A Diary of Technology Persuits

Moving the DXDUSB inside the DX Doubler

I have been using the DXDUSB as the interface for my DX Doublerfor a couple years now, and what I really wanted to do is to have a DX Doubler with the USB interface "built-in." Well, the idea of actually... Continue Reading →

Sure I Like SDR Technology. But I still Want a “Radio”

I have worked in an industry where we have been developing "digital radios" for many years. Many of the technologies that are finding their way into the great new fad we all call SDR (Software Defined Radios), are not new.... Continue Reading →

Time Out for the Virginia QSO Party

The VA QSO Party will take place next weekend, and I invite you to participate if you have the time and interest. We would love to see the number of participant increase this year. There has been a pretty good... Continue Reading →

RTTY Transmissions Off-freq with MMTTY

I participated in the NAQP RTTY contest this weekend. I normally use 2 radios in contests. In this one, I setup for RTTY and started the contest. Nobody could hear me with one radio (IC-7600) using an all-band dipole/doublet that... Continue Reading →

RTTY on the IC-7600 Using N1MM+ and MMTTY

I have been using the IC-7600 on RTTY with N1MM+ and the MMTTY application for a couple of years now. There are some good directions for this in the N1MM+ documentation, so I am not going to go through all... Continue Reading →

AntDecoder Proto Testing with 2X6 Switch

This weekend, I finally got a chance to assemble and test a prototype PC Board for the AntDecoder. The board and the software worked fine. The only issue is that I need to add output buffers to the Arduino lines... Continue Reading →

Trying a “Short” Beverage Antenna on 160m

I wanted to do something to improve my Station performance on 160m, so I thought a Receive Antenna would be the way to go. Everyone tells me that you need a decent RX Antenna for 160m, because you can not... Continue Reading →

Getting into the Game on 160 meters

I have slowly been adding 160 meter Band capability to my Station, mainly in some recent contests. With sunspots so low, and the high HF Bands suffering badly as a result, this seems like a good time to do some... Continue Reading →

AntDecoder Testing and Logic Levels

I have been asked about the progress of the AntDecoder project. I have been working with a prototype PC board along with a 2X6 Antenna switch. The antenna switch is a homebrew model made by Mike, K4GMH. Mike was kind... Continue Reading →
