Re: I'm trying to ID lines on waterfall

Hi Ruben, the first thing to do is to unplug any antenna from the radio. If the lines disappear its probably an interference of some sort coming "on the air" maybe a local one. If the lines remain the culprit might be some rubbish getting into the power line or any wire connected to your r...

Re: 2.6.9

Hi Rick,

to keep it short : the new FW disables PTT & TX keying when PA disable is checked in XVTR menu. There is no action
from this checkbox on the PA at all.

Will try this new version right know & report.

Re: PA disable not functionnal

Addendum

Under PowerSDR mrx & protocol 1 the PA disable function works on my system.
After reflash of FW1.8 and reinstall of Thetis from scratch (yes i watched the wisdom file creation)
there is no more PA disable function.

So this is a Thetis bug.

Re: 200D Protocol 2 users: what say you?

Hi Dave,

Overflows & underflows in VAC occur only at startup (enabling) of VAC; Later it runs flawlessly. Decoding, especially on FT8 mode is
perfect.
So check the counters in VAC monitor : you'll probably see no further incrementation after a few seconds from start.

I solved the problem by using DDUtil with a
