With the MkV and the Field,  you can change the filters, but the 8.215 MHz and the 455 kHz filters are always tied together. 

While it's true that filter combinations are limited when selected through the front panel, via CAT commands you can select any filter in either IF on the Mark V and Field.  You can accomplish that using K6SE's old MPFilters program, or you can get my Mark V program (free) which duplicates the MPFilters function and adds the ability to share the CAT interface between up to three programs.

AS SAID BEFORE WE NEED TO KEEP TO THE ORIGINAL TOPIC AND HOW YOU WRITE DOES NOT MAKE YOU IMPORTANT OR A DICK HEAD.
YOU ASSUME HOW I WRITE MAKES ME A DICK HEAD.
RADIO HAMS IN THE OLD DAYS HAD RESPECT FOR THEIR FELLOW HAMS AND DID NOT CALL NAMES WHEN THEY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TYPE OF PERSON YOU REALLY ARE.
PLEASE CONSIDER WHAT MY MOTHER SAID MANY YEARS AGO,
SHOW ME YOUR FRIENDS AND I WILL TELL YOU WHAT TYPE OF PERSON YOU MAY BECOME,
SO IF YOU RECOGNIZE DICK HEADS FROM A FEW WRITTEN WORDS YOU MAY NEED A BETTER CLASS OF FRIEND.

Maybe you are not. But, anybody using all caps has something wrong with them.

If the part that needs to be crimped is all metal (insert into the plastic housing later) you can usually solder it. ...

You really shouldn't solder connectors on foam dielectric cable.  Some connectors are a real pain in their solder versions (RG-58) and not worth the bother.  And, they're expensive.  Some really have no solder versions these days (RG-6) and the shield is usually aluminum anyway.  With some rare exceptions I crimp most everything these days.  Watch out for the center pin.  This is a more picky crimp and I find that many tools don't actually have the proper die to work with whatever brand of connector I happen to have.  Half the time I have to solder the center even if it was meant to be crimped.

Of course, for general ham work pretty much anything that connects will be acceptably functional.  Lab use I'm more careful.

DXE has now posted the NCC-2 User Manual, so the shipping date must be close.  I have one on pre-order to use with my beverages and Tx antenna.

Howard

Yeah I ordered

NCC-2
2 active antennae
1000ft DxEng RG-6 75ohm
2 pre-amplifier cards/one for each rx antenna
receiver guard card

So it should be a steerable virtually silent nullification process and yield super high performance receive. At least in my hopes.

I talked to them on the phone and (Rod) one of the guys stated that the NCC-2 is improved in many areas, one being the operator tuning process. Supposed to be less of an art and more of a simplified process of finding the appropriate null for the signal you want to focus on or noise you want to remove.

The power supply in the NCC-2 will supply the voltage to the active antennas thus eliminating the need for an external power supply. But I need to take a look at the manual again. I can't remember if the NCC-2 has an internal AC/DC power supply or if it uses your main shack supply i.e. your linear AC/DC converter or switcher.

Im gonna run my RX antennae out to about 350 foot from the shack which is just over a 1/2 160 wavelength, my lowest band. This should give me safe separation from my only transmitting antenna, my 1k foot loop. But then I will have the receiver guard which will make it 100% safe no matter the field strength.

Im excited but very reserved as this is my first phaser system ever. I probably should have started with MFJ 1026 but I was told go big or go home with phasing/nullification equipment. I chose the latter.

Please bear in mind the following points: 

#1  This is being made by the same team that brought you the DV4mini and DV4home.

#2  See #1.

COLIN:

I'm not saying who's right & who's wrong.

But if I see an ad with all capital letters; no punctuation; or run-on sentences I automatically move onto the next ad.

Unless the ad I'm looking at is for something like; an APR-5 or -6; an APR-14; or a complete and operational APR-9.

An ad offering something like the preceding would get a second, albeit, FAST look.

For a hobby that purportedly combines technology and communications and technology, many of our ads simply do not communicate!!!!!

Maybe that's our idea of communications has degenerated to "U R 599 PLS QSL"


Many years ago, my late mother said something to me truly memorable:

     "I DON'T GET MAD, I GET EVEN!"

The last time one of ChiTown's infamous "hood rats" tried to get me from the rear. he got my BendixKing PRC-127A in his mouth.  Broke both jaws and knocked-out seven teeth.

Oh yeah!  He did get 7 years in the State pen for his futile efforts.

Was the 'drawing of schematic diagrams' for the ham radio exams done in the 1960's rather than the 1970's? Are those available online?

Again, up to 68 million. Maybe you missed that (several times). And again, passing HR1301 because of OTARD uses the "I want mine b'cuze brother/sister got his/hers" argument. It didn't work when we were kids and it's not a reason in itself to approve HR1301.
Really?   I missed nothing.   You seem to have a comprehension problem. 

ALL 68 million people in HOAs now have an outside antenna thanks to the satellite companies saying to Congress: "please oh please change the rules for us."   ?

The question that I keep asking you, in which you have NEVER provided any answer to is: How many or those "68 million" HOA homes have an outside antenna thanks to the OTARD ruling? 

Hint: the answer is NOT "68 million."
I've always been ahead of others in the use of the English language.
Again, whatever the actual number of residents erecting outdoor TV antennas, approval (or not) of one piece of legislation is no reason for approval (or not) of another. AFAIK, it's not been brought up in Congress or even by ARRL. But, as if it is a valid point, you keep bringing it up.
Yes... MOST, but not ALL. And, like the OTARD-HR1301 argument above, it's not a reason in itself to approve HR1301..
The people who support the parity act already support it for various reasons.   Just because you don't like those reasons don't make them invalid.
I agree -- because I don't like those reasons don't make them invalid. They're invalid on their own.

Congrats to Tim and all others who had fun on RTTY this weekend. I'm relatively new to digital modes (less then two years) so I took advantage of the contest and worked a few new entities on RTTY: D6, KH0, KH2, 9V, VR and I think about 4 or 5 other not-so-rare European countries.  Grin
