Re: recommended OS version?

Simon Brown
 

Paul,

 

None, that’s it. It’s W7 or higher, I recommend W10 or W11.

Subject: [SDR-Radio] recommended OS version?

 

hello,
My question:  What is the recommended version of SDR-Radio to run from within win XP?

Background:
>  I do have working copies of XP-32 and XP-64.  I do not own W7, W10 or other Win.
>  I am by far more a linux guy but do want to try out this feature full application.  No luck so far with WINE.   Therefore I have created a VM within my Debian OS and successfully installed XP-64.  I have tried to install both [SDR-Radio V3.1, 64-bit, 2022-04-12_1245.exe] and [SDR-Radio V3.1, 32-bit, 2022-04-12_1245.exe], but neither fully worked.  Next I went way back in time and tried [SDR-RADIO-Pro_v2.2b1735.exe].  This last seemed to get me closer but not fully working.

> I know Simon is truly tops with his projects and I'm guessing there is a path for me. I don't mind all the tuning needed here, but so as to not waste time on dead-ends, I felt it was best to check in and get pointed towards the proper method.

so in summary... should I be working with the 32 or 64 bit XP and try to get it to play SDR-Radio from within a VM?  If so, which version of the branch code is suggested.  And any other ideas are very welcome.  (Baring a purchase of windows, ;).

thanks!

Re: Pointing eggsactly in File anlyzer

For any arbitrary carrier frequency there is no way to do what you want. You can approximate by zooming way in and clicking. It's a screen pixel thing.

For situations where you see real channel spacing, e.g. 3 kHz for regions using SSB and 5 kHz for regions using HF AM you can use tools options to have the carrier snap to the nearest 1 kHz or other step size.

You can also place the mouse over a number on the frequency display, hold the shift key, and roll the mouse wheel. Digits to the right will be zeroed.

Does any one know how to get  exact pointing or tuning into  a carrier in the data  analyzer? Many times the pointer the steps even equal dotn seem to point exactly in the carrier ie 17490000.000 or 17530.000

In the second example as in the mini shot it steps to 17259976.8 and requires too careful mouse pointing to step up into 17530034[.662] so losing the carrier

Attached are the photos adjustment buttons in total zoom plus the whole screenshot Step can vary by 12,13+ Hz ±v and never get on 17490 in this case V of Tibet

the step down mouse pointing





this this step-down pointing with next step on 530034.xxx losing the exact carrier





I think that a zoom operation can help pointing  to carrier

And with bigger coupling caps and decoupling coils the 103 can be used down to long wave :-)

I don’t need to measure it, as it is specified in the manual by Elad. See page 23.

 

The Noise floor at 500Hz BW at 91.1MHz is -138dBm with the Preamp on and NR off.

 

Convert to dBm/Hz

 

  • -138dBm @ 500Hz = -165dBm/Hz
  • Perfect RX (0dBNF) = -174dBm/Hz
  • NF =174-165 = 9dB

 

So Elad say 9dB, I believe them, not so amazing and typical. When the band is open then 9dB is adequate, but the weak stuff needs a little better.

Absolutely, the S3 has a noise figure of 9dB with the preamp on, This is really not good enough, I have determined that I would like 4dB or so here in my quiet location.  So, to achieve this I will use an external LNA. So not 101% but 100% 😉

 

Dynamic range is still good enough with S3 preamp off.

Hi,

 

I do have one I don't use but the S3 really shouldn't need a pre-amp, are you 101% sure you need this?

I want an LNA for Band II to go with my FDM-S3. I have a good BPF. The LNA4ALL is just a PGA103+ that has a bias T facility so it will do nicely. Has anyone got a spare one for sale or something similar?

Thanks guys... FINALLY got it to change!! Now to figure out why when using VAC to send audio to JTDX that all the FT8 signals are moved up 1500 cycles on the JTDX waterfall display... Must be another setting I missed as the same SDR rx and SDRC and VAC on another computer with V3.0.26 works fine.
