Re: MAC API Breaks GQRX

I am running Linux, but maybe its similar... grosmosdr by default has no support for the SDRPlay. You have 2 choices: 1. Build grosmosdr with non free drivers enabled 2. Install soapysdr/soapysdrplay (preferred method). I had to build it from source. You need quite recent versions of soapysdr and gr...

Re: RSP1 with Yaesu FT-1000MP Mk V

Maybe you have to configure your FT-1000 to actually use the RX IN input? On my TS590SG, I have to do this, otherwise the TRX antenna (SO239 socket) is used. What happens if you connect your antenna to the SO239 socket? On the TS590SG, I have to enable the RX out function too, because using the RX o...

Re: Audio latency and CW QSK

Unfortunately if have no suggestion, but I am suffering from the same problem. How long is your delay/latency? I measured about 130ms from antenna input to audio output on a good day (it depends a bit how the audio output buffer size is adjusted) and that pretty much destroys any QSK. I am running L...

Re: RSP2 and Linux

I just noticed in the document that for CubicSDR I have to build wxwidgets from source. On Ubuntu 16.04 I just installed wxwidgets and wxwidgets devel packages and could build CubicSDR just fine and it seems to work without problems. Is there a problem with the standard wxwidgets that I just didn't ...

Re: SDR play connected via IF out and transmit

I have my RSP1 connected to the RX antenna output of my TS590SG without any protection. No problems so far. I also tested with an active whip antenna connected directly to my RSP1. The whip delivers about 10 dBm when I transmit. This might be considered dangerous, but no problems so far. Transmit po...

Re: CubicSDR working fine, Gqrx not so good.

Got soapy working with gqrx needed to change the driver string to 'driver=sdrplay,soapy=0' now to work out how to change the antenna. Seems to be unsupported: /******************************************************************* * Antenna API *********************************************************...

Re: CubicSDR working fine, Gqrx not so good.

I am running gqrx with the soapysdr (not the gr.osmosdr non free) driver and have seen this same behavior. gqrx sets the default bandwidth to 0 and expects that in this case the driver calculates the optimum bandwidth for the configured sample rate (I think that's a gnu-radio convention). With soapy...

Re: SoapySDDRPlay not working

Yes, all of our changes were pushed back into the main SoapySDRPlay github repository. Thanks a lot! It's working fine here with gnuradio and gqrx. The new gain setting is much better than the old one. The audio latency seems to be smaller now, but this is not confirmed by measurements yet. At leas...

Re: DC removal not working with API 2.09

The DC removal was working, but due to a problem in gqrx it could not be disabled. This is now fixed. But still the DC spike is much more visible than with API 1.97 and matching soapysdrplay. The spike is even worse with gain reduction at maximum. I attach 3 screen shots: 1. DC correction disabled 2...

DC removal not working with API 2.09

I am running gqrx on Ubuntu 16.04. After I updated to API 2.09 and newest SoapySDRPlay from github the DC correction does not work any more. I see a DC spike in the spectrum which was not the case with the API 1.97. If I enable DC removal in gqrx, I get the following output on the console: mir_sdr_S...
