Re: Looking for old SDR# source (SVN) from March or April

I don't have a source but tbh, I wouldn't really bother with SDR# in Linux in the first place. It was never really fully stable and was quite slow under Mono.

Better to just use GQRX which is somewhat similar to SDR#.

Re: Ok what am i doing wrong

Hmmm unfortunately, it seems that some USB 3.0 controllers are just buggy and don't play nice with several devices, including the RTL-SDR. I've never seen a laptop with only USB 3.0, so it might be a case of bad luck for now. I'll update this thread or make a post on the blog if I ever hear about a ...

Re: AIS

Seems to work okay for me. It would be good if we could set the gain. When I use max gain I get strong interference from other stations, but at slightly lower gain the interference dissapears.

Re: Open Source Project

Interesting project. You should know that SDR# was never open source, the dev just released the code for free viewing only, but the code was always licensed. He removed the free viewing because people weren't paying attention to the licence and were stealing his code. I think what you need to look a...

Re: No compatible devices found

Yeah no RTL2832 in there, so not compatible. The one you linked on ebay should work. RTL2832U + R820T is the most common.

Re: white space scanner

To write your own software you'll probably need to use GNU Radio for your project, its a signal processing application that's compatible with the RTL-SDR.

Re: VHF Fire & Police monitoring with SDR#

Have you adjusted the RF gain in the SDR# configure menu?

Re: No compatible devices found

Can you open it up and check what chips are inside? There could be several versions of the TvGo.

Re: Anyone recoommend a decent antenna?

The antenna on your roof if probably a Yagi, which is directional and so will only receive signals in the direction it is pointed in. For a radio scanner like the RTL-SDR you probably want a wideband omnidirectional antenna. Look up discones or planar disk antennas.
