Covers four bands, 80/40/30/20 meters, using plug in filter modules
Very low operating current - just 25 ma.
Light weight, 8.0 oz with six "AAA" batteries installed.
Shirt pocket size, 4.7" long, 3.1" wide, 1.1 " tall
2.5+ watts output with 9 volts supply. Over 1 watt output at 6 volts with "dead" "AAA" batteries! Efficient MOSFET transmitter, now SWR protected by zener diode.
Push button control
Direct Frequency Entry using paddle. Just key in the frequency you want and it goes there!
Stable DDS VFO. (AD9834 low power DDS)
Classic NE612 receiver design, with switchable input attenuator. Four crystal IF filter for improved opposite side band rejection, Audio band pass filter for peaking the audio response,, 100 mw bridged output head phone driver.
Tunes lower 150 KHz of the bands. Sorry, cross mode operation (CW to SSB) not possible, due to the narrow IF and audio band pass filters designed for optimum CW operation.
Audio Frequency Enunciator. Spots the operating frequency in Morse code output.
Built in iambic keyer with auto straight key detect. One keyer message memory, with pause, stop and beacon control from paddle.
Extensive use of surface mounted parts.
Operates with 6 to 12 volt supply
Internal 9V "AAA" battery pack and external power jack
|AL7FS was originally licensed as WN0LPK in March 1965 (WA0LPK from 1965-1985). Jim is a member of AARC and SCRC and he has participated in HF from 160-10 meters (CW and SSB), packet, satellite, 6 meter, UHF, VHF, ATV, EME (2 meter WAS #36), DX, and QRP. QRP has lasted the longest and the strongest - 1970 to the present.|
