Wow my SDR on 40m is up and running.(Softrock receiver) Where can I get a receiver kit http://www.giga.co.za
Here is the details
Here is the link to to the webSDR server http://zr6aic.giga.co.za:8901/
I will use my default Ubuntu sound card that could only sample 96Khz but will be looking for a internal or external sound card that would be able to sample 192khz/24 to replace the 96Khz card to give me bettor bandwidth on 40m.
Here is some pictures during the construction and testing process.
|Sort all your components and measure and label them before you start assembly|
|Check the numbers on the Capacitors carefully|
|I used Solder paste to put on the surface mount components before I placed them on the board|
|Her is the PCB with solder paste on IC Pads|
|Softrock lite II testing the local oscillator divider on 40m.|
|28,22 Mhz (40m) Mixer I and Q input signals on scope.|
|Testing your Local oscillator as in assembly document|
|Testing the Oscillator|
|Wounding the inductors. (Keeping track of the amount of wounding is important)|
|Following the test on the assembly instructions|
|And some more test|
I am still waiting for some toroid rings to complete the Softrock kit but decided to expose my Funcube on the satellite part of the 2M band in the mean time.
I now have two softrock receivers on webSDR receiver (80,40,30,20M bands)
