The first major project of 2013 was to build the SoftRock Lite II receiver kit. I got two of these, gave one to Josh (KE7MTF) for his birthday/xmas gift. We both built them for 20 meters but I did purchase extra toroids so we can rebuild for other bands (the kits come with all the other parts). I have to say, that was not the easiest kit to build nor was it the hardest. It was tiny and I have come to realize that I’m not 20 anymore.

So now I’ve got a working software defined receiver. Now I just need to explore the software possibilities.
