Will any version of SDRSharp be okay

Hello All.
A friend told me you can only use v 1671 of SDRSharp if you want to capture the NOAA and Meteor Satellites.

Is the true or false. Sounds very strange to me.

Many thanks for any answers.

Quirks and other tip with an QHA

Hello All. I have had a QHA built for me. I know absolutely nothing about antennas required for weather satellites. As far as I have read, the QHA is one of the better if not the best.

LNA advice wanted

Hello All, I have a QHA made by my very kind neighbour for me as I am severely disabled after an ugly incident and now have no use from my body, however that's another story.

Frequency wont change when stored

Hello All. As usual, I've touched something I shouldn't have on SDRuno. I have my frequencies all stored. It has been working flawlessly. Then this morning I tried to catch NOAA 19 it did not change from where it was, tried all the three of them nothing moved. Went into config's and checked but stil...

Any thoughts on the EF-SWL

Hello All. Unfortunately, I am severely disabled and rely on my neighbour or wife to carry out the physical work for me, such as hanging the wire etc. It saddens me by lying in bed or strapped to a wheelchair and see others working on my behalf, so I decided to look for a commercially made aerial, t...
