Thanks for sharing that, Marcus! I agree with Glen that it looks like
a great tool, and I look forward to testing it out -- feel free to
post it on the Open Source Radio Telescopes mailing list as well in
case there are folks there who would like to use it, too.
I think I had done that in the past, but will do so again.
So, back to the original question -- I am still not having any luck
getting my RTL-SDR dongle to work with GNURadio on Windows 10, despite
the fact that the dongle works just fine with SDR# on the same
computer. Is this a known issue, and if so, are there any solutions I
could try? I was hoping to use GNU Radio to test out a new antenna I
built soon, so if anyone has any advice about this, again I would
really appreciate hearing it!
Many thanks in advance!
I'm not a Windows guy at all, so I cannot help. Wish I could.
Can anyone here help Ellie get GR-based "stuff" going with RTL-SDR on
W10? Anything to look out for?
Also, there's the ##rtlsdr IRC channel -- a pile of Windows folks on there.

Hi Marcus and Ellie,
Thanks again for the flow graph Marcus. It's a very impressive piece
If one has only one SDR, it is necessary to change the input number
to 1, I think(?) Then connect the 2nd channel (chan1) to the output
of the source
block. The modified .grc file works right away.

to plug in my SDR and run the flowgraph (attached), but I keep
getting the output below:

This is being done to prevent the application from crashing

I've run zadig for the RTL-SDR, and it works just fine with SDR#.
Do you have any advice as to why I might be having this problem
with the GNURadio flowgraph?
Thanks very much! Have a great evening and take care,
I hope someone can help you, Ellie.
My approach would be to install an operating system on your
computer. :) :) [That was snarkasm, just in case it wasn't
Once you get it working, you (and Glen et al) might want to play with:
