FT2000 Panadaptor now up and running

At long last I have a Panadapter of sorts up and running. I’m using a cheap DBTV RTL dongle plugged into the PC USB Port and feeding the DMU IF out “Scope Port” to the antenna port of the dongle. The FT2000 IF signal at this port is 69.450MHz which is no problem for the dongle. Currently using Gqrx software now need to integrate it to Rigctrl so I can synch mouse clicks with VFO activity. More anon.

    Hello. Much Internet searching brings me here. Based on what I can understand in this post, you have an SDR dongle (“cheap DBTV RTL”) and have gotten successful use with program gqrx running on Linux. Ok, I’ve probably got a similar dongle (advertised as “100KHz-1.7GHz full band UV HF RTL-SDR USB Tuner Receiver/ R820T+8232 Ham Radio”) which I was unable to get working, even using specialized Linux distro ‘Skywave’. Swapping an SDRplay device worked straight-away, likely because the various software more immediately knew that device’s parameters.

    What parameters did you use in gqrx to get your dongle working? Or, where did you find info to achieve this? Thanks much! Norway, Michigan, USA – not yet HAM licensed SWL.
