Re: New Protocol 2 Firmware Released

On further testing on lower sample rates the same problem of crashing happens on my Anan 100 so perhaps this is in fact a firmware issue rather than P3 . Maybe the timing is failing when rig gets hot.

Re: New Protocol 2 Firmware Released

Hi Mike, I've seen that too on rare occasions. If you unclick manual under buffer latency and Enable/disable VAC this usually clears it for me rather than going through a power cycle.

Re: Best AGC for digital modes?

Yeah quite possibly although David above did mention that it measures differently than WSJT X. With the set up I have now Ft8 seems to work really well , even got a new DXCC on 6m yesterday from Iraq :D

Re: Best AGC for digital modes?

Scott I'm double checking now with WSJT X and there does seem to be a difference in levels , WSJTX is showing roughly 15db less for the same set up. I'll post on the JTDX list and see if anyone else is seeing the same to rule out a local issue here.

Thanks again for the help Scott

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 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 ?
