Re: Logger32 + FTdx-5000 + SDR Panadapter
Darren Collins (G0TSM)
I have an FTDX5000, LP-Pan 2 + Soundcard + NaP3/CW Skimmer. The CAT from the rig is shared (including to/from Logger32) via LPBridge.
If you just want to try a panadapter get one of those cheap SDRs
you find on eBay/Amazon and feed it from the IF out on the back of
the FTDX5000. You tune the SDR to 9MHz and you get a 'reversed
display' ie if you are Rxing to USByou need to tune the SDR to
LSB, well thats what I found.
SDR# (SDR Sharp) supports the cheap RTL-SDR USB devices and you
can buy these with an HF down-converter. They're not very
sensitive but they give you an idea of what you can see. Just
don't buy an VHF only version.
I hardly use the NaP3 visual display expect during an SSB contest
or looking at interference, but I use CW Skimmer all the time..
