rsp_tcp ignoring command line options?

Hi - I'm trying to setup my Rpi + RSP2 to stream samples across my network to another linux machine running the iridium decoder, so I can relocate the receiving gear to a better position. I thought rsp_tcp might be the answer. I set it up on the Pi and used netcat on the other box to pipe the stream...

Help with gr-osmosdr device arguments?

Hi all

Can anyone point me to the supported device arguments and gain control commands for the SDRplay (RSP-2) under gr-osmosdr? I have the basics working but can’t find specifics on the supported commands?

Thanks

Linux/gqrx RSP2 selecting antenna and bias

Hi - can anyone help me with the device arguments to select Antenna B and enable bias-t in gqrx?

I’ve compiled gr-osmosdr with the enable non-free option and installed the API. Seems to be working in SoapySDR but I need to get it working through the osmosdr drivers in gqrx. Any ideas?

Re: Active loop build - construction questions

I cheated and had them rolled at place nearby with a hydraulic pipe bender :) I now have it mounted up on the 2nd story roof and results are the same - seems to be overloading the SDRPlay everywhere. Would a simple external attenuator help if this is the case? Where would I insert it? If it needs to...

Re: Active loop build - construction questions

I received the LZ1AQ amplifier kit and I decided to update from the PE-Al-PE material to plain 1inch Al tubing (1.5mm wall size). I am running two 1m loops in the same plane, but results in the 40m band where I do most of my listening are not as good as my randomly cut center fed dipole. For power I...

Re: Active loop build - construction questions

Had a go this weekend making a single loop. I have not received the amplifier kit yet, but hooked it to the SDRPlay briefly and can certainly see some the sensitivity change when I rotate it by hand. Lower noise level is giving better digital mode decoding and HF fax reception. Two questions: I woul...

Active loop build - construction questions

I'm about to attempt to build an active loop antenna and have a couple of questions re the loop. I plan to use a 1m diameter loop - either aluminium tube if i can get it shaped, or the PE-Al-PE tubing used for hot water systems or a/c plumbing, and 1.5 or 2" PVC for the 'mast' which will run up the ...
