Orion 5.2 firmware released (current protocol/Protocol 1)

Postby w-u-2-o » Fri Dec 01, 2017 4:56 pm

It would appear that the release of 5.1 may have been premature. From Joe:

All,

Orion_v5.2 firmware is available for download on the GitHub repository:

https://github.com/TAPR/OpenHPSDR-Firmware/tree/master/Protocol%201/Orion%20(ANAN-200D)

This firmware version simplifies Rx5 frequency switching to improvePureSignal mode performance with respect to board-to-board timing differences that may exist between different ANAN-200D radios.

I thank Joe K2GX and John W1QS for kindly helping me test the firmware.

Hi,

I moved from version 5.0 to 5.2 with my ANAN-200D (REV 24) and found that Pure Signal would no longer function. Same report and symptoms as Erwin mentioned with version 5.1 (the rig behaves as if the RF feedback path is not connected to the rear panel bypass port). I reverted back to firmware version 5.0 and Pure Signal is functioning normally again.

73,

From Joe:

All,

Apparently, neither Orion_v5.1 nor Orion_v5.2 work on everyone’s ANAN-200D universally. For now, my recommendation for those specific cases is to revert to Orion_v5.0 firmware.

Thanks very much for the tests and feedback. I will continue to examine the situation to see what might be done as a remedy this frustrating issue.

Hallo,

I have tested 5.2: same as 5.1 Pure Signal is not working (with intern Sampler). It looks like there is no Feedback, PS is on, but no green Lamps, its all Black.
Get back to 5.0 all is ok.

Another Question: The Button VFO-Lock locks only VFO A not VFO B. Is that a problem with Firmware or is it OpenhpSDR here V 3.4.6 ???

The VFO lock problem is a software thing, i.e. PowerSDR. It has nothing to do with the firmware.
