The Nomad Experience

It is hard to describe the experience of using the MMX Nomad. Initially, there is a little fumbling to open the case, due to the magnetic closure system. We added thumb presses on the lid to assist with that. Once you get used to how to open the lid, the experience is truly awesome - especially if you have used a different setup for Morse code, such as an MMX with its separate keyboard and cable, a battery bank with its cable, a speaker or earbuds with their cable, and an SWR bridge with its cable. Ditch all of that!

Only one piece to pull out!

Everything built in!

Wire-less (no wires and plugs)

Turn it on, put your hands on the keyboard! It immediately feels so RIGHT. So EASY! Like it was always meant to be! 

Whoa! Your brain screams "GOTTA HAVE IT!"

This product has been an idea in my mind, and then in various stages of development for there years. I had to learn how to model in 3D. I had to learn how to use a large 3D printer, and how to master all of the settings to get the result I wanted. But most of all, I had to figure out how to do a lid with a hinge! And how to make the lid snap shut! Oh, the number of different ideas that failed. The last idea was to use magnets. Oh, the number of magnets that were too weak and small. This is not an injection-molded machine - thus the precision of each piece is not exact. I had to learn how to compensate for that. There was a LOT of learning to get the idea into reality, and then, ultimately, into your hands to enjoy. -- Eric, AF7YQ

Overview

The MMX Nomad is a complete ham and short wave listening station - just add an antenna! It receives and transmits Morse code, and receives SSB and AM. EASY to set up - just open the lid, and press the recessed power button on the rear panel! No plugging and unplugging wires, and trying to arrange all the pieces and wires to avoid RF pickup and other issues. Just turn it on and open! Voila! You are on the air! EASY! Who does not like easy? This is especially nice for those of you who don't want to fiddle around with all of the pieces and connecting wires. What a rats nest! NO LONGER! Check it out!

20,000 mah Li-Ion Power Bank with BMS
(BMS = Battery Management System)
Solar Battery Charger via USB C connector
Built-in Keyboard
TUNE Low-Power Mode with Reflected Power Meter to Assist Antenna Tuning
High Power Mode for higher power output
Supports MMX External Transceiver Mode
Auxiliary Connector Supports External Power Amplifier
Auxiliary Connector Supports Disabled Assist
External straight key support

It's an MMX, plus...

The transceiver has all of the features of the MMX, with all three plugins installed (80, 40, and 20 meters). The power system is charged via a USB 3.0 C connector from an included solar panel, or via an included AC USB wall plug, or any USB 2.0 female connector. Power requires for maximum charge rate: 5V at 2+ amps. Battery level is displayed on the main screen, and the system will automatically power down when the battery voltage level goes to the minimum level specified by the battery manufacturer. Charging of course likewise does a careful process that limits the battery voltage and current maximums as specified by the manufacturer. This BMS feature prevents over and under charge, as well as excessive current into our out of the battery system.

Dual Mode Support

The MMX Nomad also supports External Mode: connect to an external transceiver, using its receiver and transmitter instead of the built-in transceiver. Now, you are free to use ANY BAND your external transceiver works on! No more band limitations! And probably more power and perhaps a better receiver, as well. So the Nomad is a dual function computer system, with three microprocessors combining their processing capability to give you the standard in decoding ability, even in heavy noise and the standard in encoding ability with frequency memories, automatic station ID and call sign capture, type-ahead buffer and auto speed control with a typing test built in, and micro-programs aka macros.

Audio and RF Power

While there is a built-in speaker amplifier and speaker, a headphone jack is also provided, which, when used, disconnects the speaker. Earbuds are included.

The high power mode increases the power output (and reduces the battery charge more rapidly). Expect to see from 50 to 75 percent more power output in this mode, up to 5-6 watts, depending on band and frequency within the band. A single letter H or M for high and medium indicates the power level on the main screen.

And an Auxiliary Connector

The auxiliary connector includes the Transmit/Receive line for controlling an external RF power amplifier, and CW IN and CW OUT lines for use by external devices to assist the deaf, blind or other physical limitations. It also includes the KEY IN line, also available on the KEY IN/OUT jack.

MMX Nomad GO Bag Portable!

The MMX Nomad is packed into a small, easily carried case, with powerful magnetic closures. it weighs slightly over 3 lbs (3.14 to be exact), and is a mere 11 ½ inches wide, 8 ½ inches deep, and 2 ¼ inches high in the rear.

The MMX Nomad includes our Folding Solar Panel and our Mini GoBag, as shown in the photo, plus USB 3.0 cable and USB Power Cube, plus ear buds, and weighs about 4 lbs. Pen not included. The cable connect the either the Folding Solar Panel, any AC outlet via the Power Cube, or any USB 2 amp output for charging - from the sun, or an external battery pack with a 5.0V USB output, a laptop with a USB output, or directly from AC via our included USB Power Cube. Charge it anywhere! If you want to carry extra power that does not require sun power, consider our two battery systems or our solar battery.

Battery Life and Care

The battery system includes four Li-Ion 21700 5000 mah batteries. Because of the built-in BMS, no particular care is required. At end of life, the batteries can be replaced.

Operating time with the built-in batteries: receive-only, over 80 hours. Mixed use with typical transmit/receive ratios, over 40 hours. So for a typical maximum use per day of 4 hours, that is 20 days and 10 days - quite a good margin for a weekend or hike into the woods. You don't even need the PreppComm Solar Battery or the Folding Solar Panel, unless you are out in the wild for a long time, or forget to turn the Nomad off, for example.

The GO Bag with the solar panel and other included accessories is about 4 lbs.

Battery life is measured in years. We anticipate you should start seeing a gradual decline in charge capacity after 2-3 years, and useful life out to 10 years.

Note: earbuds are not shown in the image. Also included is a microfiber cloth for cleaning the screen.
