bang for the amount of work required, not just for Genesis, but for the FlexRadio series.
I also have one of these (not quite finished) and I plan on adding the external filters/power amplifier.
It's currently the only SDR that I have will transmit.

Putting this in context, to a recording engineer (of which I am, among other things), vintage hardware is gold, even if its not 100% up to scratch. I've had this discussion with others, and part of the "nostalgia" of vintage recording, includes hiss, hum, etc., in an effort to reproduce the "sound" of bygone era's. Of course, these are VST plugin's of virtual instruments that don't exist in real life. In our hobby, SDR is the closest analogy to virtual radio.

As someone suggested (in their next lifetime), Simon's next iteration of SDRC could be a virtual Collin's R390. Boy, that has so much possibilities, adding virtual CRT scopes, that glorious "eye", etc.





Re: Very Pretty!

R390A please. Skip the R390. The A version is the gold. The R390 only captures silver.

Aside from that, stop digging around in my mind. (I figure with some shaft encoders, a NUC, an AirSpy HF+, and SDRC I could emulate the R390A with something almost as much fun to use.)

Having dabbled in desktop music myself, I can tell you that musicians seem to be easily impressed by fancy GUIs almost more than the performance of the virtual instruments.  You could make the world's best audio processor but if its GUI consisted only of standard Windows controls no one would buy it.

Hallo Sigi
Drivers installiert. Windows findet drive nicht (meistens), wenn power USB angeschlossen ist. Ziehe power USB ab, findet Windows den Pluto
Ich habe den Verdacht, dass vielleicht ein USB Isolator zur galvanischen Trennung noetig ist, da alles direkt zusammengeschaltet ist.

Re: External Radio not working #sdrconsolev3

roy@...
 

Eventually found the problem.

I had to delete everything in the registry for HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SDR-RADIO.com (V3)\Console\Ident0 

and

C:\Users\<myusername>\AppData\Roaming\SDR-RADIO.com (V3)\Console\Ident0.

Then started the whole process again by ticking the box in More Options for the External Radio and restarted the program.

What a PITA


Re: Pluto #adalmpluto

Frank Schneider
 

If I plug in the power USB only,from an external supply, I get one solid blue led and one with a double flash, but no comms of course.
I plug in the USB from the computer, the LED status does not change, but Console does not see Pluto.
I pull out the power cable, the LEDs are still the same, and all works.
Re-starting Pluto and computer is not helping.
