    Quite glad on finding the mcHF source (after seeing the clones). Is there an “operator manual” for the v0.7 somewhere? I looked in the “mcHF_rev_0.7.zip” file, but nothing seen there for the Op Manual. Maybe I missed seeing the link or something. After seeing some of the YouTube videos of the v0.6 units (all clones I think), I believe the v0.7 unit’s operation should be close to intuitive. I do plan on placing an order for the full kit from here over the weekend.

      Hello,

      This would require proper description of the firmware features and menus, and unfortunately this is beyond our control right now. We just support the small scale kits manufacturing. Maybe in near future, who know.

    Sorry if this is repetition, but I see that an email sent by someone only yesterday appears at the top of this list while mine, sent about a week ago when you were away, was “awaiting moderation” and is nowhere to be seen. I asked if any more assembled version 0.6 boards would be made available, since I see that I’m not alone in preferring that configuration for the sake of portability. It does seem a great shame that the needs of those who like portable operation have been rather overlooked in this latest version, particularly since it was only ten days or so ago that I discovered this set fully built from China. But subsequently, your website and “the Devil is in the detail” remarks caught my eye, thank goodness!

        Dear Christophe

        Very many thanks for your kind reply. I am sorry to learn that is so. I am also sorry to see how “newbies” are both replied to and have to struggle to understand things on this incredibly inward looking website, apparently structured for the benefit of only true initiates. A great pity, since the idea is probably of much wider appeal and I felt a good deal of sympathy for someone who had had his idea ripped off by the Chinese. Sadly, it looks as if they will be getting my custom, no matter how much I would have preferred it to be otherwise.

        Kind regards

          No, I hadn’t seen that this point was covered anywhere on this deeply confusing site, despite looking. But it has just occurred to me that it’s owner must have encountered my original post and “moderated” it to the dustbin before ignoring completely my second. Only days ago, I stumbled upon the Chinese clone of this marvellous set on eham.net and got all excited, eventually tracking this site down, but being ignored until your kind intervention. Still, it’s reassuring to know that someone with a Bulgarian surname is acquainted with English expressions like “The Devil is in the detail.” Let’s hope he also becomes aware of another, that “Manners maketh man”.

          Kind regards

            Bonjour Martin,

            Je vous répond en Français car mon Anglais est catastrophique :
            Chris ne peut malheureusement pas répondre à tout le monde, son YL lui donne un précieux coup de main, mais vu le nombre croissant de demandes …

            Avant que mon premier message ne soit validé il c’est passé une bonne semaine, cela ne m’a pas dérangé, rappelons nous la rapidité des premières liaisons “Packet-Radio” en AX25 : c’était lent 😉

            Personnellement, coté financier je vais attendre avant de pouvoir commander un kit complet, et ce ne sera pas la version chinoise pour plusieurs motifs :
            -version chinoise = v0.6 ou antérieur
            – version chinoise de qualité moyenne à médiocre sur certains composants, dont ceux des filtres, ce qui est un peu crucial pour le fonctionnement de ce TRX
            – Chris M0NKA, et un certain nombre d’OM ont mis de leurs temps, de leurs moyens, pour réaliser un appareil magnifique, en constante évolution.
            – les Chinois on copiés ce travail et le commercialisent sans autorisations ni indemnités. Moi je ne cautionne pas cela.
            la version V0.7 est certe plus grande et moins “Portable-compliant” mais elle est vouée à évoluer.

            as-tu regardé le nombre de composants qui compose ce TRX ? il y a beaucoup de travail, j’ai récemment acheté juste les PCB de la V0.7, pensant pouvoir trouver tous les composants moi même, ce n’est pas si simple, cela représente des heures voir des jours de travails pour préparer une liste pour commander le matériel. Chris l’a fait, et ça mérite le respect.

            Et coté prix, je trouve cela plus que correct. les chinois sont dans la même fourchette de prix, mais pour une qualité largement inférieur.

