NEED CHECKLIST FOR SDRPAY RSP2/NOOELEC BALUN 1:9 SETUP

Postby ki5ss » Wed May 03, 2017 2:07 am

After my first attempted to receive signals with SDRPLAY RSP2 with the NooElec Balun 1:9 and did not receive any signals I gave up and set the SDRPLAY RSP2 aside and neglected to give it a second try. That was last year. Now I want to give it a second try. I need a check list for the SDRPLAY RSP2 with the NooElec Balun 1:9 with a BNC adapter for various bands. Does anyone have such a check list?

SDRplay has a guide online along with connections examples.

THANKS! I was double checking my information. I already have the PDF link. So, I am good to go for testing the balun with SDRPLAY RSP2, even if I may not need the balun like the other post implies.

The problem was probably more associated with me not advancing enough along the learning curve with SDRuno and SDRPlay RSP2 than with the Nooelec Balun 1:9 setup. Anyway I finally got SDRuno working because I focused on learning more about it by spending lengthy time with it. So much for "plug n play." I noticed later that I did not have the Nooelec Balun connected to the SDRPlay RSP2. So much for trying new options.

Thanks folks! 73

I noticed later that I did not have the Nooelec Balun connected to the SDRPlay RSP2. A random length wire was connected directly to the SDRPlay RSP2. So much for trying new options.
