Re: SDRuno freezes

A similar problem is mentioned in this thread: http://www.sdrplay.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=2443 There seems to be a small bug in the antenna switching or gain control sections which can cause an 'out of range' error and a freeze. I believe the good chaps are looking into it and will sor...

Re: SDRuno Frustration

The more time you spend with SDRUno the easier it gets, but I agree that some of the controls and settings are buried in places where you would not expect them. I think it would a big help to have the program initially start up with a ready-made screen layout so that new users wouldn't have to start...

Re: Ideas for future Updates

I'd just like to repeat my plea for separate MHz & KHz buttons. Entering everything as KHz is very confusing, especially when you get to VHF and above! So to be able to enter (say) 60 KHz using the KHz key and 456.123 MHz using the MHz key would be a Godsend. My Signal Hound uses this method - y...

Re: RSP-2 antenna select via Device Control Panel?

In my case it goes like this: Start SDRUno from cold. Press PLAY Enter (say) 450 MHz and select Ant A. Now press the 160m band button then select Hi-z. This more often than not causes reception to stop and the waterfall just shows vertical lines. Pressing STOP then PLAY corrects it and reception car...

Re: Only half of SP1 spectrum displayed

I'm glad you've found it, Hugo. I was wracking my brain to think of what it might be but got nowhere!

Re: Seeing spectrum of UHF (HDTV) Broadcast Band

As you suspect, you could see only 10 MHz at a time. There's not a lot to see with digital TV, just 'blocks' of what looks like noise. Looking at analogue TV signals used to be quite interesting as you could pick out the main video signal, the chroma subcarrier and the sound channel.

Re: Discone recommendations?

I use CT100-type satellite cable for all my lead-ins as it is cheap, low-loss up to GHz and flexible. It's a 7mm diameter cable, but with a bit of ingenuity you can fit normal connectors. I tend to terminate in the shack with satellite F-connectors and then adapt from there.

Re: RSP-2 antenna select via Device Control Panel?

Mike - I use SDRUno these days and that behaves the same. It will always seize up when moving from port 1 to Hi-z, but simply pressing the 'stop' button and then the 'play' button brings it back to life.

Re: Windows 10 professional & SDRUno

Hi Paul. Re the poor results on sync AM mode. Check you are not receiving on top of the LO frequency, as this will cause distortion on AM and locking problems on sync AM. It's always best with any SDR to keep the receive frequency and the LO a few tens of KHz apart. Just click the frequency cursor o...
