Re: Diversity Operations

My point was that I was trying to find out what it did - when one invoked SD, what does it do other than phase lock the receivers? Does it do anything to the AGC for example as that could account for the change. Note although the perception is I'm hearing an increase in S/N, albeit very small, it mi...

Re: Diversity Operations

as I had said I understand how it is suppose to work - and as such it most definitely could improve things if both antennas are used and say the polarization is changing and i have 2 antennas to take advantage of that - I can add to that contrary to your comment and suggestion it DOES work on HF - I...

Re: RX2 RF output?

CAUTION! Just as a caution - Scott had suggested a DC Block inline with a RX preamp - however note that isn't going to work and in some/most/all cases will not prevent the preamp from being damaged if it is going to get damaged by having the jack grounded. Adding a DC Block, a capacitor inline - is ...

Re: Diversity Operations

Stereo Diversity: I'd love to know what this is doing exactly ... I know the principal - phase locked so that you have signal phase coherence and thus "overlap" ... if using antennas that are different polarization, as an example, one can literally 'see' (hear) the signal as it curls in th...

Yes - thanks Scott... I tried that. That is what I'm doing actually. It seems that it isn't divorcing the iambic keyer (internal one) when using this - it isn't configuring itself as a straight key.

Re: Rx2 on Anan8000 DLE

I"m actually surprised how RX2 is wired on the 8000DLE. The RX2 antenna jack is grounded where as the input to the filter bank is left floating! Ideally it should be the RX2 input on the BPF board (feeding FL2) that gets grounded on TX! This would prevent anything from getting in to RX2, just b...
