GE524 – 2 to 30 MHz CW,LSB,USB and AM TRX.
This transceiver, manufactured in the '70s by Bharat Electronics, Bangalore, was originally built for fixed frequency channel operation using plug-in Xtals but the best part of this rig is that it has an input for external VFO, which is my main interest.
The TRX chain uses 2 IF stages and the Side Band filter is a Collins 455KHz Mechanical Filter.
I just love this rig and have worked many DX.
Initially I used a simple Colpitts VFO for single band (40Mtrs) but at present I have built a DDS using AD9850/ AD9851 and am able to cover all the HF bands.
