• 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:

    usb hub

    I use a bunch of Anker powered USB3 hubs. Not as cheap as the amazon basics, not as expensive as some of the other options. Some are the 'vertically' stacked ports (ie. long edge above long edge) and some 'horizontally'. In both layouts there are problems with some types of 'dongles' (all work...

    AOR 8200 Original (mark 1?) PC cable

    You can add what you want ...in this case I had already mentioned that there were changes (though without the specifics as the OP was talking about the original unit). AR86CTL works under windows 7 here. JAOR and ARC8200 also.

    dsdplus fastlane and sdr sharp problem

    What do you mean by 'fastlane'? DSDPlus has no interest in your RTL device - it deals with audio data. Most people will use a varaint of FMP to control their tuner device and that will route the audio via TCP to DSD or else they'll use virtual audio cables to get audio into DSD.

    DSD+ Fastlane and RSPDuo

    Yes you can use both tuners at the same time with DSD. Using SDRConsole or sdruno you can control both tuners and using virtual audio cables feed DSD instances. However, you probably asked the wrong question and really meant something like: "Can FMPP utilise both tuners in an RSPduo...

    New Release - DSD+ 2.183

    The sdrplay_api.dll was introduced in 2p169 along with FMPP ie. a specific FMP variant for SDRplay and a custom dll to support it. At that time support was stated for one of the SDRplay device types (the RSP2) and almost immediately an updated dll and FMPP made available separately as bug fixes...

    Radio waves travel in straight lines so you could easily be limited by terrain near you...For example if you are in Wasdale Head you'll struggle to get anything...on the other hand if you are on Walney or in Silloth you'd likely get a good mix of traffic. Equally, the quality of your antenna...

    AOR 8200 Original (mark 1?) PC cable

    Another thing to bear in mind is that the auxilliary socket connections are different on the black-cased models (AR8200II onwards). Your cable was specifically made for the original model (AR8200, green case) and would need to be modified before use with the AR8200II and AR8200III if you ever...

    AOR 8200 Original (mark 1?) PC cable

    It would be audio OUT of the AR8200 and therefore INTO the 3.5mm audio input on your PC (for decoding applications). If the docking station for your PC already has a 9pin serial port then it's probably got a USB<>Serial adapter built in but is missing the driver. Check the makers website for...

    AOR 8200 Original (mark 1?) PC cable

    The RS-8200 was Jonathan's own interface. Never looked in one but presumably a MAX232 series chip and a couple of resistors /capacitors. The extra plug was likely to be for unfiltered audio - it's available on the accessory socket but I don't think it was utilised on the interface AOR marketed.

    FMP24 Base Latitude/ Longitude

    It's used with the frequency lists. In practice you'd set it to your monitoring location and also set the range that you'd expect to receive signals from. See the FMP.txt file for config explantion. If not using the frequency lists you can safely leave those lines alone.
