67711Re: Built Peaberry SDRs available
- Aug 17, 2012Hi David,
According to your advice, I joined this group.
As you know, I've already build my Peaberry and
now I'm trying to setup some SDR software.
Although I thought that my Peaberry worked perfectly with HDSDR,
transmitting operation in phone mode seems to work not perfectly.
eg. in USB mode, Lo=14.290MHz Tune=14.300MHz, Mic=1kHz sine wave,
then RF output appears at both 14.299MHz and 14.301MHz.
In CW mode, there is no image output (a little bit image exactly).
Since a setup of HDSDR may be mistaken,
I will check it tomorrow.
If someone knows the solution, please let me know.
