VK5ZJA Preamp

Post by VK2YW » Mon Sep 09, 2019 6:25 pm

Hi All,

I have come by a 2m pre-amp inscribed as VK5 - 2M PPREAMP but no info on it. I wonder if anyone on the logger has any info..schematic etc. Also has VK5ZJA on it. I am thinking 80's?

Hi John

This rang a bell, so I dived into the filing cabinet and found the original instruction sheet that came with the kit.

Scanned and PDF attached here.
Original design was from 1985, refreshed in 1990 and 1993.
I can't imagine anyone getting upset with copyright after almost 30 years?

You will note reference to VK5ZJA.
I believe this was the early days of what was to become MiniKits.

Cheers,

Thanks Adam,

Much appreciated. Now to see if it works. :D . Interesting that each time I googled I got MiniKits.
