My thoughts on a firmware-implemented AGC for the X1M

13 May

One of the sadder omissions in the otherwise full-featured X1M PRO transceiver is the lack of AGC and an S-meter. There are hardware boards that have been developed to provide these functions, but there isn’t much room inside for a bunch of add-0n boards, and, besides, we plan to install this very powerful little Arduino Nano, right? So why not let it be an AGC controller and an S-meter provider that’s remotely settable and monitorable over the CAT link? That’s what I wrote about today here. Your comments are welcome.
