Those of you who follow these blog posts & newsletters may have noticed that there was no February post. We returned from our vacation to start working our way through a huge pile of orders, thanks to a very nice QST review of the PicoKeyer-Plus kit. Along the way I ran out of cabinets… then . . . → Read More: March HamGadgets News
The PicoKeyer-Plus kit received a very good review in the Feb. 2012 issue of QST magazine. There is a link in the article to the Youtube video I included in a post a couple of weeks ago.
Of course this came out a few days before we left on a week’s vacation! I’m still working . . . → Read More: PicoKeyer-Plus Kit in Feb. 2012 Issue of QST
Several years after the last firmware changes to the PicoKeyer-RM, that product is getting a pretty major update.
The new chip will not require the installation of the 1/8 Watt pull-up resistor, as the current one does. I’ve also changed the embedded message commands to be the same as for the PicoKeyer-Plus, and have simplified . . . → Read More: The PicoKeyer-RM is getting a major facelift
Happy New Year! I hope 2011 was a good year for all of you, and I hope that 2012 will be even better. I want to thank every one of you for helping to make the past few years very interesting and enjoyable.
Looking back on 2011, it was a pretty good year for HamGadgets. . . . → Read More: January 2012 HamGadgets News
Check out what George, N0JRJ posted to YouTube last week. Thanks, George! Awesome job!
And George isn’t the only one, either. Apparently our friends at ARRL HQ like the PicoKeyer-Plus also.
It has come to my attention that, for at least a couple of weeks now, it has not been possible to create a new account on the web site. You could still place an order without an account. I have fixed this problem, so you can now create an account, subscribe to the newsletter, etc. . . . → Read More: Account creation bug fixed
It’s getting closer to the holidays, and of course that means it’s time to be letting your friends and family know what you really want. I’m working to make sure I have kits and keyers on hand and shipped quickly so that everyone gets their deliveries on time. If you’re DX, all I can say . . . → Read More: December 2011 HamGadgets News
Wherever you are, I hope the weather is better for you than it is here! This morning started out with rain, then progressed to ice pellets, then what i can only call “snow blobs” falling from the sky. I think we’re back to rain now, but it surely has made a mess of the leaves . . . → Read More: November 2011 HamGadgets News
I know some of you have been patiently waiting for your UKA-3 kit. And I thank you for that!
After receiving the final prototype, I discovered a couple of minor changes I needed to make. One trace was omitted from the board. I also need to adjust the values of two resistors — the power . . . → Read More: UKA-3 Update
I believe I have fixed a setting that was resulting in many DX customers having to use PayPal to pay for their order. Card holder address verification does not work with many non-US credit cards, and this seems to have resulted in some cards getting declined when they should not have been. I believe I . . . → Read More: DX customers and credit cards
