Galway Radio Experimenters Club EI4GRC. 63.5 dB Programmable Digital Attenuator - IW7DMH - Ham Radio Station. Looking on Internet for a fixed RF attenuator I found a nice one based on the Peregrine PE43702 chip.

63.5 dB Programmable Digital Attenuator - IW7DMH - Ham Radio Station

From the datasheet I read the PE43702 is a HaRPTM-enhanced, high linearity, 7-bit RF Digital Step Attenuator (DSA). It covers a 31.75 dB attenuation range in 0.25 dB steps in the frequencies between 9 KHz - 4.0 GHz , has a 50 Ohm impedance and provides both a serial and parallel CMOS control interface. I immediately thought about a Arduino controlled device and decided to use two of them cascaded. The pictures below are taken from the online seller.

The breakout board provides a parallel dip-switch for manual usage. In my project I used the serial interface setting the attenuation level through code via the SPI protocol. To make things simpler my device provide a small rotary encoder and a display to change and view the attenuation level as shown in the schematic below. Before going on with the code it is important to understand the return loss response on the various frequencies. N.B. G7FEK antenna.

Notes: tinySA - NK7Z.NET

Overview: Having just purchased a tinySA, I went through the upgrade, and tools location process one does with every new piece of hardware. I thought it might be a good idea to document the steps I used to process this item into my lab, so I thoughts I’d make a few notes on setting up the tinySA for the next person… This is not a review, it is a few notes I might need later on to reinstall it from scratch, and I thought I might share them with you!

Obtain a standard 9 volt batterry. Use an alkaline battery for best life. (About 12 hours of intermittent use.) Using your thumb, slide back the battery compartment on the back. This may take some pressure. Tap the on/off switch. When you turn the unit on it enters the FREQ mode. Now tap the BAND button.The unit switches to the next of 5 bands. Radio Artisan – amateur radio journey. Home Page - Nomadic Research Labs. Common-mode chokes.

The following chart presents the results of impedance measurements made on a variety of common-mode choke implementations across the frequency range 1MHz to 30MHz.

Common-mode chokes

Amateur frequency allocations are indicated approximately by the vertical grey bands. The colours of the bars indicate the magnitude of the CM (common-mode) impedance; however, depending on the style of choke and the type of ferrite material used for the core, that impedance might be mostly Resistive, mostly Reactive, or somewhere in between. The black bars at the bottom of the coloured bars indicate the range of frequencies over which the choke impedance is predominantly Resistive - that is Rs>|Xs|. No black bars are shown for the air-cored chokes because their impedance is almost entirely Reactive apart from a very small band of frequencies around resonance.

Aim to choose a choke which has a high impedance and is Resistive over the frequency range of interest. Making It Up - Enjoying Radio and Maker Hobbies. UBC780XLT. Yaesu Home. Gallery – KM3KM Ham Radio Parts. 7100 Panadapter. © 2018-2020 by KV5R.

ARCO - Smart Antenna Rotator Controller

ARCO provides a lot of unique present day functions, not yet available in any other controller. Rotator motion is carefully controlled using auto-adapting, smoothly graduating/decaying speeds, reducing inertial stress, and prolonging lifetime of the rotator, antennas and tower. Built to last, built for security, built for total satisfaction! Have pleasure with new features, bringing your gear extra protection and longer life! ARCO is a completely self-contained stand alone rotator controller not requiring computer or any external device or power supply for setup and operation, while providing a wide selection of interfaces for remote control when necessary.

The shack and tower with antenna farm soon after construction The antennas after adding the KA2C 160/80 meters inverted vee with linear loading elements and tower-top band segment switch box – a 40 meters inverted vee is attached to the tower a few feet higher than the 160/80 antenna. Remote Control – KA2C. Remote Control of the radio shack is implemented using a local PC in the radio shack to control the FT950 rig and other key equipment and to provide an interface for 2-way audio over the Internet. The local PC is then remotely accessed by a remote PC using TeamViewer (free for personal use remote PC access application) over the open Internet. This method allows for good flexibility in configuring the system and gives you the power of an open PC in the radio shack which is then also available for general use in the shack.

The downsides are less control of latency and a requirement to setup and configure a number of PC programs. Many hams have setups for remote ham radio systems. Some prefer systems built specifically for remote ham radio operation. - Emergency Communication System, Emergency Radio, Emergency Response.

Matching with a ¼ wave or ½ wave coaxial cable is pretty well known, but an existing 1961 system to do that with two one-twelfth-wavelength transmission lines, has not yet become common practice in many countries. This article is intended as additional attention. The system is based on a complex formula L = [arctan(sqrt (B/(B ^ 2 + B +1)))]/(2.pi), B = Z1/Z2, that can be found on the Internet together with the associated graphics.

For the DIY builder the graph below is clearly enough to get started. The adjustment is quite wide-band and in principle coaxial length of one-twelfth wavelength should be sufficient, but according to the formula the matching is optimum if the length is calculated on the basis of the transformation ratio.

New quantum receiver the first to detect entire radio frequency spectrum. A new quantum sensor can analyze the full spectrum of radio frequency and real-world signals, unleashing new potentials for soldier communications, spectrum awareness and electronic warfare. Army researchers built the quantum sensor, which can sample the radio-frequency spectrum—from zero frequency up to 20 GHz—and detect AM and FM radio, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and other communication signals. The Rydberg sensor uses laser beams to create highly-excited Rydberg atoms directly above a microwave circuit, to boost and hone in on the portion of the spectrum being measured. Projects. Index.
