I’ve been reading the other stories on this board with no luck and I’m losing my mind I think.
I got my LimeSDR Mini with the aluminum case last week and I’ve been excited to use it, over the past week I’ve been trying to get it working.
I am able to receive law enforcement, my keyfob and my wifi. But I can’t seem to receive Broadcast FM and NWS. I also can’t seem to hear any transmissions(Tested with a Baofeng, I can receive it but can’t talk to it.)
LimeQuickTest also fails on the last step.

I’m not sure what’s off. I’ve tried 4 different laptops of varying age and made sure I updated the firmware(LimeSDR-Mini_HW_1.2_r1.29.rpd)
Hopefully I can get a solution
