Re: Angelia (ANAN-100D) Protocol 2 test pilots: please check in

Guys, Please try this out and report back, if you would. Working OK here on my Angelia: no Seq errors, solid PS, solid RX2, solid diversity. The major difference with this one is that it should hold its timing over a wider temperature range. https://www.dropbox.com/s/9upj7vx5ji3os49/Angelia_Protocol...

Re: 7000 and 8000 Protocol 2 users: what say you?

Hi Guys, This build has some thermal parameter changes in the Quartus (FW Compiler) timing area suggested by our resident Systems Guru Scott/WU2O. The idea is to tell Quartus to compile for a wider thermal range and hopefully work better on more or most 7000/8000's https://www.dropbox.com/s/ndahfr5z...

Re: Angelia (ANAN-100D) Protocol 2 test pilots: please check in

Tnx for the detailed results of your tests guys. It feels like we're converging on something that works within a variety of hardware. I'm not sure why it seems harder to bring the Angelia in to a general consensus of working well with P2 like the Orions. There's always variables such as the fact it'...

I believe I found the issue causing the antenna switching not to work. Also I made some timing adjustments. If you can please try both of these and let me know which works better.

Re: 1.8 causes Thetis to close during a PTT

I can't repeat this behavior with my 7000 (non MKII).

Any chance someone who is seeing this frequently can get a wireshark capture
on the UDP data going between the SDR and HOST (all ports)?

Jeff reports that 1.6_pre1: https://www.dropbox.com/s/3wjluftuaomg3um/Orion_MkII_Protocol_2_v1.6_pre1.rbf?dl=0
works better than whats on the repo.

Tnx for taking the time to do that. Its very helpful.

I think I might know why the _pre2 image isn't working for you guys if you guys are running your 200D
