SDRPlay as Pan Adapter/Spectrum Scope for FTdx5000

Postby N6PET » Tue Feb 16, 2016 12:55 am

Hello to the community.

I am searching for information on how SDR-Play can be used with either SDR-radio Console or HDSDR interfaced with a Yaesu FTdx5000 as Spectrum scope. I have seen a handful of YouTube videos and some sites briefly discussing this but not getting into specifics on the interface. I have a FTdx-5000 and been using SDR-Radio Console with my SDR-Play. I want to see the SDR software display the correct VFO frequency the radio is on and respond to VFO changes accordingly and vice versa.

Can someone please point me to the right direction how this can be done.

Greatly appreciated,

Look up OMNI-RIG from Afreet Software.
Many of the TS-590 users are doing this with OMNI-RIG. It offers the total function of a "point and click" band scope and parallel tracking second receiver.
Easily set up with both SDRconsole and HDSDR.

Have Fun...

Thank you GasMan. If I'm understanding you right, you are recommending another software (Omn-Rig) to remotely control the radio, which has nothing to do with HDSDR nor SRD-Radio?

Once you have installed OMNIRIG in your machine, either HDSDR and SDR Console will catch the parameters of your radio in OMNIRIG and runs in the background allowing the full control

One question : how you connect the SDRPLAY to the back of the Yaesu FT5000?
Via the RXOUT bnc plug or via the IF OUT rca plug?

Thank you! I got it to work ;) . I am using the RCA IF Out of the FTdx5000. Its working exactly as we intend it to with HDSDR. I'm still figuring out how to adjust the IF bandwidth with SDR-Radio Console. HDSDR was pretty straight forward, EXTIO , set IF bandwidth to 8Mhz, then fine tune it but I am searching where the equivalent setting is for the SDR-Radio Console since I actually like Console better.

Thanks again for all the help and appreciate it more if anyone knows how to configure SDR-Radio Console to function the same way.
