I & Q Access?
- I was looking over an older copy of the ARRL's handbook (2004) and came
across the plans for a Bi Auroral I & Q receiver. This receiver doesn't
do anything with the I & Q channels after mixing and just dumps them out
as audio. Apparently the listening experience is quite nice. It got me
thinking. If most rigs take the I & Q and mix it into DSP after the PLL
why not grab the I & Q channels after mixing with the PLL?
Anyone know the signal path of the 897 enough to tell me if I'm nuts and
don't know what I'm talking about?
