SDRUno VFO Controller Update

No pricing or release details yet but this has now gone from concept to design we have a sneak peek, For those who want a traditional dial to tune their SDR this will be an affordable option, A dedicated unit that will work with SDRUno and various other sdr software,

There are limited options for dedicated controllers for SDR with the Elad TM-2 being the premier choice and a great addition for SDRUno and other SDR Software, The TM-2 is great for those of us who like as much functionality as possible, this new unit will fit in nicely for those who would like a traditional tuning knob but do not want the expense of the TM-2 and do not require the full functionality,

We will be posting more details as we get them,

Grey line map. HUH?

Some of you may or may not know about grey line or using a grey line map. Here is a quick primer as to why I use one. Using a a grey line map is a fantastic visual aid that might help you in catching some rare HF DX.

Image may contain: screen and office

I usually have SDRuno running 8 hours a day 6-7 days a week and the reason is, it’s my job. But as soon as Florida sun is starting to set. I’m enjoying HF listening from transmissions originating mostly out of Western Europe (long path).

A greyline map basically separates daylight from darkness. Propagation along the grey line is usually very good.  Why? The D layer (which absorbs HF signals) disappears very fast on the sunset side of the grey line and on the sunrise side The D layer has not yet built up to absorb HF transmissions that I’m after.

You can really optimize your chances of long distance listening to various areas of the world by monitoring when your region is going into grey line.

Here is a great website that I really recommend that you bookmark .

If you use Google Chrome as your browser, you must allow the websites Flash content to run. Just click the Adobe Flash link I highlighted above.

If you run a single monitor setup…It might be time for a 2nd or 3rd monitor. Let us know in the comments section what catches you have made by monitoring HF signals in the grey line.
