Connection problem with Radarbox
« on: February 18, 2013, 01:43:20 PM »
Hi

I suspect that I will have to send the box away for repair but before I do I thought that I would just check that I am not missing anything obvious.

I took my RB away with me and used it on my laptop with success but since I got home and re-connected it to my desktop PC I am picking up no transmissions at all. The light is green showing that it is connected and I live just below the approach to 09L at Heathrow so there is no shortage of activity outside.

I have replaced the USB lead with a new one but still nothing. Nothing has changed in the setup of the PC so it is unlikely to be anything to do with that so can anyone suggest something else for me to look into before I send it away (again!)

Cheers

Colin

Have you tried it with the laptop since you got back, if its OK with it it must be something to do with your PC set up

Thanks Alan - I should have said that I have tried the laptop with the same result! It did take a day or so for me to think of trying that though!!

Hi Colin, you've probably already checked this, but check and re-check the antenna connector and the RB socket.
ANRB :  AOR AR8000 : Icom R-7000 : Icom IC-R9000 : JRC NRD-545 : OptoElectronics Digital Scout and OptoLinx Interface; Realistic Pro-2005 : UBC 800XLT - listed in alphabetical order, not cost, preference, performance or entertainment value!

Thanks for the advice - I have actually now sent it off to Waters & Stanton so hope that they can figure it out quickly. Feel lost without the RB though :-)
