Re: Andromeda???

The stream has to be cut into separate presentations - this will take place soon. It looks then like: Unbenannt.JPG And by searching around in the net i found a Thetis User-Manual as PDF from G8NJJ :: http://www.nicklebyhouse.co.uk/index.php/downloads/category/13-sdr?download=55:thetis-manual-draft-...

Re: CW QSK with the 7000

The AGC settings are not set as they shoud be for QSK after starting Thetis 2.7.0 a3: work around: after starting Thetis switch the AGC once to fast - and then back to custom then you will have full short recovery of the receiver in QSK Sri that we have no support at the moment from Rick and other d...

Hi Rafael,

thank you for your kind help. I see you have the PC-Version of the MK2 - I have it without but the same solid case.

Nex I will check the Ethernet connection between my I7-PC - and the MK2. May be there is the stream problem.

Will report here next week.

Hello Om´s, I think I found the reason, why there are so much artifacts - on Simon´s SDR-Console Site: The spectrum and Waterfall in SDR Console use DirectX graphics, CW Skimmer uses GDI / GDI+. It is possible that the two do not behave together well causing the SDR Console waterfall to stagger. Som...
