Identifying which PA/RF board revision you have on 100 and 200 series radios

The only way to determine your board version is to either open the radio and look (although I'm not certain the boards are revision marked) or to determine it based on it's behavior. If you use Bypass for external PureSignal feedback it is a Rev. 24 board. If you use Ext 1 for external PureSignal fe...

Re: External feedback level calculations

Yeah, that's very strange, Chris. If you are at 1500W, with a 44dB coupling factor and a 9dB attenuator, I would expect to see an S-ATT of 26dB, not 9. A difference of 17dB doesn't seem to correlate with any obvious scaling problems, unless it's a factor of three! I'm running 3.3.15 with Angelia 5.8...

External feedback level calculations

UPDATED 25 MAY 2018 There are three things to consider when configuring an external coupler and/or external attenuators to obtain a proper feedback level at the rear panel connector of the radio: 1. When using Puresignal, the Auto-Attenuate function drives the step attenuator to the setting necessa...
