Simpleceiver with an OLED
1/15/2017 ~ You Tube Video of Simpleceiver with the OLED and Si5351. This was made especially for those individuals with fancy smart phones and exotic tablets who could not open the movies below. C'mon guys I am doing all the hard work the least you could do is use a real computer to view this blog!
This video is also being provided for those who tried to put the OLED and Si5351 in a Bitx40 project and had noise problems with noise being generated by the OLED. You can decide about any noise issues after listening to this test with the Simpleceiver.
Late in 2015 I developed a project called the Simpleceiver which was fully documented on this blog. The evolution of the design relied heavily of the use of LT Spice to simulate circuits and to "make" Dual Gate MOSFETs by cascading J310 JFET's. I know of several duplications of this project both in Europe and in Asia. For a display I used a 16X2 LCD.
Fast forward to today where I am now using OLED's in various projects thus the foray into retrofitting the Simpleceiver with an OLED. There are several video that are presented below and you can listen closely to the audio as there have been reports of noise issues when using the OLED's. You be the judge.
The OLED, Si5351 and the Nano offer many possibilities especially for removing analog VFO's (you know the ones that drift) from your old homebrew gear and installing the new technology. A $20 Bill will put you on that road.
