Re: A "jangling" artifact on TX and RX audio, related to filter size?

Yup, just tested it this morning. NR2 has no effect. Buffer size didn't change it either. The filter size is where it was with the combo of the low-latency option. At 4096 it's so minimized, nearly gone, 8192 it becomes more prevalent again. So easy enough just run it at 4096 for me and it works wel...

Re: A "jangling" artifact on TX and RX audio, related to filter size?

Thanks Scott, I was kind of grabbing params until I didn’t hear it anymore. I’ll check tomorrow by putting the buffer size back to 64. I was initially at buffer 64 , size 8192, low latency and the 7 filter when someone pointed it out on my TX audio...and I had been noticing it in my recordings while...

A "jangling" artifact on TX and RX audio, related to filter size?

I thought I'd asked this before but maybe not. I've noticed an odd "jangling" like shaking a bag of metallic objects or shaking a metal chain that is an artifact on voice peaks that I can hear on receive with strong signals and it can be heard on my TX audio as well when signals are strong...

Re: SDRConsole and Anan 7000DLE MKII

I would try the .26 version maybe as .27 is the latest pre-release. The TX audio is better with Thetis though and you get Pure Signal as well. Been a while but I don’t think Diversity is implemented either. SDRConsole, though I love it with other receivers I have, is not a full function equal to The...

Re: Transmit Audio Monitoring Suggestions

I use two ways to do it. A multi port switch with a dummy load on the COM. Anan on the active port and a receiver on the 2nd port. With the typical Alpha Delta switch, there is plenty of leakage on the switch for the 2nd receiver. I use an RSPdx from SDR Play and SDRConsole with it. It has simple re...

I have a bunch of audio gear and have been playing with it since I got licensed really. With the Anan I’ve wired analog inputs and also done the VAC route with a USB pre-amp. They both work, but I prefer the sound the VAC/USB pre route.

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...
