The Shopping List for the mcHF Project

mcHF Transceiver Kit

My mcHF Project Build Shopping List of Parts

I found quite a bit of detail out there for this project but there always seemed to be little bits missing here and there, so I thought that I would document what I could to help others out with this great little project.

The costs for the components are as of 22nd March 2015 so please bare that in mind, I have only included them as a guide so that anyone reading this will know what they are letting themselves into.

Also you will be spending a little more than this anyway, a lot of the components listed below are ‘Cut Tape’ stock, this means that they are supplied on a real of tape that would normally be loaded into a component placement machine, this means that the company that you are ordering from has to physically cut off the desired amounts manually and in the case of some of the 0805 Surface Mounted Capacitors and Resistors, they cannot really cut off just 1 unit, so you may have to buy 10 or 50 even though you only need 1 of that value.

Or you do what I did which is purchase enough of each component to build multiple units, in my case I multiplied everything by 5, not just so that I could build another unit if I mess up this one somehow, but mainly just so that I have stock for other projects further down the line such as the PICaStar Project that I have also started work on now that the PCB’s for that have arrive (more on this in another project page).

Please Note: This list is just for the Version 0.4 UI Board.

The people that have created the BOM (Bill of Materials) have done a great job, but there are still a few typos in them as and when the circuit has been updated, parts removed because they were no longer needed, etc. I had a few issues with duplicate part numbers being in the BOM and also listed in the Schematic as different values, understandable with a complex little project such as this. Just be aware that I may still have a few things listed wrong here, but to the best of my knowledge it is now correct, if though you do find a mistake, please let me know if I have not changed it yet!

I worked out the cost for this board ONLY to be around £57.00 when I ordered the components finally on the 22nd March 2015 after much checking and rechecking component values on the mcHF Project forum.

This did not include any delivery costs that were incurred.
