CW setup in Thetis 2.8.11?

Postby Dave30019 » Wed Oct 28, 2020 2:13 pm

Can someone provide some screen shots of a transmitted cw signal or video? I have my 7K DLE mkII setup for semi-CW, I just want to see what a clean signal should look like.

Also, some cw settings examples, how do you have your rig set? I followed the ver 1.1 manual and all seems to work.

Also shouldn't the APF RX1 button change colors when selected? When I click it, it moves a bit and I get a small APFm message in the VFO A window. I think a lighted button would be nice.

Thanks,
Dave

Hi Scott,

7K DLE MKII, firmware latest I could find 2.0b & 2.8.11 64 bit Thetis.

Dave,

You didn't mention if you were using one of my "skins" but if so, older versions will not display all the buttons as functionality was added to Thetis during its maturity and buttons were added. I know for a fact that the APF button was affected. The easiest way to fix this would be to go to my skins page at the link below and grab the skin pack that you want and unzip it into the appropriate skin folder. That will give you all the buttons for the new versions of Thetis. Of course you can also grab the entire skin pack if you want and that will accomplish the same thing.

Rob,
I'm using the K2GX 'World Time' skin. I installed this in late March about 2 weeks after I received the radio and installed Thetis. I don't recall installing any separate buttons or sliders.
I just noticed in your example on your page, the K2GX 'World Time' skin says 'PowerSDR' at the top, is this skin optimized for Thetis?

Dave,

Sorry for the delay in responding. Can't be on the interweb all the time, you know! ;)

Now that you have said that you are using P2 on the 7000 platform, I will refer you to the release notes for Thetis 2.6.4, which is where the great new QSK capability was first implemented:

Also, there is another topic here that added a little fine tuning type info to the above:

Hi Dave,

All the skins should be compatible with PowerSDR mRX PS and Thetis. That being said, now and then a button slips by and that is what happened with Joe's skins. I found the error and fixed it in the downloadable button pack at the link below. If you download it and then unzip it into the Console folder of the K2GX World Time skin (allow the zip file to overwrite the files in the Console folder) the button should then light up correctly when APF is enabled.

Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

[Edit: Note that all the K2GX skin packs have now been updated and should display the "APF Enabled" button correctly]
