@jslatten - Justin,
Okay - so let’s start with some questions first and then I can answer back on that to help you get started. SDRAngel should work just as well as you see in the video - and if you’re not getting that, then there’s definitely a setup problem. First the questions:
1.) Are you using ZADIG to load the correct driver for the LimeSDR? SDRAngel is predicated on using ZADIG to load the driver (so you have to launch it and you have to select the LimeSDR before you launch SDRAngel)
2.) If you’re using ZADIG and you open SDRAngel, can you select your LimeSDR from the Source and Sink Device menu?
3.) If you have a LimeSDR selected as a source (receive) device, have you selected the LO antenna port connection (this is the only one that works for the app that I’m aware of)
4.) If you’ve loaded the LO antenna to be used, is there an SMA connection on the RX1 LO port (it’s just a cockpit error question).
5.) Have you adjusted the gain controls on the LimeSDR in AUT mode for 70 on the first adjustment, and then selected the MAN mode to adjust the settings to 32, 3, and 30 respectively?
5A.) Ensure that you have a demodulator selected (AM, SSB can be loaded and used simultaneously).
6.) Please set your sampling rate to 7.000.000
7.) Set the H pulldown menu to select 16, S pulldown menu to select 64
8.) Set the Low Pass Filter to a value of 099.000
9.) Set the FIR filter to 02.100
10.) Set the upper frequency adjustment from 435 MHz to 30 MHz (shown as 0.030.000)
10A.) Ensure that the NCO button is illuminated (selected) and also ensure that the DC button is also illuminated (selected), too.
11.) Set the actual tuned frequency to where ever you want it - - use 10.000 MHz (0.010.000) initially to hear WWV or tune to 7.000 MHz (0.007.000) to listen for CW signals and tune from there.
Let’s start with this and then let me know if you’re either hearing something or there are other issues - Here is a picture of a typical setup for HF on SDRAngel - - I’ll take some more setup pics tonight and post them, too - but for now, try to mimic this:
73 for now, Justin,
