Low signal strength?
I bought the SDRplay box a week or two ago so I'm still learning and
would be happy for some advice :
I'm running Windows 7 64bit, installed the usb-driver (MiricsSDRAPIInstaller_1.8.1.exe)
and installed HDSDR (2.70) with the plugin (SDRplay_EXTIO_Installer_v3.6.exe).
I've tried connecting the sdr to the following two :
and a standard USB cable to the PC.
I start up HDSDR , default settings for the plugin and hit start.
I -am- definitely picking up a few things (AM radio ~ 5-6 MHz, RF remote activity @ 433 MHz), and I seem to be
able to at least see the local FM stations in the waterfall.
Signal strength in any case never really seems to go above -100dB
Although you can hear music and talking, the stations are very noisy.
I've tried testing outdoors with no change. A normal radio works fine.
I've tried experimenting with the settings for the plugin, but no combination of settings seem to do anything.
