Re: software to use as a VNA

Ben, I just installed the Hermes VNA software and it runs fine on my Windows 7 computer. It connected right up to my ANAN-200D on its little private subnet and patiently waited for me to figure out how to run a simple plot. I ran the calibration procedure (open circuit, short circuit, 50 ohm termina...

Re: software to use as a VNA

Hi Ben, I did not reply immediately to your post because I hoped that someone might have more information than I have. I have not personally used the software at the link below with either my ANAN-100 or my ANAN-200D but perhaps others have, or maybe Phil VK6APH will jump in with comments on the sta...

Re: Foot Switch Install

I use the rear panel DB25 for PTT with my 200D: Connect one lead to pin 13 (PTT) Connect one lead to pin 21 (Analog Ground) When the connection is closed between those two pins you will transition from RX to TX. Note that pin 25 (Analog Ground) can also be used for the ground pin instead of pin 21 i...

Re: ELECTRO VOICE RE320 THETIS v. PWRSDR

Hi Mark, I believe the Angelia board MIC jumpers are in the same area as the Hermes MIC jumpers, right behind the 1/8 inch input jacks. With my ANAN-100 that I sold last year it was about a 15 minute job to drop the front panel and reach in with tweezers to arrange the jumpers as needed. Add another...

Re: 15 Mhz AM reception

Hi Bill, Keep an eye on the ATT field down at the lower left of the GUI. I think above and below 15 MHz you will see a different attenuation level by default when you tune either lower or higher than 15 MHz. If you set the 15 MHz ATT level to the same as 14.999 and 15.001 the RX behavior should be t...

Re: New Quick Setup Guide for the CFC Audio Tools - 8-18-2017

Glad you have it sorted out Tony. Yes, when I have not used the playback feature for awhile I nearly always forget to set the PTT override for VAC. It provokes one of those hmmmmm.... moments but I suppose it's good for the brain!

Hi Tony, From your screenshot, it looks like you may be playing back an audio wav file while in receive mode. The PowerSDR mRx PS audio wav playback and quick play functions are only intended to play audio files while in transmit mode. My screen looks similar to yours if I play an audio file through...

Re: New Quick Setup Guide for the CFC Audio Tools - 8-18-2017

Hi Tony, If it sounds fine when playing it back on the PC then it most likely is the TX Gain setting in the "Wav File Controls" form. I can't recall what the default setting is but I do recall that I had to reduce the gain significantly to get the audio level close to the level of my audio...

Re: Buffert settings just for fun...

Primary Buffer Size is 512 and sampling rate is at 192KHz. My VAC buffer size is at 512 with a 48KHz sampling rate to match my UMC202HD interface sampling rate of 48KHz.

Smooth sailing with a Buffer Latency setting of 0ms with the new Resampler!

Re: 10 or 10E

Hi Chuck, I believe you can identify whether it is a 10 or a 10E by looking at the firmware version in the Hardware Config menu tab of OpenHPSDR. The ANAN-10 firmware will be in the 3.x series which is also used by the ANAN-100 rigs. The ANAN-10E firmware will be in the 1.x series which is also used...

Very nicely illustrated Scott, and it should be helpful to anyone running audio into the ANAN's 1/8 inch TRS MIC jack. When running a balanced microphone (typically found with studio dynamics) into an unbalanced input (like what is found with the 1/8 inch TRS jack of the ANAN rigs) I have always use...

Just hold the probe antenna near every wire that comes into your station and you'll quickly identify any that a...
