DDS For Bitx

It gives me great pleasure in presenting the DDS. which has been made and documented by my good friend Tony Fletcher MOPKD from United Kingdom. The PCB will be available soon.

The kit will also be available later. Tony has put in his comments:-

The dds is the only one available using conventional components the rest are surface mount ,this was built with Bitx in mind ,the construction is solid and good and offers features many other dds units do not have such as keypad entry ,band switching for filters and switching of modes for filters .
The specifications of the dds can be found in the dds v4 notes ,the dds was not designed by myself ,but i merely made the pcb designs to allow others to be able to make this for use with a radio receiver ,transceiver ,or stand-alone unit ,

Update On Bitx Cabinet And Modules

The Bitx modules for Multi-band are ready and will be out soon. With
these modules you can make Bitx a Multi Band TCVR . Also we are coming up
with a DDS that should make it more easier.

After we get feed back on modules working with the Bitx then only we
will go ahead and make a new Pcb design with the modules integrated.

These modules can be used for any home brew project and are as add on.
The new Bitx cabinets are under construction and soon you will have a
few models to choose from . These cabinets will be
self assembled ones, i.e the Cabinet will be in 6 parts and can be
assembled, hi hi
Wish you all the best
