is it possible to use SSDR to record screenshots of the spectrum/rfi ? My neighbor across the street is having a soalr array mounted on his roof, and I'm looking to get screenshots for a baseline of the noise, pre installation.

One way to do it is, get your SSDR display on the screen, press the Print Screen button on your keyboard.  Open the Windows Paint program and click the Paste button (upper left).  The SSDR should appear in the Paint program and you can save it off to a file.

Be sure and provide date/time info since it’s a baseline

If you happen to be using Windows 10, it also has built-in game recording features which work wonderfully for recording video from SSDR as well. If you just need screenshots, then the snipping tool is probably the best way.
