Si5351A Shield for the Arduino - £29.95
Please go to "The Arduino Project Page/Arduino Shields" 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/
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,

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.
