Re: Anan for Dumbest

Joe, In a marine environment I'd suggest using a laptop computer. Perhaps even a rugged laptop of some sort. Any laptop that has a mid-range i5 processor in it or faster (or equivalent AMD CPU) will do fine. I'd buy the largest laptop you think you can fit on the chart table ;) because having more s...

Re: Ptt in needs activating on 7000?

Gary hit the nail on the head. PTT needs "activating" on ALL openHPSDR architecture radios, meaning all ANAN series radios from the 10 to the 7000. The rear panel PTT connections and the front panel microphone TRS connector are connected in parallel where PTT IN is concerned. Any rear pane...

And VAC2 is dedicated to RX2/ADC2 if I understood that correctly." Not exactly correct, Gary. VAC2 is dedicated to RX2. However, RX2 is not dedicated to ADC2. Go to Setup > General > ADC and select the DDCs so that the one associated with RX2 is pointed at ADC1. I'm sorry, I can never remember...

Re: A/D Temperature And RMDR Performance

Not so far as I know, Joe. The datasheet for the 16-bit ADC used in most of the radios is here: http://www.analog.com/media/en/technical-documentation/data-sheets/2208fc.pdf On page 3 it shows that SFDR at 30MHz is guaranteed over the full temperature range, although there is a fairly big difference...

Re: "Sticking" Relay on ADC 1 and 2 Receive

Conrad, I wish you the best of luck in your endeavors. I hope you send your radio for repair so that you can either put it to work or sell it with a clear conscience. Or perhaps sell it as is at a deep discount.

Re: "Sticking" Relay on ADC 1 and 2 Receive

Conrad, Why use EXT1 or EXT2? Why not just use ANT1 and ANT2? TX on one and RX on the other. Or do you need full duplex operation? If you don't need full duplex, then if you look at the schematic for the PA/RF board for your radio (you can find it in the schematics section of this forum), you'll see...

If you are writing code already, Mike, just send the CAT commands to adjust the TX passband as required.

Re: Filter WIdth

Per the design of the digital filter implementation, the passband frequencies you specify represent the -6dB point on the filter response curve. While even the smallest (really shortest, but I'll stick with the nomenclature found in Setup > DSP > Options) filter size is, relatively speaking, a brick...

If you do, then uncheck them. They are problems waiting to happen ;)

So if I understand properly the MANUAL selection still keeps the BPF filters inline as needed for each band/segment ... also this was only in TX. If you don't have bypass selected, and if you have not manually selected a filter configuration, then yes, this is correct. This is true for RX and/or TX...

Re: PureSignal performance on 6M

Allow me to pile on by saying automatic firmware control of anything is a bad idea in an SDR. Everything should be software controlled.
