Re: Updated my hf+ today

Oh!  The two displays are quite different, aren't they?  So the Zoom FFT display is the one to use?

Oops!  No I didn't!  I must have missed that.  I used the main display, and a procedure in an e-mail from back in January that I saved.

So, repeat, but use the zoom FFT display instead?

Thanks,

Thanks for reporting Ken. Did you calibrate using the Zoom FFT?

I did that with my HF+ on current FW/SDR#. What's the granularity
of the cal value? I think I got within ~0.3Hz at 10MHz.

BTW, It's amusing on MW to Zoom FFT and see 15 carriers on the
"busy" frequencies.

My HF+ is remote now at 150km from home.
If i could update from Linux i could try.

Re: Problem trying update last firmware Airspy HF+

It's correct for your PC to recognise it as a Bossa port - you've erased the firmware, so it's no longer an HF+ radio.  Just run flash.bat again and it should upload the new firmware, then unplug and replug it.
That's how it works on mine.

Regards,
Dave

That's the troubleshooting procedure for Airspy R2/Mini. Again, read the instructions. Do not improvise.

I'm eager to test this tomorrow. I'm on 1.3 and today for the first time I noticed some ugly AGC pumping on MW on the HF+.


Re: Testers needed for Airspy HF+

I am new to the HF+ but it seems to handle strong Shortwave signals without them showing up in the wrong places. I have been playing with your suggested AM bandwidth and looking at the IF at 10Hz to WWV and see if I can hone the Freq. Cal to a fine number. Takes a while for it to settle down. I am enjoying ALL your updates. Is there a tool to show EXT I/O to adjust Freq. cal. stand alone?

Keep up the great work. Cal...W1HHO

All the Best.

So, my Airspy HF+ is inoperative right now.

Suggestions are welcome!

Thanks Pete. That's very useful actually. AGC with Lower threshold seems to work good also. Can you post another similar video with the Preamp on?

I installed the FW update (without any problem at all).
So far I have done the usual MW/SW listening I normally do
without noting any regression. Haven't had a chance to torture
the HF+ with my e-probe but may get to that today. So far,
so good.

One thing that might count is that I did some MW listening
to a station with a very strong adjacent local. Typically
I'll switch to SSB in this case to avoid the high-frequency
modulation from the adjacent station. I can't say objectively,
and band conditions, etc., but it is possible that this
sounded better the bit I did last night.

Speed of the spectrum display in 1650 version OK. Thanks.

Running fine here 1650 version.
But still not mouse freq tunning on IF Spectrum like before.

Thanks!

Darn, just read the upgrade instructions only. Upgrade went flawless.

Is there anyone willing to share their experience with using the HF Preamp? What circumstances did you see improvement?
