Re: JUMA PA1000 Linear Amplifier

Initial encouragement by Freescale in the choice of the device was strong but experience has revealed problematic levels of harmonic energy at the output. Freescale now acknowledge this problem to be significant when using these devices at HF. They have quoted H3 at -7dBc and H5 at -13dBc being the...

Re: Juma TRX2A - Voltage supply problem in Main Board

Saku, Good progress :D +5V is fine now. Most probably something is loading the +10V rail and the regulator REG2 is in current limit state. If it is overload, you should feel heat when touching the REG2. Pin 7 voltage will also go down if regulator is in current limit state. 1V output voltage indicat...

Re: Juma TRX2A Low Mic Gain. Problem solved.

Robert,

Good to hear that :D

Readjust now the SSB gain trimmer R26 for 10W peak RF ouput. Typical proper value is in the middle position approx 25kohm which can be measured with ohm meter when TRX2 is OFF.

Enjoy QSOs with your JUMA TRX2.

Happy New Year

Re: TRX2 Microphonics

John, During the design phase I tested several cap types for C4...C7 and C12...C15. Murata GRM31M5C1H473JA01D (grey in color) caps performed very well. I wonder if the brown caps you got with the kit are Murata type. Your modification idea is good. I have also sketched quite similar circuits. You ar...

Re: Juma TRX2A - Voltage supply problem in Main Board

Saku, By default ICs are not broken if you have not overstressed them with wrong polarity or some other "brutal" way. Additionally LP2951 is not very sensitive for ESD. There has not been any problems in TRX2 voltage regulators. You must have something wrong. Check carefully visually every...

Re: TRX2 Microphonics

John, The AF gain is huge but typically there has not been problems with acoustic feedback. I guess you have tested with an external speaker. Is it ok? Please check that the main board capacitors C4...C7 and C12...C15 are right G0G type. The G0G color is grey compared to the X7R brown color. X7R typ...

Re: Juma TRX2A Low Mic Gain

I have 0.9 volts on the electric mic hot side Robert, Something is wrong with the electret mic biasing or in the mic or in the wiring. The mic "hot side" voltage should be much more than 0.9V. Typical electret mic current is 200uA...300uA. That means 3V...4V on mic hot side. Please check ...

Re: JUMA PA1000 Linear Amplifier

Hello Kevin and Ron, Nice to hear that you are interested in Juma PA1000. I appreciate all your comments. Ron, I understand your comment on the separate RF section. The reason to the design is that I am seeking simplicity and reproducibility because I like it and I don't like the popular hassle cons...

Re: Where are TRX2 Noise Blanker and Voice Memory located?

Daniel, 1. Noise Blanker option has not been launched. The intented location in the main board is (was) the pin header between Polyphase and 1st filter. We made few Noise Blanker prototypes but we did not get good enough results. The technical reason is that the bandwidth is too narrow to detect fas...
