Re: Introducing the ANAN-7000DLE MKII

Thanks, Scott this AN is well known. I was just looking for testet values for Rbase, C and perhaps a proposal for the transistor... If Apache Labs modifies the circuitry, there should be updates schematics available, at least for the owners of the "new" version 7000 DLE. I don't want to cr...

Re: Introducing the ANAN-7000DLE MKII

Inferring from the information already released it would seem to be the same PA board but with a better heatsink. I do have it on good authority that the fan circuit has been remade in accordance with the fan controller IC manufacturer's app. note, so no more square waves out of the controller. Sco...

Re: Introducing the ANAN-7000DLE MKII

Two simple questions:

1) Is the MK II PA board the same as the one used in the 7000 DLE?
2) Is the fan control system the same ("rattlesnake")?

there seems to be the same Molex connector for an external fan.......

Re: Anan 7000dle Sma tvtr socket tx and rx?

Steve,

the SMA Port provides TX output.
Taking a look at the schematics of the PA board you will see that there is no connection/path to the RX switching part.

Re: IMPORTANT UPDATE/DO NOT USE: 7000DLE fan noise fix

Installed the new snubber circuit today. I agree with Phil. It works just like the one described previously.

The Indian Rattlesnake is not tamed but somehow appeased...... :D

Hopefully I have a little more time in the near future to try the internal fan on fixed speed.

Re: IMPORTANT UPDATE/DO NOT USE: 7000DLE fan noise fix

Yes, Scott.

No rattle but the fan is loud at full speed. Abt. 7-8 Volts should be ok while using an external controlled fan. I will check this next time.

Volker, Not sure if Scott is going to want to move this but - use DIG2 as an external keyer? Why would you put the radio in DIG mode to use it in CW? What am I missing? I DO have a microHAM Keyer II and I was not able to get N1MM+ to work driving the radio on CW ... not sure if this applies or not....

Hello Scott,

just tried this mod "on the fly" (did not manage to get the right pins for the fan plug - they will arrive in within a few days). Reduces the "rattling" noise A LOT. Will report next year.

Thanks again

Unfortunately, I was not able to find something.... Does somebody have any information regarding this topic?

Yes Loren, the impact of the case temperature is noticeable, (almost) regardless of the power level. When you key down the transmitter, the output level rises slightly (abt 0,5 watts at 100W) and then slowly starts to decrease. Same at moderate levels (30 Watts) in almost the same percentage.

Re: ANAN-7000DLE Update

I will be glad to use DIG In straight key connected to my MicroHam keyer.
That's a very good idea.
Additional Stereo 3,5mm socket for Line OUT L/R or Line Out Left (Main RX) wirde to useless Line IN Right would be great.....

Re: ANAN-7000DLE Update

Hi Abhi,

thanks for the reply.

I am currently running an ANAN-100 in a SO2R environment with a K3 controlled by a Microham MK2R+.

The 7000DLE will replace my 100.
I am using VAC for CW skimmer
That's why I would like to keep on using analog outputs. Main RX would be ok.

Useless "Line In Right" should be Line Out (main RX). This will be the one I will use. Hopefully the breakout board is more like the TAPR board for the ANAN-10.
