Thanks Giovanni,

 

All my software is Windows, it is fairly standard. Of course I could create a whole new Linux machine, and use the somewhat complicated “solution” – but I (and most others) am unlikely to really want to do that.

 

Please consider creating something that can be used, on Windows, in a meaningful fashion for remote operation? As people have said before, the current offering is well-written and is good at doing what it does, but is disappointing and simply does not have the features required for remote operation in real use - sorry to say

Hi Mark,
in Release 1.75 - working on Linux - there is implemented a double fifo mechanism:
using an "input fifo" (usually /tmp/EladRemoteR - can be changed in setup.txt ) you can send CAT commands to DUO ART.
When needed, the answer is available on an "output fifo" (usually /tmp/EladRemoteW - can be changed in setup.txt ).
This is not working on the Win version due to OS differences.
This feature is experimental and coud be modified in future releases.
At the moment the "ouput FIFO" do not send data about DUO ART nor FDM DUO status:
but you can test if, sending a CAT enquiry, you are able to obtain CAT answer out of this fifo.
Let me know how it works for you.

Regards, Giovanni

Hi Giovanni,

 

Is it possible to obtain CAT information (I suppose, specifically, frequency) and some sort of PTT port through ELAD Remote, to make it useful for local logging, digital modes, etc?

Yes, you read correctly: you need a DUO ART + a FDM DUO to use ELAD Remote.
The reason is that the DUO ART hosts the communication software.
To be precise: the demodulation/modulation is made by the FDM DUO (as when it works in standalone mode).
Two levels of FFT/Waterfall are computed by the DUO ART.
The ELAD Remote realizes the User Interface (and computes the Audio FFT).
Hope this claryfy the operations.

Re: HLA-150 Disable amp on tune

Mark Stewart <spooter12@...>
 

Yes, I'm familiar with all the settings. It looks like the PTT line won't disable RF sense when initiating a tune from the ELAD. The manual states the PTT line disables the amp. Either the HLA-150 will not disable the RF sense, or mine is defective. I was just seeing if anyone else has the same issue.

Re: HLA-150 Disable amp on tune

Mark Gottlieb <kk2l@...>
 

You are correct.  The PTT line is not required to operate the HLA-150 since it does have RF sensing. So, the tuning cycle will always activate the amp.  When I use the amp, I want it to key up since that is how I get resonance between the amp and the antenna.  As you probably know, if the amp is not resonant with the antenna, it will automatically go off line.   Excellent amp, BTW.  I was using it on my back deck with the ELAD and was getting 200 watts output on 40m and spot-on 100 watts on 20.

Re: Using SPF-08 with Elad Duo or S2

Clint Chron
 

Success – thanks to Vianney and Ernst (DL2EBV).  I was using the wrong format in the SPF-08 Frequency table under the Duo Manager GUI of the SW-2 software.

 

The frequency for each band limit has to be in Hz.  Initially, I tried all the other combinations.

 

Example:

 

Filter 1:                 1,8000,000                           2,000,000

 

The GUI will let you save:

                                1.800                                     2.000

But that is really 1.8 Hz and 2.0 Hz.

 

Once I configured the table correctly, my test SPE control board worked correctly.  I still cannot see any SPI signals with my scope on the DB9 pins.  I will need to do some more testing.

Hi Clint,

See the table below to know the compatibility between FDM devices and preselectors :


NB: SFE board is not supported by the DUO (and by the DUO Manager inside SW2), but if you set the DUO (with the DUO Manager) to work with an SPF-08 for example, and next attach the SFE board to the DUO, it should work.

Re: Using SPF-08 with Elad Duo or S2

Hi Vianney,

 

Thanks for the info.  That is very helpful.  I will be getting a S2 on Friday to test with my SFE equivalent board.  If the SFE board works with my S2, then perhaps the SPI interface is bad in my Duo.

Would it be possible to get some details on what chip might need to be replaced?  I would hate to have to send my Duo back to Italy to have a single low cost chip replaced.

 

On the S2, I am expecting that I will easily be able to see the SPI square wave data on the SPI pins of the DB9 connector.  With my Duo, I can see the I2C data but no SPI data.

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 have an SPF-08 with my DUO. Works fine in standalone. I configured the filter selection originally using SW2.

Is anyone using a SPF-8 pre-selector with their Duo or S2?  If so, I wonder what version of SW-2 software you are using.  Also, are you able to use your Duo in a standalone mode with the SPF-08 without having to run the SW-2 software.  I have not done any testing with the SPI interface on the radios's DB9 for about two years.  Currently, I cannot see any SPI signals on pins 1, 3, & 8.  I do not know if my Duo's SPI interface is bad or if there is some other problem.  In reviewing the available docs, I am not sure I understand how the SPF-08 could work with a Duo in the stand-alone mode.  Obviously with the S2, you have to use the SW-2 software in order to use the receiver.

Hello,

I just like to add, that the DUOr with built-in card slots and relays is programmed in the same way as the SPF-08 and DUO combination.
Two USB cables are required for the programming phase. This may seem a little odd, but it works fine.
