I have successfully compiled and tested usbsoftrock-0.3 under Ubuntu 9.04 64 bits. Thanks Andrew for the great work!
It works beautifully with the UBW Emulator firmware v15.10 on a UBW. In fact this is the ONLY program that returns the filter crossover setting points of the LPF filters (in addition to the BPF filter crossover points) on my UBW !!! Fred has not updated his ExtIO.dll to read and set the LPF filters yet.
I now have a running SDR in Linux for Rx, using:
2. usbsoftrock for Si570 control
One problem I have not solved yet is the human audio output volume - it is quite soft, even when I set all output volume to maximum in alsamixer.
After I have fixed the monitoring audio output volume problem, I will attempt Tx.
I don't know python but I'll study Quisk to see how I can interface Quisk to usbsoftrock - so that Si570 control can be done in Quisk GUI itself.
