Hi all, I am leaving home for a week now so I will not respond to any comment now. Maybe not after I get home either because my mailbox may become flooded with junk. I have added suggested changes to the parameters Roger sent. > First FFT bandwidth (Hz) [83] > First FFT window (power of sin) [2] > First forward FFT version [0] //change to 5 (much faster) > First FFT storage time (s) [1] //change to 10 (unless you have small memory. Allows longer averaging times) > First FFT amplitude [1000] > Enable second FFT [1] > First backward FFT version [0] // 1 is much faster, but with Linrad-01.26 there will be advantages of using floating point Linrad-01.25 and earlier best use 1 here. > Sellim maxlevel [6000] > First backward FFT att. N [6] > Second FFT bandwidth factor in powers of 2 [2] //change to 0 or 1. Typicaly no need for narrow filtering in waterfalls for SSB > Second FFT window (power of sin) [0] //change to 2. Gives better filters. > Second forward FFT version [0] // 2 is much faster, but with Linrad-01.26 there will be advantages of using floating point Linrad-01.25 and earlier best use 2 here. > Second forward FFT att. N [7] > Second FFT storage time (s) [5] > Enable AFC/SPUR/DECODE [1] // Use 1 here only if you actually want to use spur removal. AFC should not be used for SSB so make the window small and make it inactive on screen. > AFC lock range Hz [150] > AFC max drift Hz/minute [100] > Enable Morse decoding [0] > Max no of spurs to cancel [100] > Spur timeconstant (0.1sek) [5] > First mixer bandwidth reduction in powers of 2 [4] > First mixer no of channels [1] > Baseband storage time (s) [200] //!!! Use much smaller time here. At high bandwidth this would require very much memory. Many arrays are allocated in the baseband for CW decoding. They are useless in ssb mode but I have not removed memory allocation in ssb mode yet. In cw with a bandwidth of 50Hz or less, the sampling speed is very low and this is no problem. > Output delay margin (0.1sek) [5] //maybe you can make this smaller. Check the margin with 'T' > Output sampling speed (Hz) [10000] > Default output mode [1] > Audio expander exponent [3] > A/D speed [96000] > Check [1110107] > > Change only between brackets. > If file has errors, Linrad will ignore file and prompt > for a complete set of new parameters > > linrad-01.21 > > -----end of SSB parameters > > > Here are my wcw parameters: > > First FFT bandwidth (Hz) [100] > First FFT window (power of sin) [3] > First forward FFT version [2] //as above > First FFT storage time (s) [20] > First FFT amplitude [1000] > Enable second FFT [1] > First backward FFT version [1] > Sellim maxlevel [6000] > First backward FFT att.
