Limesdr mini with SDRsharp


Thank you for your work.
I installed the plugin successfully but i’m not able to see my Limesdr mini in the settings menu.


Add this file to SDR# root folder


The same problem here. The tetra plugin works fine (audio decoding included) when using a RTLSDR-Blog v3 dongle but it doesn’t seem to work with the LimeSDR plugin (the WFM audio is not muted and no decoded calls are heard).

just received my LimeSDR mini and trying to use it with sdr# ver. 1672.
I copied SDRSharp.LimeSDR.dll from Goran repository to my sdr# directory but when I start it LimeSDR is not within the sources recognized!
any help is appreciated!!!

Claudio, did you follow instruction from github? Did you add line for LimeSDR into frontend config file and copy Limesuite.dll into SDR# folder?

thanks Goran: now it works!
the first time I visited I didn’t see the .DLL…
now I have to find out how to set the 4 gain settings!

Everything is working except with TETRA Demodulator plugin. Would be nice to have this feature working. Thanks!!


good evening Goran,
I am receiving the wideband transponder of the QO-100 satellite (Es’hail-2).
I would like to use a Sample Rate around 8000000 as this is the bandwith of the channel.
is it possible to have it?

im 'tdbone1" in this thread.
you might find some good info in there.


thanks Goran: it seems it works!

the large hump on the left is the 2MS/s DATV beacon while the smaller one on the right (~747.5MHz) is a 333KS/s DATV signal.
the spike in the center should not be there! the “Correct IQ” feature is useless.
now I have to try to enlarge/expand the vertical scale so that I can easily read 1 dB…
my target is something similar:



thanks en1gma: I will read it later.



@yt7pwr - Goran,

Any updates on HF capability in transmit for the LimeSDR USB and Lime Mini using your spin of SDRSharp? Keep me advised -

Almost finished but the daily job is a priority.


I slightly fixed the GUI and minor inaccuracies in the gain block.
If interested, use


Hi netdog and thanks! Going to try it now.
My main concern with gorans’ plugin was that it’s not able to pipe data to plugins such as aux audio (for use with dsd) and tetra dec. I read somewhere that it’s some kind of sdrsharp ‘whitelist’ at play here. Is there any way around it? Thank you!


Strange. Theoretically, the Frontend Driver should not affect the output. I don’t know about tetra, but DSD + runs on an Input Audio Device (such as a microphone or Virtual Audio Cable - Output, which is redirected to VB Cable Input)
Or how are you trying to get an audio source in DSD?


Yes but if i try using ‘aux audio’ plugin which enables both hearing with speakers and piping to vbcable simulteneously. Yes it works if i pipe main sharp out to dsd.


I do not understand what you have there for the problem. I just checked and everything works fine.
Maybe you have another plugin? then give a link to it.

I also want to say that if you want to hear a signal, in Windows on Input devices you can start playback through any Output device.
Also in Windows there is a Stereo Mixer (Input / Output) device, which seems to be turned off by default but it is easy to turn it on, but it also allows you to create some magic like VB cable :slight_smile:
