Re: 10M Band Tuning

Siegfried Jackstien
 

Two ways to sync sdr and rig...
One way is. Select external radio and connect ftdx3k there... 
Other way is... Connect ftdx3k to omnirig on one port... And sdr console as ts2000 as second rig to omnirig...
Not?!?
Virtual serial port needed for console then...

1) No pictures. Simon LOVES pictures, especially when they show setup details.
2) Simon is busy right now with a paying customer and a deadline. So he can't
help at the moment.

Some things that might help when Simon can get to it include:
1) Picture(s) of SDRC that show its setup.
2) Serial port logs that show what is being sent to SDRC via the mousewheel,
which is placed where?

Re: key strokes in SDR radio software for a blind user

near any midi deck can be used ... so just search for one with enough buttons and knobs ...

i searched for a single deck (and lucky found the xp5) ... yes its no longer available ... (as far as i know the company does not even exist anymore ... they were good ... but calculated to close on the knife edge ...)

look for a deck with enough functions ... and ... with a mapping/customizing software where you can then programm auto repeat or other things

configure console is easy ... select function you wanna configure ... press the button on deck (or turn knob or wheel) ... and store what console got from the deck ... quite easy

configure of a button or knob in the mapping software depends on the deck used ... so it would not help to describe that here

Hi Simon, 

I recall reading somewhere that you were going to work on implementing a scanner in SDRC. Is there any guesstimate as to when that might happen? 

I realize you are constantly busy with work and SDRC, so I was just curious.

Hi All,


I have a problem with SDRCONSOLE if I put the radio FTDX101MP or FTDX3000D or FT911A in DATA-USB or DATA-LSB mode or even in RTTY-L RTTY-U or PSK.
SDRconsole no longer understands which MODE I am selected <MD>

These MODES have not been able to make them read by SDRCONSOLE and therefore the CAT always forces the radio in another FM or USB or LSB MODE preventing me from using these modes on the transceiver if the CAT is activated.

 

There is a possible solution?

Look up "PCALE". And if you are into EMCOM efforts join the "hflink" groups.io mailing list. ALE is not a really good fit for ham radio. It IS a really good fit for emergency communications at natural disaster levels.

Take a backup copy of hte file you play with then experiment. "What does THIS control do?" Software blowing up a computer with spitzensparken and all that stuff is Hollywood special effects. I only ran across one computer that had a "DETOMATE" instruction in its assembly language. "This function has no return." It meant the Minuteman missile warhead was sent the electrical signal to explode.

In recent years I've found that all I need is a backup of the file I am modifying. In the past it was fairly easy to cause a BSOD that required resusitative efforts on a computer. Over time you had to work more and more seriously hard to do this. On this particular computer I swear the level of software closest to the machine's USB hardware had a "crash randomly" instruction. Eventually ASUS found the problem and fixed it. At least the problem went away with a "keep your computer secure" BIOS update. Since then - no problems. So I fee safe recommending "play with the controls". Don't wonder "what does this or that control do?" Try it and find out. Worst case stop the program, restore the backup of the file you're playing with, and start back up.

Re: antenna splitter ?

Hasan Schiers N0AN
 

When I bought these, they were in a package of 5 for $19.95


The big need for me is caused by the 25-60w output from my 2/70cm Collinear which is 2' away from my Satellite rx antenna on 145.9. I also have a KW output 6m amp and the 6m LFA Yagi is about 4' away, BUT, that is taken care of by a set of back to back 2m/70cm duplexers in the shack giving > 60 dB of additional isolation. Also have KW out on HF to wire antennas suspended about 10' below the satellite antennas.

The 6M, 2M collinear and the Satellite antennas are all fed with 1/2" hardline, so there isn't a lot of loss to reduce that 25 to 60 watts of RF on 2m APRS from getting into the satellite antenna only 2' away.

Re: antenna splitter ?

NAN
 

Hi

The RSP1A specs state: "Maximum recommended input power  • 0dBm continuous, 10dBm for short periods"
I too expected the 7600 to have about 50dB or more protection in its internal TR switching but could not find this data to confirm. Based on feedback received, it appears there should be no problem connecting the RSP1A directly to the RX-ANT ports of IC-7600 without any need for additional front end protection.

Interesting thread to follow as I have a similar problem with the Anans when using SDRC VAC/VB Cables, WSJT-x/JTDX.

 

It only happens with SDRC and not with Thetis or PWRSDR.

I cannot hear it at my end OR if I record the audio using the record button in the TX DSP and play it back.

I cannot hear it over my speakers when I TX.

I have tried multiple Anan radios.

I have tried multiple computers.

I think I can see it on the Pure Signal plots in SDRC. This is why I tried a 10e too,

 

 

Receiving stations hear it very clearly which is obviously how I first found out about it.

They hear it when I am using any Digi mode via WSJT-x/JTDX via Vac BUT they also hear it 

when I use the TONE or TUNE button on the TX DSP in SDRC.

 

My intention was to have one of the RXing stations record their end so I can send it as an attachment.

 

I will follow this thread and make test changes as recommended.

I will use a set up with no internet and just CAT5 connection to the Anan.

If I have no luck I will try to document it better and ask more questions.

Thank You.
