Can not get SDR working/configured

Recommended Posts

I have just started to explore SDR and trying to build a scanner as described

in www.instructables.com/.../How-to-Make-a-19-Police-Radio. I purchased a NooElec RS20T SDR & DVB-T USB stick. I loaded the SDRSharp software and the updated dll. The instructions indicated that I should be able to pick up WFM signals. Needles to say nothing but static. while reading through the forum, I read the the blue light on the stick should on. It's not. I am running

an Window 7 base system. I check the usb drive in device manager and it indicates that the driver is working. I am looking at defective USB or should I look at something else before sending it back?

The blue light should turn on when plugged in and you should have a usb device in the device manager for bulk-in interface (interface 0). if that is there the drivers are probably good. you could try reinstalling the drivers
