Completed TXRX Ensemble Pics
- I have completed a TXRX Ensemble on 20-30-40. Here's a few pictures.
Build1.jpg shows my bench waiting on the kit arrival. Build2.jpg
shows the usefulness of a digital camera to double check coils. Even
the fattest fingers can hold the smallest toroids and pull them tight
using the three-finger technique shown. That's the new Extech LCR200
testing its very coil. It really does measure down to 0.001uH, that
coil was incredibly lucky. Build3.jpg shows off the finished project
with its EMU 0204 (AK5385).
Thanks to everyone who contributed circuits, programmed ICs, counted
millions of parts, and supported those of us just getting started!

> Is it recommended for a beginner like me to start with a PC sound card
(Creative and the like, 192Khz) and then consider the 0202/0204?
It is impossible to recommend for a beginner.
Really you must go through the process of learning and decide what is best
for your purpose.
Many say they do not need 192KHz, or even 96KHz, 48KHz is perfectly
Others have the opposite view and want even more than 192KHz!
Then for ultimate performance there are two purpose-built "soundcard"
interfaces designed for SDR. Soundcards are designed for audio, use with SDR
is a compromise.
Build your Ensemble, use whatever sound system you have. Then decide.
