Angelia (ANAN-100D) Protocol 2 test pilots: please check in

Postby w-u-2-o » Wed Apr 17, 2019 11:59 am

The P2 firmware for the 200D and newer radios seems to be shaping up in to a stable beta very nicely (thank you Rick N1GP!!!) Now we need to put a closer focus on the next oldest hardware, the Angelia card in the ANAN-100D.

Please let us know what firmware versions work, 11.7, 11.8 or 11.9, what versions don't work, or if none of them work for you.

This information will be critical to the development of a production version that does work for the Angelia.

Thanks & 73,

Scott

Hey Folks,

I've made a couple of Angelia (100D) FW images to try with various timing changes.

Please give them a try and let me know here which if either work best for you.
Best to load them with the Bootloader.

I have an early 100D (2014) only mod is the improved 10MHz TCXO.

Have been running Thetis with Ver 11.7 f/w for some months. Just installed Ver 11.9 f/w and Thetis Ver 2.6.4. All OK except:

1) Frequent short RX audio dropouts accompanied a a short (error?) message in the middle of the line below the display. The message are in the format "Seq =>nn" The nn number changes, the most recent one I have seen is 32.

2) The new QSK button on the CW sub menu is greyed out. So far no TX testting except for using the TUN buttom - which triggers a tune up carrier as expected.

Will be happy to answer any questions..

Intel 980x, 6 core ,12 threads, Nvida Cuda.
Anan 100D feeding a EB-104 300wt amp @ 50vts.
power output @ 160 watts.

Interesting !

Both work with PS.

What is interesting is that the IMD of ver 12/5270.rbf ....PS is much better on the 5th , 7th , 9th and up.

Ver 12/4070.rbf works also , but the IMD with PS on the 5th , 7th , 9th is not as good as ver 12/5270.

The IMD on the 3rd with both is abt the same.

Having said that , there are some harmonics within the passband with 5270 @ a 2T of 700/1900hz.

In any event , you have solved the PS problem in a timely manner.

Thank you very much for your effort's.

I have tried both versions, with none of them I was able to receive or transmit. Only noise as if no antenna is connected.
Went back to Angelia_Protocol_2_v11.7_7-15-18.rbf and all works fine again.
This time I could use the Programmer instead of the Bootloader.

Both Brian and Gary have been successful with

@ZL2XG: it would be really good to know if that same version runs on your Angelia.

BREAK

@dl2hbj, Jan, what programmer are you referring to? The P2 programmer?

Thanks,

Scott

Scott, I used the P2 programmer.
I checked the Angelia_Protocol_2_v12.0_pre1_5270 again, which again doesn't work.
Would it be helpful if I made my database available?

Hi Scott,

I tried e Angelia_Protocol_2_v12.0_pre1_5270 and it proved highly unstable.

The second ver 12 refused to load properly.

So, back to Ver 11.9 for the moment.

Jan,

If you haven't tried it already, I recommend reloading with the bootloader just to see if that makes a difference. The P2 programmer is not 100% reliable with the firmware we've got right now, i.e. when the firmware is struggling to make timing part of that struggle may affect P2 programmer.

Chris,

Thanks for the report!

73,

Scott
