Re: Best AGC for digital modes?

Interesting. I don't have JTDX (and have no interest in installing it). Using WSJT-X, under the same conditions I get 39dB into WSJT-X, which 15dB different than you.

At this point I am at a loss to explain where that 15dB difference is coming from.

Re: Best AGC for digital modes?

Hi Scott., windows sound panel set to 100. On quiet part of band with AGC at max I need to increase slider to 2.6 to get the first red bar to show . I can then go to a strong signal and get the red to appear again with AGC just above the noise so perhaps I'm making progress ? If that is with RX1 AF...

Re: Diversity Operations

As the post you quoted already points out, the answer is no. Your radio only has a single ADC.

Re: Best AGC for digital modes?

Tony, Your settings look perfect. Did you check the level settings in the Windows Sound control panel? Please do this experiment: 1. Set RX1 AF to 100, VAC RX Gain to 0, leave all your VMB sliders at 0dB 2. Tune in a quiet part of the band using DIGU and a 3KHz filter. 3. Set the AGC Gain to maximum...

Remote (virtualized) CW

Remote/virtualized CW: running CW by connecting a key to your PC and listening to audio on your PC via VAC. It has long been believed that remote/virtualized CW is not possible due to high signal latencies in a virtualized environment. However, this is not strictly true any longer. Remote CW with P...

Re: Best AGC for digital modes?

Tony, The link will answer your question regarding how noise power is measured by the spectral display and the S-meter, but will not solve the audio problem. The calibration value is just that, a calibration value. It tells the software what the LNA gain IS, it does NOT let you CHANGE the LNA gain. ...

Re: Best AGC for digital modes?

I find that I have to keep the AGC gain line way high on the screen (gain value of 40 or so) in order to get 30db showing in Ft8 software on a quiet frequency. If I set it any higher in gain terms the audio level is too high. Am I missing something ? Tony, It is important to keep your AGC reference...

OK, that makes sense. You could also do it with hardware by using a DPDT switch for PTT and mic audio. One side of the switch to key the radio (either directly into the radio hardware or via a serial port on the PC), the other side to alternately connect or ground the mic input to your sound interfa...

Re: Single MIDI Controller Button Controlling MOX and Voicemeeter?

First the easy part: there is a MOX command called MOX On Off. It is a button-assignable command. It is a toggle, not a push-to-talk, control. Second part, splitting a MIDI controller across two applications: you can do this. It requires using "virtual MIDI software", much the same as usin...

Re: Best AGC for digital modes?

I've tried fast, and I've tried slow, and seen little difference either way. In a fit of indecision, I've settled on medium. :D

I suspect that it doesn't make a lot of difference unless you are riding the ragged edge of FT8 or something like that.

Art,

See this topic:

I'm guessing that the problem is blocked process threads when running Thetis.

Seq errors are not reported by PowerSDR (as far as I know) or SDR Console, so you won't see them there even if they exist.

It is possible that as the radio heats up the timing of the FPGA changes. Has it been warmer in your shack now that summer is upon us?

Jackie, It would be most unusual to see both the 100D and 200D act in exactly the same manner like you describe.

There is a path:

Re: Orion MK II alone swr protection

No, there are no protective features on the RF output hardware, either. The software has the ability to cut back RF output power, but only if provided with reliable and accurate forward and reverse power signals from a compatible external sensing circuit.
