Re: Introducing the ANAN-8000DLE MKII

- 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: Which Transverter to use ?

Hi Tony, unfortunately not. For 4m I am using an internal Transverter for my K3 (made by EA7HG, IF 28MHz) However, I have created a test configuration and checked it with my 7000DLE/ DB6NT 432 MHz transverter (fooling it, HI) - I was able to hear a beacon on 432.473 with the reading of 70.473 MHz - ...

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?

Re: Anan 7000DLE Mk-II PA output.

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

I used the XG3 at -73dBm level (S9 on HF) as well. Please bear in mind that the level accuracy of the the XG3 will be in the range of +-1.5dB or so. Good enough.

ANAN 7000 DLE PTT on CW

Hello Experts, some external keyers using a winkey chip (e.g. MicroHam) offer the option of generating a ptt signal during transmission. This signal does key the orion board (RX is muted an MOX is visible) BUT seems not to key the PA unit. Somehow strange..... The switching of the PA seem only to be...

Inferring from the information already released it would seem to be the same PA board but with a better heatsink. I do have it on good authority that the fan circuit has been remade in accordance with the fan controller IC manufacturer's app. note, so no more square waves out of the controller. Sco...

Re: Introducing the ANAN-7000DLE MKII

Two simple questions:

1) Is the MK II PA board the same as the one used in the 7000 DLE?
2) Is the fan control system the same ("rattlesnake")?

there seems to be the same Molex connector for an external fan.......

Re: Anan 7000dle Sma tvtr socket tx and rx?

Steve,

the SMA Port provides TX output.
Taking a look at the schematics of the PA board you will see that there is no connection/path to the RX switching part.

Installed the new snubber circuit today. I agree with Phil. It works just like the one described previously.

The Indian Rattlesnake is not tamed but somehow appeased...... :D

Hopefully I have a little more time in the near future to try the internal fan on fixed speed.

Re: IMPORTANT UPDATE/DO NOT USE: 7000DLE fan noise fix

Yes, Scott.

No rattle but the fan is loud at full speed. Abt. 7-8 Volts should be ok while using an external controlled fan. I will check this next time.

Volker, Not sure if Scott is going to want to move this but - use DIG2 as an external keyer? Why would you put the radio in DIG mode to use it in CW? What am I missing? I DO have a microHAM Keyer II and I was not able to get N1MM+ to work driving the radio on CW ... not sure if this applies or not....

Yes Loren, the impact of the case temperature is noticeable, (almost) regardless of the power level. When you key down the transmitter, the output level rises slightly (abt 0,5 watts at 100W) and then slowly starts to decrease. Same at moderate levels (30 Watts) in almost the same percentage.
