Re: N1MM+ with PSDR mRX on CW

Scott, I'm at a loss as to what "mis-configuration" i could have had. There really isn't any rocket science here - there are only a few settings that come in to play. Actually, not sitting at that computer and just thinking about - just the two come to mind "Primary and Secondary"...

Re: N1MM+ with PSDR mRX on CW

unfortunately my 8000DLE failed yesterday ... I am working with Doug on a solution. Strange that others also had problems doing this - and yet lo-n-behold "its easy"! I'll try again when I have this resolved. Its good to know you are at least getting it to work. By the way, even though I t...

Re: CW Mode Operation

Hi Prem, Sounds like great progress is being made! Super job my friend. As for your last questions - I'll let Scott or others answer these. CW might not lend itself to the use of VAC other than for CW Skimmer use. I believe I can say that MON will only work from the radio FPGA and won't work externa...

Re: CW Mode Operation

Change the break in delay setting seen just below the APF window when in CW mode. Just be aware if it is too long you might miss the first element of someone replying to you! The relays CAN be annoying. They're not quiet that is for sure.

Re: CW Mode Operation

Prem, Can you tell me where exactly, IC and pin number that you found to be not soldered correctly? It seems odd that this happened on one connection since the key line is 2 lines, and you were obviously seeing iambic operation (both lines active) ... and if it were MOX related then you'd see it go ...

Re: CW Mode Operation

Re: CW Mode Operation

As I suspected - hardware very rarely fails. So its not the buffer. There is some weird state - something programmed that has a bearing on it. Note that it doesn't have to make sense. There was an issue in an earlier version when I first started using the program where there was a parameter called &...

Re: CW Mode Operation

Prem, Ok - looking at the power meter it does look like it is transmitting something other than a pure carrier - it looks like it is turning on and off ... and you have nothing connected to the CW jack on the rig? It almost looks like it is alternating between dits and dahs which is what it would do...

Re: IMPORTANT UPDATE/DO NOT USE: 7000DLE fan noise fix

Volker, Not sure if Scott is going to want to move this but - use DIG2 as an external keyer? Why would you put the radio in DIG mode to use it in CW? What am I missing? I DO have a microHAM Keyer II and I was not able to get N1MM+ to work driving the radio on CW ... not sure if this applies or not. ...

Re: "Sticking" Relay on ADC 1 and 2 Receive

I've seen this myself on RX2 - a good number of times. One of these days I'll not be in QSO and I'll try to track it down leaving it that way... but definitely it loses the antenna and cycling the PTT corrects it.

Re: NB/NB2 and Pan display on SSB-TX jumps around

Yes - that's it - but I see it with PS off as well so I don't think there is any dependency there... note if I'm running both RXs and I turn RX2/NB2 on it doesn't do it - only with RX1-NB2. I think the simplest solution would be to turn NB/NB2 off while transmitting ... or of course find what is cau...

NB/NB2 and Pan display on SSB-TX jumps around

For me at least - if I have either NB or NB2 turned on and transmit on SSB the displayed transmit waveform will jump around as I talk... vs. if I turn NB/NB2 off it is stable. My suggestion is for the software to turn off NB/NB2 while transmitting ... note this is independent of PureSignal and is ho...

not sure why the suggestion is or the focus went to the dot or dash lines - if they were pulled down then the radio would be producing dots or dashes! My understanding is that it is just going to TX period, "as if we pressed MOX button" ... if these lines go directly to the FPGA (whether t...
