Issues with PDW and SDR#

Post by rothackerben8 » Tue Aug 30, 2016 12:19 pm

I am having problems with my PDW and SDR#. When a pocsag 512 signal comes through, the needle in PDW goes all the way to the right, then when the sound in the signal changes to the lower crackly sound it instantly goes all the way to the right. The signal is crystal clear coming through. I am just using a SDR dongle.

Any help appreciated

Hi there Ben,

Please ensure your audio settings are correct and that you are using the right sample rate. This information can be found on the RTL-SDR quick start guide for PDW. Check over this tutorial to ensure all of your settings are correct and that you haven't made any small mistakes. I have done this before and all it took was a quick re-read of the tutorial.

Hope all goes well
