Re: fldigi WWV calibration - unstable

I had this instability problem poke its head up again and I think I finally have it nailed. I toggled the buffer latency to manual and dialed them in and I also toggled both Force options in VAC1 Monitor section, checking the Force box. It's dead stable. I think due to vagaries of other apps running...

Re: FT8 and ANAN 7000dle Mark II, black edition

To work digital modes you need two cables. One is the CAT control and Omnirig provides the serial cable to tie the digi mode software to the radio. You enable CAT on the Anan for one of the ends of the cable and you point the digi mode software to the port for the other end of the cable. Now the two...

Re: fldigi WWV calibration - unstable

This was all due to Malware Bytes being installed, I had Thetis whitelisted too but it did something to manipulate the packet flow. This software caused a bunch of other issues as well, losing control of the hardware as an example. I removed it and now everything is running very very well again. Eve...

Re: New 7000/8000 Orion MKII Protocol 2 Firmware Topic

Yeah I had the Thetis versions all whitelisted to be ignored as well but that didn’t stop the issues. I think they were just handling all packets.

A few days in now, everything is running better than it ever had now that Malware Bytes is uninstalled.

Re: New 7000/8000 Orion MKII Protocol 2 Firmware Topic

I've confirmed the issues I was having were all a result of having Malware Bytes installed.

There is a chance I've found the issue... only a handful of hours into it so far. I stripped Malware Bytes out of my system, it had a major version update about when 2.8.x dropped. They added "features" to it, even though I disabled them as an override. After removing it and rebooting to e...

Re: New 7000/8000 Orion MKII Protocol 2 Firmware Topic

This _still_continues_ and it was unfortunately not RF. I'm losing control of the radio without any sign of it happening until I go to PTT or tune etc. I've narrowed this down to either Thetis or the firmware. The audio continues to come through so it isn't the OS network link or that wouldn't work....

You may even need to go back to 1.9 or possibly 1.8 series revisions. OK thanks, will see if it continues as stable with the 2.8.9 now. it was reasonably stable ...

Re: Windows10 2004 Update busted my radio

Just anecdotal, but I’ve had to increase buffer sizes since that update and have the issue with sdrconsole both with the Anan and also with an SDRPlay. No definitive cause as Windows is a black box to me.

I have it working but at increased latency.

fldigi WWV calibration - unstable

I've been stumped for several days on this one. Running fldigi, using VAC for the audio, all was perfect, WWV calibration was dead straight. Same firmware, same software, ran for a few weeks, consistent and solid. I fired up the other day and saw the signals on the waterfall wobbling all over, so I ...

Re: Packet Radio ?

ARDOP and VARA are the new sound card modes for Winlink and of course there is packet as well. With packet you may need to tweak some things to get the RX and TX timing to be fast enough. I’ve not tried it with the Anan. They will all set up with VAC as with any other sound card mode. I like the UZ7...

Re: OH NO--- Ruined!

Have you tried audo via VAC or a PC microphone? Do you have another mic/connector you can try?

If you run the tone test or hit TUN, does it still produce output?

Throw a VOM on the mic cable assembly and just check that you have continuity where you expect it.

Just curious if anyone has ever tried what the results would be with SSB through a crude non-linear amp like a class C while using Pure Signal? Does it correct enough to allow for use of a crudely designed amplifier with maybe a very minimal low-pass filter. Just daydreaming about cheap and easy amp...

Re: Low sensitivity and low noise floor

Just a generic comment. Digital modes even with the on/off cycle of FT8, are high duty cycle. It's much like AM or FM while transmitting. I don't run any of my 100W rigs above 25W on digital modes. I know people out there say to give it hell on FT8, but I disagree after many years of running keyboar...

A tip. If you use Audacity to record test or voice keyer wav files, you can apply the amplify Effect to 0db with no clipping allowed and save the wav after that.
