Re: Odyssey's preorder is opened !

Hi David,

Congratulations on the official release of Odyssey 2.
In my case, I got the opportunity to get the board. I could not put up with the release and gathered parts for myself and made it.
It took more than $ 670 for parts alone. I think price is conscientious pricing.
I got a lot of advice from David to be made for odyssey1 and odyssey2. 
Thank you very much.

Odyssey's preorder is opened !

David Fainitski
 

Hello, people.


You didn't hear about me a long time, I am sorry.


This time I made the first preorder for my russian-language customers. I have made 6 pcs of Odyssey-2 boards and some of them work in air right now. 


Finally I am ready announce the global preorder for this transceiver. What is meaning "Preorder" ? It is meaning that you are staying in a live line after paying. First In -  First Out  :)


Today I received 10 assembled (only R and C) boards from one china company - Seeed Studio (see the foto). 

So first 9 customers (one board is mine !) will recieve own transceiver pretty quickly. Manufacturing period in Seeed studio 30 days and it is really too long. I find one Canada's company that can make this job for 3-4 days bit I need place a larger order - 50 or more peaces for cost effective.


Anyway I think that any customer will receive own transceiver in one month period.


Also I have right now 25 manufacturing quality cases for transceiver. Covers I do by himself on my CNC from special plastic. Quality is pretty good, the design is very rigid ( see the foto). Alternativelly you can buy standart Hammond housing 1455R1601 and make shorten it to 80mm by himself. Aluminium covers you can order using Front Panel Express service https://www.frontpanelexpress.com/.


What price ? At this time I can offer you the Odyssey-II assembled and tested board for 670 USD and housing for 75 USD. Yes, this toy is not so cheap as we want. I don't know what price will be set later, it is depended from suppliers components and other expences. This price is not fixed forever.


Shipping is free and only for US addressates. Customers from other country should make an aacount in https://www.shipito.com/ or any other forwarder that has address in USA. I will ship for free on forwarder's address and after that you will be able to choose your fancy shipping metod  and make a customer declarance with any price.

This shipping method is really reliable, fast and cheap.


So, what needed for making order ? Pay needed money via PayPal to rolin791@...  and send me message to dfainitski@... with your address and other. Keep in mind that PayPal can  withhold 4% for transaction if you are not US buyer.


Thank you and best regards.

Hi David,

Thank for reply.
This is nice sheet. I will try to get it.

Thanks, Leo

Hello, Leo

 FPGA is not needed in heatsink in this project. I suggest you put thermal pad between board and housing in driver MOSFET area.  Like this ...

Besides, the heatsink on FPGA will interfere install sound speakers.

Hi

A heat sink was attached  the FPGA and the under final FET.
It seems that the current is always flowing through the final amplifier.

Hi David,

Thank you for fix problem.
Now it 's works fine.

Hi David,

When I tried the firmware of Odyssey_2_1.06_ANP, Diversity stopped working.

Thanks, Leo

Hi David,

Your website is not working.
Thanks for telling me this. I can open it here locally but I will check it out.


All those based on simple UDP connection. You should learn also what is direct
and nondirect broadcast packet.
Thanks David.

Hi David

Thanks for keeping us informed. I would like to take the opportunity to
ask here about the communication protocols or API that is used to control
odyssey etc via Ethernet. I like to write my own software for linux as a
hobby and have written some apps that work with SDR receivers (rtl-sdr,
sdrplay and perseus), but these are via a usb interface. You can see my
efforts here: http://www.5b4az.org/

I though have little knowledge of ethernet comms so I would like to know
what system is used to connect with odyssey. Is it sockets? or some other
system? I would like to know so I can get started studying and hopefully
manage to learn enought to handle an odyssey sdr or similar!

Thank you.

Firmware with support the old openHPSDR protocol for Odyssey-2

David Fainitski
 

Hi people.


I have made the new firmware with the simple old HPSDR protocol.  It is equal to Angelia board firmware.


7 receivers are avalaible simultaneously (what a difficult word!).

I finished make a panel. And I put on PCB.

Re: Odyssey's Panel

Thank you.
I used laser equipment to mark plastic packages of Semiconductor devices.
The processing data of the panel was received from David.

Looks cool! Way to go in production, when it happens...

Odyssey's Panel

Leo Goto
 

I carried out laser marking on the panel of Odyssey 2.

After this, I do not have a milling device, so I have to process the panel by hand.

Perhaps, my arms will become muscle pain afterwards.

Odyssey2 PCB almost done.

Leo Goto
 

Hi All,


Assembly of Odyssey 2 PCB board is almost completed. 

I tried to receive it but I can not communicate with Thetis.

As another problem, the OELD display is not displayed.

The power switch can not be turned ON / OFF. It is always on.

There are lots of uneasiness.

 I got advice from David and tried various things, but when PC and Odyssey are via HUB, I can not communicate with Thetis. (The HUB is compatible with Gigabit Ether.)

 So when I tried connecting the PC and Odyssey 2 directly, I was able to communicate with Thetis.

Still, the problem of the power switch remains.

I cut Hammond's 1455R 1601 case in half. It was serious as I cut by hand.


Hi David,

Thank you very much and your always kindness.

Re: Oddessy-1 Reference input

David Fainitski
 

Hi.
I think does not matter.

Set your SDR programm on 10.000 MHz and zoom this to maximum.
Connect reference freq. If stick shifted - it is work.

Best regards.

David

Re: Odyssey II - A hands on the hardware.

David Fainitski
 

Hi people.

I am working now on firmware. Simple old openHPSDR protocol with 7 independed receivers and Gigabit LAN will be present soon.

Oddessy-1 Reference input

The specs say logic level 3.3-5 Volts. I am assuming this is SQUARE WAVE or does it matter? Some GPSDO's only do SINE.
