Re: WeatherFax ...

your screenshot reveals a bug in the gui.


The rtlsdr support in weatherfax is currently half-baked.

Please don't, we all make those kinds of mistakes. Hope it is working now for you. ---Looks so.

Sean, thanks for your info. Perhaps you know what/how to fix it? Or do you need some testers?

Re: WeatherFax ...

Is anyone here playing with softwear defined radio for receiving SSB signals?

Done it with a raspberry pi running gqrx using a fun cube dongle. Recorded the audio then used jvcomm on a laptop to decode, after changing the bit rate of tbe file on tje Pi using SOX. Right on tbe edge of capacity for tbe Pi but it worked.

Congratulations

On my to do list is to get the funcube pro plus to work with opencpn and macOS Mojave I do have a pi2 to play with one day.

I will check out GQRX again

Opencpn supports the realtech dongles so it shouldn’t be too hard

See my post #1258 on this thread. I don't think the antenna needs to be as elaborate as I've described there.
Having said all that, I also followed RGleason's suggestion and installed HFWeather fax on a Smasung Galaxy smartphone and put it beside the little Degen radio I mentioned, and using just it's own telescopic antenna, it worked!!!

That's great. It's enough to have a good idea of the weather.
