Re: Use SDR while transmitting

I am using an automatic QSK antenna switch so I can use the same antenna between my transmitter and receiver. The switch mutes the audio output from the computer and attenuates any signal coming back through the receive line by -80db. However, the SRD1 still desensitizes and hangs long enough to be ...

Re: SW Recommendation(s) for Newbie

Martin makes a good point. They don't use up much resources, so download and try them all. Some take a little more playing around with to get the results you want and some do some things better than others, but experimenting is part of this technical hobby. - Daniel, W2DLC

Re: No IF vs Low IF - when, why, and how?

Go to the Main panel and click SETT. in the upper left. There, under INPUT you will find a setting for IF mode. Also, in the same settings, click the CAL tab and you can select the LO Plan Frequency.

Re: New User Problems

At the bottom of the Receiver window is a yellow Audio Volume Gain slider bar. At the left side of the bar, click "Mute" to turn off the volume for a particular VRX.
