Re: Testers needed for Airspy HF+

I think I see some unexpected instability(?) with low and high threshold settings ...
see video, note waterfall variations for settings AGC on/off , Threshold hi/low.

With the signals shown, best SNR results were achieved with manual Attenuation of 36dB.

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?

Cheers, Jaap

Ок. I have launched a new system and default settings for two versions. The behavior of the spectroscope in 1645 is still much better.

I use SDR# for Spyserver on the Raspberry and celebrates the worst behavior of the spectrum in the latest revision of the program. Watch video. In version 1645 the spectroscope is much more alive than that in 1647-1649. Hope this will help you for corrections.
How do you expect anyone to reproduce your custom configuration using a video?

Always recheck your steps to reproduce on a new system with the default configuration

Fixed in 1647. Windows decided that when a window is reduced, its size is zero - and the size is used to determine the RBW.

That's an understatement if I ever heard one !    I'm glad you see it that way.    I just joined this list in the past week, and the number of people posting questions that have been asked/answered/documented is astounding.   If you threw Linux into the mix, there'd be no end to the questions by those who do not use the Search facility.

HF+ on FM with CSVUserList : a GREAT combo #airspyhfplus #mediumwave #shortwave #swl

Patrick
 

Hi there !

You should consider  CSVUserList if you're a MW / FM DX'er or a shortwave enthusiast. Very easy to set up and run.
It provides amazing features. This clip does not show how it works but simply gives an overview of its interface close to SDR#. 
For the curious, have a look HERE

I prefer to be honest and brutal than lying to you. The "nice to have" GUI things no longer make it to my ever expanding to do list. Here are the top 3 priorities today:
1. Core functionality: DSP and Hardware

If you enjoy today using the HF+ to do fantastic things, it's thanks to this specific order.

SDR# GUI Improvement Suggestions

Ian DXer
 
Edited

The following are a couple of SDR# GUI improvement suggestions that I'd like to refer to Yousef Clone #02, or if all else fails Yousef when he has some time :-)

1. For the Volume Slider control: From somewhere around the 50dB position through to the upper most right (60dB presently) it would be advantageous to have a pale red
colour embedded within the slider track to indicate to NEW USERS that audio distortion might be experienced within this range (re previous discussions on the audio distortion)

2.  For the slider controls on the far right of the screen; i.e. controls: Zoom, Contrast, Range & Offset. I'd like to make the following suggestions:-
 a) I have a preference to have the label at the bottom of the slider control (please read on).
 b) Each label needs to be located closer to the slider control to avoid confusion as to which label is associated with what slider (above vs below).
The present positioning of the label equally midway between the upper & lower slider  creates confusion (I'm sure I'm not the only one).
 c) In relation to points a) & b) above. I believe creating an indent depression behind each slider control within which the slider markings, slider button & label would resolve the problem.
Doing the indent GUI changes neatly might intrude a little into the FFT display width, but it would make for a more user friendly experience with SDR#.

Implementation of the above suggestions would improve my experience & hopefully others (also maybe reduce Yousef's time answering future audio distortion enquiries, due to settings)

Thanks for your time.

Cheers.
