Since it seems that the greatest # of people are interested in a
40 meter version of the INET rig, I decided to start on a 40 meter circuit
first, but to make the design easy to modify for other HF bands.
I have come up with a few preliminary designs based on a VFO
running at 4 X the desired output freq. There will be a digital quadrature
generation circuit comprised of a single dual D flip-flop that should
function over most of the HF bands (I hope). I am initially going to
try 74S and/or 74F series logic, but may need to go ECL stuff for the higher
bands. I layed out a PCB pattern last nite for the TTL quadrature circuit.
Right now I am looking at a variant of a Vackar oscillator with
varactor tuning. (I don't like mechanical tuning caps). We'll see how that
turns out as far as stability and phase noise goes.
Anyway, I post updates as I make progress.
