Thanks for the help. I used the main.c file
provided by Kohjin - JR1EDE, to
successfully compile linrad and after editing /etc/ld.so.conf and running
ldconfig, I am now successfull in running
Now I have to figure out how to "use" the program
My long term goal is to use linrad to improve my
microwave receive capability, 900 MHz thru 10 Gigs, over distances up to
The transverters output is at 144 MHz, and I use
a DownEast Microwave converter to bring the second IF frequency down to 28 MHz
and a Kenwood TS-690 to bring the signal to baseband.
If I leave the TS-690 filters out my received
audio has a bandwidth of 12 KHz. for this configuration I assume that I
should sample at a frequency of about 24 KHz.
received audio goes from some low frequency X to X+12kHz. To
mirror image signals I assume you have to place the
passband at something
2 to 14 kHz. To avoid aliasing you should then place the
frequency at say 16kHz which means you should sample
at 32 kHz.
There may be some possibiliity of using the
TS-690 DSP interface to do better, but I don't yet understand how I might do
have no idea.
Would it be usefull to build a
receive interface circuit to generate two "channels" of audio from the
TS-690 and feed one into the left soundcard channel and the other into the
right soundcard channel?
you think 12kHz is not enough you can increase the bandwidth this way.
could get something like 40kHz bandwidth sampling I
and Q at 48kHz. With
anti-alias filters you can get up to about 46kHz
think 12kHz is enough to get started:-)

hope you will find the AFC function useful. It should allow you to
somewhat narrower filters to receive unstable
case you receive signals for which the functions of Linrad do
optimal, please make a recording (press S) and send an
the file is big I would like you to upload it somewhere,
attachments over 1 megabyte is a problem
think rain scatter could be one such case.
