Re: #hardware SMA Connector Replacement on Airspy R2 #hardware

Damaged? Explain....
If it’s just loose, you can solder it back onto the circuit board, assuming you have a quality pencil soldering iron.
My Discovery SMA connector broke free from the board and had to be re-soldered.

Perhaps you could check the soldering on the printed circuit board to see if there are any opens.  If you go on a electronics distributor website, you can possibly find your part. IE

Hello folks,

I recently inherited a fully functional Airspy R2 with a critically damaged SMA connector. What connector would work to replace the current one with? I would rather appreciate being able to keep the current case rather than just bodging something else in.

Thanks,
Thomas

Re: Firmware - which batch I have? #firmware #airspydiscovery

Fire up SDR# and when it reads the radio, it will be in the upper left.
You do not want to use the CD as I recall!

From the website:
https://airspy.com/airspy-hf-discovery/

Firmware Updates

Search the posts, there's a thread about which one to use and not to use.

Firmware - which batch I have? #firmware #airspydiscovery

jmceara@...
 

How do I know which batch I have?
I'm looking for upgrade my HF Discovery....it's running firmware 3.0.0-BB and I see two new firmwares available.... 3.0.6-BB and CD....I think I have first batch (BB), but how can I be sure? Opening device and looking board?

If you don't want the bandwidth changed to what is in the bandplan leave that box unchecked.

OK, so outside of the SDR#. The file was the "factory version", no alterations have been made.

You've pointed me in the right direction: I've unchecked the box, then checked it again and... problem solved! It really seems a software glitch to me.

Thank you for your help!


Re: SDR# Freq Mgr And eibi ? #sdrsharp

Yes, the Data Tools Wizard that is installed with Freq Mgr can import Aoki, Eibi, and several others.  Take a look at it.  Thanks for using my software.

Hi 
Trying to find a way to annotate automatically what the station freq peaks showing in the Spectrum in SDR# are. 

CSVULB can’t. 

FreqMgr can, apparently when used with SDR#. 

CONSOLE has the ability to show them. 
Nice very useful feature.

I'll second Patrick's comment.  With CSVUserlistBrowser, not only do you have access to Eibi, but Aoki and HFCC.  Really can't ask for much more than that.

Is there a way to import a full database, like eibi e.g., directly into

Another good option is the Frequency Manager Suite by Jeff Knapp. No display issues if you select Windows 7 or Windows 8 themes.

Hi Bob,

Yes, the spectro area can display the stations you have in your memory banks.
Download "frequency manager" plugin by Vasili (http://rtl-sdr.ru/)
Note : there are issues if you use a dark theme, except Visual Studio 2012 (white characters on a white background ... not that easy to read). About 4 months ago, Vasili was about to release an update to fix this problem.

Hi,

Finally pretty much up to speed with SDR#.
Terrific program; really enjoying.
Thanks everyone for all the help.

Have noticed all the plug-ins that are also available.
Couldn't find the one I would really like, so instead of assuming
there is not one, thought I'd just ask.

Is there a plug-in that will put Markers down for the signal peaks showing in the Spectrum ?

In other words, have the program go to some loaded database, and correlating the peak frequency with the database,
and showing, with text, the stations on the Spectrum with a (vertical) line to the frequency peaks ?

CDR CONSOLE has this, and it's really "nice".

Anything similar in SDR# ?  Contemplated ?

Re: Transmitter fingerprinting, has someone done it #fingerprinting

Mike Naruta AA8K
 

That's an interesting source Denny.

One of our plastics injection molding plants was using corona discharge treatment on polypropylene for better adhesion. That played havoc with the shop floor wireless.

One of our most challenging t-hunts was when the fox was hiding at the rear of a small mall. He sat inside of an empty semi trailer with the rear doors open. His Yagi was pointed out at the power distribution line that ran parallel to the main road.

You would pick up a strong signal from the main road pointed at the small mall. When you drove over to the mall, weak and many peaks and nodes off of the power lines indicating the opposite direction.

Then there was the fox who hid at a service station with his car up on the rack and a magnetic mount antenna on the bottom of the rack.

And the time a t-hunter almost stepped on the fox (me) lying in a field.

And... but I digress.


BTW, I'm e-mailing this at 22:02 EDST. You can see how long it takes Comcast to mail it.
