Fixed Spectrum Width in waterfall


Conrad, PA5Y
 

Hello Gentlemen and happy new year.

 

I use SDR console with a transverter and Perseus as a band scope with point and click tuning. I did search the archives for what has previously  been referred to as ‘Fixed Spectrum Mode’ which I think is what I want.

 

Maybe it would be best if I explain the scenario.

 

I want the Waterfall to always display between 144.080 and 144.400 and for this to be fixed. This would be optimal use with the DXSpots markers during a contest. When I click I do not want the waterfall display to move just the receive frequency. I am sure that this must be possible but I cannot find it. I am sorry for being so dumb!

 

Say I click on 144.185 I do not require this to be centred in the main waterfall, it should stay static at a fixed bandwidth. I hope that my explanation is clear.

 

I thought that I may be able to do this by setting the width of the horizontal slider at the bottom of the screen but I cannot fix it to specific lower and upper limits. I want to view around 450kHz and I am sampling with adequate BW on the Perseus. It seems to have been requested but I do not know if it has been implemented yet. If it has I missed it and cannot find out how to achieve it.

 

Regards

Thanks for the speedy reply Simon I will give it a try this evening. What is the most expedient way of setting the band edges? Using the slider at bottom? I know that the edges can be pulled and the centre frequency set in a similar way. Is that best?

Hi Conrad.
HNY!
I hope all is fine at your end.
You can use the "Multi Band" mode as well. It brings many nice possibilities.

Conrad, PA5Y
 

Ingolf sorry for the tardy reply! HNY to you as well. I will have a look at Multi-Band mode.

 

Best Regards

I had a look and multiband mode does not appear as a choice in the View part of the receive ribbon.  I had a look here https://www.sdr-radio.com/multi-band but this assumes that the multiband view is available. I am using SDR Console 3.1 with a Perseus. How can I activate this feature? It does look very interesting.
