Also make sure that Noise Reduction is not turned on or if it is that the level is not excessive (been there, done that!).

Lack of Audio Volume

I'm sure this is going to be a flat-forehead mistake, but even with my volume cranked up to 100, I get very little volume from the rig. Same with the PC software and the PC's speaker volume on MAX. Where should I look to fix this?

Re: Still asking about the Demod Tab

Hi Neil and Alan,

Thanks for the explanations.
I was hoping it was something to do with filter performance, but alas not.
As an NDB-hunter, I find the feature useless. The narrow filter and the
notches help a great deal, of course. But I listen to the NDB slow CW in an
audio bandwidth of about 6Hz. I can see a use for the feature in a QSO
situation as Neil describes, but it seems it is not something I will need.
Nice to know what it does, though.

Many Thanks
David, GM8XBZ

Hi David, explaining what that setting *does* is easy. What it is *for*
is a more complex question.
Neil,

A group seach seems to say it's simply for NDB reception.

When you select the mode CW SH+ or CW SH- in SW2, the CW passband is moved up (or down) by that SH Delta frequency. The tuning freq stays where it was, but the actual receive passband is offset up (or down) by that offset.
For example, if I am listening on 14200.000 USB and someone starts sending me CW with one of those rigs which sends 600Hz above the tuning frequency (as some seem to) then I can just select CW SH+ mode and it gives me a CW passband which is offset from my tuning frequency. If I set 200Hz BW, and a 600Hz SH Delta, it gives me a receive passband from 14200.500 to 14200.700. If I had an 800Hz delta and 100Hz BW, the passband would be from 14200.750 to 14200.850 and so on.
However, my transmit frequency appears to remain on 14200.000, which is weird and makes the mode pretty much useless. I hope someone with more knowledge about this can fill you (and me) in.
The use-case I can imagine is like last Tuesday, when I was trying to work a weak station on 13cm USB. He came back to me on CW, but 600Hz up from my tuning frequency, so I could hear him fine in USB mode, but I needed to select CW mode and move up 600Hz to work him. If CW SH+ worked as I expect it to, I could just hit that mode, hear him with a 600Hz beat note and work him on his own carrier frequency. Sadly, in CW SH+, I would be sending 600Hz below his frequency and lose the QSO. If he called me zero-beat, I would miss him of course because of the excellent filtering inthe DUO.
There were some discussions a year or so back about why the tuning on CW works backwards, which led to the REV option, which gives a much more intuitive CW experience. I think someone added in some comments on the CW SH modes, but I can't recall any details. Maybe some judicious searches on the very excellent and comprehensive search utility in Yahoo Groups might find something. He said, with a hint of sarcasm.
If anyone can explain how to use CW SH+ (or any other technique) to work stations who call me on CW offset 600Hz HF while I am using USB, without having to change my tuning frequency, I'd be hugely grateful.

Hello All,

I asked the question several weeks ago, but it appears no-one knows the
answer.
On the Demod tab, I can set the CW pitch. But what does "CW SH Delta Freq"
mean? Presumably something to do with the filter shape, but I can't guess
what the abbreviation means.

Is there anyone who will share their knowledge?

Best Wishes

This actually works much better than the web interface if you are just interested in controlling the FDM-DUO from another location in your home.

Maybe it's a feature that glows in proportion with the sunspot-cycle intensity? :)

Sounds like hardware failure - hard to see how it would affect the radio though.

Re: remote control using......

Patrick Bouldin
 

Hi Mike, I am interested as well in the replies.

I was able to port the receiver via a server installed, as described in the instructions - but are you suggesting full control - with porting your voice, etc.?

Someone correct me, but I haven't seen that. 

However, I think you could do it by remote controlling the PC connected to the radio using something like LogMeIn. https://secure.logmein.com/home/ I know it does transport the full screen, and also the host PC audio. I "think" it will transport your microphone on the remote machine to the host pc but I've not tried that yet.

remote control using......

Mike Woloszyn
 

hello all....


read that one can perform this function.........
Remote control via local network (only with Firefoxbrowser). Can someone explain how to be able to remotely access my S2 rcvr all on the same local network.


I have tried Teamviewer, works ok, but laggy and not very smooth operation. I have high speed cable internet connection.

Thank you
Mike





Start CW messages from SW2

Kjell-Goran SM4GRP
 

Hi all,
I have searched the SW2 manual for info on how to start CW messages from SW2 without success. Haven't found anything. It is possible to start one preset CW message from the DUO itself with the F4 or F5 button but there must be a way to do it from SW2. But how?

73 / Kjell-Göran SM4GRP



Re: Minor problem with FDM-S2

Richard Brown
 

Sounds like a low voltage problem. Are you using the USB Y adapter, and supplying extra power with it? If so, check the connections, and the amperage of the externally supplied power. Bus power alone is not enough for the S2. Even if connected to a USB 3 hub or port, the S2 will connect as USB2, which limits current flow through the bus.

Let us know what you find.

Re: TX switching delay DUO

Neil Smith G4DBN
 

Hi Randy, it you click on the TX at the top of the waterfall, then on the ADV tab, it brings up a screen like this, wiht TUNE and PTT and a graphic equaliser, VOX, compressor and filter settings and the option to play files.  You have to click on the start button at bottom right to enable the PTT and the others to enable the various functions.

Graeme,  Not sure I can advise as I have always used PTT on FDM Duo and didn't even realize there was a PTT on SW2.  
Where exactly is it located on screen as I can't seem to find it in manual?

VS: Minor problem with FDM-S2

Hi,

 

I had the same thing on the other of my two S2s happening last week. Now, the light is on again.

 

There has been several reports of this “feature”…

Aihe: [elad_sdr_en] Minor problem with FDM-S2

 

 

Been using my FDM-S2 for a while and all has been good.

Just today I turned on the S2 and the blue ON LED was lit as usual. Then I loaded FDM-SW2 OK. As soon as I clicked the Power On button on SW2 the S2 ON LED went out. Other than that the S2 is behaving normally with SW2; as I change band the USB light on the S2 blinks momentarily, again as normal.

 

When I looked closely at the S2 ON LED it wasn't completely out but very dim and flickering a bit. It has been on for a bit and the ON LED is now completely out. But otherwise the S2 seems OK.

 

Has anyone else experienced this, and if so should I be worried; is a complete failure of the S2 going to happen soon?

 

Thanks,

Andrew G4AFI
