The 7300 has both audio and IQ. It is switchable in the menu for the USB output for either..............Larry

You have a point. I don't believe the IC-7300 has in IQ output. The IC-7610 has an IQ output.

All I can find on the web suggests the 7300 is unfit to use as an SDR front end.

I do not understand whats going on either Max.

OK Larry, now I see the problem. What causes the mirror images I'm sorry I have no idea as never used SDRC in this mode.


I don't know why the mirror images, they are also in SDR# but I can select and zoom on either one in that software.



However, with Auto-center ticked, why can you not click on the signal that you wish to tune (left or right image) THEN zoom. Auto-center should always centre the selected/tuned frequency to the centre of the screen, at least that's what I always see here. Maybe something specific about this mode you are seeing that does not obey that behaviour, though I don't see why not?

That does not work unfortunately.


In your second shot you do not have Auto-center engaged, so you would therefore need to first manually move the signal to centre of screen by dragging the translucent "spectrum window" bar at the very bottom of the screen, THEN zoom.

That does not work either!I don't know why there are traces at anything other than 12kHz either. Thanks for the help gentlemen!!!!..........Larry

question is is it 12 kc low if (audio) in mono ot is it 12 kc iq (stereo)???

see the mirror i guess that sdr console wants to see iq while the rig sends low if

dg9bfc sigi

ps in hdsdr i can use both ... low if (mono) or iq (stereo) as input ... does sdrc also suport both modes ??

So in your first shot, your selected/tuned frequency is 22 kHz, but should it not be either around 10kHz or 34 kHz, then Zoom with Auto-center engaged?

If neither of these work then sorry I must have missed something and maybe someone else understands the issue more than I do.

Hi,

 

Am a bit busy for the next few days, replacing the XML library in Console (MSXML6) with pugixml, will sort out this rotator issue when I’ve finished.

That is a feature that I regard a misfeature of SDRConsole. Simon likes it. He is in the driver's seat. So I try not to bitch about it very much. There are possible issues with the multiple receiver operation that require some "guess work."

Hello Simon,

Looks like the Virtual Serial ports created by VSPE are not recognized in the rotator configuration panel.

Re: xtal 12khz and ic-7300 iq via usb

Max
 

I don't use external radios, but as nobody else has answered.......

Firstly, when posting on here it's always best to start with a full screenshot as generated with the built-in Screenshot tool:

https://www.sdr-radio.com/screenshot

SDRC is not designed to always have the tuning "anchored" to the centre position. However, it can be forced back to centre when needed by enabling "Auto center" option on the View tab:




When you have this enabled, if you just slightly touch the "Zoom" slider, the main tuning cursor will jump back to centre.

Just under the "Auto center" tick box you will also see "Mouse-over buttons". If you untick this option (I always do) the Zoom slider is always present at the right of the screen, making a quick tap of the Zoom control very quick and easy.

Hope it helps.

Hello, I am trying to use Console with an IC-7300 12khz IQ output via usb. It is sort of working, I just can't figure out how to get the spectrum to center properly in the display. What am I not doing?

The KrakenSDR is an interesting project to locate transmitter sites.
Unfortunately, it doesn't cover the most popular ham bands:

"24 MHz to 1766 MHz tuning Range (standard R820T2 RTL-SDR range"

Re: SDR Console 3 Spectrum background colour

Simon Brown
 

OK,

 

Been thinking about this. Quite a lot of code needs updating to support alternate backgrounds, for example S-Meter, default Marker colours, RX markers, Peak values, possibly more.

 

  • I will add support if there’s someone who cannot use a black / very dark grey background.
  • The current scheme is high contrast, this can’t be improved.
  • When printing in a magazine the values in the spectrum scale aren’t really too important, when they are then data is usually exported to a 3rd party program for analysis. Irrespective of colour, the scale font size is so small that it’ll be difficult to read in print format.

Hello again Simon

I would be SO happy to see a simple choice of three options for "background" on the spectrum window:

1)  Present option  -  dark grey
2)  Pure white background or very light grey  with the dB values grid in a darker grey
3) Very light blue background

Obviously some choices of background and spectrum color would clash.
I note some of the colors are very flashy - cool to look at but not so suitable for publication.
I'm looking for something simple with high contast.

Am I remembering correclty that Console V2  did have options for background color on the spectrum?
Maybe I am thinking of a different ap I've used in the past.
But I did submit a few articles to QST over the past ten years which had a better contrast than what I can now get with Console 3   (And SDRuno which is even worse).

with appreciation for all that you do to make these apps look so good and work so well,
