Hello
Bizarre reaction with FDM-S3 and console V30.26 build 2085
I can zoom in and the markers image area moves, it grows or shrinks depending on the zoom setting
But below the image remains fixed and I hear the audio on the frequency shown
What do you think, Simon?
Good Sunday
Friendships

Bernard

I'm joining three Screenshots.

OMG,

You have set the visual gain to -25dB (why I do not know), so now adjust the contrast slider !!!

Dear Simon
Well done what you just informed me
No reaction on contrast slider
I also changed different positions of the visual gain
But nothing changes and the sound is there sur the right frequency displayed
Bernard

PS - Setting the visual gain - Why not!
I still haven't found a Visual Gain section to improve
A weird user, perhaps!

So,

If you do not post screenshots I cannot help you. I know the problem is the visual gain and contrast, so do what I say and POST A SCREENSHOT!

Simon,
I do not understand what you want, because I have addressed you, already three Screenshot!
I stop for meals, but I come back and I would do whatever you want.
Tell me what you need.
In complement, in my case, the contrast slider does not work!
But, right now, I have the best SDR, thank you, Franco.
PS: I'm not always on the high resolution of 24 MHz but currently I'm doing tests.
Bon appétit with an hour's lag.
I'll be back soon to read you and answer you.

  • Set the visual gain to 0.
  • In the contrast click Auto.
  • Take a screenshot!
  • Attach the logfile.

Scoop, I just finished my Sunday meal!
Dear Simon, speak yourself and write yourself French, I do!
If you have the chance to speak and write French, I would be the happiest of both, to be able to communicate even faster with you.
Under my conditions, English is not my native language, you will easily understand, that it is harder for me to analyze, understand and write immediately on the fly in your language.

My FDM-S3, Elad, was not arrested during my meal period.
The SDR is always on the same frequency or I hear cyclically the call sign of our regional relay the R3X of the 46000 the LOT, France.
I'm in USB to avoid destroying my ears, well when FM I could adjust the Squelch, but it's not the same feeling.
Currently, nothing has changed the zoom is still active and the markers are getting bigger or reduced to the will of my manipulations on the Zoom
The Contrast Slider still does not respond to my request.
The Visual Gain also does not react, but, I can hear the level of audio that changes when I intervene on its level of sensitivity.
The SDR is still active, but!
• Another notices, a vertical line from top to bottom, a few millimeter from the left edge.

A bonus screenshot to restart the contact.
(Note, the signal level has dropped, it is no longer visible)

Just read your last post.
• Set the visual gain to 0. = Fact
• In the contrast click Auto. = Fact
• Take a screenshot! = Fact
• Attach the logfile. = Made and attached in copy

See you soon

Bernard

OK,

Something is wrong. Switch the ELAD off, wait 5 seconds, switch on. Restart Console.

I don't know whether the S3 covers 2m - try 88 to 108 MHz.

Simon
Operations performed (Extinguish, 5 seconds, on, restart console position band 88 108 MHz
The operation did not go as planned. In the end the software was blocked.
I again stopped all the whole, put the procedure back step by step.
Down the BW to 3.072 MHz
Put in the center band 88 to 108 MHz
Nothing works anymore. SDR-Console remains blocked
I send you Screenshot FDM-S3 Blocked and new Logfile

Answer your questions
Yes, it goes much higher than 108 MHz, but it is not in its best conditions necessarily.
I'm looking forward to the option down-converter (not before, I think the first quarter 2021)

See you soon

Bernard

Bernard

1) Last time: set visual gain to 0! You keep setting it to -25.
2) I have no idea what is wrong, there is no data.
3) Maybe try another USB port.
4) Maybe restart the computer?
