Two Ideas

Postby N6IMF » Thu Feb 13, 2014 7:05 am

I like the idea of having the board drive a DC motor or even a stepper. I ran across this
antenna idea by G8JNJ called the Fat Max. Its located at the following link.

Perhaps taking his idea and adding the sweeper board with a motor drive and turning
into a nice poor mans remote tunable antenna.


Second thought was that maybe some of the cheap import dual band hand helds could
be interfaced with the sweeper to extend its range into the VHF-UHF frequencies.

Still waiting for the DDS-60 boards to be re stocked.

I've had many of the same thoughts, I've provided connections on the PC board for a motor controller, but I have not tried it myself.
