    Hi Folks

    I’m using SoapySDR with RTL_Airband but am struggling to find an appropriate gain setting. What is clearly confusing me is the ability to either set gain with either:

    gain =
    or
    gain = “IFGR= ,RFGR=”

    Even more of a struggle is that the lower the value? the higher the gain?

    With the use of RTL_Airband and a high quality VHF airband antenna some 5 meters above the house, can anyone suggest appropriate settings that may have worked for them well?

    Thanks

    gain = “IFGR= ,RFGR=”

    higher the number the higher the gain.
    cubicsdr uses soapysdr if you find gain settings that work for you there you can use them in rtl_airband.
