AirSpy HF+ Setup Problem
« on: March 11, 2018, 1728 UTC »
It says to raise the gain using the slider on the right until noise floor reaches 5 db. Try to do this slider control doesn't respond. The sample rate is supposed to be 10 MSPS and the display is supposed to be 8 mhz. I have neither of those and set a frequency to a local AM radio station but I have no reception. I clicked the start triangle and it says cannot open device What am I doing wrong?

The HF+ has a sample rate of 768 kHz, not 10 MHz. I am not sure what software you are using, SDR#? Sounds like you have not actually selected the HF+ as the device to use.
