With no antennas attached why is there a difference in the two screens which are on the same frequency?

This is interesting. My 5000 running PSDR v2.7.2 does not exhibit this behaviour. What version of the software are you running?

This is supposed to be K9ENS software in the picture. I have K9ENS PSDR 2.7.2 and it doesn't look like that so I don't know what it is. The freqs aren't matched but you can see the difference.

I figured it out...it's the latest PSDR 2.8.0 version but it still doesn't explained why the to radios are different.

The receivers do not use the same electronics.  They have their own ADCs and filter circuitry so there will be small differences in the digitization performance between the two.

Thank you Tim! So does the above look normal?
