2.7.0

Hi all,

I have spent a couple of hours getting back up to speed with what has been going on with Thetis, which has now moved on up to 2.7.0 as a pre-release active development version.

I will continue to post here my latest compiled exe as a zip including all relevant files that just need to be placed over the top of a working 2.6.9 install. As previously, from time to time my modified source will go back to Doug for a merge.

This version is based form Doug's latest (3/1/20) source, and he has let us know that it includes changes to Andromeda, a whole load of bug fixes (bandstack, thread sleeping and others), a general code tidy up and a change over to a drop down list to select the radio model (in setup).

Please note, this is entirely a work in progress build. Make sure you have updated to final release of 2.6.9 and that release is up and running before updating with the following.

v2.7.0 (3/1/20) UPDATE a3 : https://www.dropbox.com/s/8ik72kfeqycex ... 3.zip?dl=0

Download the zip, right click it, properties and select 'unblock' before you expand it out.
All files in the zip are required to be placed 'over the top' of the files from your 2.6.9 install.


Cheers, RIchie.

Richie,

This might not be recognized by non-engineering types, but every time you use the work "refactored" I get all giggly and happy. I applaud your efforts to continue to slash away at the spaghetti in there! Great stuff!

Cheers!

Scott

Richie,
Running a 200D .24 P2v1.9
I stalled 2.7.0 everything seems to be working , had to reselect the ADC's for second receiver.
F.Y.I. I noticed the PI (path illustrator) is messed up, only showing text but no paths.
Thanks for all of the hard work!

Refactoring is a disciplined technique for restructuring an existing body of code, altering its internal structure without changing its external behavior. Its heart is a series of small behavior preserving transformations.

1) dBm in Tx for RX1? I dont quite understand how that is happening, because the string 'dBm' only gets used if RX1 is not in TX state. Use the drop down to select meter for TX.

2)
a) make sure you have Setup->General->Options->Options1->Enable Shortcuts enabled
b) make sure you have Setup->Keyboard->SpaceBar Control set to PTT/MOX

Just a heads up, it was mentioned in the other 2.7.0 thread that there seemed to be some tx profile issues after the database upgrade. If your mode/whatnot is not being saved as expected, try re-saving the tx profile. I'll take a quick look at this area of code tomorrow to double check the db tx profile migration.

Richie...
2.7.0 a2 loaded and running great.
DPS/Options/ Filter size for SSB and General/ADC settings didn't carry over. Minor inconvenience.
Fyi... All previous lock-up issues appear to have been resolved with change from Cat 5 Ethernet cable to Cat 6a shielded cable.

All worked fine and stableā€¦..thanks for all your effort and welcome back!

Richie,
I noticed there is a problem with pure signal.
I am running a 200D with 2.7.0a2 P2 1.9.
The TX ATT. defaults to 31 when transmitting barefoot.
If I turn on PS and turn on the amp, the correcting flashes yellow and the feedback flashes red.
I see that the TX ATT. changes to 15 after you key up with PS on.
The PS used to work fine at TX ATT. was at 15.
Once and a while after several "tesssst and fooouur in the mic, the PS will both go green.
Something has changed.
Thanks,
Don

Brain fart moment, I had lowered my mic gain to get less positive peaks on my REA mod monitor so that made my leveler peaks at -4.
I readjusted the leveler and got the peaks back to 0 and now PS is working FB.
Sorry for crying wolf.

Hello Richie ,
Is it possible to repair the Mic slider (Main Gui) and Mic/Gain/Sources (Setup>General>Transmit ) so they operate in VAC1 .
I miss that feature which was operational in MRX.

tnx
