Si5351A Shield for the Arduino - £ 29.95 each
Due to the huge success of this Kit at FDIM (Four Days In May @ Dayton) we have a very limited quantity left.
So please email and I will invoice on a first come basis. New kits are due in stock within the next 7 to 10 days.
For details of the Si5351a Arduino Shield, Click Here and go to Paul m0xpd's blog for full details.
In the meantime whilst not try out this great little chip, by using the breakout board below, Paul m0xpd has even written a basic sketch so as to generate VFO and BFO Signals for a Superhet. Check out his blog. http://m0xpd.blogspot.co.uk/

Receiver Shield for the Arduino - £ 23.95 each
The Kanga / m0xpd Arduino Rx Shield is a simple Direct Conversion receiversub-system for the HF bands. It is offered as an Arduino “shield”, allowing a complete receiver to be assembled from an Arduino single board computer (UNO or MEGA) and an appropriate RF generator (either the Kanga / m0xpd DDS Shield or the new Kanga / m0xpd Si5351 Shield). Optionally, the Kanga / m0xpd Tx Shield can also be added to form a complete CW Transceiver.
The Rx shield will operate on any HF band – the band is selected by an external band-pass filter on the input (NOT SUPPLIED).Example software (Arduino “sketches”), including code for the full CW transceiver, is available for download from the m0xpd blog. The Rx shield may also be used as the foundation of a conventional receiver, independent of an Arduino or any such digital system, in which case only a VFO signal (plus band-pass filter) is required.

The Si5351A clock generator breakout from Adafruit! - £7.95 each
This chip has a precision 25MHz crystal reference and internal PLL and dividers so it can generate just about any frequency, from <8KHz up to 150+ MHz. The Si5351A clock generator is an I2C controller clock generator. It uses the onboard precision clock to drive multiple PLL's and clock dividers using I2C instructions. By setting up the PLL and dividers you can create precise and arbitrary frequencies. There are three independent outputs, and each one can have a different frequency. Outputs are 3Vpp,

Arduino Projects & Kits
Arduino "Sudden TX Shield" - £24.95 each
Fits neatly onto the Arduino DDS shield shown below, to enable a Multi-band transmitter (according to BPF fitted) to be created. See Paul m0xpd blog at: http://m0xpd.blogspot.co.uk/ for further information
See the Arduino page for further information.
Mode - CW (other modes possible)
Variable CW Speed (Paddle & Automated Calls)
Click Here for the latest update on software and information complimenting Paul m0xpd artical in latest SPRAT - "Occam's Microcontroller" , i.e. new version of the code has been produced, due to the fact that original LCD used is no longer available.
The new version allows the use of a 16*4 alphanumeric LCD + I2C interface module. These are available on the Arduino page. Please note!! You will need the correct LCD Library installed to ensure correct operation of the LCD.

The "Kanga" K14 Keyer - £14.95 each
This kit is a inexpensive single IC Morse Code Keyer/Processor which can be used either in contesting or casual use.
It is based on the very popular K14 I.C. developed by Steve Elliot K1EL who has kindly allowed Kanga Products to produce their own PCB.
"The K14 Keyer has many original features, and with a PCB measuring 38mm x 35 mm it is small enough to fit inside a transceiver".

The K14 Keyer from Kanga Products is still a current version.The new K16 IC available from K1EL (Hamcrafters) is an amended version of the K14 to resolve a problem with the Battery version they sell.
There are no new or additional functions in the K16 IC.
