Re: RaspberryPi Image and No Audio

I get exactly the same here, no audio after connecting to a HTMI monitor. I did a Google search for this and there are dozens of others with the same problems, along with some suggestions for a fix but I have not got it working yet.

Re: Is Windows 10 ok now?

There have never been any problems with Windows 10 with SDRs. I have used Windows 10 since the early beta versions and I have RSP1, RSP2, Airspy, Airspy HF+, RTL-SDR, and various Winradios and the whole lot work fine.

Re: MegaDipol MD300DX

Hi Noel, No, this is not a quiet RF environment, it is a typically suburban one with a fair bit of hash. Bonito do recommend that it works better in a quiet environment, but what antenna does not :-) I am using it as a vertical dipole but have not tried it on beacons etc as there are not many which ...

MegaDipol MD300DX

I have been using my Wellbrook Loop ALA1530S+ for many years now for HF reception (mainly HFDL and GMDSS utilities). It was quite successful, however I have recently had the chance to use the MegaDipol MD300DX antenna from Bonito - https://www.bonito.net/hamradio/en/megadipol-md300dx-wideband-active...

Re: RSP1a and dongle on one computer

To answer the query as to whether you can run the RSP1a and a dongle on the PC simultaneously, there is no problem with this. I often run my RSP2 using SDRuno to cover a number of HFDL transmissions along with an Airspy HF+ using SDR# to cover another HFDL freq which is outside of the 10MHz the RSP2...

Re: SDRuno: best settings for AIS decoding?

Unless you have a QTH on a cliff top overlooking the sea, AIS traffic is difficult to copy over 30km or so inland.

Re: Is this a worthwhile addition

MultiPSK is the best all round decoder available, it decodes around 100 different digital modes (the HAM ones in the free version, but commercial decodes like ACARS, HFDL, VDL2, GMDSS are only available in the 'PRO' version)

Re: Metal housing upgrade for RSP-2?

The RSP2 has a metallic coating on the inside of the plastic box, so there is no real need for a metal box. I bought the metal box for my RSP1 and even with it, I saw no real difference in performance.

Re: Multiple VRX receiver /tuner operation

If you need to run multiple VRX (I use ten), you need virtual audio cable which gives you any number of virtual channels for sound. These are usually used for utility listening where you can decode multiple channels simultaneously, however if you need to listen to multiple channels, you can switch b...
