Re: SDR# Problems #hardware #sdrsharp

I have several, actually.

First, with v3.0 I can't get the program to properly recognize my RTL-SDR that has both HF and VHF/UHF capability It works fine with v2.0.

Second, there is a tone on top of my input. It follows me when I tune so it is there regardless of frequency. It is either in the com port or the RTL-SDR, I have no clue which.

ANY assistance would be greatly appreciated.

================================

Fred,

I think you have the wrong group, as the group is for Airspy hardware and SDR# software.

V2 and V3 likely relate to SDR Console:
https://SDR-Radio.groups.io/g/main

so I suggest you ask there.

Re: SpectrumSpy with Spyverter?

Anders J. Ørts
 

Hi Henry,
Thanks for your comments.
I wasn't aware of the relationship you mention. Not that it matters much, just curious: If I had wanted the same bandwidth on 20m, I should have used a thinner wire here, I suppose. Or a thicker on 40m.
Is that correct?
Regards
Anders


Re: SpectrumSpy with Spyverter?

Hi Anders,

 

You have just shown for yourself, although you were not looking for it, the relationship between wire-thickness, antenna band-width and frequency.

 

It would be interesting to see the cheapest and or easiest DIY options for the noise source and the bridge. I have seen numerous such circuits over the years but did not take in the detail.

 

Tak

Henry

Hello Phil,

I have tested the Airspy Spyverter under Debian X86 64-bit Linux Stretch and

The UDOO team is pleased to announce that the UDOO X86 family of maker
boards are now available to purchase directly from their shop, after
successfully shipping over five-thousand boards. The crowdfunded
open-spec board, combining the computational power of a Quad-Core
64-bit Intel® microprocessor, and the flexibility of the famous
Arduino prototyping platform, in using a Intel® Curie™ Arduino™
101-compatible microcontroller to connect to the physical world.

This year’s ‘Hacker Board Survey’ undertaken by Linux.com and
LinuxGizmos, revealed much greater interest in x86-based boards, with
the UDOO X86 already achieving the top position in this segment.
By utilising the x86 ecosystem, the board is capable of running
Windows, Android and Linux, including Ubuntu 17.04, and the recently
released Debian 9 “Stretch”. Combining this with the extensive board
documentation, schematics, and a large supportive community—Users can
quickly get started on their applications and projects.

The application scenarios for UDOO X86 vary from pure multimedia,
allowing for example to create a Kodi media system, to desktop
replacement and workstation purposes, or even as a game-streaming
machine and retrogaming, for example, Retropie.
With an onboard Arduino UNO pin compatible header, the shield options
are endless, providing the user with an easy to follow approach of
adding features, from a motor shield to an Arduino Touchscreen.

The board contains an integrated Intel GPU able to drive up to three
4K screens at the same time, supporting DirectX 12, OpenGL 4.4, and
OpenCL 2.0, with hardware decoding of HEVC Main, and H.264 videos.
It can also boot from everywhere and gives freedom of expansion and
storage, with several options like SATA, SSD, Micro SD, and embedded
eMMC. The microcontroller is capable of powering on and off the board.
UDOO X86 comes in four models – Basic, Advanced, Advanced Plus and

The UDOO team is pleased to announce that the UDOO X86 family of maker
boards are now available to purchase directly from their shop, after
successfully shipping over five-thousand boards. The crowdfunded
open-spec board, combining the computational power of a Quad-Core
64-bit Intel® microprocessor, and the flexibility of the famous
Arduino prototyping platform, in using a Intel® Curie™ Arduino™
101-compatible microcontroller to connect to the physical world.

This year’s ‘Hacker Board Survey’ undertaken by Linux.com and
LinuxGizmos, revealed much greater interest in x86-based boards, with
the UDOO X86 already achieving the top position in this segment.
By utilising the x86 ecosystem, the board is capable of running
Windows, Android and Linux, including Ubuntu 17.04, and the recently
released Debian 9 “Stretch”. Combining this with the extensive board
documentation, schematics, and a large supportive community—Users can
quickly get started on their applications and projects.

