Thanks for the replies.

General Radio Discussion / Morse Code Trainer
« on: December 26, 2015, 1502 UTC »
I have finally decided that I need to learn Morse code.

Any suggestions on a trainer/tutorial? Mac, Windows or online.



Spy Numbers / HM01 with "hum" 12180 KHz 26Dec2015 1029-1032 UTC
« on: December 26, 2015, 1131 UTC »
Using my new Airspy/Spyverter combo with SDRSharp I'm picking up a "hum". If anyone can guide me on how to filter this out it would be greatly appreciated.


Spy Numbers / HM01 9330 KHz AM 0716-0721 UTC Wednesday 16 Dec 2015

Numbers read by YL in Spanish. Barely audible from my location. Completely lost the signal around 0721 UTC. No recording.
Edit to add: Software: SDR Console version 2.3 build 2274


Software / SDR#, SDR Console (V2) and SdrDx
« on: December 15, 2015, 2023 UTC »
I'm currently playing with the above three programs and I have noticed some interesting differences.

My receiver - listed below in my sig - is network connected to a Mid 2011 27 inch iMac with an Intel i5 CPU @ 270GHz with 24GB RAM.
I'm running windows 8.1 via Bootcamp.

SDR# and SDR Console seem to get signals that SdrDx doesn't. For example the other day I posted regarding a signal I received, but couldn't identify, that turned out to be CHU Canada.  I was unable to get this signal using SdrDx.

For anyone who is using SdrDx would you provide any suggestions on what settings I may want to adjust to try and get these "weaker" signals?

Thanks Oliver. Is there no voice for this or did I just miss it?

A series of "beeps" on 3331 KHz later followed by a digital(?) signal on 3332 KHz.
Video here: https://youtu.be/5YI7Ln3SvPM

At approx 00:48 into the video the beeping stops and the digital begins. The beeping begins again at 00:57. This cycle repeats.

Any idea what this would be?

Software / SdrDx Newbie Looking for Mentor
« on: December 04, 2015, 2316 UTC »
Anyone here using SdrDx that would be willing to mentor a relative newbie to the software? I don't really want to bother the developer with operational related questions.

This could be done via PM or email.



Thanks Chris.

Purchased the software. Now I just need to find a station to decode. 



Is MultiMode standalone software or does it require SDR software also?  I have an Afedri SDR-Net.

Thanks for the links glimmer twin.

Utility / Link 16
« on: February 19, 2014, 1357 UTC »
Yesterday on c-span.org I was listening to a discussion on "Spectrum Allocation & National Security". Early on the speaker, General Robert E. Wheeler mentioned "Link-16" (at 4:14 in the video. Has anyone captured a Link-16 transmission? I've done a search and couldn't find anything.  Is it similar to Link-11?

If anyone is is interested, here is the link to the video. http://www.c-span.org/video/?317829-1/impact-spectrum-allocation-national-security. It runs 1 hour 38 minutes.

Vince, in the morning your time try 8300 kHz for V13.


Token, what do you define as morning re. the above?  I'd like to see if I could hear V13 here in West Texas.

Equipment / Re: Calibrating S-Meter
« on: January 28, 2014, 1457 UTC »
Thanks Chris. I know Ben says that the SdrDx S-meter is calibrated for an RFSpace radio. Since I have an Afedri, I wasn't sure if I should re-calibrate it.  I guess I just call it good.


Equipment / Calibrating S-Meter
« on: January 25, 2014, 2311 UTC »
I would like to check/calibrate the S-meter on my copy of SdrDx SDR software. I don't have a signal generator. Are there inexpensive software signal generators (for OS X) or something else I could use?  Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
