QtRadio is an open source SDR receiver that is based on a client-server architecture from the ground up. It is designed so that multiple clients can connect to a single server. QtRadio comes with a special RTL-SDR server which you will need to download and run. My only DSP radio is a TCI/BR 8174 with 6 KHz the widest filter. Looks like a cubic designer did it. Again the S meter is very accurate. 3 conversions down to 5 KHz into an A/D / DSP it works pretty well but could use a better roofing filter in the first IF.

Hermes SDR is an outstanding high-performance Software Defined Radio developed by TAPR (Tucson Amateur Packet Radio) group and the Open HP SDR group.

I received my Hermes card from the first production run in October 2012. This page has notes about my bring-up process and links to resources I found useful.

I'm very impressed by the listening quality of this receiver. Finally, at last, I get the type of reception I've always wanted. Everything about this SDR exceeds my expectations so far. Including the learning curve of the PowerSDR user interface, lol.

The FlexRadio Systems FLEX Firewire driver has three (3) sub-driver components. The first sub driver, the FlexRadio Systems FLEX-xxxx core driver component was just installed in steps 8 - 12. There are two additional sub-driver components that must installed to complete the driver installation process. HPSDR Downloads. Software HPSDRprogrammers Binaries for loading firmware HPDSRprogrammer Binaries last updated: Sat Nov 4 11:10:02 UTC 2017 This program is used to load FPGA firmware on the Metis ethernet interface board or Hermes board. It will also program the Penelope, Pennylane, and Mercury boards as well, using the Metis board. Once the install has completed reboot your PC even if the driver install does not prompt you to restart. By default the installation program will install this driver on your system in this directory: C: Program Files FlexRadio Systems USBIO Driver (Note: HPSDR requires that your PC has USB 2.0 ports.

Computer

I'm starting with a Dell 9100 computer. Pentium-4 at 3 GHz with 1 GB of RAM.

It's dedicated to SDR with nothing else but a fresh install of 64-bit Windows-7. Not sure yet if it’s sufficient for this task. It works okay so far but it' was built in 2005.

I will be exploring what situations overload the CPU. Seems to be running at 60 to 80% utilization so far. In all likelihood the PC will need replacing, but the machine was available on short notice and I'm interested to see how well it works.

I’m a big subscriber to the problem-solving approach of starting with the simplest possible thing that could possibly work, and gain experience to make knowledgeable decisions for improvement.

Operating Layout

A NASA control station would be fun, I've always wanted one. But NASA does it the stupid way, with consoles arranged in long horizontal rows. They really should be stacking them vertically for more efficient use of space. Think how simple it would be for the boss to pass down instructions from his desk at the highest point in a ballistic communications protocol. Isn't it strange how they never asked me personally for my fabulous ideas on this.

My layout goals are:

  1. Table is shared with work computer
  2. Make efficient use of desk space
  3. Dedicated SDR computer
  4. Dual monitor
  5. Easy field-of-view to watch SDR screen while working
  6. Switch antenna for comparison with other rigs
  7. Reserve space for: 10w amp, 100w amp, LDG tuner, rotator

Installing Hercules DJ Control for Hermes SDR

Bring up:

  • Plug in USB cables.
  • Insert setup CD and choose 'Install DJ Control MP3 e2 Drivers.'
  • From the Start menu, run 'Guillemot WebUpdater' to install the latest software.

This software runs from a forked version of PowerSDR identified as 'PowerSDR-UI'. This is manually installed by copying distribution files into an installed FlexRadio PowerSDR folder. The versions must match.

Check version of base PowerSDR by examining file properties of c:Program FilesOpenHPSDRPowerSDR (W5WC)OpenHPSDR.exe'. Use the Details tab to find Product version e.g. 2.2.3.19.

At the time of writing, Oct 31, 2012 the versions are:

  • Install 'PowerSDR RX1 2.2.3.19' from OpenHPSDR.org - don't go to FlexRadio
  • Test it for basic operation.
  • Download 'PowerSDR-UI 0.993 beta package' from www.dh1tw.de
  • Unzip the content of PowerSDR-UI (six files) into the PowerSDR application directory, e.g., 'c:Program FilesOpenHPSDRPowerSDR (W5WC)'

December 2012 Update

I'm finishing initial bring-up of Hermes + Anan-10 package.

I installed Win-7 Ultimate on the Dell 9100.

Visit openhpsdr.org/download.php and install 'PowerSDR v2.2.5.0 (W5WC) Setup' in place of 2.2.3.19. The new version came up fine on receiver. But still shows Hermes firmware version 1.8. So, how to update firmware for Hermes SDR?

  1. Following steps in Hermes_User_Manual_V1.13.pdf:
  2. Download the latest Windows firmware installer from http://openhpsdr.org/download.php, currently named 'HPSDRProgrammer-v1.6-win32.zip'
  3. The firmware installer is just a zip file. Unpack it and run its executable.
  4. If you are missing 'wpcap.dll' (Windows packet capture library) then download it from http://www.winpcap.org/install/default.htm currently v4.1.2.

Things work great with Hermes alone! Now to connect Anan-10 and try the same receiver test again.

It works great. This rig is a joy to use, and very quiet.
