Welcome to my SDRPlay RSPDX. This receiver is located just south of the town of Evesham in Worcestershire UK. It is perched on the south side of Bredon Hill which is a large hill in between the Cotswold Hills and the Malvern Hills. This hill is registered as a SOTA (Summits on the air) location which demonstrates its advantages for VHF/UHF Radio. The antennas are situated between 160ft and 175ft above ground level giving the SDR a clear advantage to the north, east and south. West side specifically south west is shielded by the summit of the hill so we do sometimes struggle for signals into the Devon/Cornwall and South Wales areas.
Due to restrictions in the GT driver, I recommend always using AGC and NB options whilst in use, this will get the most out of the RSPDX
The discone works well on VHF/UHF, it will RX on HF and AM but please note it also picks up some noise on these bands which cannot be avoided due to proximity of other equipment.
Please log any frequencies received in the user log. I will try and get the antenna switch working on the GT interface soon. Finally please note I may take the node down at times for personal use 😊

Current setup is a Royal Discone antenna on port B (default) and a VHF horizontal dipole in port A. RX is a SDRPlay RSPDX – Running into a Windows 10 Core i7 PC which hosts several other SDRPlay’s - Discone and Dipole covered in Ice, one of the risks of antenna’s at height. - There are other antennas which feed into my other SDR’s including a Diamond X300 Vertical and a ¼ Mobile whip for 11m with ¼ ground planes.

14/3/21 - Some changes made to SDRPlays EXTIO driver. Raised Setpoint and changed to LowIF, some changes should be seen with better weak signal reception.
