8.2 LP-pan Power Cable
In order to reduce common mode injection,
it is better to use +12v available on rear panel of the radio
8.3 EMU-0202 to PC link
In order to optimise data transfer with PC don't use external USB Hub port,
internal ports or port on PCI board give much better transfer rate.
CWskimmer display number of decoders open.
This value depends on pileup size and tranfer rate,
this is a perfect tool to find the fastest USB port on your PC.
8.4 EMU-0202 Controls
In order to help CW-skimmer Gain/Phase corrector to do the best
keep EMU-02-02 input Right & Left level controls in same position at any time,
Because led monitoring sytem is only compatible with voice,
Most part of the time front panel green leds are Off,
when flashing, reduce gain.
When monitoring empty band, it seems to me, gain can be rised up
until the trace at minus offset from green arrow, ( offset value including sign )
disappear in the screen noise, green leds always Off.
The zero beat line is visible at -5800Hz on 455 unit, ( and +6000 on K3 standard version )
so it does not appear in pileups running up 5 to 10 KHz.
8.5 Final setup
Stacking equipments generate a thermal problem,
a small 80mm square fan was added right of 455 pack to void calorie accumulation.
