    Sounds very interesting! Any possibility of a future development also for iPad with USB camera connection kit?!?

    Hi Howard, what a fantastic compact device, well done. I have just forwarded the AMSAT-BB text across to the HPSDR reflector as we have been talking about developing a VHF version, your device goes the extra mile. Later I would like to develop one that can received up to 10 GHz for receiving the AMSAT-DL satellite P5 and display a full band waterfall too.
    Best regards Howard, 73’s Chris GW6KZZ

    I’ve cross posted some details on to the dttsp list, Dttsp is a very nice SDR suite.
    Runs on Linux and the Sdr-shell which is the user interface now compiles OK on QT4, so its now OK on all new linux distributions.
    there is already the capability to load frequency data into a Si570 via a USB interface.
    I’ve offered to that group to attempt to modify the code so that it will drive your front end.
    I’d like to get my hands on a dongle, can I help please.

    Best wishes

      Hi Richard

      Thanks for your note. When the device ships we’ll publish the HID spec. It’s a very simple interface, within a 64 byte HID packet you send a command byte folllowed by any parameters in packed binary. You are blessed with a short HID repsonse in return confriming the operation.

      Hi Richard

      Apologies for the delay in replying. An example of the programming interface is here: http://www.funcubedongle.com/?p=107

      Regarding obtaining an FCD, they are due to be available in December. Once I have confirmed assembly dates from the manufacturers, I’ll be in a position to organise distribution arrangements for ordering.

      Many thanks, Howard

    Great project! Thanks!

    Can it tune the lower portion of the 6m band (50MHz ~ 50.2MHz)?

  5. Hi Howard,
    this all sounds very interesting. Set me on the purchase list, please.
    I’m looking forward to hearing any news.
    73, Mike
