Elad FDM-S2, last version SDR Sharp operative?

Post by tomas112 » 21 Jul 2018 14:13

Hi all
I recently bought an Elad FDM-S2, and like I'm a sdr sharp software enthusiast this is my question ;) . My RSP2Pro (located in the remote listening station) is working with the SDR# version 1361, and to this day it's perfect. I would like to run my Elad with RDS Spy and with other plugins, it is possible?. FDM-SW2 is a good software but for FMDX it does not seem very effective. I think that RDS Spy is better for DX, the reading of the PI code is faster with RDS Spy .
Does any friend have the last ExtIO file of SDR Sharp for the Elad?. I have seen some videos in which version 1357 or 1332 is operative with Elad. Maybe it's about loading some version of the extio files from the official Elad website?.
Please, help me. I'm clumsy and my English is poor, bad combination!!. However as amateur dx i am a fanatic :D

Regards

You can run RDS Spy with the Elad FDM-S2 software. Search this group as it has been documented how to set up that combination

Hi Tomas,

RDSspy and the Elad work well together you will need Virtual Audio Cable or similar and set up a connection @ 192 khz you will also need to send WBFm Mux out to VAC in the settings of the elad software.

This video shows how but there are more detailed explanations somewhere on this forum.

If you search this forum for WBFM you will find the posts explaining how to set up Elad software, VAC and Spy.

Thanks so much everybody!!!
RDSspy is working with FDM-SW2 now. But I remain committed to using my SDRSharp version 1361 with my Elad. Where can I get the ExtIO file that i need?. Do I need to modify files like "FDM-S2 (1).extio_elad_fdms2_768K_V3", or "....1536K_V...", etc?. Would someone please explain to me?.
Excuse me so much insistence.
Thanks in advance.

I don't believe v1361 (or later) will work with Elad. The SDR# author removed support. You have the correct extio* files. You just need to find an earlier version than 1361 of sdr#.

SDR# Version 1361 works fine here with the EladExtio.6.144.dll and RDSSPY.

You can download here the Elad.dll's for third party software such as SDR#, HDSDR.

Thank you very much to all
Everything is working perfectly, SDRSharp v1361 with SDRSpy, thanks to the dll file "extio_elad_fdms2_6144_V3_00.dll" (my O.S. is windows 7) :D
Now I just have to install everything in August in my remote station :lol:
Thank you so much everyone again
