As I’ve alluded to previously, I’m currently working on a BITX-style transceiver, using bi-directional termination insensitive amplifiers in the vein of N6QWs ZIA rig and N2CQR’s BITX DIGI-TIA, with the added challenge of implementing a variable-bandwidth crystal filter. In the process of putting this thing together, I’ve been learning about and experimenting with these so-called termination insensitive amplifiers, and I’ve put together a little video about their characteristics and uses:
This is my first foray into video-making, and I had a great time putting it together. Looking forward to making a few more down the road.
See you on the air!
