SoftRock v5.0 new schematic posted
- Good Morning All,
I have posted a new schematic with a table started on the schematic
page to include band-specific component values.
The first example of the v5.0 SoftRock is playing nicely on 40
meters. Uncorrected I/Q gain balance is within 8% and phase balance
is about 3 degrees. Rocky does a great job of tuning out the gain
and phase imbalance. The v5.0 sensitivity is a little less than the
v4.0 but the MDS is still on the order of -130dBm.
I will be building another v5.0 this week to try operation on 20
Sorry, my digital camera has stopped working properly so I can't
post any pictures of the two board stack.
I will be mailing out the v5.0 kits to alpha testers this week with
several going out today. E-mails will be sent to individual alpha
testers when I am ready to send each kit.
