Re: Does disconnecting an RTL-SDR from PC while working cause hardware fault?

There shouldn't be any issues with disconnecting it whenever. Are you sure that you're in direct sampling mode in SDRuno?

Re: RTL-SDR Blog Wideband LNA

It will be about 1-2 months away still. We're not fully restocking Amazon yet due to the pandemic and all it's related shipping issues, but we are still shipping from China.

Re: How to install DSD Plugin on Linux

I don't think you can install the plugin (if there is even one?)

But you can probably run DSD+ with Wine, someone tried here https://www.hagensieker.com/wordpress/2 ... ntu-18-04/

Re: Randomly recieving only noise at times

There appears to be a very strong intermittant signal interfereing there. Possible a pager. When that strong signal transits it overloads the SDR causing the lowered reception.

Tune around the spectrum and see if you can find it. Then you can build a bandstop filter to reduce it's power.

Re: Bias Tee low voltage

Is the dongle running on a PC / Pi ? WIth a USB cable? Perhaps your dongle is not receiving enough voltage from the host, or there is too much loss in a USB cable.

ALso i'm not sure how setting the bias tee EEPROM flag could brick it, what happened there? And how did you recover it?

Re: Solution to Power Supply and Operational Instability

Thank you for the notes! Yes a lot of the trouble posted on this forum comes down to simply a poor quality power supply being used. It seems that there are A LOT of bad ones out there. Answers to your questions below: 1: Could the KSDR box could be revised to operate on 3.3V to reduce heat generatio...

Re: KerberosSDR Developments in 2020

Would these changes require a different KerberosSDR chassis, or would they just be part of a new image that would be loaded into the SBC. Also, will support for Pi4 continue to be included in all future image releases and updates? It will have a new enclosure and shape as the PCB is changing a lot....

Re: Need guidance on KerberosSDR power port

What external power source are you using / what are the specs on it? Makes sure it's a high quality one. The Kerberos relies on that power source so it needs to be a good one. If you plug in only the power you should see a white light illuminate inside. If nothing then something is wrong with the po...

Re: Airspy YouLoop

You can receive with a V3 in direct sampling mode and with a YouLoop, but that SNR won't be as good as with a HF+ Discovery due to the specific requirements of a YouLoop.

To help you can use a HF amp, or wait until the official YouLoop preamp is released.
