FMSuite for SDR# has been updated

I now have a unified installer for SDR#; this single installer will handle both x86 and x64 versions of SDR# so now there’s no need for two versions of FMSuite.  In addition, the FMS Installer can now be executed from within the SDR# folder.

Just unzip the file to a convenient place and run it to install into SDR#.

Let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using my software.

  1. Hi Jeff,

    Are there any changes to the plugin itself, or if V6342 is working fine there's nothing to be gained at my end right now?

  2. Hi. There are no functional changes in this new version so you don't need to download it if you don't want to. I'm just improving the installation process for versions going forward.

    Thanks for asking, and thanks for using my software.

    Cheers,
    Jeff

  3. Jeff, problem. Windows 7 users apparently cannot use the latest software, as it requires .net 4.7.

  4. .NET 4.7 is supported on Windows 7 SP1. I can't put a link in this but here's the URL for the download:

    Hope this helps. Thanks!

  5. I just installed everything and it seems I cannot get 154.665 MHz, the program skips this and jumps to 154.662 to 156.675 as though they skip the frequencies I want to listen to. STUMPED!

    1. Hi, and thanks for writing. If you haven't already done so, enable the Scanner Decisions window by placing a checkmark in the Scanner Rules tab. Use Tools > Edit Preferences > Scan Rules to get there. You should be able to see why it isn't stopping on that frequency. Feel free to write to me directly if that doesn't help (email address in the Contact Me section of this page).

  6. Just installed it, I type in the frequency range I want to scan then hit scan and it changes my values to 0 and 5.000.

    1. Hi. Enter the frequencies in Hertz, not KHz or MHz. For example 159.54 MHz must be entered as 159540000. This and other rules are in the User's Guide that came with the Setup app.

      Also if you have the relevant check box marked in Tools > Edit Preferences > Scan Rules, your frequency range will be updated to match the Step Size you have set in SDR#.

      I hope this helps; let me know of any other questions. Thanks for trying my software.

  7. Is there anyway to enable offset tuning? I am using it with a HackRF and in the center tuning frequency there is a large spike.
    Thanks

    1. Hello aguylikeme. Technically offset tuning is configured in SDR#, not in the scanner. You instead might save a different center frequency in the database for a given receive freqeuncy.

      Cheers,

    2. This works great in a channel scan but if I scan across frequencies it gets hanged up on the center frequency, and if I try to lock it out, the center frequency is retuned to the next frequency. SdrSharp unfortunately doesn't offer offset tuning for the Hackrf, is there any way around this?

    3. Hi again. When scanning by range the radio will always get centered on a detected active frequency. This behavior cannot be changed. However I have seen that changing the bandwidth will often change the amplitude of the center DC spike. Along with setting the Squelch you can often find a happy medium. Thanks again.
