Chinese Rockmite clone

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Super-RM-Rock-Mite-QRP-DIY-Kit-CW-Transceiver-Telegraph-Shortwave-HAM-Radio-/161128835976

Well the RM clone arrived. No SMT mixer, beefier PA and a PC interface (interested in trying this out)

The sites images of it built are:




The kit sent images are (It took 15 days to get here) :

Box about 6" x 3" x 3"

 Components all in a couple of plastic bags

 Nice looking double side PCB



I'll build and have it up and running shortly.

Some components were missing:

11.0592MHz crystal
All the electrolytic caps (1uF, 10uF, 100uF, 470uF)
470pF capacitors

I have these in the junk box but bit frustrating not complete. Build is simple enough... (hour before work this morning) should be testing soon.

Hi, curious how did the testing go? Did it work on RX/TX and what are the first impressions? Any better than original Rockmite?

For the missing parts, if you bought it from ebay, you can usually email the seller about the missing parts so they send them to you.

TNX, 73! Paul VA3PAW

I bought a fully assembled unit from eBay recently. I have been testing it out and so far other than the very high pitch tone on RX (which can be filtered out with my ancient MFJ CWF-2) it has been pretty good. Keep us posted!
