Re: I'm Sticking To 88-108 MHz FM Broadcast Band For Now

One more question. How do I move from one end of the spectrum to another in a timely manner, right now If I'm listening to CB then want to listen to VHF fire I have to actually drag my mouse across the screen like a hundred times to get there. Is there a better way to do this? Thanks in advance & en...

Re: I'm Sticking To 88-108 MHz FM Broadcast Band For Now

As usual you offer the best advice, thank you, just one more quickie, how can I watch the entire 88-108 MHz FM band spectrum which is a 20 MHz spread? Too much for my dongle? What would I need to upgrade to receive that much spectrum? Anything in the RTL store?

I'm Sticking To 88-108 MHz FM Broadcast Band For Now

Best Antenna Combinations?

I want to buy some more dongles with HF upconverters before I move up to the SDRPlay and Airspy/Spyverter combo & am wondering if the Austin Ferret for 30 MHz+ & the Apex 303WA-2 HF antennas would be suitable or would they be overkill for entry & mid level SDR? I'm running my dongle off a glass moun...

Re: New HDSDR Version 2.75

Couldn't get it going, I'll read all the accompanying tutorials & watch the videos again before reloading. Also sometimes the 3 if, af & audio windows on the bottom of the waterfall display don't come on when I turn the dongle off & on again, sometimes I just stop the dongle, minimize the screen & w...

New HDSDR Version 2.75

Happy New year all. I am already running the basic DVB-T+DAB+FM stick through this sites Quick Start Platform, so far I'm quite satisfied with the results, still learning. Is the new HDSDR Version 2.75 applicable to my dongle? Would I benefit my reception parameters using it & if so how do I downloa...

Anything New coming Down The SDR Pike?

Since wideband & HF box receivers have all been pretty much out of production except the new Alinco converted Ham radio DX-R8T & the way overpriced & long in the tooth AOR AR8600MKIIB & the die hard hold outs await the release of the Icom R8600 (which is a reboxed 7300) that's replacing the troubles...
