Re: RSP-2 antenna select via Device Control Panel?

In my case it goes like this: Start SDRUno from cold. Press PLAY Enter (say) 450 MHz and select Ant A. Now press the 160m band button then select Hi-z. This more often than not causes reception to stop and the waterfall just shows vertical lines. Pressing STOP then PLAY corrects it and reception car...

Re: Only half of SP1 spectrum displayed

I'm glad you've found it, Hugo. I was wracking my brain to think of what it might be but got nowhere!

Re: Seeing spectrum of UHF (HDTV) Broadcast Band

As you suspect, you could see only 10 MHz at a time. There's not a lot to see with digital TV, just 'blocks' of what looks like noise. Looking at analogue TV signals used to be quite interesting as you could pick out the main video signal, the chroma subcarrier and the sound channel.

Re: Discone recommendations?

I use CT100-type satellite cable for all my lead-ins as it is cheap, low-loss up to GHz and flexible. It's a 7mm diameter cable, but with a bit of ingenuity you can fit normal connectors. I tend to terminate in the shack with satellite F-connectors and then adapt from there.

Re: RSP-2 antenna select via Device Control Panel?

Mike - I use SDRUno these days and that behaves the same. It will always seize up when moving from port 1 to Hi-z, but simply pressing the 'stop' button and then the 'play' button brings it back to life.

Re: Windows 10 professional & SDRUno

Hi Paul. Re the poor results on sync AM mode. Check you are not receiving on top of the LO frequency, as this will cause distortion on AM and locking problems on sync AM. It's always best with any SDR to keep the receive frequency and the LO a few tens of KHz apart. Just click the frequency cursor o...

Re: Choppy/Stuttering audio across platforms.

This is usually a lack of power in the PC. Running the full 10 MHz bandwidth on anything less than a whiz-bang computer will usually cause problems. My i5 laptop (clocked at 2.4 GHz with 4 Gigs ram) is fine up to 8 MHz but stalls and stutters at 10 MHz. At lower b/w's I can play music and surf the w...

Re: Changing Size of Screens?

No. Only a couple of the windows are adjustable at the moment. I think it's under review.
