… Follow-up to last nights discussion on the Net re: SDR# and those cheap dongles ….
Okay you’ve got your dongle.
Here is what I did one evening not too long ago.
0) read this
1) downloaded and installed 7zip . (be careful NOT to to let it install the extra “junk”)
2) Download and setup ZADIG. These are the drivers.
3) Download and install SDR#
4) Read the “short guide” to calibrate the dial on the SDR.
I have not calibrated my dial yet.
NOW : CAVEAT, Dan Woods mentioned on the net he had a faster way. That sounds great. I read some stuff on the web that said some legal heartburn was being caused by bundling drivers with SDR#. So I don’t know where the all-iin-one file is now.
I can get the NOAA WX near 162.550 and other good stuff … I’d like to listen to airplanes too…
Bring your dongle down to Radio Shack with a print out of the above page.
Maybe this fits …. Or not !
