Hermes 2m/4m

Postby Tony EI7BMB » Sat May 27, 2017 10:50 am

Was listening to the team speak session this morning and was interested to hear that consideration is being given to putting a 2m capability on the Hermes board . I wonder if does this mean just a firmware change or will it only apply to newly made Hermes with updated components ?

Would 4m also be possible ?

As always thanks to the team for the ongoing work which leads to new and exciting features.

Kjell kindly replied on the email list

"Hi EI7BMB

There will be a complete new layout of Hermes so 2M is only available with the new board. There will be a hardware modification using Under Sampling on 2 meter.

4 meter will not be included.

More information is going to be given on the OpenHPSDR reflector soon.

73, Kjell"

Dave KV0S kindly asked Phil for an update on this project on team speak this morning. The Hermes 2 board will have 4m and 2m although it has been decided that 4 and 2 will work on a separate module to the main board. I'm guessing this means it could become available as a HF only board for guys who don't need 4 and 2m . Exiting times ahead for VHF guys like me .

Thanks for sharing that Tony. It's hard to keep up with all that's going on!
