Thanks for allowing me to join up. I’m an old, not-very-technical ham radio guy experiencing my latest frustration… attempting to get a spectrum analyzer.waterfall working on my laptop.
I am using an SDR/play P2 with SDR/uno, Windows 10 and a Yaesu FT-950 transceiver. Here’s my problem: I have tapped into the FT-950 making use of the 69 MHz First IF instead of an additional exterior antenna. The board of the FT-950 has an ideal place to pick this up at a plug labeled SCOPE. I followed an article by John J. Haddleton published in 2013.
I’m GUESSING I need to add or subtract the 69 MHz somewhere in the program set-up in order to read the correct frequency range I’m monitoring on the FT-950, but I have NO IDEA how or where to do this math.
To troubleshoot my set-up, I set my FT-950 to 610 KHz AM which is a local AM broadcast station. Without allowing anything for the 69 MHz IF feed, I get some garbled audio at the 610 KHz setting, but that’s all.
How am I supposed to correctly set things up use the 69 MHz IF with the SDR/play P2??? HELP please.
Hi weldguy, I suspect that there is a way to do it in sdruno but I like to use HDSDR and have problems with sdruno. Under the config of HDSDR there is an option to key in an offset as I have used that feature with another sdr. So if you decide to try HDSDR (its straightforward) you just have to use the proper extiosdr*.dll for your sdrrsp unit and then you tweek the offset. you can do it, I’m probably older than you. 🙂
