Hi all,

I finished a first version of the python application, that saving a waterfall in the file, so its easy to check whats going on the band.

Command line:
python3 --sdr=sdrplay --imagewidth=2048 --sr=8000000 --f=100000000 --average=32 --sdrgain="IFGR:40;RFGR:4"

Result: FM band

Sources and installation manual:

Feedback is welcomed.

Hi all.

Lots of improvements in code: IQ saving, timetable/batch mode, Raspberry Pi support.

This utility looks nice. Using python provides a lot of flexibility for the user.

With SDRplay devices, like RSP2pro, you have the option of using Zero IF or Low IF modes.
The switch of modes involves setting an IF bandwidth.
Does your code allow this setting?

You have to be careful when setting the mode so it would also be useful to read back the radio's "state" to check the settings.

I had a look at your code but it wasn't obvious that you could change modes.
