Re: Pressing Keyboard space bar for PTT causing constant switching and MOX lockup.

Sage advice once again, Scott and let me say that I really do appreciate that. By the way, do you have any recommendation to offer on a quality wireless mouse and keyboard to look for? See a lot of them out there when doing a Google search but you can never tell what your going to get until you thro...

Re: Pressing Keyboard space bar for PTT causing constant switching and MOX lockup.

Scott, you hit the nail on the head. No more RFI here. I set the Drive level to achieve legal limit into the antenna. Then I put a mix 31 toroid on my KEY cable into the front of the radio. Then I removed the mouse and keyboard and keyed the rig with my CW keyer. No RFI and the ANAN is stable as a r...

Re: Pressing Keyboard space bar for PTT causing constant switching and MOX lockup.

Thanks Scott and yes I will give the station grounding a go and see how that works out.
The fact that I don't get the RFI when running power into the dummy load suggests that I am not picking up direct RF coupling by the mouse, keyboard, and speaker cables. Process of elimination at work here. :)

Re: Pressing Keyboard space bar for PTT causing constant switching and MOX lockup.

Well I was wrong about not having RFI on the other bands. After more careful checking it's pretty bad for sure. Again, this problem only happens when I am running something over a KW on any band and using antenna. Into the dummy load...NO PROBLEMS. I have applied a large number of mix 31 clamp-ons a...

Is it possible to switch on/off speaker from HPSDR?

I would like to be able to switch off the speaker connected in the rear of my 7000DLE MKII while using my headphones plugged into the front panel jack. Can I do this or did I miss something in the User Guide?

Re: Pressing Keyboard space bar for PTT causing constant switching and MOX lockup.

I just ran another test, this time on 20m. No apparent RFI at full power at all anywhere on that band.
Antenna is an OCFD at 75 feet AGL and abt 90 feet from the rig. RG213 coax.
Got some cleanup to do here for sure. :)

Re: Pressing Keyboard space bar for PTT causing constant switching and MOX lockup.

Thanks very much for that information, Scott. An excellent shopping list. I'll have a go at it and see how it works out. It appears that I have a more serious RFI problem here than I thought. Whenever I go to tune my Acom amp into my antenna it will shut down HPSDR and I have to reboot the 7000. Tun...

Re: Pressing Keyboard space bar for PTT causing constant switching and MOX lockup.

Thanks Scott. Good idea. Running an ACOM 2100 at legal limit on the desktop here and no station ground available on my second floor shack. Just asking for RFI headaches.

Pressing Keyboard space bar for PTT causing constant switching and MOX lockup.

A new 7000DLE MKII s7 here. When pressing the keyboard spacebar to PTT on ssb or cw a relay (T/R?) inside the radio starts to chatter fast and the spectrum display dances up and down rapidly. Also, the MOX button locks up in transmit model Clicking on the MOX button puts the radio back in the receiv...

Can anyone identify these items shipped with my new 7000DLE MK II i7.

Unboxed my new 7000DLE MkII i7 received the other day from Gigaparts and found a small plastic bag inside containing what appears to be two small copper 1/8" thick plates (about an inch +/- square) along with some screws and nuts. Can anyone tell what these are and what they are used for? There...

Need help with Internet LAN connection for my i5/i7 7000DLE MKII

Greetings all. I am just now setting up my new 7000DLE i7 radio. I appears to work fine on all band/modes but I keep getting a windows popup window now and then saying it can't connect to the internet. Well sure, that's because I don't have a CAT 6 LAN cable connected to the radio and my router or t...
