Seriously, for just a few people?

 

If it’s *so* important then maybe AMSAT-DL could write a solution? Remote transmit support is a nightmare (albtraum).

 

  • Legal considerations
  • User support
  • Networking

 

At the moment I have no desire to open that can of worms…

Simon,
Most important thing you can do right now is to take good care of yourself. Enjoy life. Smell the roses as they say.

Re: 3.1 Betas

That has some good aspects and some bad aspects with the two sets overlapping heavily. Simon would have to learn and practice Linus Torvalds management skills. ("This code looks like s....!") And even then it would wander away from what Simon envisions his legacy to be. It would be nice if the code was setup to become publicly readable but not modifiable without forking the project. Then new front end modules could be built as necessarily yet the main code could be unchanged, for some people, and a springboard for other people.

For myself, I'd be happy with a mid to high level description of the code and signal path through the receiver. What DSP technology did he use to achieve various functionality without delving into the code. "How does a genius do it?" For example it APPEARS that he is taking overlapped FFTs of the whole bandwidth of the front end and creating band pass filters centered on frequencies the user selects for each receiver. One FFT, N windows, and N reverse FFTs, and some other processing before it gets to audio.

Re: Cordless phone RFI

Siegfried Jackstien
 

GOOD CATCH ... especially the cordless phone (i never thought that a dect phone on 1.8 gig wipes out shortwave on 160 and 80)

also look for the psu of the base unit (those switchers can be noisy) ... either try to filter it out ... or replace the switcher

Am 23.08.2021 um 12:11 schrieb Allan Isaacs:

I've been plagued by interference on the 80m band for ages and decided to have yet another attempt at tracing its source.
For the test I used an SDR PLay sitting on my desk connected via a USB cable (A plug to B plug) to a computer USB3 socket and a long wire antenna.
I initially looked at narrow spikes every 8KHz from 1.7MHz to 3.752MHz. These were very stable across the range and roughly equal in strength at about -80dBm. I got rid of these by changing the USB lead from a grey one marked Xingong USB Shielded High Speed Revision 2 28AWG/1P + 24AWG/2C to an ancient one, orange in colour with GP on one end. The second cable is fitted with a ferrite ring and reduced the spikes by 18dB to -98dBm. The same ferrite ring had no effect on the first cable.
The next problem was a really annoying pulsing sound producing regular horizontal lines on the waterfall a bit like noise from an electric fence. This was at a rate of 7 pulses per second and I eventually found it was emanating from my cordless phone base unit. Lifting the phone (Siemens Gigaset C430) stopped the pulsing and after replacing it the pulsing restarted after about 30 seconds.
Looking for an RF signal I found this at 1.887GHz. This was relatively stable but slight pulsing was apparent.
A second identical handset in another room was also radiating and pulsing.
The solution was really easy. On the first phone I selected settings, ECO DECT, ticked No Radiation and unticked Maximum Range.
The RF signal disappeared, the trace went completely flat and the pulsing vanished.
I'm now left with just general background mush from countless switching power supplies and the phone but this is now at a fairly low level.
Lifting the phone reduces the level of mush from -98dBm to -104dBm so the next step might be to fit ferrite rings to the base unit power cable and telephone line...

Hi Simon

 

I downloaded and installed the latest Beta kit. Latency and dropouts seem much improved with my Sdrplay RSP2. Thank you.

Re: 3.1 Betas

I could do lots of things, including:

 

  • Getting a new POTY installed
  • Getting my 70cms station working
  • Working 2m Tropo
  • Cleaning the gutters on the house
  • Cleaning the house
  • Mowing the lawn
  • Watching the ladies play gold in front of the house (2nd tee)

 

You could learn the art of software engineering 😊 .

 

Will be good weather this week.

You could add auto engage for geobeacon in a 1 to 2 kc wide search window... (my tcxo modded lnb drifts maximum 1kc over the day)...

And to try it on your own.. Mount your donated feed (has a similar lnb mounted inside wjth a 0.2ppm tcxo) 

On each start of sdrc v3 i have to catch the beacon and engage locking (press "play" button in beacon window) 

An auto engage would be a nice add on..

And a positiv feedback how well the modded lnb works also would be superb ;-)

Do not wait until winter.. Or you will maybe tell me that it is too cold outside for antenna work (grin)

You wrote you can not do much more... Ok looking on performance you are right.. Cpu load is now very low.. Only thing you can do is some cosmetics.. Solve a few wishes from the todo list.. 

What about adding the values from the power amp to the meters tab in tx box?!? (now meters tab is just a placeholder)...we have already discussed that.... Where do i find the hidden switch for dab decode (joking a bit) 

And what really would be superb.. A backup and restore file for ALL settings.. So if you want to install sdrc v3 on a second pc with similar settings that you can import the settings file from the other pc... With all settings saved in a single file and an import function. Be it filter settings or equalizer or agc or whatever

"do you really want to import these settings?? Yes/no" .... And if user press yes that the setup then is like on the other pc... No idea how complicated that is... But i am sure many users would like to have such a backup and restore function... 

What do others think?? What is the most needed feature in sdrc v3??? I am quite sure if you ask here in the group a lot of users would answer backup and restore

Thanks – first feedback. I find the sample rate from the RSP can wander a bit until it warms up, then it’s fine. Oh I had some bad code in the SDRplay support…

Cordless phone RFI

Allan Isaacs
 

I've been plagued by interference on the 80m band for ages and decided to have yet another attempt at tracing its source.
For the test I used an SDR PLay sitting on my desk connected via a USB cable (A plug to B plug) to a computer USB3 socket and a long wire antenna.
I initially looked at narrow spikes every 8KHz from 1.7MHz to 3.752MHz. These were very stable across the range and roughly equal in strength at about -80dBm. I got rid of these by changing the USB lead from a grey one marked Xingong USB Shielded High Speed Revision 2 28AWG/1P + 24AWG/2C to an ancient one, orange in colour with GP on one end. The second cable is fitted with a ferrite ring and reduced the spikes by 18dB to -98dBm. The same ferrite ring had no effect on the first cable.
The next problem was a really annoying pulsing sound producing regular horizontal lines on the waterfall a bit like noise from an electric fence. This was at a rate of 7 pulses per second and I eventually found it was emanating from my cordless phone base unit. Lifting the phone (Siemens Gigaset C430) stopped the pulsing and after replacing it the pulsing restarted after about 30 seconds.
Looking for an RF signal I found this at 1.887GHz. This was relatively stable but slight pulsing was apparent.
A second identical handset in another room was also radiating and pulsing.
The solution was really easy. On the first phone I selected settings, ECO DECT, ticked No Radiation and unticked Maximum Range.
The RF signal disappeared, the trace went completely flat and the pulsing vanished.
I'm now left with just general background mush from countless switching power supplies and the phone but this is now at a fairly low level.
Lifting the phone reduces the level of mush from -98dBm to -104dBm so the next step might be to fit ferrite rings to the base unit power cable and telephone line...
