This weekend between various Holiday and other activities I improved the
little program I use to send the received frequency from Linrad to my
FT1000, as described in a previous email, so that the FT1000 acts as the
transmitting part of a Linrad transceiver.
The program now lets you alter the default settings to be sent to the
FT1000 for MHz and the 100 KHz place, to allow for different transverter
configurations, and to cover the two meter band more completely. The
program also allows one to adjust the x.yz KHz offset if need be to
correct for variations in transverter drift, etc. You can see a gif
file of the Windows control panel the program uses at:
If anyone is interested I can supply the source for this (it's Visual
Basic), as well as for the [minimal] modifications needed to Linrad to
make this work.
The program is rudimentary at present, but it works well.
Comments/Suggestions will be much appreciated. At some point I hope to
get the time to put more about this on my webpage, but...
Merry Christmas to all
