    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.

When I start HDSDR, the waterfall shows a wideband signal in the center of the display and I hear muffled audio. Also, the S meter is pegged. I thought the built in laptop microphone was the problem. I disabled it however the problem did not go away. It makes no difference what frequency is tuned.

I would appreciate any suggestions on curing the problem.
Thanks and 73, Bob, KN4HH

Hi Bob,

it would help a lot to know what SDR and sound hardware you are using.
I'm surprised that you are using the laptop's mic input!?
Please send a screenshot of your centered wideband signal and what soundcard settings your are using.

kind regards,
LC

PS: if screenshot is not possible over RadioReference, then please email it directly: lc@hdsdr.de

Sorry for the delay. The problem turned out to be in my audio mixer software on the pc. Once I selected the correct audio path, the receiver works fine. BTW I am using a RT820T Dongle receiver with a Ham It Up converter. Other than lots of birdies ( I assume because I do not have the board in a shielded container), I am quite pleased with the performance.

Thanks for your willingness to help.
Bob
