Transverter support?

Postby DL8AAU » Mon Jun 10, 2013 12:14 pm

The board would make a very nice microwave IF - unfortunately one would need 144 or higher IF.
You wrote the other day on http://forums.qrz.com/showthread.php?35 ... aberry-SDR:
"My next project should be a better fit for transverter use."

Is this planned for the near future?

Maybe the SN74CBT3253 is fast enough for 6m or even 2m already?

The Peaberry V2 is an HF radio that supports up to 30MHz. The AMP jack can be used to key a transverter. This is the radio I was referring to in that post. I'm sorry if misled you into expecting a VHF/UHF design.

I sell these kits to make it easy for folks to get started with homebrew SDR. It sounds like you need a more advanced platform and think I have a good starting point so feel free to hack on it and make exactly the radio you want. The firmware is open source so you'll be able to share your results with others.

Hi David,

got it - that makes sense. I will definitely order one the next days.
I guess the easiest will be to use the Miniverter-F http://www.w1ghz.org/new/Miniverter-F.pdf to convert to 144MHz.

I'll report on success...
