Project "on hold" – AM Tenbox
Like many of my projects, this transceiver is “on hold” due to my stroke. I am still too unwell to do much in the way of designing and building. One day, not too far away, I hope to complete this project. If anyone else wants to do this, please use my schematic as a starting point. With a small PCB it would make a nice club project.
It will make an ideal simple rig for nattering across town, especially as 10m loses its fizz and starts to act more like a vhf band again. Such conditions may be with us for years. I fancy putting this in a box like the old Heathkit Lunchboxes with a proper LS amp and LS.
Sorry to hear about your health problems, it seems to catch up to us all sooner or later. I am intrigued with your 10 box project but curious where one would find a crystal to put us in the AM portion of the 10 meter band. I looked around for anything in the 29.000 to 29.200 range and never came across anything. It would be easy to use a si5351 and a Arduino to generate any frequency in the band, but that kind if takes away from the minimalistic aspect of the project. Hope you get better soon.
