Yes, it works fine in standalone with the PC turned off and it changes as I tune to different bands.

The manager is where it has always been, at least as far as I can recall.  It was 3 years ago when I last used the FDM-DUO MANAGER button in the stand-alone control panel.

I leave the 12/10m filter enabled when using transverters, but only because I have *HUGE* 42MHz LO leakage on my 70MHz transverter. Once I get my new G4DDK transverter built, I'll change the filter 7 setting so 28MHz upwards uses straight-through.

Hi Neil,

 

So you can use the SPF-08 without the SW-2 software?  I assume that you initially had to use the SW-2 software to tell the Duo what frequency ranges to use for each band.   Does your version of SW-2 software show the “hardware tab” on the setup menu.  The older versions of software showed that tab, but it has not been there for several later versions.

I'm using the FDM-DUO as a 28 MHz IF radio with Khune transverters on 432 MHz and 1296 MHz.

FDM DUO performance on EME has been excellent.  It's great to see the entire EME band and feed multiple instances of WSJT-X via VACs.

The transverters already have excellent filtering.  Do you think I would benefit from using the SPF-08 with a 28 MHz filter?

EME types are always looking for another 0.1 of a dB.

Re: ELAD Remote

Hi Charles,

I have also spent much time to get it up and running, with some mail-exchange with support, which has lead to some improvements in the EladRemote v.1.75.

The local SSB-qso's were made via a laptop with 1. internal mic, and 2. with a "gaming" headset with boom-mic. Got some complaints about my audio, clearly worst on lap-top-mic, but also on the gaming-mic.

And I agree, you can't get all displays available on the SW2 via EladRemote, only spectrum/waterfall and audio. And there are many ways of tuning many controls, especially when using a mouse with scroll-wheel.

Even when running inside a local network the delay/roundtriptime is quite noticeable.

But the v.175 is much easier to install than previous versions.

Why have a remotecontrolled SDR receiver:

manmade noise where you live,
and for the remote tx: better antenna possibilities.

I have both antenna and noise at home, but only noise at my vacation-qth, not unlimited antenna, but remarkably better than home.
On 80m SSB 2k5 the noise is at S9+, but using Elads NR level 2 without noticable NR-noise, it drops below S7, with SW2 even lower.

Re: ELAD Remote

Charles Ristorcelli
 

Well, thank for the information so far.

I spent considerable time getting the remote feature to work reliably. I was able to get it to function by remote controlling an ELAD/ART120 at the Italian factory from here in San Diego.

Espen: I am curious what you mean about "a couple of 80m SSB-qsos..". Were you also running some log in program at the time? Like HRD or similar?

When I got the remote control capability to work I saw absolutely no way to present the SW2 displays, and I sure as heck was not going to spend time tuning through the band in the hopes of HEARING a signal with which I could communicate.

I inquired at the time (about 2 years ago) and was told that there was no plan to allow SW2 operation of the remote control capability.

Well, without the SW2 presentation, what is the point of having an SDR remote controlled transceiver?

I may be completely ignorant in which case I apologize.

I have had a couple of 80m SSB-qso's on home-network. I also want to test CW with both paddle and key, I am a bit curious to see how it plays with the long Roudtriptime.
I hope to get some good antennas installed at my vacation-qth to run remotely from home, where it is a bit tricky to install godd antennas.

S2: Is there a factory reset for the hardware?

Ron Hunsicker
 

The power light failure is a common one.  On my failed, was repaired, and failed again.  Unlike yours it worked fine and I realized that I didn't need a power light.

Read the manual carefully:  My recollection is that doing a reset may require resetting the internal clocks.

S2: Is there a factory reset for the hardware?

Bill Alpert
 

My S2 just started to act strangely. Power light no longer comes on, though the computer and radio on is and seems to be working. Also the Omnirig sync is also off. It is tracking my IC-7300, but it is off by several kilocycles, when it was syncing perfectly just before. Tried an alternate USB cable, but no luck.
Wondering if there is a factory reset of the hardware? Or could it be a software issue?

ELAD Remote Software

Charles Ristorcelli
 

Hi all. Been a while since I've perused the ELAD group.

This may have been answered already so forgive the rehash.

I was pleased to read the "news" post that has a very lengthy series of messages about the new SW2 and ART-120 software and firmware versions, and alludes to improvements in ELAD Remote software.

I someone able to articulate the operational improvements in ELAD remote software?

For example, does it improve the user interface in order to better support ham radio QSO experience? Does it bring about full presentation of SW2 operator interface to allow point-click frequency changes and QSO initiation of XMIT/RCV capability?

If you bring up the Settings or the Playback File selection window and e.g. press Cancel to get back to the main screen, pressing Enter will bring the previously visited window back up. For example, if you dial in a frequiency and press Enter, you will be shown the Settings screen! The Memory Panel and the Logbook do not seem to cause the same effect.

Re: WSJT-x TX CUT OFF

Antony Watts
 

Hi

You don’t say if your loss of TX is due to PTT switching off TX, or loss of USB audio.

I suffered from loss of audio until

- I upgraded to the latest WSJT (which on the Mac is 2.1.0), and also
- disconected another USB device, which I think was overloading the 5V power output.
