Transceiver #1

  • Old Technology with a modern flare ~ Arduino Nano/Si5351
  • Two 3N209 Dual Gate MOSFETs are the complete IF Module
  • Bilateral Operation from SPRAT 128 and G4GXO
  • USB/LSB and Two VFO's (FT8/WSPR)
  • 9 MHz IF on the 40 Meter Band
  • 128X128 Color TFT Display
  • 5 Watts out with a IRF510
  • Re-use of many old transceiver assemblies/parts

Stay tuned for more exciting details. Work in Progress.

Check out the size of the rig as compared to the D104 Lollipop Microphone. Small is a good word!
