Re: Grounding SDRPlay RSP2

bobarr@...
 

Lots of good info given.
Do you have an outdoor rain gutter nearby. They make a good end fed with a balun. Good luck.

Or a very fine copper wire strung between two buildings. Invisible worked great for me until a lucky TD football pass hit it.

I found the "reset" and deleted the reg... reload the program and now V.3 working FB... Time to explore that others have posted on this site and learn more about this program.

I appeared to have done something wrong..or stupid.  The DSP ICON is gone so bringing up the screen to change freq and other items will not come up.  Last night on my Tablet I no issue, however with the Dell computer I somehow did something wrong.

Now I have used CClean to remove Ver 3. When I reinstall it the programs jumps back to the last screen I had... Good trick considered I deleted it... So what am I missing. Were is the hidden file that keeps track of that last setup so I can remove it and do a clean re-install.

Other then this one, minor/major hangup I do like the program so far.

Thank you for any help you can provide

Re: Grounding SDRPlay RSP2

Graeme Zimmer <gzimmer@...>
 

Jeff,

Any other Ideas that could work better?
Having your SDR and PC grounded is not as important as having a balanced antenna on the input, which is DC isolated from the SDR by a balun.

You need to keep the noise from the PC away from the antenna. The idea of the balun is to stop the hash travelling up the coax braid to the antenna.

The hard thing is setting up a balanced antenna indoors. If you can't put up an outside dipole or end-fed wire, then next best is an indoor loop antenna. A well made loop (eg balanced and/or shielded) will ignore the electric component (eg noise) and only respond the horizontal component (eg signal).

And of course most loop antennas include an isolated coupling loop to break any DC path..

Earthing the PC and SDR will also help, but only if you have a quiet earth connection and an isolating balun. If not, it can actually make things worse.

My most successful antenna is a long outside wire which is coupled to my SDR via a nine-to-one isolating balun.

Grounding SDRPlay RSP2

Jeff Miller
 

 
Hi all 

Just got my new RSP2 and want to ground it. I live in condo so outdoor is not allowed. I have a wire strung around the room via the P jack and tried jumper from N-G which helped minimally. Now I have wire run from G to a metal shelving unit and seems better (Finally able to get WWV on 15Mhz).

Any other Ideas that could work better?

Have a scanner ant hooked to A working fine

NetSDR Settings - LNA, Mixer, VGA

Scott/KC1UA
 

Hello,


I'm running the Version 3 Feb 21 2017 Preview, 64 bit with my RFSpace NetSDR. LNA, Mixer, and VGA settings do not appear to be functioning. RF Gain does. 


Is this "normal" or am I missing something? I know it's a preview so I'm guessing it's the former and not the latter. Don't see the need for a screenshot in this case; other than this the software seems to be working beautifully with this SDR. 


Thanks,

Scott

Hi Karl,

What happens when you try to start the Funcube?
What we really need is a screenshot (use the camera icon top left to take this, and attach to a reply) and take it just after you tried to start the dongle.
Also make sure you have selected "Funcube.." as the soundcard in the starting dialogue - a few people forget to do that.

Hope this helps.

I get this also sometimes, especially when I am trying to use Skimmer.

 

Try reboot and launch SDR Console first before any other apps

Hi,
Where does SDR V3 expect to find omnirig. I am getting a message on start up that omnirig is not available and directing me to the omni rig site. I use omni rig successfully with WIN4K3 and LOG40M and have no problems with these programs locating it.
Thank you for any suggestions.

Many thanks to "Colin VK5HI" for the advice.  Very happy to report that it worked !  I am again a happy camper/user of V3.  This program is so far superior to anything out there......esp. SDRplay's SDR Uno !

Thanks again Colin,

Airspy & Spyverter & SDR-Radio.com on HF - Test

Nils Schiffhauer
 

Hi - recentliy I tested the combo of Airspy and SpyVerter with "our" software on HF in some detail.

I was very much surprised by the performance of this 10-bit SDR with up to 10 MHz width.

My hands-on test covers broadcast (including DRM), as well as utility radio. It also makes use of Simon's unique 24 demodulators (broadcast), plus with 24 decoders (HFDL).

The 19-paged PDF with 25 instructive screenshots can be downloaded at:

Re: How to use two Funcube FCDP+ with V3 ?

gautea@...
 

Hi Bob, I think you have to "double up"  things.
Define 2 Consoles, eg. Identity 5 and 6.
Each having their separate FCDP+ and VAC cables, eg. 1 and 2.
Start CW Skimmer 2 times, giving each their separate VAC cables, 1 and 2.
This is just my guessing as I do not have CW Skimmer.
I also do remember there is some CAT involved :-)
Good luck and have fun.

How to use two Funcube FCDP+ with V3 ?

g6mjzp343htj5jwwfwwluptaqmdr7x5rgjoi4g6s@...
 

I have been trying to use two Funcube Dongles so CWSkimmer could read two bands. I tried V3 , which works quite well reading EITHER FCDP+ ..

However, I want to read two bands at a time in the CW portions since I have two FCD's.

I can't seem to get V3 to control two FCD at the same time. She'll read and change one but not be able to "Start" the other Rx of the other Dongle. If I STOP the other then I can STGART the second Funcube Dongle

Win7/64 , fwiw.


Where am I missing this?
