Some 4o3a Antenna Genius (AG) Notes

  • With AG v 2.0 the DC power connector changed, perhaps to make room for the OM Module connector (OM Modules are an accessory relay board).  I own both v 1.0 and v 2.0 AG units. Here are pictures:

Version 1.0 Eurostyle Connector

Version 2.0 revised connector

  • The AG software benefits if you are methodical and do not presume the software logic to have all the usual “helpers” in consumer software. Example, when you configure an AG the selection of a FlexRadio Flex-6000 depends on not only highlighting the radio you want to connect to, but you have to hit the “<” to move the serial number into the configuration, and then select the “save & reboot” button. Not a problem, just a different style than one might expect.
  • I’ve not figured out how to run more than one AG at a time. Watch for a future blog post as I figure this issue out.
  • I’m still trying to figure out “free form” AG programming, as if I add an OM Module I’d like to use it for other station uses.
