Re: Anyone ever run Pure Signal with a non-linear amplifier? Say a class C?

Wow does that mean that PS will make a class C amplifier feel like a true linear class A or AB ? Class C amps boosting FM or pure carrier signals would not need PS. Did you check the behaviour on a separate SDR receiver or spectrum analyzer ? This could simplify and cheapen PA in the future. It's ha...

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: 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.
