Re: Continuum mode

Charles Suckling
 

Hi Simon

I have been able to use Spectravue in the past in conjunction with SDR-Console by outputting IQ via the CW skimmer option and feeding that via VAC to Spectravue.

Apart from the complication and overhead of having two applications running, the limitation here for me was that the maximum noise bandwidth that seemed to work OK was 48kHz.

This limitation leads to a certain level of fluctuations in the displayed level meaning that measuring small changes in noise is impossible with any accuracy (fluctuation amplitude I think reduces with the square root of the sampled bandwidth.

What would be ideal is for a continuum display to use as much bandwidth as possible to reduce the residual fluctuations to a minimum.

Apache labs are not a scam..well known good company..one ought to be careful in saying such things..re law suits etc..plus getting this forum in trouble..

And besides who would set up a scam for maybe 100 people or so…not worth the effort..

Maybe seller communication could be improved..message/ ring them??

My bad! Yes Synchronous AM or SAM.
Still the screen shot is a bit horked up, since the user has independent sideband adjustment turned on, but only one side is visible.
So the user had taken one sideband and moved it all the way to the dashed green line.
With SAM on, there still should be vertical dashed line in center of audio passband.

Re: Continuum mode

Nick Hall-Patch
 

Thanks for the quick reply, Simon.

I hate to use other folks' software as a reference when talking to a developer, but what SpectraVue does for Continuum mode is just fine for my purposes.  However, SpectraVue talks only to RFSpace SDRs, and however good those radios might be, they are mostly historical.

SDR Console, however, talks to many SDRs, so more useful now and in the future for more users.

I hope that the enclosed give you a better idea of what SpectraVue' Continuum looks like.   Although  my example SpectraVueContinuumDisplay.png shows a 1300kHz span, it can be reduced to any span available within the original sampling.  (SpectraVue2DPlotDisplay.png is the equivalent 2D plot).   It can be used either with a recorded file, as in this example, or during live listening, which is my present need.  Continuum mode in SpectraVue can also record .csv files.

SVueManualContinuum.png   is  from the SpectraVue manual.   I'm sure that Moe Wheatley would offer advice, although might be forgiven for not immediately knowing all the details after all the elapsed time from his writing SpectraVue.

Thanks for considering this.

Nick

The span can be set from one Hz to the full span being monitored.  It's derived from the FFT displayed.Does any SDR software other than SpectraVue offer this capability?Thanks.Nick

Hi.
Here are some I have taken.

This one is from 1296 MHz me moving the dish from +40 deg elevation down to -10 deg back up to +10 deg and there moving in Az from 120 deg to 225 deg and then down to 0 deg elevation at the end.

1296 MHz ground noise

This one is a drift test letting the Moon pass through the beam of my dish at 5760 MHz showing the thermal noise of the Moon.
SM6FHZ Moon noise 2016-04-09

These are just two examples of how you can use the Continuum mode. There are many more fun things you can measure using this mode displaying the noise in the full sampled BW.

Looking forward to see it implemented in SDR Console :-) Makes me happy.

If you need more info / input / discussion please let me know.

Bob,

 

I want you to run DebugView https://www.sdr-radio.com/diagnostics#DebugView :

 

  • Download, install, start.
  • Start Console, connect to the R8600.
  • Change frequency a few times with Console.
  • In DebugView, File menu save the output to a file and send to me direct: simon@...
  • The file will have a lot of interesting diagnostic information.

Hi,

Yes, I tried a different cable and Port.  And a higher bandwidth.

Am using the Icom Driver; wondering if I should try yours instead ?

Will be most interested to see how you make out with your radio, and with the Icom Driver.
Won't do anything more until then.

My guess is that, as usual, I'm missing something very simple.
But, Console does communicate, and work with the radio, but has the "anomalies" I've mentioned.

Will recopy what I wrote previously, as there might be some good info in it.

Radio USB cable goes from radio IQ  Port to pc.  No Hub in use.

I have installed, per your writeup, the ICOM download “USB I/Q Package for HDSDR”.

Hopefully correctly ?  Not sure.  It was the X64 version.

It installed, apparently, into HDSDR.

*Should it (also) be installed into a SDRConsole Folder ?  The Installer wouldn’t allow any options.

        *Located it in Device Mgr. /Universal Serial Bus Devices. 

        Shows there as: IC-R8600 I/Q Out Port (WinUSB)

       **Is this correct ?  Any other places it should be, or anything else related to this

         Driver that I should do ?

 Tried using HDSDR with the R8600 as an experiment.

 The LO numbers when tuned in HDSDR, change the R8600 frequency perfectly.

The Tune numbers do not effect the numbers showing in the R8600.

 The mode buttons in HDSDR do not change the mode in the R8600

          The R8600 seems to stay locked on USB, as with Console.

 Back to Console:

 Looking at the Console Definitions, I see for the R8600 in “Select Radio/Options” :

               \\?\usb#vid_0c268&pid_ …….   (note the “usb”)  Is this correct ?
                                                                  Would this "lock" the Mode Select buttons ?

 I select the 8600 in Console, and say START;

 Console does seem to communicate with the R8600.

 Changing the tune numbers in Console changes the numbers in

the small panel that appears in the waterfall for Freq. and Span.

Freq: reflects exactly what is shown in the R8600 panel


But changing numbers in Console, sometimes, but not all the time,

doesn’t always change exactly what the radio shows. 

Usually, only the highest one or two digits change.

Again, what the radio shows always mimics the small panel in the waterfall for Freq.

 
Probably important, and likely a good hint to what is happening:

    *Dragging the small vertical yellow line on the waterfall bottom scale is reflected

     exactly on the radio and also on the small Freq/Scan panel in the Waterfall.

 Mode selection buttons (still) can’t get to work.

 

I keep wondering if there is some configuration in the radio itself that I

haven’t configured correctly. Wouldn’t surprise me that the problem may be here, but

no idea what it might be, if so.

Bob,

 

  • Use 3.84 MHz, let me know how that works.
  • The driver is just WinUSB, either it works or it doesn’t. As HDSDR works then the driver is OK.
  • Looks like a bug in Console, will test tomorrow.

I select the 8600 in Console, and say START;

 

Console does seem to communicate with the R8600.

 

Changing the tune numbers in Console changes the numbers in

the small panel that appears in the waterfall for Freq. and Span.

Freq: reflects exactly what is shown in the R8600 panel

 

But changing numbers in Console, sometimes, but not all the time,

doesn’t always change exactly what the radio shows. 

Usually, only the highest one or two digits change.

 

Again, what the radio shows always mimics the small panel in the waterfall for Freq.

 
Probably important, and likely a good hint to what is happening:

    *Dragging the small vertical yellow line on the waterfall bottom scale is reflected

     exactly on the radio and also on the small Freq/Scan panel in the Waterfall.

 

 Mode selection buttons (still) can’t get to work.

 

I keep wondering if there is some configuration in the radio itself that I

haven’t configured correctly. Wouldn’t surprise me that the problem may be here, but

no idea what it might be, if so.

 

Best regards, and thanks so much for thoughts and help,

Bob
