Re: ANAN-200D and VMB Not Working Together

To solve the PTT problem, in Setup > Audio > VAC1, turn off (uncheck) all of the "Allow ... to override/bypass VAC for phone" options. I'll need to add that to the tutorial, eh? ;) Future recommendation: since solutions don't seem to come to you naturally on their own, I'd recommend that i...

Re: ANAN-200D and WSJT-X/FT8 TX tone on waterfall display mushrooms

Yes, as Gary says, select DIGU for digi modes. Doing this will automatically disable all transmit audio signal processing in PowerSDR (EQ, compressors, etc.) This is very important as such signals must be transmitted in an unmodified fashion. And as Gary also says, turn on DUP. This will display the...

Potato adds a third virtual channel so that we will be able to mix VAC1 (RX1) and VAC2 (RX2) audio together. Or be able to mix and route to two different digi mode programs independently.

Re: Omnirig and HPSDR setup ???

When you get a "port is not available" error, that means that piece of software has not given up the port properly. You can restart the suspect software, or sometimes it is just simpler and better to reboot and start from scratch.

Re: Omnirig and HPSDR setup ???

Your VSPE setup is wrong. You need to use a "pair", not a "connector".

Set up a pair of ports. Assign one port of the pair to PowerSDR, the other to Omnirig.

Re: ANAN-200D and VMB Not Working Together

Dick,

Quit PowerSDR. Assign VMB output A1 to a valid hardware audio output. Make sure VMB is happy and not blinking red. Start PowerSDR. Activate VAC.

Also, if manual is not checked in PowerSDR VAC setup, then it's in auto mode ;)

73,

Re: ANAN-8000DLE - permanent ADC overload

Try reloading your firmware. Seriously.

If you get the same behavior after that then it sounds like your radio is actually broken and needs repair. Relays should click when turning the preselectors on and off. You should not be seeing giant clock spurs.

Re: Ethernet loss

Loading P2 or P1 firmware cannot damage the hardware. The implementation of a NIC on the radio hardware is exceptionally simple: the MAC is in the FPGA, the PHY is a single chip, and there is connector with integrated magnetics. That's it. That the P2 firmware available in the TAPR Git repository di...

Re: Remote power on/off ?

I have not seen either one of those behaviors specifically. However, the P2 firmware currently available from the TAPR Git repository is not stable on all radios, so that is most likely the problem.

I'm hoping the developers will release some more recent firmware soon.

Great screenshots, thanks. First, let me be sure I understand the problem: the resampler works and PowerSDR starts, as long as you start with the resampler OFF, and never quit the program with it ON. Is that correct? Second, a few minor observations (do these first): 1. Turn on the stereo option. 2....

Re: Unstable, wide, nasty spur

I live in a rural environment and listen to 160M on an antenna that is very quiet on 160M. I rarely use more than 10dB attenuation, and would easily see the spur that you are experiencing.

It's odd that some folks have this and some don't.

Does your VAC configuration work OK before you turn on the resampler?

If so, post a screenshot of your VAC setup screen before turning on the resampler.
