Re: New -10/-100 16-BIT Hermes Protocol 2 Firmware Topic

Hi, Let me try to explain the problem: K19 switches the RX to ground while transmitting. So the ANAN-10 is able to run "Pure Signal" without modifications but there are major downsides: 1) Feedback level must be tremendous 2) Dangerous - if K19 shows contact problems your feedback level mi...

Re: New -10/-100 16-BIT Hermes Protocol 2 Firmware Topic

Hi Rick,

Tested Pre21 very quick - sample rate 192K...….no Pure Signal any longer.
Did 20 tests not even one tx with PS.....sorry, went back to Pre20.

But "thanks" for developing this further Rick!

Re: New -10/-100 16-BIT Hermes Protocol 2 Firmware Topic

Hi Walter, Just a quick feedback - using an ANAN-10 here, but of course same Hermes H/W as your 100 (non D-version). My ANAN is down to 600 mA....so total power consumption is just 7,2 W @ 12V. And I am using an external pre-selector as well which is included here. You find pictures here: http://ww...

Hi Rick,

Even after some more hours testing - all stable and all fine.
Think you won it - "The Star for your hard work" :lol:
Once again many thanks!

Hi Rick and all others here in our team Pre 19: - Tested that last night - results are similar to those of Daniel. No cleanup with PS or PS-A. Unfortunately not usable…. Pre 20: Congratulations Rick!

I just tried to measure how often that is the case…...nearly every 2nd to 3rd trial PS was down. What happens at your end if you just start transmitting 20 times for j...

Re: New -10/-100 16-BIT Hermes Protocol 2 Firmware Topic

Understood Mark..... Well, I have never had that on my 7000 but the percentage of modulation is a factor on the ANAN-10 / Hermes. I went back in my lab and did some analyzis. Even when modulating with a generator at full audio power right from the beginning PS-A fails frequently. As Arno stated befo...

Hi Richie,

All worked fine and stable…..thanks for all your effort and welcome back!
