Rotary encoder for ATS transceiver series

This equipment is dedicated for an easier control of the popular mini-transceiver AT Sprint known by ham radio operators as ATS (series ATS-2, ATS-3, A, B, B.1 compatible). Originally the ATS has just four push buttons on the top cover and in combination with the paddle it is possible to send all commands to ATS including the tuning, scanning etc. After connecting the rotary encoder accessory module an easy tune, scan and other functions are available as same as on the big size desktop transceivers. Comfort and operation is much higher even with this mini transceiver.

Make a Sound Card with PCM2704

This article relates to my previous article Make a sound card with PCM2702. In this time I used newer IC from Texas Instruments PCM2704. Thanks to this circuit with all necessary features inside 28pins SSOP package I was able to built quite small sound card. The result is sound card with size of gumstick.
