SDR# limitations

Postby RustyCans » Sat Dec 19, 2015 12:43 pm

I'm picking up my shiny new SDR Play from the courier's on Monday and have been reading up to get ready.

I've just been reading about the kerfuffle with SDR# and this has me a bit worried. What exactly are the limitations of the SDR Play SDR# plug-in?

I'm unable to find any info on this. Just that there are some limitations.

I've been using SDR# and an RTL SDR (RTL2832 + R820T2) primarily for scanning with the "Frequency Manager and Scanner" and "Audio Recorder" plug-ins. Is this supported?

If not what is the best alternative for scanning and vox/squelch activated recording?

Quite simply, the author of SDR# has ensured that the software only marginally supports the RSP. Notably plugins and other features wont work. The RSP will work, but the raw power of the RSP has been curtailed so not to make the airspy look deficient.

Thanks.

So the scanning and VOX recording plug-ins I use won't work. That is disappointing.
