So with MUCH ado, ./usrp_wfm_rcv.py WORKS!
right now 10dB/div for both settings, and my station is 98.7M.
Now here is the weird part… I get an absolutely crystal clear signal
put my hand near the antenna. Like an inch away!
I can also put the antenna such that it is near my fan or something, and
Why would this be? I’m sort of flying by the seat of my pants when it
to attaching the antenna (it’s just your basic black hinged one). Are
any instructions or diagrams that show how it should be attached and
positioned? And why would placing it near things help some come clearer?
Very confusing! Ideally, I want to be able to pick up any station that a
normal radio could so I can use usrp_spectrum_sense and whatnot.
Your help is appreciated. You have no idea how excited I was when radio
over my computer… to paraphrase an article, “congratulations, you just
turned thousands of dollars of equipment into something that you can buy
