SDR# Now with Noise Blanker

The latest version of SDR# has now been updated to include a noise blanker plugin. A noise blanker can reduce impulsive noises like those created by spark gaps and electric motors. Other SDR programs like Linrad and HDSDR have had noise blanker functions for a while so this is a welcome addition to SDR#. Below is a comparison of the noise blanker turned on and off on a noisy CW signal.

To update SDR# to the latest version simply run install.bat again. Take note that updating will remove any plugins you have added to the SDRSharp.exe.Config file so you may wish to save it first.
