Anan 10E TX problem??

paul newcombe <G6YZC@...>
 

Hi Group....

Just wondering if anyone else has run across this....

When TXing with the SDRC and the Anan 10e SDRC will not always go back to RX. It just locks up.
I can hear the relays in the Anan and in the amp switch back to RX but SDRC waterfall does not start again.
I have attached 4 screenshots.

Good RX  and Good TX. These are the baseline screenshots.
Bad TX  is what my TX screen looks like RIGHT before the radio does not switch back to RX.
Notice no power out on the meters. I am still getting power out and obviously tones out as I can see the power on my external power meter 
at the same level as it is when I have power out showing on the SDRC meter and hear the tones over the speaker.
As you can see I am using FT8 for this test.
Bad RX is what my SDRC screen looks like when it locks up directly after the Bad TX period.
The Bad RX period is ALWAYS proceeded by a Bad TX period.

If I double click on the big TX button it will start to RX again correctly.
This happens very often. Maybe 6 times in 1 hour.
I have my Anan plugged straight into the SDRC computer with no switch or router in line. Just static IPs. 

Thoughts on what I am doing wrong anyone?

I have 4 Anan 10Es in the shack so if needed I can swap the Anan's out to see if it is just on the one being used on HF or if it is on the other Anan 10Es being used on the other bands too.

No audio after updating win 10 #sdrconsolev3

Selwyn Warren <selwarrentv81@...>
 

I am using SDR Console version 3.0.17  build 1686.   Every time I update win 10 OS pre-releases audio doesn't work.  It always involves the audio drivers. Uninstalling the audio drivers in Device Manager and restarting the PC some times fixes the problem.  Uninstalling the audio drivers and re-installing manually sometimes fixes the problem.  This time after the latest win 10 OS update last night nothing fixes it.  I have SDRuno installed on the same PC and have never had a problem with it.

Any ideas?

Group:

I’m working through configuring SDR console v3 as a panadpater display
for use with a K3. The configuration is as follows:

SDR Console v3.0.17

Win 10 pro Intel I7 gen 8

SDR-IQ

DXLab with Omni-Rig connected to the secondary com port of DXLab
Commander using virtual com ports.

I’ve have run into a couple of issues that I have not been able to resolve:

1. When the K3 mode is set to Data A (USB) the SDR Console displays Data-L.
Using DXLab Commander to change radio mode to Data=L, SDR Console displays
Data-U
2. SDR Console will occasionally display the B VFO frequency of the K3, the
radio is not in split. DX Commander and my amp both display VFO A
properly 3. I’m unable to get the passband on the spectrum display to overlay the actual
passband correctly. I suspect that this is related to #1.

This is a great application!

Any assistance is greatly apricated.

Re: #pluto #pluto

Siegfried Jackstien
 

aehem ... how can it be that you do not receive your own transmission?? but have TWO frequencies where you really send??

something is puzzled there but i can not figure out what

about stability of usb connection ... yes ... do the ground mod (easiest is a short bridge from L7 to D3)

what gain and drive do you have set in menue??

and you say that you can change tx frequency (say with the mouse in numbers box) and the tx frequency plus its spurii stays fixed??

hmmm...

you use the pluto with external reference i guess??

did you check that the 40 megs HAVE TO BE SWITCHED ON when you start pluto?? maybe the frequency was not there ... tx calibration did not work ... and that may explain why there is a ghost signal ... and why tx qrg change does not work

but that is all just shooting in the dark ... NEVER have seen such a thing here

grreetz and good luck to find the fault

Hallo Sigi,

Vielen Dank fuer die Antwort,

 

Please explain for dummis: why must I engage the geo beacon? I don’t need it for frequency stability.

I use the Pluto for a few month now. Works fine with v3.0.15  No spurious. I put the curser over the signal I want to respond to and push the PTT. Works.

Only problem is the disconnects of the USB, in spite of the mods suggested to the grounding  in the Pluto. Aber das ist eine andere Geschichte.

Offset is off

Re the gain: That is what I mean with gain sensitivity being high.

With 3.0.15, Audio gain 60, compression 60, I need a drive setting of 75 to create a two tone signal 6dB below the beacon. No spurious.

With 3.0.17 the drive setting is 18,  the spurious are there and the tx output frequency is fixed, no matter what the tx frequency window says.

Am well aware about overdriving things. Maybe there is some default setting I have not discovered yet?

do you have tx offset switched on?!? (switch it off ... no need on qo100 for tx offset!!)

i see that you use a very low drive from the pluto (only 20%)... means you have a very high gain amp BEHIND the pluto towards antenna

that means that "ghost signals" or spurii that would normally not be seen ... are then still to be seen on the transponder

add attenuator behind pluto and use a bit higher drive with such a high gain amplifier (guessing you use a datv setup on nb transponder?!?)

best is drive area of 80 to 90 % (that gives cleanest signal here on my station) settings above 90 ... and the pluto is not so clean anymore ... (same as with all trx ... fullpower gives dirty signal)

with such a high gain behind the pluto you will see those ghost signals ... adding attenuator and using higher drive in pluto may solve that

Hi all

Have installed the latest Console update. Am using Pluto. Rx everything is fine. Transmit works only on10489770.325 (downlink) At the same time there is a carrier on 10489744.175

It does not matter what tx frequency is selected. I tried another computer, re-booted Pluto. No change. The Tx Audio and gain settings are much more sensitive.

Re-installing the software didn’t help.

So I installed the Oct. version again and everything is fine.

Am I missing something? Using Win10
