Re: HL2 CW Power Output control #cw

Hi,

 

Wrong list I think?

Hi Simon et al:

 

I made a video to illustrate the difficulty with setting the power level in cw mode with my HL2 build 9, under Windows 10/64.

 

I am endeavoring to demonstrate that the cw output can indeed be reduced to about a watt as indicated correctly on the power output meter using the OP slider. However, when I pause, the HL2 drops out of transmit, and when I close the key again the power is back up to the full 5 watts.

 

I am grounding only the tip of the front panel jack using a mercury relay driven by the AEA MM3 keyer. The gateware I am using is 71p1 which is otherwise satisfactory and can be seen here: https://github.com/softerhardware/Hermes-Lite2/tree/master/gateware/bitfiles/testing/20200425_71p1

 

The p2 version works identically in regard to the cw output level.

The power output in cw does not have this issue in PowerSDR.

 

The video can be downloaded from my Dropbox at: https://www.dropbox.com/s/xk1posxo3n2pojj/MVI_0001.MOV?dl=0

 

Sorry to give you more work but I hope this helps.

 

Thanks!

OK,

Thank you Simon, one less to try on the list! SDR Console plays perfectly the recordings from the Analyzer but  when I run it with the Elad I have only white noise on the spectrum and on the speaker. The original Elad software it's working fine, so there is no issue with the antenna, the S2, cabling etc. I have some wrong settings somewhere, It'll be a long funny night ... 

Bye, Fabio.

Simon,

Lol, trust me I know all too well, this is not actually that easy to explain and I have hours of trying different settings and research, this is the closest I have come. I have had SDR Console Controlling my TX of the Rig while running the SDR receiver and it controls the doppler great the rotor great. I just could not get passed the delay my HF rig this is not an issue because I mute the RX, but on Sats I listen to the RX thru a headset. If you like I can send you a video of what I have going on. Now if there is a way to get SDR Console and Omni rig to run the RX of the IC-910 with the SDR receive and control the TX of the 910 that would allow me to just use SDR console for everything. The picture I am including shows how I have DX labs DX commander linked to the SDR Console, but without console being linked to omni rig it will not allow me to tell the SDR to use the IF of my transceiver. Hope this helps. Joe W4WT thanks for your input as well.

Frequency zoom using the mouse wheel opens numeric input window #bug

Thomas
 

The recently introduced feature "Numeric frequency input window pops up by double-pressing CTRL" has also introduced a side effect: When zooming into frequencies using pressed CTRL + mouse wheel, this input window pops up after each turn step of the whhel. It seems to me that the CTRL key, which has to be hold down all the time while turning the mouse wheel, triggers a second CTRL keypress event. In turn, this triggers the window to pop up. Unfortunately, this is very annoying. Would be great if this could be fixed.

Windows 10 (1909), SDR Console 3.0.22


Re: SDR console and SatPC32

Joe W4WT <w4wt@...>
 

Simon, I would think simply (easy for me to say!) allowing the "Up Converter" method that is in the External Radio setup to also work with the CAT ports should allow this functionality.  The desired frequency setting is being provided by Commander to one of the ports, the 10.8 mhz. (I assume in this case) IF signal is going to the SDR that is attached to SDRC and with the offset set appropriately it should show the correct frequency while displaying the IF signal.

Just a thought,

Joe W4WT

Hi,

 

There is none, just attenuation (ATT).

Hallo,

Back after some time I just re-installed V3.0.22 on my laptop with Win7 for the Elas S2. I had an older V2 and V3 versions which had been disinstalled before the new installation.

I understand on the forum that I'd adjust the RF gain but I'm not able to find it. Form some videos I think it'd be somewhere in the home bar after 'calibration' but apparently is not there. Do I need to search somewhere else or arrange some other setting ? I also tried to disinstall a couple of times and also deleted all the  past files in the users/user/AppData/Roaming but did not worked.

I'm feeling a bit fool as probably it's as easy as drinking a glass of water ...

Hah,

 

I was going to suggest that but decided it was a bit ‘daft’ 😊 . Very few Ethernet SDRs available these days.

Re: Which SDR for pan adaptor on a 9MHz IF output?

Hi Chris,

I don't know the FTdx-5000, but unless this IF output is specifically intended for panadapters, you will be disappointed when you connect any SDR there. The panadapter must be connected to any IF before the selective filters, usually to the first IF, if there is a filter before the tap point the bandwidth shown in the panadapter is almost useless.

My recommendation is to study your radio documentation and schematic before buying any SDR for panadapter. After trying it with the second IF output in my radio (not a FTdx-5000) and finding this output bandwidth unusable, I made a tap in the first IF (73.115 MHz) before the roofing filter. This frequency is adequate for using a RTL-SDR tv dongle, something so cheap that I installed it inside the radio and installed an USB socket in the back panel.

You say that you can not use USB, this limits very much the selection of the SDR receiver that you can buy.

Regards,

Ignacio, EB4APL

use a lif kit (downmixer from 9 megs to audio) and use soundcard in maybe?? (yes i now not ethernet ... grin)

those were my first steps in sdr (i used last if 455 kc and a 467 kc mixer)

my first steps were cause i wanted to receive drm on shortwave (diital audio broadcast on shortwave) ... with the software dream andi needed that low 12 kc if signal ... that was way before i had my trusty funcubedongle pro plus

.... but back to topic

hmm ... he wants to have a pan adaptor?!? ... maybe he should feed out the FIRST if signal (before any filtering) and use an rtl dongle then?!?

cause it is before filtering he then can see a wider bandwidth

if he then wants to have it on ethernet ... a raspi and rtl server??

just thinking what could be a  (cheap) solution with a wider bw as using the filtered 9 megs if signal

dg9bfc sigi

ps using rtl dongle is not nailed in stone ... just an example to stay cheap and cause there are ready to use soft solutions for a raspi/rtl combo

Re: How to upgrade an HF+ v R1.00.00>

Good catch, but luckily both use the same firmware! I remember somebody asking that on the Airspy Groups long ago, about the time I started getting my Discoveries.

From their 'products' page, if you scroll down to the bottom of each one, by copying the link address (I did it here for show), the same location for the firmware appears, so it is the same firmware!
