I have tried version 0.8.0 of EESDR3 on Linux with my SunSDR2 plus.
It works fine! With JTDX 157 alpha the TCI connection for CAT and audio also works well. :so_happy:
* The B.M menu can now be used to enable the PA function, but that doesn't seem to work yet. The PA output is still not activated.
* What I still urgently miss is the button "RX-ANT", so that I can get a quick overview of the bands with my active antenna.
* I hope that there will be again the function "Tune without PA", because I always have to tune my antenna on all bands first.
Thanks for your work on this great new software. :good:

Hi ExpertSdr3 users and all

i have the same problem (no ptt out to switch on the amplifier) with Sunsdr2 Pro on Windows 10
Maybe i have missed something to do that on the BM Menu ?

The receive audio quality seems very good.

Otherwise, I have tried the remote ERS 2021, i can see and connect my Sunsdr2 Pro but no signal on the waterfall, maybe it''s normal for this alpha ?

Thanks also for your work on this great new software.

I have installed ver 3 onto my PC.

The RX does a great job. Impressive performance indeed.
  • Looks like one is able to transmit. But no power output when doing tune. Noting happens when raising the tune level....
  • Cannot seem to select the mike to use for SSB.
  • There seems not to be a way to select antenna connector to use on my SunSDR2 DX
Where can I find the users manual for the software??

I can also select MIC. But that Is of no help as the software does not recognize the sognals from the selected microphone in the PC ( Win 10 ).

The most annoying is that there is no docs whatsoever.
Also..... Why can one not select antenna??

I would love to support with bug reports. But before I highlight odd behaviour , I want to know how things should play.

If you click on B.M you select the antenna for TX and RX

I know that you can assign the antennas in the B.M menu. But there you have to do it for each individual band. To get an overview of the activities on all bands, this is highly impractical.

Just verifying but I don't think VAC/MicPC has been implemented yet.

I just discovered today that Mic2 works, so once I switched over to using that, I have been on the air with the 0.8.1 update. All looks pretty good so far.

The NR seems to have been improved quite a lot in default settings, very good and useful.

The audio settings for Proc are important to me and I very much like the feel of the new TX EQ settings

Wishes
1) VAC support enabled

2) Indicators for the User bandpass filters so I can see the values they are set to. They work but I can't see the Hz for high and low pass settings.

3) RX EQ (probably just not implemented yet)

4) SQL added

5) This release it seems to have some limiting if you overdrive the mic gain but the meter doesn't really reflect it and I had to monitor myself to find where the audio has tearing in it to figure out where to set the Mic2 input level. I would very much like some sort of indicator, even just a red "light" to show when you are hitting 0db on peak levels vs the avg reading meter.

6) I would like to be able to adjust the thresholds and speed of the waterfall or have the waterfall follow the dynamics of the adjustments on the spectrum for min/max ranges.

7) minor cosmetic options like waterfall palette (I actually like the defaults) or a spectrum fill color....these are minor, I like the defaults a lot. I also like the averaging/refresh of the spectrum as well, very useful default. Even just a single "slow" mode for the waterfall would be good. I like a 15s capture from top to bottom on my waterfall as I use it to find the "history" of transmission in SSB across the spectrum quite often.

I have just tested the E-coder in the latest ESDR3 and have found that the settings in E-coder is not persistent.

I can define buttons in the usual way and they are working as long as I keep the settings window open.
When closing the window the E-coder reverts to blank button settings.
I am also missing the audio volume setting on a knob. I am normally using Drive-RF gain (now AGC) and Audio volume on the three rotatable knobs.

Hello, Good morning OM's,

I can modulate the transmitter in SSB but the Equalizer,Compressor,Clipper,Filter does not work when switched on. It transmits with some default frequency response/setting.
I have also tried leaving the two firmwares ESDR2 Update 8 or 9.

It works, actually only the setting of the microphone gain works conditionally. TRX MB1

Hello Joseph,
Of course I have selected the correct microphone input. I use the microphone input 2. Maybe that is the problem, I would have to use the original microphone on input 1.

73` Thank you
