Re: AM Radio Crud - How to Eliminate?

As I had commented, I ordered that filter on Amazon. It arrived and I hooked it up. Bingo - BC station images gone! I am a happy camper. I do realize that I could have avoided this by using the MF/HF antenna connector. However, at this time that is not practical for me. I probably will use it in the...

Re: AM Radio Crud - How to Eliminate?

Thanks for the input, folks. Since doing any DX / SWL’ing on the AM broadcast band is at the bottom of my list, the idea of a high pass filter came to mind. Did some Googling and found an inexpensive filter on Amazon that looks like a perfect fit. In fact, quite a few positive reviews of it by other...

AM Radio Crud - How to Eliminate?

I've just hooked up an RSP2pro on Windows 10 running under VMware Fusion on an iMac, and I have SDRuno. Have two antennas in use for my initial testing. Antenna 1 is connected to a ham radio 2m/70cm ground plane. Antenna 2 is connected to an 88 foot long doublet about 45 feet in the air. Using the A...

Re: RSP2 RF Protection Question

Hi Lou - Well, yes, 75 watts is a lot if one is simply trying to work the LEO (Low Earth Orbit) birds - in many cases (from what I've read) 5 watts from an HT is sufficient if one is using even a hand-held directional antenna. However, as I recall (from many, many years ago) from working the satelli...

Re: RSP2 RF Protection Question

Hi - thanks for the reply and the info. Not what I was hoping to hear, indeed. Placing a filter in the line would then preclude my being able to do the reverse - listening at all on 2 meters. Additionally, there are satellites with the uplink on 70 cm and downlink on 2 meters. I'll have to give some...

RSP2 RF Protection Question

I'm awaiting delivery of my RSP2 - first time user here, although I have played around with an RTL-SDR dongle a little. I have a ham radio transceiver (Elecraft K3) that I can operate/transmit CW, SSB, and FM on the 144 MHz band (2 meters). I want to use the RSP2 for (among other things) a receiver ...

Re: RSP2 frustration on Mac

Phil & Les - thanks for the replies - good to know the forum is fairly active! The reason I was wondering about the audio delays is that several years ago I had built a few small QRP SDR rigs that worked with either Quisk or HDSDR. Trying to send CW whilst listening to it on the SDR was ugly, to say...

Re: RSP2 frustration on Mac

Greetings all - newbie to the SRDplay arena here. I have been using one of the el cheapo SDR dongles for a few months, along with SDR#. I use the software on my iMac, running OS X and VMware, with the Windows 10 guest. It works OK, but as you probably now, there are spikes/spurs up the wazoo all ove...
