Re: SDR# + Windows 10 Pro + gr-dect2?

Can the RTL-SDR tune to DECT signals? The signals are between 1880 and 1900 MHz.

Re: 10 feet / 3 meters USB extension cord

I will not recommend phone charging cables for SDR's since they have barely to no shielding. I didn't propose to use such a cable, I was just trying to explain that cable diameter is not ameasure of resistance of the power lines. It was just a general advice against in case someone find this topic ...

Re: TETRA Trunk Tracker for use with SDR# and TETRA Demodulator plug-in

Thank you for making this software. Since 2 weeks the Tetra network I'm monitoring having mixed encrypted and unencrypted users. Despite I choose for "only listen to clear speech" I do still hear encrypted calls due some bugs in the Tetra Demodulator plugin. With your trunk tracker those encrypted c...

I'm using a passive cable. It's not that special or expensive: https://www.amazon.com/Valueline-male-U ... 00DC3L4GQ/

Ground RTL-SDR to mast. Good or bad idea?

I have a 2 meters aluminum mast tube on the attic with a Diamond X30 antenna mounted on top. On the attic is also my Raspberry Pi rtl_tcp server with a double shielded USB 3.0 extension cable to my RTL-SDR dongle. My idea was to mount the dongle with cable ties to the bottom of the mast so it can di...

10 feet / 3 meters USB extension cord

Can a safely use 10 feet / 3 meters USB extension cord or will it cause problems? I want to use it in between my RTL-SDR dongle and my Raspberry Pi running rtl_tcp. My fear is it will generate buffer overflows.

I'm thinking of buying an USB 3 cable because these are rated for higher bandwidth.

Are you running the x64 version of SDR#? On their website I only see a x86 version for Windows. I found the x64 version myself but I can neither get this version to work.
