Gary, that link takes me to the Windows download page. I'd rather not rebuild my system from scratch.

Re: Windows10 2004 Update busted my radio

Yes, Windows updates can sometimes play hell with sound drivers.

I'm stuck at 1909. Every time I try the 2004 upgrade it fails at the second boot phase with no good error message and reverts back to 1909. Still haven't figured it out.

Re: Seq Errors Explained

If the seq errors are bothering you then the only thing you can do is to try different versions of the firmware to see if you can find one that better makes timing on your specific serial number hardware.

Re: Which one? Anyone compare them?

Phil,

I'm not aware of anyone having tried that one, but it sure looks promising.

I used a Brother P-Touch with a combination of white-on-black and black-on-clear tapes. I used leftover black tape to cover original markings that I didn't want to show.

73,

Re: Do not use APIPA when programming an IP address!

There is a difference between understanding and agreeing ;) Installing firmware will not change the assigned IP address, it is stored in a separate memory location in the hardware. Your choices are static, APIPA or DHCP. You only use one mode at a time. They all work perfectly fine, although with AP...

Re: fldigi WWV calibration - unstable

If it's not the resampler issue then it's either got to be a bad TCXO, or the hardware is somehow selecting a non-existent external reference, or something with the PC, although I'm not certain what the latter issue would be.

Do you have another PC you can try?

Re: fldigi WWV calibration - unstable

Please post a screen shot of your Thetis VAC setup window. It may be that the resampler is running in an unstable fashion for you. Do you see increasing under or overrun counters when this is occurring?

Re: VAC resampler instability at startup

Joe, Again, it has nothing to do with the sample rate. All you are doing by changing the sample rate is re-initializing the VAC and resampler. You can do that by changing ANY setting in the VAC setup window. It's the re-initialization that is important. And, again again, I'd recommend using a settin...

The controllers work with both PowerSDR and Thetis, and support for them goes back many versions so 2.6.9 is perfectly fine.

You don't need a PLC per se, that's just how I chose to do it as it is a very nice way of effecting station automation with DDUtil. You can use any of dozens of network controlled relay type products. DDUtil also supports more conventional type relay systems. There is no benefit to modifying the rad...

Re: 7000DLE MKII (Black Edition) Low Power

Yes, you need to adjust your PA calibration settings on each band. Be aware that the drive control is highly non-linear. You can adjust so that a drive setting of 100 equals 100W, or adjust so that you get an accurate result at the drive level required for your amplifier, if you have one. Either way...

Those clicks are most likely because your PC is not powerful enough to process loading Firefox web pages while running real time IF and AF processing in the radio software. Check how much CPU your PC is using to run both.
