Re: Cubic The Only Mac program For The RSP-2 ?

Unfortunately, the current Linux & Mac software offerings for SDR use are way behind their Windows counterparts in terms of features, ease of installation, and overall performance. I think that hardware & software developers are still concentrating most of their efforts where the large major...

Re: Easiest Software To Learn And Use Opinion ?

Hi, the simplest by far of the Windows based programs is HDSDR. It is available for download here on the SDRPlay website along with the others.

Re: HDSDR And RSP-2: selecting Which Ant. For Program ?

Hi Bob, I'm not certain but I think that you can select antennas from the Device Controller panel. In the new version of HDSDR (Beta 2.80) you can access that panel from the top button at the lower left of the HDSDR screen, the button which is labeled "SDR-Device" On other versions of HDSD...

Re: Loop Construction

Another method which works well is to bend said tubing around a 55 gallon barrel, preferably an old one so that you don't mind putting a small hole in it. Attach one end of the tubing to the barrel with a small screw or ?, and then gently walk around the barrel, bending the tubing around the circumf...

Re: Ghosts in the system

I can't imagine why your RSP2 is doing that. I use an RSP1A which is essentially the same in terms of core signal processing circuitry and I do not have such ghost signals.

Has anything in your software changed? Gain settings perhaps?

Re: Mac or Windows?

I would choose Windows. Many more SDR software choices, much easier to install said software, much more stable, mainstream support.

Re: Convince me to stay with SDRPlay (or the opposite)

Can't imagine why your RSp went deaf. I use both an RSP1 and an RSP1A and they are working flawlessly. I too contemplated buying an Airspy HF+ but I don't think that I will because of the frequency coverage limitations. I use HDSDR and older (rev 1361) SDR# with my RSPs and they work nicely. I alway...

Re: Can RSP1A Replace an Icom 7300?

Hi Dick, I saw your post about this on eHam. It is true that the RSP1A is a very good performing receiver. But so is the RX in the Icom IC-7300. For me, the answer would boil down to this: Do you want one box with no need for an external computer, and the restrictions of that? (IC-7300 = small scree...

Re: Testing RSPduo receiver sensitivity with noise generator

Thanks for posting this! Very good way to test receiver sensitivity and one which is new to me. I'm going to use this technique to measure the receiver of my Yaesu FT-817nd also :).

Re: Mostly good

IMO, you really need to be running Windows in order to get the most from this. And it does NOT need to be a super fast computer with Win 10 etc. for good performance. I run HDSDR and SDRSharp both with the RSP1A on an old Dell Optiplex 360 (2.8ghz duo core, 4gb RAM) with a very stripped down copy of...
