Re: Fatal Error Message.

Is it possible you have the windows display font setting changed to something other than the default? As I recall this will cause a fatal error that brings up a string of console errors when you launch PSDR or Thetis.

Re: Getting back on the air

Welcome back! Your best course would be to move to Thetis v2.8.11 which is the latest release. It's light-years ahead of the last PowerSDR mRX PS release which appears to be at end-of-life as far as any further development goes. Thetis version 2.8.11 will work with either protocol 1 or protocol 2 an...

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.

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.
