Re: Full output power with Anan 7000?

Andras,

Did you set the microphone gain? There is a 20 dB gain that can be enabled in the menu.

Re: Controller V2 and PC communication

Hi Enzo, I have had a brief look at the source code and it appears that remote access is at least considered. However, I have not found any documentation related to that, so it may be a future feature. Just to confirm that the piHPSDR Controller works well, I had Thetis running on my Anan-10 and the...

Re: Controller V2 and PC communication

Hi Enzo, I have both Thetis and piHPSDR and I do not find any difference in the way the audio sounds or the overall signal processing. With Protocol 2 you can actually get up to 1.5 Mbps sample rate, but the audio will then sound very choppy. Up to 760 kbps it is fine. In piHPSDR you have little con...

Re: Settings WSJT-X <> lin HPSDR ?

Hi Leif, I do not use LinHPSDR, but WSJT-X has a radio setting for "FlexRadio/Anan PowerSDR/Thetis, which works fine here for both my Anan-10 and the 7000 DLE. Now, that is the setting for audio and don't forget to configure the VAC devices as well. Good luck and 73 de va7qi, ....Erik.

Re: Controller V2

I hooked the Controller up to my Anan 7000 DLE MKII for a SSB QSO on 80 m. Here is what I noticed: - After selecting Protocol 2, it found the radio very quickly - It works well with one receiver. I used default sampling rate. - Interesting that the AGC/Gain cannot be set below -100. In my case, that...

Re: What client software are YOU using ??

Having tried a few of the other options, I can equivocally state that Thetis is the best client. It gives you full control over (almost) every RX and TX parameter and it is very stable. I have run it for weeks at a time both in digital and SSB modes and with no problems. One thing to keep in mind is...

Re: Thetis 2.8.11 Released!

Geoff,

Thetis 2.8.9 works very well on my Anan-10 - still with protocol 1. It is a nice upgrade from PowerSDR. I use it with WSJT-X on an old i5 machine.
Will update to 2.8.11 tomorrow.

You may well be right that it relates to tuning. I mainly run WSJT-X and change bands many times during the day. ...

Re: Need to restart Thetis to restore amp after fault?

Same hardware here; same fault. The radio gives very low output on tune. In my case I don't think it was a fault in the amplifier, but it happens occasionally and the cure is to turn power off Thetis as well as the 7000. Could be that RF gets into the computer. I often run QRO. 73 de va7qi, ....Erik.
