Re: ANAN-100 Open-Collector problem

The open collector outputs are configured so that they are all transistor switches to ground. Asserting an output grounds that output. So what you need to do is set things up so that all outputs are pulled up via an appropriate pull-up resistor to whatever voltage you need them pulled up to. That wa...

Re: INSTALLING OR RUNING NEWEST THETIS CORRUPTS DATABASE ON POWERSDR ON SAME PC.

Tom, First of all, no reason to shout (all cap's). Second, I have here an 8000 that I use with both P1 and P2 firmware. My installations of the latest version of Thetis and PowerSDR do not interfere with each other in the slightest. It is more likely that having two radios on the network simultaneou...

Re: Tune PTT delay

AFAIK, there is no such function available in either the software or firmware. If you really want to automate this you could use DDUtil with a compatible external relay unit. I automate a lot of tuning related functions with DDUtil. However, DDUtil is capable of directly controlling my KPA500 via a ...

Re: selecting the right rig with PowerSDR

Marc, The reason you didn't find anything is because there is no such function available in PowerSDR. Unlike other client software, PowerSDR makes no attempt to discover and catalog all radio hardware units on the network. If you are using DHCP it will discover whichever one answers first and look n...

Re: Whooshing noise.

Can't help you on the whooshing noise, except to say my 8000 doesn't do that. The simplest explanation is that it is coming from your power supply. As for understanding the ADCs and whatnot, see this post: https://apache-labs.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=2644 It wouldn't be a bad idea to at...

Re: Anan 8000 fan noise

The fan control circuit provides no snubber action on the PWM waveform (edges are sharp) and this makes the fan noisy. The PWM is just controlled by a digital output of the Arduino connected to the gate of FET Q7. You could try adding a snubber circuit such as that shown in this topic: https://apach...

Re: Flashing ANAN 200 D with New Protocol

The most common problems are:

a) not downloading the file correctly

b) P2 firmware is not even beta yet, so it simply might not run on your particular serial number radio.

PIN and MAP checked are the default and that is what I'd recommend. You can try STBL checked and see if you like it better.

Re: Pure Signal / wiring/ ANAN 8000DLE

OK, here's what I'm seeing: absolutely no problems at all with any of the more recent tests, including the most recent QRO/external coupler test. Sure, there's some heating going on at the beginning of each transmission, two-tone or voice, and that's why you see PureSignal struggling to keep up with...

Re: Pure Signal / wiring/ ANAN 8000DLE

Where was the external coupler on this last test? On the output of the amplifier? Based on step attenuation values it would appear so. Run the test with the internal coupler and only linearize the radio, but run it QRO, i.e. let the amp do its own thing.

Re: Pure Signal / wiring/ ANAN 8000DLE

OK, not exactly the same (20M vs. 17M), but it looked perfect. Step atten. value was spot on. So nothing wrong with PS or the external coupler and cabling in this example. Now do the test where you linearize the radio but not the amp. In fact, just leave external coupler in place, between the radio ...

Carl, What I'm seeing in the latest video looks totally normal. There appears to be a little heating going on at the start of a transmission, but PS catches up as soon as that memory effect stabilizes. I'd suggest another couple of experiments to narrow down the issue: First experiment: do the baref...

Re: Beta release of linHPSDR

Based on the development path of piHPSDR as a historical precedent, it would appear that development may have effectively ended in the same manner as piHPSDR. If "ended" is too strong a term, then it is certainly on a very long hiatus.

Great job posting those videos! The PS Test 3 video was most interesting in that it showed the PS control panel and amp view windows.

Scott/Gary... Again, PowerSDR newbie question. I can't seem to get ALC above -0dB using either Line In Gain or MIC gain. What adjustment do you recommend to use? Max Gain in DSP > AGC/ALC tab? You have to use the ALC COMP meter to see how far above zero you are. Switch to that meter and report back

Re: ANAN-8000DLE - permanent ADC overload

Grasping at straws:

1. Try exporting and then resetting your database in PowerSDR. If that doesn't work, you can re-import your saved database.

2. Try re-loading your firmware.
