So how did the SDRPlay, play?
I've now got the SDRPlay connected to the Lenovo notebook and the 13cm transverter 2nd IF output. Switching the transverter LO to give 2300MHz coverage and tuning the SDRPlay to 164.830MHz I can copy several 2320MHz beacons and the local one at Martlesham, although very strong, does not cause any discernible strong signal problems. This is reverse operation of the system.
I will use it as a more conventional parallel 2300MHz receiver this evening during the UKAC/NAC 13cm and up when the main system is on 2320MHz. It should be an interesting test.
