Re: Page of free sofware for SDR!!!

Re: Interference identification?

Thank you very much. It seems that I have this sort of noise but fortunately it is not so strong. That's probably the reason I never realized this was caused by a powerline modem. I just archived that as due to thunderstorm around. In fact I have more noise from other "local" sources: lcd/...
