Radio Electronics Projects - Hans Summers G0UPL

"I am not a professional electronics engineer, nor do I have an electronics degree. I make no claims for technical accuracy, good design, or necessarily even originality for the contents of these pages.

Low power QRSS beacon - Hans Summers G0UPL

Rather, I am a simple enthusiast attempting to convey my love and enjoyment of radio, electronics, laptops and computing and perhaps to inspire YOU to build something too."

This ultra-low power QRSS beacon was designed to be as efficient as possible, and produce a milliwatt or few from low voltage, low current supply. My intention was to investigate the use of natural power sources to operate the beacon.

Steve G0XAR visited the G0UPL shack and took some photos of proceedings. Combined with a sneakily obtained photo of G0UPL sleeping somewhere in Texas en-route to Ozarkcon 2007, G0XAR produced this very nice QSL card suggestion!
