Re: [softrock40] All band SoftRock Rx
- Yes, essentially that is correct ......but I want self contained and battery operated, manual dial tuning, an LCD frequency display, 1.8Mhz to 55Mhz capability, manual band selection so I can try sub-harmonic frequencies (including bypass), and just have an I/Q output for ANY hardware which will accept an I/Q signal; computer sound card, SDR2GO, STM32F4, other DSP units, etc.I'll start drilling aluminum this afternoon, film at ?? Plus, I want to use some of that older SoftRock hardware laying around here.73 Kees K5BCQ

This might be neat to try. Take a SoftRock Lite+Xtal V8.3 (or similar), interface to the Si570 via I2C with a Si570 Controller. Use one of Dave's, WB6DHW, all band BPFs and presto .....you have an all band HF continuous coverage Receiver which does not require various plug-ins and has an I/Q output. Use either the high order memory digit on the Si570 Controller for BPF band selection or a simple PB switch.
Would make a cool continuous coverage Rx.
Maybe someone has already done this ?
