The new Version of SDR-Console V3 is now out in preview, for everyone to download, it's well worth a look, it will install in its own folder independent of v2.3 so you can run together, not all options are added yet... but as simon said, it's a taste of things to come...






The LimeSDR

Looks like there will be a new SDR player in town soon, the LimeSDR.... 100Khz - 3.8Ghz this is going to be one to watch, no prices yet, but the specifications seem good, we are waiting with baited breath for the results of any tests, I hope the company will provide windows API's and ExTIO interfaces so that many of the SDR users already out there can take advantage of this radio.


Specs: Key components:

  • LMS7002M Lime Microsystems Transceiver with continuous Frequency range of 100 kHz – 3.8 GHz (Datasheet)
  • Cyclone IV EP4CE40F23 Altera FPGA (Datasheet) also compatible with EP4CE30F23
  • USB3 CYUSB3014-BZXC Cypress Microcontroller (Datasheet)
  • 4 x TxOut and 6 x RxIn U.FL connectors for RF cables
  • microUSB3 connector or plug, external power supply (optional) and status LEDs
  • 256 MBytes of DDR2 SDRAM (Datasheet)
  • Size:  100 mm x 60 mm
  • Interface: USB3 for control,  data transfer and power
  • Power Output (CW): up to 6.5 dBm
  • Covering: Wi-Fi, 2G, 3G, LTE, any other air interfaces



I think this could be a great device if the company support it right and don't just tie it to GNURadio, if the TX side is using the OpenHPSDR protocols, the SDR-Console V3 should be able to support the TX also...

Sdr-console V3 Testing.

Doing some testing on SDR-Console V3, prior to its UTP#1 (User Technical Preview) release on March 25th. Simon has done a fantastic job on the new version, and today I'm playing with the SSB squelch which has been much anticipated since earlier versions. Running the SDRPlay RSP as 5Mhz bandwidth.



ADS-B on the SDRPlay RSP

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

SDRPlay released an ADS-B driver for the RSP and ADS-B signals, to allow the RSP for use on aircraft tracking, I set one of my RSP's up for feeding the data to FlightRadar24, if you send a data feed to FR24, you get a FREE Premium account. Seems to be working quite well, range is about the same as using a RTL Dongle to decode, but the aircraft tracking total seems to be greater. Below image is Dump1090_SDRplay feeding Virtual Radar Server, which then feeds out to FR24feeder. Will have it running 24/7 will update will stats later...

So these are the remaining countries/entities that I need.... 22 remaining, some are not so rare, just never on at the same time, need to make a more concerted effort, like Macao & Bangladesh, but some I may never get to work, like North Korea or Syria.



So far, since 2001 I have worked 323 Countries/Entities, so I'm getting close...
