Dual SDR Receivers

This is an earlier report from Jack about his success running dual SDR receivers controlled by a single PC. Click on the thumbnail for a larger view.

Good evening,
Last night I began running two SDRs: a general coverage unit connected to the Beverage antennas, and an IF unit connected to the TS-850S.  Each goes to a separate outboard sound card, but to the same PC.

The wrinkle was how to manage the audio going from the sound cards to the amplified sound system.  I decided to take a hint from W4BXI's approach to audio, and I hooked up a six channel Behringer mixer.  It works great!  It also looks like the PC will handle both SDRs okay.

Now if I can just get two monitors working like W4UOA...
