Thanks, Tony.  It looks like it changes the next time I start SDRC with the last value used.  For some reason, I just never gave that a second thought before.

Regards,
George

Not sure thats a "favorite". It is a default value. I don't think there is an easy way to change it.

Greetings,

In the attached picture (a screen capture to show the drop down
RF Gain, there is a favorite shown at 17.  I looked at the favorites screen.  I did not see a way to change the favorite value.  How is this done?

The other thing.  I had SDRC using my RSPdx.  Many values would work for the RF Gain for the 99 watt station.  Interestingly enough in SDRuno, the RF Gain setting is very finickly in finding a setting that would work.  I am impressed how there is a much wider range of 'goog' settings than uno has.  Not sure why uno is acting strange in this regard.

Regards,
George

There is a data file editor in the console install directory.
On mine it is:
"C:\Program Files\SDR-Radio.com (V3)\SDR Datafile Editor.exe"
This will let you reduce the bandwidth.

Choose a narrow bandwidth for recording.


Re: Bye-Bye 4m, Hello Band II

Larry Horlick
 

So it looks like I have 6 GB of GD space left ...The complete data file that I want to send to Simon is 9 GB...it's 3' 44" in time and covers a 5.12 mHz chunk of RF spectrum. Can I reduce the size by either shortening it in time OR reducing the amount of spectrum that it covers?

I mean by either reducing the B/W or by reducing the time period that it covers?

Another option is wetransfer.com... Or
Transfernow.net
Or filemail.com
I often use those for sending bigger files
Most free services are 4 or 5 gb max 
And available for 1 week
Paid service ist about 10 bucks per month with one terrabyte for 30 days
Max filesize.. Some have 250gb (filemail) some have only 20 gb(Transfernow)
I only used/needed the free service of one of the above... Never needed to send gigabytes of data.. But for a wideband sdr user maybe those services is the way to go

I highly recommend that you set up the free Google drive storage that you already have.  I know you have it because you have a Gmail address and it comes for free by default.

just go to drive.google.com and try to upload and share the file.  If you can't figure it out, I can get on the phone with you and talk you through it or I can securely remote in and help you.

k...can I make the SDR-C data file smaller? I think I saw a reference to that somewhere, but I can't find it now...

Anyhow, this is pretty easy and I can walk you through it.

Larry,

This would be a great recording to have. Please​ upload an IQ (data) file, if you cut out a portion make sure it's at least 500kHz wide.

I'm in Eastern Canada and I had quite the session yesterday...Morocco, Algeria, Spain, et al on the lower 5 mHz of the 88-108 band. Many, MANY stations unidentified, so hopefully the RDS tweak will reveal more.

So,

Earlier this year I replaced the Band II (88-108 MHz) Yagi with a 4m (70MHz) Yagi only to discover 99% of the DX on 4m was using FT8, even when there were strong Es. Got very, very bored so the Band II Yagi is back up and I'll be adding a Band II PI Code scanner when I have time, can probably run 8 threads in the background.

Some nice Band II Es to Sweden this morning, am uploading a data recording for anyone who fancies a playback.

Am still on 2m for any Es and/or Tropo.

"In the air" with the Discovery and 24 KHz transducers. Part 2 DX'ing??

Paul Cianciolo
 

In this part I look at the distances that can be obtained, the attenuation involved setting up a 24 KHZ ling using the SDR receiver.
