QO-100: Wideband spectrum plugin

#1

Unread post by ZS1SCI »

Hi there

I was wondering if anyone has experience making plugins for sdr-console?

The idea is to have sdr-console send UDP message to the minitiouner radio device eg: 232.0.0.11 with and message like this :
[GlobalMsg],Freq=10498750,Offset=9750000,Doppler=0,Srate=333,WideScan=0,LowSR=0,DVBmode=Auto,FPlug=A,Voltage=0,22kHz=Off;

Setting the symbol rate, frequency and things like which tuner to use etc.

This would create a local spectrum solution one could use for tuning the external program via udp broadcasts.

Currently most of QO-100 is using the BATC spectrum, which is fantastic, but I'm in Africa and sometimes that line isn't available and then the software using it fails too.

This would be a failsafe and a replacement of what QuickTune is doing, but using sdr-console.

Input on the matter would be appreciated.

Regards
Ohan

Do you have a link for this message format, and a link to the minitiouner radio?

Hi there

yes this radio from the BATC site:
https://wiki.batc.org.uk/MiniTiouner_hardware_Version_2

then with regards to tuning it the only reference is in QuickTune itself:
https://github.com/m0dts/QO-100-WB-Live ... 57-L531C74

and then looking at what is on GitHub
https://github.com/search?q=%5BGlobalMs ... &type=code

the way I've implement it in my node red flows is to send the symbol rate, frequency and offset in kHz, currently only have one tuner module on my minitiouner radio so only FPlug=A.

besides these three variable, then rest stays mostly the same :)

I hope that helps

Good morning

Is there SDK documentation I could use?
