• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

    Airspy R2 and SDRTrunk not working at 10MHz

    I've been a scanner junkie for years and very recently decided to get into the SDR scene so I bought two of the cheap $20 RTL-SDR dongles from RTL-SDR.com and was able to get them working in SDRTrunk. I've learned a lot about these and how they work by reading the forums here and through Google...

    Hi all ! I am putting up this quick comparison with the hope that someone will have an airspy mini to verify if the unit can actually receive "clasic aero" acars signals. I am worried that I may have a sub-par or even faulty unit. There is also the possibility of firmware issue or hardware...

    SDRPlay should invest in writing software for thier product like Elad does for the FD

    Think about it Elad sells you a complete package for 500 dollars. The HW they designed and the software they wrote for it. ie: FDM-SW2 SDRPlay should be able to do the same thing, they developed the hardware, they should develop the software. This was one reason I never thought of buying the...

    Unitrunker Release 31

    Release 31 supports multiple VCOs and native USB support for the AirSpy. Supporting multiple VCOs required separating VCO specific settings from broader receiver settings. For SDRs, each VCO's frequency must fit inside the SDR's usable bandwidth. Other enhancements include the Hide feature...
