Re: Antena selector relay fail.

If Scott's suggestion of trying different Protocol 2 versions of the firmware does not help, you might try moving from Thetis 2.6.7 backward to Thetis version 2.6.6. There seems to be something strange about the behavior of the Antenna matrix with v2.6.7, at least for me and several others. With my ...

Re: Thetis 2.6.7 some issues to fix on next release

200D Thetis 2.6.7 FW v1.8 Doug, I also see a startup issue with v2.6.7 about 10% of the time, however, I do get the splash screen and the GUI comes up normally. However, when I press the Start button Thetis does not fully start. The 200D is recognized and the software connects to the hardware but no...

Re: Thetis 2.6.7 Fatal Error at startup if certain Bypass options are enabled

Thanks for confirming that Phil. I've sort of given up on Protocol 2 for now, although I have found with my 200D that firmware version 1.7 works much better than v1.8 for me. The timing closure must be much closer to optimal for my FPGA as I get Pure Signal correction as soon as I start up (v1.8 wou...

Hi Nico. It looks like you are making progress with transmitting SSB. There are two menu settings in the Transmit menu tab that affect the power setting when using Tune. You can define the power that you want Tune to use by adjusting the value in the Tune power box, or you can enable the option to u...

Re: Do not use APIPA when programming an IP address!

Scott, As you said, who knows what mask assignment the ANAN actually has? Watching my ANAN subnet with Wireshark simply shows UDP packets happily going back and forth from 192.168.5.1 (the NIC) and 192.168.5.2 (the ANAN) with no cares at all. My guess is that if the ANAN and the NIC it is directly c...

Re: Do not use APIPA when programming an IP address!

The problem is that if you set the IP address of the ANAN with HPSDRProgrammer or Bootloader while the ANAN is directly connected and using the self-assigned 169.xxx.xxx.xxx APIPA address it will take whatever 192.168.x.x or 10.x.x.x IP address you program it with but it will retain the 255.255.0.0 ...

Re: Do not use APIPA when programming an IP address!

The advice posted by Chris is excellent and it is a good explanation for why some users are unable to make a static IP assignment work with a direct connection between their computer and their ANAN. I was not aware of the "sticky" netmask assignment of 255.255.0.0 that exists when an IP is...

Hi Neoklis, It doesn't sound like you did anything wrong as many of us have seen this.

If you change the file name so that it begins with the word Me...

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...
