Jay,

I don't know if that's a Microsoft problem on and HP laptop
problem. I run Windows XP on a Dell desktop and have never had
such a problem.

When running ANY PSK program on my HP Windows XP
laptop, I find that I must
shut the rig off before I can exit the PSK program. The
voltage at the com
port goes Positive whenever I close the program first,
thereby keying the
transmitter. Anyone know of a fix from Microsoft? I
hear there is one but
haven't been able to locate it. Any help is
appreciated. PS, no problem when
running Windows 98.

PSK Thesis

Duncan <zl3jt@...>
 

de Jungle Telegraph
I have no problems with anybody using my 'PSK Thesis' to assist someone with setting
up their Stations to operate in PSK31 mode. I would prefer that it not be amended.
I take no responsibility for errors any person may make, and bear in mind my experience
is limited only to my equipment, and the software I have in my equipment.
Maybe some others have different ideas and experiences, or different ways of doing
things.

Soundcards

Duncan <zl3jt@...>
 

de Jungle Telegraph
There will be differences between soundcards. Even from the same manufacturer. This
anomally is inherent in mass production. There are 'tolerances' laid down by the
designers, and if a component is within the tolerances of fit or performance then
it released for incorportion in the machinery.
In transceivers there are tolerances, and that is why each is 'different'. Most are
very good, but every now and then someone gets the 'lemon'! It is a fact of life.

Two identical machines can never be exactly the same because of the 'tolerances'
allowed in the manufacturing process of every component.
An Astronaut in the Apollo Moon landing project 40 years ago made an observation
that they were in space, going to the Moon, in a machine of several million components
all supplied by the lowest Tenderer.....
Think about it!
To operate PSK31 we all have to use a soundcard of at least '16 bit' complexity.
I cannot see the point in telling that to another operator during PSK QSOs....?
By the way, it's no use asking me Technical Computer questions. I just operate the
bloody thing, and get it wrong a few times too!
When it all goes wrong, I know how to 'reboot' it, (whatever the indicates), and
start again....
See ya in the ether! 73s

Thanks, Duncan...
 
I took a look at the document while on-line, but saved it and will read it more thoroughly after I get off.  It looks like something that a lot of folks should read.  Sometimes all of our signals get a little "wide" in the excitement of things.  I have learned to look at the ALC meter and reduce things so that I have no more than 20-25 watts out and no ALC indication.  That seems to help.  At least I've not had any complaints about my on screen waterfall at the other end.

Hi Jay!
Nope! If you study the pictures carefully, even though the traces are very red, you
can see that the signals are way out past the 'twin carrier lines'. This is definitely
the fault of the transmission, not the reception. I have seen this on a lot of signals,
not anywhere near that strong.
Such signals utterly destroy the chance of working weak signals on the frequency!

I have written a little 'thesis' This is attached in MS Word as a Text document.

Unfortunately... Ludek has right...

Zoltan Bordas <borzol@...>
 

Ludik's pictures appear to be taken off the screen of DigiPan, or a very
similar program. I have used DigiPan since the very beginning, and yes,
turning down the gain (waterfall drive), will take the red out, but it
WILL
NOT narrow a signal that is being overdriven by the sender. If more
operators
would read the manuals or information that comes with their programs, and
if
they heed what they read, we would not see such WIDE BAND signals on PSK.
A
simple look at the ALC meter, or perhaps a response to someone suggesting
they turn down the audio from the computer, would eliminate these crummy
signals. I give Ludik a four star rating for his efforts to bring this
problem to the forefront. best 73 to all from
KA3X, Jay (070 club)
... and agree 100% with Jay...

I attach 3 snapshots taken yesterday evening:
1. a normal input level setup
2. a strongly overdriven input
3. a more higher signal at the input of the soundcard

It is noticeable that the spectrum in the waterfall is NOT the same as
Ludek's snapshot. My input is clearly overdriven, but other signals are
readable, and Ludek's signal is very wide destroying the whole band and
superimposing on other signals making the copy impossible. You cannot make
any further improvement to work near such a "trace". I see many times
signals like that, and yes, a little more knowledge about the theory of this
mode and more attention can make life much pleasant...

Since it seems a number of stations get special callsigns for use in

for this contest!

I wonder how to get a temporary name assigned ...... :-)

Ludik, it looks like (to me at least) that you have your receiver gain turned up way too high.  Back off the gain.