            Je ne vois pas le rapport entre l’origine d’un nom “bulgare” et la connaissance de l’Anglais ? les radioamateurs ne devraient-ils pas s’affranchir de ce type d’étiquette ?

            Cordialement,
            73
            Christophe, F4ANH

            Version of my answer translated by google:
            Hello Martin,

            I answer you in French because my English is catastrophic:
            Chris can not answer everyone, his YL gives him a helping hand, but given the growing number of requests …

            Before my first message was validated it was a good week, it did not bother me, remember the speed of the first links “Packet-Radio” in AX25: it was slow;)

            Personally, financial side I will wait before I can order a complete kit, and it will not be the Chinese version for several reasons:
            -Chinese version = v0.6 or earlier
            – Chinese version of average to poor quality on some components, including those of filters, which is a little crucial for the operation of this TRX
            – Chris M0NKA, and a number of OM have put their time, their means, to achieve a beautiful device, constantly evolving.
            – The Chinese copy this work and market it without authorization or compensation. I do not endorse that.

            Built V0.7 is certainly larger and less “portable-compliant” but it is doomed to evolve.

            have you looked at the number of components that make up this TRX? there is a lot of work, I recently bought just the V0.7 PCB, thinking I can find all the components myself, it is not so simple, it represents hours to see days of work to prepare a list to order the material. Chris did it, and it deserves respect.

            And quoted price, I find it more than correct. the Chinese are in the same price range, but for a much lower quality.

            I do not see the connection between the origin of a “Bulgarian” surname and the knowledge of English? should not ham radio operators get rid of this type of tag?

            73

            Dear Christophe

            I’m 73 and used to build crystal sets and simple transistor sets in my youth (OC70s?). I fantasised about becoming a ham, but work prevented that and, on retiring, learned about QRP, which appealed to my as-small-as-possible attitude. Product reviews of the Chinese clones on eham.net and YouTube got me really excited just days ago, but I was saddened to learn that they were ripped off from this project, so made efforts to find out about the mcHF. But it was hard going! Most sites, including this one, seemed to be about people intensely talking to one another about abstruse matters with no way in for a newbie. Being confronted by blogs, without guides to more basic things, seemed ultra confusing. Then, bliss, I saw “The Devil is in the detail” and emailed the owner, but failed to connect. Hence my first post, and then second, as described. Since my fantasies extend only to portable operation, I was keen on the version 0.6, as featured in the clones, and certainly saw nothing saying these boards were discontinued, despite version 0.7 having arrived. So I was particularly disappointed to be ignored (twice) as others who wrote were also ignored. This seems to me to be unpardonable, particularly in view of the site’s confusing organisation. Since the owner appeared to have a Bulgarian name (not that I have the slightest thing against Bulgarians or any other nationalities) and his syntax seemed a little uncertain in places, I ventured to suppose he might not be familiar with an particular English expression, which he might benefit from knowing. I’m sorry you clearly think that this was a cheap shot. If the portable version is no longer available, and particularly if serious enquiries are ignored, I won’t be troubling this site again. But you should appreciate that the whole approach here does seem to be horribly unwelcoming to newcomers.

            With kind regards
            Martin Amstell

            PS Please accept my apologies for the following Google translation. In English amateur radio operators are called “hams”, but this looks quite funny in French!

