If an HTML message consisting just of an "Yes" occupies tens of kB, then it was composed with a rotten
email agent... maybe Outlook or some other Micro$oft's disgusting applications...

Software snippets for SDR# #sdrsharp

prog
 

I uploaded a few code snippets for plugin developers and people who want to write their own SpyServer client.

Re: SpyVerter R2 - have you upgraded?

prog
 

The lower LO leakage also allows you to push the gain higher without overloading the front end, especially near DC (120 MHz).

I'm not sure, perhaps when more than one RTL-SDR is connected you get each device listed, but it's def not the case for more than one Airspy R2. I find it strange that this function is not present especially given the fact that the Airspy and SDR# are from the same developer.. one would think that somebody with 2 or 3 .. or 50 (sic!) etc. Airspys would be embraced :).

That's more than proper. Thank you!

On another paw do consider that plain text malware is a lot harder to spread than is HTML malware. It requires a dumb or very distracted email reader.

SpyVerter R2 - have you upgraded?

David J Taylor
 

Just ordered a SpyVerter R2. Looking forward to be enhanced frequency stability, especially for reception at 77.5, 60 and even 16 kHz. Have others upgraded?

True, but specific for SDR#, this one could be for Airspy hardware.

Andrea Montefusco IW0HDV
====================================

As the groups have merged, I suggest it would be best to add AirSpy content to the existing SDR# Wiki rather than making the users look in two different places. I've added you as a writer to:

http://sdrsharp.pbworks.com

and look forward to your input.

"GB of e-mail don't matter" - perhaps if you never archive mails,
My Thunderbird profile is 2.2GB.
Going back 10 years, now that IS crazy! (Not too many attachments, many were stripped out.)
I store old messages in separate folders which, I assume are not used during normal operation of the program.

Yes, there already /is/ a Wiki:

Do we really need duplication?  Is there any control over Wiki author permissions on the new Wiki?

Re: Timing

Now, that reminds me, there is an option in the groups.io Subscription
- Membership - Advanced - No Attachnents
David,

At the above it tells you that you will get a link to the attachment.

On your message I see a footer including the helpful text:
Did Andrea use the web interface?


73 Alan G4ZFQ
==============================

So if messages are sent from the Web GUI, e-mail users are out of luck to see the message on the Web.

But that maximum attachment size of "0", and the promise to send a link sounds excellent. I'll enable that.

"GB of e-mail don't matter" - perhaps if you never archive mails, but if in business it may be a requirement that you keep e-mails for at least a certain length of time, and that may apply to several group members. Not to mention that having thousands of e-mails will inevitably show down your e-mail program. Large downloads may be fine when at home, but what about when you need to pay for every bytes, such as users at sea?

Typefaces and various font sizes should be under the control of the reader, as they may have particular vision issues making small fonts illegible, and red/green colour differences impossible to see.

David,

Does your email program not have the "Delete Attachment" facility? Although with the enormous sizes of drives these days a few GB hardly gets noticed:-)

But again, I feel that any attachment should be small, there are most likely many with slow or expensive connections.

Thanks, Alan.

Well if that works it would be a good start. Except....

which I trust would allow me to see attachments if I wish, but this helpful footer is missing from Andrea's message! Why? I'll see if it appears on my reply.

I'll monitor for a while, as I am still learning how the new service behaves.

Yes, and even using the web gui, though it is not my preferred way to interaction.
I have to admit that is quite usable on tablet.
It seems to me a good improvement when compared with the old Yahoo.
We will see if it is going to stay stable and with a good performance level.
