Try using the tone search function on the input frequency. Page 30 of the manual, I believe.

Tried an experiment.
Connected the FT100 + sound card interface + USB to serial interface, etc. to a computer running Windows 7 - problem disappears!
Then connected it to a laptop running Windows 8.1 - problem re-appears - keys PTT every 30 seconds again.
This appears to be a Windows 8 issue,
but will have to see whether changing interface or USB-serial adapter solves it.

This only proves there is a issue with driver your using with Win 8. I bad driver does not make a OS bad. With each revision of Windows MS makes code requirements more rigid meaning some sloppy code that might run on 7, will not run on 8. For many years MS was slow to raise standard and XP was very tolerant. Vista was a big step in compliance and 8 another. Big steps can cause software/driver issues for a while.

True, but I've learned a lesson - wait until everyone has sorted the bugs out before upgrading.
The driver I am using is by Prolific - though I guess the design requirements didn't include keying a transmitter.
I would like to know why the USB port is being polled every 30 seconds.
Whether its a driver issue or just part of the USB interface specification (though from a quick look at this I can't see it).

because it's grey, not green... (except for the trace)

Sometimes you should really stop and think some before you push the Post button. This is worse then running your generator in your garage. You are condoning bad practice. And you keep telling the younger you know better. Well how does jamming others show you know better? Actually it does not.

Clueless as usual. What else would you expect from a no code extra troll.....

LOL Well your wrong again. When I got my original ticket, there were still code tests. Which I passed...obviously.

By the way...why didn't you answer the questions? Cause you know your wrong on that too? LOL

As for the rest...What a clown!

The troll never sleeps

LOL too bad you can't be more original. You used that 1 already.

And you still never answered the questions. So in reality, who is the troll? Someone who bases his responses in fact, or some one who just posts funny pictures and never presents any facts to back what he says?

LOL Well at least I have you to laugh at since your just a clown! Keep em coming!

Nice sigs on 10/12/15 this morning.  QSOs on 12cw, 15ssb, 15rtty, 10ssb - all new band/mode slots.

Good luck!

I second that notion. I can't fault Eaton, as an ex-computer programmer I know that no matter how well you design, build and test, there will be bugs. Joe Fello has been great. I'm sure he and the other engineers over there are getting bombarded. I live in an apartment and I was extremely surprised that management consented to addressing these problems.

Perhaps if Ham Radio was as widespread as it was in the 60's, someone would have included it into the design and test. Today, no one knows what Ham Radio is. Even the technical guy who installed my replacement breakers had no idea what I was talking about. When I delayed the guy long enough to test the new breakers and sent out CW test bursts, he looked puzzled. He was probably getting ready to call Homeland Security. When I do run mobile in the park it always attracts the local constable.

If I were rich, I would buy a used ambulance, install a complete station in it, outfit it with some form of generator for the radio and heater and operate that way.

Happy New Year guys

Marc, WB2MSC

Well so much for them wanting to work the West Coast, 3 bands open to them and not on anyone of them.  Not whining, just making an observation.

It looks like bad data to me.

I have listed your 80, 20, 15, and 10 meter measurements with the gain in dB below each power level. From this data I suspect the input power, the output power, or both measurements have significant errors. Are you using the transceiver power setting as the input power? What power meter are you using for the ALS-500 output?


Band   10W   20W   30W   40W   60W   

10M   180   220   280   290   320   
        12.6  10.4  9.7    8.6    7.3

15M   130   200   210   240   280   
        11.1  10.0  7.0    7.8    6.7

20M   160   270   300   350   400   
        12.0  11.3  10.0   9.4   8.2

80M   145   280   360   420   500   
        11.6  11.5  10.7  10.2   9.2

I would be careful about changing the bias. I think the procedure to set the bias is by quiescent collector current. For example, if it is to be 1 amp per side with no RF applied, turn the two bias trimmers for minimum PS current then turn trimmer R409 an additional amp and then turn R410 for one more amp.

I think it is a wasted effort. For some reason some are now focused on IMD whose real world effect is somewhat over stated.  What will be next months bitch?
