Re: Tuned freq always auto centers

Tony_AD0VC
 

That auto-center box is for "auto center on zoom". If you hover over that box, the tool-tip text says so.

My SDRC does not do what yours is doing but I am running a test team version. There is a setting to recenter when you tune to a frequency that is not visible but that isn't what you are seeing. I poked around looking for another setting but did not see one.

My config: RSP1A, RFHUP PAT board in 991A, SDR Console bandwidth set to 500 khz (and still can't get rid of those damn spurs)

The receiver display always shows the tuned freq is centered regardless of where I click. As soon as I click, left or right of center, that freq auto centers. On the VIEW tab I have "Auto Center" unchecked...see attachment.

I thought when I first installed SDRC it didn't do this. Am I wrong? I'd like it to not auto center.

Re: US bandplan

In the Editor I've unchecked or deleted the ones that are unimportant to me as some caused overlaps. 

How do I save these changes? When I started SDRC today they all returned. Do I have to edit the xml file or is there a way to export what the changes I made then use that xml?

Re: Adding my receiver to the server

Hello Kriss
 
Thanks for the information.
I've accumulated several of those type of limiters, some bought some home-brew.
 
I recently bought an "overdrive switch" from SV1AFN.
This device automatically switches it's RF input to a dummy load, as opposed to passing it straight through, when a preset level is reached. 
I had my switching level set to 0dbm as that is the limit stated for the SDRPlay range of receivers.
The limit for the Airspy range of SDRs is +10dbm.

Hi Simon

I assume You included the picture just for reference? Since this cable uses RP-SMA connectors, just be sure to check whether HL2 uses normal SMA or RP-SMA before ordering  cables.

Hi Conrad.
Thanks for your comments. I suspected that going from 14 to 16 bit would not make a huge improvement.
Have you placed an order on the Hermes board from Apache Labs for being used with a transverter?
My main use case would be that as well. 
Do you plan to use it with SDRC? Do you know if SDRC supports it?

If you operate nearby, either get a receiver front end protector or install a relay to disconnect antenna during TX or when personal rig is powered up. I use both methods or non at all if there
is plenty of distance between the TX and RX antennas. Server #2 have the receiver front end protector, server #4 has the relays, and #1 and #3 have no protection due to being +300' away.

I steal power from the auto tuner port, so when a user uses one of my remote HF TXR's or my own personal use HF rigs, the sensitive SDR's are protected. Here a crude Windows Paint drawing

In the original hammond box the connectors are supported by the back panel nuts, I never had any issues with this. There again I did not plug and unplug very often. Maybe you are right, might be better to use a bigger enclosure.

Re: Looking for a HL2

Hello Simon the original case is a Hammond 1455Q1601, which may be found here:

 

https://www.digikey.nl/en/products/detail/hammond-manufacturing/1455Q1601/1995453

 

I am sure that we can get someone to make a nice front and back panel, all the mechanical drawings can be found here:

 

https://github.com/TAPR/OpenHPSDR-SVN/blob/master/Hermes/Documentation/Hermes_Hammond_Frontpanel_Cutouts_V1.pdf

 

I can’t order from Farnell or RS here without a company account so I tend to use Mouser and digikey. I recently bought a 80mm super quiet PC fan which I intend fitting to the enclosure, it is absolutely inaudible. Of course I will only be using mine with transverters so I only need a bpf for RX and TX and minimal cooling. I made them last night.

 

I’ll look up the fan model number when I get home this evening.

Re: Adding my receiver to the server

Curt Faulk
 

Nice work, Kriss!

Thank you.


Re: Adding my receiver to the server

Kriss Kliegle KA1GJU
 

Here's a 'new' version of "How to make an SDRC Server"... a step by step, with images procedure. If the images are not here, go to the web gui and read/see them there!

1)  A computer that will be running 24/7 is needed for the SDRC Server to function. Old laptops are handy due to low power consumption and with a battery, they can handle brief power outages without having to be restarted. Since the minimum specifications are very low, I use older Windows 7 Netbooks that only have an Atom processor! This computer MUST have a static IP, otherwise it may change with every power reset. This is done using Windows Network and Internet Settings. Google how to do this for Windows 7 or Windows 10.

2) One must open a port in your ISP's router to allow TCP traffic from outside (WAN)  to the computer hosting the server that now has a static IP assigned. This varies WIDELY from ISP and mfg of specific routers. Google can help you there by specifying the exact model.

3) Start the SDRC Server Manager and you will see the following:



4) Lets start with the "Accounts" tab. Outside users will use an account appropriately named "Guest" in this example. A password is
needed and it does NOT have to be complicated and it automatically gets transferred when a user builds server definitions anyways.
I just happen to use the same one from v1.5 so many years ago. Be sure to place a 'Time Limit' and 'Interval Between' time to limit
server hogs and allow other users to access it. You can also add your own private account (longer times, no interval between) as to access
the server while out on the road (WAN) or while within your network (LAN). Since my servers are mostly out in the repeater shed or barn,
I access them via remotely 99% of the time. When done hit OK



5) Next hit the Radios Tab and make a radio definition providing the SDR is connected and previously working 100% via SDRC.
Process is similar to building definitions in SDRC, use the "Search" button for USB connected SDR's such as Airspy and SDRPlay.



