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.

  • ELAD S3 - It's Here Posted last week
    Yesterday I integrated SDR Console with a beta S3 receiver from ELAD. My first impression is that it's a terrific receiver and will be of great interest to SWPs, DX-ers and government origanisations. I'll make some videos later. With the front end wide-open there's no overload at all, despite a few close medium wave transmitters. A couple of screenshots: Manx Radio - 1368kHz   General Shortwave with a 20 MHz bandwidth!   Stay tuned for more updates.
  • Release: 3.0.17 Posted 2 weeks ago
    Download here [Link]. External Radio Added Up-converter offset support, used with Es'Hail-2 (QO-100). See: https://www.sdr-radio.com/Console/EsHail2   External radio window displays “Starting” while OmniRig is initialising. General Ensure all program components start sequentially: When DX Cluster is configured to starts when the program is launched it will no longer allow other processing until the cluster connection is established. DX Cluster and the External Radio were starting simultaneously and this was causing the program to freeze. Added sanity checks when defining filters:   Remote server: the connection window below is now much faster, especially when the remote server is hosting more than one SDR.   ANAN 10 – better (not perfect) display of output power. User calibration to come in a future kit. TX Meters now work better when automatically adjusting displayed ranges. TX display of ANAN PLL status changed to indicate when the PLL is stably locked. Remote server web page updated: https://www.sdr-radio.com/Software/Version3/Server LimeSDR Updated support library to latest Github code.
  • Release: 3.0.16 Posted 3 weeks ago
    Download here [Link]. Important changes for QO-100 user, see below. What's new / changed in 3.0.16: Display DX Cluster bug fixed so the connection / non-connection can always be closed. Added 'Always On Top' option when, when selected keeps SDR Console on top of all other applications.   The font used at the top of the RX and TX window has changed from non-proportional bold to proportional normal. This kit correctly saves / restores the collapsed / expended state of the panes in the RX and TX DSP panels. Added Program Lock.   With very high zoom levels the interpolation changes to use a cubic spline, in the image below see how round the spectrum curve is.   Converter Definitions Now support a TX offset as well as RX. The TX offset is shown at the top of the TX DSP panel.   The TX offset option has been removed. Has a QO-100 button which prepares a standard QO-100 definition. This affects QO-100 users - see https://www.sdr-radio.com/Console/EsHail2 and scroll down. Existing definitions are kept (not lost). ...
  • ELAD S3 - Soon Posted last month
    With any luck I'll have an ELAD S3 next week. Here is V3 playing a recording made by Nils, DK8OK using his S3. 24 MHz wide recording, 19.4 MHz usable!
  • Hermes Lite 2 Posted last month
    The Hermes-Lite is an outstanding low-cost direct down/up conversion software defined amateur radio HF transceiver based on a broadband modem chip and the Hermes SDR project. If you are looking for a small QRP transceiver with excellent performance for the price then consider HL2. Below are images of the build 9 boards published on the Hermes Lite mailing list by Steve KF7O. For more information visit the Hermes Lite page.
