Re: HPSDR shuts down after 8000DLE relay click noise.

I'm puzzled as well.
Any suggestions? Maybe a fresh Thetis database? Maybe load v2.6.7?
It's been working so well for so long I hate to go back to P1.

Thx

Re: HPSDR shuts down after 8000DLE relay click noise.

Scott.... I continued to test the system with P2 and Thetis this morning and had repeated instances of Thetis being disconnected after hearing the clicking in the 8000DLE. This afternoon I reloaded P1 v2.3 and PowerSDR mRX PS v3.6.9 and have had NO disconnections or clicking from inside 8000DLE. I'm...

HPSDR shuts down after 8000DLE relay click noise.

I have been running an 8000DLE with P2 v1.9 and Thetis v2.6.6 for several months with no significant issues until today. As of this morning, intermittently, the 8000DLE will emit what sounds like a relay click when selecting a new band. At that point HPSDR turns off, Power button light turns off. So...

Re: 7000 and 8000 Protocol 2 users: what say you?

Have been running P2 v1.9 and Thetis v2.6.6 on my 8000DLE for about five days now with generally very good results. I have seen a few, very brief SEQ 43, 42, 11 and 8 error message but they do not appear to cause any noticeable issues. The last two days I have had two occurrences of where upon key d...

Adding a dedicated PCIe Ethernet card for 8000DLE

I'm considering adding a PCIe Gigabit Ethernet card dedicated to the 8000DLE instead of running it to the router as it is now. Anyone have any advice or thoughts on doing this before I start would be appreciated. Although I've built my share of computers I don't consider myself a network guy so any ...

For all the noise I've read about HPET I can live with the blowouts since it doesn't appear to be anything more than a visual annoyance.

With the amp off I still get the blowout, just not as pronounced.

There is no SWR issue noted with the display blowout.

Unkey Blowouts

I wanted to send this snapshot to show you what happens when I unkey mic. There is a momentary blowout which is disconcerting. The amp shows no corresponding power output but I do see -185 dBm on the PowerSDR meter as opposed to a resting -85 dBm. Any ideas what would cause this and how to get rid o...

The M.2 cards utilize the PCI Express bus rather than the eSATA bus which bottle necks the speed of SSD. M.2 SSD drives are up to five times faster than eSATA SSD drives for not much m...

Re: Pure Signal / wiring/ ANAN 8000DLE

Gary... I wasn't talking about case screws. It was the nuts inside and outside the case that hold the PS Feedback and Input connections in place. I too was skeptical that only that could improve my problem. In my mind it was a mechanical fix. Those nuts are not there to be loose, but it's the only c...

The external coupler was on the output of the amp with the 10dB attenuator inline on PS test 6.

PS test 7 on 17m, 1350w with internal coupler.
PS test 8 on 20m, 1430w with internal coupler.

Re: Pure Signal / wiring/ ANAN 8000DLE

Last check I was right at 0dB on the ALC but I'll recheck it. I'll order a 50 ohm terminator for the feedback SMA. The amp is an OM Power OM2500HF. I don't like seeing the blowouts and it usually is when feedback goes dark. I will bring ALC up to +1dB to be sure I'm hitting it hard enough. Can't bel...
