Re: DATV-Express Project
Charles G4GUO has fixed one bug for PLUTO units with the v1.25LP10 software release. One user of the v1.25LP10 software (John G4BAO) discovered that there is a coding design problem with the LimeSDR-USB and LimeSDR-mini units. With LimeSDR-USB units, if frequency selected is <2.0 GHz, then then code did not select the correct output port and the RF power output was too low. With LimeSDR-mini units, if frequency selected is >2.0 GHz, then the code did not select the correct output port and the RF power output was too low. Charles has prepared a new v1.25LP11 of the software and Ken is getting ready to re-test at his lab and then prepare for this new release to be uploaded to the www.DATV-Express.com web-site.
Ken W6HHC has prepared a new Block Diagram that illustrates that the DATV-Express software now supports four different hardware boards.

Ken plans to update the DATV-Express User Guide to emphasize that DATV-Express has transitioned to become solely a software product for the future.
During September, Tom WB6P completed the gerber artwork for “Rev B” of the MiniTiouner-Express printed circuit board. The artwork and other PCB files have been sent to the PCB-house for fabrication. .