            Cher Christophe

            J’ai 73 ans et j’ai l’habitude de construire des sets de cristal et de simples transistors dans ma jeunesse (OC70s?). J’ai fantasmé sur le fait de devenir un jambon, mais le travail l’a empêché et, en prenant sa retraite, j’ai appris sur QRP, qui a fait appel à mon attitude aussi petite que possible. Les commentaires sur les clones chinois sur eham.net et sur YouTube m’ont vraiment enthousiasmé il y a quelques jours, mais j’ai été attristé d’apprendre qu’ils ont été détournés de ce projet, alors j’ai fait des efforts pour en savoir plus sur la mcHF. Mais c’était dur! La plupart des sites, y compris celui-ci, semblaient concerner des gens qui se parlaient intensément à propos de sujets abscons, sans aucun moyen pour un novice. Être confronté à des blogs, sans guides pour des choses plus élémentaires, semblait ultra confus. Puis, le bonheur, j’ai vu “Le diable est dans les détails” et a envoyé un courriel au propriétaire, mais n’a pas réussi à se connecter. D’où mon premier message, puis deuxième, comme décrit. Étant donné que mes fantasmes ne s’étendent qu’à l’utilisation portable, je tenais à la version 0.6, comme dans les clones, et je n’ai certainement rien vu qui dise que ces cartes avaient été abandonnées, malgré l’arrivée de la version 0.7. J’ai donc été particulièrement déçu d’être ignoré (deux fois) comme d’autres qui ont écrit ont également été ignorés. Cela me semble impardonnable, notamment au vu de l’organisation confuse du site. Puisque le propriétaire semblait avoir un nom bulgare (pas que je n’aie la moindre chose contre les Bulgares ou d’autres nationalités) et que sa syntaxe semblait un peu incertaine par endroits, j’ai osé supposer qu’il ne connaissait peut-être pas une expression anglaise particulière, il pourrait bénéficier de savoir. Je suis désolé que vous pensiez clairement que c’était un coup bas. Si la version portable n’est plus disponible, et en particulier si les demandes sérieuses sont ignorées, je ne vais pas déranger à nouveau ce site. Mais vous devriez comprendre que toute l’approche ici semble horriblement peu accueillante pour les nouveaux arrivants.

            Cordialement
            Martin Amstell

            PS S’il vous plaît accepter mes excuses pour la traduction suivante de Google. En anglais, les opérateurs de radio amateur sont appelés “jambons”, mais cela semble assez drôle en français!

            Hey Martin,

            Apologies for not replaying to you! I have been very busy with organizing stable production and supply of kits in the last month or two, also doing small updates and improvements. I have left my wife Lucy to handle all e-mails, while me only handling specific technical ones. Really didn’t have much time lately for social media drama, haven’t been on Twitter for a long time.

            Maestro

            Lovely to hear from you, at last! “Social media drama”? Me neither! What is Twitter? Ditto Facebook? I’m 73 after all.

            I was genuinely sorry to hear that what must have been years of grinding endeavour on your part were so mercilessly ripped off by the Chinese. I was also genuinely sorry to hear that version 0.6 is no longer an option, tailor made for portable operation. But, despite all this, and the no doubt correct warnings about component quality in your “Devil” piece, I’ve had no alternative but to order the latest Risen (Recent) model RS-928 for when I eventually qualify for my “ticket”.

            But I’ll keep a weather eye out for developments here, in case you decide a portable version is worth resurrecting and, in the meantime, wish you every success in your future efforts.

            Kind regards

    Hello Chris, Just started debugging my V0.6 kit. Loaded with latest version from DF8OE. I tried to get help via the Yahoo M0NKA mcHF site but have not had a response in the 3 days. Upon power up, i get the version splash screen just fine, Green on solid, Red off, get noise on the speaker with 50 ohm antenna dummy load. It never proceeds to the application screen, just stays stuck on the version splash screen.
    I’ve tried removing 0 ohm jumpers for the screen as presented in yahoo group, but nothing seems to work. So…. how does one get help with problems like this? Is there a master trouble shooting guide I’m missing somewhere? Thanks for the help… ..Lynn.. W8LFM

          That’s what I did. The cases were in stock, so I ordered. Then I waited for parts, checking back several times a day each day until they were in stock. I ordered the moment stock was available. Now if only I knew where they were. 🙂

          Ordering and shipment are half the battle. USPS tracking is abysmal. The case was processed through New York 5 days ago at 4 in the morning – and despite signing up for status updates, that status has not progressed, and no updates have been provided. The parts kit has been in “origin post is preparing shipment” status for a few days now.

