Still remember KN-Q7A?

Adam Rong
 

Gang,

I listen a lot but seldom transmit. Although I have a few radios to choose from, I still wish to build a dedicated receiver. I hope it is low noise and high performance, so I consider KN-Q7A receiver portion. By using four crystals in crystal socket, I can tune 7.000-7.030 for CW, 7.050-7.130 for SSB. I added a power switch and power indicator LED and power consumption is about 35 mA.

I have depleted MC1350 so I believe for a while it is not possible to produce more CS kits, but I have an alternative solution and it works fine. Some redesign is required, so let’s wait for some time. 
Thanks,
Adam


HT-1A videos uploaded

Hi All,

Followings are my HT-1A field operation video in California.
On the day, 40m condx was not good. So I moved up 20m and made several QSOs.
This 5-watt dual bander worked fine in my travel. Equipped internal battery, 5W continuous output,
good sensitivity and easy to see display are the nice companion's feature during trip.
Enjoy !

Re: HT-1A progress update

Gang,

The first batch will be depleted soon and we are waiting for the 2nd batch because the case customization might take a few weeks. So far the feedback is quite positive and we are waiting for the first eham.net review soon.

Most kits went to Japan. As the Tokyo ham fair is coming soon, please check out the sample at the QRP village booth if you are visiting Japan. It becomes a tradition thanks to Nakajima-san that CRKits products are shown in the QRP village booth every year.

Recently I purchased a few old Kenwood radios like TS-940S and I am amazed by the great performance and nice design about 30 years old. The documents are well written so I can easily repair my radio if it goes wrong. Good examples for me to follow.

Thanks,
Adam

Thanks,
Adam

Re: CS-40F: Radio for FT-8

Adam Rong
 

Jim,

I ran my test based on a USB to TTL converter board. At this moment, I don’t have plan to offer a VOX circuit as the converter will do PTT control quite well.

Thanks,
Adam

Will the finished version FT8 radio have build in VOX circuit & USB port? Those two things would really help this rig sell.

I think it should have 3.5mm audio in/out ports also.

Will it have a small frequency display for fine tuning?

Hi,

I was missing this part from my kit. Any way to get one ... even if I have to buy it!

Thanks .... Bill


Re: HT-1A progress update

Adam Rong
 

Update:
The designer improved fast tuning experience and added a feature to select side tone from 500, 600 and 700 Hz by firmware. A minor fix is also applied to PCB to improve AGC response.

I am going to make the product orderable from my web store on July 1 at regular price 150 USD for kit and 175 USD for assembled radio. Introductory price is still valid this month to save 25 USD each. Please make payment now to my PayPal rongxh@... and I will ship based on the order time. The first lot will be limited to 20.

Thanks,
Adam
