If you prefer to control the DDS module from a PC (instead of using a PIC), try this:
Download PCVFO.ZIP (18K)
The zip archive contains a single file, VFO.EXE. It is a DOS program but it runs fine in a Windows 95/98 “DOS bubble” as well (see screenshots above).
Are you looking for a DDS based 136 kHz longwave transmitter exciter?
Have a look at G0MRF’s page
- Start-up frequency: 137.00000 kHz
- Tuning range: 135.70000 to 137.80000 kHz in 0.25 Hz steps
- DFCW offset: 0 to 50 Hz adjustable in 0.25 Hz steps
- The dial can be locked to prevent inadvertent QSY
- Calibration: +/- 200 ppm, stored in EEPROM.
- Actual DDS output frequency is 4 * dial frequency
Schematic and source code for the PIC controller is available here:
Download the PIC program lwex.zip
The encoder inputs also have internal pull-ups in the PIC.
The switches “LOCK”, “DFCW” and “CAL” are momentary pushbuttons.
