Nothing wrong with it and it will allow you to catch really fast phenomena because the maximum speed of the waterfall will be 1700 lines per second. The FFT size would be 64 only. That is the minimum size allowed in Linrad and the bin bandwidth will be 1.7 kHz. I suggest you set First FFT bandwidth (Hz) [12] which would give an fft size of 8192. > First forward FFT version [0] > First FFT storage time (s) [1] > First FFT amplitude [1000] > Main waterfall saturate limit [0] > Enable second FFT [1] As a newcomer you should set this to zero. Enable second FFT [0] As a consequence the following parameters will not be used: ------------------------------------------------ > First backward FFT version [0] > Sellim maxlevel [6000] > First backward FFT att. N [2] > Second FFT bandwidth factor in powers of 2 [2] > Second FFT window (power of sin) [2] > Second forward FFT version [0] > Second forward FFT att. N [6] > Second FFT storage time (s) [5] ------------------------------------------------- > Enable AFC/SPUR/DECODE (2=auto spur) [0] This is fine, wait until you are familiar with normal operation until you turn this on. These parameters become unused: -------------------------------------------------- > AFC lock range Hz [150] > AFC max drift Hz/minute [100] > Enable Morse decoding [0] > Max no of spurs to cancel [0] > Spur timeconstant (0.1sek) [5] -------------------------------------------------- > First mixer bandwidth reduction in powers of 2 [4] > First mixer no of channels [1] > Third FFT window (power of sin) [2] > Baseband storage time (s) [5] > Output delay margin (ms) [100] > Output sampling speed (Hz) [11025] > Default output mode [1] > Audio expander exponent [3] > A/D speed [138888] This value is not compatible with the sdr parameters you gave above. Your max waterfall speed would become 4300 lines per second at a bin resolution of 4.3 kHz. > Check [259] > > > After I save the parameters I can get a waterfall display, etc. > > The top reads 372500 373000 ... 375000, which I assume is frequency. > How do I change this to see the part of the spectrum I want? The general idea is use F1 help. Place the mouse outside any window and press F1. You will then see where all controls are. Then place the mouse one one control after the other and press F1 to read info about each one. You should then find the little window with four arrows and two numeric fields. The upper fiels is for setting the center frequency. Enter .025 to set the center frequency to 25 kHz. To see the full width of the spectrum and waterfall you may have to use the arrow boxes in the upper corners of the waterfall window. It could be a good idea to remove par_userint and select "newcomer mode" (new in linrad-03.06) by pressing 'N' rather than 'S' as the first entry. 73 Leif --~--~---------~--~----~------------~-------~--~----~ You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Linrad" group.
