Re: ND6T AGC implementation for uBIT-X
Gene Nitschke <genenitschke@...>
I must be doing something wrong as I could not find the files section of your web site.
I am looking at http://www.qsl.net/k5bcq/ But I do not find a files section.
I also looked at http://www.qsl.net/k5bcq/Kits/Kits.html to no avail.
Maybe I am using the wrong site?
Could you please send link out?

I just uploaded the current AGC and Click kit requests. This list is to help me asses demand so I can have the correct sets of parts ready. There does not appear to be much demand for boards only, just complete kits.
I'll post prices later, when I receive the boards and some testing is done.
I was looking into Don's ND6T Polite Antenna Tuner, but there does not appear to be much interest and using it effectively may be a problem, so it's out. I did receive a request for a "Power Level Upgrade" kit but decided against that because there is a whole lot of testing to be done when you get into RF Amplification.
What may make sense, unless it's already out there as an add-on upgrade kit, is a Power/SWR capability using a simple Stockton Bridge and a couple of AD8307's. I'm quite familiar with the bridge and the AD8307 parts are getting really cheap <$0.50 each. Wonder if those Chinese parts are usable at QRP specs ? Would need two analog inputs on whatever microcontroller .......and, of course, the ever present requirement for someone to provide support firmware.
