Re: Level Cal adjustment for 7000DLE

I tried this of course. Yesterday I was not able to edit these values. The edit window background became blue.....
Restarting Thetis 2day and it worked this time. Now the S- meter readings are correct.

Very funny.

Re: Level Cal adjustment for 7000DLE

Last weekend I successflly moved from P1 to P2 (Thetis 2.6.8 c5) with my 7000 DLE. Checking my S- meter readings with my XG3 I noticed that they were 8 dB too low. So I tried to perform a level calibration on 30m like I did "in the old world" (P1) with PSDRmRX. But I was only able to chang...

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

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?

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.

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.

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

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....
