Re: Current Status

Just to clarify:

The 100 is the 100W version of the 10. Both use the Hermes 16-bit card.

The 100B is the 100W version of the 10E. Both use the Hermes 14-bit card.

i wonder will there be an Apache version of the 3.2 Hermes firmware, too? You know, a b version that uses the correct LPF while in ALEX mode!

Bernhard , DL1OF

Is this really a firmware problem, Bernhard, or a PowerSDR problem?

Re: ANAN-8000DLE SWR Protection

John, In addition to confirming you've got the right LCD microprocessor code loaded, I'd suggest reverting to protocol 1 and PowerSDR. There's no guarantee that protocol 2 and Thetis will work properly regardless of the LCD firmware revision. Unfortunately I can't guide you on what the 8000 LCD shou...

Barry, Non-coherent diversity basically is any method that causes one to choose between two (or more) signal sources based on some metric of signal quality, usually which one is the strongest.

I wonder, because of the way that openHPSDR architecture radios (i.e. every Apache Labs radio) adjusts RF drive, setting the RF power to 100W and then adjusting drive with the audio level might not be a good method. This is because the gain afte...

Buck, No problems per se. However, you'll take a 3dB sensitivity hit using a power divider ("splitter"). You may or may not want to do that. A switch would solve that problem. Also, just be very careful to program it up right in Setup > General > Ant/Filters > Antenna. You don't want to ac...
