Re: VST2 host for SDR#?

Hi Jacob, What do you require for a plugin to host your VST filters? I could probably write you a a plugin with an interface you could use to implement your code... Eddie Well, the thing is I code in a language called JSFX, which is then compiled into VST2 .dll files. These VST2 files are loaded by...

Re: V3 warms up even when computer is shut down

What PC do you have that keeps USB power on? Assuming the Q is for me; I have a windows10 ASUS. I do believe windows10 does indeed use some kind of 'always on' (Under the hood, so to speak) in order to be able to boot fast. But in the windows settings I noticed that USB are always ON. I never chang...

Re: V3 dongle overheating?

Remember that the burning sensation in your fingers can happen even if the temperature is not much higher than about 45C (About 113F)

It doesn't have to be much above body-temp before it feels very warm.

Re: V3 warms up even when computer is shut down

I believe it's pretty normal for USB's to keep power ON even when the PC is shut-down. There's a setting in Windows and/or BIOS (You'd have to google for 'selective suspend' or 'USB power after shutdown', or something along those lines, to find more info on it than I know from memory) where you can ...

Re: ELAD FDM-S3

Have anybody done any tests of it yet? Comparing it to the S2 or HF+? One comparison I found has the S2 at a slight lead over the HF+: https://dk8ok.org/2017/12/06/airspy-hf-what-you-hear-is-what-you-get/ (Not a major lead, in terms of sound, but still a tad better) It would be very interesting to h...

VST2 host for SDR#?

This is to all developers; is anybody considering creating an SDR# plugin that would be able to load, and obviously use, VST2 plugins inside it? Steinberg's VST2 api is here: http://www.dith.it/listing/vst_stuff/vstsdk2.4/doc/sdk.overview.html I'm not able to create SDR# plugins myself, but can crea...

Re: T-plug for spyverter

Oooohhh thank you very much for that heads-up on the bias-t... The T-junction is just a standard in-active T-plug (Same concept as hot-wiring 2 cables I suppose) At the moment I have a dipole on the VHF side (It goes through an FM-block filter and then into the T-plug) I have a long-wire on the HF s...

Re: T-plug for spyverter

UPDATE: I have now received the T-plug and are currently running a first test... It appears to work... I have signal at both VHF and HF now, in one single channel-scan :) For HF to work: The spyverter must be turned ON (Obviously) For VHF (and above) to work: The spyverter can be either ON or OFF (I...

Re: Air spy

Is it Win10 force-updating the dongle-driver perhaps?

If Win10 'thinks' it has a more appropriate driver than the zadig-driver.

I know Win7 keeps asking if it should install the 'recommended driver', but luckily it doesn't force-install it. I'm not sure if Win10 is just as cooperative...

Re: Airspy HF+ Gain conntrol

Thanks. I keep playing with gain, and there definitely is a sweet-spot somewhere in the middle (I'm not using HF+ though, but the AirspyR2 for this) If I go too low, the wanted signals go away and the noise-floor settles on some minimum it won't go under. If I set it too high, the wanted signals don...
