    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:

AstroSpy, where is the frequency adjustment?

Using AstroSpy in release 1483 I see Integration, Min, Max, Gain and Syle but no means to adjust the actual center frequency.


EDIT: nevermind I got AstroSpy and SpectrumSpy confused.

So, just discovered this on my laptop.

I have both Airspy models, but can't seem to find a reason for the AstroSpy software, other than it can help SETI in the search for Alien life. Is there a manual or text file on how and what to do to make this useful ?

Thanks in advance

It's useful in radio astronomy, for looking at at a specific frequency in L-band, over time. If you want to work out how fast a nebulae is moving away from us but it's behind a dust cloud, then its hydrogen line emissions are a good place to look. Astrospy simply shows these hydrogen emissions. Point an antenna at the Milky Way for a while and see.
