Re: Si570 for 160 meters?
- The SI570 CMOS will oscillate from 3500 Khz to 160 Mhz... Used with
our x2 LO Mixer coverage can be obtained from about 1.750 Mhz up to
just below 80 Mhz.
Thanks to Guido PE1NZZ for modifying PowerSDR to support x2, x3 and
LF guys may insert a :16 divider and coverage extendd from 110 KHz to
5 Mhz, to cover 136, 182 and 500 Khz bands.
Watch out for IF breakthrough though from strong Utility stations on
22 Khz - 48 Khz.....
