Re: Elad FDM-S2 Vs Sony XDR-F1HD - Initial Comparison

I agree with you John.
Well, I can't complain on my S2 on band II but due to my (very) poor location and antenna set-up I'm not in a position to say whether it's a great or a fair performer. I hope to move soon, then to install a decent antenna + preamp.

Re: Using RDSSpy with SDR Software

Hi mates !

Regarding VAC : do you have to replace the default values of the audiorepater each time ?
There's no "save settings" feature, hence 'wave in', 'wave out' and 'sample rate' need to be set when I want to use RDS spy ..

Re: Elad FDM-S2 Vs Sony XDR-F1HD - Initial Comparison

Comments are a bit confusing sometimes !!!

Mike states : "You can't beat the Elad but SDRPlay comes close" ; David claims : "SDRPlay is much more sensitive than an Elad".

Re: SDR Play vs and R820T2 RTL dongle

Hi Stuart,

Sightly O.T : I plan to visit Carcassonne area once again (to maybe settle there later) in about 2 weeks.
I spent 3 days there last year, without any decent radio, but it looks like it's a fine province for DX'ing ;-)

Re: New features on FM List

I also use AirScout from time to time, and predictions are quite OK for me.
The main problem here is the crowded band ; this leaves very few 'free frequencies' for clean AS receptions :-(

Re: New features on FM List

Hi John,

The AirCalc feature won't work here :-(
The overview shows a list of "potential candidates" but selecting one of them gives an 'error 5!' message on a blank page.
Same happens when entering a frequency from 'MyFM' page and clicking AirCalc.

Re: Advice for a 2nd SDR

David : do you own an ELAD ?
If so, could you please record a short video showing the reception of a weak station using both SDR ? (or at least an audio file). I'd actually like to get an idea of how much sensitive is the SDRplay compared to the ELAD.

Re: Advice for a 2nd SDR

Thanks for the useful comment David. I didn't expect SDRplay to be "much more sensitive" than the ELAD ... Due to its "poor" dynamic range, I thought, at best, they would be on par. As for the software, I'm either using Studio 1 or SDR console (V2.3) and of course ELAD native sof...

Advice for a 2nd SDR

Hello mates, I'm new to the group. My name is Patrick, and I'm currently living in the french Alps. I'm thinking of an alternative SDR. Assuming I already own an ELAD FDM-S2, what would be the point of purchasing a cheaper SDR such as a SDRplay or an AIRSPY for portable operations ? Compared to the ...
