Assorted ramblings from the developer


ALADM-PLUTO Support is Ready
ALADM-PLUTO Support is Ready

After 10 days of very interesting programming the pluto project is ready to be released into the wild now that basic transmit support is ready.

Vist the Pluto page on this site [link].

Here's three FM Stereo signals being demodulated along with their RDS.


ADALM-PLUTO (3)

Here's a screenshot of Pluto receiving FM Stereo.

More information available on the Pluto page [link].


ADALM-PLUTO (2)

The PlutoSDR is running smoothly with a 6 MHz bandwidth. Plenty more coding needed, but at least it works.

For testing I'm using my 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi signal. Click on the image below for a high resolution image.

Current PlutoSDR status is here [link].


ADALM-PLUTO

Last Friday I purchased this small SDR. More updates when it arrives.

920kHz DX

Doing a long, overnight IQ recording of the medium wave for some serious post-processing later today.

Here we see 20 stations from North America on 920kHz, all within 20Hz.


 


Es'Hail 2

I'm watching the progress of Es'hail 2 with the satellite display in SDR Console. My plan is to put up a nice big dish and use the LimeSDR / bladeRF2 to access the first ham geostationary satellite.

This should be fun!


Release: 3.0.3
  • Added support for the bladeRF V2
  • Added Restart Manager support:
    • Enabled by default in the Start page of the Program Options
    • Not supported in Windows 7
    • If the computer is restarted and SDR Console is running, then SDR Console will be started with the same identity / radio
  • Added Viridis colour scheme
  • Added Digital Decoder:
    • Enabled via Ribbon Bar, View, More Options
    • (Old registry setting no longer used)
    • Still needs documentation
    • Works, needs improving
  • Added extra RSPduo startup logic (antenna-related).
  • Added Copy and Move options to the Playback Selection window, use these to copy / move entire recordings.
  • Optimised internal logic for analysing files used in data (IQ) recordings.

Here's the bladeRF 2.0 micro xA4 in action. 60MHz bandwidth, low CPU load. Still early days, but it works!

Viridis

The viridis scales provide color maps that are perceptually uniform in both color and black-and-white. They are also designed to be perceived by viewers with common forms of color blindness. [link to ggplot2]
