Re: 8000 DLE with SPE 1K FA

Thanks Scott, It is working. The drive power is much less than I thought. I was thinking I needed 30 Watts and I'm using about half of that. I set the Cat tab to ID as TS-50, enabled the PTT Control and I used Com 1 at 9600-n-8-1. I have the PTT connected from the back of the transceiver to the PTT ...

Re: 8000 DLE with SPE 1K FA

Thanks for the info Scott.

I was under the impression I needed to tell the amp I was using a Flex.

I'll try the pin change. I'm NCS on the QCWA net in the morning but I'll try the changes in the afternoon.

8000 DLE with SPE 1K FA

I'm trying to get this working and have not had much luck. I did get the amp to follow the radio via RS-232. I have tried DB9 DB15 Pin 5 Pin 4 Ground Pin 2 Pin 1 TX 232 Pin 3 Pin 9 RX 232 This let the amp follow the radio band changes but put the drive level at 100 percent. I could turn the output o...

Re: 8000DLE Diversity Setup

I am lost, I am new to Apache Labs products and I have no ADC2 on my 8000. I have a RF1 but you both agree that isn't it. What am I missing?

Re: CuSDR64 v0.3.3.0 (Feb 2017 Release)

I gave the latest download a try. The radio setup didn't show a 8000. It looks good on my hardware. It also has the German 40 Meter allocation not the US. Maybe I missed a setting.

I loaded the LCDtest.pde and clocked on the check icon (Verify). I get ERROR compiling for board Adruino Nano. Any tip...

Re: Lower lever for a usable computer.

I met those whammys when I was trying to get this going. I tried several times to get W7 install disk to boot and all it would do is hang. Linux would at least boot on Ubuntu 16.10. I went with Ubuntu 17.04 install (new for the Ryzen 7) and ran it on Linux for a month. I gave up and bought W10 and I...

Re: Lower lever for a usable computer.

Thanks Scott,
I have an AMD quad core with 8 Gig of memory for my rig control and logging computer. It has on board video so I's not too great in the Passmark test. I guess I should consider 8 cores and a decent video card.

Lower lever for a usable computer.

Hi All,
What is the lower lever for a usable computer that will handle the processing needed for an Anan 8000DLE? I read that an I3 is the minimum. Is there a Passmark rating to gauge this by? Where does the I3 rate?

I went outside and cut some branches for my wife. The CPU has cooled to 93.3F. 100 C would be warm.

Re: New PC Build: now UPDATED with overclocking performance

The CPU mark is 11918, that is a Ryzen 7 1700 at about 3GHz. Inside temps are around 100 degrees. I'm not thrilled I needed to buy Windows 10 to make it work. I did want a better video card so I can use SDR Console with my HackRF and my LimeSDR.

I have not done any overclocking but I thought I would test this for grins and giggles. I got a PassMark Rating of 34...

Re: Serial port for logging and amp control

Thanks Scott.
I'm using the amp with an Icom 9100 and the CIV port for band change. I will go with the serial port on the back of the amp for control and the logger will do the changes in the control program.

Serial port for logging and amp control

Almost 10 years ago, I had a Flex 3000 and used DDUtility for interfacing interfaces external to the radio. I'm using AC Log and have an SPE FA-1K amp I would like to use. Suggestions and advice are welcome.

I have a mostly new Anan 8000DLE and I have been reading most of the day from owners that have put one of these in service. I got a second Gig network setup and confirmed that it is at Gig with a switch. The things I was looking forward to I can't do. Before I do anything I have to rewire the main p...
