SDRangel

Post by timberwolf » 03 Jul 2018, 17:56

Can anyone help please? I was awestruck by how easy & quick it was to download SDR Angel. Works well on Airband am and copes perfectly with nfm two-way simplex. I just can't get it to monitor & demodulate local dmr. Even though my Uniden 230 blasts out daleks-with-machine-guns, when I key-in the frequency, I get nothing. I can see the broadcast on the waterfall but after honing in on the signal there's zero. I can't even get the time-slot, colour-code & talk group (does anyone know how to make SDR Angel do that ???). If anyone can advise me what to do, I'd be eternally grateful.

I've changed radios that many times, I've forgotten what I have :think:

Thanks Drew
I appreciate the useful information. My next step is to track down a dll plug-in that decodes & displays the TS, CC & TG

Thanks again BRJ.

I'm such a ****. SDRangel works perfectly. My utterly inadequate antenna was the problem ! Decoding dmr vox perfectly. There's a single line field which displays what seems, at first glance, a random string of numbers and letters. Awesomely, it sub divides into Time Slot, CC, Radio ID and Talk Group. There's even a call log screen that captures all of this essential information for you ! Typical mobile to mobile chatter is perfectly clear, intelligible and streets ahead of analogue two-way traffic. In seconds I was monitoring security watching-over today's protest march against POTUS' visit to Scotland. If you've had previous issues with DSD + and the rigmarole of installing audio cables, then get SDRangel. It does exactly what you need it to in a quick-install, fast loading package. Just don't be tempted to enter frequency, TS, CC & TG into your Radioddity RD-5r ! No point in annoying any interesting DMR user (they'll just use an encrypted vocoder that will ruin it for all listeners !)

So easy enough to set up then ? Got a sdrplay rsp1 running sdr sharp or sdrplay and will check to see what spec my pc is as I believe it's got to be a certain spec for sdr angel to run x64 or whatever ? Once all installed pretty much plug and play to decode ? any advice would be great seeing as you have now successfully got it running yourself !!

P.s from the GitHub website what do I actually download for this software as I see several files ?
.... Icom IC7300 HF /6 mtr / Alinco DX70TH HF/6mtr / Kenwood TR751e 2mtr ssb... / Inrico TM7.
Ameritron ALS-600X SS HF Linear.... Cushcraft R6000 HF vertical / Hamtenna 80-10 mtr ocf dipole....... / Vine 5ele 6mtrs / Vine 10ele for 2mtrs.
Behringer xm8500 mic.
