Re: AM broadcast stations on evry band to 30 MHz?!

Now I just need to play "find the F to BNC adapter" again, does it have to be 50 ohms Do you mean BNC/SMA? What is the approximate impedance of a long wire anyways? "Longwires" do no have a constant impedance over the frequency range. That depends on length, height above ground ...

Re: Would wrapping the unit in AlFoil tape help shield it?

The answer may sound blunt, but it is: When shielding the unit with foil improves the noise situation then it helps against electric stray fields. When shielding the unit with a steel cabinet (iron) improves the noise situation then it helps against magnetic and electric stray fields. But when you d...

Re: RA0SMS Miniwhip bad performance on SDRPlay

As soon as my gout goes away in my foot I'll take the RSP to a friend This is certainly the best solution to find out. 80 mA seem to be OK. If it should work at your friend's location, I have some thoughts (theoretically): The Russian electronics uses a dual gate MOSFET. According to my experience ...

Re: RA0SMS Miniwhip bad performance on SDRPlay

You could open the feed unit and measure the current where the fuse is placed with the Amp meter to get a first impression. If it is not within (estimated) 70 and 90 mA something is wrong in the antenna amplifier.

Re: RA0SMS Miniwhip bad performance on SDRPlay

Have you tried the antenna on a different receiver to rule out that is is defective?

Re: New User and Virtual Audio Cable

Try VB-Cable or HiFi-Cable from Vincent Burel http://vb-audio.pagesperso-orange.fr/Cable/ It's donation ware. You can also use VAC from Eugene Muzychenko. http://software.muzychenko.net/eng/ It's commercial. If your PC's soundcard has a Stereomix pin (sometimes this must be activated in the recordin...

Re: SDRPlay with SDRuno. Dream not decoding DRM!

I installed the faad2.drm.dll into the folder. Just to make sure: The dll should be called libfaad2.dll . I have it running with Dream 1.13 (for media contens like French slide shows ;-)) and Dream 2.1. In some earlier versions of Dream they called it faad2_drm.dll (just renaming helped ;-)), but I...

Re: Signals moving the opposite way of my tuning

Hello,
the signals moving from left to right must be "ghosts", that is mirror products due to overload/intermodulation in a tuner stage. Try to reduce tuner gain.
Are there strong local stations near you?

Re: SDRUno CAT problem

Hello Paul, I do not have an FT2000, but I read from web sites that people have connected a coaxial cable to a connector marked "SCOPE" inside the FT2000, which is a 69.450 MHz output. You can "receive" this output with your SDRPlay. But I do not know the pracical details as I do...

Re: SDRplay not recognized by W10

Reading some of the messages about changes in kernel driver signing I am afraid that the only solution for the end-user is that the companies obtain (that is purchase) a new signature from Microsoft. So far Microsoft has not forced me to update, I am still on Win 10-1511. But I fear that several dev...
