Few weeks ago I learned about the Omnia SDR project, which is a newly released softrock type transceiver kit. It has an on-board USB audio codec, which I consider to be a significant advantage, making it suitable to be used with embedded linux computer boards that do not have a good on-board audio codec. However, for me the Omnia SDR will form the basis for a remote controlled SDR transceiver, which I think will be a natural continuation of my remote rig project.

Few days ago, I have been playing with CuteSDR on Linux and Mac and came to think, would this work on a Raspberry Pi? While there is nothing conceptually impossible about running CuteSDR on the Raspberry Pi 2, I often run into obstacles trying to port Qt application to embedded devices, so here are my notes about how to make it work.

First RF signal all the way through the mcHF.
Now it’s time to read through all the mods and have the radio tuned up 🙂
Every now and then, I get a good idea that makes my life easier. I let the pictures speak for themselves 🙂
Few weeks ago I have decided to resume building my mcHF kit. I have made good progress with the RF board and today I have tested the low-pass and band-pass filters.

After completing the UI board I really wanted to see it work and test it one way or other without the RF board.

Last night I mounted the LEDs, the electrolytic capacitors and the LCD panel. I am using the HY28B which is why the display doesn’t align with the push buttons.

I forgot to post this update but I did make some progress since the last report in June. Finished mounting all connectors, buttons and encoders, see photos below.

Last night I finished mounting all the small parts on the UI board and today the board got cleaned of extra flux (there was a lot).

All parts have now arrived and I am soooo ready to build my mcHF
