Re: SDRPlay TCXO?

Gave up searching for the pdf for the above TCXO ...and found this one instead from Farnell .. Less than £1 each so ordered 2 ...and the pdf datasheet is available. TXC 7Q-24.000MBN-T TCXO, GPS, 24MHZ, 3.2 X 2.5MM, CLIPPED SINE So will look into retrofitting one in due course.. I just hope it is sui...

Re: Metal case?

I too am interested in this ...as I want to physically fit the SDRplay inside a Small Frm Factor PC with limited space available.. Unfortunately commercial die cast boxes are too large in every respect ...thus I want a metal box that is just big enough to surround and encase the SDRplay pcb. I curre...

Next Question - DAB radio ?

So far I have successfully used my SDRplay to receive and decode data from the APT satellites successfully.. And found an early version of SDR# that will work with SDRplay when selected with EXTIO. The reason for using SDR# rather than HDSDR ..which is excellent software ...is the ability to use plu...

Re: SDRplay and useable software ?

Thanks guys for the replies .. I have downloaded SDR~1361 ..and can confirm it is working ok now with SDRplay ... I had to run the extio again and ascociate with SDR# instead of HDSDR.. Easy enough to do so both SDR softwares will remain in my system ..if slightly inconvenient to switch between them...

Re: SDRplay and useable software ?

Many thanks for the reply .. good to know that I can use HDSDR ...but I figured it was a little more complex than just piping the audio to WXtoIMG .. Previously I had needed Orbitron to accommodate the correct frequency when shifting between the noaa birds ...and this also corrected frequency for Do...

Hi there .. I have just received my SDRplay hardware today and so far am impressed with it ...but am now a bit worried and confused. I am no expert with SDR and previously used an RTL usb stick with SDR# to pick up and decode weather imagers from the noaa sats with a homebrew qfhx antenna.. I assume...
