Dear OMs and YLs!

I deeply regret to announce that I can no longer offer kits and devices. For several years (or are we talking about decades?) Germany and the European Union have been governed by people whose sanity I have serious doubts about. New laws, regulations and guidelines are constantly being passed, which make it impossible, especially for developers who only carry out their work as a sideline or as a hobby, to maintain operations at a cost-covering level without having to plunge into bureaucracy (and therefore considerable costs).

Those who come up with this anti-business nonsense (i.e. the highly paid bureaucrats in Berlin and Brussels) always provide supposedly “sensible” reasons why this is so. People want to protect “the environment,” “the climate,” etc. etc. We are currently protecting ourselves to death, but no one ever protects liberty. When it comes to climate, I’m also wondering how one wants to protect the arithmetic mean of the weather events of the last 30 years (that’s how the term “climate” in scientifically defined!).

A striking example of the current legal strangling of free entrepreneurship: In 2022, a German law translated as “Electrical Equipment Act” (in German abbreviated as ElektroG) was amended and of course tightened. This set of standards regulates the disposal and return of electrical devices. This also includes kits and finished equipment in  the amateur radio sector. The legal nonsense passed in 2022 would make it mandatory for me to take back and dispose of every single assembly and every device, no matter how small, after the user does not longer need it, it has become defective or similar. In addition, I would have to register with a specific organization in order to display this (WEEE registration). This registration is of course also subject to a charge. Because of the idiotic and completely useless bureaucracy has to be paid and the bureaucrats who warm their comfortable office chairs every day (of course only from Monday to noon on Friday noon) but who do contribute absolutely nothing to the economical benefit of this country also want to be paid well.

I would therefore like to thank all customers who have purchased products with me over the recent years. I really enjoyed developing, building and selling the circuits and, above all, having friendly and interesting “tech talks” with you all!

Si5351 Universal VFO/LO for multiband transceiver

This VFO/LO can be used for a multiband transceiver project. It covers 160m, 80m, 40m, 20m, 17m, 15m, 12m and 10m band. The software can drive either a Nokia5110 b/w display or an ST7735 colored unit. There 8 driver stages for setting band relays in a band pass filter unit (BPF) and (in parallel) the low pass filters following the final amplifier stage.

If a gain controlled transmitter amplifier is used, the VFO provides a gain value (DC voltage) that can be set manually for each band individually to compensate gain loss when higher bands are used. A T/R relay also is on board.

Analog inputs are freely configureable: User keys, S-Value, TX output power measurement, indicator for TX mode. More on request!

Power supply is 12 to 14V DC.

AD9951 VFO module (0.1 to 60MHz)

These oscillators are really high-performance concerning usable bandwidth AND signal purity. They can be used to build a VFO with a large frequency span (up to 60MHz with on-board 200MHz clock oscillator or higher depending on master clock rate).

3 Versions are available:

  • AD9951 with ATMega328 MCU
  • AD9951, no MCU, no amplifier (“bare bones”)
  • AD9951 with INA52063 amplifier, no MCU

For more details, please refer to the respective article in English.

Main features of this project:

  • Integrated DDS-chip: AD9951.
  • Max. output frequency: 60MHz.
  • Output waveform: Sinewave.
  • Supply voltage: 5V (3.3V on request).
  • Master clocks that can be used must be 3.3V types. All clock rates between 50 and 400 MHz are allowed. For oscillators with lower frequencies the software that you will get for free when buying the module contains a clock multiplier routine. For example with an 100MHz oscillator you can achieve a 400MHz clock rate.
  • Output impedance: 50 ohms, low pass filtered.
  • Output voltage: 500mV approx., +/- 3 dB over full bandwidth without INA52063 amplifier, about 2Vpp. with INA52063.

Version 1: Complete VFO with microcontroller on board

Universal DDS VFO (f_max = 60 MHz) for use in homemade QRP transceiver
Universal DDS VFO (f_max = 60 MHz) for use in homemade QRP transceiver with MCU (ATMega168 or 328) on board.

This board contains an AD9951 DDS chip by Analog devices and an ATMega168 (ATMega328 available on request, add +1.5€/USD) or other MCU (please ask for pricing!)

All connectors not used for the DDS are connected to header strips so that they can be accessed by the user which makes this board very versatile.


  • 110 to 125 €/USD ready-to-use module (depending on MCU of your choice)
