Video of Pete's VERY COOL Zia Build



This is cool in so many ways:

I like the RF amp along the back with the LP filter off to the side.

The stacked PC boards are very nice.

The Display -- What can I say?

Having stations from the Philippines (DU) for the receiver demo.  Nice touch.

Mesh-like side panels!  And the plexiglass top!  Wow!

PAINTING THE COPPER-CLAD FRONT PANEL BLACK!  WOW!  BLACK IS THE NEW COPPER!

Nice feet for the rig.  Feet are key.

NO NOTICEABLE PHASE NOISE.  No Si5351 output bleed-over.

Love the name:  ZIA!!  (That was my only contribution.)

  1. Very, very pretty Pete. Nothing I ever build is neat enough to be that small. :-)
