Re: No audio on upper sideband

Hello reklaus:

Maybe your driver is corrupted. Try reloading with the Zadig.

There are other posts about win10 updates breaking things but I think reloading the driver is the fix.

Hope this helps.

Re: RTL-SDR V3 long wire problems

Hello hotpaw2: Thank you for the reply. I will try the resistor trick. The funny thing is I just received a dongle with a built in upconverter and have been using it since Thursday with out any problems. I think my V3 just has a problem in the front end. Thanks again.

Re: Looking for education and advice

Hello Hinermad : Gqrx works well with the Raspberry Pi. Here is the web site for it http://gqrx.dk/download/gqrx-sdr-for-the-raspberry-pi There is a scanning plug in for Gqrx on GitHub. I don't know if it will work on the RPI but I am sure it could be compiled to work. I have found that SDRSharp is ...

Re: Why is shortwave not working on my RTL-SDR v3 + Long Wire

Hello Ben in Seattle: You will need a long wire of at least 15 feet. The 9:1 balun is recommended. RTL-SDR.com says you can connect without the balun, but I don't know how effective it would be. You would have to figure out which side of the "rabbit ears" is the center conductor. I have about 30 fee...

Re: RTL-SDR V3 long wire problems

Hello rtlsdrblog:

My current temp and humidity is 36* F and 61 %. There is zero wind. I am still getting the same problem.

Do you know of a way I can measure for static build up on the long wire?

Thank You
Robert

RTL-SDR V3 long wire problems (SOLVED)

Hi All; I have a RTL-SDR V3 Dongle. I just put a 9:1 blun, plus a long wire on it and am now getting many Shortwave stations. I can receive for about 20 or so minutes, then the bottom drops out. The noise floor goes from -70 to -95 dB and my signals go from -30+ to almost nothing. If signal is stron...
