Re: High Z with G5RV

Ladder line is balanced, so connect across P and N. Ignore the G terminal.

Re: RSP2 Mini Active Whips +5v socket b coax on VLF

Hi Wireman. I woudn't use either of the SMA sockets for low frequency stuff, simple as that. SDRPlay recommend the Hi-z input should be used for frequencies below 1.5 MHz, and by the time you get down to LW it is the only input worth using, as the SMA's give awful noise and overloading effects.

Re: how do u calibrate sdruno...

Just follow the instruction in the calibration panel. But first, make sure the signal you intend to use is strong and steady. Then place the tuning cursor away from the central 'spike'. Then follow those instructions. In step 2, better wording would be 'type in the exact frequency of the signal you ...

Re: SDRuno suggestions...

My suggestion is a faster 'slow' setting for the waterfall. HDSDR has a variable speed, but Uno has only a x100 setting which is very slow.

Re: SDRuno suggestions...

This is odd. I have the 'MA' button permanently engaged and I shut down the program by clicking the standard windows X button in the top corner of the small MAIN panel. Works every single time.

Re: Active loop build - construction questions

Hello! If it's a broadband untuned loop the gap is not important as the loop is low impedance. The feed should be taken near the ends of the loop but again this is not critical. In my experimental loops I use plastic conduit boxes. I'm sure you know the kind of thing - about 3 inches diameter and an...

Re: Beverage or Wellbrook Loop?

I've just had a reply from Andy Ikin. He says he's not quite retiring yet, but is reducing his range of products. He didn't say which products would be stopped.

Re: Beverage or Wellbrook Loop?

Oh dear, Rack. That'll be the end of an era. I was only talking to him a couple of weeks ago and he didn't mention this, I'll have to email him and see what gives!

Re: Can't install sdr play with hdsdr

I hope you sort it. I know there is a problem with XP but I can't remember what it is or how you are meant to fix it. But fixable it is. Good luck.
