by Christian Bravo, W4ALF

Simple and Inexpensive Auto-Calibrating Multifunction Project
by Gene Marcus, W3PM
This simple project includes a two-channel VFO, WSPR source, frequency counter, and a clock. This menu-driven multifunction project includes a band switched two channel 110 kHz to 112.5 MHz VFO, band switched 6 m to 2200 m WSPR source, a 0 to 6.5 MHz frequency counter, and a clock that displays time, date, and temperature. Frequency and time accuracy are maintained by a highly accurate temperature compensated DS3231 real time clock (RTC) board.
