Xiegu X6100 Battery Charging Questions and Answers
One of the Radioddity customers posed these well-thought-out questions about the Xiegu X6100 battery charging system and procedures. These are important issues that every X6100 owner should be aware of. 1. Can the X6100 be left connected permanently to an external charger or external source of dc power with the charger turned off? Yes, it can be left connected. The Green LED will show activity if the Charger has not been toggled Off in the Radio Setting1 Menu. 2. Can or should the X6100 be operated from an external power source with the charger turned off? Yes, as long as the Charger is toggled off in the Radio Setting 1 Menu, there is no problem running from an external power source. (13.8 VDC @ 3.4 Amps or above current capacity). The radio will operate from 9 to 15 VDC with current capacity requirements increased at a lower voltage than 13.8 VDC and reduced above 13.8VDC up to 15 VDC. 3. When should the charger be turned off? The Charger should be used with the radio powered off. The Battery Management System (BMS) will start with a constant current charge that is indicated by a flashing Green LED. When the current demand from the battery tapers down to a steady low current set point, the charge state shifts to Constant Voltage for the 'finishing charge'. During this charging state, the Green LED will glow constantly. It is during this charging state that the 2 cells should be balanced-charged to their maximum of 4.2 VDC. The LED (in theory) should turn off when this state is completed, but there may be a conflict between the actual indicator of the completed charge and the LED Staying on to remind that the charger is still connected. I would recommend charging overnight, then toggling the charger back off in the System Setting1 Menu. 4. When should the charger be turned on? The BMS will monitor battery capacity and voltage. It has voltage set points to first disable transmit capability and a 2nd set point to power the radio down to prevent the battery from being discharged below the point it can properly accept a charge. At this point, the charger should be enabled. During the first 4 charge /discharge cycles, you should charge fully and let the radio discharge the battery until the BMS shuts it down. After that, the battery has been 'built' to its rated current capacity and is more tolerant to partial charge cycles to top off a charge before the radio BMS shuts it down. The battery has a projected set number of charge/discharge cycles, so partial charging should be avoided if possible. 5. Does operating X6100 from an external power source with charger turned off affect the internal batteries of the X6100? There should be no effect on the battery when the charger is off as indicated by the lack of the Green LED activity. I have not tried to generate a test setup to check for any current draw in milliamps or microamps to confirm this. There is no heat felt when the charger is off, and the radio remains connected to an external power source. 6. When operating the X6100 from an external power source to boost the output wattage should the charger be turned on or off? The Charger should always be turned off when the radio is being operated; even for receive only. When the battery is under load, the BMS cannot sense a reduction in current demand. If used un-squelched, or for transmitting, the BMS only senses a rise in the current demand. This can cause excessive heat when the heat from the Power Amplifier (PA) components internal to the radio is combined with heat from the BMS circuit / Battery pack combination. The radio uses Passive Cooling (no cooling fan). The surface area of the outer case can dissipate heat from normal operations. Constant, or near constant carrier modes like FT8 (or other digital sound card modes), as well as CW and RTTY, place a higher demand on the PA section of the radio. The by-product is heating. Add the additional heat build-up from the charger circuit and the heat can become excessive. Combine this further with working in direct or near direct sunlight and the radio may shut down.

What is HF radio?
  What is HF radio? Known as the decameter band or decameter wave, high frequency (HF) is the ITU designation[1] for the range of radio frequency electromagnetic waves (radio waves) between 3 and 30 megahertz (MHz). The HF band is a major part of the shortwave band of frequencies, so communication at these frequencies is often called shortwave radio. Because radio waves in this band can be reflected back to Earth by the ionosphere layer in the atmosphere – a method known as "skip" or "skywave" propagation – these frequencies are suitable for long-distance communication across intercontinental distances. The band is used by international shortwave broadcasting stations (2.310 - 25.820 MHz), aviation communication, government time stations, weather stations, amateur radio and citizens band services, among other uses. Different from VHF (Very High Frequency - 30MHz-300MHz) and UHF (Ultra High Frequency - 300MHz-3GHz) radios, HF radios cover far greater distances thanks to ionospheric refraction – but the HF radio signals are prone to distortion by atmospheric conditions such as geomagnetic storms or solar flares that radio users cannot control. HF communications are best suited for long distance communication between ground operators and base stations. Some HF radios cover HF band only, like the Xiegu G90, Xiegu X6100; Some cover more, like the Radioddity QR20 which is a full-band SDR with HF, VHF, UHF bands.   What about VHF/UHF radios? VHF radio waves operate in a band between 30-300 megahertz, while UHF radio signals are propagated within 300 megahertz and 3 gigahertz. These radio waves travel over line of sight, making them ideal for local communications over a few kilometres. Indeed, VHF radio waves normally travel within line of sight along the Earth’s surface. Common uses for VHF are FM radio broadcasting, television broadcasting, two way land mobile radio systems (emergency, business, private use and military), long range data communication up to several tens of kilometres with radio modems, amateur radio, and marine communications. Air traffic control communications and air navigation systems (e.g. VOR, DME & ILS) work at distances of 100 kilometres or more to aircraft at cruising altitude. VHF was used for analog television stations in the US, and continues to be used for digital television. UHF radio waves propagate mainly by line of sight; they are blocked by hills and large buildings although the transmission through building walls is strong enough for indoor reception. One of the biggest pros of UHF radios is that they do a much better job of penetrating barriers in urban locations, like concrete, steel, and wood. So this kind of radio is best suited for use indoors, including buildings with multiple floors, in industries such as manufacturing, distribution, education, retail, hospitality, and healthcare. They also work well for businesses that function in both indoor and outdoor settings, where there are a lot of surrounding buildings. Nowadays, some radios are capable of transmitting on both VHF & UHF bands, like Radioddity GS-5B, making it meet more outdoor and indoor activities requirements. There are also some dual-band radios featuring 10W high power like Radioddity GA-510, supporting a longer range of communication.   US Amateur Radio Bands Reference - SOUCE

How to connect X6100 to XPA125B Amplifier?

X6100_TO_XPA125B.png

X6100 can expand the output power to 100W when connected to the XPA125B power amplifier through a L4001 cable (not included).

After connection, X6100 can automatically control the band switching of XPA125B. At the same time, ALC control will be established between the two machines. When the power output from X6100 to XPA125B exceeds the limit, it will be automatically reduced, so that the output power of XPA125B is constant at about 100W.

We recommend you set the output power of X6100 to ≤2.5W to protect the power amplifier equipment.
