White on blue Interactive Frequency Reader

Please meet my completed I.F.R. with a white on blue display.

Size is 12cm high, 9cm wide and 3cm thick.

The connector on the left goes to the CAT port on FT817. The jumper is provided to add an off-board on/off switch. On the back of the board there is a resistive trimmer to adjust display contrast (drill a hole in the case). Another jumper (under the LCD) gives access to backlight intensity control.

The pictured object is for sale, including keypad, white-on-blue LCD, molded cable to FT-817. It carries the latest fully featured IFR firmware (including 6 LO values for transverter users). Chips, display and keypad are detachable. It needs a housing.
