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?

Tune PTT delay

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?

I'm reading the instructions on my Pixel Pro 1B since I will be increasing my potential transmit power up to 250W. I found the Pixel gives me a 7dB increase in sensitivity over my dipole. It says it can output up to 1.3 watts into the rig when it is saturated. I can run a PTT line to the Pixel Pro t...

Took a peek through the code and there is an -autostart option -- but it gets a couple of error message during startup. So I made a patch that allows it to work.

Mark...could you do me a favor and change WSJT-X back to using "default" where you can select it?
It should still work.
If not then something else is wrong.

I do believe you only turn that option on when you have PTT on a separate COM port.

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.

Not as easily done as it sounds. Hamlib doesn't support transmit passband (yet). I think I may add that though. I wonder about the behavior on all the rigs that support this if we set tx passband to center freq +/- 70Hz say to allow the rig's passband logic to round as they may do. Most of the docs ...

Re: Filter WIdth

WSJT-X has split ops mode which does something similar under the covers to keep your audio at 1500-2000 offset from the rig frequency and avoid the harmonics. It's called split ops because it can use either rig split or "fake it" mode which uses VFOA only. RIght now I'm running with a patc...
