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: Eterlogic VSPE autorun

Tony, Just to be completely clear... You put a shortcut to the file you saved from VSPE into the startup folder - *not* a shortcut to VSPE itself, correct? If that's not what you did, then try doing that and see if it works. If that *is* what you did and it's still not working, right click on the fi...

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...

Re: CMD PL1 issue with ACG Level control

Thanks for reporting this, Gary. I've been using both a PL-1 and a Micro, but I have the AGC levels mapped to sliders on the Micro, so I haven't noticed this. I mapped one of the PL-1 wheels to RX1 AGC tonight and can re-create your problem. Strangely enough, if I have that AGC mapped to both a mini...

Re: Thetis ETA for release ?

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.

Re: NB/NB2 and Pan display on SSB-TX jumps around

One more observation...
I brought up SDRConsole on my RTL dongle and tuned to my 80m frequency using the dongle's whip antenna. I again saw no difference in the spectrum with NB/NB2 on or off, while transmitting as in the previous post.

Re: NB/NB2 and Pan display on SSB-TX jumps around

I tried this out this morning. When I turn on NB or NB2 I see extra background levels on both sides of the main signal in the panadapter, that pulsates with my voice. These appear as very broad "shoulders" on the main signal. The behavior is not there with NB/NB2 off. I presume this is wha...

Re: Which Visual Studio version should I use?

Matt, We haven’t yet embraced the full Github process.

In the case of the MIDI code, normally you could ...

Re: Which Visual Studio version should I use?

Matt, I've been able to test MIDI code with PSDR-OSDR mRX PS without hitting the Power button. It doesn't even look for a radio until you do that. Most of the controls still work, however, so you can test a MIDI controller's ability to control them without turning it on. Of course, ultimately you wa...

Some of us are using Visual Studio 2015 or 2017. It works just fine under Windows 10. Doug then takes updates to source and recompiles under 2013.

Re: 630m and 2200m support?

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.

Andrew, Thanks for noting this. It's not really a bug but certainly may be incorrect. The way the code is structured (I don't know how far back this goes), these segments and names are literally hard-coded into the software. I'll have a look at it and see if we can correct it according to what you p...

Thanks for the additional details and history. And the offer. I do have a complete set of schematics for the '89.

Re: Electronic bias systems vs. PureSignal

There seems to be several versions of the Alpha 89 out there. Mine is a 1994-vintage one (with the ETO logo) and has no dynamic bias manipulation. You have two states from which to choose: SSB and CW, as someone's described earlier, which insert one or two zener diodes. PS has no problems with this ...
