Re: #ubitx-help Strong Audio Tones in and outside audio receive passband #ubitx-help
HFO's being off suggests the 25mhz crystal at the si5351 might be the problem on this one.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Regardless, it is probably a matter of 3'rd harmonic of the 16mhz nano oscillator
beating with the fourth harmonic 1.9985mhz bfo.
Tone should change when you bring your finger close to the very very dinky crystal near the nano's processor.
Will likely change when you bring your finger near the 25mhz ref crystal near the si5351 also.
I'd take a calibrated SW receiver, listen for the 16 and 25mhz oscillators, see if one is off frequency
then maybe try swapping out just that crystal. Especially if that signal seems somewhat unstable.
A crystal in an entirely different package will probably work if you keep the wires short.
If the 25mhz reference oscillator were unstable, that would make the ubitx receiver unstable also,
which I assume is not the case. So best guess is John's 16mhz crystal near the Nano.
What exactly do you mean by "HFOs were off far enough to effect the signal by 8dB."
So, perhaps your BFO as shipped from HFSignals was far enough from the 12mhz crystal ladder filter
that signals were down by 8dB? Or perhaps you updated your firmware, and lost the HFSignals calibration?
