Re: SW2 waterfall lines

Hello Dave,

A standard .wav file. I would guess the SW2 software
would produce readable files although I might not
get the frequency and other hardware related data - but
that does not matter for this experiment.

Please respond off list.

Leif


Thanks Leif

I will do this . What format would you like me to do the recording in ? Do you mean using the SW2 software ? Please confirm .

Yes the noise blanker on my TS590 does a good job of suppressing this . However the one built into the Elad Duo I have not tried much because I generally use the Elad Duo for WSPR and digital modes ( now almost exclusively FT8 ) using WSJT-X directly with the Elad Duo in standalone mode without SW2.

Best Regards

Willi,

   yes, I think you are right. Thunderbird and the likes do not send info back when some messages are marked as spam.
Only the Web interface probably does that, and, as evidenced by a couple of messages of today, it looks like the culprit
is mainly on the ISPs which, for their own reasons, decide that some messages are spam, and act consequently.

So, if you receive a messages from groups.io stating that you have been unsubscribed because you marked a message
as spam, do not feel guilty... :-)  The real offender is your ISP... but you have anyway the chance, offered by groups.io,
to immediately re-subscribe to the group...

OK, thanx Paul.  I am a new lurker here and maybe a future owner of an Elad.  When I you saw your post, I was wondering why you didn't weigh in on some of the repair & warranty concerns that have also been recently posted.  I now understand that you are only recently into your position.  Your addition should be a positive move for Elad.  Thanx for your response.  73 Bob W8RMV

Ciao Alberto.  I received an email this morning stating that I was removed from the ELAD forum mailings due to marking an email as spam.  I did not mark ANY ELAD emails as spam.  It must be automatic from my mail server.  I did request resuming emails from this forum.

Today I was told that I was unsubscribed from the group.
I did not mark messages as spam. I think maybe some message ended in my spam-folder, I dont know.
But I did emptied my spam folder yesterday. Maybe Yahoo then reports it on my behalf?

... great and very much appreciated!

One should also add SDR-Console V3 of Simon Brown under "Alternative Software". I am using it for years with e.g. FDM-S2 and hope to use their USPs, like up to 24 independent tuners within the HF bandwidth, also with upcoming FDM-S3.

Welcome to Elad,

This exciting because so many hams are just learning about SDR radios.  

I am looking forward to learning from your book, since I am far from knowing much about SDR and their uses. 

Whenever you get a chance please visit my QRZ page and take a look at what I have done with my Elad and SDR Station. 

I love my Elad and would love to be able to use it to its full extent. The system /shack I have established is nothing short of a dream for me. I consistently get great audio transmit responses, which I attribute to both the Elad and the added audio components. 

People are always asking me what Flex radio are you using when I make a contact.  I tell the my SDR is an Elad. The immediate response “what’s an Elad?  I love to tell them about it.  I look forward to learning from you and what you can teach me and others about our state of the art ”Toy” and how best use it.  

Appliance operators like myself still have a lot to learn. 

Thanks and I hope to
Speak to you soon.  I’m an self proclaimed advocate regarding  my Elad to my clubs,  San Diego DX Club and the El Cajon.   

Welcome

Hi Bob,

I've just started with Elad, but i have a long radio history and have been using SDR's for many years from soft rocks and up, so there are many changes coming, haven't had a chance to change my qrz page and others yet...I run several FB groups, one for the FTdx3000 and also the unofficial SDRPlay group.

I'm joining Franco to do support and also promotion of the Elad product range.

Re: Some comparisons (inc S3)

Paul,
This is my first post here & trying to understand the lay of the land, so to speak.
Based on your post, you provide technical support for Elad.  Yet when I look at your QRZ page, you do not own or operate any Elad products.
But you own a lot of other stuff & promote the FTdx3000 FB site an no mention of Elad whatsoever.  I am confused by this.
Maybe you can clarify.
Thanx - Bob W8RMV

an electric fence should be possible to eliminate in software.

Re: SW2 waterfall lines

Neil Smith G4DBN
 

I have electric fences as well, but those bursts are regular and very sharp.  Vitor said other radios did not see this, so it is something specific to the Elad.  Any sign of a PK indication on the DUOr itself?  Does the S meter jump at the same time?  Do you get a noise on the DUOr speaker/earphones as well as in SW2?

If it is still there with the attenuator in place, it is unlikely to be overload from a MW BC station.

In the 6144kHz mode, does the whole of the spectrum pulse up like in standalone, or is there a shape to it?  Does it cover only certain frequencies?  Does it make any difference at all if the LPF is enabled?  How about if AGC is turned off? Any differences?  If you disconnect all USB cables and run the radio standalone, do you still get the noise bursts?

How about with the USBs connected, but SW2 not running?

Can you try running SW2 on a different PC?

Have you tried a different power supply?

Sorry to be so full of questions but no answers!

Vitor,

you are referring to the jumps of the baseline of spectrum and spectrogram, right?
It seems to be worst on low frequencies. Do you have a strong and nearby mediumwave station? You could check with a second receiver, tuned to the mediumwave range, if the jumps are related to the modulation of a certain signal.

Hello all,

Does anyone have an idea why this appends?
It started a few months ago but sometimes it really gets worst, like in the linked video here: https://drive.google.com
I've shut the house power down and ran the rig on batteries, with the same results. I live in the countryside so no other interference around (no electric fences around neither).
It spreads until around 30 meters and during the day is less worst.
Firmware and software are updated.

This phenomena doesn't append at all using another SDR receiver (Airspy HF+ & SDR#).

Does anyone has ever experienced this before?
Could it be related to my DUOr receiver or the SW2 software?

Thanks
Vitor
