I understand about soapy_power.
Really appreciate these kinds of visual tools as an RF newcomer.
I don't run arch or windows. But whenever I see PyQtx mentioned I grimace a little bit only because it has caused headaches in the past. Although it has gotten better.
Also I cannot see any reason why running QSpectrumAnalyzer from a python virtual env would not work. I have installed everything so far except PyQt4. (i am doing things different than below)
All it takes is to do these things:
python3 -m venv /path/to/py3virt
pip install QSpectrumAnalyzer
The advantages of a python virtual env are:
- no sudo needed
- leave the native OS python install alone
- can easily remove and recreate python virtual envs
- can create many python envs and easily switch between them
