Re: Pluto:: Spurious Emissions

Jacques RAMBAUD
 

Hello Simon and all,

Using now the SDR Console v3.1 build 2496 and still have the same RF spurious as before out of my Pluto , see attached picture.

Is it normal ?

Re: Problem with Adalm-Pluto SDR's USB #adalmpluto

Wrong guess. Ground mod has been done long time ago. Made it better, but did not solve it completely. Crossing my fingers that it is now 100% stable. At first it would crash randomly. After the ground mod only when the lights in my basement (with motion detector) went on. Now with the DC-DC convertor, it stays working event if the basement lights go on.

let me do a guess ...its a revision b and you did not do the ground mod yet ... (just a short bridge inside)

yes THEN it is sensitive ;-)

Update on my setup: I now use a low noise DC-DC convertor by SV1AFN to power the pluto. I need 12V for other parts of the setup, so by using this convertor I only need 1 supply voltage. Pluto is stable now. It seems to be very touchy for any fluctuations on its 5V supply.

Re: Console Signal meter reading

Allan Isaacs
 

Hi Michel

Yes, I agree.

I just watched the W8BYA video and you can see the SDR Play can be set up to indicate precise signal levels by trial and error and of course within realistic limits.

My receivers are an early SDR Play, an old Lime and a repaired Andrus. The available console settings are completely different for each of these and obviously I need to follow the calibration procedure suggested by Gedas to get correlation between true and indicated RF levels if indeed this is possible.

  

For example the Andrus has only a basic gain setting 0, -12, -24 and -30dBm with no IF gain or video gain settings.

 

As an example.

My Andrus sees a broadcast station on 198KHz, with no antenna connection, at -102dBm with gain 0dB and base noise visually at less than -145dBm but reading -136dBm and b/w +/-6KHz. If I change the gain to minus 30dB I see the base noise rise visually to minus 127dBm with a reading of minus 112dBm or visually minus 122dBm at +/-1KHz b/w. The broadcast station reads minus 108dBm but I can hear no audio. Changing the gain to -24dB provides a reading of minus 103dBm with very noisy audio; minus 12dB gives me the same reading of minus 102dBm with noisy audio. Finally reverting to 0dB gain I see the same minus 102dBm with clear audio.

What is changing with gain setting is the signal to noise ratio.

For weak signals the console setting is easy.. set the gain to 0dB. For strong signals I need to use a gain setting between -12 and -30dB. These tests had AGC off and because the signal level was so weak turning AGC on had no effect.

Hi Allan,
Test setup
RF generator on 15 MHz, output level set to 13 dBm or 1Vrms :
- ~ 6 Vcc measured (2.1 V rms) on my Tek 454 scope in case of direct connexion
- ~ 3 Vcc measured (1.05 V rms) on the scope when the generator is loaded with a 50 ohms resistive load 
The displayed output level of the generator is thus correct if the generator is loaded with its internal impedance, which is the case of the SDR antenna port A.
Do you agree ?

Hi folks,
I performed a simple test with my RSP2 receiver and my Marconi 2022D RF generator:

The Console settings were as follow:
-RF gain = 0 
-AGC On
-Visual gain = 0
-Mode = CW
-Bandwidth = 200 Hz
I noticed a difference of 20 dB between the generator output level and the signal meter reading; this difference is almost constant from1 to 50 MHz, for signal levels between -100 dBm and -50 dBm. The difference is smaller at -40 dBm level (only 10 dB). The Console signal meter reading is above the generator output level.
My question:
Should I use the "Visual gain" setting to compensate for that diffrence?

Re: Console Signal meter reading

Allan Isaacs
 

Hi Michael

There may be a problem here?

It depends on how the output from your signal generator is measured. Some will regulate the input into the generators attenuator to say 0dBm then rely on the attenuator to define the output at its socket.

If you connect a high impedance load to the signal generator its output will equate to the level indicated by the attenuator setting but, if a 50 ohm load is connected directly, this reading at the output socket will not be valid.

My Marconi TF2008 is marked to show this anomaly.

You could test this hypothesis with a high impedance scope?

First, I suggest you turn AGC OFF to get anywhere near an accurate reading.

There's a whole lot of data along the bottom that's missing. Best to use the screen shot button w/in SDRC, not the Print Screen of Windows.

Re: Cant get Console to run

Dennis Matzen
 

Attached is my log file for the RSPduo. Two things I see that may be an issue. I have API ver 3.08, you are using 3.09 and it shows the local version is 3.06. I think Simon has said 3.09 will work but that may be a fix in one of the beta releases. I am running build 2470, you might try updating.

The other thing I see is that your process is an Atom. I know it is supported but not sure if has any affect on what you are seeing. 

So you might try changing the API ver to 3.08 and  upgrade Console to latest beta. Note I find that whenever updating the SDRplay software it is best to unplug receiver, remove old software (Uno and all drivers) then install new software and only plug the receiver in when directed by the installation.

Subject: [SDR-Radio] Cant get Console to run

 

Hi I cant get console to run even though its loading ok. I also use sdruno which seems fine. Console is seeing the sdrplay as a definition but wont run it. Any help greatly appreciated thanks..

First, open SDRC all the way so we can see all the data provided, it's not full screen by looking at the box in upper right.
There's a whole lot of data along the bottom that's missing. Best to use the screen shot button w/in SDRC, not the Print Screen of Windows.
OTW reboot, delete definition of the SDRPlay and rebuild a new definition.

Are you sure the proper drivers installed for the RSPduo?
I see the following, but Simon will chime in when he has time...
