Re: New 7000/8000 Orion MKII Protocol 2 Firmware Topic

Apache Lab Anan 8000DLE with Thetis and version 2.0 Pre4 - when using diversity reception after pressing PTT around 10 times to simulate a QSO the receiver will lock up with 9+60db noise. It works again when Diversity Reception is turned off but the Anan needs a reboot. Have been able to replicate ...

Re: Amplifier two-tone test

Gary, I think it is not a noticable difference - if you compare the results of Rob Sherwoods PDF at nc0b.com/imd you can notice, that the IMDs are between 20 and 37 dBc on both the PowerGenius XL and the KPA1500. Most visible is the huge variation from band to band. I see also the variation of the c...

Re: Amplifier two-tone test

Anan 8000DLE Using 2 tone test with Expert 2K-FA I see -65db or better. I see typically -60 on SSB. Using 2 tone test with Elecraft KPA1500 (2XLDMOS) I see -50db. I see typically -45 to -50 on SSB. Both at ~1200W out. Disappointing as for other reasons I'm switching to the KPA1500, but from what I ...

Re: Amplifier two-tone test

Gary and Scott, yes, Rob Sherwood did this test to show the IMD-behave of the Amplifiers themselves - not using a feedback-output of the amp. The Anan with its own predistorted signal is a good source to do this. Comparing the IMD at the output of the amplifier with an Analyzer or other SDR-Radio wi...

Now with Firmware 1.9 and the sweep is stronger by accident (it varys more or less).

May be some user with an 7000dleMK1 (my SN 7000DLE 0121) can try that with FT8.

Re: ANAN-10 PA IMD performance

Conrad,

I don´t know how you measured this - analyzer overdriven ?? at 33dBm on Marker 1 ?

Analyzer should get max -30dBm at Input to show distortion free - but I think you know that.

So there must be something wrong with the PA saturation perhaps....

Can´t help you more..
