  Serge My 62 years old Brain decode CW despite my IQ :-) Who needs a  MAP  to find the way to a QSO    LOL 73 Lars SM4IVE

 Thank you Alex for correcting me. Yes the IQ+ does not decode but MAP65 does. However for map65 to decode it requires signal from the IQ+ so it is really a  play on words. What I should have said is the following  The combination of the IQ+ & MAP65 does not decode as well as my 40 year old ICOM 275A & WSJT 7. I will try to do what you suggested regarding more gain at the input of the IQ+. Thank you Alex always a pleasure to hear from you Serge VE1KG

   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.   Regards   73 de Alex, ZS6EME     From: moon-net-bounces at mailman. pe1itr.com [mailto:moon-net-bounces@ mailman.pe1itr.com] On Behalf Of serge

 Subject: Re: [Moon-Net] SPIDs      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.   GL Peter   Serge VE1KG

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 it'.  From what I have read, the difference in the outcome for different stations appears to be affected by whether the RAS is HR (which appears much less noise immune), the motor cable size/resistance, power supply regulation, psu sharing between the controller and the motors, the model of the controller, the sensor cable construction and its screening/earthing. The degree of mechanical imbalance/inertia in the array will also affect the startup currents and thus the voltage drop and/or noise spike in the system. Anything I have fogotten? Maybe the firmware... What one station will 'get away with' is not always replicated by another with different system values, and the lack of a full set of parameters can leave a Spid user in the dark. Meanwhile, the information search turns up all sorts of useful stuff - and its fun!

   Some areas of interest pops up at an "even timesppread basis", and has almost the same content every time. Maybe creating an archive type of wiki would be a good plan?       But anyway, time for a repeat:  I am running approx 19V to my RAS/RAK rotators. Good cabling (of course shielded) and good power/cabling in the PS-line, No zeroing of directions at powr faults and no problem starting both az/el at the same time. No lost pulses. Be aware that the motor can take up to 10A in the startup spike, so starting both at the same time = could be up to 20A, if voltage drops too much = lost pulses.       73 de SM7SJR, Bjorn

I dont do ESP QSO`s i prefere to hear the station.
CW is still King!!!!
