VGA cables do this, too. I am not sure about HDMI. There are a lot of HDMI cables with glowing advertising and claims that aren't really up to snuff. Linus Tech Tips has the testing on youtube. I am guessing much the same goes for USB3 cables and Ethernet cables and....

If the shielding is grounded then the HF protection from the shielding alone could be quite high. The OP "confirmed that there is continuity between the shells of each connector".

Eliminating? You'd be lucky to get 25 dB. Those are small ferrites for HF coverage.

This is a tough one because the makers claim of being "screened" or shielded may or may not mean anything as far as being a quality cable and help tame RFI issues.

In my prior tempest life before specifying a certain cable assembly we would of course run tests in the lab. It was convenient working for a large defense firm as we had access to SEM and x-ray facilities just a few hall ways away. You would be shocked how many commercial cables we x-ray'ed showed that while they did provide some form of shield (usually a thin cheap aluminum foil) where the ends were 100% totally unterminated. Only a few we found actually terminated the shield to the case which is a must if the shielding is to do any good. Just wrapping a cable in foil buys you ziltch.

That shipping price is crazy; however, it's either the seller or you don't have Prime. I cannot precisely tell from the screen-shot. This link has them for $4.95 + free shipping w/ Prime. I have bought several of these, and they're quite nice.

Re: Midi Controllers

BobS
 

Does SDR-Console support any keyboard shortcuts, like + or - or such, to allow for tuning? I ask because I use the Griffin PowerMate for many radio programs as a tuning knob and also to change modes or frequency steps if the program has a shortcut. While no longer in production, they can be found on the secondary market. It works fine with Windows 11.

However, I cannot seem to find any direct keyboard shortcuts to use with SDR-Console. What I do is daisy-chain another radio control program into SDR-Console via the Kenwood CAT emulation.

It is quite nice to have a bona fide tuning knob. It's simply a better interface than a mouse or keyboard.

Re: server port number.

Kriss Kliegle KA1GJU
 

You can use any port, but choose wisely. One must avoid ports that other apps use, such as Kenwoods ARHP-590, Icom’s RS-BA1, and the plethora of game apps.
50000 through 59999 are usually safe from all the other apps.
To get an idea of what ports are reserved:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_TCP_and_UDP_port_numbers

Long ago I used a 5000 block port, but things went catawampus within a day or so. Back up to 50xxx I went and all is well in the SDRC Server kingdom.

If it’s on a Pi then it’ll be running the SDR# SpyServer I assume, so follow the SpyServer installation, then in Console:

Thanks Simon,

I have reviewed the “server manger” several times, but I just can’t connect to my Airspy discovery which is on my LAN and connected to my PI Raspberry 4. I put the address and port, but it keeps telling me connection refused.

I just want to connect only on my LAN. Now I can do this with Spyserver, which is o my PI and SDR# on my new i& 6ore NUC, But just cannot connect with SDRC

Re: Midi Controllers

Siegfried Jackstien
 

Hi Steve

Mine is an EKS XP-5 ... (a bit older ... can sometimes be found used for a few bucks in evilbay)

Half of the buttons got an autorepeat ... if you want to tune in 1 kc steps, only holding of the button is needed (not pushing and pushing and pu...wearing out the buttons)

as an example you want to change drive from 50 to 70 ... no need to push +DRV 20 times ... push once and hold for a while

that ekx has a nice graphical editor. Any button can play any midinote, with or without autorepeat, single action or range (button or turn knob/slider) and if you are crazy you can combine buttons

only one slider and one wheel?? no problem .. you can COMBINE buttons (with other buttons, with the wheel, or with the slider)

say simon adds RIT (and no free know cause THERe ARE NO TURN KNOBS ...

configure a "switch wheel to rit" button ... push button and turn wheel (changes rit) ... release button wheel is again normal vfo

for now i only combined the touch sensor with the wheel (100hz and 10hz steps), but other things could be added

greetz sigi dg9bfc

ps if you find one used ... drop me a mail to get driver and presets and mappings , READY TO USE!!

Re: Midi Controllers

Siegfried Jackstien
 

Hello Steve

in principle (or better say in fact) you can use ANY midi deck

use one that fits your needs ... as an example i wanted one with only ONE turn wheel (vfo) not two ... and with just a few buttons (and not a dozen of turn knobs that are unused)

see my layout in the picture

... ok to answer your question ... yes a new behringer will work (and a dozen others)
