Have a working SDR-IQ system and software such as SpectraVue.
Install Virtual Audio Channel (VAC).
There is a license free Dream version 1.17 DRM, but no audio supported.
Have been doing a lot of comparing the last few weeks with version 1.12b
and 1.13. Version 1.17 is by far the better version and has a wider
selection of options. Sourceforge has this version 1.17 Dream DRM
Receiver that is free to download and use at
Install Dream 1.17 - or what ever
Whats the catch? Version 1.17 dosent support audio with out the right
dll file. Once the correct dll is put into the same directory that Dream
DRM is installed in, there is audio on DRM signals.
To get a working dll file do the following:
Download the Software Radio program file named SoDiRa
Inside that program zipped file is a dll named libfaad2.dll. Save this file
some where, and make a copy that you will rename to faad_drm.dll.
It is 232 kb in size. Put the rename file into the root folder with Dream
version 1.17 and you will have a full functional program with audio.
Here is where that info is available, but it is all over the web.
Start SpectraVue to run the SDR-IQ and configure the output audio to use
Line1 (virtual audio cable) for example. Select WUSB and in Settings set
a 12kHz width.
Start VAC control panel. Minimize after running.
Start Dream. Configure Dream to use Sound Card - Signal Input - Device
- Line 1 (virtual audio cable).
Tune in a strong DRM settings in SpectraVue. Better than S7 if you can.
Put DRM wave pattern in to right of center in bandwidth marker guides.
In Dream under View, open the view tab and choose evaluation dialog.
That separate panel will give you the options and displays on how well
To view and update the station schedule list, under dream panel, select
tab and choose Stations dialog. That will give you either a old list, or
option to down load a current list. The panel for the Station Schedule List
will have an update option.
