Re: SDRPlay Duo no HF ;)

Most indoor loops are directional, some with deep nulls(lower signals) in the perpendicular plane(broadside) of the loop. You can often rotate these antennas such that noise is decreased and signals are rising nicely above the noise floor. It is also possible to rotate for maximum strength of the si...

Re: PRACTICAL PC CAPABILITY GUIDELINES FOR RSP OPERATION

I use an older Dell Optiplex 360 duo core, 4gb RAM, running Windows 7 pro/32bit. I use HDSDR for HF, SDRSharp r1361 for VHF/UHF. With this, I can run full 10mhz span with no dropouts and good speed. CPU load averages 30-50%. Said computer is dedicated only to the radio and has no other software ins...

Re: SDRplay RSP2 appears to be useless on Ubuntu

I've tried both Ubuntu and Windows again and again and my experience has been that these receivers and their associated drivers and software work far better and with far less hassle on Windows. Nothing against Ubuntu nor Linux in general, I use it for some pretty cool applications. But not this :).

Re: GQRX or HDSDR

I use HDSDR for HF and SDRSharp v1361 for VHF & UHF. HDSDR is very resource friendly and easy to use. With the newest beta release, it adds some very handy features which are not present in other programs such as auto band zooming, band stacking registers, etc. I've tried pretty much every avail...

Re: User Experience

John, That sure is great! Many more listening adventures await you :). I've been in the Ham/SWL hobby since the early 1970s and I started out using hand-me-down military surplus rigs which were old even then but I was thankful to have them and had many airwave adventures. Later on I moved up into va...

Everything in that post was done with a BG7TBL running at 8vdc and it worked fine. Still does, in fact.

Re: Using your SDRPlay RSPx as a Spectrum Analyzer for testing

With that version of SDR# getting a bit long in the tooth and all the improvements to SDRuno and other compatible software, is there any reason to use that old version of SDR# in 2019? Can SDR# do anything the others can't? Yes, there is good reason IMO to use this older version of SDR# for this. F...
