The Ultimate plug and play Stellex Mini-YIG Synthezizer controller.
The stellex synthesizers are quite popular in certain Ham circles. They can easily provide a local oscillator for 5.7GHz (Ham Band) for 8.5GHz (DSN RX) and for 10GHz (Ham Band) depending on the actual frequency range of the YIG you have.
The controller scheme presented here is the ultimate plug and play solution for the RF minded ham that don't want to spend any time on digital and software/microcontroller developments.
You need an Arduino nano 3.0 (or compatible/clone)
Note that you don't need to have any of the Arduino tools installed,
neither you need to know anything about microcontrollers or programming.
You may find instructions and a schematic diagram here: Stellex_ctrl_by-ct1dmk.pdf
You may find the software here: Stellex_k_v1.zip
This is quite an old project that for some reason was not made public before... Hope you find this development interesting.
Now, due to some popular demand, here it is for all to enjoy.
