Tuner knob

Is it possible to still get this version of the Tuner Knob Plugin or was it only compatible with earlier versions of SDR#? All I see on version 1810 is just the knob without the control panel. Just curious.

Re: Anyone tried one of these?

Thanks for the feedback. I contacted them hoping for a photo or two of the inside of one of their units to see what the build quality was like. They seem to be hand made which may or may not signify much. I might take a chance on one later but for now, I'm going to have a go at making one out of an ...

Why do I need an SDR?

Ok, I hope this isn't some sort of heresy, but if I can access SpyServer networks and web based SDR so easily, do I really need an SDR dongle? A question for me to answer at the end of the day, of course but I'm just wondering what other folks think.

Re: Test antenna

Thanks for the detailed and very helpful reply, Joe. I'll try out what you suggest for the whip antenna and am looking forward to trying out the rabbit-ears kit when that arrives.

SDR Sharp and Fldigi not talking

Hi, I'm completely new to SDR and decoding but I hope someone suggest something I haven't tried yet to fix this problem. I'm waiting for membership approval of the Nbems group so I can ask there but meanwhile I thought I see if anyone here can assist. I cannot get SDR Sharp to talk to Fldigi (or vic...

Anyone tried one of these?

Hi Has anyone had any experience with this product? I'm thinking of getting one to use with SDR#. Any user experience with the product or the company would be very valuable. It's been a long time since I bought anything from the UK. https://sdrgadgets.co.uk/universal/39-universal-vfo-tuner-plus.html...

Re: Test antenna

Thanks for the reply, Joe. It's a tiny fixed whip about 12" in height with a mag base perched on a window ledge. At the moment the ONLY signals I've been able to actually read using it are from my local FM relay (88-108Mhz) and I already have mobile phones and transistor radios for that. I tried att...

Test antenna

Hi All I'm a complete newbie to SDR so please go easy on me! I recently bought a cheap RTL-SDR box which came with a tiny 12" vertical whip as a test antenna. I've also ordered the RTL-SDR Blog dongle and the Multipurpose Dipole Antenna kit which should be a bit better. While, I'm waiting for the an...
