Spectrum snapshot by Greg, ZL3IX
Alpha 3 board

Mercury is a 0-65MHz Direct Sampling Receiver.

Perhaps the most exciting of all the modules, the Mercury board enables direct sampling of the 0-65MHz spectrum. Based on a Linear Technology LTC2208 130MSPS 16-bit A/D converter[1] the board downsamples in its own Altera Cyclone III FPGA to 250 kSPS or less for transfer over the Atlas bus to the USB interface on the OZY board.

The project leaders for the Mercury board were Phil Harman, VK6APH and Philip Covington, N8VB.

NOTE: Mercury is no longer available from TAPR.
