Re: LaRaWAN Capture

Is the goal to simply see if and how often it transmits? You could probably just create a time-lapse of screenshots with a program like Chronolapse. If you want to record the actual signal for later investigation and demod, you'll need to do a baseband IQ recording as explained before. Just make sur...

Re: LaRaWAN Capture

You can definitely see Lorawan signals on the spectrum, assuming you do have reception of them. But why are you recording to Audacity? You probably want to make an IQ baseband recording if you are waiting for signals to appear while you are not watching the screen. You can do that with the included ...

Using the ADSB LNA will improve upon the FlightAware dongle if there is a moderate to long length of feedline between your antenna and receiver. If you're setup is Antenna -> Long Feedline -> Receiver, then the V3 + LNA will probably work best, assuming you can get the LNA close to the antenna. Opti...

Re: RTL-SDR not working-no device selected and no device availaable

Did you run install-rtlsdr.bat, and can you confirm that the rtlsdr.dll file was downloaded into the SDR# folder?
