The RSP1A from SDR Play.

The RSP1A from SDR Play.

The latest offering from SDR Play has really hit the spot, with extra band filters including some for DAB and TXCO included..

SDR UNO has also had a a few tweaks, including the multi window start up instead of having to open each window one at a time.. there are also other tweaks with the addition of amateur band buttons..

I have a few ideas this month for projects using the RSP1A or RSP2 🙂

Don’t forget to have a look around the site as it has become very large! I am constantly adding things here and there, why not subscribe to my YouTube channel? 2018 is going to be a little more organised :-))

FT-8 USING A KENWOOD TS-590SG AND HRD AS A HOST!

FT-8 USING A KENWOOD TS-590SG AND HRD AS A HOST!

If your after a fool proof digital presence, them look no further than ft-8.. you don’t have to do a thing once its set up.

I found the easiest way to configure the WSJT-X software is use HRD as a host to control the radio, its so simple once its set up the rest is child’s play.

with 5 watts, our TS-590 was heard all over Europe on 20mtrs.. great fun mode and very easy to use, macro based.. once you have made a contact the software finishes the QSO for you..

FT-8 WSJT-X and a Yaesu FT450 or FT-DX-1200!

FT-8 WSJT-X and a Yaesu FT450 or FT-DX-1200!

FT-8 is becoming very popular, the WSJT-X software can be a bit of a nightmare to set up.. Using the entry level radios its really easy to get going with the AMAZING! RigbBlaster Advantage.. The RigBlaster works fantastically well with either the FT-450 or FTDX-1200 using the very popular WSJT-X! So I’ve put together a little document to help get either of these great little radios working; you can find it here.
