Hi, I'm John (G4HUK) better known as 'Huk' in amateur radio circles. HUK Electronics was created in 2012 to market a small accessory I designed for the Yaesu FT-817 transceiver. Hundreds are now in use all over the world, and demand is still as high as ever.

This accessory will be of interest if you are tired of the multiple button presses your radio requires to generate a tuning carrier. It works with the Yaesu FT-817, FT-818, FT-857 and FT-897.

Please visit my Quick-Tune Dongle page for more details.   

I became interested in electronics and amateur radio whilst still in school, and built my first transmitter in my early teens. The skills I gained through amateur radio and electronic experimentation shaped my professional career.

I am now retired, having spent most of my career as a senior engineer in a state of the art government radio communications research and testing facility.

Although I write code I am not a programmer - it takes me far too long. The code I do write however is fast, compact and will run on lower power microcontrollers than many professional programmers believe possible.

The Quick-Tune Dongle uses ingenius hardware and highly efficient software to minimise its size and power consumption.
