Problems with SDR Console

jimbo111@...
 

Hello everyone,
Jim here. My goal today was to get WSJT/x working. Console had been working since a friend
helped me initialize it a week or so ago.  It quit tracking the frequency on my IC-7300.
The only new program was OmniRig. I thought I had installed and set up OmniRig correctly,
but apparently not.

I've tried everything i can think of but no joy.

Thanks for any help. 73

Ah the difference is that your Airspy US products started life at $199, whereas the Itead ones have always been $169.
In the sale both sources end up at $126.75

Happy Thanksgiving Bob!

   When using the Website (like I always do),

click on reply, then there's the little paper clip do-dad on the bar above. Click on that, and that will attach the image vs imbedding it into the text. The latter will reduce the pixels to make it mostly unreadable. Be sure to have the DSP window in view and use SDRC's screen shot icon, not PRT SCN key on keyboard! There are lots of key info on lower sidebar when diagnosing issues, as well as settings in the DSP that are commonly horked up!

Screenshot Posting ?

Hello,
A Happy Thanksgiving to all.

I have a screenshot of some "new" noise pulses that have appeared that I would like
to Post here for any comments or thoughts as to what might be causing.

How should I do this, please ?
    some way of appending to a Post like this one, or how to put in Photos, or...?

Thanks,
B.

Hello Guys,

There are some programs to receive DATV-Signals:

For DVB-S/S2 using DVB-S-GUI from Amsat-DL. 
Also SDR-Angel works for sending and receiving DVB-S/S2 Signals. In my opinion its a littlebit difficult to make this work.

Sending DVB-T/T2 and DVB-S/S2 works with SDR-Pluto/Lime SDR and DATV-Express.

Transmitting Analog Video works also with SDR-Angel.

Hope this answer will help you a little bit.

I have been searching and watching for quite a while myself to make use of my SDRplay RSPdx for receiving analog (AM) NTSC TV.  I tried using an older version of SDR# as noted from a Google search that still supports using ExtIO.dll along with the TV plugin from Russia (Basil Vasili) but I get a runtime error saying the plugin is newer than the SDR# program.  Then on later SDR# the ExtIO is no longer supported to get comm with the RSPdx receiver.  I wish someone would make a fix for this.  The SDRplay folks apparently don't want to provide support other than making an ExtIO_SDRplay_RSPdx.dll available and I haven't seen much of any plugin development for SDRuno.

Why support for analog TV?  This mode is superior to digital TV for long distances.  Enhanced propagation modes allow us to work several hundred miles on 70cm.  We use commercial SAW filters with a 10-position switch to reduce the receive bandwidth to 352 kHz for video exchange only (we don't care about audio or color subcarriers - this is strictly bw video only using large black call letters to improve readability).  Hams in Europe also filter their transmitted signal to reduce the bandwidth for dx and contesting.

I don't know of an automatic signal identification program.  There are web sites that provide numerous sample recordings of various modes.  For example http://www.w1hkj.com/FldigiHelp-3.21/Modes/ provides what it looks like on a waterfall, spectrum and the sound.

Re: TV Decoders ? #sdrplay

Over-The-Air TV is using one of a family of standards collectively called ATSC [ https://bit.ly/3l8B0XH ].  In Europe over the air there is a different standard called DVB-T [ https://bit.ly/3cL1U3h ] or (more recently DBV-T2).  Cable in the US (at least) uses QAM [ https://bit.ly/3CUg4tr ] which is routinely encrypted, but a subset called Clear-QAM that is not encrypted does exist.  Current FCC (USA agency) rules permit encrypting everything on the cable, and companies are moving to do that (sigh).

RTL-SDR.com has nice explanations and software listing also for beginners (who may not have Google to use).

Hi Rich

What kind of TV? Analogue (is there any left?) or DTV? Country/countries? Frequencies?

Hi,

 

The link is in the registration, spider.ham-radio.ch points to my IP here in Cornwall for the DX Cluster. You’ll not see the link on the website.

 

If there’s no take-up I’ll let you know.

Hi Simon,

If no candidate I'm OK to take the domain but I see no link pointing to your DX Cluster the only valid output link is to USKA.

Hi Simon,

i tested the cluster thingy ... i connected to ve7cc.net and send a spot (te5st testing on 10489.709.120) ... disconnected and then connected to spider.sdr-radio.com

and was lucky to be fast enough (see screenshot).

So it seems to work fine :-)
