I purchased and installed a Demi 2 meter transverter on my Flex 6300 a couple months ago. Everything worked fine until one morning I started SmartSDR and when I went to listen to 2 meters it was as if there was no antenna connected. No signals on the waterfall and couldn’t hear any of the repeaters I normally monitor. Also when I tried to key up the repeater, the TX which normally drops .6 mhz acted like it’s simplex without freq change.
The first thing I did was to connect the 2m antenna to another rig. Everything worked fine. Next I bypassed amp, etc. and ran the antenna directly into the transverter. No change. I haven’t tried swapping the bnc or RCA cables between the transverter and 6300 yet, however both were new only 2 months ago. All the setting in my XVTR config are as they were originally. I even deleted it and made a new one – no help.
I did a factory restore on the 6300 and no change.
Running SmartSDR v2.49. Running remote or local exhibits the same problem.
Has anyone experienced anything like this?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
