Correct.

Map65 requires some bit twiddling before the IQ is sent via UDP...

Re: Ettus B200/B210

Hi Francesco,

-Ability to monitor two swaths of band at a time. 
-Hook up an upconverter to one of the inputs permanently for HF coverage while usinng the second for whatever

I'm currently using a b210 in openwebrx and although it doesn't support both inputs I have another device inline to swtich an upconverter in and out and another profile that corrects for the frequency offset. GQRX and other linux based software seems to work fine. I only briefly used the B210 in SDR Console. Note that you'll need a pretty beefy computer at higher bandwidths (32msps) especially if you're using both inputs.

Good Luck
-Justin

Hi Bob

As with CW Skimmer, you need to designate one VAC for audio out (or to speakers) and a separate VAC just for the CWS output to avoid issues with audio contaminating the IQ, but seems Simon is saying the IQ is a non-standard output so guess it was not a great suggestion on my part.

Excuse me if this is an incorrect suggestion, but if you need data generated from IQ out via VAC to input to MAP65 why can you not use the IQ output already provided within SDRC for CW Skimmer?
Just for fun I tried using the CW Skimmer option as a raw I-Q output to feed HDSDR on a 192k VAC. It seems to work, but the signal has to be centered in the spectrum display (click the >|< button). Also make sure the RX output is muted, as you'll only want the output from CW Skimmer.

Ettus B200/B210

Francesco Di Giovanni
 

Hi all,
I am tented to buy an Ettus Research B200/B210 receiver.
The difference between B200 and B210 is that the B210 has 2 RXs and 2 TXs
Considered that the B210 costs a lot more than the B200, what are the practical benefits to have 2 RTXs?.
I am interested mainly in listening.

Well I'm listening to NBFM signals on HDSDR via the HiFI VAC on my system being fed by the CW Skimmer option in SDRC. So as I say it does seem to work. It's just that the RX frequency is not determined by a VRX, but rather by the center tuning.

Re: 3.0.26

Binaural AM is a nice tool!

It gives an instant "audible" representation of the total AM signal.
You can pin-point immediately by ear which sideband is distorted, if splatter is coming from left or right, which sideband has a carrier or noise intruding.

A different approach to analyze & clean up a challenging AM signal.
Nice idea!

(And quite remarkable to hear selective fading literally spinning around your head ;-)

Substitute cables
Substitute USB routing to a different hub
Reduce load on the USB system,

After that you will have to look at your computer to see if it is too weak to handle the load. Reducing display size, update rate, and spectrum resolution come to mind.

I had been getting the disconnect and connect sounds from Windows frequently and because my 4-port USB extension hub is on the bench in front of me I bump or move the cables often and a disconnect would occur.  I didn't have any TV tuner spray from years ago but do have a couple of the little bottles of a red contact cleaner that were supplied with every Bristol chart recorder we used for building systems at my work place back in the 1970's.  Great stuff!  I just dip a small screwdriver into the liquid and capture a couple drops to transfer to the connector contacts.  Voila!  No more ♪bleep-bloop♪ intermittencies.

Isopropyl alcohol would work temporarily to clean the contacts but contact cleaner leaves a film that helps prevent oxidation.  Replacing the connector isn't too difficult if need be.

Al,

This appears to be a USB problem.
Maybe bad lead, bad socket, or even a fault in the computer.
