I haven’t been posting here much lately, but last month or two i was able to work a bit on the rev 0.8 source codes. There are total of five projects that are needed for the new revision. I will use my spare time to bring everything up to speed. If interested, please check out my GitHub page:
The supplied image for latest 0.6.x sub-revision will usually give error and long boot delay due to removed MCP9801 chip from the RF board. If that is annoying to you as me, please flash the supplied modded image. I have also included IDA disassembly and i assume is possible to do simple binary search in future revisions and modify.
I have recently seen that TS-990 video showing of the fixed mode and couldn’t sleep until i coded this. I was lucky, Clint has left something useful in the audio_driver.c file few years ago(yay, open source)
I am sorry for the bad quality, not easy to shoot the glossy screen, plus i only have my phone. But at least the band was open tonight!
Following many requests to split V 0.6 components kit into RF board build kit and UI board build kit
we are now please to offer this configuration. For information on price and shipping please visit our Order page.
I would like to advise that shipping may follow up to 3-4 working days after purchase as we don’t stock large quantity of all components.
The mcHF project has been running for almost five years now. Thank you all for your continued support. We are constantly trying to make it more fun and implement the many ideas we have as well as take on board comments from users.
Currently we are working on a very exiting revision V 0.8 . Some of you may have seen new image uploaded on our Home page or twitter posts giving a small preview about it. Still to come are many days of active development but once work is complete we hope the wait will have been worth it – upgraded UI board, fully compatible with the Logic, RF board and case. New 5 inch capacitive touch LCD allowing for more user friendly interface.
We also are planning to start operating on pre-order basis, the details of which we are still discussing. This will allow us to be faster on implementing bug fixes as well as updates on hardware and a better chance against competition. We have not been very flexible in doing that due to various reasons. We have tried to cater for as many hams as we can. From the types preferring ‘solder all yourself kits’, to partially factory assembled ones. This has resulted in having to carry an excess stock of components, cases and Lcd’s.
In the start of operating the new way, we would like to offer few left over mcHF V 0.7 kits at a reduced price. Please refer for more details here
As i have came back to active development (hardware and firmware) i found the need to update the boards with debug connectors. My obvious choice is the 6 pin Nucleo connector. The ST serial interface allows for fast programing from any IDE and real time debug (with 2 Mhz instead of printf via slow UART port).
Right now there are two debug ports, on the Logic and UI boards, so this panel reflects the position of those. If you have a printer, you can make one yourself as temporary solution, while debugging and keep your original aluminium panel intact.