    Any idea how to catch and order kit? or even assembled if its in options

    Chris,
    any rough prediction when the case (enclosure) might be available? Or do I have to buy it somewhere else and you only publish the 3D files? I was lucky enough to snatch one of the full 0.7 kits, and it would look even better with some sheet metal draping …

      I am in the same situation. I am starting to build the kit but have no clue what I am going to do for an enclosure yet. If I could order just the enclosure from you I certainly would prefer that over building one from scratch.

      Best regards for the holiday season.

      Hi,

      Sorry, the Stock/No Stock label on the Order page is not linked to the PayPal quantity variable, this is
      the problem. So i have to change it manually, but sometimes it takes me some time.

    m0nka,
    I had to purchase a clone because you cannot supply the demand and time is of the essence. I very much appreciate your engineering but not your marketing. I have my specialties, also, and can empathize with your pluses being overshadowed by your minuses. I am critical of myself no less than I am of you. I am, also, very disappointed as I have waited for a year now but have found the full kit unavailable each time I have checked. Bad timing on my part. You do know that some of us can program the radio so that bare hardware is better than no hardware. Good job, otherwise. Herm, KG7WMZ

      Hi Herm,

      I am sorry to hear you are disappointed, i am really trying my best here. I wish you all the best in your
      future endeavors and i am sure you will still contribute to the project in other ways, maybe bug fixes to the
      code or hardware mods. But in all fairness, i had constant stock of full kits during 2017, it is just last
      2-3 months i had sketchy availability, due to the complete redesign to v 0.7.

    Chris, can you tell me what sort of kits you will make available for rev 0.y? Will there be one that includes the case? Will there be a version with most smd parts pre-installed?

    Great job, this rig is awesome!

      Hi Jim,

      The full kit will be the only one i will sell from now on. All SMD parts installed, only through hole left for the user for
      post assembly. Case i can not realistically ship with the kit as the package is getting too heavy and expensive to post. So
      it will be separate item on my Order page. I also have some delay with last components for the case, not sure if Fedex lost
      my last shipment, trying to sort it out.

    Hello! Glad to see that the mini kits are available for order. Two questions:

    1) Did I miss the full kit sale, or have you not put those up yet?

    2) Does the Mini Kit have an installed CPU? I remember you saying that it would, but the description says “blank PCBs”

        Hi Chris

        That’s great to hear. I am also very interested in buying a full mcHF kit and would much rather purchase from you than buy the RS-918

        Do you intend to offer a full kit that does include final MOSFETs (and possibly a case)? Or is the currently listed ‘components kit’ considered the full kit and finals are to be sourced independently?

    Hi Chris, I obtained an unstarted v0.5 kit from Israel. I then managed to install the LCD upside-down. Desoldering and removal has caused quite a bit of damage to LCD lands and tracks on the UI board. What options are open to me? Are there any v0.5 UI kit boards available on their own? Or even a v0.6 if it will still work?

    Thanks and 73 – Rob G0MOH

      Attempting to repair the board with ultra-fine wire, bits of kapton tape, and a strong magnifier! Without PCB artwork it’s a bit of guesswork in places to see what lands go to where, but it’s got to be worth a shot. It’ll either work, or it won’t! If it doesn’t, I’ll have a redundant RF board kit (unstarted) available for sale, as well as a mic, and a case.

    Hi,
    I have mchf damaged by inversed polarity, does anyone knows what parts I need to change to fix it. Is it the F1 fuse or???

    Reply
    1. Sebastian

      Hi,
      the mchf is protected with F1 which will be destroyed by D1 when the polarity is reversed. If you are ABSOLUTELY sure that the polarity is correct, then you can bridge F1 and check if the mchf works properly. You should replace F1 as soon as possible.
      Unfortunately I have no mchf. I’m waiting for the kit. It is still out of stock…

      but most of them are v 0.4 related. A must mods might be touch screen mode and the one
      i have posted recently about cleaner TX signal.

