Re: ANAN 8000DLE Fan failure & Low sensitivity

If those temperatures are in Celsius the radio is probably getting too hot and one of the internal PTC devices (temperature sensitive, self-resetting fuses) is opening.

Either the fan is broken, the fan wiring or connector, or the fan driver IC.

Re: Angelia F3 PTC ("fuse") replacement/upgrade for Protocol 2

In another topic, Hauke, VK1HW reports:
Fuse: MF-USML400-2 (Element14 277-6833) fits like a glove
So that means either the Bourns or Lttlefuse 1210 size 4A devices should work well.

Did you get around to change the F3 fuse in your Angelia?

Did it resolve the apparent lockup problem?

Have there been adverse effects?

I don't have a photo, but if you orient the Angelia card so that the ATX power connector is at the bottom left, then you will find F3 just above the right end of the power connector and to the left of the group of jumpers. It should be clearly marked on the silk screen. By the way, this ...
