Simon,
 
I have the original RX888. The release notes mention " HF Gain only works with the RX888 Mk2"
 
Will you be supporting HF Gain for the original RX888 in the future?

No,

 

Trust me – the crash dump clearly showed that the DLL could not be loaded. Please run Depends – I’ll get another development system started up and we can look at this.

Same crash. (I use Win-10's built-in Avirus. Added an exception for the folder).

The DLL is SDRFFTHelper.dll

I have this; it was not deleted.

My guess it's this Intel IPP thing. That's what a !analyze -v in WinDbg said.

Hello David, how about using a midi controller?

I am a blind person and as the current version of Simons excellent software does not support many keyboard commands I am currently researching this option.

Bandwidth is always a bit confusing to me.

Might someone please explain for me the difference between
"Bandwidth" in the /Home menu, and the "Bandwidth" option
that comes up by clicking on the small keyboard iconn at the bottom-right of the screen ?
(the Radio Frequency screen that appears)

If I jus want to change the Spectrum SCAN that is showing, without changing
anything else, which, or what, do I do ?  [without using the Zoom vertical slider]

Thanks,

Re: 3.0.27 Preview

A DLL of mine could not be loaded, my first guess is that anti-virus deleted it?

 

  • Try without anti-virus active
  • The DLL is SDRFFTHelper.dll
  • If you know how to use Depends this would help determine what’s gone wonky: https://www.sdr-radio.com/depends .

 

If we can’t diagnose this then I’ll have to make special kits for you.

I would like to put forward the idea of adding a separate satellite tracker that would not require SDR Console to be open (like Simon's World Map but with satellite tracking). It could still be able to control direct tuning of RX or TX freq's in SDR Console or could also be used in tandem with other SDR programs. In my honest opinion your satellite tracker is the cleanest of all that I have come across.

How does one scan the frequencies I have entered into, say, bank 1?
Hi Gedas

There is no scanner on SDRC yet. It is on Simon's "to-do" list. Think he said may possibly be added later this year.

As a sort of temporary alternative, you can set up multiple receivers and even view them all simultaneously in the Receiver Matrix, then use squelch to silence inactive channels. You can have up to 24 receivers running simultaneously, and groups of 24 can each be stored as a "Favourite". To store batches of frequencies Favourites is a lot more powerful than Memories in the parameters they store:

https://www.sdr-radio.com/Favourites

Sorry, I know it's not the answer you wanted, but Simon is just one person and SDRC is a truly brilliant program for SDRs. The truth is that possibly the majority of users of SDRC (I'm going by the average type of question asked in the Forums) are radio amateurs using it for transceive operations, so scanner possibly not highest on list of the average user's priorities, but it's worth hanging around as new features are added all the time.

Is it possible to have SDR Console scan a memory bank I have established? I have 10 or so frequencies that I would like to monitor once there is activity on that freq. I am using a SDRPLAY RSPdx. Thank you
