Re: S-METER READING

That is why I do not use automatic IF-agc. Mostly setting it on -40 dB manual since I started using SDRplay models. Also its the SNR that is most important. S-meters are just a indication, but offers little value to me. I mostly use a external variable attenuator with 5 dB steps up to 65 dB to avoid...

Re: Cheap but usable wire?

Trevor, I use old US-army telephone wire. It is made from mainly stainless steel strands and a few copper strands. This offers a very good strength and good conductivity. It is dual wire and dates from 1953! and is sold on reels of a quarter mile. I paid €20 for a reel a few years back. The wire las...

visions for v1.24

Hi software team, May I ask what will be implemented in the RSPduo diversion functionality? Is it your intention to walk the same path as the PowerSDR_mRX control software? I had very nice results with this software in the past with the nice and logical direction steering logic behind the controls w...

Re: London calling

Just like Ralf commented, maybe its more convenient, for us mortal radio passionates to name your state or a big town or city nearby your home. Also the antenna used to make this reception would be more revealing. I'ts of course a nice catch, but for all novices here the conditions of the reception ...

Re: MegActiv MA305FT Antenna

Jim, its one of the better active antennas of the last 5 years. Have owned one for two years using it in my garden on a 5 meter pole and worked fine, but with a 50 cm element. It also was very usefull on my car also. I used the first MegActiv MA-305 and have no experience with the present FT model. ...

Re: Extending the range of a Discone antenna down to 3.6 MHz

Bas, I mostly check a balun with a VNA and after this is acceptable I fire up the W&G SPM30 and see what the attenuation is on various frequencies. When a balun has a good Return Loss figure the next thing is the resistance and SWR value. :)

Re: SDRUno Ready for Diversity RX With SDRDuo?

@Roger, Yes, I have used the Afedri822x with powersdr, but it works only with 192 kHz sample rate and I need at least 1600 kHz. Linrad works fairly good but is not intuitive to use. Its to clumbersome and it takes a long time to get a reasonable signal out of it. My hair has gone grey using it, LOL....
