Re: New Skins for Thetis and PowerSDR mRX PS

Hi Mark, The Rx Ant button doesn't actually switch anything off, it simply allows you to toggle between the Rx Ant that has been selected (from either ANT-2 or ANT-3) to the selected Tx Ant in the Antenna Control matrix. Jeff's implementation actually might make more sense than what has been done be...

New Skins for Thetis and PowerSDR mRX PS

W2NBC (Jeff) did some beautiful artwork and created a new button set and new sliders. He added some custom console panels and came up with some really nice skins. You can download the full skins, or if you would like to only install the buttons or sliders into an existing skin just browse to the bot...

Re: What client software are YOU using ??

I am using Thetis v2.8.11 for all the features it offers and the incredible performance it delivers. In addition to what has been mentioned above I would add that the Zeus Radio software is great fun to tinker with and it is fully RX and TX capable. It is not free but you can play around with the de...

Re: Thetis 2.8.11 ( 64 bit ) Power and signal level issues

I agree with Scott's comments Pierre. My move from v2.7.0_a3 to the 2.8.11 version went very smoothly. I did start with a fresh database provided by v2.8.11 but I had no problem exporting all my TX profiles from v2.7.0_a3 and then importing them directly into v2.8.11 32-bit and 64-bit. I use VAC to ...

There are two png files for the MIC button in the console folder of each skin. One displays the OFF state and the ...

Re: Anyone ever run Pure Signal with a non-linear amplifier? Say a class C?

Just being curious, I flipped the switch on my AL-82 and ran SSB mode with the amp set for CW mode. In CW mode the amplifier sets the pair of 3-500 tubes very close to cut-off. The short story is that Pure Signal corrected the amplifier without any issue. The tubes barely showed any color when runni...

The little square indicates that you are dropping frames. Go to the Display tab in setup and make sure that you switch to Direct X for your driver engine. You may find that you can set your refresh rate as high as 60 fps when Direct X is enabled. The panadapter and waterfall run much more smoothly w...

Re: Sampling after linear amp - worthwhile/possible?

In Thetis or PowerSDR mRX PS, look at the Ant/Filters tab in the menu settings and on the right side you will see a checkbox for the "BYPASS on TX" setting. That will direct the ANAN to listen on that port while transmitting.

Re: Sampling after linear amp - worthwhile/possible?

Yes, this is the preferred way to set things up when you are using an external linear amplifier. Pure signal will then be correcting your entire transmit chain which produces the most optimal result. My RF Sampler is an Xtronic X-DC1 which attenuates the sample by -43dB and I am currently using a fi...
