An information resource for old Amateur Radio products
Welcome to the Datong Archive. This is an unofficial resource for manuals and any information that you would like to send me for supporting old Datong amateur radio gear.
There is also a Google email discussion group, datongarchive to chat about things related to this equipment.
IMPORTANT! 8th November 2008 - Our friends at Google are changing the format of Google Pages, the site creator I use to produce and maintain this. In anticipation of this I have created a replacement site at http://sites.google.com/site/datongarchive/ What that means is:
I have a quantity of new material to add, thanks to some very generous contributors!
As far as I can recall, Datong started making amatur radio products in the late 1970s. I remember the early RFC RF clipper modules, followed by the FL1 audio filter. They then sold on their amateur product rights at some point in the 1990s. There is no longer any support available.
The name DATONG come from the name of the founder, Dr. David A Tong.
I emailed Datong in 2004 with a request for information and this was their response:
"Thank you for your email unfortunately we did not retain any of the circuit information when we ceased manufacture of the amateur product range some years ago. Of the products that we sold on to Lowe Electronics most were with circuit information but Lowe do not offer a support service. As we now concentrate on other product areas we did not retain other circuits when we moved offices."
If you have any information that you would like to contribute then I would be pleased to hear from you. I'm happy to accept either electronic or paper format as I can scan or convert to PDFs.
