  • Updated 1 year ago
PowerSDR v2.7.2, Waterfall quit working today. I've had this problem before where I could reset the waterfall by rebooting my PC and F3K as well as disconnecting power between the F3K and power source. These solutions no longer work. Looking for other remedies that would bring my waterfall back to life. Help greatly appreciated. Ron n6paa.

hi Ron.
i also run a f3k and had similar problems when using psdr 2.7. my band block use to dissappear or my power button onscreen wouldnt illuminate. weird little things , but annoying.
i upgraded to the KE9NS version of psdr many months ago and it runs trouble free now with a few extra added features that the standard Psdr doesnt have.
once you use Darrins version you wont go back.

look at google. search KE9NS flex and have a read.
worth the install. Follow prompts carefully and delete what is suggested.
its actually a "self installer zip" these days..but you may have to drop 2.7.2 off your system first.
check out the read me stuff b4 doing anything.
good luck.

I agree with Marty. It worked for me quite well. I had issues getting the VSP working with Power SDR. As the installation notes say, you can still have your Power SDR in the system, without impacting on the installation. Hope it fixes the issue for you

Ron, 

If rebooting the computer does not correct the issue , then re-run the PowerSDR installer..  This should correct the issue.

Thanks all for quick reply. I'll try the PowerSDR installer. The KE9NS flex app looks interesting, might try it. Thanks, Ron n6paa
