Stockcorner JC4s interface

Postby DG9FDA » Tue Dec 17, 2019 2:22 pm

I have a new tuner for my horizontal delta-loop. I like to use it in automatic mode. I need advise how to generate the tune-contact with my 100D.
Is someone using the Stockcorner tuner out there?

Thanks in advance, Georg DG9FDA

Neither PowerSDR nor Thetis have any facility to control an external tuner.

I use a DDUtil macro button to control the tuning process. Via a variety of DDUtil supported hardware interfaces (I use the MODBUS PLC interface) you can control tuner lines and put PowerSDR or Thetis into TUN mode via the DDUtil CAT interface and macro language.

For example, I have a macro button called "Full Tune". It cycles power on my MFJ tuner to reset it, commands TUN, I wait until I see good VSWR, then I push the button again and it de-asserts TUN. That's just one example.
