Re: 2.6.9 Memory Tab

I am using 2.6.9 c3. Before thetis I had a memory list of about 25 frequencies and names. Yesterday I tried to load a new fx and name in Memory and it took the fx but also put the fx in the name column. I clicked on the name column to put the name in and it would not let me change it. Clicking on th...

Re: Frequency measuring question

Hi Scott,

That makes sense - it is still amazing that the system can process 1 millisec stuff. The error does not affect any operations. I just wondered why it happens and tossed it to the gurus! Thanks again.

Re: Frequency measuring question

If you want to play with fx measuring with your rig - look at a carrier on the phase scope and dsb function. If the trace is rotating slow enough to count how long it takes to do one revolution. Then compute the reciprocal of that time in seconds. That will give you the fx error in hz. To compute th...

Frequency measuring question

I have been noticing some errors when measuring frequencies when using my 7000, phase display, and DSB function. My 7000, and HP 3336 sig gen time bases are synced to a lucent ks 24361 gpsdo unit. When I input a sig (5100 khz) from the generator the trace dot should not rotate as the sg and 7000 tim...

Monitor in AM Mode

Been using 7000 for 6 months - great rig - no problems. Tried AM yesterday and works fine however monitor volume is real low and comes out of left earphone only. Works fine on SSB - volume LOUD! and output from both L&R phones. What am I missing? ;73, Bill, WA2DVU

15 Mhz AM reception

I have had my 7000 for 6 months and it is fantastic - no problems.

I have noticed when I tune 15 Mhz WWV the audio gain drops. Plus or minus 1 HZ the gain is normal. All other AM stations are normal when tuned for their exact FX. Any idea why this happens? 73, Bill, WA2DVU Cape May.

Re: GPSDO Tutorial?

Don't get upset if your GPS and WWV don't match. WWV at 10MHZ can be off at your QTH 1HZ or more due to our friend doppler. I am one of the "FMT Nuts" group and when measuring fx to a few Millihertz, a dart board is your friend! 73, Bill, WA2DVU

Just received my 7000. Is there any way to turn off rear speaker jacks when using headphones plugged into the front of the unit?

If not I can put switches on the speaker lines.

How do you turn on PTT in RCA jack on rear of unit?. I would like to use a foot switch. 73, Bill, WA2DVU
