SDR-Console V3 Preview Updated to Support the SDRplay RSP2

Recently Jon from the SDRplay team wrote in to let us know that SDR-Console V3 (preview version) has just been updated and it now supports the RSP2. The RSP2 is the successor to the popular RSP1 software defined radio. It has improved filtering, more input ports, improved LNA, and just overall improved performance. See our initial RSP2 review here. They write:

Many thanks to Simon Brown for updating SDR-Console V3 Preview to fully support both the RSP1 and the RSP2- you can download the software from http://sdr-radio.com/v3_preview_downloads (be sure to click on the software link under where it says ‘Downloads’ unless you want to download the software from the advertisers who support Simon’s work!)

As new YouTube demo videos of SDR-Console V3 in action become available, we will add them to the playlists on our YouTube Channel: www.youtube.com/c/SDRplayRSP

The RSP2 now supports its native SDRUno software, HDSDR through an extIO module, CubicSDR and now SDR-Console V3.

Decoding 2x AIS Channels with SDR Console, AISMon and OpenCPN

YouTube user k2nccvids has posted a video showing him decoding and plotting both AIS channels simultaneously on a Windows PC with free software. To do this he uses SDR Console and two AISMon instances. SDR Console is a general purpose SDR GUI that supports the RTL-SDR. One of it’s major advantages over other SDR software is that it can tune to multiple signals in the same swath of tuned bandwidth simultaneously and output their audio to different virtual audio cables.

k2nccvids used two AISMon instances, each one connected to a separate virtual audio cable outputting AIS audio from SDR Console. He set AISMon to output decoded UDP packets on two different ports. Then he created two UDP listeners in OpenCPN for plotting, one for each port.
