Welcome to the HamPiRadio Home page. The HamPi16 is a 16 band LF/HF/VHF Amateur Radio project for the home constructor. In the initial project the RX & TX works on all HF bands (160m to 10m) plus the 50mHz and 70mHz bands (6m & 2M). On receive it works on the two LF bands 160 & 475 kHz and VHF 144mHz. In the future the LF and VHF Rf Amplifiers and switching will be developed in a separate housing, and other fancy things such as a waterfall display. The emphasis on the initial project has been quality basics of the receiver and transmitter. This is a project you are encouraged to get involved with for ongoing developments and improvement.
Below are two short videos of comparisons on-air (with an out of date LCD display). The first is comparing an Issue 1.0 HamPi with a Yeasu FT902DM, known for their great receiver. The second is of HamPi and the ICOM IC-7300. Not bad results at all. For more comprehensive technical comparisons see the Test Results page. Note also the new HamPi peak reading S-meter.
Bare printed circuit boards are available now in New Zealand and the UK (Europe) and can be ordered as sets of 6. See the SHOP page for more details. Further down the page are more pictures of the ongoing project. See the other pages for details of each board / module.
