Picastar builder, Charlie, VK3NX

June 9th, 2009 Charlie, VK3NX reports nearly finished.


Hi Glenn,

Iím almost completely finished! Iíve done some preliminary testing and measuring and all is working correctly...

Iím impressed with the sensitivity of the unit.... My signal generator only goes down to -127dB and putting this into the BPF input produces a s/n on 10m of 3dB at least ( yes I have taken great care with shielding from the sig gen) In setting up my amplifier ( a surplus CODAN unit)

I have also included some photos of my build ...it has progressed further from these, but Iíll send final pics soon.

Regards Charlie VK3NX
