I’m happy to announce that we’ve begun some limited testing of the new ID-O-Matic III, which will be replacing the ID-O-Matic II kit soon.
The ID-O-Matic III is the same size and shape as the existing kit, but adds a number of new features. The most obvious is the new USB interface replacing the older . . . → Read More: ID-O-Matic III Announcement
I delayed this a few days so no one would think anything is an April fool’s joke.
Early last week I received a packet of prototype circuit boards and did some soldering. I can now say with a fair degree of certainty that a couple of things will be happening in April:
I will . . . → Read More: April HamGadgets News
This one is very late coming, but it’s been pretty busy here!
I was out of PicoKeyer kits for a while back in February due to delays in getting the PIC chips from suppliers. I’m back up and running now, with kits ready to ship and all backorders caught up. Along the way, I did . . . → Read More: March HamGadgets News
Lots of things going on at HamGadgets lately!
I’m continuing to work on the new repeater controller. I expect to have a couple of prototypes out for testing some time this month, after doing a little further debugging. The one I’ve been using here for testing and development is working quite well, though I’ve identified . . . → Read More: It was a busy January!
We’re well into the holiday season! If you have a ham on your gift shopping list (even if that ham happens to be you), now’s the time to place your order.
Shipping to locations outside the USA is not a safe bet, mostly due to Customs delays that seem to be common around this time . . . → Read More: December HamGadgets News
Note: When I first wrote this post, I thought the scope data here was from an ID-O-Matic II. The more I thought about it, I realized this was not the case — it was from an early prototype of the new repeater controller. The ID-O-Matic II shouldn’t be much (if any) worse than this.

My, how time flies when you’re having fun! It seems I missed the October newsletter altogether. Well, not a lot happened — people placed orders, I shipped orders, I worked on a couple of new products. Mundane stuff, really.
As we move into the holiday season, as well as “building season”, I have a few . . . → Read More: November HamGadgets News
Greetings from the still dry central US! If you’re south of here, it looks like you may need a snorkel before long. We were in Kansas City Friday afternoon and evening, and thought we might need pontoons for the trip home.
Summer is always a slow time around here. True to form, July and August . . . → Read More: September HamGadgets News
I thought I’d give a brief update on the status of a project that’s been in the works for a while now. I have been working, off and on, on a new repeater controller. It’s a logical extension of the work I’ve done with the ID-O-Matic, but with far more capability. I intend for it . . . → Read More: Project status: New repeater controller
Happy summer, everyone! (except our friends Down Under — happy winter!)
Lots of news this time around. Although we were not at the Hamvention this year, I did run a sale that week so people didn’t have to miss out on saving a little money. We have not made a decision about Dayton next year, . . . → Read More: June HamGadgets News
