Thanks, Mike.

I took some time this evening to export the transmitter sites from the HFCC database. If you'd like to add any to your list, it's just a simple cut-n-paste. Thanks for your list and getting me started!

SDR Console does an amazing job of making sure that the description windows don't overlap each other. That had to be quite tedious to implement. Thanks, Simon!

Hi Conrad

Have seen in another Group to use TS480 setting?

Hi,

 

You write or find the .ini filer for the TS-890s, someone somewhere will have this. It’ll be very similar to other Kenwood rigs.

Hello there is no OMNIRIG for the TS-890S as far as I am aware. Is there a solution so that I can have a proper band scope with point and click tuning of the TS-890S. I have it with the K3S with Perseus and I am very fond of it.

Neat looking, but as they they say in government contracts  "If you have to ask the price, you cannot afford it" :-)
I too am waiting on the tease from Simon, for the XXXYYY from ZZZAAA this year.

hey folks,

Re: SDR Console 3.1

Siegfried Jackstien
 

i checked with sync disabled .. .and still see that slight wobble in frequency (plus some very slow up or downwards drift depending on sun or clouds) ... on the beacon steady tone and on my received tone (that i txed in parallel) ... so it is my lnb that has the slight wobble ... but isnt the drift correction exactly against those frequency changes on the rx end ... if you have just a normal unmodded lnb with an xtal inside or a tcxo modded lnb (console does not know from where a frequency fault comes) ...

maybe simon has wrong loop gain (or damping factor) in his regulation of the compensation of drift ... is it a pi (or pid) loop?? ... is there a gain factor (maybe hidden in registry??) that a user may change?? (only for specialists but maybe there is such a factor??!!)

if i see the around 4 hz wobble with or without beacon lock enabled ... that tells me that there IS somethig wrong in the correction ... that wobble can have different reasons .. be it the osc in the sat wobbling ... be it the lnb wobbling

could not be the beacon itself cause it is exact same wobble when i receive my own tx signal ... they "drift" in parallel so to speak ... it is one of the two osc .. the local osc in the sat ... or the pll loop in the lnb (i am sure its not the sat ... but who knows) ...

should not the drift correction in console take care of also those slight changes in frequency?!? (another reason for simon to use his new feed i built for him ... there is also a tcxo modded lnb involved) ..

the slight wobble should not be there in my view ... AFTER the correction it should be a straight line ... not ?!?

is the correction "a few samples late" ... and causing an overshoot in both directions?? .. is the amplification (gain) set to low?? ... is there an "i" part in the loop (integration of fault over time)??? ... so many questions (i do know what a pi or pid regulator is ... in the industry it was may daytime job to set those factors)

simon sure can calculate the frequency offsets to tenth of a hz ... (only round hz values shown in the beacon window) so i hope that he also can compensate more precise

Sigi,

I guess you are mainly seeing the short time (in)stability of your TXCO and not the (in)stability of the beacon sync loop, double-check with beacon sync disabled. 

in my view the beacon locking should compensate this instability

With an decent OCXO based reference, the short time jitter is around 1Hz with beacon sync enabled and <1Hz with beacon sync disabled. Knowing the Allan deviation of my reference, my guess is that a noticeable part of the 1Hz is due to the transponder and/or RF path.

Hi, Simon.

I have the exact same record player. It's quite good, at least to my ears. Although watching the strobe to see if it's spinning at the correct speed can be a bit hypnotic!

You might want to consider getting a record stylus gauge to ensure the correct amount of downward force on your records. It's not expensive. If memory serves, it's supposed to be around 5 grams. But look that up. I'm not sure.

Re: SDR Console 3.1

BobS
 

A key advantage that today's record players have over any of the old ones is that they've solved the ground loop hum. I had a Dual deck from the 1960s. I spent months fiddling with it, yet the hum would at times be overbearing. One day I just threw the thing away and got the same record player Simon just purchased. I love my vintage radios, tape players, and such. But I have zero nostalgia for old record players.
