Hi,

with a little help of John (VK3TVZ) I have upgraded SW for the UHF Weekender and made an ebay listing available on this link (click).

I invite all HAMs to contact me to modify SW so that the Weekender will be usable in your area.

Hi,

due to increased questions/mods etc. I have created Yahoo discussion group called Weekend VHF/UHF radio group that can be reached here.

Group is intended for tech. discussions regarding Weekend VHF/UHF radio and related topics.

Hi all,

Weekend radio was well accepted at Hamradio fair in Friedrichshafen. I have met there many HAM operators, some also from the USA.

Recently I've got enquiry for Weekend radio from the USA and when checking US Band plan I realized that 12.5 kHz step cannot be used. So I have tried 5 kHz step - and DRA818 module worked well, despide datasheet that was saying that only 12.5 and 25 kHz steps can be used. So I thought if this was OK then perhaps I can add also add PMR channels.

Hi All,

I have been playing with the idea how to make a dual-band transceiver with a single DRA module. I had ups and downs and hence no news from my end. Finally I have done a proven amplifier that works well and does help make a dual-band transceiver with a single DRA module. Read more if interested...

Hi all,

 

long time no hear. I hope that you who have purchased our Weekend radio KIT enjoy it.

In the mean time there was a lot of things done around Weekend radio. Among these SW has been developed, not only by me, but also by other members of this Open source community.

As a result Marko S56FGS had upgraded his Arduino SW. Marko has saved all repeater info into EEPROM and thus saved quite some RAM space. Also Marko has made semi dual-band function. As you know DRA modules work also outside specified freq. range but with very limited TX power. But as such RX does receive with slightly degraded specs. also outside declared freq. range.

Hi all,

Weekend project has become a world wide project. JA7LGC Abe has sent to me program to be used in Japan. Namely channels in Japan are different than in the EU. Step frequency is 20 kHz.

Here is what Abe wrote to me: Read more if interested...
