Re: Thetis - Release notes

Hi Scott, I had some time to kill this morning so I pushed Orion_1.1.rbf into my ANAN-200D and fired up Thetis v2.5.2 to give it a workout. The database migration utility worked flawlessly in my move from the 2.4.3 to the 2.5.2 version. As I mentioned before, I really do like the new bandstack utili...

Re: Thetis - Release notes

Hi Scott,

I clicked on the little "Bandstack" numbers at top center in the same panel as the "VFO Synch" and "Tune Step" settings.

Re: Thetis - Release notes

This is a very clever utility within Thetis to manage your bandstack frequencies. I like the adjustable TX filter settings in the Console as well. Very nice!

Re: Band buttons dissappear and appear again

Hi Doug, I went through all of them and the issue showed up with each skin in both 2.4.3 and 2.5.2. In the cases shown in the screenshots below I clicked on the "SWL" button and that made the band buttons disappear. If I cycled down to 1885 or any other frequency within a ham band the band...

Re: Band buttons dissappear and appear again

I can confirm that I saw this behavior in the 2.4.3 beta as well. I have not looked at 2.5.2 yet.

Re: Thetis - Release notes

Nice! Something new to check out when the next rainy day comes along. I have to say that with the Orion 1.1 firmware the 2.4.3 beta worked very well. I ran it yesterday morning through most of the afternoon and made several contacts on 75 meter AM. I noticed that a couple of the CFC components were ...

Re: Hermes Protocol 2 firmware v10.3 released

Hi Tony, Before I sold my ANAN-100 the temptation to see how it would behave with the gigabit firmware was too great to pass up. So, I installed it and my ANAN-100 ran THETIS fine at 192 and 384 for hours at a time. I jumped it up to 768 and it received fine for an hour or so. Then I jumped up to 15...

Re: Proper attenuation for Pure Sig from output of Amp

Hi Skip, 1. I'm not sure which ANAN you are using but I believe the return path for PS is through RX-1 on all of them. If your unit is a 100D, 200D, or 8000DLE then you can check for damage by tuning to a signal with RX-1 routed through ADC-1 and then tune to the same signal using the same antenna w...

Re: A bit of rx audio at start of transmission

Hi John, That's certainly an inconvenient feature! I wonder if some combination of the "delay" settings on the left side of the Options menu tab could possibly eliminate or at least minimize this? It kind of sounds like a buffer is holding onto some data and then dumping it when your trans...

Re: LatencyMon Benchmarks

Hi Tony, Unfortunately, the last gaming system that I built was in March of 2014 and it uses an ASUS Maximus VI board with the Intel Z87 chipset. At this time it looks like that Intel chipset has been left in the dust by the Intel Z97, Z99, Series 100, and Series 200 chipsets. As is usually the case...

Re: Some Thoughts On Asymmetry, Symmetry, and Using Pure Signal When Running AM With The ANAN

There is a suspicion out there that Pure Signal removes or limits the positive peaks when it is used with AM. Hopefully, the video below will put that rumor to rest. https://youtu.be/069_uUSz3X4 In the first scenario, the ANAN 200D is modulated with a 1000 cps tone right to the threshold where the A...

Some Thoughts On Asymmetry, Symmetry, and Using Pure Signal When Running AM With The ANAN

I often run into ANAN users running AM and at times see them set up to transmit with a considerable amount of asymmetry. Since SDR architecture first generates a DSB signal and then adds the carrier at the end, you are not actually modulating the carrier as you do with plate modulation or Class E ri...

Re: PowerSDR mRX PS v3.4.1 - Embedded CFC Preset TX Profiles

Hi Geoff,

Is it the XVTR Setup form where the data is lost each time you import a TX profile? I have to admit that I did not even know that form was there because I have never used a transverter with my ANAN.

Thanks and 73,

If you have used any of the CFC preset profiles (SSB 2.8k CFC, SSB 3.0k CFC, SSB 3.3k CFC, AM 10k CFC) that are embedded in the new v3.4.1 release, you may have noticed that they induce noticeably high latency when they are being used. This is because I inadvertently built them with a TX profile tha...

Re: DB25 Connector - Easy Solution For Good Connections

The yellow "Mini Gender Changer" label on the "Port Protector" is misleading as it's a simple M-F straight through connector that repeats the female DB-25 connector on the back of the ANAN.

DB25 Connector - Easy Solution For Good Connections

Unlike my ANAN-100, the DB-25 connector of my new ANAN-200D was set too deep behind the rear panel to allow a good connection with my Winford breakout board. In fact, the breakout board could not be seated deep enough to make any connection at all. Sometimes, removing the captive screws on the conne...

Thanks for sharing what you have found. I have to step away for most of tomorrow, but when I have a chance I will see if I can duplicate your absent database.xml phenomenon with auto-attenuate disabled and manual adjustment of the S-ATT level.

It never went beyond 2.20% (1Gbps) of network utilization while running a 192k sampling rate on RX-1. Of course being adventurous, I stepped through all the sampling rates right up to 1536k just...
