Solved. It's Brazil. 
I found some clearer clips.

Re: Airspy R2 and RX888

Paul,

I have the R2 and the very latest RX888 Mk2 (in fact I have everything). I don't have my Band II Yagi on a rotator atm, that'll happen on Thursday, so signals are not super strong as I'm beaming away from England to France.

Summary: this latest RX888 is not at all bad.

I know of at least two similar devices which will appear from other companies in 2021, I am already working with one company whose device works but is not ready for 'prime time'.

Attached is a screenshot of the RX888 in action on FM Stereo.

For anyone with an RX888, as it uses an R820T2 above 30MHz has anyone compared the VHF performance to the R2?

Here's a link for what I posted here a year or so ago, on how to use the server feature:

External Radio / Omnirig has become unstable.

HERB KEATON N2GEW
 

Greetings:
I am using SDR Console Version 3.0.20 with the Airspy HF+ as a panadpater for the Kenwood TS-990S transceiver. 
It has proven to be a knockout configuration that I would not be without. 

After a year of relatively trouble free operation with radio control through the Omni-Rig program and the External radio
functionality in SDRC, I am now having issues with External radio going from "online" to "offline" or "not responding" during all recent radio
sessions. This might happen several minutes in or it might go a while longer but eventually I get a windows notification
tone and I know I am in trouble. I can restart SDRC and usually re-establish the handshake, or I can go
to Omni-Rig and look over the settings and move between Rig 1 and 2 and usually re-establish the link.

I used to have HRD as a complimentary program for rig control but I found the functionality too limited so I have abandoned
that. I believe I set up a serial pair with Virtual Serial Port Driver to enable the HRD handshake. That shows now as 
Rig 1 and Com Port 15 (Com Port 14 was the other side of the pair when I was using HRD). However, I also have the same
TS-990S as Rig 2 (same .ini file definitions in Rig 1 and Rig 2, TS-990 (1)) Rig 2 is on Com Port 8 which shows as "Generic USB Hub" and "Silicone Labs CP210x USB to UART Bridge".

Just now this happened: a windows notification and "TS-990 (1) Not Responding". If I open up Omni-Rig (? in External radio), I see Rig 2 "Not Responding". Then to Omni-Rig Setting and I open RIG 2. Of course, Com Port 8 is shown. Saying OK to that Rig 2 Settings Tab puts me back Online.

I am inclined now to eliminate this confusion and go with only one Rig in Omni-Rig. I don't know if that will "fix it"?
Sorry for the confusing mess here but any thoughts and feedback would be appreciated.

73'
Herb



Experimenting has obviously led to this situation where I assigned the same radio with different Com Ports. But, I had little issues for over a year and now I am experiencing much more instability.

If it is a Japanese radio the nylon connectors are lnot made by Molex but a Japanese company JST.

Mine is rather deaf @ VHF & UHF: 0.6 uV for 12 dB SINAD. The weird part is that throwing a bunch of gain ahead of it actually works - it doesn't overload. I suspect some sort of design flaw in the VHF/UHF front-end, or maybe I just got a bad one?

The R2's NF is 6-7 dB - same as my Airspy Mini. Much higher than the claimed 3.5 dB NF, but not bad IMO.

thank you
By the way is it easy to add separate signal history for each receiver in multi radio instances ? It was a log awaited idea sine the 3.0.14 version!

Issue version 3.0.26 Server doesn't list SDR PLUTO

Dear Simon,

 

Isuue on Server Sdr Console.

 

In the last version when you try to insert in SERVER the device SDR PLUTO doesn’t appear. Seems an issue on the loading of the list.

 

 

Please check if you find the same problem.

Any help is very appreciated.
