Carmine. Unless I missed something you can make your own TX filter up to 24kHz? See attached picture. This is latest build from Simon's download link. Have you got the latest?

Thank you Roy. As an owner of the HL2 (which I am very happy with) my interest is that this Hermes board and the 10E cover 6m band, whereas HL2 stops at 32 MHz. Now thinking I should have gone for the Apache board with PA but missed the boat. However, I'm thinking it may be cheaper and less hassle to try and find a used 10E. Maybe I will reserve decision until Simon gets SDRC fully working with the Hermes!

SDR Console transmit audio bandwidth limited to around 5 kHz

Carmine Iannace (K1VL)
 

Hello Simon, I'm thoroughly enjoying SDR Console 3.2 with one notable exception. The transmit audio bandwidth is limited to around 5 kHz no matter what wider transmit filter I create to allow for higher bandwidth. I am an avid AM and ESSB fan and I had the expectation that TX filter bandwidth upper limit would be the similar to Thetis 2.9.0.6 which is 9.9 kHz. I would prefer to use SDR Console as my all around SDR interface, as it is outstanding software, but the transmit audio restriction is moving me to use Thetis more often for ESSB and AM modes. Is it possible to remove this 5 kHz restriction on transmit in a future release so SDR Console mirrors the transmit bandwidth available in Thetis?

Thank you for your efforts in the development of SDR Console!

Yes,

Protocol II is needed.

I believe you need protocol 2 Firmware and the board probably has
Protocol 1.

Re: Hermes board from Apache Labs

Hi Max,

From a hardware point of view the schematics for a 10E appear to match what we got with the Hermes/PA combo.

The only place I have seen some errors or omissions is in the Thetis manual. I currently have the Thetis version 1.1 manual in PDF. I have not seen a newer version; if anyone knows of a later version please share the info.

I am also using the latest Thetis version for now, 2.9.0.6, and the manual is for an earlier version so there are some minor differences..

While Thetis is interesting and very complex, it will be good to see what Simon comes up with.

regards, Roy

I would be willing to be an add on if someone is looking to do a run of these and need a minimum order to have it make sense.

Hi.

Finally, after traveling for 10 full days and in that span spending 6 days in the Indian customs efficient handling, my Hermes board arrived after lunch today.
It looks nice. I notice that it is not exactly as in the manual. E.G. the power supply port (J10) is situated on the main side of the board rather than on the back side as shown in the manual. The J10 connector is a different type than depicted in the manual.

After carefully removing the production tray holders on each long side it slides nicely into the Hammond 1455Q1601 box.

What radio definition do I use in SDRC for connecting to the board?
Do I need to do anything except power the board up and connect the Ethernet cable?

Simon, Thanks very much for answering.  I didn't expect it. 
I did several screen clips of SDRC next to CW Skimmer. 
For some reason I can't see any of those screenshots here, but I use the web interface to read this group. I guess they got through to email users only? Seems to be a recurring theme on this group. Low storage at IO I think?

Just to report that I do have an old version of CW Skimmer (I think it's 2.1, so probaly ancient) but once set up (must admit it was a bit of a faff) it plays perfectly with my Hermes Lite 2 SDR. Whether I tune on CW Skimmer window or from inside SDRC the CW signal in bang in middle of both displays and a perfect decode both audio from SDRC and also on Skimmer. Looks like some sort of offset issue to do with using the external radio? Also to report (I'm sure this is mentioned in some other places) the maximum span in Skimmer is lower than the 192kHz you might think. From memory I think I only see about 16kHz. Could be wrong on the exact figure, but I know there seems to be an upper limit and above that the set width has no effect.

Sorry, I'm very short on time, but briefly scanning through the OP's description, I thought I see mention of Com3 being used to two different destinations (sorry if I misinterpreted this). Don't forget you need a dedicated Com pair for each application, one "to" and one "from" SDRC. 

So to summarise, it works very well with a dedicated SDR so the issue must be to do with a conflict or error of some sort in getting the External radio to sync. Is there a frequency offset that needs programming in somewhere?

Sorry not to be more helpful. I know setting up CW Skimmer is not trivial and I don't have time to look in detail just at the moment, and the more-so because I don't see any of the screenshots.

Startup receive issues from IC7300 & PTRX-7300 Panadapter

w3wtw@...
 

Running a IC7300 with an internal PTRX-7300 panadapter connected to an RSP1A SDR.

I have two RSP1A's and at SDR Console startup I select whichever I want to use. 99% of the time it's the RSP1A connected to the panadapter inside the 7300.

On startup of SDR Console, I see no signal coming from the panadapter. I simply select Stop radio then start radio and the signal appears.

See attached screen caps. First one is on startup and the 2nd is after clicking Stop radio then Start radio. This happens every time I start SDRConsole.

Any ideas why this happens at every startup?

The attached PDF may help with the panel cutouts.  It's from the original HPSDR HERMES so there may be differences with the Apache version, but it should be a good start.

and use the Signal view to capture a data stream and compare the CSV in excel post recording

I cannot seem to find info on this anywhere. Is the duo capability only achieved with SDR UNO?
