Re: Inmarsat weak signal (settings help?)

Your picture of the L band signals is considered very good with the hardware your using. You can clean up the waterfall by adj the contrast. All is good.

Re: Need help with new HF/VHF-UHF dongle

Did you click on that cog and select which rtl your going to select? ...The same place you increase rf gain ??
Is rtlsdr.dll in the directory ?
I use to have to do the zadig routine if I inserted the dongle into a different usb port.
