    2 dongles in a Linux Machine

    Hi Geniuses! It's been a while since I've been here. I added a Linux machine on my W7 PC, and don't use the PC much anymore. I have two dongles, one of which is dedicated to an APCO 25 Phase two trunking receiver. I'd like to use my second dongle on the Linux machine for ADB-S/Plane plotter...

    One last plea from a member who values your sage input... I know some of you run dump78 mutability. I have a spider cut for 978 Mhz and an inline amp. When I use SDR# on my W7 laptop, I see the characteristic spectrum at ~ 977.7 Mhz. I have installed a Virtualbox Ubuntu on my Imac, which is...

    Hi All I've been working with Oliver on this, but was wondering if anybody here could help. I installed dump978 on my Mac...my RPi seems to be dead. I have a spider cut for 978, and an in-line amp going to my new RTL dongle. Testing the new dongle on SDRSharp (on my W7 laptop), I get great...

    Hi guys I know this is a bit off-topic...would an inline amp with a low end of 50 Mhz work for the VHF aviation band? Happy holiday weekend to all Yanks Todd

    Caius Thanks for the explanation. I was actually looking for something that will decode UAT. Do you know if it's a Windows or a Linux distribution? May I ask who OBJ is? Thanks Todd OBJ (who wrote the mutability fork) also produced dump978, which is different software that decodes UAT...
