PENELOPE - Companion Exciter to Mercury
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 no longer available from TAPR. It is now being manufactured by Gerd, DJ8AY. Please contact him at g.loch@nt_electronics.de for further details.
