Big signal this evening into the mountains of Virginia.
Happy to catch RFW tonight!

I ordered an SDRplay DX from HRO when they were on sale, a Red Pitaya and a Hermes 2 lite.
Now I need more antennas.

Still waiting on apache-labs to ship the G2.

S9+ into the cloudy mountains of Virginia.

S9 just above the noise but very readable, SSTV signal with timestamp.



Solid S9 into the mountains of Virginia.

I look forward to RFW every week.

I managed to get the HackRF to play nicely with SDRsharp but the lack of plugins for anything amateur radio is a downer.
On the plus side, I get ~20MHz easily.

If I could get SDRuno to work with it I'd be happy.

Thanks for the suggestions!

I was leaning toward the Airspy+ I live way out in the boonies (NRQZ) with no neighbors for miles and no strong stations.
I like the diversity of the duo but it's getting on for double the cost of a single tuner.

Mainly looking for software compatibility and plugins, I'm guessing both of them are catered for equally?

Chris, the AFEDRI looks like a good choice but I'm kinda over having to get software to work with this HackRF and it looks like this would be an uphill struggle.

What I'd love to do is monitor and report all digi (FT4/8/JT/etc) from 0-30 in one go, the closest I've seen is the 20meg bandwidth of the HackRF with SparkSDR2 software.

I'm looking for a semi-decent receiver for my station, I have an Anan G2 on order but that'll be my main TX radio.
I also have a HackRF but compatibility isn't the best, Ideally looking for as large a slice of HF as possible with good performance and good compatibility.
Looking to keep the spend at $300USD or less.

Thanks all.

Wonderful to hear RFW again!
20+ into the mountains of VA.

20 over in the mountains of VA, some minor fading.

S9+10 here in the mountains of VA.
Nice audio.

Best I could grab in VA:


Fun Fact: Learnt is a word used by mostly British people (such as myself) and is absolutely a word.

Still 20 over in NW VA

Still +20 here in VA, some minor fading.
