Re: Sources of broad-band noise-bursts?

Light switches sometimes give of wideband noise bursts, but this looks to be in a defined area, so more likely to be something else. That's what puzzles me too. I get a lot of them. Most seem to be about 10 MHz wide, but occasionally these huge ones show up. They're never on the same frequency (At ...

Sources of broad-band noise-bursts?

What might be sources of broad-band noise-bursts, like the one seen in this screen-grab? (It's the horizontal line from 120 to 210 MHz) The antenna is sitting in a corner in a living-room, and isn't near any obvious electrical installations (Nor is the antenna-cable) It is in an apartment-building t...

Re: Decoding Issues

I have never tried VB-audio, so can't help with that. I use "Stereo Mix" instead, since that just uses the audio that you hear, which works fine as long as you don't need to decode speech from it. In the 'File', 'Mixer Control' (In WXtoIMG) you should be able to set up the audio input to something l...

Re: JTempestSDR

Thank you. The thing is I already had got it working (Using your fork) It ran in march 2018, when I set it up and tested it, on a Windows10-x64 machine. I managed to get it running with 2 different SDR's (One being an AirspyR2) Then I didn't use it again, until I wanted to try it a few days ago... b...

JTempestSDR

Does "JTempestSDR" still run on Windows10 for people here? On my system it seems it doesn't work anymore. When I try to run the .jar file nothing happens. No error-messages or anything. Just nothing. So I'm wondering if it's some windows update that broke things on my end, or if it's broken for all.

Re: Any antenna suggestions?

The stations also tend to be on other and multiple frequencies. The strong stations are now on most frequencies and overlap all the time. I search an antenna that: - can receive between 80 - 130 MHz So the BCFM (Commercial FM-radio) stations overlap and repeat on various frequencies? Wouldn't that ...

Re: SDR# scanner plugin

I see this thread dates back to last year, with new comments added recently, so I guess it's in place to post the following here: This scanner is superb in SDR# : http://rtl-sdr.ru/page/obnovlen-timeshift-i-scanner Very fast and very flexible. The wider your SDR-spectrum is, the faster it can scan. ...

Re: Trying to receive 137 MHz on boat

Now for FM broadcast. Below is a SDR screen shot for one of the strongest stations. Here I have AGC off and RF Gain set to 30 dB (lower left hand corner). Is this too strong of a signal? Just to chime in with my own experiences here; I have plenty of brodcast-FM signals that reach similar height (W...

Re: V3 warms up even when computer is shut down

USB power has always been default to be off when the computer is shut down. I've never encountered a computer so far that has them on. What's the model of your PC/Laptop? Assuming this was for me. I use a so-called 'gamer-pc' set to 'high performance'. Maybe that's what keeps USB active. I don't kn...
