sdr sharp ham band labels and srd blog.com bandwidth

Post by chuckinnc » Thu Jul 06, 2017 8:02 pm

My sdr # ham band labels labels are off, like 40m stops at 7.200 and Shortwave starts, LSB switches to AM mode, not a big problem if I remember to change back to LSB, but wondering if a newer version sdr # would be better mine is ver 1.0.0.1488

Also my sdr# with my rtl sdr.com blog dongle only shows 2 mhz or less bandwidth, like cheap tv dongles, the add says up to
3.2 mhz bandwith, how can I get this wider BW?

I'm not sure what's wrong with your labels, maybe a fresh install might help.

The RTL-SDR is stable at receiving audio up to 2.4 MHz, but tends to drop samples above. So 3.2 MHz mode is only really useful for doing wideband waterfall scans.

To change the bandwidth click the cog icon in SDR#, and set it there. Remember to click stop in SDR# first.
