This Finningley SDR Receiver was created for the “Working with SMD” workshop held at the 2010 Finningley Microwave Roundtable.
The receiver introduced as an “Introduction to SMD Construction” as equipment such as multipliers and oscillators now contain SMD components.
The second part of the session was to give Microwavers the opportunity to use SDR receivers and software as a possible medium for future IF builds.
The project was the creation of Bernie Wright G4HJW, along with Kevin Avery G3AAF of the Finningley Amateur Radio Society who sourced the components and allowed the use of the clubs excellent training facilities. Click Here for a copy of the Build Instructions
