Allan Esterhuizen?how well did the old Cybernet cb work with the DDS unit ( I assume you were indicating a mk1 Cybernet which is a crystal synth radio ) I have been toying with trying a DDS in a couple of old mk1 Cybernet radios myself , one is a very nice performing Midland 13-892 , another is a sidewinder with pretty much identical innards
Michael Kane?I have experimented with early Xtal synth and later PLL mixer Xtals. They all work well, although in all honesty I have to sometimes question my sanity when I have modern Amateur gear that does more. All these mods have been for 28mhz. I find it all fun though, and old CB are cheap to find and work well.
Allan Esterhuizen?Michael Kane?My old midland is also a fairly sensitive radio and it even still looks good with its original mic as well , it is one of the reasons I was toying with the idea of using a dds in it
Dick Smith?Bought as a kit ?
Martin Fraser?two modules from ebay and a bit of programming
Michael Kane?For simple DDS, PIC controlled look up VK5TM Terry. You need to calculate values & program PIC. It uses the cheap AD9850 DDS
Michael Kane?I have one of the Adafruit also. This is the one that is GPS disiplined and controlled by Arduino micro. Output a bit dirty, but filters fix this.
