Assorted ramblings from the developer


Release: 3.0.5

Download here [Link].

Note: 3.0.5 fixes / enhances the support for PlutoSDR.

What's new / changed in 3.0.5:

General

  • Transmit support enabled for frequencies above 4GHz.
  • Receive support error fixed, now works above 4.2GHz.
  • Transmit NFM now has configurable deviation and maximum frequency:
  • Added Synchronous AM demodulation DC correction.
  • If a radio was Stopped / Started with Tone enabled then subsequent transmission was unreliable – either no output or very low output. This problem resolved by resetting the Tone and Tune options in the transmit window when stopping a radio.
  • Cosmetic: program size now optionally shown in status bar (bottom right), this option is enabled in Program Options (bottom right):
  • Cosmetic: receive DSP Mode selection window […] improved:
  • Cosmetic: Select Identity window optionally shown when program starts now has the title correctly updated:

Pluto

  • More sanity checks when connecting to a device.
  • Pluto can now be accessed using the IP address, the default is ip:192.168.2.1 URI (format), the Pluto IP address can be changed as required.
  • Recoded the Pluto transmit thread – now more reliable.
  • Transmit data is correctly buffered so there are fewer glitches when sending data.
  • Added bandwidths which use the AD9363's decimation/interpolation. These bandwidths are 500 kHz ... 1.5 MHz.
  • Added extra pane to Receive DSP (below), temperature is recorded for RX and TX:

    You can export the data to CSV file, in Excel you can then create a chart like this:

Frequency Database

  • Fixed frequency database Language field, an incorrect 0 was shown at the start of the language name.
  • Added support for new AOKI frequency database layout.

Satellites

  • Current satellite name is shown in main window title.
  • Tracks are now optionally displayed for entries in the Satellites List (top of ribbon bar).

  • 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. ...

    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.

    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 ...
