You are measuring SWR, as such it may be 50 Ohm.sdrom33 wrote:Exactly what I wrote. The official published specifications by Sdrplay say: 50 Ohm input impedance. If you write in so many words it is not so, you are being unfair to Sdrplay and misleading other forum members. It is not a question of "transmitter" or "receiver".ON5HB wrote:
What do you mean wrong info and specs?
It's not a transmitter but a receiver, as such impedance isn't crucial to good workings.
If you are sure that the Rsp1a input impedance is not 50 Ohm, open a ticket. Anyway if you look at the previous post you can see the rsp1a input impedance is 50 Ohm spot on.
I do not care about SWR nor do I ever conclude anything from antenna-analyzers or SWR meters.
Antenna-analyzers have been proven to be wrong so many times, it's not funny any-more.
Example, you can perfectly connect a 50 Ohm dummyload with a T and a bit of wire, it will be 1:1 perfectly and even transmit a signal.
There won't be any losses but still it's not an antenna nor does it work.
I have a G5RV connected and splitted 3 ways with T-connectors, signals are very strong and I'm very sure it's nowhere near 50 Ohm.
When I use a 50 Ohm splitter the signals go down a lot. I noticed this and stated as such.
I fail to see where it's unfair or misleading. The RSP1A's work splendid far better then anything I have used before, even better as the Icom7300.
Funny is, I installed and MFJ SDR-switch the other day, the RSP1A's have the same signal as before, but the Icom7300 dropped by 10~20db in reception.
Why did the Icom drop and the RSP1A's didn't?
