FDM-SW2 setup with Fldigi

greggilbert195@...
 

Hi Group,


Would like to see if one can setup the FDM-SW2 to control the Fldigi software. And also have the Fldigi control the SW2. 

FDM-SW2 setup: Remote Ctrl:

1) What CAT Mode to use?

    a. Standard

    b. Slave

    c. VRX

2) Use Omnirig? What settings?

    a. Rig 1

    b. Rig type FT-897? // or a TS-(xxx) setting?

    c. And other tabs....Data bits, Stop bits, etc.

3) Fldigi Configure: Rig control:

    a) Use Hamlib...?

    b) Rig Yaesu FT-897 (Beta)? 

    c) And other tabs....Data bits, Stop bits, etc.

Thanks for any ideas.

Wow, didn't realise pa unit was going to give up access

This just gets better all the time. I did look at expert electronics sdr pro2 ( currently on offer from Martin Lynch and co this weekend) but would rather stick with elad duo

It means that the PA will be the portal to connect your FDM-DUO from anywhere in which you can get on the internet.

TRhis is more commonly called "remote control".

It is what the world of K3, FLEX, and ICOYAWOOD is doing.

At that time, with the FDM-DUO docked with the PA, you too will have the a rig that many consider suprerior to FLEX.

How?

Dxcluster does not work

Frans Gosen
 

When I try to connect a dxcluster I get connected to "login"
When I sent my callsign I get as answer "PA3CDN is not a valid callsing"
(On different Dxclusters I get the same message)
It worked before fine but after a Windows10 update it failed.
Also the comport 5 has been changed in comport 4 after the Windows10 update.
The Elad FDM Duo works normal so far I can see.
Any suggestion ?

Lock To CF

greggilbert195@...
 

Group,


How do I unlock / release the white tab button: Lock To CF under RX1?

It is sticking and will not un-release by mouse clicking on the tab button.


Comments welcome.


Thanks,


Greg



Re: Strange jumping spectrum in ELAD FDM SW-2

Keith McGinnis
 

Of course I Murphy's law struck and about 10 minutes ago the jumping started after not seeing it here for quite some time. When I tune outside of FM (say 82 mhz) no jumping is noted. Checked around the house to see if anyone turned anything on and no one did.

Let's see when it goes away.

Hello,
Since some time I have a strange issue with my ELAD FDM S2. Now and then the
spectrum starts to jump up and down for a some minutes but recently it is
happening much more often and for a longer time. It is only happening in
the regular broadcast FM band. Not in the OIRT band. After some time it goes
away automatically. I don't see the jumps in SDR-radio V3 in combination
with the Elad but I think that software is just smoothing the jumps away.
You can see in in this short video:
https://youtu.be/zRvXUA1p6Vw
Note that the amplitudes and noise floor are both jumping.
Here two pictures from the beginning and the end of the band.

and
https://app.box.com/s/m7sr87rqc9okzygf4jg2v0usbf1koazc
So you'll see that the dancing noise floor is not occurring further away
from the FM broadcast band.
I am wondering what can be the cause of this. I have checked the connections
and they seem to be OK. As said it only happens in the FM-band. Can this be
caused by some kind of external interference or is the chance that it has to
do with a hardware failure more likely ?
I hope somebody can help me.

Re: Strange jumping spectrum in ELAD FDM SW-2 SOLVED for now

Keith McGinnis
 

I was copying some info from a CD to a USB thumb drive while the jumping was happening. Basically stopped after I finished copying. Tried it again and the jumping started. Switched out CD's and thumb drives and no jumping. Put the original Thumb drive back in with different CD's and spectrum started jumping again. Looks like a bad thumb drive???

Nice to see you solved it Keith, but that is definitely not the reason why
this is happening here. I have to search further. Anyway, thanks for
telling.

Re: Using an ELAD FDM-S2 receiver in conjunction with ELAD DUO

First of all, don't mix up the product FDM-S2 with the product FDM-SW2 ... both are products from Elad, but they are two completely different things...
It is unfortunate that Elad did choose two names so similar, that many times in this discussion group are erroneously exchanged...

After having said that, the receiver portion of the DUO is practically identical to that of the S2... same ADC, same FPGA, etc.   both can use (among others)
the software product FDM-SW2.  So, if you don't have any other use for the FDM-S2, you can resell it. Or use it in conjunction with the transmitter part of a
traditional transceiver...

Mute FDM S2

Nigel Field
 

The diagram in Annex A of the Software installation guide states to Mute the receiver connect pin 6 to ground pin 5. This has no effect on my S2, it does not mute so the RX box needs to be set to mute when used with my AM transmitter.  Is there some secret to making this RX mute through the DB9 connector as advertised.

Moving a PROFILE from one ELAD computer to another?

Steve Tripp
 

Hello, All


Goal to have Audio settings for the mic TX from one PC to Anther

so as to move it over to my computer Elad SWR2


Given:

Top Right corner of main screen has a person figure for profiles:

I want to popigate one of the 8 slots with a profile made by another ELAD user:

I have a friend that has an audio PROFILE that I want to copy:

I get him to email me the tab folder from his saved profile

I delete the files inside my profile box and move his profile in


The software crashes and I have to delete all files in the document section

And then uninstall and reinstall the 1.58 Beta to get the program back uP


This is an new operator error I am sure:

I just want my friends -  Audio settings from his Elad Document section to be saved to my profile 1of 8 spots

in my Document section?


Thanks for any help

ELAD FDM-S2 VHF2 Band

Michael Wheatley
 

I have an ELAD FDM-S2 and a newly acquired ICOM ID5100A.  I have them both tuned to 145.230 Mhz and I've manually switched the antenna (a Comet DS-150S Discone) between the two rigs.  145.230 is a local repeater near Palo Alto, California.


The ICOM ID5100A picks up the station easily with strong signals.  On the ELAD FDM-S2, I get a very poor, barely audible signal with background noise and an audible low hum.  The spectrum in SW2 shows the signa at -95 db and the noise at -110 db.


Is there any reason that the S2 performs so much worse than the ICOM?  


Michael Wheatley

Re: ELAD FDM-S2 VHF2 Band

lasse moell
 

My S2 do work nicely on 2 meter. Have been listening to weak signals and beacons. So it sounds like you do have an issue with your radio. Just to make dead sure... you did switch antenna ports on the radio? Easy to forget what input to use :) Using FM demodulator and 15 kHz BW and a signal 15 dB above the noise should be easy copied. And almost noise free on FM.

Noise level is dependant on what resolution BW you are using...
