Many thanks to Robert Gulley (AK3Q) who notes that Black Cat Systems has developed a simple 22 meter beacon kit. The price is $20 shipped! A few details:
The kit includes the PCB and components, including a custom programmed microcontroller that will continuously transmit the ID / callsign of your choice, up to 8 characters, at about 13 wpm.
Small size – just 2 7/8 by 1 1/2 inches. Easy to build, just a few components, all through hole, no surface mount.
When ordering you note your callsign/ID to send and it will be pre-programmed.
Black Cat Systems has all kit details including full instructions on their website (click here to read).
If you like the idea of building a beacon, you must also check out the beacon Dave (AA7EE) built recently–a true work of art!
