Received my DD103
yesterday and it's in use today.Great product,easy hook-up,easy
set-up!I'm very happy with it.
Robert I know you
probably heard this a million times lol but great product so happy I
don’t have to ask if I am on freq I can just set the band and tune to
my home freq, and I don’t have to listen to every one say your .5
. 8 low or high thanks again.
Frank Hi Ron,
purchased a DD-103 from you via ebay. I received it on
February 1st, and had time to work with it last night. I want to
let you know that I'm very happy with the digital dial, and I think
that it's an awesome product!
I've looked at
many of the digital readouts over the years, and they all had the same
problem......only using the VFO to read the frequency. Your design of
using memory to calibrate the unit to the actual frequency received is
a novel idea and a very unique way to solve that problem.
I'm using the
DD-103 with my Collins 51S-1 that has aged crystals that are off as far
as 25 kHz. Using the receiver with the digital dial no longer
requires recalibrating the mechanical dial. When I set up the
DD-103 no level adjustment was required and the unit set up and
calibrated very easily. I also like the blue soft
Thank you for
taking the time to design a product like this. I only wish I had
found your digital dial sooner, as I love to restore boat anchor
receivers, and could have used it many times in the past.
Good luck with
your ebay sales! You have great products! (I also have your
I received the box
today and already tried it out, works like a Champ. It took longer to open
the box than it did to connect the DD-103 and try it out. Needless to
say, I am quite pleased with the DD-103
Thank you for your superb service. I will be back to purchase
another DD-103. I have recommended them to many, especially Swan
and Drake owners, works great with all of mine and blends with
73, BRAD Ron,
I just wanted to say how pleased I am with the DD-103. It has made
operating my Yaesu FT-101 all the more enjoyable. Keep up the good work!
I wanted to drop you a note and thank you for the fast response on the
DD103. It works absolutely perfectly. It sure makes tuning
the ole TS-520 a snap.
The DD 103 is very nice to have on the Racal because it uses
a plastic film reel as display that could
eventually break. So it's really essential to have a
digital counter. The blue display is also a good color
choice. Good job.
Rick Hi Ron,
Just to let you know, the DD-103 arrived here yesterday and it works
exactly as expected! Thanks very much.
Gary Received the DD-101H
....easy installation and works great .....I'm
very pleased .....It's fun running this old stuff once in a while and
obviously having a DD is a great enhancement. Good design
.......thank you .........73 ........Tom Ron,
Got the unit,
wired it up to 500cx per your instructions, used the auto program,
works like a charm, tnx, great product and service, i will give
kudos on E-Ham. 73, BradRON,
IT JUST CAME THIS MORNING. I DON`T KNOW WHO YOU DONE IT, BUT, FOR THE
PRICE, IT IS JUST SUPER. VERY NICELY BUILT, AND SIMPLE TO DEAL WITH.
SOME 2 METER, RADIOS, ARE HARDER TO USE. THANK YOU VERY KINDLY FOR A
QUALITY PRODUCT, AT A REAL BARGAIN PRICE.
Beautiful Custom Drake Installation. Received the BLUE
dd-103, and got around to using it last night. It looks
great!! And it works great!! Thanks for providing the
blue display, it matches the coloring on my Drake TR4C and my blue LED
fan I use to cool the tubes.
Thanks Stephen Connected to my John
R. Leary modified SP-600 and it works perfectly after doing some minor
tweaking. Thanks for
having such a great product for vintage receivers.
Les Locklear Ron,
Short note to
thank you again. This is GREAT product (DD-101) I LOVE IT. You get an old
tube radio with new dig freq readout can't get better than that. I will
order another soon.
Thanks again Jose Your DD-101H
arrived back to me today. BINGO!!!
I installed it and it works FINE!. Thanks very
much, i am a Happy Ham.
Thanks very much, Chet Hi Ron and happy new
and connected up digital readout to my kwm-2 and it works great. I am
very pleased with it and the workmanship. Well done. Use me as a
reference if you need to. I would be happy to do that.
