External 192 kHz soundcards

Post by jotagarzon »

Hi,
I would like to take the FM audio from some of my portables and get the RDS code with a laptop+RDSspy. Are anyone using external 192 kHz sampling souncards? Would you recommend some of these devices?

Thank you in advance!

There is no guarantee that the audio output from a radio will have the 57 KHz sub-carrier signal present. My Tecsun PL380 does not provide an audio signal that carries the required supersonic RDS sub-carrier and neither do my Sony or Yamaha analogue tuners.

Before buying a sound card I suggest you connect the radio(s) you want to try to the mic input of your laptop and set the input to 192 kHz sampling rate. You will have an audio manager option in the Windows control panel should let you set the sampling rate to 192kHz.
