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 ?

Re: Best AGC for digital modes?

Thanks again Scott, carried out the tests as you suggested and on the SSB signal VMB is well into the red so there does seem to be a an issue between Thetis and VMB . On a side issue may I ask a favour can you tell me what the default value is for 6m LNA in your copy of Thetis please, I copied this ...

Re: Best AGC for digital modes?

Hi Scott , the Rx1 6m LNA value is adjustable on the Calibration tab. I agree something is badly wrong with these levels. I am using voicemeeter Banana set to Zero level on all sliders except the mic is which is muted. 20m looks the same visually but the meter shows about 20dbm less Wsjt X acts in t...

Re: Best AGC for digital modes?

Scott thanks so much for the very informative reply its most helpful . I think its pretty obvious I was way wide of the mark with my set up. In order to get near 30 on the audio slider on JTDX software I've backed off the VAC1 rx gain to -30 and the RX1 AF ( which I had totally overlooked) to 15. I ...

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 ?

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

Hi Dick, perhaps try clicking on MUTE on the external mic slider in voicemeeter banana ,perhaps there is a feedback loop that with latency sounds like reverb. Having said that that the input is not selected anyway but worth a shot. I notice also 0.01 - bass on voicemeeter banana , reset that to 0 ju...

Re: JTDX level and ALC

Thanks Scott, I tried with the default TX profile and got a different level again so perhaps a database re set may be in order .
Edit: I've just noticed the leveller was on in default profile so turning that off gives me exactly the same level on default profile compared to my usual FT8 TX profile.

Re: JTDX level and ALC

Thanks again Scott, I've just replicated the same behavior using WSJT X FT 8 so it does not seem this is specific to JTDX . I wonder is something different in Thetis compared to Power SDR in the audio chain ? Anyway I am still able to run a minus ALC value and no ALC comp showing so I guess that's w...

Re: JTDX level and ALC

Thanks Scott, my main curiosity though relates to the output level of JTDX and ALC reading , if its a negative value on JTDX should these two values not be closely matched ?

Re: JTDX level and ALC

Sorry Mike misread your earlier question . No not seeing anything above 0db even with everything maxed out. Just want to make sure everything is as clean as it can possibly be . Like you I run the Anan at low power, 2W to drive my Acom 600s to around 95w on 6m

Re: JTDX level and ALC

Hi Mike, I can adjust to -1 db or less without any problem using the power slider and the display looks clean . Just wonder why there is a discrepancy between JTDX at -4.2 when Thetis is at -1 ALC with TX gain of zero . Unless I'm mistaken the two levels using power sdr and jtdx were pretty much the...

Hi guys, is anyone here using JTDX 2.0.1.135 ? Perhaps you could check something for me . On the pwr slider on the right hand side in order to get an ALC level of -1.0 in Thetis i have to set the Pwr level slider to -4.2 . Given that I have voicemeeter and TX gain set to zero should the ALC level no...

Re: Audio glitches: why do they occur?

Scott have you tried firefox as a test to see if it exhibits the same behavior? I use firefox here and everything seems very stable . I have the Anan on the motherboard ethernet port and a Wi FI adapter for internet, perhaps that is the difference maker.