    Hi!

    I want to buy x5 complete kits. May I know about the speaker and the final MOSFETs? These MOSFETs are necessary for complete working of SDR kit. If so, then how and where I can get these. Is there any provision to play with software?

    1. m0nka Post author

      Hi,

      MOSFETs you can buy from reputable ham webshop, as Ebay ones are most probably Chinese fakes.
      Speaker from Farnell or any other that will fit your case. If you do QRP on lower bands, you
      can go with cheap IRF510’s instead of the Mitsubushi MOSFETs, the footprint on the PCB will
      take them.

      If you need more than one kit shipped via DHL, please drop me a mail at djchrismarc at gmail
      to talk.

      Hello Anton,

      Usually those chips are programmed on board, first because they have USB Bootrom that allows programming them from the PC, second
      it is bit expensive to make dedicate programmer with socket.

    This is a really nice looking radio. I have obtained a case and several sets of pcbs and jut recently all the parts from a fellow ham.

    My question is would I be better off getting a set of rev 0.5 pcb’s and building them or just use the rev 0.4 boards I have. If i get a set of rev 0.5 boards are there a lot of differences in the bom? If it is just a few caps and resistors that wouldn’t be a problem.

    Do you have any information that lists what was changed from rev 0.4 to rev 0.5?

    Great project.

    Reply
    1. m0nka Post author

      Hello Peter,

      The 0.5 revision incorporates mods and changes suggested by Clint and community. If you already have v 0.4
      you can build as it is and incorporate mods selectively. There are gradual improvements, but not that critical
      to upgrade. V 0.5 is not the last revision, there will be 0.6 as well…

    I had found the SDR Project by a notice in the db3om forum, where i frequently reads and write.
    I was positiv surprised, that the SDR developer move her focus to the ARM Cortex-M4F from ST, instead the microchip PIC mcu’s where tranditionaly used by Radio Amateurs or use a Raspberry-PI instead.
    Well, your design is amazing and i am interessting in to build such device too but the Display size is to small for me. How is the load of the mcu if this is operate? Is some capacity left to may support 800×480-16 Pixel Displays?

      Hello Gerhard,

      Thanks for your interest. As for selection of ARM instead of Microchip, it is simple really. If i wanted to develop Xmas three controller, PIC would be a great choice, but for the mcHF… On a serious note, i love ARM instruction set and the beautiful core architecture. So easy and fun to use. I have used PICs before, they are great for a low power consumption. As for the Rpi – yeah, i could have used one, if i removed the clunky OS and use super loop firmware coded from scratch. But how do you fit the huge board in a small radio ? Just use the Rpi CPU on the UI board – it was not practical.

      As for the big LCD – i have tested 800×480 LCD, using 24 bit interface, 8 MB external SDRAM and F429 – it can paint the bandscope and nice
      emulated S-meter (like Kenwood 990), and that is pretty all of the CPU power gone. Maybe there will be some left if i code in ASM and optimize, but for this task Rpi would be better – as UI driver, and something else dedicated for DSP and audio only.

    Hi Chris,

    thank you for you very good project.

    The UI-Board I have make complete, the missing 2mm – Header for the display was not a big problem.
    I have single-contacts, they ar gives plugged in paper-strips. You can plug these of the contacts from
    the display and then can all soldert in the PCB.

    I missing the RF-Board with all other things. Can it be, that you send this later ?

      Hello Uwe,

      You are not supposed to solder a header socket for the LCD, it is not part of the BOM and has never been. In theory you can solder one, keep in mind those are very expensive due to the non standard pitch, also your UI board will no longer fit in the 3D case. But if you make your own case, then you can use it. Soon i will list some RF packs only for sale. Check my page from time to time (also i post on Twitter).

You can always download both BOM files from the Hardware page and copy the order codes to your Farnell order. There is also much cheaper option building around 10 GBP discovery board and using stuff from your junk box. Hope this helps.

    c) if the bandwidth filter in the receiver is variable or only in pre-programmed widths ?

