  • W4IOD-Odis : Everyone have a good evening and stay safe 73 de W4IOD SK
  • AI5AI-Don : Good Night everyone
  • K9EQ-Chris : When you're cramming bits like that the signal MUST be very linear. Hence the KPA500 is not very linear. Very poor performance, my 3-500Z amp has no problems.
  • rick_n4wcq : it works well with my K3 at 30-60w but if I try with an amp it faills apart. I guess my kpa500 is not very linear
  • K9EQ-Chris : That's shocking. You'd think Linux would be the primary OS for something like that.
  • AI5AI-Don : Thank you Rick
  • W4IOD-Odis : GE Rick
  • rick_n4wcq : setting up the sound card on linux for freedv is finicky
  • K9EQ-Chris : ...which is sent to the Mic input of an SSB radio. The signal is received by an SSB radio, then demodulated and decoded by FreeDV. FreeDV was built by an international team of Radio Amateurs working together on coding, design, user interface and testing. FreeDV is open source software
  • W4IOD-Odis : Don: There are reports of the new FreeDV 700D mode outperforming SSB at low SNR’s. Higher SNR’s FreeDV 1600 sounds like FM, with no analog HF radio noise. You can buy a SM1000 FreeDV adaptor that allows you to run FreeDV (1600 mode) on any HF radio without a PC or sound card. Speech is compressed down to 700-1600 bit/s then modulated onto a 1.25 kHz wide signal comprised of 16 QPSK carriers
  • AI5AI-Don : Yepper!!!

  • KC9IL-Warren : 60 meters is a nice band. We want to keep the 100 watt limit.
  • KC9IL-Warren : Odis, thanks!
  • W4IOD-Odis : Warren, if you have time this may be of interest to you or not. https://youtu.be/9fR0C_wak-s?si=vVNAvLAv7p5u2BhF
  • KC9IL-Warren : I'll just have to play with it some more. Maybe it will grow on me. Thanks Colt!
  • N1RIP-Colt : Pi-zero 2 w* correction
  • N1RIP-Colt : Could have been grade/speed/quality of SD card. Card could be degrading as well @ KC9IL-Warren. My W0CHP install runs extremely fast on Pi 4 (4gb)
  • KC9IL-Warren : Chris, you make a good point. Here we are complaining about free software. Hi Hi
  • K9EQ-Chris : Well, Pistar doesn't have much documentation either. These are hobby projects so you can't expect too much. A lot can be learned by looking at the code.
  • KC9IL-Warren : Pi-Star just flies on my Pi-4. Very snappy. I did not even try on the Pi-0.
  • W4IOD-Odis : Warren with all things new there seems to be some growing pains. https://wpsd-docs.w0chp.net/
  • W4IOD-Odis : Warren I experienced that on the pi zero but not on the pi 3B+
  • KC9IL-Warren : The online documentation is lacking, in that it assumes you know a bunch of stuff already. Not nearly as comprehensive as the "Playing with Pi-Star" document.
  • KC9IL-Warren : Odis, the W0CHP version took about 50% longer to do most tasks. Seems a bit clunky.
  • KF5NXR - John : Interesting I didn't realize that it could be purchased separately as an accessory. I will need find out how to order that. Thanks for the info!
  • K9EQ-Chris : There are probably a bunch of DR2-X owners who are not using their LAN cards.
  • KK4FWU-Phil : disconnected myself
  • K9EQ-Chris : Although you might want to buy a used one. When purchased with a repeater, they're $200. If purchased as an accessory, I believe it's $350.
  • K9EQ-Chris : You can order the LAN card from Yaesu and you'd install it.
  • KF5NXR - John : I dont have a radio this evening to transmit into the net so I figured I would asked you through this chat.
  • KF5NXR - John : Odis, any idea if Yeasu would update a DR-2X that needs a Lan Card or where one could get a Lan Card to update one?
  • W4IOD-Odis : Most welcome
  • KF5NXR - John : Thank Odis!

  • KF5NXR - John : Good to know! Our local repeater has both YSF and FCS paths to them, but those trying to come in via FCS over the past couple of weeks have had issues. We might need to make the same decision about pulling the FCS path.
  • W4IOD-Odis : YSF has the advantage over FCS because the reflectors are not centrally located like FCS. MNWIS used to be connected to an FCS reflector but it was dropped in favor of the YSF.
  • KF5NXR - John : Speaking of YSF, it seems that FCS has been on the struggle bus the past couple of weeks, especially FCS server 3 based out of Canada.
  • KF5NXR - John : Roger roger Odis!
  • W4IOD-Odis : Your right the computer itself does not care
  • W4IOD-Odis : John, I have to look at the BIG picture there are more connected on the YSF side right now than there are WiresX connection so that's why I mentioned that last week.
  • KF5NXR - John : Completely agree Odis as far as your WiFi nic card on your computer, however, the application on your computer doesn't care nor know what freq your wifi is connected at, is what I commenting at.
  • W4IOD-Odis : BTW John looking at your comment from last week on wifi....yes it will make a difference on hotspots as most operate on 2.4G ONLY so if your trying to connect to a YSF reflector that could be an issue.
  • W4IOD-Odis : HowDEE John
  • KF5NXR - John : Good Evening from Texas!
  • W4IOD-Odis : Good evening all 9/18/2023
  • W4IOD-Odis : Everyone have a good evening and stay safe 73 de W4IOD SK
  • KF5NXR - John : Short of the operating freq of your wifi card on your laptop.
  • KF5NXR - John : The freq of your wifi shouldn't have anything to do with the programs on your laptop. ie Wire X's etc.
  • K9EQ-Chris : Hello
  • W4IOD-Odis : Hello John
  • W4IOD-Odis : Good evening all 9/11/2023
