Masterton

Travelled in our motorhome from Palmerston North to Greytown just a bit South East of Masterton. A couple of days on the road before heading back next Wednesday. Nice sunny weather this afternoon. Its quite cold here this evening. Tho we have a heater so its not freezing.
When we get back, Maria will finish packing for her trip to UK on Friday next week. She is visiting family for 7 weeks.

Spent sometime reading up on the WSPR transmitter kit that I ordered from https://shop.qrp-labs.com  

All the control and timing is on board. It even has a second RF out to run a receiver, that should work OK, with a bit of hardware hacking. I have also ordered the OCXO synth as it looks like it will be more stable for digital modes.

 Need to get on with designing the receiver next. Probably start with a Direct Conversion design and move on to a Superhet if the extra complexity is justified.
