Re: Longwave Antenna Reception For Apartment

Hi Adam. I had exactly the same problem years ago but a Wellbrook 1530 loop saved my hobby. The noise with outdoor wire antennas had grown over the years and was reaching S9, blocking all but the strongest signals. I tried a remotely-mounted E-field 'probe', but it was just as bad as the wires. So o...

Re: re: having to reset to defaults on sdruno start up

No Paul - I installed Uno on my other laptop and the 'empty window' doesn't appear on that one. On the old i3, I think I'll uninstall, do a registry cleanup and re-install. If that doesn't clear it I'll just live with it. It's not exactly the end of the world, just an extra click on shut-down.

Re: re: having to reset to defaults on sdruno start up

Thanks for the input Paul. On point 2, I think I'll do a temporary install on my other laptop to see if I get the same problem. The one I routinely use is a skanky old i3 that's had so many bits of doubtful software shoved on it it must be near death. Re 3 (step sizes), the latest one was a 5kHz ste...

Re: HDSDR and RSP1A not working properly after install.

Don't put yourself down, M. That mistake is incredibly common, even among those who regard themselves as 'old hands'. I've lost count of the number of times I've had to point out to some impatient know-all that they are looking for amateur VHF signals on 145 kHz..... :mrgreen: It's easy to get it wr...

Re: re: having to reset to defaults on sdruno start up

The only odd things I've found so far are 1. RF gain all the way to max on startup, causing overloading. I have to reset it to half way every time. 2. There is an 'unused window' left in the taskbar after shutdown which I have to clear manually before next use. 3. When changing modes, sometimes I am...

Re: HDSDR and RSP1A not working properly after install.

If I'm reading it right I think you are tuned to 1440 MHz, Missiletech.

Re: Reception drops off after a few mintues?

The spike in the middle is the local oscillator and is normal, but it should be well-suppressed (ie only small) when everything is working normally. As for the other problem, I wonder if your PC is lacking enough 5 volts on the USB?

Re: APRS Interference on 144.240Mhz

It's also a good thing to use as little RF gain as possible, rather than going for max. This will reduce the effect of strong local signals. Another way is to choose a small RF bandwidth (low sample rate) so that the interfering signal is off-screen and outside the IF b/w. As Glovisol says, the new ...

Re: 1.3 Unable to select WFM and SWFM

illlm - the DAB notch filter will only appear if you have the RSP1a or the RSPDuo. Other models do not have the hardware to implement it. My RSP2 only shows notches for MW and FM.

Re: AUX SP Window

I raised this issue yesterday after I discovered that I could no longer fit the RX Control, Main and Aux SP windows across the top of the screen without serious overlap. I contacted HQ and the bug is now on the 'to do' list. Great service once again.
