11th Aug videos, MS & troposcatter

A) Ukhozi FM troposcatter with full RDS on a vertical dipole 11th Aug.
NB Both fmlist and fmscan have this listed as Umhlobo Wenene FM. The RDS is, however, listed correctly.

Re: RX-666 new 32 MHz SDR

Bjarne Mjelde (Norway) has done an evaluation. The PDF is available on here:http://arcticdx.blogspot.com/

You will need a downconverter for 32MHz on the FM band eg Perseus FM+ if you have one in a drawer somewhere.

Re: MSi.SDR working in SDRsharp 17xx with RDS Spy

Hi Peter, Nice to see an example of the MSi SDR actually working on FM - I'm thinking of upgrading my RTL-SDRs that are used for background scanning - but a new PC will come first. It must be pointed out that you are not using the official SDRPlay EXTio dll, but a third party version that works aro...

SDRuno IQ file playback in HDSDR v2 80 with RDS Spy

SDRuno has a mediocre RDS decoder, and it doesn't work with RDS Spy.
Playback of SDRuno IQ files is possible in HDSDR v2.80 which is compatible with RDS Spy.

Re: RX-666 new 32 MHz SDR

Comment pasted here Franco Venturi August 3, 2020 at 8:30 am Quick update: – the seller answered back saying that the upgraded crystal is the 0.1PPM TCXO – the same AliExpress store has also the (better named) RX888 SDR receiver: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4001294301962.html – the RX888 too is ...
