Re: Hi Bands board problem

When selecting LogMag in the app it displays for S11 and S21 together, no other option. With the NanoVNA I can select LogMag for S21 which shows the same data as one of the graphs on the app.

Has anyone else tried tuning coils via the NanaoVNA yet for 10 meters?

Re: Hi Bands board problem

Manuel, You are correct, I thought I changed the display to LogMag, but did not. The below display is where I left off at 3 windings. The first dip is at 37.7 MHz and the second at 53.8 MHz. It really appears I may have to remove another winding, but not sure why. The windings are spread out as much...

Re: Hi Bands board problem

Another update, I have tweaked all the toroids and have achieved just under 5 watts on all bands with about 55% efficiency on all bands, but still no receive on 10M. I can hear band activity on all bands but 10M is dead. It's pretty simple actually, two coils plus one relay per band, it's kinda har...

Re: Hi Bands board problem

I recently got the hi board too and only installed the 10 meter coils and T1 and T2. I can transmit with a bit above 5 watts around 28.9 MHz, lower frequencies are a little less. I tried receiving on my OCFD which work great with my other 2 (tr)uSDX on the lo bands as built but I get no signals. Whe...

Yes, that curve is not right. Is it connected correctly and are you sure you are on 20 meters?

Re: Display off

I was measuring with an ammeter the absorption of the radio in reception, about 80 mA, and after a few interruptions of contacts, I kept the test leads between the battery and the power cable, the display turned off. The radio turns on but the display remains off. What could have happened, it is no...

Re: Careless error, help diagnosing after frying it?

Does the power look fine, but meter just reads wrong? If so, look for the thread where a couple of resistors were added, 1 M ohm I think.

Re: Ever changing serial number

I had a serial number that kept changing and it was the result of a bad bootloader installation. I ended up having to use a USBasp programmer to get the firmware loaded correctly.

Re: Transmits all modes except CW.

Do you hear a tone in CW when you press the PTT button? On my unit I do hear a tone if I push PTT in CW mode. Check with the vendor of the unit, they may be able to assist you with this issue.

That probably means the PTT line is shorted not enabling using it for Tx.