The application scenarios for UDOO X86 vary from pure multimedia,
allowing for example to create a Kodi media system, to desktop
replacement and workstation purposes, or even as a game-streaming
machine and retrogaming, for example, Retropie.
With an onboard Arduino UNO pin compatible header, the shield options
are endless, providing the user with an easy to follow approach of
adding features, from a motor shield to an Arduino Touchscreen.

The board contains an integrated Intel GPU able to drive up to three
4K screens at the same time, supporting DirectX 12, OpenGL 4.4, and
OpenCL 2.0, with hardware decoding of HEVC Main, and H.264 videos.
It can also boot from everywhere and gives freedom of expansion and
storage, with several options like SATA, SSD, Micro SD, and embedded
eMMC. The microcontroller is capable of powering on and off the board.
UDOO X86 comes in four models – Basic, Advanced, Advanced Plus and
Ultra – all based on the Intel x86 64-bit Quad Core Braswell range of
processors.

UDOO X86 Basic, with 2 GB of RAM, costs $125, while the most powerful
variant, UDOO X86 ULTRA, based on an Intel Pentium N3710 with 8 GB of
RAM and up to 2.56 GHz CPU, is $267.

from gaming to video streaming, from graphical editors to professional
development platforms, plus all the software or the Arduino™ 101
world, including all the sketches, libraries and the official Arduino™
101 IDE.

You won’t ever worry about lack of drivers or stuff like that. This is
a true next-generation computer.

It is based on Quad Core 64-bit new-generation x86 processors made by
Intel®, designed for the PC domain. Prodigious processors concentrated
in 14 nm, with an amount of energy consumption of 5 or 6 Watt.

The board can be powered by a DC-jack with a standard 5.5mm/2.1mm

Re: Airspy HF+ Works!

Yes,

 

Two SMA – one for HF, one for VHF.

Thanks for the update, Simon. A passband of 640 kHz is just fine for me. For ferreting out HF utility stations with my Cloud-IQs, I normally use 700 kHz. I've tried larger chunks, up to 1MHz, but even on a 28" 4K monitor, the signals on the spectral display are just too small for my eyes. I'll also be very interested in seeing how well the AirSpy HF+ handles strong signals.

One question for you, or really, anybody in the group. I looked through the HF+ documentation for the antenna connector type, but couldn't find anything, or more likely, just missed it. Are they SMA connectors?

Hi,

 

Maximum usable is 550kHz or so, essentially 80% +/- of 768kHz. Could be a bit more…

Re: airspy hf+ with linux

prog
 

Hi Alex, Thanks for implementing the support. I will dispatch more hardware as it is produced. It's coming!


Re: airspy hf+ with linux

Alexandru Csete
 

Hi Ian,

Technically, the Airspy HF+ is already supported in Gqrx because I implemented the gr-osmosdr backend already in July:
https://github.com/csete/gr-osmosdr-gqrx/commit/8cd3a5f500f62d7478e91ba4c8403aea788387c7

When somebody gets a chance to test with real hardware and confirm that it works, I will include the patch in a release, and submit it for inclusion in the official gr-osmosdr repository.

Then, you never know what else may turn up in the coming months. I heard rumors that Santa will be very generous to Linux SDR users this year :)

Re: HF+

claudio36itus
 

Hi Simon

just a quick question about HF+ as you already tested this unit...do you think that the HF + can be compared for performance to an Elad Fdm 2 or even a Perseus?
What do you think about the general performance?

Thanks a million

Claudio 


Re: HF+

claudio36itus
 

Hi Guys!

I hope that the HF + will be available soon for sale as waited for a long time!
Does anyone know roughly when they will start the pre orders? before Xmas? lol ;-)
I looking very forward to order mine! but at same time I do not want another 2/3 months

Sorry ...;-)

Re: Mini (And silent) PC for Airspy R2 Under Windows (7 or 10)

Jos Mols <jos.mols2@...>
 

Hi Ruben
I use MINIX Z83-4 as dedicated SDR PC. Tested with HPSDR & SDR Console version 2 and version 3. Using Elad FDM S2.
Works very well.
Windos 10, 4 G mem, quad core, no fans, 12V supply.
Running SDR-Console loads COU to 30%. Power consumption is then 6Watts including feeding the Elad.

This time DHL has thrown away my HF+ in the wild then they texted me (not even called) to go find it.
