XC-3006 Full Build

The production run arrives this week as well as cases and power connectors. We will ship next week once the units have passed test.

You will need to provide a 12V nominal PS (9-15V will work).

The cases will require modification to access the power and USB.

After shipping existing orders we will have a few additional units for sale.

This is a custom build for the XLX team, using their design found at https://github.com/LX3JL/usb-3006 and we will warrant the hardware from defects for 90 days.

All software and configuration support is from the XLX team at https://github.com/LX3JL/xlxd and community at https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/xlxd-star/info

XC-3006 Passes Initial Test

First article was received and John succesfully tested the units over the weekend. The full build is in process and we will ship next week after Dayton Hamvention.

The last components arrive this week. We have accelerated assembly to a 5 day turn so we should be shipping by Mid May.

XC-3006 Build is underway

Fabs and long-lead parts are on order. We are anticipating delivery in April.

We’ll keep you informed as things move forward.

Cheers,

XC-3006 Moves to Production

We have 26 orders on the books, so we are moving to production. We will continue to accept orders until the end of February. We should be shipping in April.

This will not be a stock item, we are building to order only. There will only be a future build if we reach sufficient numbers again, so if you are interested, now is the time to place an order.

We want to thank again the XLX team for “Putting the Amateurs back in Amateur Radio” by providing their transcoding solution.

 

Last Chance for the XC-3006

Today is the last day to order an XC-3006 6 Channel AMBE Vocoder. We’ve received 22 of the 25 orders required for an assembly run. We need 3 more to make the run.

If you are one of the 30 Kickstarter Backers and you haven’t received your discount coupon please email me.

Thanks,

DMR Licensing

We get frequent inquiries about using the UDRCTM for DMR. The problem is, DMR requires a license from Motorola, the cost of which is prohibitive for the Amateur Radio market.

We all know of products that seem to indicate that it’s not really a problem, until it is …
