No HF with RTL-SDR

Post by rfhall50 » Mon Apr 22, 2019 1:44 am

I realize it’s probably my fault, but I can not get an HF waterfall using the RTL-SDR V3. I have tried both HDSDR and SDR#. Followed the directions to the letter with regards to installation. I am able to pick up local AM Stations using both HDSDR and SDR#. They show up great on the Waterfall.

The dongle is being used on a Yaesu FT-950. Ordered the TMP to SMA cable. Checked it with meter, no problems. It is firmly plugged into the SCOPE socket as multiple videos show. All software current. Have run Zadig more times than I care to remember. Played with gains, settings, etc.

Have had the dongle about 2 weeks. Don’t have a clue what to do next. Any help you can offer is appreciated. Thank you in advance.

UPDATE: Should have mentioned before, but the HF signals are coming trough loud and clear through the FT-950.
