Basic QPSK transceiver with RF2713 IC (Beginner question)

Hi all,

I'm relatively new to electronics and wanted to further my understanding by embarking on a basic RF transceiver design based around the RF2713 IC. Does anyone have any experience in developing a simple QPSK transceiver based around this IC in the sub-Mhz frequency (around 200 to 400kHz) range?

Initially I want to develop a non-PA version for learning (keeping the antennas relatively close together), which this seems to involve using a DAC to RF2713 to antenna (for the transmitter), and an antenna to RF2713 to ADC for the receiver.

Could anybody recommend any simple to use DACs / ADCs (or basic equivalents), and a basic circuit for the above?
