DV4mini RPi Image Update

I’ve created an updated image for use with the DV4mini and the Raspberry Pi 2 and 3. It incorporates changes through dv4mini software version date 20170517. It also includes my Brandmeister XTG Dialer for use with extended routing.

Changes include enhacements for YSF reflectors, DMR, DStar as well as the introduction of a text chat window.

Thanks to Ulrich Prinz (DC3AX) for his hard work in support of the DV4 community!

RTL-SDR on the Cheap SWL Fest Links

As promised during Thursday afternoon’s presentation at the SWL Fest, here are the links for RTL software and info mentioned. If you attended the presentation, I hope that you enjoyed it and found it useful.

SDR#, a flexible SDR app for Windows with MANY plugins
DSD+, decodes P25, DMR, Fusion, DStar (data only), and others
Virtual Audio Cable, a virtual patch cable to send the output of one program into the input of another
Unitrunker, analog and digital trunk tracker with lots of data decoding
HDSDR, a software radio that can also make use of the RTL-SDR hardware
Linrad, for those who prefer to work in a Linux or Mac environment
DAB Player, requires the original (not Zadig WinUSB drivers

The Big List of RTL Supported Software
RTL-SDR.ru, in Russian, but Google Translate is your friend.

Update: I have added the video narratives as a YouTube playlist.

Correction: During the talk I stated that I thought the MCX connector used on the earlier DVB-T dongles appeared to be the same as the connector used on some Sirius satellite receivers.  I just took a close look and realized that while they are somewhat similar in appearance, the Sirius connector is larger and is actually an SMB connector.
