If you are a FCD owner I am sure you are a very satisfied with the quality and performance receiving satellites and all sorts of communications in VHF and UHF. However, the FCD only starts receiving properly from 64Mhz up, and misses all the good fun that is receiving HF and 6m on a SDR. That is why we decided to make a simple HF converter to the FCD, and get access on all the bands, extending the RX now from DC to 1700Mhz. The HF converter is very simple, as you can see in diagram, any person with some soldering experience in kit build, will have no problems to get it work properly.
