Re: ANAN 100B BURNT TOROID L9 ON PA FILTER BOARD

Hi, is an Amidon T50-6 with 9 turns 0,6 or 0,8mm Cul. Sweep all filters please, especially the filters from 30m are critical. Then check if the correct filter was switched, there were firmware versions that did not select the correct filter, you can see the result. The next thing is, the LPF is not ...

Re: ORION MK2 IMD3/5

Happy Easter! Are there any news about this IMD thingy? Hello, yes, I got my test boards, still waiting for some components, then I try to reproduce this behavior first. If this succeeds reproducibly, I have made small adapter boards with which I can insert other transformers and attenuators. These...

Re: Andromeda???

My Andromeda also gives first signs of life. What do you use as coax knob and which buttons? I found if I turn the VFO too fast the frequency just jumps back and forth, the signals from the encoder look ok, I think the 600imp/u is too much, I ordered a 100 impulse type. The rest is still in developm...

Re: ORION MK2 IMD3/5

Kjell, you are of course right, it is 18db gain, I had already changed it today at noon. to your test, have you measured a test board with the Gali51+? so in pushpull, I'm interested in the results of that. To the transverter, you could feed back the IF signal by PAD, on mine the transverter output ...

Re: ORION MK2 IMD3/5

the GALI51+ have 18-20db gain in the HF range, so the signal must be at most -10dbm to reach the 1db compression point. Assuming that the DAC brings 0-3dbm level, you need round a 10db ATT PAD between DAC and MMIC amplifier if you don't want to push the Step ATT to the limit. So you have about +8dbm...

Thank you very much for all the replies. the attenuator must be about 5-6db As long as PD is not in the HW, the goal for me is to have a clean RF chain, intentionally "mismatching" a stage is a very poor solution and has the charm of tinkering, the clean solution would be a fixed ATT at th...
