Re: VHF and Above - Initial Observations

Ah, message understood. I'll try scudding about UHF with a 5 MHz bw. I rarely go above 2 MHz.

Re: VHF and Above - Initial Observations

Hi Scott. I've been using the new Uno software for a day or so and I haven't found your IQ reversal problem. I listen quite a bit around 860/870 MHz and everything seems fine on the SRP with Uno, no reversal necessary. All freq's are where they should be, confirmed with a different receiver. My prob...

Re: Wow, thanks!

A bit more info on the VLF problems. I have two frequencies stored in memory - one at around 243 MHz, the other 60 KHz. If I recall the VHF one it works perfectly, but when I click on the VLF one it does not work. The digital frequency readout changes to 60 KHz, but the spectrum and waterfall contin...

Wow, thanks!

Free as well! After downloading and installing, I struggled for a while and finally realised I should read the manual. I'm impressed, but sometimes find myself unable to move the tuning ribbon - is this a bug or a feature? Second, when looking around VLF, I find that sometimes all the expected signa...

Re: SDRplay Ghost signals

Hi Khitryy. The way the RSP works means it has spurious responses just like any other. Sadly, the RSP has a spurious DAB response in the 70 MHz area and even though the front-end filters reduce this, it does not go away completely. I'm not sure whether the response is due to an unwanted mix in the t...

Re: Can only pick up my local radio station

Hi John It's hard to tell from those shots, but it looks like you might have the settings all wrong for what you are trying to receive. In the first shot, you seem to be tuned to 236 KHz AM. That's LW radio. I'm not sure where you live, but do you have LW radio there? Also a Skyscan antenna won't be...

Re: sdr-console, no audio output on cw

This is one of the reasons I gave up on Console. Everything an be going fine, then you start looking at weak signals and...no audio. It is something that has plagued Console from the earlier versions. The other main reason is that I find Console over complex and difficult to 'drive'. I'll stick to H...

Re: Ferrite and interference spikes?

Hi Mike. This seems to be a common problem and it's one I have as well, mainly between 30 and 60 MHz and again around 440/460 MHz. In my case, removing the antenna gets rid of them, indicating it's a local interference source. No amount of filtering or screening makes any difference. I think the adv...

Re: Serveral Issues here - pls help

I notice that in all these cases of poor reception, the wanted signal is lined up with the DC spike. Surely this is a no-no? Why not just move the wanted frequency to one side? Apologies if I've mis-read the situation (I'm good at that...).

Re: Interference 255mhz

It's a known problem. Because the SDRPlay uses a converter to cover this frequency range, images are a problem. Try selecting a different LO frequency (EXTIO> advanced) or if this is not possible, an external filter.
