    Thanks Jim 🙂 the foundation licence is a beginners entry licence it has a few restrictions and once that is passed i can move on to the full licence that 1 is a little more involved but ive been playing around with radio equipment since the 80s so the 1st part should be easy enough a lot of it is common sense …

    your project sounds interesting like to hear more via pm ect once i am able to book test after lock-down ill try give you a shout..

    Greetings to all!

    My name is Errol. Just purchased an SDRdx and am using the SDRUno software. Location USA Arizona.
    I am new to this technology. I have questions so I will try posting elsewhere on this forum for that.

    So salutations to all and I hope this new forum website becomes popular.

    So long for now!

    Hi, everyone. I am interested in all aspects of amateur radio via SDRPlay and SDR UNO.


    Steve from Derbyshire uk. I bought an Sdrplay rsp1a just over a year ago. I think it’s a great sdr receiver for the price. I use my rsp1a for listening to shortwave broadcasts, amateur radio, aircraft, and decoding drm digital radio stations on shortwave bands. I also use sdr uno for decoding dmr digital, Wefax, morse code and tetra etc. There is much you can do with your rsp1a it’s a great piece of kit.



    My license is GW4RER but just listening at this time.

    SDR has brought back into the hobby. I have an RSP1A and a G5RV as well as a discone for higher frequencies. Very impressed with SDRplay, the products and, most of all, the online videos and support.

    Best wishes,

    Llantwit Major, South Wales

    Hello All, My name is Wayne, WD6AHX, in Ardmore Oklahoma. Just purchased an RSPdx from HRO. I have had an Icom R7000 rcvr for 20+ years that ceased to work earlier this year, so I thought I would join the 21st century and go with the SDR. VERY Happy so far, and that is with only a 6′ telescoping dipole here in my office so far.
    Extremely surprised by the sensitivity considering the far-from-optimal antenna. I look forward to further developments in this arena.

    Hello – My name is Philip. Thanks for the forum. I’m located in Brighton and Hove on the south coast of the UK. I’m anticipating using the newly acquired RSP1A to accompany my Amateur Radio activity (hence the selected username G4KIL). I have it running fine on the home MSWindows 10 computer, but this is in a flat and antenna options are very limited. I mostly operate “portable” and was hoping to use the SDRPlay with a Chromebook, but it seems the Android app will not work with this 🙁 I probably post a separate thread in this regard.



    My name is Carlos, and from Atlanta, Ga area. I’m an Extra Class Ham Operator, and interested in the SDR radios.



    Name is Jack & I just discovered the concept of SDR. This is just in time for the next sunspot max in July 2025. I had a lot of fun in the last cycle & got a real kick out of picking up E & F layer skip like taxi dispatchers in Rio, Japanese hams calling CQ on 29.60 two hours after local dark, Ft Hood Range Control & tank training maneuver comms. missile launch comms at White Sands. I lived on a mountain then & had an OE-254/GRC bicone antenna mounted on my deck. I’ve relocated to a nice, high place in PA but the wife says no to putting up outdoor antennas. My office & computer are in my basement so I’ve been considering putting a wideband coax loop antenna above my drop ceiling. I have all the patents on this type of antenna as well as 90+ feet of low-loss coax but that will be a long term project. Today I bought an SDRplay RSP2 DX & to start an MFJ-1022 active antenna from HRO in DE. Nice guys, they understand this gear & can guide a newbie.

    My house is 1970s wood construction so I hope my basement horizontal ceiling antenna works out. The DX I’m interested in comes down at a high angle & I believe polarization modes are affected by the ionosphere.

    I like owning & operating state-of-art-nearly receivers. I’ve had an R-390A & two ICOM R-7000s. This SDR has all the things I’ll need to get set up & hopefully enjoy getting back into the SWL hobby.
