As some of you have been following my blog, I was warned by Jack (AI4SV) that I should not reveal TOO much about my oscillator before I submit my design for publication in QST and QEX. As a result, I will likely only show photos - no schematics of the work that has been done and no PICAXE programs. Sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.
I know there are some on the PICAXE Forum that are clamoring for how I can program a DDS using a PICAXE as there is nothing published. I can assure you that I have successfully programmed both the DDS-60 oscillator and the AD9834-based FCC-2 kit using my interface(albeit with significant noise margin issues). This whole effort started because of the sad reality that the FCC-2 PIC-chip program design died with the passing of the FCC-1/FCC-2 designer.
While I am at Dayton, I am planning to speak with Hendricks Kits about resuscitating the FCC-2 kit as a standalone DDS oscillator, much as the DDS-60 is used.
In any event - I promise that this publication WILL happen - either through QST/QEX, through another QRP group, or this blog. Preferably ALL of them.
