VK2YAC's Yard-long, In-The-Yard, Bidirectional, Backyard Si5351 Rig


Alf, VK2YAC, wrote to Pete thanking him for the inspiration provided by the LBS project that Pete and Ben launched via QRP Quarterly.   Alf has obviously taken to heart Pete's recommendation re using a BIG breadboard.  

On his web page Alf writes: "Build your homebrew station and join the revolution, it's lots of fun!"   We're with you Alf! 
Alf has more great pictures of his BBR-40 rig and short descriptions of the sub-circuits he has used.  Note Si5351 with Arduino Pro-Mini for BFO and VFO.

  2. That would be a great demonstration for area hamfests.

  3. I am going to assume that the little rubber feet are there but that we just can not see them in the provided photo.

  4. Looks great. I'd put three foot legs on it and stick in my living room as a coffee table. When people ask tell them it's "a little time travel project I've been working on." Then point at random areas and say things like "Einstein - Rosen Bridge," "flux capacitor," and "temporal quantum displacement" while nodding thoughtfully.

  5. Yea, but if you are doing that DON'T turn it on. The chatter on 40 will shatter any illusion of advanced-ness!
