Parts are available from Farnell
and RS. In the U.S. DigiKey, Mouser and Newark.
Details and part numbers for special components are in the parts list and on my STORE page.
Resistors are 1206 SMD 1%.
The MMIC MAR-6 can be obtained from GH Engineering, Mainline Electronics and RS amongst others.The GALI84+ has better power output than the MAR6 and will fit OK.
Several suitable amplifier/driver kits to
get the rf level up to that required(eg:1mW to 500mW) to run a
single RA18H PA are available from RFBasicStore or MiniKits.or w6pql.Also PE1RKI in Holland has pcbs and kits
and assembled PAs.
More will be added as we discover them.The MiniKits 1W board/kit is fine for most purposes.
|NYQUIST FILTER VALUES|
Version 5.9 pcb (current)
Wire-ended inductors are now replaced with SMD inductors for the Nyquist Filter.
6 way header for plugging in an optional sub-board with different filter values to suit requirements. (Provision for fixed values to be used on main board instead if preferred).
The modulator IC has a ground solder plane to enable the 70cm device with its ground tab to be fitted.
NEW ! Nyquist Plug-in Filter Board (use with version 5.9 up only).
LATEST: A new design of the Filter board is currently being manufactured. If you plan to use a plug-in filter board please choose the 6 way header/housing with care. I will be recommending a suitable connector combination in the parts list with the circuit and pcb.
If you wish to make your own single sided board , here
is a suggested layout. The layout is not critical so other methods of
construction could be employed. Actual pcb size is 18mm x 22.5mm. No
mounting is required as the connector plug will support it. A
right-angle plug could be used to allow the board to lay horizontally.
Do not fit the filter components onto the main pcb if you wish to use
this subpanel instead.
