Hello Serge


Many times I said "the IQ+ don't decode" is the software who decodes, if you
are presenting just 20dB gain at the input of the IQ+ then you are not
following the specifications, you must have at least 24dB, regarding WSJT,
install WSJT10, I really don't understand why people insist WSJT7 decode
better, Joe already said that many times.

Peter & all GA

Just set up your rotor. Run to it good size shield wires. 80M is a long
length. Just measure the voltage at the end of the line with the rotor
hooked up & see if the voltage drops when you activate your rotor with a
load & adjust voltage accordingly. I do not know what is the current is when
rotor is activated but the controller should provide the required voltage &
available current at the rotor. 240 feet of cable is long cable but it
should work if a good size cable is used. There is I believe 4 wires 2 for
power & 2 for data.

This is of  interest to me because I am in the process of assembling an eme
station using the RAS with a ~80m cable run so I have searched the internet
(and the Moon-net archives back to 2012 so far) for information. While there
are significant differences in systems that experience problems/no problems
there is no single definitive source of information on 'the right way to do
