Re: Anyone ? - An SDRplay Radio Used As The Core Module

I use an RSP1A as an integrated modular part of a bigger system, in this case a roll-around test equipment cart. The cart contains an HP signal generator, dual trace oscilloscope, frequency counter, multimeter, onboard dedicated PC, wideband RF noise source, and storage for probes & cables. The ...

Re: RSP 1 Set-up settings challanges

4) I have seen two different DLL files called out during the course of my looking into my issue online. Below are both the files I have tried. I am confused as to which one I should be using at this point or does it matter. The files are ExtIO_RTL2832.DLL and ExtIO_RTL.DLL Neither of those are corr...

Re: SDRPlay RSP1 & SDR#?

I have an Airspy mini along with the latest SDRSharp and I don't see much difference between that and the RSP1A with older (1361) SDRSharp except for a few performance unrelated niceties such as on-screen bandplan etc. so if you're using the older 1361 version with your RSP1A then you've got all of ...

Automatic LNA settings w/band

The RSP1A varies its LNA setting (in the device control panel) automatically per frequency band selection. For example, if I have the radio tuned to 10 mhz, LNA set where I want it, and then retune to, say, 100 mhz in the FM broadcast band, the LNA gain automatically increases and raises the noise f...

Re: Apple (i.e. macOS) now 4th largest PC manufacturer in the world.

Good for them but since macOS still isn't as mainstream as Windows, I doubt that SDR software & support will ever reach the same level as Windows.....

Re: SDRPlay RSP1 & SDR#?

I downloaded and installed HDSDR from the SDRPlay site and it is working fine right off. I don't think I'm going to spend any more time with SDR# at this point. Honestly, I don't have the time for outdated software that is pesky to install. I've had enough of that back in the old DOS days I don't u...

Re: It's a miracle!

Very good on all! I've been using various SDR radios for about 6-7 years now and the RSP1 has become my most used ever piece of equipment. It pretty much stays turned on 24/7 connected to a Win 7/32bit machine. I use it in the morning before I go to work and then quite a bit after I get home, especi...

Re: Compared an RSP1A alternately with an RSP1

Well, as it turns out, I too have had an opportunity to compare both an RSP1 and an RSP1A side by side, same antenna, same frequencies, similar gain settings. My findings are much like Noel's. Biggest thing for me is I find myself readjusting the LNA & IF gain settings of the RSP1A much more tha...

Re: New User

Have you looked at the most recent version of SDRUno? There have been some improvements for frequency span, zoom and resolution bandwidth. Note - I made some changes to the my previous post. I made a mistake with LNA and IF gain comments. [/quote] Thanks for the info, I'll install the latest & ...
