I can't hear anything on MW and SW

Post by vichoste » Tue Mar 26, 2019 1:30 pm

I'm new to this, so I'm sorry if I'm forgetting something.
I'm trying to listen to HF and mediumwave radio through the RTL-SDR dongle and a TECSUN AN-03L antenna with a SMA adapter. I already switched to the Q branch in SDRSharp. Nothing appears on audio and waterfall.
On this image I was expecting at least an AM broadcasting radio at 1450 kHz.

I've also went outside and still nothing. I have a radio that picks MW and SW fine even indoors.

If you touch the antenna wire do the signals improve?

Try turning on RTL AGC as well to see if that helps.
