Re: New Protocol Update

768 would suit me just fine if that's possible. If memory serves the previous speed limited firmware could only run to 384 .

Edit: I should clarify I'm referring to previous new protocol speed limited firmware for hermes

Re: New Protocol Update

I agree, it would be a way forward if it was made an option and anyone who chooses can change to Thetis. . Only downside for me personally would be no stitched receivers .Was there not a previous version of firmware for the hermes that had speed limited to 100mbps?

Re: RX1 AF level with WSJTX

Scott I have the very latest "bleeding edge" JTDX and it does not have full automation so far. Given the amount of bad local TX's I would hate it if it did :-)

I also use waterfall zero and waterfall gain in JTDX software to get the waterfall looking right.

Re: RX1 AF level with WSJTX

Thanks for the responses guys. Using voicemeeter banana here so have the VAC Rx gain at Zero , RX AF at 100 and I then back off the fixed AGC so I get just above 30db on JTDX receive level indicator on 6m when no signal present . Just guesswork on my part to be honest as if memory serves I previousl...

RX1 AF level with WSJTX

Just curious as to what guys generally set the level of RX1 AF to when using WSJT X for best signal to noise ratio on receive ?

Re: "Sticking" Relay on ADC 1 and 2 Receive

Conrad you may remember my 6M LNA failed and even though I bought direct Abhi at Anan was able to arrange for it to be looked at in the UK and I think there may also be a tech in Spain, perhaps this might be an easier option than sending to India or USA.

Re: Microphone input

Hi Bill, yes you can do this , take a look at the check boxes on the VAC 1 tab that start with "Allow PTT to overide/bypass VAC for phone" , you have three choices depending on how you key up TX.

Re: New Quick Setup Guide for the CFC Audio Tools - 8-18-2017

Thanks Rob , you are absolutely right . Once in TX mode it all works , just had to make sure PTT was overriding VAC as I use VAC to feed mic in usually. Thanks for the high quality audio file, very useful for test purposes.

Re: New Quick Setup Guide for the CFC Audio Tools - 8-18-2017

Hi Rob, I made a mic recording using audacity and although it sounds fine on PC playback,when I use powersdr wav for replay its sounds way overdriven. Same thing happens if I use "quick record" on wav file controls . Any idea what I am missing ?

Some settings not saving

Hi guys, I have a TX profile set up for SSB audio which has CFC and TX EQ enabled but when I go to another profile and back again both these settings are unchecked . Any ideas on what step I am missing ? I click on apply, OK and then save the profile in the transmit tab.

Re: New PC Build: now UPDATED with overclocking performance

Further update, MSI released a new motherboard BIOS (Ryzen 1700) a few weeks ago and the ram is now running at the correct 3200. Running a primary buffer of 512 and VAC 1 buffer of 1024 and the resampler (great tool) seems pretty happy with low enough numbers over time. Also running a behringer UMC2...
