CTR-BlueLync: PCR1000

Our CTR-BlueLync Icom PCR1000 interface supports the RS-232 interface used on the PCR1000 black box receiver. The interface requires external voltage (5 to 15 VDC) and is equipped with a standard 2.1 x 5.5 MM coaxial power jack and plug that allows you to install the unit in-line with the radio's power supply to power the unit.

The schematic and board layout for this unit are shown below. The interface can be built on a standard perf-board.

Far Circuits carries the circuit board kit (under "Keyers") and the BlueSMiRF modules can be found at www.SparkFun.com. Contact these vendors directly for prices and availability.

The completed interface fits neatly in a Hammond 1551H plastic enclosure. The heads from clear plastic thumb tacks make excellent lenses for the BlueSMiRF LEDs.
