in N1MM+ this radio is not supported yet as you know it with the mkV .
in config tab , look at the end of the table the  'so2v dual receive' function is greyed out.   I hope the software writers will  add this great function.

Maybe you can ask the N1MM team  when they will do this.

Re: Diversity for Digital Modes

Mike, I just remembered a video I´ve made months ago, comparing two dipoles, one horizontal connected to one receiver, and a second dipole, vertical, connected to the second receiver.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xDvXnL7LmdE

 

I managed to get audio from both receivers into the computer, by USB, and record every receiver in one stereo channel.

Main receiver into left channel. Subreceiver into right channel.

 

So, you get audio from both receivers into the computer by USB.

 

I think standard digitals software let you select either left, right, or both at same time, combined or mixed.

You can use an audio mixer (Banana Mixer) to get your own mix.

But the only software I now to use a type of diversity on digitals is MAP65:

https://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/k1jt/map65.html

 

You can try to feed MAP65 with audio from both receivers, and see what is able to do.

 

Please, keep us posted on your findings.

 

73, Maximo

I see what you meant.

 

It seems USB only brings one channel audio??

Well, as plan B what you can do is to use headset audio, where you can use “Combine-1” option in the radio´s menu, to get one receiver´s audio in each channel (right + left).

Or you can use rear audio outputs, and feed your sound card in the computer, both channels.

Maximo -  Your misunderstanding my question.

Yes I have diversity fully setup in SSB VOICE and using it regularly with no issues - I am aware that it is RX only. Its obvious lol.

The issue is ONLY the MAIN channel sends the signal via USB to the computer for the software to capture and decode.  It will NOT send at the same time the SUB channel which my second antenna is bound to.  There would need to be an additional sound device that would need to be configured to each audio channel (right and left) bound to both MAIN and SUB respectively.

so I ask again - Anyone ever get this working?

The way I do it is to punch the main or sub button when I want to change VFO. That way the log screen changes from VFO A to VFO B. I usually leave one VFO on one band, the other on a different band, and the band scope set to show the two bands.  But I do press the receive buttons if I want to audibly monitor two different bands. Working split, I press the split button and set to frequency by typing it in the entry window.

Re: Is there a setting to remember which antenna on a per band basis?

Brian Smithson <brianesmithson@...>
 

You know, I use DX Lab, and the "Commander" app talks to the radios, and is very very flexible. There are ways to customize the CAT comms, so maybe I'll look at that and see if I can inject the BS command.

Brian Smithson <brianesmithson@...>
 

The problem folks are running into is that software, like loggers, WSJT, etc. are sending CAT commands to the radio to change frequency. The radio doesn't automagically recognize the band change and switch antennas. Pressing a band button or even a QMB to a frequency on another band will change antennas.

I think that if the "BS" CAT command was sent first - "Band Select" - followed by the frequency, the right antenna might be selected. It's unlikely the software authors would make this change.

There are 3 antenna input on back of the radio

 

How can I get radio to remember what input to use for each band ?

Re: Diversity for Digital Modes

Maximo EA1DDO - M0HAO - HK1H
 

Hi Mike,

 

“Diversity” is for Rx only. There is no Diversity on Tx.

FTDx101 is able to use two different receiver with two different antennas, but there is no phasing capability to combine both signal at different phases.

 

I´ve tried two receivers at same time, with different antennas. You can check a video here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xDvXnL7LmdE

 

What you can do is to mix both audio signal, from both receivers, into just one output, then feed that mixed audio to the Digital Mode´s software.

In the FTDx101´s menu there is an option to mix audio from both receivers.

 

73, Maximo EA1DDO

Is it possible to couple 2 different antennas for Digital Modes?   I cant seem to send the signal to my computer from BOTH antenna inputs.  No issues with Diversity for SSB VOICE.

Re: Radiosport headserts

My problem was a homemade mic junction box that I use with a Heil desk mic and another headset.  Not an Electret type mic. All work just fine.  I had to rewire for Yaesu from Elecraft/Kenwood..  I realize that there is 5V available on pin 2, which can be used for bias. 
I ordered another cable for my headsets.  I only use headset/mic for contesting..
Thanks everyone.

Re: Radiosport headserts

Scott Ellington <K9ma@...>
 

Note that Radiosport headsets are available with either an electret or a dynamic microphone. Only the electret requires bias. Perhaps Radiosport can supply a cable for the FDdx101 wired for the electret. It won't be cheap.

Re: Radiosport headserts

Brian Smithson <brianesmithson@...>
 

At the risk of suggesting yet more hardware, I use the MicroKeyer III on my '101. I used a MK2 on my '5000 and earlier radios. They have oodles of config options and one is mic bias. The MK2 had a jumper inside and the MK3 does it on a menu. Easy-peasy. Plus you get mic level settings and all the fancy soundcard digital stuff.

No affiliation, just a long-time happy customer.

The little splitter box that seperates Mike and Headphone connectors has some little DIL switches inside which enable the various options, US versions may differ I don't know.
One of which was to put the bias voltage onto the microphone element.
It works fine with the FTDX101MP and gives good audio reports with minimal adjustments from my MD-100 desk mike
