PENELOPE - Companion Exciter to Mercury

block diagram of the Penelope DUC

The Penelope digital up converter (DUC) is a 1/2-watt transmitter/exciter board. It makes a good companion to the Mercury HF direct sampling receiver board. When connected to the Atlas (bus) it will process the I and Q signal from the personal computer.

The project leader for the board was Phil VK6APH with KK7P doing the PCB layout.

NOTE: Penelope is being manufactured by Gerd, DJ8AY. It has also been superseded by Pennylane which is available from iQuadLabs
