Re: Behringer CMD Studio2A for VFO A or B freq control

UPDATE: Issue fixed Turns out you must load the driver (found here: https://archive.org/details/cmdstudio2aDriver) I initially thought the driver was only to have the Behringer Studio2A be recognized as a sound card but apparently that isn't the case. After loading the driver the wheels now act as t...

Re: Behringer CMD Studio2A for VFO A or B freq control

Gary, thanks. Appreciate the reply. Which software are you using, Thetis or PowerSDR? I'm using Thetis which may be the issue.

Behringer CMD Studio2A for VFO A or B freq control

Anyone gotten one of these to work assigning the large wheels to VFO A or B for frequency changes? I've tried and it doesn't work correctly.

All the other controls, except the pitch blend controls, work fine.

My other midi controller, the DJ Control Compact, works great.

Thanks

Ron

Recording off air and saving to a wav file

Is there a way to record a signal off the air and then save that to a place where it can then be sent, say via email, to another ham? I know you can record and play back over the air but I've not been able to find where that file is saved and if its accessible. Similar question. Is there a way to re...

automating Diversity

There is a group of German hams who modified Thetis to automate the Diversity function to find the best settings of gain and phase to reduce noise. Their code is written for the Red Pitaya and doesn't seem to apply to any of the Anan radios. I thought I'd compare their code to Thetis to determine ho...

Re: Changing code for features you want

Bryan no, can't even do that which is why I think I'm missing a module in VS. The VCTool... error has been a constant.

Am going to continue to see if I can find the answer on the web. Or here.

Wondering how many, if any, of you have made changes to Thetis to implement changes you want and kept the code local (i.e. not published it to github)?

Re: RX2 issue

An update. Shortly after I wrote my post I went back to Thetis. Noticed I had stereo diversity turned on (the "SD" button below panafall for RX2). I turned that off and the signal went away and now I can receive signals via the antenna. This seems like a software bug to me. Thanks Ron N4XD

Don't know if this is a hardware or software issue. Turned radio on yesterday and had no external signals on RX2. Did have a constant spike, even with no antenna connected. It doesn't change as the radio is tuned. I.E. Its in approximately the center of the panadapter and, as you tune it stays there...

Thanks. That is very detailed and useful information.

I've requested the schematics, thanks for that tip.

Guess I'll have to dig into the radio a bit.

Re: RX2 not same signal level as RX1

I did find an old HP sig gen to use. For the same level of receive signal (I arbitrarily chose S5) it took a -90dbm signal into ant 1 for rx1 to get the S5 receive signal. For RX2 it took -40dbm so obviously there is an issue somewhere with RX2. Any help troubleshooting this will be greatly apprecia...

All good questions. I have swapped cables and no change. I.E. not a cable problem. I split the signal using a bnc T. Not ideal but for this, fine since its not a permanent set up. No, don't have a sig gen but there were a few very loud signals on the band so the difference was easy to see. Wondering...
