Thank You for reply. It is possible to use SDRPlay RSP1A with v2 Console ?

I'll elaborate on that, with V2.3 build 3825 my RSP1A is seen as a RSP2 and although it starts it doesn't appear to receive anything.

My RSP1 works as it should.

I don't think the RSP1A existed when V2.3 was being developed.

AGC, Filters, etc. #sdrconsolev3

rmrrgs
 

Hi

One of the really nice things with this hobby, is that there are alway new
things, at least for me, to learn.

Have started playing around with the AGC (Audio) options.

e.g., the AGC "Noise Reduction": the NR1 thru NR4 settings.

        and the AGC Fast, Med. and Slow, with the threshold,Slope, Hang ,Decay choices:

Have read Simons writeup on them, and have experimented, but it's obvious that I truly don't 
understand the interactions of these, what the adjustments are really doing, etc., etc.

Surprisingly, the AGC set to OFF seems to be best for my am listening, which proves, probably, that I don't understand how to set.

Would like to understand, and be able to utilize at a better level than "just seeing what works best"

a.   Is there, anywhere, a good beginner's writeup and explanation on both of the above ?

 b.   and, what default values do you folks use for the various modes, etc. ?  Does what you use change with time, e.g. ?

Thanks, stay well,
Bob

Re: Band Plan (like in SDRsharp) #feature #request

Paul White
 

My "quickie" contribution.
 
For "Band Plan" read "Frequency Allocation".
 
Visual "band" identification is certainly an attractive feature but there are some good reasons why it is not more widely implemented - unless we limit the scope to just the few dozen broadcast and amateur bands.
 
If Simon wants to host any user-populated "plan", that's fine. But "complicated" is what you get in real life. And you're playing with fire by fiddling the structure and inventing stuff like "channels" or "sub-bands".
 
I have messed with "band plans" before and failed to come up with a satisfying answer. My approach was:
 
(a) based on ITU's region-based frequency allocation table
(b) with option to add areal/national allocation variations
(c) and option to add areal/national allotments to block or perhaps channel level
(d) plus (ideally) extensible to frequency assignments
 
A data model covering the first two is not overly complex, but data had to be entered manually as no structured electronic format was available. Any comprehensive and workable system would need a database populated and updated easily from electronic source data (ITU and available administrations).
 
That basic framework is all very well except that:
 
(e) frequency range and allocation "footnotes" (for ITU regions and areal/national) were desirable, especially for understanding shared allocations
(f) many "service" range allocations deserve individual naming - for example the various broadcast and amateur bands, analogue TV Bands IV and V, etc
(g) arguably, "services" need grouping into (possibly multiple) categories
(h) and an uneasy feeling that many range allocations deserve subdivision into band plans
 
Ranges from the database (filtered for receiver coverage) are easily translated into GUI ribbons and a text window (perhaps outline-style) but there would surely be a demand for user configuration of options, notably:
 
(i) filtering by service/region/area/nation (single, multiple)
(j) a display strategy for shared allocations
(k) how to accommodate multiple regions/areas/nations
 
Life is too short.

DXtreme logger moves tuning but doesn’t change frequency #cat

Chris
 

The CAT control between DXtreme and SDR Console 3.0.23 with RSPdx receiver appears to work fine but only changes the displayed tuning and doesn’t change the actual receive tuning.
i click on a scheduled station, the green tuning display bar changes to the expected frequency in SDR Console, the indicated frequency changes in SDR Console, but the radio is still playing the old frequency.
If I mute and I mute the radio, it switches to the new frequency.
Manual tuning using mouse works fine, it’s just CAT that’s not working.

Same setup works fine using SDRUno.

Any hints?

Never had any problems with W10 AV. Some software advises disabling AV before installing. I think that Simon signing his software means it can be trusted and there are very few in this market place that do that.

I’m not a developer but if a dll is supplied by a hardware manufacturer, part of the blame must rest with them? Or maybe think again about your choice of AV.

Brilliant!  the "mono" to "stereo" setting was the cause and having changed it, all is back to normal now - thank you all for the analysis/suggestion. 
it is a CCW SDR4+ [quite old now] and it is using the DG8SAQ-i2C definitions &, yes it is W10 professional and I am still learning.......

Hey SDR users.
Is SDR Console rock solid stable in your setups?
And how big band width can be utilized and stille maintain stability.

Re: Band Plan (like in SDRsharp) #feature #request

This seems overly complicated. See how SDR# does this - BandPlan.xml file in attachment. It is edited with just a text editor, and the editor within SDR Console could just be a simple list. This is my modified version, note how I split the TV broadcast bands III, IV and V into individual channels. I'd like to be able to do something like that in SDR Console as well - maybe an ability to add labelled sub-bands to a band, so I don't have to add "Band #" to the description of every channel's label? Also overlapping bands would have to be handled properly which SDR# doesn't do well.

Hallo Bammi

I don't have the schematic at hand, but I'll do it in a day or two anyway to complete the documentation. So I'll put it here when it will be ready. :-)
Thanks for your interest.

BTW I tried to get it directly from Fritzing, but I think it's not so clear.

Hi Andrea,
Thanks for sharing this, i'll certainly build it out and play. Per chance do you have a schematic view instead of the Fritzing diagram. Only if you have it already and handy, little easier to read than the Fritzing diagram.

Re: Band Plan (like in SDRsharp) #feature #request

For my own playing I looked into this concept. I'd intended to make a tool for creating the SDRSharp band plan list. There is WAY too much custom editing I would have had to do.

Different parts of the world have different band plans and privileges
within portions of the band. To top it off Different parts of the United States have different band plans and privileges within portions of the band. A really prime example is the 70cm band. And that's not enough, different license levels have different band plans and privileges within portions of the band.

I gave up.

Re: #Future - Add support to Auto Mute to still visuliase waterfall and spectrum when activated #future

Martin_Smyth
 

Its an option, but not really suitable from a 1940's AM valve transmitter.  It would be more practical to take the PC speaker lines through one of the transmit relay contacts in the valve transmitter, just to automatically turn the speaker off.  Considering I (and others) use multiple vintage valve transmitters from the 1940's, it wouldn't be practical. 
It would be far more practical if the audio muting was completed automatically within the software' just like the perseus software does.
As mentioned before, I think the "Automute" is labelled wrongly.  Perhaps "Auto Pause" is better, since I really am just looking for an Automute where only the audio is muted.

Many thanks for your support.
