200D CHANGES POWER OUTPUT x 2-CALIBRATION INTERMITTANT

Greetings: Have had this issue off and on since last year. Same issue all bands. Testing with dummy load when calibration maximum power out to 100w on all bands. Months ago I replaced the original fuse holder with a beefier one using a larger blade fuse type. I have kept screen shots of my PA Cal. s...

Re: RX Level Calibration

Make sure each band is in same mode and bandwidth or levels will vary . Ideally test in cw mode narrow bandwidth like 500hz or narrower as suggested . There are some power supply birdies in different Anan models causing noise at various points in some bands. Most noticed in dummy load. Are you using...

Re: FM mode low audio out

Make sure your deviation is 5 khz. 2.5/5khz button on main screen lower right to right of microphone level slider. 2.5 will sound too low.

Thanks Bryan. I installed the patch on my Win 10 desktop using the 8000. All well with VAC2 and resampler now on restart. Will test my Win 7 laptop next . Is 3.49 Patch applicable to 200D or any other models using this version ?

Re: Unstable, wide, nasty spur

Your attenuator is set 0 DB? Try 20 DB attenuation. There are known power supply artifacts in the 8000 although mine may not look like yours. at 20 db it may disappear into the noise.
