I reinstalled everything on Ubuntu (as this is supported by packages).
Everything looks OK, I can make the self test, I can update the firmware of the LimeSDR, etc.
But I am a newbie to Lime.
I have not done the easy HF fix (yet), as I wanted to explore the behaviour of the LimeSDR before altering it.
I have connected a small antenna to LNAL.
I have looked at 900 and 100 MHz.
I have done the same with a cheap 20 USD rtl-sdr dongle.
Here are the results:
The same is true for FM broadcast radios.
Very, very strong ones can be barely decoded by the LimeSDR.
The RTLSDR works perfectly, and I get extremely good SNR.
With Lime even the strong ones barely rise above the noise floor.
Did I receive a defective unit?
Do I need to make some adjustments in LimeSuite in order to make it work??
At the moment it is completely DEAF!!
Please help me ... I have no clue if I am doing something wrong, or if my HW is defective.
