Welcome to HUK Electronics
I'm G4HUK, better know as Huk in amateur radio circles.
HUK Electronics was created, at the suggestion of amateur radio friends, to market a small accessory I designed for the Yaesu FT-817 QRP transceiver (it works equally well with the Yaesu FT-857 and FT-897 transceivers).
This accessory will be of interest if you are tired of the multiple button presses your Yaesu FT-817 requires to generate a tuning carrier. It provides a quick and easy way to generate a tuning carrier and is much smaller, lighter and cheaper than the alternatives. Visit the Quick-Tune Dongle page.
I was bitten by the amateur radio bug whilst still in school and built my first transmitter in my early teens. The skills and knowledge I gained through amateur radio and experimentation shaped my professional career.
I am now semi-retired, having spent most of my career as a senior engineer in a state of art government radio communications research and testing facility.
My main amateur radio interests are low power, weak signal and stealth operations.
I am a pragmatist who investigates simple low cost ways of circumventing a problem, before designing complex expensive circuitry to solve it. This is not always possible, but it is surprising how often a little ingenuity can save a lot of hardware and/or software.
Although I write code I am not a programmer - it takes me far too long. The code I do write however, is fast and compact and will run on smaller (and lower power) processors than many professional programmers believe possible.
