audio latency issue with gqrx resolved

Postby N4TKO » Thu May 26, 2016 3:36 am

.... although i wish there were a more straightforward solution...
while trying to receive weather faxes using my SDRplay gqrx, and fldigi, i was having audio latency problems that would shift the sync randomly, resulting in a scrambled picture. however, recording the audio with gqrx's recording function creates a .wav file, that when played back into fldigi results in a good image...

i really don't like the idea of having to record hours of audio (especially in .wav format) to get a decent set of images from a fax session. if anybody else wants to try this, here's a condensed schedule of USCG fax transmissions in the US:
