HOME QTH HAM STATION:
Note: Using 100 Watt SDR-HYBRID TRANSCEIVER with SDRplay RSP receiver and Kenwood TS-590SG transmitter, all in sinc with HDSDR software. SETUP INSTRUCTIONS:
Connect the antenna output of the SDRplay RSP receiver to the DRV (RCA jack on the back of the TS-590SG) after previously enabling "ANT" from Menu 85 and connecting the TS-590SG USB 2.0 jack to your Windows computer. Now, "METER/DRV" on the front of the TS-590SG is used to toggle the function ON/OFF. Connect USB 2.0 jack on SDRplay receiver to your Windows PC. After installing, MIRIC drivers, Alberto di Bene's (I2PHD) HDSDR software, and the SDRplay plugin in HDSDR it all runs like a HYBRID SDR transceiver, since OmniRig Syncronized both rigs perfectly, even fully accessing the Control Console of the SDRplay while running HDSDR for full receiver control. The Kenwood transceiver now operates: AA) with its internal receiver; or BB) as a "hybrid" SDR transceiver when using the SDRplay RSP as its receiver (with a selectable bandwith from .200 to 8.000MHz). And friends, the system is VERY STABLE.
