I do not mind helping with admin duties if needed.
From work on other forum groups, it seems that admin activities mostly involve the verification and authorization of new members (and very infrequently the removal of a spammer). That I can handle, but the acknowledged technical expert will still be Farhan VU3ICQ.
Opening the forum up for read-only access by non-members might increase the number of lurkers, but it may also stimulate some of them to join the group so they can insert their comments. Allowing Read-only access will also allow hams with web sites to include links to the BITX20 forum and thus drive more interest to our group.
It is interesting to see the different directions that the BITX has taken:
1) Other bands than the original 20 Meters.
2) Band-switched models.
3) Transverter versions
4) VHF versions of the BITX.
5) Very compact designs (i.e. Altoids box chassis).
6) Digital VFOs, VXOs, PTOs, Huff & Puff VFOs, etc.
7) QRPP to QRO models.
8) SSB plus CW, plus PSK/MSK, etc.
9) both ugly construction and PCB based layouts.
10) and all the circuit improvements(?) to the original design.
It will be very interesting to follow the future evolution of this fun radio. We owe a lot to Farhan for starting this project and for making the design available to the rest of us. Thanks O.M.