6) When SDR is found hit "Add", if you have more than one SDR to make available, repeat the Search step, but do NOT hit "Replace", hit "Add"!



7) When done with radio definitions, hit "Save"




8) Skip "Firewall", this is where you can 'Whitelist" or "Blacklist" IP addresses. Not needed unless you have
a user that abuses your server.

9) Open the "Network" tab and there's plenty to set here!
        A) You want to place the port you opened in the router and is forwarding TCP packets to the server computer. 
        B) Open the port in Windows Firewall by pressing "Add Port"
        C) Turn on compression and set the max bandwidths for LAN users (you via a computer w/in your network) and WAN users (Internet users). The WAN setting may have to be adjusted
             to your ISP's upload bandwidth. Try running a speed test from a web browser and see how much upload capability you have and adjust the WAN bandwidth accordingly. The HF Airspy's                 are either 768 or 912 kBs so 1MHz bandwidth will allow external users the limit of the SDR.
        D) Users can be either 1, 2, or how many SDR's are available. This is limit of how many incoming connections from the same IP address. I have mine set for two so folks can do an A/B test                 to compare SDR mfgs or antennas that may be connected to the various SDR's.



10) The "Welcome Tab" is what's displayed when users click on "Server Options", "Server". Here is where you can describe the
       station setup so users know what they are using. An email address is handy for comments and issues with the server too!





11) Next is the "On Air" tab
     A) Place the exact name and password used in the 'Accounts' tab for guest users or guest will have to ask you for them. These are exchanged automatically with the remote users when 
          they build definitions.
     B) Do NOT change the data in the red box, that data is how your server talks to Simon's server to show your server is on the air.
     C) Give the station a useful, unique name such as your call sign. This helps when the server is locked up and somebody can email you to alert you via what you have in QRZ.com or                            elsewhere.
     D) IP Address can be left if you have a static public IP address. Mine changes every month, so I use a free DYDNS service that resolves my public IP address. Not sure if the default setting                (blank) will update with every IP change, so I just use the free service.
     E) Antenna, Location and comments are viewable to users when building definitions. VERY handy if, for example, I want to use an HF server that has a 'real' HF antenna and not an indoor                  piece of wire. It's painful when you build a definition, only to find out that it's VHF/UHF only when you wanted HF or visa versa.
     F) When done, hit "Save"!




12) The Service Tab is last:
      A) BEFORE using as a server, ask yourself if this computer is going to be permanently used as a server, if so, keep the 'Start Type' default which starts the server (A Windows Service that runs in the background!) every time the computer is turned on. If it's not checked, one must run the Server Manager to start every time. Herein lies the problem, users experiment with the Server Manager, then give up. In the background, the Windows service is running (can see it via task manager)... constantly pinging Simon's server saying I'm here, but in reality there's a router port not open, Windows firewall port not open, the IP address of the server computer has changed, etc. Those are the servers listed with the yellow triangles with an exclamation point inside on the list of servers. So, if the installation is permanent, leave it checked. If the computer is going to be purposed for some other task, remember to uncheck it and use the "Remove" service button!





13) When the install button is hit, the server will start sending data every 30 seconds to alert Simon's server and allow external users to 'see' it. After 30 seconds, if all goes well,
       you should see the following under the "On Air" tab:



14) You can monitor your server's activity via the following link, and also get an idea of where activity is. Only the center frequency and bandwidth is available, but maybe soon the actual frequency in use will be made public?

Re: Looking for a HL2

Conrad, PA5Y
 

Yes, I ordered one and yes, I will be using it with transverters. Glad that Simon will look at SDRC/ANAN, this will be the first time that I have used SDRC on TX. As there are a few of us can we organise an enclosure?

Hi Conrad.
Thanks for your comments. I suspected that going from 14 to 16 bit would not make a huge improvement.
Have you placed an order on the Hermes board from Apache Labs for being used with a transverter?
My main use case would be that as well. 
Do you plan to use it with SDRC? Do you know if SDRC supports it?
We could perhaps have chat a Skype one evening Conrad to discuss this.

I’ve ordered one, I expect SDR Console supports this but to be honest the Hermes / ANAN support does need TLC, so here’s a good reason to improve the support.

 

Planning to use this with a 4m transverter.

Very tempting but (as I already have HL2) I will be waiting for the new Hermes Lite version that 's already being planned. It's already looking exciting (and a less money!). Must admit the Anan board is tempting because of having 6m which sadly Hermes Lite does not, nor likely to, but I have stack of old MM transverters to play with and press into service with the HL2.
