Receiver measurements done earlier and described in previous post lead me to do some on air test.
When my 756P3 came on workbench to LNA modification, it was the time to test 7300 on EME signals.
Not digging deeper into RX architecture and differences, test show that both receivers performs well and 7300 without LNA is usefull for EME try, even with single antenna.
At the time I can't say 7300 is better than 756P3, because having both connected I can't see much difference.
IC-756P3 RX screen:
Maybe (only my subjective look) 756P3 with internal preamps is 1-2dBJT better at EME decodes.
IC-7300 RX screen:
On the other hand 7300 seems to be a little "quieter" at the same time - maybe because of (as per Icom adverisement ) extremely low RX phase noise.
At least I can say having 7300 as spare RIG for 6m is good idea.
Saturday bring quite a nice suprise and occassion to work rare wet square IP60WD after putting 4m antenna back on duty in the morning.
Beacuse of bad weather Martin GM6VXB stuck at his QRL /P on drilling Rig "Transocean Spitsbergen"
Growing interest in new mode MSK144 without installing WSJT-X lead me to write this short "HOWTO"
After installing MSHV we can see MSK144 mode checkbox is grey.
We will fix it now :-)
Assuming your MSHV instance
is installed in drive/partition D: on your PC we need to get into
"settings" folder - in my example it's D:\MSHV126\settings.
Look for the file as shown above.
Open it with Notepad and scroll down to get line "mod_identifaer=2"
Change the value from "2" to "0", and in the line below "auto_decode_all=MSK144=0" set value to "1"
Close the file saving changes.
There You are. After restart MSHV will let You operate MSK144.
Unfortunately there's no way to change it under running program, if You switch to FSK441 or any other mode, software will not let You back to MSK144.
Good idea is to use two separate instances of MSHV, with one configured only to MSK.
