• 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:

I do not know what I am doing wrong, so maybe some one can help me. I have a 125 mhz up-converter. It used to work wonderfully with SDRsharp. I had the -125,000 in the shift, the up-converter in upconvert, and all the HF frequencies were spot on. I had been away from SDR for a while. I re installed SDR Sharp, followed the same set up. With the up-converter on, all the HF frequencies are coming in on the VFO at 129- 138.MHZ Turning on shift does nothing. If I tune down to the HF frequencies I get nothing.
What am I doing wrong? Have I forgotten a step? I upgraded to AirSpy and the same thing happens.
I am wondering if my old age (62) is making me dumb and I forgot something! The audio and reception is fine, just the numbers are off. Help!

I used sharp briefly but forget if there is a place for frequency offset. Usually it's in PPM (parts per million). That's the only thing I can think of.

You need to set the shift to -125,000,000 (125 MHz). You've set it to -125,000 (125 kHz).
