Setup Audio Soundcard Set audio output voltageMessage 1 of 4 , Feb 2View SourceFirst, make sure the bias is set properly on the PA.part 2 of the assembly manual, page 10Go into GSDR .. Setup > Audio > SoundcardSet audio output voltage to 1( unless you have already done the proper calibration, and measured the actual voltage... in that case, leave it alone)Make sure that your windows "speakers" level is at 100% ( at LEAST 75% ) and remember, this setting can bechanged by other programs, so remember to check it if you notice low output.Now where does the power output lie?If 6 or more watts, then you should be able to adjust it the rest of the way by using the Gain by band settingsSetup > PA SettingsAlso, I think you said you are new to SDR...?You need to make sure that you are not trying to transmit with VFOA and LOSC on the same frequency!Should be at least 5khz separation between the two.Even better...Go to GSDR Setup > Transmit.. check the box "TX IF Shift". make sure the IF shift value is 11000 ( default should be 11025 that is fine)This will ensure that the LOSC ( local oscillator ) shifts to a point that is 11,025hz from VFOa every time you transmit.See how far this gets you.Bruce
Well, the reason I'm asking to begin with is because I purchased a used G11 with the multi band board. I have been trying to read up on everything you have to do. But I have never done anything like this before, and I soak in things better when I view it like in a video then I do by reading. I'm sure once I learn everything it will be simple at that point. But I'm concerned because the G11 so far has only been able to output a couple watts on transmit. The receiver is receiving great, and I have been doing some of the calibration on the receive side. But I'm hoping I can find the calibration that will bring the wattage up to 10 watts where it's suppose to be. I have emailed the seller I received it from, but haven't received a reply back yet. Even if somebody had a low quality video showing everything, it would help me greatly. Thanks.
