A complete HPSDR transceiver in a Pandora Box
The goal with this project was to assemble a complete 100 Watt 160 to 6 meter HPSDR rig using avialable HPSDR components. The computer and power supply were not included because a HPSDR station could be mobile operating from the vehicle's battery and controlled by a high end lap top computer. At the W9KFB shack this rig is powered by an Astron RS-35M power supply and the computer used has an Intel Core2 Quad CPU Q8200 2.32 GHz. 3.24 GB of RAM with Physical Address Extension. The operating system is Microsoft windows professional, Version 2002 with Service Pack 3. PowerSDR version 1.19.3 is used to demonstrate that versions built-in support of the Hercules 100 Watt Amplifier. Also note that CW operations are aided by using K1EL's Winkeyer USB.
