Re: SDR Console v3 Install Footprint?

Even if very, very, VERY easy AND cheap or free, hardware upgrade not an option. Sorry! Will experiment and probably break software things for more frustration but appears to be only option. Would think others also concerned for SDR Console footprint and better answer... Attach an external disk and...

Re: SDR Console v3 Install Footprint?

Thanks. Hardware upgrade to laptop is not an option and the idea of software change to allow radio selection on install was just a suggestion. Question was which files are unnecessary, and can be deleted, for a single radio use - In this case the LAN-IQ? If there is no easy definitive answer, will ...

Re: SDR Console v3 Install Footprint?

Thanks for the reply. Running on older laptop, software appears to run OK but disk space is limited. Any way to identify the radio support, data files and delete? How much disk space recover can be expected for a single radio leaned down install? (Maybe allow selection during install?) Sorry, I rea...

Re: Screen Mag. For Program; Adjusting Of ?

CTRL+F wouldn't work here, magnification has to be built-in by the programmer.

Let's see a screenshot.

Thanks much, Simon. I will work on this in a couple of weeks. I was looking for the effect I see with AirSpy's AstroSpy. Thanks, John.
John,

Not being a user of AstroSpy I have no idea what it looks like, so next time maybe a screenshot or video?

Re: New Pluto SDR receiving poorly

Hi, Apologies in advance if this is a noob question. I recently purchased a Pluto SDR and am trying to test it on a local FM radio station (104.7MHz). I’ve changed the config of the SDR so it now operates from 70MHz to 6GHz, so it’s in range (set it to a 9361 for my Rev C version). When I try and v...

Re: Average/Integrate Spectrum buckets?

NO6B, I have tried this with little luck. I am busy with another problem, but will try it later. Thanks, John. Hi, There are things happening in the background so that the data is already averaged / interpolated to one value per DIP (pixel). Smoothing introduces algorithms to reduce the visual nois...

Re: AM reception problem

I also suggest using the RSP's AGC gains rather than setting the RF/IF but that's really just me being lazy :)

Re: SDR Console v3 Install Footprint?

Hi,

Just install the whole lot. Disk is cheap these days, the reason for the size is the number of radios supported and other supporting data files such as the geo database.
