RTL-SDL Pan Adapter - HDSDR / FTDX-3000

Post by KD2NOM » Mon Jan 21, 2019 8:33 pm


I have been trying to configure my RTL-SDR to work with HDSDR as a Pan Adpater using the IF output from my Yaesu FTDX-3000 and am having no success.

The FTDX-3000 outputs the IF at 9 MHz but I am not clear on hour to configure either HDSDR or SDR Sharp to work with the IF Output. I have the IF Output going into the RTL-SDR v3's antenna port.

Has anyone here successfully configured this to work with an FTDX-3000?

Additionally, the rig control for the radio is being handled by another computer - I do not want the computer that the RTL-SDR is plugged into to control the rig - just display what is coming thru the IF output - is that possible?

Thank you.

The antenna port works only about 30 MHz and up. EIthe use and upconverter or you have to use the direct sampling input. Both are explained can be found on rtl-sdr.
