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 ...

Re: Noise Blanker ineffective

Hi Keith, That would be a very informative comparison and I am sure many would be interested in the results that you get. As far as the effectiveness of NB1 and NB2 with the ANAN platform, from what I can see, the default settings excel with strong staccato type impulse noise typical of power line n...

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 ...

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

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...

Re: Quick record on AM

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...

It appears that the default setting for PRO Latency is "4" which is where I have left it. I have not played around with any of the CTune features that Chris has been working on but I'm looking forward to checking that out very shortly! 73, Rob http://www.w1aex.com/archive/pro.jpg

I chatted with Ed-NP2G for several minutes today on 40 meters. He was running his ANAN-8000DLE with Simon's SDR-Console V3. It sounds great and even without APD it looks very respectable in the panadapter. My 200D is not yet able to run V3 as it locks up within a few seconds of starting. My guess is...

Re: Should I or not

The ability to adjust every aspect of the transmitter and receiver is one of my favorite things about the ANAN rigs. Of course the performance is an even better feature! I think you will enjoy whatever model you decide to purchase.

A quick follow-up after playing around with OpenHPSDR v3.2.10 this afternoon. The IQ tuning behavior with v3.2.10 is the same as v3.4.2 when CTUN is not enabled. The VFO frequency appears to be accurate but the displayed band of stations in the panadapter does not move at all. With CTUN enabled, whe...

Hi Tommy, As a long time user of a Flex 5000 I have to say that I had tons of fun with mine.
