Anan 8000DLE and SDR Console will not transmit

Postby nico » Sat May 25, 2019 8:45 am

Hi

I have the latest firmware on the Anan 8000DLE however have not managed to TX successfully. I get no output on SSB and when I try FM/AM the rig draws nearly 50A and outputs around 300W and I have no control over the power output.

I suspect that it is user error on my part and that I have not set something up right in the software. Any pointers what I need to check would be greatly appreciated.

The Anan 8000 works great with Thetis so we can exclude a hardware / firmware issue

Thanks

I have managed to transmit in SSB mode now and it works great however the drive level can not be set when in TUNE mode still which results in the Anan blasting out 300W + into my test dummy load here

Hi Nico. It looks like you are making progress with transmitting SSB. There are two menu settings in the Transmit menu tab that affect the power setting when using Tune. You can define the power that you want Tune to use by adjusting the value in the Tune power box, or you can enable the option to use whatever the Drive power setting is adjusted to with the slider in the GUI. Hopefully, those settings will give you control over the power level you are seeing when using the Tune button.

He's using SDR Console. This is the SDR Console sub-forum ;)

Ouch, this is what happens when I sort by last active topic while drinking too much coffee! Sorry about that Nico and feel free to delete my post Scott!
