Does RSP2 work with Gnu Radio?

Postby Spazoo » Wed Oct 25, 2017 12:45 pm

I’m considering purchasing but I’d like to know if it works with Gnu Radio.

Thanks.

It supports the SoapySDR libraries, so you will either need to get the gr-osmosdr build that supports SoapySDR or have a look at the work done by Frank Werner-Krippendorf with osmosdr for SDRplay here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xlXDkWQ59F4

It does. I recently installed it on the latest Kali. Takes a couple of steps including installing osmosdr like posted above. Nice resource is Crazy Danish Hacker who’s setting it all up for GSM sniffing. I mostly followed his steps and got it (almost) working.

Got it almost working, but gnuradio kept reporting errors. After installing GRC (Gnu Radio Companion) en jugglng with some examples involving SDRPlay libs it started working.

I’m using gqrx regularly with reasonable results. Antenna selection is not possible, but Antenna Port A works fine.

So if you have a reasonable ampunt of linux experience (apt install shouldn’t be new to you :)) it will work just fine.

Hi, have you done it successful? I am using RSP2 and I want to do somethig with RSP2 and gnuradio. But I failed. Can you give me your grc file? I have constructed one, some errors occur in my settings. Can you give me some help?

I picked up one of these after Christmas. Doing lots of manual compiling resulted in basic tuning on Debian 9 (stretch) with Cubic, but I still haven't gotten GNU Radio or gqrx working. I've tried combinations of Soapy, osmosdr, etc., but nothing seems to work. I just tried starting over, following the official instructions for installing on non-Windows, then compiled GNU Radio and gqrx from scratch - neither seem to work. Using gqrx does give me a waterfall, but I've tried using the settings that are working in Cubic, and all I get is noise. Really frustrating.

Can anyone provide step-by-step instructions for getting GNU Radio working? The official git repo doesn't seem to work if you just follow all the appropriate instructions for the project and supporting projects (e.g. gr-osmosdr).

I just saw the message posted yesterday about official support coming in gr-osmosdr: https://www.sdrplay.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=2881 (in beta at time of writing). Going to give that a try!
