Assorted ramblings from the developer

Release: 3.0.2


Some of the early V3 code was not as efficient as it should have been - the Windows message pump was working too hard. Messages have been replaced with callacks and high-precision timers, as a result performance and CPU load on lower-powered computers such as the Core2Duo and mobile CPUs has improved, sometimes quite dramatically.

Additions / Fixes

  • Added Favourite Definition Groups. You can now have up to 5 optional sets of Favourite definitions as well as the Default. More below…
  • Added single-tuner RSPduo support.
  • Changing spectrum colours now updates the RX DSP pane if the pane is floating.
  • Latest HF+ library now in use.
  • Issues clicking on main window splitter causing areas of the display to go white (not be painted) resolved.
  • Fixed issues setting recording options via the Program Options.
  • Reduced Airspy / Airspy HF+ latency.
  • Satellite custom name definitions can now be undone.

Outstanding Bugs

  • Restarting doesn’t restore the filter width, this always reverts to the default for the last used mode.


Favourite Definition Groups

Select from the Defns panel in the ribbon bar, Defns is only shown if you have enabled one or more definitions groups.

In the Organiser select the Definitions, click … to define groups (top of window, see below).

    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!
