Carrier lock works differently in new versions.

WA1LGQ
 

Greetings gentlemen. Using carrier lock seems to work differently in version 1901 than in older versions. I use a HF+ Discovery remotely with spyserver to listen to amateur AM transmissions. Carrier lock with DSB or LSB or USB is working differently than in older versions 1854 or 1859 that I have installed on other Win10 computers. Here is what I am seeing in 1901. Tune in a station with carrier lock and it locks normally, that transmission stops, another station on a slightly different freq starts transmitting and the carrier does not lock. If I change the receive freq by any amount,  then it locks. Also sometimes, not always, after maybe 1 minute of being locked there appears a very low audio freq beat tone as if the freq changed slightly. Maybe the signal did changed freq, I don't know. It is certainly possible. But still there is no lockup. Older versions would automatically re-lock to the signals without any prompting. Is there something that I need to do to fix this? Or just don't use new versions?
Thanks!!!........Larry

Re: Re-Install

Ken Sejkora
 

Hello Tom,

As pointed out by in the reply from Roberto Cipriani, the Frequency Scanner plugin should automatically reinstall if you use the "SDR# with Community Plugins" installer on the Airspy website.

The original Frequency Scanner plugin had been provided by Vasili Beliakov.  It first appeared on Vasili's site back around 2015, but he did come up with an update on 13-Nov-2017.  Since then, it does not appear Vasili posted any updates on his [now deprecated] website.   However, a programmer called 'TheWraith' has taken (with Vasili's permission) several of Vasili's plugins and updated them to work with newer versions of SDRSharp.  The latest version provided by TheWraith is dated 18-Jan-2022, listed as Version 2.2  If you are interested in checking out any of the updated plugins provided by TheWraith, you can find them at this URL:
https://mega.nz/folder/WOhgiYjB#_V0Fr0eu3UxFWXzytAZsIA

Don't go the the "Date Added" in the last column.  Several of the plugins have been updated after those displayed dates.  It is best to open the folder for each plugin, and look at the date associated with the ZIP file for each plugin.

Good luck, and have a great day.

Point to https://airspy.com/download/ and download the "SDR# with Community Plugins”
It install all the necessary.

Sorry its an age thing. Couple of months back on starting Airspy my computer blew a gasket and told me that it was seriously infected with a virus or even viruses. It closed down on me. Despite mkuch use of "Bitdefender" and eventually telling me it was clean, Airspy just refuses to start. Now with another PC I've forgotten when to find the software. I was using V1762 which I found to be stable and satidfactory for my uses. I also need "frequency scanner". Can some kind soul point me in the right direction to relocate the software please.

Re: ver 1905 plug in

Scott Miller
 

Hello, I recently upgraded to version 1905 from 1901.

In the plug in's I can not find the plug in

Frequency Scanner Channel Analyzer

I have used this in the past to lock out frequencies during searches.

I do not see this plug in listed on the website plug in list.

Can anyone advise where it went or if it is built in with a different plug in?

Thank you
Scott


Re: Airspy Mini: Cannot validate the calibration #hardware

jdow
 

866.71237 - 866.7125 = 0.00013 MHz = 130 Hz

130 Hz at 866.4 MHz is (almost exactly) 0.15 ppm (approximately 1.4999206772718750450697318891789e-7) I suspect there is no way jmiles could tune it closer in any meaningful way given it's a frequency synthesizer based correction and they tend to have finite (and often depressingly large) step sizes. It's rare applications that require step sizes in small numbers of parts in 10^13th. (GPS - jdow did it.)

{o.o}  Just sayin' - I did my math this time. {^_-}

I wonder if jmiles is still around. He sent a nastygram and somebody took it off the list - perhaps him with it. I don't know if it was directed towards me or Youssef.

Re: Airspy Mini: Cannot validate the calibration #hardware

You can do somewhat better if the reference in the AirSpy is locked to GPS. Then you have internal frequency synthesizer accuracy to deal with.

Anyway, getting ready to start using mine here shortly. Had to buy a broad band antenna (a Discone) and all I need do is put it up. That’s for the R2 and spyverter. The discovery I am going to experiment with using several old microphone elements and speaker elements as low frequency antennas and see what I hear. At 0.15 ppm, the tolerance is so close as to not make any difference anywhere.

Re: #sdrsharp Zoom control #sdrsharp

Hi Paolo,

SDR# very, very rarely had significant changes to related to its look, feel and behaviour. Most of versions you see released include incremental changes. 

When a significant feature is available, the designer and hard-core users often provide explanations here and over YouTube 

Speaking of... I can't stress enough how useful searching the past messages can be. Quite a number of times, searching old messages solved questions I had, with no need to increase the noise floor hihihihi.

Rest assured the manual published there is good for several years (past and future) of SDR# versions. No need to make things complicated.

Do not mess with it. You are as close as is reasonably possible with the AirSpy 1/2 ppm TCXOs. You are asking to correct a 0.15 ppm error. If you mess with it you will likely only make it worse.
