My meter shows 10 Watts and I can here the signal on the moni and looking at WSPER, PSK and Ham spot I see no indication if I have any output. Jim KD9dog #WSPR

Hello Joe,
I have it transmitting to the antenna  now but have not received any response as of yet, I am not sure what I did but I was sent to a web site that helped me get the 991A set correctly and that seemed to do the trick. There are a lot of directions on DIY but this one was right now I have to see if I am getting past the antenna.
WEB Page is   https://www.radioclub-carc.com/resources/
Thank You

The relative strengths of the two mixes shows up when you plot their data on the same graph. It leads to the same false interpretation of antenna vertical plots that results from normalizing them so that their peak field strength is set to 0 dB.
See http://k9yc.com/AntennaPlanning.pdf

There are tutorials and applications notes on my website about the use of ferrite common mode chokes at HF. A digested version of this material was added to the ARRL Handbook about ten years ago. I'm currently working on updating it for the next edition to reflect recent (last four years) work.

locked Unattended operation #WSPR

Lee Barker
 

Ok, still new user here with a general question that I was asked and wasnt sure of the answer. The question was "if there is intent for the hardware to remain powered up 24x7 (or even remote operation) like for collecting WHISPER mode data on your station, how do you ensure there is some form  positive control of being able to power down if there is a failure resulting in the txcrv to continually txmit."

As I new user on an IC-7300, watching youtubes on WSPR mode using WSJT-X, I watched operators collecting WSPR mode data while physically being off at work during the day and not physically present at the home station. I have now done this myself once or twice, being away either at work or overnight while sleeping. I had watched WSJT-X in WHISPER mode while present for several hours beforehand, and had the transceiver set at very low power, never more than 5 Watts, and I was always conscious of weather conditions so that I wouldnt be leaving things on or antennas connected when lightning was possible. But I felt pretty comfortable not being physically on the "HALT" button. There are some other autonomous functions, like JS8Call networks that I now want to explore, and I am wondering how these autonomous modes are handled by other users so that risk of getting stuck in txmit is mitigated.

Appreciate any feedback.

Output from the rig is a balance between the PWR slider in WSJT-x

 

 

The windows speaker volume

 

And the digital gain (DT gain) on the FT-991a

 

 

I normally set the DT Gain by getting the volume and PWR settings where I want then, then watch the rig output power when it transmits,

 

If it is below the power set on the rig I slowly increase the DT until it matches, then back it off a fraction,

If it matches the power of the rig then I back t off a fraction until it just start to drease

 

I find the ALC level is about in the image below

 

That’s how I do it,  right or wrong it works for me

You need to go into the windows settings and select the RADIO's internal sound card as your speaker for receive and your  microphone for transmit.  SPEAKER and MICROPHONE have nothing whatsoever to do with the physical speaker or microphone on the radio or computer.  If you want, you can think of both as virtual as provided by the sound card inside the radio.  I do not have my 991A connected and I am not on the computer I use with it, but you should see the same USB Audio CODEC   you would if using a Signalink instead of the sound card in the radio.  DO NOT use the windows 10 Realtek speakers or the manufacturers audio

The Pi is connected to the 991A by a USB cable only.
I would try to avoid using the USB 3.0 connections for this.  I've noticed that they are a bit finicky.
Also you might want to ensure that you reboot the Pi after you've made the USB connections.  It's supposed to pick up the new connection, but I've seen issues with that as well.

Steve - N3SL
 

Just an idea as an "option" somewhere, as I know not everyone will want this:

When changing bands, clear the spectrum display.

Yes, I know I can do that by clicking the "controls" box, but then that brings up (or toggles) the controls.  I don't normally (ever?) play with the controls once set, so don't need to see them.  Sure a click - or double-click, isn't the most taxing task around, but just a suggestion/idea for consideration
