[hpsdr-dev] Odyssey Siren A success



Is there a website where this experiement is described? I tried TAPR but 
couldn't find anything.

    We had a complete breakthrough on the Odyssey Siren in the past two
    weeks. It will be used in Suitsat 2, in a terrestrial linear repeater
    experiment by Viktor Kudielka OE1VKW and friends, who supported its
    development, and we are already leaping all over the place to
    applications.

    Frank Brickle and I will be doing our SDR code on it over the next
    several days. The board as shown in the schematic needs some
    modifications to fix the 3 - ish volt power supply for the Codec and a
    modified oscillator circuit but we are certain it will all work now.

    On the 10.7 MHz IF, I measured 0 dBm max into a 50 ohm load and less
    than -120 dBm MDS and > 80 dB dynamic range. This is with a BOM of <
    $50 in parts and about a $20 dsp pic chip!

    Yesterday in Rick's lab, with W2GPS, K3IO, we made the above
    measurements, hacked on code and turn the thing into a bent pipe
    transponder. I also did the hilbert transform to make it an inverting
    transponder. It all worked perfectly.

    has detected audio in an SDR-IQ SDR as well as captured IF from the
    SDR-IQ of the transponder. We have to balanced for image and do DC
    offset correction but the thing works and sounds great as you can hear
    for yourself!
