       qthid - simple controller for the Funcube Dongle SDR




       This  program is a Graphical User Interface to control a radio receiver called the Funcube
       Dongle SDR. This program was written mainly by Alexandru Csete, OZ9AEC based upon  initial
       code from Howard Long, G6LVB.

       For  more  information  on the FUNcube project please visit and
       the latest on the FUNcube SDR dongle visit

       It provides full support for the Funcube Dongle API::
        * Change frequency and apply frequency correction.
        * Change RF gains and filters.
        * Change IF gains and filters.
        * LNA enhancement, bias current, etc.
        * I/Q correction.
        * Auto-repeat tuning buttons (click and hold button to scan).
        * Variable frequency step.
        * Upgrade and verify the firmware.

       The qthid program implements the full API available with firmware versions 18f or greater.
       It should cover all the functionality provided by the "fully functional windows frontend".
       Note that the majority of this full API is only available since firmware 18f and qthid 3.0
       will  not  work with earlier firmware.  The application will simply fail to detect any FCD
       with earlier firmwares.

       You can use qthid-2.2 to upgrade your firmware to 18f or later.
