Well, no, not really. Probably. Who knows? but we live in clickbait times, so ¯_(ツ)_/¯ Been following Hans’ G0UPL QCX projects for a while, but missed out on the first two batches of the QDX. WELL NOT THIS TIME! so I got one and started building it. The kit is great (not too easy, not…(Continue Reading)
4S2P power pack with 18650
Having a few leftover 18650 batteries (about … too many), I decided to put them to use instead of recycling them, so let’s build a power pack. DISCLAIMER don’t do this unless you know what you’re doing. I’m not responsible for anything you might do wrong.
Anything to 13.8V
As you know, many/most transceivers want a 13.8 V input – charging voltage of a standard NiMH battery. This does not really match the modern world of LiIon/LiPo chemistry, on which a single cell can have between 3.3 to 4.2V – meaning an 3S pack would be 9.9 to 12.6V (too low) and an 4S…(Continue Reading)
My v5 µBitx
Awesome, cheap, 10-ish watt HF transceiver with open-source software. Take a look at how I built mine.
