Since people seem to get hang up on PC details here goes:.
HW: i7 with 16GB MEM SSDs TWO Gb NIC's (little b for bits) one for ANAN one for Network.
Please note this PC is also having a few other SDRs attached to it, either via USB or USB to Ethernet Converters.
Radio HW Version: Only God knows.
ANAN NIC Config: That's a long story, but basically everything OFF
except stuff you need for the TCP, which includes your IP address.
OS: Win 10 LTSB
ANAN Control Software: Thetis v2.6.7
ANAN Control Software setup: Again long story but main config below.
Enable Static IP Address
RX1 Sample Rate: 384000
RX2 Sample Rate: 384000
No Dither No Random (yet)
Process Priority: Normal
Input: VM-P ASIO
Output: VM-P ASIO (Voicemeeter Potato)
Sample Rate: 48000
To VAC Force: Enabled
From VAC Force: Enabled
Buffer Latency In: 45 Manual
Buffer Latency Out: 45 Manual
Port Audio In: 45 Manual
PortAudio Out: 45 Manual
DSP (only SSB)
RX: Linear Phase (sounds more natural)
TX: Linear Phase
So my tests of the latest P2 Firmware are as followed:Seq # Firmware Test 1 (Diversity default) Test 2 TX TUN Test 3 TX TUN PS-A Test 4 TX TWO Tone PS RX Artefacts (strong signal) Notes
1 Angelia_P2_v12.1_pr1_5070 disabled 5x seq8, 1x seq2, 3x seq8 Seq2 & 8 erros. PS hunting for correction. Digital artefacts when having NB2, SNB, ANF less pronounced with NB2 off but still there. Starting at S7. Could not detect any at SNB. Disabling SNB, no artefacts noted with NB2 and ANF (+10) not useable.
2 Angelia_P2_v12.1_pr1_5171 not checked see audio blips, but no seq errors see audio blips and quite a few seq8 errors PS hunting unable to correct not tested
3 Angelia_P2_v12.1_pr1_5670 disabled seq8 errors Seq 2,8,&10 errors PS correcting but lots of seq errors not tested
4 Angelia_P2_v12.1_pr1_5770 not checked ok occasional seq error ok with occasional seq error Digital artefacts when having NB2, SNB, ANF less pronounced with NB2 off but still there. Starting at S7. Could not detect any at SNB. Disabling SNB, no artefacts noted with NB2 and ANF (+10) Audio gain stages all over the floor on initial (cold) boot. No RX audio artefacts initially. Radio didn’t boot initial, no network, reboot radio fixed. Audio gain settled after 5-10min of operation. Seq2, Seq8 errors. NEED re-testing
5 Angelia_P2_v12.1_pr2_5550 disabled no seq errors, no PS, Diversity disabled by default.
6 Angelia_P2_v12.1_pr2 no seq errors but PS not working not tested
7 Angelia_P2_v11.9 seq8, seq41 errors, audio stops. Seq32, 49,1 no further tests done as deemed unusable.
8 Angelia_P2_v11.6 disabled ok ok ok Digital artefacts when having NB2, SNB, ANF less pronounced with NB2 off but still there. Starting at S7. Could not detect any at SNB. Disabling SNB, no artefacts noted with NB2 and ANF (S9+10) current Firmware that is working FOR ME
9 Angelia_P2_v11.8 bricked radio
10 Angelia_P2_v12.0 no RX no further tests
I used the HPSDR Bootloader to update/downgrade the Firmware on the ANAN.
Crap copy and paste looks, well average. I'll attach a spreadsheet if I can. Couldn't find a way to attach. Here is a link to it: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing
works for me quite nicely, i.e. Basic functionality as in having an OPERATIONAL radio (with a few bang and whistles) is working for me.
Now setting up Networking in a Windows environment is a quite a different story and as M$ likes to PLEASE Earthlings and Marslings alike, it is catering for the masses. Which, in MY HUMBLE OPINION, is not the best solution for what we like to do with our SDR's!
There are lots of GOOD hints and tips floating about on what to do with your NIC (Network Interface Card), some are being shot at others are being hyped up. Unfortunately you have to experiment with YOUR configuration, pick ONE at a time and see if it make thinks worth.
I've been running P1 over a Wireless (G) Network without any issues for a long time on plain i5 Lapdog, but getting there took some testing and teasing https://sites.google.com/view/vk1hw/rad ... 100d/win10
Hope this is of interest and helps one or two like minded Amateur Radio Operators.
PS: A very big Thank You
to the Gentlepeople that work on PSDR, the wife of Peleus and Mother of Achilles, and of course the Firmware developers.
