SDR# Community package

Hello all.

Can someone who has downloaded the new SDR# community package with plugins, please tell me, are the plugins complete and installed, or do you have to add them in youself?

I am not computer savvy I'm afraid, but I'm trying.

Many thanks for any help.
Jim.

Is it my old age?

Hello All. Could someone tell me please, does rtl-sdr.com sell 137.5 MHZ LNA's I went to the store but came away more confused than when I went in. Okay, I'm coming up 80yrs of age very quickly but I'm darned if I could find one (for NOAA/Meteor Sats). Any help would be really appreciated. Regards.

I am extremely desperate for help, please. I am and have been for 18 months now, downloading the NOAA and Meteor satellites. I've never had any trouble, thank goodness as I'm not a real technical person and at 76 yrs of age time has passed me by for any sophisticated learning. My problem: Out of no-...

Shortly after you wrote your reply I did what you explained and the result was outstanding. I happened to run into another person who helped me. Now, a very fine gentleman ...
