Re: Anan 7000DLE MKII black size

OM,

I have an early one (ordered on the first day they were offered for sale) and a late one delivered in mid January. They have different handle sizes! You may want to consider waiting until you get yours before buying the custom cover.

Re: Protocol 2 transmit questions

I don't know how to send I/Q samples at the rate that the DUC consumes them, to avoid FIFO over- or under-flow. I see occasional brief damage in the transmitted signal, probably as a result of a FIFO error. I'm generating the samples from FT8 software, not from the ANAN-100D microphone, so there's ...

That's a potential feature which is in the very early testing phase. If interested, please email me at my QRZ listed address with the name of your ASIO sound device/driver.

Re: Your Setup/DSP/Options settings?

I know this is kind of subjective, but for me the minimum phase filters sound slightly harsh. But the linear phase filters sound like "butter" :-) The good news is that, for lower filter size settings (e.g. 2048), there is very little latency penalty for using linear phase. 73, Bryan W4WMT

I think that's just a bit of leakage current. With "Bias" turned off, a 1 meg resistor pulls it down to just a few mV.

Yeah, you're not wrong, most people don't even notice it though.
