Re: Fw: [SDR-Radio] No RSP useable in SDR Console #sdrplay

Sven,

I'm sorry - I have no idea what has happened with the new APIs. It works for some people with API 3.09 - maybe others with RSP radios can comment here.

One thing - SDR Console is a 64-bit program, I think the others are 32-bit.

Looks like QRM from something nearby. Could be via the Coax, Antenna, or via (through) the plastic enclosure. Is the RXR

I have seen a bad ground connection in a USB cable ( open from one end to the other on the shield ) give terrible QRM. Have you tried a different USB cable?


I also had to wrap my RSP1A in copper foil to reduce external QRM sources. Not sure it the mfg applied any screening to the DX model.
From the image, it appears to about 350 KHz apart, which is little wider than the normal switching power supply QRM.

So can you catch a screen shot with a menu showing? For that the main screen shot is about your only trick.

Do you have your ribbon bar configured to hide itself? You can change that. You don't have to, though. You can use the print screen button on your keyboard will show the menus dropped down from the ribbon bar if it is showing when you reach over to the button on your keyboard.

Re: Fw: [SDR-Radio] No RSP useable in SDR Console #sdrplay

Dennis Matzen
 

Sven, did you take the steps I recommended to remove all SDR Play software and re-install it? I had a similar issue last year and this cleaned up things on my PC.


1. Disconnect all SDR play receivers from PC.
2. Un-install ALL SDR Play software, applications, drivers, API, etc.
3. Delete SDR Play definitions in Console
4. Reboot the computer
5. Re-install the SDR Play software.
     a. Make sure you do not plug in the receiver until directed to do so by the SDR Play software installation.
6. Check operation in SDR Uno
7. Add a new definition in Console and test

Re: Afedri AFE822X dual channel Diversity/phasing support?

Conrad, PA5Y
 

Yes this is a useful feature, the brain does a very good job of ‘decoding’ in such circumstances providing that both channels have a similar noise floor. Also it is quite surprising when you hear a sporadic E or MS signal pan across the headphones. Perhap not very useful but great fun to hear. I have heard this on occasion when using Linrad and my 2m Xpol setup in the past.
