IC-7300 OVF-colsein-02

ADC Clip Levels – (light the on-screen OVF red icon) OVF indication occurs only when a strong out-of-channel signal is present. In-channel signals cause AGC action which attenuates the signal at the Rx ADC imput  (LTC2208-14) via an diode PIN BAP70Q (D1251).

Recirpocal Mixing Noise occurs in a direct-sampling SDR receiver when the phase-noise sidebands of the Rx ADC clock mix with strong signals close in frequency to the wanted signal, producing unwanted noise products in the detection channel and degrading the receiver sensitivity.

A proposito di parametri di test e di confronto nei vari ricevitori per HF di tipo supereterodina tradizionali oppure di tipo digitali SDR leggere quanto scrive Adam come riporto qui sotto e poi su QEX n. 3-4 2015.

QST April 2015 reviews the FLEX-6300 nad FLEX-6700 two SDR Transceivers products FlexRadio Systems made in USA (! Note: to access this resource you need to ARRL log-in)

QST-3-2015I tradizionali valori di DR3 (3rd-Order Dinamic Range dB), IP3 (3rd-Order Inrcept Point +/- dBm) e di Dinamica di blocco (Blocking Gain Compression dB) sono “numeri” poco validi nel contesto di una radio SDR a campionamento diretto. (-dBFS per un ADC converter) –
Per questo, Adam Farsom, VA7OJ ha proposto di usare come standard il metodo IFSS (Interference-Free Signal Strength) per il test IMD (Two-Tone Intermodulation Dinamic Range) in ricevitori a campionamento-diretto (Direct-sampling SDR). – Adam, VA7OJ wrote a terrific article in the latest March/April 2015 issue of QEX Magazine. – I wish ARRL would standardize on tests, and preferably use the (NPR) Noise Power Ratio test methodology.

FTDX-1200 & FTDX-3000 Now Adj. RF Power SSB With CAR Knob – Analog or SDR RTX?

FTDX-1200 Update Ver. 01.09 and FTDX-3000 Update Ver. 01.19  (08/07/2014) now adjusts the TX RF Power output for SSB & CW modes with the [PROC/CAR] knob on front panel.

After loaded new firmware, the Menu item now gives “177 TX GNRL” option to selects: TX PWR or PROC CONTROL. (Default setting: TX PWR) – New firmware includes additional improvements of functions and optimization.

italianoAggiornamenti Yaesu – Nuove versioni del firmware per FTDX-1200 update MAIN V.01.09 e per FTDX-3000 update MAIN V.01.19 sono sul Sito-web di  Yaesu USA –
Dopo aver caricato i nuovi software, il passo del menù “177” prevede ora l’opzione per il controllo continuo della potenza TX RF output anche  in SSB. Oppure del livello del Processore, con l’uso diretto della manopola [PROC/CAR] così come avveniva prima solo per il modo modo CW.  Le altre istruzioni in modo diverso dalla SSB rimangono invariate. Yaesu dichiara che, nei nuovi firmware, sono inclusi altri miglioramenti di funzionamento e altre ottimizzazione.

It makes logical sense that Icom’s, Yaesu’s next product should be a stand-alone SDR. – The superheterodyne with IF-DSP architecture has reached a point of maturity beyond which little, if any improvement is possible! –

Who will be leader in SDR Radio – See what happens over the Ham Fair 2014

SDR Direct Sampling Radio with latest digital technoIogy will advance very rapidly! – I think I would probably wait and see what happens over the  Ham Fair 2014 will be held at Tokyo on August 23rd and 24th, maybe Icom Inc. or someone else in Japan  will announce an even more fantastic SDR!?
The big question is this, though: Are the Japanese ready to tackle a software project of this magnitude? ….(icom I will do it!)

Image featuring two top Amateur Radio Base stations, the IC-781 and the IC-7800 (Icom Uk G+)

Vista l’evoluzione tecnologica nel settore, ora ha senso logico che il prossimo prodotto di Icom Inc. dovrebbe essere un SDR stand-alone! –  L’architettura Superhet/DSP ha raggiunto oramai la maturità e non credo che Icom Inc., o qualsiasi altro produttore, possano ottenere ulteriori performance utili se non si passa all’impiego di circuiti SDR total-based!

FlexPAD-interface_max

FlexRadio Systems USA scrive: we are the leader in SDR (ad in QST!) quindi continua con altre innovazioni – Infatti un’altra novità “coming soon” dopo l’ultimo Flex-6300, atteso in consegna per Settembre 2014, sembra essere questa FlexPAD, una flessibile interfaccia utente per il controllo remoto della serie Flex-6000’s tramite collegamenti in rete LAN (locale) oppure in WAN (remoto). Funziona con tasti e manopole e con l’inserimento di un iPad in touch-screen (non fornito!) una vera integrazione di tecnologie diverse e solo se vorrai potrai usare anche il tuo Computer!

Codan Envoy™ – HF Software Defined Radio (SDR) Link Management

The CODAN’s Envoy™ is a HF powerful software defined radio (SDR) communications  Manpak Transceiver made in Australia by  Codan Limited A.C.N. – Codan  is trusted around the globe for humanitarian public safety, and security mission. – The Envoy™allows voice communication from the field using RF to a base station routed through the Internet to another country in real time.  See the CALM system (+ALE!) by link below.

desert-multifunction-1

Codan Envoy™ uses the latest software-defined architecture, which means you can download and upgrade new capabilities through software – (The Amateur radio operators have already familiar with this!) – Using Codan’s advanced digital vocoder option, voice clarity in high noise environments now provides even more dependability when it really counts in the field.

alenetwork

The Envoy’s Codan Automated Link Management (CALM™) feature uses its in-builtin intelligence to determine the most efficient frequency. The high frequency radio bounces off the inonosfere, travelling  some 1000 km (750 miles), and lands on a remote HF site located just outside site the place of use, which is equipped with an Envoy RF unit that is IP capable and wireless-network can get your message (ALE call and GPS coordinates!) to anywhere in the world. !! CALM™ provides a dramatic improvement over conventional ALE or Selcalls systems

FlexRadio Systems the SmartSDR Ver. 1.2.1 is available on time !

FlexRadio: The SmartSDR v1.2.1 for both the FLEX-6500 and FLEX-6700 contains a wealth of new features which are over and above those promised in the develpment roadmap! See the link to enhanced support, User Guide and pictures below. 

Flex-6700_rear

The new features we are releasing with SmartSDR v1.2.1: High Resolution Waterfall/Panafall display with Waterfall Memory. Tracking Notch FilterTM (TNF) and Synchronous AM (SAM). Quick Record/Playback and Downward Expander Control – See below a partial list of the new features.

SmartSDR_liveselect

Variable Precision: the waterfall adjusts both the sampling rate and the bin size – Waterfall Memory: allows you to freeze the waterfall at any point and scroll back in time – Optimized Network Bandwidth: the waterfall consumes a fraction of the network bandwidth for field for full networking – Fully Synchronized Panafall: the waterfall shifts as you tune or zoom to stay lined up with your current panadapter settings – Advanced Gain and Black Level Controls: so if you see a signal in the noise and you want to give it some more detail, you can adjust the waterfall until the signal sticks out of the noise and manual tweaking of the waterfall colors
