Re: Problems with short-wave reception

The Boni-Whip looks like an active antenna, I assume you have it powered through the BNC power thing?

To see shortwave with your upconverter you'd need to tune between to 106.250 MHz and 136.250 MHz. You could also set the "shift" in SDR# to -106,000,000 then you can tune from 0 -30 MHz like normal.

Re: Updating sdr#

To update SDR# usually all you need to do is double click on install.bat again.

Re: CW decoding software

Yes, try http://www.dxsoft.com/en/products/cwget/, and http://www.hotamateurprograms.com/downloads.htm. You just need to pipe the audio into these programs from SDR# or similar via Virtual Audio Cable or VBCable.

Re: NooElec hardware or software problem

So you need to reinstall the drivers every time after removing the dongle? I can think of a few things to try. Either the USB connection is loose (try a different extension cable or plugging it in directly), your USB controllers are buggy (update their drivers) or Windows is replacing your RTL-SDR d...

Re: Where are the signals?

Have you been adjusting the RF gain settings in SDR#? The antenna you have is good, but getting it on the roof would definitely help. It's hard to say whether or not you should be seeing more as all locations have different signals in the air. My tip would be to use as little coax as possible, inste...

Re: Using SDR# with AirProbe

26mb is too big for the forum to handle and doc files aren't allowed for security, upload it in an image format if possible. Upload the IQ file to service like mega.co.nz or Dropbox first.

Re: Using SDR# with AirProbe

Ah I think you're the same guy I was chatting with through email. As in the email get an RTL-SDR dongle and see what the signal is actually like first. You can post a sound and waterfall sample or small IQ recording here if you like. From there we can determine the next steps.

Re: TV antenna

Yes, but it will probably perform best on the TV bands like it was designed to do. But if its a a bunny ears dipole type you should be able to get a wider range out of it by adjusting the telescopic ears and mounting it vertically.

Re: Reverse Engineering RF Remote

I think your assumptions are correct. If you go through our post history searching for reverse engineering you should find some similar projects that might give you ideas http://www.rtl-sdr.com/?s=reverse+engineering. For replaying the signal, something like rfcat would probably be the easiest, unle...

Re: Ubuntu 14.04 Find the driver for a usb stick rtl-srd

Did you buy a dongle with the R828D chip in it for DVB-T2?

I'm not sure if that model is fully supported, did you try install the RTL-SDR drivers for Linux? Or are you trying to watch TV with this stick?
