Great news! We have fulfilled all of our pre-orders and HamShield 1.0 has now entered general availability! Also, we have made an addition to our development and support team (Nigel), who will be making a lot of much needed updates to the HamShield library and examples.  You can pick up HamShield 1.0 here.  2018 is going to be the year of new products from Enhanced Radio Devices. We will be making additional surprise announcements as new products become in stock and available.

We are receiving the remaining of the HamShield 1.0 boards from our production house and running them through the QA process. Once they pass, they will be sent off to our fulfillment center in Florida.  While we are perhaps a week or two later than expected, we hope to start shipping HamShield in the last week of December to all of our pre-orders. We will then open up HamShield for general ordering shortly after this. We also are getting additional help by adding another member to our support team. His responsibility will be to improve examples, write new ones, expand...

hamshield, news -

We have been asked a few times for information on measuring HamShield's power output in a cost effective way. While there are a variety of instruments available, most are well out of the budget range of a hobbyist. Sure, a simple analog power meter is cost effective, but a lot of them are not optimized for displaying power output under 1 watt (+30 dBm). This can make it a bit challenging for validating the power output out of any QRP radio, not just HamShield. So, naturally, we built our own! Using the board is quite simple: You just plug an RF source into...

hamshield, new product, news -

We are excited to announce HamShield 1.0! HamShield 1.0 features a variety of tweaks and optimizations from HamShield 0.9 lessons learned.

The great news for HamShield 0.9 users is that nothing has changed in HamShield 1.0 in terms of software. The same library and everything else will work as expected. We have made tweaks to the audio amplifier, RF power amplifier section, and...

explorer block, new product, news -

The 900MHz Explorer Block has been a huge success. We have been amazed by the things people have done with it and demand keeps increasing. Because of this, Enhanced Radio Devices will continue to keep the 900MHz Explorer Block in stock for the foreseeable future. We are trying to match demand with production runs, so if you see Explorer Block go on back order, it means we are still waiting on a production run. Getting the 900MHz Explorer Block going can be a bit complicated for some, so we have decided to start stocking a version of the Intel Edison with...
