Re: Thetis QSK and the new default low-latency filters

The artifact isn't immediately noticeable on SSB, but over time, you begin to hear it as a resonance at the high end of the filter. If you can't hear it at 3kHz, go down to 2.5 or so and listen for it at the high end of your QSO partner's audio. As you pointed out, Bryan, it's also possible to hear ...

Re: Thetis QSK and the new default low-latency filters

Guys, I don't believe this is a ringing issue in the usual sense. It's more like a resonance in the Low Latency filter that happens in *all* filter widths and tracks the cutoff edge furthest from the carrier (i.e. the highest audio freq). I first thought it was a resonance in my headphones that I'd ...

Re: 7000DLE QSK Modifications

Nice work, Paul. W1JA and I have been researching relays looking for a really quiet replacement for the main TR relays in the various rigs. I've got an 8000 but the relay arrangement is the same as yours - two of them. Most reed relays don't have the contact rating for the main TR one. The Aromat yo...

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

Hi Rick, Just thought I'd chime in on this latest. I'd been running 1.5 with Thetis 2.6.2 for a while - since you released 1.5. It was quite stable and PS was working consistently - the main difference from 1.4 where it was randomly quitting. With 1.6 all seemed fine. But in an extended QSO on phone...

Re: Unstable, wide, nasty spur

The peak is around -107dBm with 0db attenuation. It's about 3kHz wide. Interestingly, the peak decreases to abo...

Re: 7000DLE perfect QSK?

I noticed this too and am quite interested in knowing whether the 7000 is QSK-ready? I don't have a schematic to compare with my 8000, which is decidedly not QSK-ready. Although it could be made so, which is why I'm interested.

Anyone?

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

I read it, Stu (I read nearly everything ;-). Your math makes sense. I think your point, put another way, is that PS corrects for net IMD through the entire transmit chain, exciter plus amplifier. This means the output of the exciter alone has not been corrected optimally. One wants to make sure tha...

Just to complete the story - yes, Thetis has continued to receive attention. Most (likely all) enhancements to PSDR/OpenHPSDR mRX PS that have been made recently have also been carried over into Thetis. Doug gets the credit for keeping this happening and in sync.

As far as I can tell looking at the code, that button was originally used to select the 2m band (judging by the variable naming convention). Somebody evidently had a new use in mind after implementing the VHF+ button. But as of now, the LF/MF button does nothing but light up when you press it.
