About the Penelope Module
Penelope (DUCk) 1/2-watt transmitter/exciter board is a good companion to the Mercury HF direct sampling receiver board.
The Atlas (bus) compatible Penelope transmitter uses Digital Up Conversion (DUC) techniques and
process the I and Q signal from the PC (or Sasquatch DSP board) directly without the need for a sound card.
Pennylane is a Penelope update with the only difference how the output power is controled.
Pennylane is idential to the transmitter on the Hermes board.
The project leader for the board is Phil VK6APH with KK7P doing the PCB layout.
