Re: User defineable Bandwidth

Maybe i'm missing something here but i'm not looking for a wider filter, i'm looking to sample (or view) a wider area of the radio spectrum at the same time. Basically an option to define a custom bandwidth here instead of having to select one from a predefined list: https://i.gyazo.com/cab7d35b1f0...

Re: HL2 TX Issues 15m

Hi Johan The fact you have problems only on one frequency leads me to think you have some RF getting into the system somewhere on that frequency. What is antenna and how is it matched? I have similar issues on 7 MHz but it's clearly an issue with my (soon to be replaced) temporary lash-up antenna sy...

Re: Transmit power limited to 3W

Hi Nicolos

FWIW I would be very interested in Simon's opinion/investigation too on this one.

Simon, sorry to hear that you had the dreaded CV19. Had not realised. Think this post possibly posted around that period? Hope you feeling fully recovered?

Re: RX888 Mk2 - Import charges to UK?

Mine arrived a few weeks ago and like most packages from China was marked down for customs value. Mine came through as a 'module' worth $20 on the CN22 form so didn't attract the attention of UK customs. OK many thanks. What I suspected! I theory it should just scrape in under the new £135 level fo...

Re: VHF/UHF performance (and LF/VLF too!)

Has anyone been able to compare performance of the RX888 Mk2 with the Mk1 at VHF/UHF? Is it significantly different as I understand it uses a newer tuner chip for VHF/UHF, R828D instead of R820T2, bit also has different LNA gain/attenuator arrangements ? Want to replace my RSP2Pro but wonder if it's...

RX888 Mk2 - Import charges to UK?

Sorry, not a technical question. Just wondered if anyone purchased the RX888 Mk2 on AliExpress from China for import to the UK and if so did it arrive with any extra charges to pay? Listings generally say free shipping to UK but wonder if it then gets trapped by UK Customs or extra scam charges .......

Re: OP power and Drive controls question

Hi Simon While on the subject of output power from Hermes Lite 2, is there any chance you could take 5 mins to look at the post thread linked below. I think it originally came during your mid-builder period? Be interested if you can confirm or otherwise potential findings from F4INE re: sending of p...
