P3SVGA and 20 inch Display

Phil Hystad-3
I am considering finally getting the P3SVGA option for my P3.  I do have a 20 inch HDMI display supporting a variety of resolutions.  I plan to use with an SVGA to HDMI conversion cable.

So, I am wondering how the P3 TX Monitor display shows up on the SVGA display.  I assume either not at all or just like it does on my P3 window.  Or, maybe different.  For example, I use my P3 in the display mode that has the bar graphs showing PEP and SWR.  Are these supported on the SVGA controlled display?

It would be nice if there were some color images of the SVGA display showing actual signals that include the TX Monitor display information as well as TX and RX data decoding windows on the display.  Do any of those exist?

Thanks,

73, phil, K7PEH

TX Monitor does not appear on the external monitor. If I really need to
look at it I check the P3, otherwise I'm always checking the external
monitor. It's worth it even without the TX monitor display.

Dennis,

Thanks, so SVGA display has zero knowledge of the existence of the TX Monitor information (not the RF Envelope and not the TX PEP/SWR windows).

Was there any sort of statement from Elecraft on the non-support of SVGA of the TX Monitor?  If there was I most likely missed it.  If I remember, TX Monitor came after the advent of the SVGA option.

However, not big deal as, like you said, there is always the P3 to look at if needed.

73, phil

Hi Phil,


The details you missed are here:


http://www.elecraft.com/manual/P3%20Xmit%20Mon%20FAQ-ver-A-7.pdf 


The TX Monitor works great with the P3 display, no need for it to
be displayed on a large monitor. On the other hand, the other P3
displays benefit greatly from the SVGA option.

I use the P3 with a 32 inch monitor and the display is excellent. I wouldn't
be without it.

In reply to this post by Dennis Moore
Another benefit of the SVGA kit is that you can add an external keypad
to your K3 for triggering macros stored in the P3...

See:
https://www.nk7z.net/adding-external-keypad-k3/

I used this during the recent contest last weekend, and the only reason
I touched the radio was to tune it, or change the passband.  Pretty much
used the keypad for the entire contest.

Having 50 macros at the press of a key is a lot of fun in contests...

73s and thanks,
Dave
