Tonight I managed to install the photo gallery module here on the nanoKeyer website and uploaded a few photos taken during the building of my development prototypes. I start to like all those neat fancy wordpress features, hi !
I hope you enjoy the photos. I would be happy to receive some photos from other builders that I could upload to the site.
I also managed to combine YouTube videos with the gallery – scroll down to the bottom of the page below the gallery.
Before people start asking for the enclosure details – actually any extruded aluminum enclosure for 10x10cm PCB’s with approx. 5cm height should work.
I sourced mine from www.reichelt.de
Manufacturer is: “Fischer Elektronik” Germany.
Reichelt Order No. KOH-100 (for the lid)
Reichelt Order No. KOH-6100 (for the main enclosure body holding the PCB)
Reichelt Order No. DPL-0-6 (the front/rear face plates + screws)
Reichelt Order No. KNOPF 17-6 AL (aluminum-Knob for 6mm axis)
Due to the reported delays in the PCB fabrication the documentation for the newer REV C boards is temporarily taken offline since I still want to tweak some wording here and there in the building instructions to make it more user friendly.
Also I still need to prepare the preconfigured and adapted K3NG firmware for the REV C version so that I can share it on this site.
Both files (building instructions and firmware) for REV C will be made available soon again on the Downloads Section before the kits become available.
I am still waiting for the next delivery of the REV C PCB’s to arrive here from the fabricating house. Since they are manufactured overseas the shipping and custom clearance times are always a bit unpredictable.
So far the first batch of REV C PCB’s has only be used for building the prototype and making the documentation and some have been distributed with some beta tester hams in my neighbourhood to see how reproducable the kits are.
I expect kit availability mid March. Please be patient. I will announce availability here.
All REV B kits on stock were gone on eBay. I have only one very last one left. Please contact me if you are interested in this very last REV B kit…
