Phil,

Would love a copy for testing.

Hi Phil, 

I hit the same wall with OmniRig so would be very happy to give your compilation a whirl.

I have compiled a binary but haven't had a chance to test it, let me know if you want to give it a go.

He seems to have added quite a few transverter specific features as well which look quite good (if they work!)

SDR-Radio V3 stops after short time

 

After reading the article SDR Console - SDR-Radio.com Release: 3.0.4 January 28, 2019 by Simon Brown on CQ_NRW, I want to test the Software. 

I am currently running an ANAN 200D with PA Rev. 16 with FW Protocol 2 Version 1.5 and THETIS V 2.6.2.

The installation of SDRConsole version 3.0.5 Build 1413 worked fine. When searching for devices, the ANAN 200D was immediately recognized with the option BoardType = 4.

Radio Start, everything runs for about 30 to 45 seconds, after that the display for spectrum and waterfall as well as the demodulation stops. The software itself should still continue.
The display of the CPU utilization will continue to be updated. Also, the switching of the antennas should work, the clicking of the relays in ANAN is audible.
The PTT via SDRConsole works too. The LED on the network will continue flashing without changes.
After pressing the Radio Stop button, after some time (~15sec), the Radio Start button is reactivated and the radio can be restarted. Now everything works again for about 30 to 45 seconds.

I tested with 2 computers with WIN 10 and one with WIN7, no changes. Also no changes when using SDR Console  Vversion  6. 3.0.4 build 1374 or 3.0.6.  

The SDR console works perfectly with the FUNcube Dongle Pro +.

Is this problem known to you?

Can someone help me?

Thanks!

Hi Simon,

Hi Simon,

OK, this is interesting.  A little more research shows that the waterfall on Console and the display in File Analyzer are flipped left-to-right.  Or, one of them is anyway.

Screenshot-A -- a zoomed in look at 1359 kHz.  Note the transmitter starting and the carrier gradually drifting onto the correct frequency over the course of 10 minutes.  Also note how the vertical carriers are arranged.

Screenshot-B -- the view on Console over about 6 minutes.  Note the arrangement of the vertical carriers is reversed and the new carrier is drifting in from the right, not the left as shown in the File Analyzer display.  Note that the frequency display (1358.981 kHz) in Console was set when I clicked on the beginning of the trace in File Analyzer.

Screenshot-C -- the carrier finally stabilizes on approx 1359 after about 10 minutes as the File Analyzer display shows.

Screenshot-D -- this is just to show the frequency the drifting carrier started (1358.019 kHz) on in the Console waterfall.

Interestingly the frequencies of the starting point of the drifting carriers are mirror images around 1359 kHz; +/- 0.019 kHz.  I don't know which display to believe.

RX:  Airspy HF+, recently calibrated using a Leo Bodnar GPS disciplined oscillator.

SDR Console -- 3.0.6, Build 1443, March 10, 2019

I still can't calibrate Console to either my calibrated HF+ or to my SDRPlay RSPduo with GPSDO attached.  The (+) or (-) 0.001 ppm buttons don't work until you click them about 3 or 4 times.  Then the display changes more than a single click of either 0.01 ppm button.  This has been a source of frustration for me because I want to contribute to the Mediumwave Offset community but can't trust any of my measurements because of the calibration issue.  What kind of screenshot do you want for this.  Let me know and I'll do it tonight.

Many thanks!

Re: OMNIRIG - limited to 2 GHz

Hi Simon

No the new version doesn’t - tried that already. I’ve e mailed
the guys though so maybe they can come up with a solution, but
failing that Hamlib I know works fine, as I’ve been using WSJT-X and tested with various logging programs, up there.

The K3 and K3S have 9 programmable transverter bands so you can program in the frequency for each band, and
the rig displays the frequency, as well as sending that info out on the RS232 port.
I’ve not tried 10G but certainly up to 5.7 GHz here works fine.
NOTE : The manual shows support for
0 - 24999 MHz for any of the 9 bands so it will go to 24 G as well(!)

At any rate, I truly appreciate your work on this and it would be super duper
to have support on all the microwave bands as well., when using the various SDR’s
as panadapters etc.

Hi,

I do not have time to add Hamlib at the moment. There's a new, free OmniRig client which may provide the support needed but to be honest I don't think it will. If you see a reference to a new version of OmniRig with support for frequencies above 4GHz let me know.

I don't see how you are reading 10GHz from the K3, is this some up/down-converter option?

Hi Simon!

The latest version is playing fine here!

I had an e mail from ALex 3NEA and he confirms that his software OMNIRIG won’t go above 2 Ghz, due to code issues.
So I can’t use your software with my microwave stuff & my K3.

I there any chance you could add in HAMLIB?

It works with the K3 all the way up to 10 GHz.
I see some logging programs offer either/or., and WSJT-X uses it as well.
I’m sure it would be a pain to add but would be useful for external radios / microwave guys.
Would a few cases of puppy food do it?? : )

Maybe that will fix the problem I have noticed of the zoomed in display in Console and the Signal Analyzer display showing little resemblance to each other, plus signals in the Console waterfall that do not appear in the Signal Analyzer display.  

 

I'll wait for 3.0.7.
