All is Well at the KA1GJU Super Stations... I hope!

I was away, while daughter was taking care of the funny farm. On day one we had a 6 hr power outage that knocked them offline. Then later in the week we had bad storms and the Astron 35 that powers the router/switch (reduce QRM from SPS), and two Remoteham Icoms went onto crowbar mode(?). Power was on but no Vdc output. So all servers and remote radios downstream of the router were kaput.

Should all be back up and running, if not please drop me a line! I just hate not being here during thunderstorms for the safety and longevity of the equipment.

Re: SDR Console with W11

Chris van Lint
 

You learn something every day.  I did not realise that there is no need to uninstall the DAB driver before using Zadig to install the correct one. I am afraid that your instructions to use VID and PID and  the reference to WCID Driver are beyond my pay grade and do not quite know how to go about that. I agree with the comments on the E4000 front end, also echoed by other contributors.  I have found that for working around 1.6GHz they appear to perform better. In my somewhat simplistic analysis of how these things work, I thought that the communication between the PC and the dongle is handled by the RTL2838UHIDIR chip and that the R820T/E4000 is the actual tuner or front end. Again this leads me to assume that this observation is confirmed by the fact that neither the E4000 nor the RTL820T dongle work.  Other SDRs such as the Airspy HF+ and the SDRPlay work fine on this W11 PC.

Your problem makes me think of one thing immediately. You exported SDRC settings from one machine, imported them from the other, and used whatever goofy instructions you found for running Zadig. Yes, Windows can install DAB stuff on the dongle. Do not interrupt it. Let it finish. THEN run Zadig, find the device by VID and PID. These may be different for older E400 dongles than for more modern R830T dongles. So you may have to run it twice for each dongle. I'm annoyed so you get to figure out the appropriate vid/pid pairs. Be careful. The 0bda vendor makes other stuff likely in your computer. Find a candidate and google the numbers. When you have a device candidate tell Zadig to "Install WCID Driver". Leave WinUSB selected. When running Zadig you do not have to log in as Adininistrator. You do have to use an account marked as one of the administrators and use the "Run as administrator" right click option.

If Zadig has not been run properly and you did the export then import with SDRC it may be able to see a device but not use it.

The only other thing I can think of is the possibility that Windows security features may mean you have to go into settings and allow SDRC to run the dongles. That may require a big long slog through settings. I'd start with devices or security. 11 has settings to make access to sound and video devices at a very granular level. This may exist for a "DAB" dongle even if it is now marked as a device using WinUSB.sys.

I've not been following this discussion because - well - rtlsdr. I am developing an allergy to the god damn things helped along by Google screwing up the external access to my Google Drive folder containing some rtlsdr aids - and users not being able to read past where they found the link on rtlsdr.whatever. I posted the correction. But the people cannot edit the original post to put in the correct address.

One of the problems with written comments is that subtle nuances can easily be misinterpreted without having the opportunity to clarify.  From your response it would appear that I have offended you. It was not my intention to be sarcastic.  I simply wanted to highlight the fact that I am aware that my knowledge of SDR software is very limited, but that I have managed to get some reasonable results using SDR-C in the past.  If I have offended you, I do apologise and for the record I do not think that you are a stupid dolt. Quite to the contrary; I have read some of your comments on this list and it is obvious that you know your stuff. I have to confess that a lot of it is sort of outside my comfort zone in terms of understanding..  As to figuring it out myself, I have decided not to pursue this issue any further.  Everything works fine on my Laptop W10 and to other HP PCs running W10, which are currently packed away.

Cheers,

Chris

To overcome this problem the serial number is now only used if there are more than one SDRplay devices of the same hardware type. So, if you only have one RSP1 / RSP2 / RSPdx etc. then it will be opened irrespective of serial number.

Re: No RSP useable in SDR Console #sdrplay

Mike Bott
 

Simon,

With my Win8.1 set-up, I had to use the 3.09API with both SDRuno and SDR Console to get either to work. With the release and installation of of SDRuno 1.42.0728, the 3.10API (non-beta) worked with both SDRuno and SDR Console.  Since I basically replaced my SDRplay RSP2 with the RSPdx at the same time, I also removed V2 from the system..

I find Windows to be very good with USB. Seems that a recent SDR Uno release maybe shipped with 3.10 Beta 6 which caused problems with V3 and I saw on Facebook maybe V2 as well. If I read the Facebook comments correctly SDR Uno may have reverted to 3.09.

So, something somewhere was wrong, one user sent me logfiles confirming irregularities.

Due to the SDRplay Facebook settings I can't generate a sharable link, here's some text I've copied.

Group expert
SDRuno 1.42-0728 has been released. Bug fix for the scanner with the RSPduo and improved API installer. Note: the API 3.09 installer has also been updated to assist those going back from API 3.10 - https://www.sdrplay.com/sdruno
Note: anyone wanting to revert back to SDRuno 1.41.1 or API 3.09, MUST first download and run the latest 1.42 installer (0728) and then download and run the latest 1.41.1 installer (dated 28th July 2022). Please don't try running older versions of the installer that you may still have on your PC. It is possible to use 1.42-0728 with API 3.09, but to do this, you need to first install 1.42-0728, which will install API 3.10 and then download and run the latest (28th July 2022) installer for API 3.09.
Anyone wanting to use ExtIO plugins will need to go back to API 3.09 by using the above steps.

3. Delete SDR Play definitions in Console
4. Reboot computer
5. Re-install the SDR Play software.

I use the Contour Shuttle with Win4Yaesu and Tom has built in some very simple functionality which makes it work very well - perhaps something similar could be built into SDRC?

Tom catches four different key strokes at the application frame level : F9 and F10 which are interpreted as "tune down one frequency step" and "tune up one frequency step" and the plus and minus keys that are interpreted as increase and reduce the frequency step size. We program the wheel to send a stream of F9s and F10s depending on the direction it is turned and program the two large buttons on either side of the shuttle to send plus and minus keystrokes. The up and down arrow keys retain their current meanings, tied to whichever pane has focus...

jdow, you probably entered this conversation somewhere down the line.  In earlier emails I did indicate that I HAD to run Zadig, because W11 decided it had just the right driver, which of course was the wrong one.  I uninstalled the faulty driver using Device Manager and used Zadig to install the correct one.

No I did not copy/transfer any settings for the Laptop

Dotting an i here - did you run Zadig on this system?

Did you copy settings etc from the Windows 10 system?

OK, I am a stupid dolt. You can figure it out yourself.

Just for the record;
I am not by any means very savvy when it comes to computers and software, especially the intricacies of SDR.  On the other hand I do have a bit of experience and I am a dedicated fan of SDR-Console.  If you do have some spare time, which I doubt you could have a look at this attachment.

Re: usb relay, which one to order?

Siegfried Jackstien
 

As far as i know usb relays only be used to switch ptt but not between antennas..
A band data out via usb could solve that.. Say you want to switch to the beam on 10 to 20m and to the dipole on 40 and 80m..
If your two antennas are one for transmit and (maybe a beverage) one for receive.. Ok then you could use a usb relay.
Hth?

Hi guys,

I would like to switch between antennas with the SDR Console program.
For that I would need to have a USB relay board.

What type of cards would work nowadays with SDR Console?
