4 m TRCV

Postby SP5CCC » Tue 24 Apr 2012, 14:20

Hi to all funs of 4 m band!
I appreciate idea to create a dedicated 4 m band trcv.
The emost important in my case is a mobility of such a device and access to CW and SSB.

There is an SDR available for 70 MHz, I found it by chance a while ago. You can see it at <http> and while it uses a sound card rather than direct sampling, it does represent a very interesting entry into the world of SDRs on the VHF bands for those willing to experiment.

Disclaimer: I have no connection with the UHFSDR, nor have I used one.

When I was at the Dayton hamfest last year, I was chatting to a chap on the Alinco stand (seemed to be from the HQ in Japan) about the 4m band, and I suggested that there might be a market opportunity to sell an all-mode transceiver incorporating the 4m band. I had a copy of PW with me and I showed him adverts for a 4m FM rig (to demonstrate the interest in the UK). I will be back again this year, and it will be interesting to have the same chat to see whether or not my suggestion fell on deaf ears :(

As for the poll +1. My attempts to homebrew anything 4m related have gone no-where :?

If it was an SSB/CW only, tunable, sensitive, SDR style, cheapish kit, then I would buy it.

That would work for me.


Yes,me too!! Transverter is good,but the HF transceiver is everytime busy to be an I.F.
We are Waiting a 4 meters transceiver simple and smart,if cheap better!

I wouldn't even be that fussed about memories.

500Khz Stable VFO
ALC/AMP control on rear
PC level audio i/p & o/p
N-TYPE connector
Large, clear properly calibrated S-Meter.
RF gain.
10w or 100w option

Most importantly a very good receiver

Less important.
SDR I/Q output
Passband tuning
Variable bandwidth
