Winter Hill receiver project
The Winter Hill receiver project by Brian G4EWJ uses the BATC Advanced receiver hardware.
The software will run on the Raspberry Pi4 desktop environment providing a multi-channel receiver capable of receiving up to four channels simultaneously.
December 2020 - Currently the project is at the design phase with a proof of concept receiver working on breadboard hardware.
February 2021 - beta testing in progress
March 2021 - First PCBs expected
The PCB design by Mike G0MJW is based on a completely new concept, BATC Advanced DATV Receiver, supporting two SERIT tuners with an integrated Raspberry PI4 and PICs. No USB module is required. This supports 4 simultaneous receivers in either a set top box mode, with the PI desktop, or headless, or a combination of these.
Feasibility design which was worked fine
A prototype that was also built.
