Re: 200D Protocol 2 users: what say you?

Hi Scott 4. Audio L/R are reversed, but this is easily corrected by using 'Swap'. Will look into this. 5. There is a 'ghost' bandwidth area that appears in the panadapter, exactly the same as the normal bandwidth image, but in a different place. It seems to move with the mouse operation. Can you po...

Re: how to controll this 2 attenuator ???

This is controlled from the main console via the ATT control. 10dB selects the 10dB pad, 20dB selects the 20dB pad, and 30dB selects both. If you select more than that the software starts to add in attenuation from the step attenuator IC on the SDR board itself. If you want finer grain control than ...

Thetis, poor VAC audio quality, and the resampler

If you are experiencing poor VAC audio quality with Thetis it is probably because you are not using the resampler properly. You can either turn it off completely, or develop some VAC settings that make it operate in a stable fashion. The latter is more work, but the reward is better audio quality th...

Re: First attempt at Thetis

But, yes, it seems like it needs to be fixed, changed, or something.

All, Getting a lot of random chatter on the P2 Orion build and Thetis. Would like to confirm or deny some trends.

Re: First attempt at Thetis

Re: Signal Generator/ Receive

Hi Bryan,

Far away from the radio right now, so I can't poke at it and see what you are talking about. However, I have used the signal generator feature on transmit. In fact the sweep mode works great for checking filters. But I thought it was a transmit-only function?

There is firmware that works. It is not publicly posted to the TAPR Github repository. When that will happen is anyone's guess. I can't get an answer out of anyone about this, either.

It's also worth noting that it is easier to see where the notch is if you use the spectrum display mode, instead of panadapter, panafall or waterfall.
