Yesterday my Softrock RX Ensemble II HF Receiver arrived from Five Dash Inc. in the US within ten days and was very well packed. Any way like most grown men with a new toy I descided to take the day out and build it, the took me about 15 hours in total. The guide by WB5RVZ is comprehensive and easy enough to follow in a half dozen so steps. I also have a nice box for the Ensemble II RX coming from the KM5H store and it will make it to be a nice looking package.
My SeaSDR_40 kit arrived from Italy. Last night I finished off building the kit together, the is rather easy to put together and the only real thing to watch out for is the toriod with the primary and secondary windings on it, to soldering it in correctly.
I also got the SeaSDR_40 working with Quisk by only having to make a couple minor alterations to the ~/.quisk_conf.py file.
near the top of the file I changed the hardware import
import quisk_hardware_model as quisk_hardware
import quisk_hardware_fixed as quisk_hardware
This will allow you to have frequency shown in Quisk based on the VFO of the SeaSDR_40.
To alter the VFO to that of the SeaSDR_40 change
fixed_vfo_freq = 7056000
fixed_vfo_freq = 7080500
All that is left for me to do is buy a metal box to mount the board into with some socket and connectors.
I reject your reality and substitute my own
