Due to the situation with getting a limesdr, I bought a ‘once used’ unit online. It passes self tests. I’ve removed MN18, 402 size is a little beyond my comfort level. But it’s removed. I didn’t get the results I hoped for, so I resoldered the 2 caps next to it to be sure I didn’t disconnect them. Ohm meter says they are connected, and confirms they are not shorted.
I’m native to Linux and use sdr++, but I have tried in windows with sdr++, sdrconsole, cubic, and one other. I’m using a amplified loop, 80M and 40M are dead during the day right now. But I receive nothing below 25mhz. I had an SDRPlay that worked quite well.
I do get a elevated noise level when selecting RX1_L
Nothing on the AM broadcast band.
I can’t receive any of the WWV stations.
I’ve found an FM broadcast station around 25mhz
I still have my limesdr on order from crowdsupply, but don’t know if I have a problem, this limesdr has a problem, or what is going on.
Thanks for any advice, Cory
