Re: SDR Console issue Anan 7000DLE

Hi Al, Check your Windows Firewall for any inbound and outbound rules that are restricting traffic between SDR Console and the ANAN. The SDR Console software uses "keep alive" packets to assure that the connection is viable, which the Windows Firewall seems to block by default. I found mor...

Re: My Diveristy Adventures

Hi Perry, I'm not sure which ANAN hardware you are running but as Gary said, the RX2 port needs to be switched away from the antenna and grounded when you transmit. Some of the ANAN hardware does this internally, but some of it does not. My ANAN-200D does not ground the RX2 port so I use an external...

Re: Cannot Transmit CW (SDR-Radio Console 3.0.5 and Anan 100D)

Simon released another version on 2/26/2019 (v3.0.6 build 1431) which I just installed. It transmits fine, so perhaps there was something that got fixed as the 3.0.5 versions and the 2/25/2019 build of 3.0.6 would not work for me. I've only been running the latest update for a few minutes but as far...

Re: Cannot Transmit CW (SDR-Radio Console 3.0.5 and Anan 100D)

Hi John, I took a quick look at 3.0.5 and also 3.0.6 and found that my 200D would no longer transmit with those versions. I jumped back to 3.0.4 and all was well again. I did not go through all the menu settings other than the Radio Configuration menu, which looked fine, so I don't know what's going...

Re: Orion 5.2 firmware released (current protocol/Protocol 1)

My 200D is probably a lot like yours as Pure Signal would not work with 5.1 or 5.2, so I rolled back to version 5.0 which works perfectly. The two newer versions offer no additional features as Joe was exploring some different approaches in the firmware to see if the end result would be more compati...

How do things look in the display when you unkey without the amplifier engaged? Just wondering if the display is responding to a condition/event that is outside the ANAN or inside the ANAN.

Here is my guess: If AmpView looks fine, it may just be a momentary glitch in the RX as seen with DUP enabled as the rig transitions from TX to RX (or RX to TX). I found th...

Hi Rick,

I ran into the same problem as Bill - NL7F. In spite of the LED behavior at the ANAN network port responding correctly, Thetis could not connect to the 200D. The P2 Programmer also could not see it. The Bootloader utility took me back to P2_pre1 without any problem.
