Re: ANAN-8000 power supply (50 VDC converter) issue

Hi Roger,

thanks for the measurements.

I still have some readings which do not make sense to me. Please let us talk on phone. My email is dl8laq@darc.de.

Re: ANAN-8000 power supply (50 VDC converter) issue

Hi Roger,

I have got a 8000DLE for repair on my bench.

JP3 is set between 250ns and 325ns
JP7 is set between 175ns and 250ns

Could you please set your radio to 200W Pout and read voltage / current on the front panel (Vd 50V) and on your 12V P/S?

Hi all,

Re: Thetis 2.6.4: Major New Release

Hi all,

at clean start, after database reset, I get a fault message and as a result two strange frequencies on VFO A and VFO B. See attached pictures. I hope that will work.

I could import my latest database, with the 61.44 MHz warning, but Thetis seems to run.

Re: Orion MKII old protocol f/w 2.5

Hi Rick and Scott, the 7000 is a new one, but I don't know how old. There IS an issue with the 31dB-step-attenuator on the Orion MKII board and should be a problem with the T/R relay. I installed 2.3 to compare the behaviour of the attenuator with my own 7000, but to verify the T/R relay problem I w...

Re: ANAN-8000DLE - permanent ADC overload

Th only 25 MHz source in the 8000DLE is the clock generator U8 on the Orion II board, feeding FPGA and ethernet trx with 25 MHz clock. My 7000DLE receives this clock at a level below -130dBm.

Check if the 6-m-preamp is enabled even if you are not on the 6-m-band! That could be a database fault too.

Using the MOX button the PTT OUT is working like it should do in cw mode, 7000DLE and PA are switching to TX and stay there as long as the button is "klicked". No break-in!
