Re: Class E based PSK31
While I don't want to try to throw a wet blanket on anyone's ideas, I have to wonder for *what purpose* this kit offering would be used? The blog shows one for beacon use. Do we really need more beacons? And if so, what possible advantage would this kit provide over the established and very well used beacon mode of WSPR? And if you're going to suggest a WSPR beacon kit for 4sqrp, then I'd advise looking over QRP-Labs offerings by Hans first to make sure something unique is being provided. I'm not at all "anti-beacon" that some hams are, but with WSPR available, do we really need more beacons in our bands?
On the other hand, if this project is being proposed as the
transmit half for two way communication, where is the receive
half? And why should this be used in place of present methods?
Some years ago, many of us used (and I still do) the PSK80/40/20
Warbler series of modules which were complete PSK31 transceivers
and quite useful for communications. Maybe it might be time for
4sqrp to resurrect those designs if blessing of original designer
was obtained -- to me that makes a lot more sense for a useful
4sqrp kit and I suspect there may be some interest and demand for
