List of SDRSharp Plugins

May 18, 2013 admin

There are a number of SDRSharp plugins that extend its functionality. Here is a collection of all the plugins and download links that I could find. The installation of most of these plugins will require editing the Plugins.xml file with a text editor such as notepad. More detailed instructions are usually bundled in a readme file with the plugin.

Note: SDR# has recently changed its plugin install procedure. Many plugin install instructions will refer to adding a line to the SDRSharp.config.exe file. Instead the line should now be added to the Plugins.xml file.

Note 2: Plugins that were once in the SDR# Yahoo group are gone as all the files were purged by the SDR# developer some months ago. We have been unable to find alternative download links for these files.

Unitrunker Trunking Plugin

Allows the trunking control software Unitrunker to control the frequencies in SDRSharp. This allows digital and analogue trunking systems to be followed.

Unitrunker Serial Based Trunking Plugin

Does the same job as the above Unitrunker plugin, but may be more stable.

Orbitron Plugin

Allows the Orbitron satellite tracking software to control the frequency in SDRSharp. This is useful as Orbitron can automatically correct for the Doppler shift when listening to satellites.

Satellite Tracker Plugin

Frequency Manager + Scanner and Scanner Metrics and Frequency Entry Package Plugin

This is a plugin package which comes with three plugins. It comes with a more advanced frequency manager than the one shipped with SDRSharp.

It also has a scanner option which can quickly scan through a group of your saved frequencies, looking for an active signal.

It also has a scanner metrics plugin, which records frequency activity to a database. Later this database can be analyzed to find out which frequencies are the most active, saving you time searching manually for active frequencies.

Finally, this package also has a frequency entry plugin, which works like the old SDRSharp frequency entry used to work. Basically, it just allows you to choose a center frequency and IF frequency easily by typing it in instead of adjusting it with the mouse.
