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...

re: just into a new (for me) apt

I just moved into a new apt in the sticks of West Richland. I now have a fenced yard with a very, very tall oak tree in it. Also I can now put up outside ham antennas. The only restriction is no permanent mounts, like a tower set in concrete. Anyways I am setting up RTL dongel on my Dell laptop. At ...

Re: trouble with setting up my dongle

By the way is there a newer digital dongle available? I have never have gotten this dongle to decode Benton county dispatch. I have the freq's. The voice is scrambled on 1 freq and the control pules are down a few khz's. The format I think is something like P-25. I don't remember exactly.

Re: trouble with setting up my dongle

Now it is working, now that the rtlsdr.dll is installed. Now all I need to do is fine tune the SDR software. And dongle will work better when I get my new window air conditioner installed next month and then stick the mag mount antennas on the outside part of the air conditioner. The dongle worked v...

Re: trouble with setting up my dongle

The rtlsdr.dll isn't in the SDR folder, I forgot to copy that off the CD. I have all the files and dir's saved to a CD. I did load RTL2832U from the USB list. The Dongle that I have is RTL2832U. Install rtlsdr.bat downloads all the files and dir's to a dir of my choosing, right? If so it is all on a...

Re: RTL Dongle - Stock Antenna

If your going to splice coax together 1st use heat shrink tubing rather then electrical tape. I find heat shrink tubing works better. And 2nd after you have soldered and covered the inter conductor with heat shrink. Then cover the inter conductor with a small peace of aluminum foil before soldering ...

Re: reinstalling the software for my rtl dongle

:oops: BINGO now SDRsharp works. I forgot to install the file "rtlsdr.dll" in the SDRsharp directory. It just hit me all of a sudden like a light bulb kicking on. So you can file this one away for the next person that has this problem. And you can ask them if the "rtlsdr.dll" file is installed. :D I...
