ok, here is what you all can do.
go ahead and make whatever you can out of the body of work of minima with
the following caveat:
1. to keep minima distinct, i wouldn't like these boards or version to be
callled the Minima or Minima version x, y z. Choose a different name.
2. if you design is substantially derived from Minima, then it should be
available without any restrictive copyright.
3. the software is under GPL, thus any derived version must be available
under the GPL too.
on the other hand, i have completed a much easier to build (though
slightly more part count than the BITX) all band transceiver called the
HF1. It uses diode mixers and the same audio back-end as the Minima. The
HF1 is a double conversion transceiver with the first IF of 45 MHz and the
second IF of 10 MHz. The first oscillator is the Si570 and the second
oscillator is 18.432 MHz crystal in third overtone. I have been operating
it extensively for the last few months. It is a fantastic performer which
is very easy to setup and build. I am enclosing a circuit of it here for
you guys to go through.
I will complete the write-up and post it soon on my website. this grew out
of my frustration with the Minima's KISS mixer's oscillator leakage.

I am interesting in getting more than one set to send to Cuba.
I am in U.S. now.
If someone can send me the GERBER I can do manufacture in China and in the
same way and help others.
Please feel free to contact me anytime.

I could be interested too!
How much would it cost to ship to Italy?
On which version of the minima is based the PCB?

Hi Ashhar et al.
I had 10 PCB's made see http://www.magma.ca/~andrewr/
I made these for my own use. Two other friends I gave boards and are
that wants one for the cost of postage.I have my receiver working in RX. Thank you for a great design.
I have 5 blank boards left. I would like to send you and anyone else
required. (see construction doc a work in progress). If we have moreThe boards are not perfect there are a few cuts and jumpers
builders can get
get manfacturers numbuers from that.any remaining issues fixed. My BOM uses Digikey part numbers but can
left.Is Surface mount but can be easily hand assembled.
There is a construction manual on my web site that can be downloaded.
I also have a board designed for digital card I also have 5 of these
another batch of boards made available at cost.
If the design is viable I can clean up the minor errors and have
downI had the boards made in China at reasonable cost.
Let me know what you think.

guys, here is the pinch, the mixer leakage is too much to meet the

Hi ganque!Same here like Paul. I am waiting for a PCB to surface.I
had even sent Sandeep a contribution to purchase a batch of 3 by 3
PCBoards of the earlier version but never received the Main Board. I
can homebrew Minima, Manhattan style, but I do like the neatness of

Andrew: what's the latest on the Minima's PCB board. How Can
I get one along with BOM of parts ?

This is a new pcb that has just been created by VE3ZMH so a couple
of guys here in Canada who are interested in the minima can try it
out. Is surface mount.

Can somebody put some light on which design the PCB is being talked
about? Is the design and testing is completed for minima now?

mistakes.to check out the board to make sure I have not made any big
writing a construction manual and it has the parts list as all
Digikey parts. Is a mix of surface mount and through hole but the
surface mount are all larger parts so can be hand assembled.
Surface mount parts very inexpensive.
(1206 size typ) Going to be posting progress on the web page,
suggest you wait till we fire up the first boards and get the bugs
If it all works and there is interest will likely make boards
available at nominal cost to other Hams.
Keep checking the web page.

This is my first post. I have created my own PCB for the minima. It
mostly uses surface mount. Going to start assembling it this week.
Will document progress on web page magma.ca/~andrewr .
