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...

Re: RSP Spectrum analyser software available shortly

Hi All Just to let you know, Andy and Simon at SDRplay are currently giving the analyser a thorough test, including finding out what Windows platforms may have problems running it, and to make sure it works with all SDRplay products. They have already given me some invaluable feedback. In response ...

Re: RSP1A and HDSDR

Thanks for the vid link. It was for SDRUno, I would like to know whether, and if so, how to get the same functionality with HDSDR Dave G3UEG Hi Dave, Sorry for late answer but I didn't se this until now. First, it is entirely possible and is easy to set up the Griffen Powermate for use with HDSDR. ...

Re: Not a great experience so far...

Well, if you've followed all of the videos etc. then I'm not sure what to say except that I personally have found that HDSDR is MUCH easier to set up and use with OmniRig than SDRUno is......

Re: RSP1A PC software on a Mac-is it possible

I've read that some folks have run SDRUno, HDSDR, et al on the Mac under various emulators with good success. But such is difficult to set up and maintain. If you want to use the Windows SDR programs, probably is best to dedicate a simple Windows machine to the purpose. Despite what some say, it doe...

Re: HOW ABOUT A TRACKING GENERATOR?

No dedicated tracking generator is needed. These units work very well with a broadband noise source such as those easily available on eBay and other places. I have very successfully used an RSP1 along with a cheap BG7TBL noise source which I bought on eBay in order to measure filter bandwidth, and I...

Re: RSP Spectrum analyser software available shortly

.....I won't be providing an interface to other SDR radios by using extio.dll, or any other means, so the analyser will be restricted to using the SDRplay range of radios only..... 73's - Steve Probably wise, because then it can be optimized for these radios. Also far less for you to keep track of ...

Re: RSP Spectrum analyser software available shortly

I just thought of something else which would be helpful - direct access to the RSPx device control panel. Perhaps just a simple button to bring it up?
