v6 exciter docs uploaded
- Good Evening,
I have now uploaded the schematics and bill of materials for the two
boards that make up the v6 exciter that goes with the v6 SoftRock.
The files are in a v6 exciter docs folder within the SoftRock v6.0
docs folder. Still needed for prototype builders is a "road map" of
the exciter board to identify a number of components where there was
not room on the board for silkscreen printed designators.
The v6 exciter design is based on the circuit desgn work and
breadboard testing done by Jan (G0BBL), Alan (M0PUB) and John
(G8BTR). Their interest and efforts have made possible a fairly
quick transistion from initial design ideas to a working prototype
v6 exciter. As with the v6 SoftRock, every effort will be made to
provide an exciter kit at a low purchase price as soon as it is
determined the desing is ready for kit production. In addition to
the hardware design team, Bill, KD5TFD, has provide software support
with modified versions of PowerSDR for SSB transmission and soon CW.
Many thanks to the hardware design team and to Bill for moving the
project forward in a good way.
