The KN-Q7A single band SSB transceiver kit was designed specifically for the worldwide market by BA6BF, and kitted by BD6CR/4. As the upgraded version of the popular KN-Q7 (more than 500 kits were sold worldwide), the KN-Q7A has an improved circuit design and component selection, which makes it an ideal candidate for field operation, back pack and emergency use.
Improvements from KN-Q7
• Improved Low Pass Filter (LPF) circuit to meet the -43 dBc standard
• Added post IF amplifier one pole crystal filter to reduce background noise
• Removed RX/ TX indicator LED to further reduce RX current consumption by about 5 mA
• Added an on-board RF attenuator in the receiver front end to reduce broadcast interference
• Added power polarity protection
• Larger chassis area (+25%) used as heat sink to reduce thermal drift
• More frequency coverage options: support for European calling frequency 7.090 MHz and American calling frequency 7.285 MHz
• Matched IF filter crystals to ensure good selectivity
• Improved part selection, and reduction of SMD part count to just one transistor
