There will be support - better support (!) in 3.0.4 which I hope to make available in a week or so.

Hi all, After a long pause I'm finally back to the ANAN support, currently using the 10E with a Gemini HF-1k amplifer. Now testing with good results. See: https://www.sdr-radio.com/Radios/ANAN(ApacheLabs) for more information. If you are running protocol II and are interested send me an e-mail, I'll...

Rob,

Give me a week or two to get on top of the ANAN code, then we'll find out what's wrong. I'm guessing the ACK / keepalive packets aren't being sent.

Thanks for the feedback. V4 will never happen - like Windows 10 version is the last - it'll live as long as I do :) .

Re: New PC Build: now UPDATED with overclocking performance

One thing I do with new PCs is run one of the many utilities which sets the CPU to 100% load for ten minutes, this way you see how good the cooling really is.

My default for CPU cooling is water, GPU is fans but the fans always run, even if at just 25%.

Re: New PC Build: now UPDATED with overclocking performance

About the GPU (graphics card) - this is important when the software used OpenGL or DirectX graphics, programs such a PowerSDR, SDR# etc. don't, also a NVIDIA GPU can be used for FFT processing.

As far as I know, V3 of my own software is the only common SDR console using the GPU for graphics.

I also has a buzz from a 40 amp Diamond SM PSU. I have no buzz from my Manson SPS-9620.
