Re: Thetis 2.8.11 Rx Level Calibration

I think I get the operation now. Thanks for your help.

BTW, the lower right hand amplitude readout seems to show the right value if the largest signal in the band is right on the center (VFO) frequency, and it is within the set rx filter by itself. Otherwise, the value is pretty far off.

Re: Thetis 2.8.11 Rx Level Calibration

It makes sense that the pan adaptor level readings should be affected by the the bin width being used in the FFT and matches what I see when rechecking while adjusting the bin width. I have not had much experience with spectrum analysis so did not catch the bin width to signal width measurement rela...

Thetis 2.8.11 Rx Level Calibration

Been running Thetis on my ANAN 100B for quite a while now. Finally, decided to try calibrating my (panadapter and digital readout display). Found some interesting things that I would like to see comments on. I am running 2.8.11 on latest Win10 (64 bit). My calibration input signal is from a 10MHz GP...

Re: 2.7.0 Feature Request - Tune Timeout

I just found I had left my radio on tune for a good 30min - lucky I have tune set for pretty low power. Hope I never do that again, but I am thinking a Tune timeout would be nice.

Re: VAC Problem

VAC 4.62 would not work for me after my PC updated to the Win10-64 2004 release. Going back to 4.60 works with 2004. VAC 4.62 did work before the 2004 update and also works with Windows Media Player, VLC, WSJTx and FLdigi on 2004. Problem would seem to be with OpenHPSDR. FWIW, a single VAC channel w...

Re: VAC 4.62

Re: Thetis v2.6.9 Install Problem

Sorry, missed the vac section. Tried Voicemeter and it appears to work - just one tx test so far. Funny though that both FLdigi and WSJTx can still use Virtual Audio Cable channels (I can send and receive between the two programs) but Thetis does not. I have been using VAC with it HPSDRmr/Thetis for...

Re: 2.7.0

a3 build running fine so far (kind of early yet) on my ANAN 100B. Did not find it in the change log. but I can use my Rx only antenna on port 1 (marked Rx only in setup) while Tx'ing on port 2 or 3. This annoying (possibly dangerous) bug was in the last few versions, including 2.6.9. If you had a Tx...

Re: Hermes Protocol 2 Gigabit firmware for ANAN-10E & 100B

Been using P2 fw 10.3 on my ANAN-100B for at least a year now and can not remember having any crashes. I do mostly digital (WSJT usually) and have only two problems: 1) On 6m, the preamp fails to be switched in after tx, about every four tx>rx cycle. The preamp will switch back on after one or a few...

ANF Setting Not Saved

For the last few versions (don't remember when I first noticed it) and in my current version (v2.6.9b6), the ANF function is not saved between launches. The ANF function also does not seem to be accessible from any of the v2.6.9 "collapsed" view controls - ANF is pretty handy for digital m...

Re: P2 version 10.3 released for 14-bit Hermes (10E and 100B)

Been using the new V3 FW with Thetis 2.6.7 on my 100B. Everthing seems to work, except the 6m preamp is not always turned back on after tx (happens about 25% of tx's). Clicking the Thetis tune button on/off a time or two returns the preamp, cycling the disable preamp on rx button in filter settings ...

Re: Thetis 2.6.7 released

Just installed Thetis 2.6.7 with the ANAN 14bit 10.3 FW (on my ANAN-100B) and it appears to be working fine, at least some FT8 QSO's achieved. Unlike Thetis v2.6.6, it does not run with the 10.2 FW and puts up a message saying 10.3 is needed. The boot loader installed 10.3 with no problem. For some ...

Re: Anan 10 and protocol 2 - No Rx ?

FWIIW, I am now running Thetis 2.6.4 on Win10 to operate an ANAN-100B running the 14bit P2 v10.2 FW. It seems to work fine on HF through 6m, at least on FT8 and SSB phone. I have had 2 program crashes of maybe 100 transmissions on 6m though, so maybe not perfect. Hermes P2 v10.7 loads without any bo...

Re: GPSDO Tutorial?

I did messed up on the output. It is ~1.5Vrms unloaded and ~1.2Vrms/15dbmW into 50 Ohms.

Re: Frequency Resolution/Accuracy for OpenHPSDR + 100B

Do you know if any of the other ANAN compatible programs (piHPSDR, SDR console, Thetis), or even the Hermes FW can provide/output accurate subHz resolution?

Re: Frequency Resolution/Accuracy for OpenHPSDR + 100B

Good to know. Do you know if OpenHPSDR repeats better than 1Hz resolution to CAT connections - say allowing the WSJT-X cal function to record correctly for fractional Hz drifts?

Frequency Resolution/Accuracy for OpenHPSDR + 100B

Does anyone know what the max resolution and actual accuracy of the 100B's VFO frequencies used within the 100B's FW, OpenHPSDR and reported via CAT are?

I am wondering whether a GPSDO external reference is worthwhile if it's not much better than the cal function and VFO readouts.
