RSP2 and FM band sensitivity

Postby marsel90 » Tue Jan 09, 2018 10:08 am

Hello,

I saw rsp2 and I would probably buy one.
But I have a question: which is for FM band sensitivity 88 - 108 Mhz ?
I want dx-ing with him in fm band.

I haven't got any figures here, but I find the RSP2 as sensitive (or more so) as any other RX in my shack. To get the best out of it on very weak signals it is important to make sure there are no very strong signals within the selected b/w, so always select a sampling rate & decimation which gives about 200KHz final b/w to exclude the strong signal. I have found this can bring a noisy signal out of the noise.

Thank you for the answers.

I live in Craiova Romania and I have all the local radio stations within 3km of my antennas. The power of these radio stations is from 100w to 10kw, the only radio that does well under these conditions is Sony xdr-f1hd.
This is my youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/dxfmtv/videos where my receptions can be seen.
If someone can help me with a demo in the big FM band, it would be great.
