If you're after some software to use this hardware, check out the USRP Interfaces.
Much of what is at the bottom in the RF wiki table has been done with a USRP 1 and WBX daughterboard.
- Cigarette lighter double adapter draws 20mA @ 12.0V, 32mA @ 13.2V
Tested with HP 8640B with AM modulation of music, audio demodulation by Winrad, and human 'can just hear it' response:
|Frequency (MHz)||Connection||HP Output Level|
|74.202||Directly to HP||-110dBm|
|14.202||Via +60MHz transverter||-110dBm + half turn of dial|
- HP power output dial turns a fraction over three-quarters of a revolution (between coarse output level and next strongest level up).
- For AM with constant tone through transverter, only quarter turn of dial is required.
XO drift is shown by flat top of the green Peak Hold line. This visualises the 'max' of the peak that slowly moves left and right as the XO changes frequency (12 PPM). From this, one can deduce the oscillator (in-)stability.
The references is a pure sine wave @ 65MHz generated by the classic HP-8640B.
Notice that the width of the spectrum in the FFT Plot is very, very narrow, and the period of the I/Q waves in the Scope Plot indicate a very large period.
