There really is something to be said for always on desktop computers set to NEVER hibernate, NEVER sleep, and NEVER turn off the display(s). Of course, this is completely the opposite of the politically correct Windows defaults.

Updates will sometimes change the power settings, particularly for ethernet and USB.  If the device's USB port gets turned off because of a power setting, it may "disappear".  It's worth a check in Device Manager settings for each USB device you connect.

Re: How to use the 10MHz External Reference Input on Airspy R2?

Paul Cianciolo
 

That’s the same way for SDRplay works.

The radio needs to be powered up for the reference to take affect.

I think once its locked to the internal source it won’t go looking for the reference.

 

In the old days I remember some of the HP test gear would automatically  grab the 10 MHz Ref. when ever it was present

Simply feeding the 3.3V 10MHz reference signal into the MCX connector doesn't seem to have any effect (I have a 1 GHz rubidium-controlled source going into the Airspy's RF input).

I haven't found any setting in SDR# or any stand-alone software that tells the Airspy R2 to use the external frequency reference, or the actual frequency of the reference clock (since according to its brochure it can accept 10-100 MHz references)

Has anyone figured out how to use this feature?

Hi, I've had similar trouble with drivers and crashes and locking up. I then plugged a USB voltage checker and noticed a voltage drop. So I tried using a powered USB hub. Hay presto, no problems so far! This might work for you!

Re: Crazy QRM

Kriss Kliegle
 

"I started to see if in-fact some of my household electronics were the cause so I turned everything off"
To fully test this theory (emanating from within your QTH), one needs to kill the power, phone line, internet line where it enters.
Appliances that use remote controls are still 'on' when 'off', awaiting the next press of the 'ON' button in the remote. Don't forget
to force any UPS's into the OFF mode once the power is removed.

If you can find somebody with a small, battery powered HF RXR, i.e. Yaesu FT817 or similar, you can use it as a sniffer with a short antenna
to sweep the various wires in the QTH and outside too. Having the small rig is easier to handle versus walking around with a laptop with an SDR and antenna attached around the QTH.

Hi guys so for the first time I decided to hook up one of my R2's to have a peek at the 10/11m spectrum after suffering horrid QRM ever since I moved into the POS house and to my horror this is what I was presented with (see huge image...).


I started to see if in-fact some of my household electronics were the cause so I turned everything off (apart from the machine that was running the Airspy) which yielded no change, So then I put the Chicken Box in the car on a mag mount and turned off the machine running the R2 which also changed nothing as on the Chicken Box's meter it was a solid +9 of QRM.

 

The QRM starts around 20MHz and ends around the 40Mhz mark which is a crazy amount of BW so basically rendering my usage of 10, 12 and 15 meters operation useless, Can anybody tell from the screenshot what this QRM could be? As you can see it most prevalent in the C.B band around 26.500.

Re: Weird SpyServer Problem ? #spyserver

Thanks JDOW I will try that, perhaps it could be someone using the SpyServer and their copy of SDR# not releasing it properly.

I tried using the Task Scheduler in Win10 to reboot the computer and restart SpyServer, but for some reason, there is a permissions issue running the SpyServer this way and it won't read the config file.

I made an app to watch the USB stack and power to make sure it is not Windows 10 screwing with them.

Yes, I get that too. You can fix it by clicking the 1MHz digit up 2 or 3 MHz and then back down before exiting from SDR#. But shouldn't have to do that :(

No, I don't believe that just it being an RTL-SDR dongle is the problem as last night I found to SpyServers on the SpyServer browser which were using AirSpy HF+ which had the same problem. However, today they are working fine.

Hi,

Same here with spyserver on raspberry pi 3, raspbian buster and rtf-sdr v3.
Restart spyserver dont solve the problem, I have a crontab to reboot every hour.

I have been successfully running SpyServer on my Win10 64 bit computer with no problems for the past couple of months with ONE EXCEPTION.

Sometimes (seemingly random) the when I connect to the spy server from any device, everything seems to be working properly EXCEPT that the SNR level is always max, the spectrum trace is always pegged and there is no audio of any type. nor does any setting change in the SDR# app make any difference.

Here is what SDR# looks like when this happens...

I have played with the settings in SpyServer, still happens. Nothing has changed on Windows. I have tried to host the server on three different machines, with two different SDR dongles and the same thing happens.  Am I doing something wrong or does anyone have any info on this problem? 

I have also noticed this same problem when connecting to other peoples SpyServers in some cases. So I am assuming it is not just me that has this problem.  

The only thing that seems to correct the problem is a restart of the computer that is hosting the SpyServer (sometimes) OR to remove and re-insert the SDR dongle into a DIFFERENT USB port, however, it still might randomly start doing it again...


Any help would be much appreciated.

Yesterday I resurrected my SDR dongle and installed SDR# software today.

What is the best plug-in for inputing several frequencies and rapidly scanning them within SDR#?

Thanks,
