Hello from a new member to the group, owner of an Airspy HF+ Discovery, and slightly experienced Linux user.
I like using GQRX SDR radio software on Linux, but after installing in from the repository I did not get the option to use an Airspy radio.
Is there a preferred method of installing Airspy drivers on a Raspberry Pi4? I've been able to get the Pi4 running GQRX with the HF+ by following this method by G4WNC, Mike Richards: https://photobyte.org/running-spyserver-raspberry-pi-3/
Open a terminal session and enter: cd /home/pi
Enter: wget https://github.com/airspy/airspyhf/archive/master.zip
Now unzip the archive by entering: unzip master.zip
Change to the new directory: cd airspyhf-master
Make a new directory for the build: mkdir build
Change to the new directory: cd build
Make the driver with: cmake ../ -DINSTALL_UDEV_RULES=ON
Complete the make with: make
Move the installed files to the correct destination: sudo make install
- Rebuild the search path so the driver can be found: sudo ldconfig
What I've seen on the Airspy website seems to relate more to SpyServer operations.
Also, this webpage is very helpful installing other ham radio related programs:
