Re: N1MM Radio Connection to Thetis

You should report that problem to N1MM.
There may not be a fix for it but he should be able to put in a warning at least.

Re: N1MM Radio Connection to Thetis

I wonder if N1MM or Thetis doesn't like the 3-digit port number. I know that's been a problem in some other software.

Can you try a lower port#? Especially in the 1-9 region ?

Re: N1MM Radio Connection to Thetis

I just tested using the TS-2000 and TS-480 entry from N1MM and they worked just fine.
You need to double-check the serial port parameters in both.
I run 115,200 None,8,1 in Thetis and N1MM shows SO1V 115200,N,8,1,DTR=Always On, RTS=Alyways On, TX=2

Re: New Protocol 2 Firmware Released

I have one problem with P2 and the ANAN 100. I'm running WSJT-X and the rig runs at < 10W.

Several times a day the transmit audio goes haywire which is obvious on the spectrum display...very wide noise floor around the signal. Power cycling PowerSDR brings it back immediately.

Re: JTDX level and ALC

I just tested with 100W out and WSJT-X and max power and Thetis TX Gain at 0 (I assume that's dB). Still show -65dB on the harmonics so nothing is being overdriven at all with 0dB on the ALC. I assume JTDX does what WSJT-X does and only puts on 97% of full power at full scale. Are you seeing > 0dB o...

Re: JTDX level and ALC

I did some testing and get the same with WSJT-X and have to run the TX Gain on Thetis at -4 in order to stay at -1dB on the ALC meter but that seems unnecessary. If I watch the transmit I see the harmonics at -65dB no matter how high I set the Tx Gain and the ALC never goes above 0dB...then again I'...

Re: New Protocol 2 Firmware Released

Color me confused as to which firmware is for the 100.
I tried the previous P2 and the audio in WSJT-X didn't last long before it became too noisy and "fuzzy" to decode much. Would that be a symptom of the current problem referred to?

Is there a way to tune without the external PTT being asserted? I have an ANAN 100, HLA 305 amp, and MFJ-998 tuner. The tuner has amp enable in/out that gets the PTT RCA jack and has the out hooked to the amp. I've only got about 2W going into the amp as that's all it needs to give full power which ...

Re: Antenna mute

I just tried transmitting on ANT2 and receiving on ANT1 using WSJT-X instances.
I still got decodes from ANT1 during the transmit so ANT1 did NOT disconnect.

Re: Antenna mute

27dB gain but quite possible when your tx antenna is real close.

I assume ANT3 is also disconnected during Tx? So in any combinatin all non-transmitting antennas are disconnected?

It should still work.
If not then something else is wrong.

Re: WSJT-X FT8 - OpenHPSDR 3.4.9 - 60M

You follow the same idea as PSK31 on 60M
http://www.arrl.org/60m-channel-allocation

Channel 1: 5330.5 kHz
Channel 2: 5346.5 kHz
Channel 3: 5357.0 kHz
Channel 4: 5371.5 kHz
Channel 5: 5403.5 kHz

And then set your offset to 1500 to put you approximately center channel.
