A site of endless curiosity

Digital Frequency Display for your Collins, Drake, Hammarlund, Swan, Kenwood, Heath, Yaesu, Atlas, and other Radios

Looking for a digital display for your older radio?

Then check out this site – Almost All Digital Electronics
http://www.aade.com/

On that site you will find plug-and-play digital frequency displays for: Collins, Kenwood Hybrid, Drake, Hammarlund, Swan, Yaesu, and Atlas.

Have a radio that you want to add a digital frequency display that is not listed above?  Then get the Universal kit and probe.  This will even work on simple AA5 (All American Five) Air Capacitor Gang-tuned receivers. 

Don’t want to use that method?  Then use the tube shield that goes over the local oscillator / mixer to sample the frequency?  Still not general enough for your exotic radio?  Then use the programmable kit to jigger the calculation to determine the correct frequency for your particular radio based on the location of the sampling probe.  Slick! ( see it here , pictures of specific installations  )

These digital frequency displays are reasonably priced and come as kits to build yourself or pre-built if you want to use OPL (Other Peoples Labor)

For you fans of the Kenwood TS-820S Hybrid that have a failing digital display, well, here you will find a replacement.  If you have a Kenwood TS-520S then its plug-and-play using connections already provided on the back of the radio.

The site has extensive model-dependent documentation on how to install the displays so you can see what you are up against before you purchase one of these kit or pre-built units.

I have not used any of these digital display.  Your mileage may vary.
The site claims 10,000 happy customers.
So take a look – looks interesting
