Re: Transmit profiles & PA settings

Hi Scott DDUtil last version is for use with Flex Radios and the last versions only work with the signature series (6xxx). To enjoy DDUtil with Flex legacy or Anan radios with Power SDR or Thetis you must install a version prior to version 3.2.5.xx. (DDUtil_V3) This drive control may be set by band ...

Re: ANAN-200D No connection

Hi Dima

Try to assign a correct IP address in bootloader. Sometimes an old IP adress is kept in the FPGA memory and that makes it impossible
for Thetis to find the radio while bootloader is still seeing it.

Hope this is the trick.

Re: Database import

Hi Keith I experienced the same trouble when importing databases : the Xverter table was missing. You should save your transmit profile in Setup/Transmit/Profiles when done with your transverter data input in the table. This worked on my setup (Anan 200D, Thetis 2.8.11, last FW 1.9. Win10).

Re: Ukrainian transverters- anyone tried with ANAN radio?

Sorry Dave,

the last version of firmware for your 200D is Metis_Orion_NP_v1.9_pre4.rbf which you may download from
Scott's link.

Please tell us it works for your setup.

Re: Ukrainian transverters- anyone tried with ANAN radio?

Hi Dave !
I had the same issue with my 200D. You must install protocol 2 firmware : Orion_NP_v1.9_pre3metis.rbf. Previous versions did NOT work properly. This last version implements PA disable function correctly. To be downloaded on Github.

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.
