Re: Nothing But Noise on SDRUno

The direct frequency entry in SDRradio Console is quite straightforward - enter frequency in Mhz.Khz. However, I find that in general SDRUno meets my requirements better although Console does have some attractive features For my money the little 0's "agro" in SDRUno isn't too bad a price t...

Re: NDB reception

Hi Mike/Andy Thanks for your responses - I am in a rural location and apart from some "frying" that I believe emanates from overhead three-phase power lines, probably about 50M from my qth, things aren't that bad (I think) and unless ndb's are particularly weak signals, I would have expect...

NDB reception

I am about to display my ignorance yet again - Whilst I receive excellent quality cw/morse code signals all over the HF bands and have two antennae connected to Port A (Active mini-whip) and long-wire to the Hi-Z port pf an RSP-2, that perform well in the 190khz and upwards range, I have been unable...

Re: RA0SMS active mini-whip power supply

Hi Jukka/Heinrich The active mini-whip coax is grounded at the antenna end via a ground-spike and via it's power adapter to the common in-house dedicated earth. Also, I must confess that on further checking there seems to be little CONSISTENT difference in signal quality between the two power suppli...

Re: RA0SMS active mini-whip power supply

Thanks for your interest Jukka Not as far as i am aware. Either psu is connected to the same, earthed socket and connected by barrel plug to the RF isolating transformer, which is also grounded to my common earth system which is connected to copper a rising cold-water main. this is the best option t...

Re: RA0SMS active mini-whip power supply

Hi Heinrich Thanks for the response. I do not know the brand (Regulated DC power supply with short circuit protection) - purchased quite a few years ago, but it did check out on spec. Neither psu appear to be "noise generators," but the 13.8V unit produces weaker signals than the 12V origi...

RA0SMS active mini-whip power supply

Hi I have one of the subject mini-whips. Power requirements stipulate 12 - 14V/300ma and it has worked pretty well on a good quality switched regulator power supply at 12V. I have recently replaced this psu with a presumably superior bench type 13.8V/5-7amp regulated power supply unit, the output of...

Re: rsp1 drivers

Hi Mike
I know that this might seem a little "silly," but I've been there....(male - never read the instructions).
However, on several programmes there is a drop-down list that you need to access to select the rsp as opposed to the pre-selected default.
I hope that this may help.
