Hidee ho everyone. Well I'm trying to get my RigExpert hooked up to the TS590. Software loaded along with the DigiPan. Now when I go to configure and (Waterfall drive) I get a message saying 'There is a problem with your sound hardware" Along with that there isn't any recieve at all.
When I go to my Device Manager the Ports(com&lpt) I have the exclamation mark on Communications port (com9) "Windows cannot determine the settings for this device."
I have tried a few times to download the Version 9 cw trainer from G4FON All I get is Bandwidth Limit Exceeded Hopefully it will be fixed on his side. Would like to give it a try. Learned the code at 10wpm 30 years ago when I was trying to get my license. Didn't get it back then. Theory stumped me.
Of course over time I have forgotten the code and I need to reaquire it.
Thanks for the encuragement guys. Yes I plan on also putting up a verticle on the roof of my drive shed. It has a steel roof 40'x60'. Should work great for a ground plane. The peak is 21' high and with a tri-pod and mast I can get the verticle up to 25' to 28'.
A 20, 17. 15, 12, 10, 6 meter is what I'm thinking.
Hi all. A brief history. I tried getting my ham radio license back over 30 years ago. Now just a few months away from my 60th birthday I thought I better give it another go. Success and am now VA3KBC. So with my newly aquired and greatly appreciated license I am looking at antennas. I live on a farm and have two rows of tall ever green trees (pine trees) some reaching over 60 feet tall running parallel the drive way about 250' long.
I have purchased a G5RV 102' also Hy-Power 160 meter 268' dipole and a Hy-Power 40 66'.
The 268' is going to be a over the top at about 50' from 3 of the tallest pine trees. The 40 meter 66' is also going to be a horizontal between a couple of pine trees also around that 40 to 50 ' height.
Now my next plan is to put up a 574' horizontal delta loop horizontal antenna going from my 40'x60' drive shed over my house (where I plan to go with ladder line down to the shack 15, 20' below) heading east to the pine tree at 55' high (190') then going south west (190')to the old maple tree at about 35 to 40' high then north 190' back to the drive shed about 25' high.
With everything I have read loops are pretty forgiving in their overall design. Round being the best, octagon, rectangle etc. Anything I should be aware of? I have a 4:1 Balun coming from Array Solutions as well. DXE-RR8B-HP remote switch and DXE-CC-8A control console. A Kenwood TS590 in the shack and a MFJ949E coming also.
Any suggestions will be welcome. Don VA3KBC (my 2 Daughters names and my wifes . Kristina, Barb, Carol)
