The radio from Australia/Nik I think you mean the Genesis http://genesisradio.com.au. If you are going to do the G40, G160 and G2030 which are fixed frequency LO and sound card only they will be a lot like the earlier Softrocks, but with TX using COM ports so same logically as a V6.2 Softrock RXTX. However Nik has included a nice add on in the design of image supression capabilities in the hardware a link is here http://www.genesisradio.com.au/G40/10assemblyG40.html for those who had not heard about this. I think you mentioned you might do/have done some of this in software but this might be worth noting. The Genesis G59 is a USB but PIC not AVR controlled Si570 so a different firmware is used but I think is based on the http://home.ict.nl/~fredkrom/pe0fko/ExtIO_Si570/ dll that winrad expects. I asked Nik if he would have api doc or hex available and I'd build a skeleton interface to check but it isn't available and I am already building too much in too little time.

Maybe someone else in the group might be able to give you access to a G59 or LD1?

Let's see - I should be able to feed the TX I+Q back through the receiver to check the quality of the TX data, so for the time being I'm OK. For me to text the TRX I'll use the MOBOKIT.

 

The TX plans are:

 

1) Actually generate I+Q for TX

2) Provide full MOBOKIT support

 

The MOBOKIT could be a very exciting transceiver :)

 

I'll then add TRX support for other radios such as Lazy Dog and Nick's radio from Australia. But first I have bugs to fix and from May 3rd to 17th I'm away on holiday as GD4ELI.

After I have finished obtaining the LPF output TX figures from it for Tony Parks and boxed it up I will probably not use it again until after the summer so do you want me to send you the finished Ensemble Softrock RXTX I had built? The one I built was for 80m/40m so should be fine for EU. It will have the save firmware as the V9.0 RX you have and the TX/PTT control is the same as a V6.3.
