The SDR-IQ is stated as useable down to 100Hz.  I know about the low
freq rolloff.

I think the signal level from NLK in my area is about -50dbm.
I am unsure of the measurement, this is the value from the SV calibrated screen.

I am not using a sound card, only the SDR-IQ.

Is it possible to get a waterfall display with the SDR-IQ?

I have connected the SDR-IQ to my 12x12x36", 21 turn loop.  I can see
several VLF stations in the FFT (is spectrum right word?) display.  I
cannot see the waterfall display, it seems blank.
