No signal on FM Broadcast band 100MHz

Postby hammer » Thu Apr 06, 2017 5:11 am

Hi!

I recently got an SDR Play rsp 2, and hooked it up to my long wire antenna on the High Z port, and was very satisfied with the performance right away. When i tuned in the FM broadcast band, it was completely silent though. And my area is full of FM radio stations.

Have i done something wrong? Or is my SDR Play rsp 2 broken in some way? I tried both Console V3 and SDRuno, but neither gave me any signals on the 90-109MHz FM band.

You have to connect an antenna to SMA A. The balanced wire connection is only for 30MHZ and below.

Also note that when you use ports A or B the MW/FM notch is not enabled.
