Re: Hyper-Cricket at 12 volts?
As someone mentioned, the main reason for making the Cricket work on 12 volts is just to have it run in the shack without wasting 9 volt batteries. My suggestion is to build a simple 9 volt regulator that has a snap connector on the output and a powerpole (or whatever) on the input. There would be no mods made to the Cricket and, when desired, a 12 volt power supply could be used to power it. All the parts (regulator and a couple of capacitors) would easily fit into a 35 mm film can (remember them?) or a small pillbox. With the current levels we are talking about, no heat sinks would be required.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
