Look at your wave out setting. It should be the “Line ELAD FDM DUO Audio device”

Does your Win10 installation think that SW2 doesn't have permission to use microphone devices?

Good morning all

I made a recording last night and I noticed a frequency shift of 200khz after 15 minutes while reading it.
After some tests, I noticed that if I touch the main knob (VFO Tuning) while recording it would shift the frequency on the .WAV, which makes the frequencies wrong on the recording.
I have a few questions:

1 °) is this error known?
2 °) is there a way to compensate for this shift in order to make this recording more practical to read?

While playing the recording, I wanted to enter a frequency directly by typing it on my keyboard. The behavior is totally erratic, what I was listening to that 434khz was displayed at 507khz.

3 °) is this a known error or a limitation?

Thank you for your answers.


Re: FDM Duo presents 0 ohms / short circuit on TX/RX antenna port

Thanks Neil

It seems counterintuitive, but that is RF electronics for you!

Many thanks for the responses. Didn't like the idea of having a broken FDM Duo, given I bought it 2nd hand and have only used it a handful of times so far!

Regards, Mark.

Hallo Raimund, 

Thanks for the feedback. I have sent a request for RFScanner and will continue to troubleshoot.

I am really hoping that I can get SW-2 to send the tuning frequency selected via mouseclick in the waterfall back to other software connected via cat.

Thanks again!

Oooh, if I sort the table with the dupe in, then save, it says "please remove line 9", but if I add it *without* sorting, I just get the "Please check the preset table"

I guess this needs reporting as a bug. Behaviour should be that it warns you and tells you which is the dupe, or it should delete the dupe as it did previously.

Needs someone more patient than me to check all the options, including dupes of the standard values and dupes of nonstandard values.

If you can't find the dupe in the list, select Sort, then look again.

Re: Duplicates are not allowed in the bw/preset table,..,. warning message

If I add a duplicate in setup in 3.046 it now warns me, but still saves it.  Check for a dupe of 1000 in the setup GUI, or compare the line in:

Documents\ELAD\FDM-SW2\FDMSW2SwSetup.xml

with mine, which is now:

<FreqStepDefaultPreset value="1/5/10/25/50/100/250/500/1000/2000/3000/4500/5000/7500/9000/10000/12500/25000/50000/100000/125000/150000/" />

The first two are my custom settings.

Funny it didn't warn about the dupe in 3.041, but deleted it silently on startup.

Re: Duplicates are not allowed in the bw/preset table,..,. warning message

I can't get the warning to appear in 3.041 even if I insert a duplicate manually into the config.

What is the value of FreqStepDefaultPreset in your Documents\ELAD\FDM-SW2\FDMSW2SwSetup.xml file look like?

Mine is: 

<FreqStepDefaultPreset value="1/5/10/25/50/100/250/500/1000/2000/3000/4500/5000/7500/9000/10000/12500/25000/50000/100000/125000/150000/" />

Have you tried saving a copy of that xml file and deleting the original, then starting the program to see if it adds or changes anything whe it is re-created?  You'll lose any customisations, but you can parse out the changes with an XML-aware diff tool and paste back any cutomised sections, or just set those settings back as you like them and save the config.

I'll give 3.046 a try.

Hi Mark, this is the input circuit:

and as you can  see, there is a DC path to ground on the main antenna port.  The RX port has back to back diodes and a 350V protection device, so what you are seeing is normal.  Mine measures at 0.230 ohms. Problem is elsewhere I guess!

Is it worth attempting a reset of the transceiver, or does this sound more serious? I can't think of any reason why the antenna connection would be shorted, but I might be wrong? Have I entered a strange mode without realising?

Many thanks in advance for any suggestions,

OK, so an update is called for.

Having plugged a dummy load directly into the transceiver via a power meter I found that it appeared to be working fine.
When I reconnected the amplifier it didn't have an issue and is working fine.

The antenna output is still presenting a very low resistance at DC. Maybe, thinking about it, that is to be expected?

Anyway, I don't have a problem, not sure what the issue was. The amplifier might just be being picky when starting up for some reason, or the fault actually indicated a different problem and I jumped to conclusions about the 0 ohm antenna port having questioned whether there was a short in the new cable.

Still clearly have a lot to learn!
