Re: Need help with new HF/VHF-UHF dongle

What business? Where can I find this silver v3 dongle? This 2nd replacement dongle is going into the box of stuff, along with the 1st HF/VHF-UHF dongle to be sold at the Spokane hamfest. For what ever I can get out of them. I have the ok from my apt manager to put back up my Antennas after the face ...

Re: Need help with new HF/VHF-UHF dongle

Tim. The RST on 105.3mhz is now a solid 5 by 9. The HF side is working down to 24mhz. On 28.205mhz I am faintly hearing a local 10 meter CW beacon even with the crummy little mag mount antenna that came with it. The beacon's RST is about 4 by 3. On the RCI-2950 with a 102" wipe in my SUV the 10 mete...

question about HDSDR

In HDSDR there is 2 frequency bars. 1 is marked "LO a" the other is marked "tune". Why is that?
Also when I click on "bandwidth" it opens up the "sampling rate" window?

Re: Need help with new HF/VHF-UHF dongle

Tim the answer (about the bandwidth filter) hit me like a ton of bricks this morning when I woke up. That fix's that. But I still can't get SDRSharp to start up. I click on sdrsharp.exe, I don't know what happened just now when I fired up the laptop, then clicked on sdrsharp.exe. SDRSharp came alive...

Need help with new HF/VHF-UHF dongle

I just got the replacement dongle in the mail today for the "Full Band UV HF RTL-SDR 100KHz-1.7GHz Cable Tuner Receiver/R820T P7K5 + Antenna" that I got on eBay. The old one was hard wired to receive FM only. The VHF/UHF side worked fine but the HF side was worthless. Even if I had the tools to the ...

Re: re: getting SDRSharp running

Update. I finely found online users guides for HDSDR and SDR Console. It took a bit of doing. But I finely got both programs working 100% with the vhf/uhf dongle that I have now. It took a combo of what I had learned from messing with SDRSharp in the past and reading the users guides for HDSDR and S...

Re: getting SDRSharp running

I found the problem but I don't know how to fix it. The version of SDRSharp that I have will ONLY work on 32 bit. Not on Win 10 Home 64 bit that I am running on the Gateway laptop now. I have looked and so far I haven't found a 64 bit version of SDRSharp to download. HDSDR and SDR Console will work ...

re: getting SDRSharp running

It is a "Full Band UV HF RTL-SDR 100KHz-1.7GHz Cable Tuner Receiver/R820T P7K5". I am having trouble getting SDRSharp to st...

Re: re: just into a new (for me) apt

I got it up and running but I am going to need help in conf SDRSHarp for the best signal. Again I don't have my notes available. The dongle is now on an outside wire antenna thrown up in the tree. The coax comes in the window next to my window A/C unit. That was the other restriction. NO drilling ho...
