Re: Accuracy re fidelity on/with the TX display while using PS

Hi Stu, I set the RSP1 up with a 6 inch whip antenna and positioned it about 2 feet from my dummy load antenna. After a few test runs I found that it was necessary to disable the AGC in SDRuno to prevent it from "hunting" for a level the RSP-1 was happy with. I think this is an indication ...

Re: Accuracy re fidelity on/with the TX display while using PS

Hi Stu,

I never thought to try that so I'll have to check that out to be sure. When I make my usual run of the bands tomorrow morning I'll set things up and take two screenshots so you can look for yourself. I'm betting they will be pretty close.

73,

Re: Accuracy re fidelity on/with the TX display while using PS

I love my SDRplay RSP1 as a bench tool for doing audio checks and visual signal IMD checks of my ANAN. It's relatively cheap (120 bucks at HRO) for a VLF through 2.0 GHz receiver and the SDRplay hardware runs SDRuno, SDR Console, SDR# and probably a few other pieces of software I haven't discovered ...

Re: Feature interaction between monitor and AM

Hi Stu, I'm not sure if what I see while running AM is the same as what you are reporting, but I stopped running Pure Signal on AM because the MON function only returned audio in one side of the headphones, and it was not particularly useful because it was "predistorted" audio. At times, w...

Re: Thetis ETA for release ?

Thanks for the summary Scott. The timing closure problem is certainly a concern for all current and future owners of the ANAN hardware as it appears that in spite of the best efforts of our talented guys who are doing the heavy lifting with firmware development it looks like Quartus Prime Lite is no...

Re: Quick record on AM

Hi Gary, Glad that worked out. As Walter (DL2XY) mentioned, the REC and PLAY buttons in the GUI only record audio and are intended for re-transmitting a received station's audio. It's important to enter TX mode before hitting the PLAY button for this to work as intended. The "Wave File Controls...

Re: ACC port on 200D not seating well

One easy thing to try is to install washers under the screw heads of the DB-25 male connector you are plugging into the port. I use a small lock washer under each screw since they are thicker than a standard washer. This keeps the screw from bottoming out in the ANAN's DB-25 female port so that the ...

Hi Keith, That would be a very informative comparison and I am sure many would be interested in the results that you get.

Re: Noise Blanker ineffective

I would echo Gary's experience with the NB and NB2 implementation. I don't often have line noise "buzz" after the power company replaced all the poles, transformers, primary and secondary wiring and all the associated hardware in my area several years ago. That being said, there is a 34KV ...

Hi, I moved from version 5.0 to 5.2 with my ANAN-200D (REV 24) and found that Pure Signal would no longer function. Same report and symptoms as Erwin mentioned with version 5.1 (the rig behaves as if the RF feedback path is not connected to the rear panel bypass port). I reverted back to firmware ve...

Hi Rick, I operate a lot of AM with my ANAN and have used the REC button in the software GUI to make recordings and then play them back over the air with the PLAY button. You do have to be transmitting before you hit the PLAY button for that to work correctly. I have also used the WAVE recording for...
