Re: rtlsdr.dll loading problem in Win 7 x86

When you selected Bulk In Interface Interface 0, what do you mean that you found no entry for the RTL driver? The RTL driver is the WinUSB driver, so that it what needs to be installed on the bulk interface. If the first box shows None, this simply means that there is no driver install on that inter...

Re: Problem with install-rtlsdr.bat

There seems to be some problem with your PC not allowing the zip file to be downloaded. The zip file file size is 0kB. Any overly aggressive antivirus? Firewall blocking the download?

Try doing the manual installation specified in step 5 if your PC won't let the batch file run.

Re: [Newbie] Help on choosing coaxial cable.

Just make sure you buy the right connector for the cable. Usually SMA will not fit directly onto RG6, as the cable is too big. For RG6 you can buy RG6 BNC connectors or compression F-type, and then an adapter. You'll need to buy the right compression tools for the job and practice with them. The too...

Re: Decent HF-VHF indoor antenna

Indoor is tricky as you'll be picking up a lot of interference from electronic devices inside. So an amplified antenna probably won't be that great as it will only increase the amount of noise picked up too. I'd recommend two different antennas, one for HF and one for VHF+. Are you able to stick any...

Re: A lot of signals on 800mhz

Yep appears to be DVB-T http://www.sigidwiki.com/wiki/DVB-T. It's just that you can't see the full size of it with the RTL-SDR. Not sure why there are lines throughout it though, could be some sort of interference as well.

Re: Help Me Choose My Next Rig

The higher bands that the E4000 gets you is the frequency range 1.7 GHz till about 2.2 GHz. There's not really much up there, except for cell phones. Some E4000 units also have a reception gap near 1090 MHz making them bad for ADS-B. AIS is at 162 MHz so will work fine on either the R820T or E4000/ ...

Re: SDRPlay - Buy or not?

Answers to your questions 1) It works, but with the SDRplay plugin functionality is not active. 2) So you cannot use the SDRplay with the QPSK plugin. 3) The SDRplay has two LNA's. One at the very beginning of the front end, before the external filters, and then one later on in the chain in the Miri...

Re: A lot of signals on 800mhz

Is there an official frequency spectrum database for your country that you can lookup? Usually countries will provide such a database and you can go and see what company owns that specific frequency allocation. The signal looks quite wideband, might be for HD TV, or mobile internet.

Re: Frequency scanner help

You're not meant to add the magic line to the SDRSharp.exe. You need to add it to the plugins.xml file.
