You mean Software 3.005?
I can confirm that ELAD FDM-SW2 3.005 still crashes as soon as I cklick "Test CAT" in WSJT-X (using FT-897, trying Standard, Slave and VRX mode in CAT configuration, trying both a pair in COM0COM and VSPE).
Below the (German) crash message.
The crash seems to be related to the use of RTS "High" handshaking with rig FT-897, as I wrote here.

Like all older FDM-SW2 versions before v3 , the software still doesn't start correctly if CPU C-states C3 and lower are disabled via computer bios setting. It just shows fixed S9+60dB signal level and no spectrum or reception. Why is this? FDM-SW1 works fine, so what was changed that caused this problem? I'm using FDM-S1 receiver.

Your friendly favorite support person here 😉. I have two users experiencing crashes with Remote VRX/CAT/Omnirig in SW2 v3.002 is there anyone else on the list having issues, or do you have it working, I can reproduce the crash here, just trying to gather the data if anyone one else is also having the problem.

Sudden failure of SSB

Alan Skerker <alanskerker@...>
 

In the middle of an FT8 session power dropped from 37 dBm to 23 dBm. Disconnected digital interface and switched to SSB with Mic but power remained at same low level (about 250 mw). Power on CW is fine. Also did reset but no change. Could this be failure of audio in ADC? Where can one get repair for FDM Duo?

Re: SW2 Waterfall

Neil Smith G4DBN
 

A quick example, this signal is 8.3dB over noise in 11.7Hz bandwidth.  At lowest contrast,up near the top of the waterfall, it is almost invisible, but it stands out well at max contrast near the bottom after I adjusted the limits on the slider.  8.3dB in 11.7Hz is equivalent to an SNR of about -16dB in 2.7kHz bandwidth.  I can see down to about -23dB in 2.7kHz in the main waterfall and -25dB or so in the IF window.  Depends a bit on your definition of "weak" I guess!  WSPR could probably pull something out a bit weaker, and Ebnaut probably a lot weaker than even WSPR.  Hope that helps, if not, can you explain in a bit more detail and I'm sure someone will pop up with suggestions.  I'm just a "weak beacons" nut.

Re: SW2 Waterfall

Neil Smith G4DBN
 

Have you changed the contrast setting slider?  I can see signals which are less than 1dB over noise at max contrast.

I am looking at a very weak SHF beacon, and I have the colour range set to a total range of 13dB, so even 0.5dB of signal stands out very well.  Just grab the top or bottom of the rainbow slider and set the range to a smaller range, then slide it up and down to set the optimum point, where band noise just starts to show as dark blue.

Re: SPLIT macro

Kjell-Goran SM4GRP
 

Hi again,

Answering my own question, I would say the best way of implementing SPLIT, for Stand Alone mode with the DUO controlled by SW2, with what CAT commands etc are at hand for the moment, is making two macros:

 

Macro 1:

SEARCH;SP0;FR0;

This macro disables split mode and enables VFO A for tuning around searching for stations. It is necessary to disable split mode since it is not possible to do VFO A = VFO B while in split mode.

 

Macro 2:

SPLIT;FR0;SP1;

This macro enables VFO A and SPLIT mode. It's necessary to also enable VFO A for listening on the RX frequency since manually pushing A=B on the DUO always presents/enables VFO B as a result.

 

Operate like this:

  1. Press the SEARCH macro button.

    VFO A is ready for searching around looking for a station to work.

  2. When you have found a station to work and want to work split, do the following:

    Manually press F2 (long) on the DUO to execute VFO A = VFO B.

  3. Press the SPLIT macro button.

    Ready to work split with RX fq on VFO A and TX fq on VFO B. Both VFOs on the same fq. VFO A enabled for listening.

  4. When the QSO is finished GO TO step 1 to continue tuning around for another station.


Working split mode easily with SW2 in another question. It is too akward today. Let's hope for an easy-to-use split functionality in SW2 in a future release.

I didn't suggest you to use a Raspberry... that was just an example to show that even
a CPU with a modest processing power can cope with 6144 kS/sec sampling rate...

And the fact that you are just one of the very few having problems with high sampling
rates indicates that neither the S2 nor the CPU you are using can be the culprit.

What remains ? I thought that maybe the USB could be the culprit, but you say that
you have tried many... so at this point a thorough analysis must be done, but this kind
of analysis cannot be done at distance... you must do it yourself...

Re: SPLIT macro

Neil
You seems to have a very interesting life, but you are far ahead of me in squeezing everything out of the DUO, even though I am/was an EE enginer myself. Mostly managing though. Glad that you make such a contribution to this group.

It would be great if ELAD implemented a CAT command for VFO equalisation. I think VFO B = VFO A would be best if you use A for tuning around and then writing that fq into B before starting next QSO in split mode. I should maybe raise a wish ticket on this.

I guess it would be a lot of work for Elad to implement a scripting language which would allow us to use the response from an FA; or FB; or other read command and extract the current value, then use that in another command.  I use a simple little program which uses the standalone CAT to emulate the SPLIT, A/B, A=B buttons on other radios, plus some presets for UP1 and UP5.  , but I am thinking of making a new device which will replace my Tmate1 and which will have two VFO knobs and some preset offsets, plus a more useable RIT facility, and a way to program in the offset frequencies for all of my transverters.

Problem with using the serial port for this is that I don't use a port broker, so it won't work when I use logging programs or digimodes.  I am very tempted to include a hardware USB serial port broker so I can use multiple programs with having to rely on something like Omnirig.  So many projects, only one life...

Hi all,
I'm looking for an easy way to enable/disable SPLIT mode and align the VFOs while searching and working stations, using the DUO Stand Alone but controlling it via SW2. When I start a QSO where SPLIT is necessary it would be very helpful to have a quick click-on-one-button-only type of thing (macro) to align the VFOs, lock VFO B on TX fq and to enable VFO A for listening around that fq. Coming from search mode looking for stations to work (using VFO A) it would be very helpful to have a CAT command for VFO A = VFO B or vice versa.

 

The CAT commands available today are SP for initializing SPLIT mode and FA and FB where you read and set the VFO frequencies. I have one problem though; when reading a VFO fq, where does the answer end up? How can I get hold of that in order to use it to set the other VFO fq? I'm a beginner in using CAT commands but they look handy to control various parameters in the DUO. I have done a couple of macros but none where I read, only set so far. I did make a test macro for reading a VFO fq but where is the answer? I suppose I have to make some kind of program that reads the answers from the DUO. Much more work than if ELAD implemented a new additional CAT command VFO A = VFO B and VFO B = VFO A. It could be named VE (VFOs equal).
