I’ve been tinkering with sdrplay with e4000 dongle. I think I’ve got it all installed properly. I’ve also played with SDRSHARP and HDSDR. SDRPLAY seems to be missing an obvious key feature. On HDSDR I can click drag the spectrum to any band of frequencies I want. I can’t make that kind of function happen on SDRPLAY. If I want to hop 20mhz to another frequency I have to keyboard the new center frequency and go from there. I can’t just drag the spectrum window around. I’m thinking that this deficiency is just some kind of operator error thing. Like maybe I need to press the shift key while click dragging the mouse or something like. Maybe I’m the oddball and no one else likes that feature?
I have looked at a LOT of SDRPLAY youtubes and I never see that operation. they always just take time to key in the new freq. Is that just the way works? No mousing around?
Maybe what I am looking for is just not that commonly used although I use that function on HDSDR a lot. Makes tuning very easy.
yes, thanks I have been doing that. Problem is I have gotten so accustommed to just dragging/slinging the spectrum along with the mouse. Its kinda like spinning the dial on an old radio. I think they support an external usb knob?
