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...

Orion MKII old protocol f/w 2.5

Hi dear friends,

I just have got a 7000DLE for repair with f/w 2.5 installed. Does anyone have got information about this version and the .rbf file for download?

Please save your database first, then reset the database and restart Thetis, don't change any setting and check if the bottom frequency sc...

2.4 was an effort to allow the 6M LNA to be used on 10 and 12M as well. 2.4 is not released and will not be. 2.4 has a bug in it that may cause the overload problems on some radios. Unfortunately 2.4 was loaded onto a few radios that shipped from the factory that way. Anyone running 2.4 and experie...

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.

If the XVTR is set to 144 MHz which is a 116 MHz LO, the receiver will work on 28 MHz like it should do, but since t...

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!

Hi guys, two week ago I did repair a 7000DLE with a toasted RX2 input (on the PA board) and a frequency stability fault. The 10-MHz-REF-input on the OrionMKII did not work properly. Without external ref connected the TCXO was not supplied with 3.3 VDC, but 1.6 VDC instead. That was caused by a defec...
