Xiegu GSOC Update

I’ll post more about this in the coming days, but I updated the firmware in the GSOC controller this weekend and am now testing the new functionality. A few features have been added and a few bugs fixed. I’m still finding CW operation a bit tricky–I believe there may still be some latency in the sidetone audio.  For updates, follow the tag: GSOC

Bioenno Power Thanksgiving Sale

I find the 4.5 aH 12V Bioenno LiFePo battery to be the perfect portable power source for my 12V radio gear.

Just a heads up that Bioenno Power is having a 2020 Thanksgiving sale and offering a 10% discount with the coupon code “THANKS”.

I’m a huge fan of Bioenno’s batteries and just pulled the trigger on yet another LiFePo battery. This time, a compact 3 aH battery. This will be more than enough battery to play QRP for hours without recharging.

Side note: I’m also working on a project for my parents converting their living room lamp into a DC LED lamp with battery backup. Their power outages seem to be so frequent as of late, I know they’ll appreciate a lamp that will work regardless if the power grid is up or not. I’ve already purchased a 12V LED Edison-style bulb and now will pair it with a 4.5 aH Bioenno battery.
