Ham It Up V1.0 - Rf Upconverter For Sdr (funcube, Rtlsdr); Mf/hf Converter E4000 For Sale
Ham It Up v1.2
1 fully assembled RF upconverter
Full Project Documentation at opendous.org
Independent Review at hamradioscience.com
Software defined radio
Now shipping v1.2! Major changes include:
Sturdier USB-B connectorsupplants the micro-B connector used on v1.0
Filters completelyredesigned for 125MHz operationto move the LO away from the broadcast FM band. Of course, ahigh-quality 125MHz oscillatoris included
USB shield separated from USB ground
Other components in the RF path revised forimproved SNR
Ham/amateur radio enthusiasts rejoice! Our MF/HF converter for software defined radio is finally available for sale, and with free world-wide shipping to boot.
Don't let our price fool you, though. We believe this is the best SDR upconverter currently available. Here's why:
Female SMA for both input and output for a wide array of connectivity options
In-line SMAconnectors. Much easier to connect and manipulate than side-by-side SMA connectors
Antenna protectionon RF input; in-circuit in both enable and passthrough mode
Solelyhigh-quality componentsused in the RF signal path
Powered by common USB-B USB for a multitude of power options
RF-suitable power supply regulation (TPS79333)
PTC fuseon USB power input to protect your upconverter from short circuits
Upconverterenable/passthrough toggle switch--less fiddling with small, delicate cables and connectors
Socketed oscillator for a simple upgrade path
Stable 25ppm oscillatorincluded
LO disabled in passthrough mode
High-quality 2-layer PCB with ENIG finish
Fully assembledand ready to use
Designed to fit standard off-the-shelf Hammond enclosures
2 mounting holes for standard PC screws
Designed and manufacturered in conjunction withOpendous Inc., an excellentopen-hardware designcompany
Full project documentation--schematics, PCB design files, assembly information--is freely available (see link above). DIY'ers rejoice! We will have a limited number of bare PCBs available for those who want to 'roll their own'
A portion of the proceeds from your purchase will be used tosupportthis and otheropen-hardware, open-source initiatives
BONUS! We had space left on the PCB, so rather than waste it we have added a noise source circuit at no additional cost! We have even populated most of the components for you. We have kits of the components required to complete this bonus noise source circuit available for a small additional fee. Details of the noise source circuit are available with the project documentation, and a detailed image of the circuit can be seen in the pictures above.
Before operating your unit for the first time, and every time you run with a new SDR, we recommend running the tuning procedurelocated here. It is not a mandatory procedure but may help fine-tune your, erm. tuning. Pop the included oscillator into its socket and you are ready to go!
Operating the unit is very simple:
Connect your antenna to the RF input
Connect your SDR to the IF output
Ensure your toggle switch is in the enable position
Plug your USB power source into the USB-B USB jack
Fire up your favorite SDR software. Tune to 125MHz (+/- the tuning offset from the tuning procedure) + your desired frequency and enjoy!
