Re: Long-wire performance on different ports, bands

I see from a tutorial video that SDRUno's main panel for the RSP1 has a prominent button for LNA. But I'm not finding it in SDRUno for RSP2. Has it been moved somewhere?

Re: Long-wire performance on different ports, bands

Thanks for the suggestion. Initially I didn't see an AGC toggle in SDRUno's main panel, and no mention of it in the manual, but after clicking a button marked "SETT." a new window opened with a check box for IF AGC -- I assume that's it? I unchecked the box which caused a gain slider to ap...

Long-wire performance on different ports, bands

I've been experimenting with my new SDRplay RSP2 with SDRUno, using for now as antenna a 40-foot (12m) long-wire with a plain-wire lead-in and a ground connection via a ground rod. On HF, with the antenna and ground attached to the RSP2's Hi Z antenna port, performance seems excellent in AM, CW and ...

Re: SDRUno going well on Mac, a couple of minor nits

As for HF, I'll have to keep working with it a bit before drawing conclusions. As is well-known, propagation conditions right now are not great. WWV and WWVH seemed to be under more noise than I've remembered the past few days with my Sony ICF-2010 receiver, but I haven't done side-by-side comparis...

Re: SDRUno going well on Mac, a couple of minor nits

Thanks for the info. That's basically what I've been doing as well to tune in frequencies -- either typing in all the digits in the RX window, or dragging in the main SP window.

Re: One new user's video of what he did on on day 1!

Thanks for the link, Jon, very interesting demo of some of the capabilities.

I posted some questions for the video's author on the YouTube page, but if you have any information on the points I'm asking about it would be great to hear.

SDRUno going well on Mac, a couple of minor nits

Yesterday I bought an SDRplay RSP2 and installed SDRUno in Windows 10 under Parallels 13 on my MacBook Pro laptop running macOS 10.12.5 at my home in the Los Angeles, California area. For an antenna, I have a roughly 50-foot longwire strung outside with a plain wire as a lead-in, and bought a couple...
