Folks,

D4D was introduced by BG2KAJ, the ex-editor for CQ Communication Today magazine in China, equivalent to CQ or QST in USA. The introduction attracted many domestic hams. He wrote, no matter it is for hands-on experience improvement or QRP culture popularization, this kit is a good chance to try.

D4D: 4th Shipment and Some Test on Raspberry Pi

Adam Rong
 

Folks,

Just updated the 4th shipment. Now I have a few kits in my shipping agent so you will get shipped shortly if you order exactly same as the stock kits.

Also, I have played with Raspberry Pi last weekend and I have some preliminary result based on my test with my Elecraft K2. I can remote control with TeamViewer and operate my K2 to snag some FT8 QSO with my cell phone on the go.

Thanks for clarifying Adam.


Re: D4D Audio very low

Guys,

30dB is recommended. It is not low.

Thanks,
Adam

I also have low audio at around 30-40db with the pre-built 40m you sent me. But it seems to work ok...

David,

Please don’t add amplifier as the output spectrum is not clear due to inter-modulation, so it is a good idea to stay at 1-watt.

Thanks,
Adam

 It is decoding, have checked parts. It does work and I am very happy with it for sure! Just wanted to see if I could help the audio out a hint more.

I made a FT8 700+mile  qso today on a indoor magloop and about 11w using the D4D on a WA2EBY amp.

Re: D4D Audio very low

David,

It is not normal. I have used several sound cards and they are normally above 40dB, sometimes over 50dB.  This is my Sound Blaster Play !3.
  1. Can you make sure that you have chosen the correct sound card in software? It is in Setting - Audio.
  2. Can you double check if you have installed the parts properly? If yes, try to bypass the crystal in the front end by a 103 or 104 cap to see if the audio increases. 
  3. Also, if you can decode something, you don’t have to worry too much.

Thanks,
Adam

David,

What is your sound card? What is the reading of your audio input in dB? Is it over 30dB?

Thanks,
Adam

They had a couple sample units at FDIM in Dayton. When I talked to them, they told me it was in final stages of testing. I think they will not bring the link live when they release the product.

D4D: Third Shipment

Adam Rong
 

Folks,

I have just updated tracking numbers for the 3rd shipment. I have cleared all the backlog now.

I have received several messages reporting the receipt of my previous shipments. Please check the parts based on the part list and if you find missing parts, please let me know, so I can arrange shipment next Monday.

The introductory price will end by the end of this month. Starting from July 1, 2019, the shipping fee will be added.

Thanks,
Adam
