Re: Using a Wellbrook ALA1530LN on an RSP2

Thank you for the guidance Andy.
Just a question though - I had always believed that the MW/FM filters on the RSP2 only apply to Ports A & B.
However (an uneducated) look at this BSD seems to indicate that they are automatically applied to the HI-Z port.
I assume that I'm probably wrong...

Using a Wellbrook ALA1530LN on an RSP2

Currently, Port A is attached to an active mini-whip antenna that I believe provides really quite good reception from VLF through MF (at all times) and >7 Mhz (most times - haven't done much above 15Mhz at HF). Port B is populated by three-way external switching to an H/V/UHF discone, an alternative...

Re: RSP Spectrum analyser software available shortly

Congratulations - looks fantastic!
Just an "inocent" query:
Could it be possible to reduce the sweep still further, down to say 250hz or even lower, perhaps permitting even finer resolution, down to single hz values?
Or is this a really ridiculous ask?

Re: hiz antenna

This may or may not be helpful Barry: Once the connections are screwed in, why would you want to unscrew them? If you are thinking of using alternative antennae on the Hi-Z Port, it is possible to obtain additional (little green plugs) to which other antennae could be connected and the plugs (they a...

Earthing/grounding of coax outer braid

I know that I'm a dummt, but would be grateful for advice on how best to physically connect coax outer braid to an earth-rod. Is it acceptable to turn back some of the outer braid when fitting say a PL259 to an SO239 and clamp the earth strap or wire to/around it, covering the lot with self-amalgama...

Hi Richard If you have adjusted the Gain/Gain Reduction to your satisfaction on the Main Panel (default is Gain reuction. but selectable to Gain under the Main Panel "Sett" menu) and this is generally producing an acceptable signal level, please be aware that when an aircraft is in close p...

Re: Upgrade from 1.2 to 1.22

Is any guidance available on the memory panel grid resize options? - there doesn't appear to be any in the 1.22 manual as far as I can see and having tried dragging the column delimiters around, I wondered whether another method was intended.

Re: SDRplay Win10 cannot load driver

Hi Rob A bit "off-the wall," but in addition to my treasured RSP2. I also operate a reasonably good-quality (honest) RTL receiver to provide me with a v/uhf scanning facility and I have loaded the zadig driver to run the SDR# (and frequency manager/scanner) programmes. This will have to se...
