Re: Thetis- MIDI and CAT Control Interaction

Scott, my station is only half SDR. I am using a Microham MK2R+ to manage my K3 and my ANAN (SO2R). So I have connected my ANAN (Thetis) to the Micromham router using COM1 of my PC (getting 2 virtual ports back via Microham USB connction and controlling my Ultrabeam antenna). Might sound a little bi...

Thetis- MIDI and CAT Control Interaction

Hello, during the last UHF Contest I was using my 7000DLE as an exciter for a new 70cm transverter (Thetis 2.7.0, Hardware Com port 9600 Baud to Microham device, MIDI DJControl Compact). Any time I was suffering from VFO overshooting when turning the VFO wheels quickly. Disabling CAT contol solved t...

Re: OC CONTROL TAB

Forget about OC, run serial using DDUTIL which can control SPE amps. I finally succeeded in coupling with my ACOM via DDUTIL.
No worries

Re: DDUtil Question

Scott's hint (checkbox "DEMO/HPSDR" in DDUtil > Setup > Features) was all I needed. Works now, even with microham virtual port assignment. DDUTIL seems to be fixed to 9600 baud com port speed. Higher speed would be appreciated. Is there any chance to choose a different speed? TNX Volker

my question:
did you keep the shielded leads AND the 0.22 caps or did you remove them?

Re: 7000DLE Mk-II PTT IN issue?

Exactly!
I am using a Microham MK2R+ (internal Winkey chip) to key both my 7000DLE and my K3 in SO2R. An external PTT hardware contactor did never switch any of my ANANs into (CW) transmit mode. This would be highly appreciated....
As far as I remember, this is not a new discussion.

Restarting Thetis 2day and it worked this time. Now the S- meter readings are correct.

Hello Roger,

yes, it's a new fan from NMB running at fixed speed. I am happy with it. As far as I've been told, all higher serial numbers of model 7000 DLE were supplied with this fan.

- I do not see a dedicated transverter RX input, is it missing or does the 8000 MKII have a combined RX/TX transverter port?
- RX/TX switching with (noisy?) relays or quiet PIN diodes?

hw?

Re: My latest MIDI controller opus

Hello Scott,

- when I try to configure the right button "1" you are using als "SQL" on my DJ Console Compact, I get the same ID reply as I get from the right wheel (49). So I cannot use both at the same time. Did you have the same problem?

Gary,

I did not expect this from the new MKII. I have been suffering from low output/ high IMD (without PS) on 10 an 17m with my 7000 DLE right from the beginning.

Good luck
