new member here, but been playing with rtl dongles and sdr generally for a
I run four rtl dongles covering 50, 70, 144 and 432MHz with websdr running
on Ubuntu Mate
Works quite well but I have trouble with the device indexing changing for
rtl_tcp. ie sometimes a dongle gets allocated to a different band.
To try and fix the issue I've given each dongle a unique serial number and
created some udev rules which create symlinks for each dongle. That all
Problem is that rtl_tcp uses device indexing starting at D0 and expects D1,
D2 D3 etc. whereas my symlinks are called 6mtrs, 4mtrs, 2mtrs and 70cms
Not sure how to make rtl_tcp work with symlink's rather than device index.
Any ideas ?
