QRP Transceiver from CQXIEGU

Various QRP transceiver CQXIEGU from China. The transceivers are classified as "almost finished" supplied kit and have yet to be built together. It is only to mechanical work, there are no soldering required.

X-108 20W QRP-Transceiver


X-108 QRP Transceiver

The X-108 is a single-conversion transceiver for all amateur radio bands from 160-10m. The device provides an output power of 1-20W on all amateur radio bands, including the WARC bands.

In the X-108 transceiver from CQXIEGU now work separate filters. During the X-108 for SSB operation has a 2.4 kHz filter, the ambitious CW operator will appreciate the narrow 500Hz filter for this mode. Likewise, a keyer with adjustable speed is integrated.

The Color-Display of the X-108 ha in contrast of the X1M now a S-Meter and a Power-Meter build in. At the same time the SWR is displayed next to the parameters currently set.

In the Receiver of the X-108 CQXIEGU paid attention to high-quality components, so that this single superhet with the double diode mixer in addition to the excellent dynamic range also offers a low noise receiver. The receiver sensitivity is 0.2μV and double loop band-pass filters ensure a perfect reception on all bands. This is supported by a built-in AGC, a pre-amplifier and an attenuator. Optionally, a Noise Blanker be available (included in the Deluxe version).

The Transmitter provides an output power of max. 20W in the modulation modes AM, USB, LSB and CW. A built-in protection circuit protects the transmitter from a too high SWR and safe X-108 reliably against mismatches. The spurious rejection is ≥ 40dBc. In the standard version, the X-108 of CQXIEGU have a frequency stability of 1.0ppm, which can be improved by an optional TCXO to 0.5ppm (included in the DELUXE version already)

The X-108 has a rear-panel USB port so you can control the small transceiver with a computer. Firmware updates can also uploaded. In addition, there are on the back of the connectors for external accessories and the 12V power supply also.

X1M 5-Band QRP-Transceiver Kit


X1M X1M Front

The transmitter is continous up to 30MHz 'in principle', but there are harmonic filters only for the bands 80/40/20/15/10m. For operation outside of these bands a separate (external) low-pass filter is required.

The supply voltage ranges from 9.6V to 14.5V. While receive, the small radio needs only 350mA, in the case of transmission the power consumption goes up to max. 1200mA.

An automatic CW keyer is built in to the X1M. 2x32 memory channels and a backlight simplify the operation not only in portable use. In addition, the controls can be locked against accidental operation.

A built-in CAT interface makes the X1M also suitable for automatic logging and control. The serial interface (9pin Sub-D) on the rear supplies TTL level(!) signals. An optional interface provides a level converter to RS-232 levels. The interface emulates an Icom radio (IC-718) and can therefore be used with almost any logbook program.

The receiver sensitivity is better than 0.45 µV.

Specifications

  • Modes: USB, LSB, CW
  • Receive bandwidth: 2.2kHz
  • max. 5Watt Output
  • 2 VFO
  • 2x32 Memory Channels
  • Split-Mode
  • integrated CW-Keyer (Lambic Mode A)
  • integrated Preamplifier
  • SO-239 Connector
  • Dimensions 97x40x155mm
  • Weight 650g

The kit has no CE mark after completion. The finished device may therefore be operated only by licensed radio amateurs.


X1M X1M Kit

The transceiver is supplied as an almost-finished kit. All components are fully populated on the boards. You will have to install a printed circuit board, as well as front panel and the operating buttons. The assembly will take approximately 10 minutes.

Included in Shipment

  • Circuit Board with Display Unit
  • Faceplate, cover for rotary encoder
  • Mounting screws
  • Hand Microphone
  • 3.5 mm jack for Morse Key
  • DC-connector
  • Manual

X1M Firmware update

Here you get the firmware update and the instructions in English for the X1M. The program is in Chinese, please read careful the instruction!

The CAT-Interface is needed for the update!

Normally, Windows will detect the driver for the USB-CAT interface automatically through Windows Update and install them. If this does not work/fails you can use the driver provided here.

X1M MK2

From time to time there are rumors about a 'X1M MK2'.
What is it?
A new development. The unit will have 20 watts of output power and the 6m band is added. Further details are not yet known. The device should be mid-late 2014 ... available, and cost about twice as much as the current model X1M PRO.

Helpful tool for a.m. USB CAT cable: FindComPort - an Utility to find virtual COM ports which haven't been recognized by the CAT software.
