Re: RA0SMS Miniwhip bad performance on SDRPlay

Went back to my original setup for reference ,8mhz and 14mhz dipole (V for 14mhz and inverted V for 8mhz)with 1:1 balun and a MFJ-945D mobile tuner. And this of course allows me to cover all HF freqs very well and not surprisingly better than this mini-whip. Will experiment a little more with my set...

Re: RA0SMS Miniwhip bad performance on SDRPlay

Bought a RA0SMS mini-whip and managed to get it working with my SDRplay v1. At 12v DC its poor and a mass of noise, Though at 4.5v DC it came alive with good to pretty good reception and low NF from around 5mhz to 27mhz. Gain setting was 40 no-LNA for SDRplay with HDSDR. Definitely needed ground lea...

Re: SDRuno C_Band Jaero reception.

I think your accessing L Band (1.5ghz) signals not C Band (3.6ghz). The Norsat 3220 LNB is a for C-Band reception 3.4ghz to 4.2ghz which down coverts the the 3.616mhz signals to the SDRplay. So it can receive/decode them on the 1500mhz band. For interest sake i`ve attached a pic of my modded satelli...

SDRuno C_Band Jaero reception.

SDRuno is working quite well with Jaero C-Band reception. The antenna is 2x 2.4ghz half dish type antennas fixed together and with added flywire mesh glued to the surface. Using a Norsat 3220 LNB and a 900mhz High pass filter for input to the SDRplay. A wider bandwidth for Upper Side Band (SSB) for ...

SDR-Radio/Software/performance

Had my SDRPlay a week and quite impressed so far. Was having problems with SDR-Console changing Freq-Bands. Downloaded the latest version this morning "SDR-RADIO-Pro_v2.3b2274" and it seems to be a vast improvement. Can change bands easily now...e.g 9.7mhz NewZealand radio to UHF without h...
