Re: [softrock40] SDR-Radio and rock-bound SoftRock
- Thanks, Alan. I did set the LO frequency without any problems.
It seems that the waterfall and spectrum scopes are constrained to be
centered on the LO frequency---and---if I change the frequency
resolution, it does not demodulate the portion of the waterfall
selected with the cursor, either.
Perhaps I will pull out the Ensemble VHF or get the v9.0 built later
today and I can see if the problem manifests itself there, too. Aside
from this annoyance, SDR-Radio appears to be an excellent piece of
Next project is to figure out how to get a competent IF tap on the
TS-930s...probably something involving subminiature coax, MMICs, and a

Yes, if you have RFspace equipment. I was enthusiastic when it first
appeared but not so much now.
It has the bare minimum of support for soundcard RXs, I may be wrong but I
doubt that it will get any better.
RFspace is not interested in giving anything away and not interested in
making it commercial software for soundcard SDRs.
Pieter has even hinted that it may be further disabled, that's hardly
