Problems with limesdr + gnuradio
#3

Hi @cmrincon,

Arrange RMA with Crowd Supply, please.

#4

Hi @ThatGreeneDude,

Arrange RMA with Crowd Supply, please.

#5

Should the antenna cables change the test result?
I use 50 ohm 10 cm long cable and With cable i got ~ -26dbfs, without cable ~ -20 dbfs.
I discovered that Temperature modify the results also.

Is the result fine? Should i arrange a RMA?

#6

On LimeSDR-USB antennas or cables connected to RF port affect test results so the test should be performed without anything connected.
