You can use a microphone connected to either the PC or the ANAN hardware. In the DSP panel select the microphone, the entry ✶ Microphone on Radio ✶ selects the microphone connected to the ANAN hardware. The Spectrum window in the DSP panel shows the microphone output after the gain and processing (if selected) are applied.
Adjust the gain/proc and master gain/proc (see common configuration) so that the ALC value peaks somewhere between 100 and 150. The ALC value is shown even when not in transmit.
Use the equaliser to adjust the frequency balance (see common configuration).
If you want to hear your own audio select a playback device from the dropdown list. Monitor output is normally used when transmitting. (CW sidetone is only heard through speakers connected to the ANAN radio.)
Select the desired mode - at present only LSB, USB and AM are available, but you can always send CW!
With the ALC peaking between 100 and 150 switch to transmit (use either VOX or press the TX button). Adjust the drive slider to set the output level. An alternate method is to use the tone generator (see common configuration) by selecting Tone - you are then transmitting a steady tone (or tones).
The Pure Signal approach is not yet supported by SDR Console, when available use this to ensure your signal is as clean as possible.
Define a list of bandpass filters, these are selected in the main transmit DSP panel.
The equaliser supports three methods to adjust the frequency balance:
Changes are applied immediately.
For each band there are master gain settings.
You do not need an expensive super-duper professional quality microphone. For development the TONOR Professional Singing Karaoke Vocal Dynamic Microphone is resulting in reports of very good quality audio. This typically costs less than $25 and comes with a 9.8ft (3m) cable!
To make a recording of the audio as sent to the transmitter click the recording button in the Input pane of the DSP panel. The recording is saved as a Windows Media Audio (WMA) file which you play with any Windows media application.
