@AA7QQ - Ed,
Hey - I’m not sure if I mentioned that PiHPSDR (for a Raspberry Pi) is set to work with the Lime but not entirely certain if HF has been worked on it or not. I need to confirm that and I will this evening and let you know. There is also a ‘companion’ app for Linux called LinHPSDR that is not currently developed for the Lime, but has all the hooks for it in the code. The Ham that manages both of these code areas is John Melton, G0ORX, and I will give him a ping and see if he’s close to getting this to run on the Lime. It’s not Windows, but it does play on a PC under Ubuntu 18.04. Again, I need to confirm that it works with the LimeSDR on PiHPSDR for HF…I will check that out tonight.
I share your grief with this. I have A TON of time invested in the LimeSDR and all the while the developers are all going mad developing QO-100 (Es’Hail) capability into their code that works with the Lime, but not even giving HF a look. You cannot know how hard I’ve hammered on this to get something or someone to get HF transmit working on the Lime on Windows - but Simon just won’t work it for SDRConsole - the reasoning behind it is very unclear and the stumbling blocks have been taken away (meaning, I’ve told him in no uncertain terms that the LimeSDR operates in HF as well as some commercially made radios if given the chance).
Don’t give up just yet - this SDR is still the widest banded SDR out there - no other SDR comes close in terms of tuning and performance. We just have no one interested or focused on this despite $700 being on the line to give to the first developer who can prove a working app for the Lime that does HF transmit and receive…it’s just astounding. 2 years and…nothing. Yet the technological barriers are greatest (The Lime has no 10 GHz capability unless they have an LMS-8002) where they’re all spending their time (QO-100 aka Es’Hail).
I’ll keep banging the drum…
