Newbie material on HF+
Pete Smith <n4zr@...>
Please pardon the extreme newbie questions - I bought an Airspy HF+ recently, intending to use it on the IF of my K3 for spectrum display. Of course, the K3 is off at Watsonville, so I've been experimenting, comparing the Airspy with a Red Pitaya and a QS1R.
From what I've seen I like SDR# a lot. Is there anywhere an SDR# manual specifically for the HF+? I keep running into things in the Quick Start that are not germane to my HF+, running the latest firmware.
Also, can anyone point me toward an
explanation of the dBFS scale used for signal strength with
the Airspy HF+? I've established that my
signal equates to 20 dBFS on SDR#, and its -33 dBM
(equivalent to 40 over 9) more than "pins the
meter" on SDR#. Is this normal?
