Assorted ramblings from the developer


Release: 3.0.4

Download here [Link].

What's new / changed in 3.0.4:

SDRs

  • ADALM-PLUTO transmit and receive support added.

  • Airspy HF+ support library upgraded to latest release, CPU usage now much lower.

  • Airspy HF+ supports pre-production units properly, also units with old / original firmware.

  • ANAN code given a lot of attention, working much better.

  • bladeRF2 now checks that the frequency is within the supported range.

  • Lime transmit support added.

General

New

  • Added Pseudo Stereo (ribbon bar, Receive, Mode..., Pseudo Stereo).

  • Downconverter supports frequencies up to 999.9 GHz.

  • Frequency database supports a Custom CSV layout.

  • Frequency display supports frequencies up to 999.9 GHz.

  • If there are no receivers a warning is displayed.

  • Signal History - added Slower and Very slow.

Fixes

  • Audio buffering logic updated (the way I maintain the buffer between demodulation and the playback / VAC device). This is simpler, cleaner and gives me a good base for the future. See the Playback Buffering page for options.

  • Audio recording – a check is made that the folder exists before the recording is started.

  • Fixed spectrum display in Auto mode when input signal is very low / zero.

  • Fixed crash adjusting the Span (bottom of display).

  • Fixed crash caused by a change in output device options such as enabling spatial sound.

  • Fixed obscure bug in the Select Radio user interface.

  • Fixed SAM demodulation, PLL was not working fast enough.

  • More visibility/sanity checks when restoring a window position (example: Select Radio).

  • Obscure fatal bug saving/recalling complex Favourite definitions fixed.

  • Product name and date now always shown at the top of the main display with all display styles (long-standing MFC bug fixed).

  • More logic in coding where the program priority is raised when the system starts.

  • If the signal is muted due to input overload a warning icon is now shown in the status bar, previously just the Auto Mute text was shown. (This caught me out a couple of times).

Recording Scheduler

  • Interface redesigned, simplified with no loss of functionality.

Satellite

Display

  • Now displays correct TX mode in the main window's ribbon bar tooltips.

  • Now uses fixed point fonts for name and times.

  • Fixed fatal error selecting a world map which cannot be opened.

  • External Radio now supports both Rig 1 and Rig 2.

  • TLE data now has better sanity checking.

Server

  • Reduced dangling connections on the server.

  • Release: 3.0.10 Posted 5 days ago
    Download here [Link]. What's new / changed in 3.0.10: General Audio device dropdown now shows a check mark next to the current device and L/R channel selection. SDRplay radios – sanity check that the default frequency is valid – must be in the range 10 kHz to 2 GHz. previously a user started with the default frequency of 10Ghz which is not supported by the SDRplay library. FM Stereo RDS logging was not working properly with multiple active receivers. Fixed a long-standing bug in the tuning bar at the bottom of the main waterfall; this was an error which existed since the code was originally written over four years ago. A determined fool-hardy user could expose the problem and crash the program. Scrolling at 8.333 kHz with rapid middle wheel spinning works properly. Identity title now optionally shown in the program title bar. DSP More taps available for filters. Corrected DSB filter editor. Narrow FM de-emphasis redesigned to avoid audio pumping. NR3 reworked. Threshold changed to Level, working much better. Filters: Changed appearance of the Filter design window. ...
  • E's To Morocco Posted 3 weeks ago
    A very nice opening this morning to Morocco on Band II Stereo (88 - 108MHz).
  • Simon's World Map 1.0.8 Posted last month
      Download here [link].   I wrote this program because I wanted to see: Current Time (local, GMT) Sunrise / Sunset Greyline map DX stations There are commercial geo clock solutions such as the excellent Geochron, but as a programmer with spare HD monitors and computers I decided to write my own, that way I have exactly what I want. Anyway, this weekend I finally found time to update Simon's World Map to version 1.0.8. Here's what is new: Installs a 64-bit executable on 64-bit Windows, previously the 32-bit executable was used on 64-bit Windows. Text colour in Clock, Sunrise / Sunset etc. is user-selectable. Sunrise / sunset shown for entries in the station list. Timezone markers updated It doesn't need much CPU at all- anything running Windows 7 or higher is fine.
  • Airspy HF+ Discovery Posted last month
    Listening to France Musique, a station whose output is sorely missed in the UK. Using the latest little stunner from Airspy.
  • Release: 3.0.9 Posted last month
    Download here [Link]. Note: The main reason for this release is the fixes to transmit with the Pluto SDR. What's new / changed in 3.0.9: General The 8.333 kHz tuning rate wasn’t working properly as it’s really 8.333 recurring. The Analyser now correctly processes the Invert Spectrum option (swap IQ from the recording file). The Ribbon Bar, Home. Radio, Bandwidth dropdown now shows the currently selected bandwidth when using radios where the actual bandwidth may differ slightly from the displayed bandwidth (Perseus at 95, 96 and 192kHz). The bit smoothing option in RDS processing was not being set correctly. USB Relay option now also part of the general Program Options. Broadcast FM audio recordings now always created in stereo (two channel) mode – previously the recording was restarted every time the audio switched between mono and stereo. RDS logfile now has a delay option in the Database selection pane, this is designed to be used in situations where there is considerable latency, for example when using a remote server. Pluto Transmit data is now controlled by a high-resolution timer with an accuracy ...
