Re: 8000DLE Overheating

OK... further trials ended up with the overheating problem..

However, raising the front two feet up by 1 cm has made all the difference and I have not experienced a repeat of the problem.

I guess it's an airflow problem !!

After approx. 4 hours I was alerted by the Anan that it had overheated and had switched into standby mode. The display showed that it ...

Re: 8000DLE serial number label

;)

Mine wasn't even on the 8000DLE when I unpacked it - it had already fallen off !!!

I have taken a picture of it and saved it to my PC

I put the paper version with the rest of the paperwork that accompanied the $4000 radio (I jest, there was no paperwork with it - it's all on-line apparently)

Re: Orion Mk II 1.7 firmware released (current protocol/Protocol 1)

OK - Round 2 I have made progress - HPSDR Programmer has detected 8000dle and I have been able to load the 1.7 firmware I did have problems getting PowerSDR connecting to the rig but after a few power cycles all seems to be working OK. Thank you Scott for your perseverance and superior knowledge and...

Re: ANAN-8000DLE SWR Protection

Just a thought But as a newcomer to the 800DLE why are the Firmware upgrades so complicated? Admittedly once I got the rig apart it was relatively easy (apart from the erroneous scripting in the manual) Couldn't the 8000DLE have been designed to take all updates via the LAN or other dedicated port? ...
