rtl sdr problem

Post by Samtheham98 » Wed Oct 19, 2016 3:46 pm

Hi everyone hopefully you can help i purchased a box from ebay i have installed sdr# and installed drivers etc i can recieve good signals using the uv input on the box in vhf . But when i connect to the hf input it makes no difference to signal no matter what antenna i use in the hf input . Its not that my signal is weak there is absoloutly no signal at all ii think maybe the box i bought from ebay is faulty unless im doing something wrong i did follow all the correct set up steps so im stuck now considering sending it back its a shame as vhf signals are good . :|

Are you sure your SDR dongle supports HF - Can you post a picture or tell us about the model ?

I have not yet heard of SDR units with separate HF inputs, but I am quite new to this..
