Re: SDRplay frequency range

Hi,

are there any experiences or news about the high frequency limit? I am still interested, but have´t found anything yet.
I know it is highly experimental and there is no guarantee. :)

Joerg.

Re: Metal case?

Hi, today i did some testing with shielding my SDRplay. Unfortunately i have two GSM/UMTS base stations approx. 200m from my house. One transmits at 926 MHz with three segments of 120 degrees, one beam is directed exactly to me. The second one tramsmits at 1857 MHz with three similar sector antennas...

Re: Request : Out of range warning

Hi, it would be nice to have a tweak for completely disabling out of range warnings. I often get out of range warnings when changing frequencies within the range, eg. from 145.000 Mhz zo 145.500 MHz. Furthermore i read somewhere else that it is possible to tune to frequencies above 2 GHz with certai...

Re: SDRPlay CAT interface

Hey, V3 looks really nice. :)

I hope there will be a frequency-manager with frequency-groups and in-waterfall-display availabe. The frequency manager is the only feature that keeps me stuck to SDRsharp at the moment.

Re: Not at all impressed with sdrplay

Hi. I have the same issue with misstuned antennas and strong out band signals. Example: I use my 2m/70cm/23cm triplexer as a preselector for VHF/UHF and have strong 900MHz and 1800MHz (GSM) and 2100 MHz (UMTS/3G) signals only 250m away from my antenna in direct sight and a strong FM and DAB tower ap...

Re: SDRplay frequency range

I know that it is not guaranteed to work above, but i'd like to find out the physical limit of my particular device. It seems, my software is not able to set any frequency higher than 2 GHz. When moving the vfo, the waterfall keeps staying right the same. In the "Low limit Warning Out of Range&...

SDRplay frequency range

After i found out, that SDRplay is working excellent down to 0 Hz (i successfully captured Russian RSDN 20 Alpha Navigation signals on 11 kHz and can see even 50 Hz power-line and 16.666 Hz train-power in my spectrum) i would like to know about the highest usable frequency. In a German community i r...

Re: sdrplay and sdrsharp

Hi.
Unfortunately using the plugins is only possible for users of the Airspy frontend. All the plugins marked with a little star do not work with non-airspy frontends.
Try a different software or a SDRsharp software older than 1404.
Jörg.

Re: sdrplay and sdrsharp

Hi Leon, at the moment using SDRsharp ist not easy. I am using SDRsharp version 1423 with the actual installer from this site. 1. Download SDRsharp from airspy.com and extract it to a folder. 2. Download SDRplay_SDRSharp_Plugin_v2.2 from sdrplay.com/windows 3. Start SDRplay_SDRSharp_Plugin_v2.2 and ...

Re: SDRplay at VLF Freqs

Hi,
i got best results with 0.2 MSPS sampling rate and manually adjusted gain. As soon as the preamplifier is switched on, you have some ghost signals. Tune to a known good signal and play with all the parameters. I usually use the russian Alpha RSDN20 signals for testing.