Geoff vk3fabv yippiiiii... FT-101EE
works great with the DD-103
Hello ESP, What a great
product! Installed flawlessly -- works as advertised. I
tapped the 6.3 VAC on the way to the dial lamp -- not too inelegant a
method. Let me know if
the pictures unzip OK. You know it took a safe crackers touch to
get that 10.00000 picture! <smile> BTW, the analog calibration is
actually right on -- the picture is a parallax error. I kept the
Hammarlund plastic cover and chrome plated screws -- took a few washers
to space it just right, but I think it looks cool. Thanks for the
great product! George
This is one of the
most splendid frequency counters due to the ease of
use and the setup to use on our Yaesu FT-101b. Thanks again
for the DD-103 Universal Frequency Counter, please look
forward to our continued patronage in the future...the word is out
about your unit via our DX'ing!!! What a breeze to tune
in our pals, locally and abroad!
I received the digital frequency display yesterday (Monday). Thanks.
I've got it hooked up to my
Hallicrafters S-40B, and it works well. I've got it hooked up to the
cathode of the converter tube through a 100-pF cap. I wrapped one lead
of the cap around the tube's cathode pin, and reinstalled the tube.
Since the S-40B doesn't have
a VFO output jack, I didn't use the provided cable for the input to the
DD-103. I am using a set of 'scope probes that have hook-type
connectors. The other end of the probes has a BNC connector, so I
picked up a BNC-RCA adapter at Radio Shack to match the DD-103's input
I'm getting good, stable
operation up to about 22MHz with R8 turned all the way CW. I'll wait
until tonight when I can receive WWV and do some calibration. I may try
a little larger value coupling cap to see if that will give higher
frequency operation, although 22MHz covers most of the spectrum of my
Thanks for a well designed
Thanks for the connect check
about the SWAN 500C. Unfortunately I missed an eBay auction.
First I have to say that the
DD-103 is working very properly on my Kenwood TS-520S. I've calibrated
with a TS-2000 and now it is very exactly. Hi
The DD-103 arrived today, it is a very professional looking unit.
Thanks for the excellent service, I am a very satisfied customer.
Best Regards, Malcolm
With the outside temperature
here in NJ approaching 100, I decided it was too hot for household
chores and time for ham radio!
I just finished hooking up
the DD-103 to my Drake R-4C and I am very pleased with the overall
operation of the unit. Now when my ham buddies kid me about the
lack of digital readout on my old tube stuff I can prove them wrong!
I also appreciate your prompt
shipment; it was a pleasure to do business with you.
The DD-103 kit arrived yesterday safe and sound but with no ICs, just
as you thought. Looks like a great kit - instructions look clear
- quality very nice. Please send along the ICs and when they
arrive I'll just plug them into the sockets.
Thanks! Phil Hi!
I've completed the DD-103 kit - instructions were great and soldering
the boards went great. I'm looking for connection information for
a Hammarlund HQ-129-X. Thanks for such a great product - and such
a well thought out kit!
And by the way,
I'm using the DD103 with an Atlas 210X, works great, calibration was
neat, and the counter mode is very handy. If anyone asks about using it
with the Atlas, piece of cake, and I'll validate.
Just received the DD-103, nice to finally get a nicely detailed and
well built product. My application is a HEATHKIT HW-101.
I am really impressed with the
quality of your DD-103. I bought
mine a couple of weeks ago and finally got around to hooking it
up. It works fine, but I have a couple of questions.
Ron Hi, Ron.
Just to let you know
the DD 103 arrived in great shape and very quickly after my order was
sent in. I have it installed on my Hammarlund HQ-150, and it
works very well. It does limit the ranges but I have not taken
time to work on that. Thanks for a great product that makes
listening more enjoyable with easier identification of stations and

I have received the DD-103, It work very well. A question, for my
receiver 51S-1 the shift for ssb is not necessary. I setting mode
control fully CCW so the band number is displayed at the right in the
display (AM mode, is correct?
Thanks, Marzio, Italy
The 103 works great on my NC183D.
Tnx----Doug (Oregon) Just a note to tell you that I am
very pleased with the DD-103. Didn't have any holes to put the
wires through on the R-388, so mounted two connectors on the back
chassis. Now the unit plugs in. I have a R388 that Chuck
Felton in Wyoming hot rodded and really love it. This is the
Phil I made the connections you gave
me and the digital counter is working great. Again I thank you