    For hams who are not the quickest at building projects, it may be advantageous to only select one
    board and then build it up, and then order the next. It would be especially nice if your interconnect
    (cables and connectors) are not going to change between revisions, then we could order a board to build now that will have the less number of revisions on it, and when we have that one built up.
    in a couple months order the next board that would be your newer revision.

    For some people it may be worth it to pay a little extra on shipping to have this option.

    It is a very appealing little radio, in any case.

      Hi,

      The price is based on weight, if its too much it might be cheaper with DHL. Please drop me a line to my mail to discuss.

      Hi,

      I am working on new revisions of the both boards, but it will be 1-2 months maybe before all is done and tested. There are some mods explained in the Yahoo group. Total cost of parts is about 200 GBP. No need for an oven, but good idea to have hot air station as addition to your iron.

    How much would it cost approximately to order a kit with all of the parts in US dollars, and do you have any plans to add vhf/uhf at some point, as well as an sdr output for viewing and controlling through a comuter?

    Looks great.
    We would like to order 2 complete assemblies (ui & rf pcb + lcd)
    Do I have to select twice an international shipping cost or can you ship combined to Belgium?

      Hi,

      In theory you can order two sets, but will be in same small C size envelope, so there is a danger of damaging the LCDs. Up to you.

    Hi Chris,
    There are many devices in the range of 0.1-30MHz. There are not many TRX at 50MHz and 70MHz.
    Whether a change the antenna filters and the software will receive 50 and 70MHz?
    Converter ADC which has a frequency end?
    Whether it will upgread firmware for modulation FM?

      Hi Artur,

      I have read that by carefully selecting the mixer switching chips it is possible to achieve 50 and 70 Mhz. This will also require the more expensive SI570 versions that can go higher than 160 Mhz. From software point of view this is 10 mins coding, but for VHF you need much better front end, pre-amps, filtering, etc. Also i see in KX3 they push the same final for 50 Mhz as well, but not sure how efficient is the whole thing in 1-50 Mhz range, requires real knowledge in analogue design to make this.

    It is the CDR TRX. Is it possible to write firmware for modulation
    FM. I’m interested by the device can be set to 50MHz and 70MHz.
    Is the ADC will work to 50MHz/70MHz?
    or if you need to do TRV 28MHz/50MHz and 28MHz/70MHz

As the shipping costs to the outside of the UK is so high I waited for teh order of the RF board which was avaliable — last week? Now I can order the other baord and esseantila LCD but without the RF board the Transceiver is not complete. Is there a Chance when all three baords are avaliable at the same time???

    Hello Chris,
    For postage, I deselected the 4 GBP and selected international (6GBP), but I realized afterwards that it should be 10 GBP, therefore both must be selected, right? 6 is additional.

    I also see that you do not have RF board available anymore… for the same postage, I would prefer to wait for it.
    When will you have them again? Thank you!

    Cheers, Jose.

      Hi Jose,

      Yes correct, the base postage of 4 GBP will be included anyway, but covers UK recorded delivery only. So that is why for international need to add extra 6 GBP so total is 10 GBP(the international recorded cost). It is simple shopping cart plugin and this is the best i can do right now, sorry.

      RF boards i will have in hopefully one week time, as far as i get them will update the Order page.

      Hi,

      Yes, i have some UI boards now, probably will update the site tomorrow as i am waiting for DHL to bring some LCDs as well. Those are the HY28B – dual interface version. The latest mcHF firmware supports all the three versions manufactured by hotmcu.com.

          Hi,

          If HY28A is detected on boot up, the SPI is used, if HY28B – the parallel is in use. There is no change of the location of the 16 bit parallel port pins on the three different LCD modules.

    I really like the idea of a kit (may be only the “hard to get” components) and suggest to introduce a list for people who want to buy a complete set of pcb´s / LCD and/or kits.
    May be this is then easiser for the designers to estimate the next pcb run ?!
