RE: [linrad] RE: Using Linrad as a Diversity Receiver?
Thanks for the explanations!
With a red face I must report that I discovered that my 'stereo' headphones are
functioning as mono headphones. I discovered this by finding that ALL my audio
sources were mono when listened to with these headphones. I have substituted an
identical [but functioning properly, as stereo] set of headphones and now all is
well. The 'X+Y' function works as it should.
With the two different receivers with non phase or frequency locked LO's in the X+Y
mode I now do get some unusual aural effects that I assume are due to the constantly
varying phase relationship between the two receivers [as well as due to multipath;
but I also hear similar effects using a local 432 mHZ source]. I hear a 'beat note'
type of effect, much as when you bring two oscillators close in frequency and listen
to them together. In X+Y this also seems to move about the soundstage some. But
even so I think that Linrad is working well as a diversity receiver.
If I get time I will play with this a bit on HF, using a vertical on one channel and
a random length wire on the other. Again, 2 receivers without phase locking, to
Thanks again, Leif! This is yet another very interesting thing that Linrad can do.
And now to get those headphones to work in stereo mode ;)
