Presentation Title

Pixie Transceiver

Format of Presentation

Poster to be presented the Friday of the conference

Abstract

A 7MHz (40m band) radio transceiver was constructed and tested. The transceiver was tested and characterized for power consumption, output, transmission distance, interference, signal gain, and attenuation on the antenna. Upon completion of successful testing the transceiver will be then miniaturized using surface mount technology. Surface mount components should decrease the area and also reduce interference in the circuit. The project is meant to provide a low cost, interesting, surface mount project for future students.
