Re: Recording longer files

Simon Brown
 

Pat,

 

Can you make a RF64 file available for me please? Any length will do, use Dropbox or similar. Zipped / compressed is also OK.

Hi Bjarne,

 

<< in SDR Console, be sure to check "3rd Party Recordings" in the Select Recording dialog box >>

This box is always ticke, the recordings made using SDR# default recording format are visible but not the WAV RF64 one.

Thus, I can not read it nor run the data file analyzer to check it.

Pat,

 

At the moment SDR Console doesn’t support RF64, it’s about time I bite the bullet and add this support.

Took the plunge and ordered an AirSpy mini.  Looking forward to see how it compares to my RSP1 for VHF/UHF.

Does his spyserver.config file have device_type set to RTL-SDR or Auto?
(device_sample_rate might do best set to 2400000, too.)

I got the impression he tried editing it at one time. That's why I am wondering.

You have already installed two fundamental 32-bit libraries (libc6:armhf and libstdc++6:armhf)
Do you also need to install additional 32-bit library for spyserver, I honestly don't know!
I'd check on the easy ones that were statically linked at build time first:
$ ldd spyserver
And if installing any missing 32-bit libraries did not solve the problem, then I'd see if there was any issue with any missing 32-bit dynamically loaded resources (e.g. libairspyhf.so, librtlsdr.so, libairspy.so )
You can use a debug tool like strace to find out which files in what directories the program is trying to access (there will be many misses as it searches through the entire library path, you learn what is important and what is irrelevant by using debug tools often enough).
$ strace -f ./spyserver
(or a quick check for library files only "strace -f ./spyserver 2>&1 | grep -i lib" or files that were attempted to be opened "strace -f ./spyserver 2>&1 | grep open" )
If any required library files were missing, I'd look for the package name that owns the missing library file.
e.g
$ sudo dpkg-query -S librtlsdr.so
And install the 32-bit version, e.g.
sudo apt-get install librtlsdr0:armhf
And then rinse and repeat for anything else that is missing. Oh and never expect any program to have any chance of work correctly when it is being debugging with strace, just run the program directly.
That would be how I would approach your problem.

S912 armlogic has cortex-A53 cores which are 64-bit as is your OS.

You have already installed two fundamental 32-bit libraries (libc6:armhf and libstdc++6:armhf)

Do you also need to install additional 32-bit library for spyserver, I honestly don't know!

$ ldd spyserver

Tried with a friends airspy AirspyOne device attached to the unit and default spyserver.config, same results unfortunately.
Any more suggestions much welcomed.

There are several standard extensions to the .wav format which allow essentially
unlimited recording. Why not use one or more of them?

Linrad uses a 64 bit file pointer while standard for .wav

Hi there,

A single recorded file (full 768 kHz BW) seems to be limited to 2 Go ; this
means the recording won't last more than about 12 minutes.

Is it possible to record a single file during 30 minutes or 1h or even more
? (still at 768 kHz BW of course).

Thanks
Pat

You need to use an Ext-IO file which will allow the HF+ to work with HDSDR.  You can download it here:


Note there is one for the regular Airspy and one for the HF+.  Download it and copy it into the folder on your computer where HDSDR resides.

I can run the KC9QLE SDR on HDSDR and the Airspy runs perfectly on SDR# (as does the KC9QLE SDR).

But HDSDR just won't recognise AirSpy.

I installed spyserver on my rasp for a test but do not want my ip on the spyserver directory . 

I changed in spyserver config   list_in_directory = 1   to list_in_directory = 0   but im still on the list. 

Do it go away after a time or do i have to mail someone to get my ip deleted from the spyserver directory list ?
