Re: Tell me your favorite uBitx mods

A relay to select the board's power source (12 or 13.5v) or an alternate power input (24v or a variable input) as the feed to the finals, potentially with the system reading the voltages and the software calculating the approximate power.
The user could then switch between two power levels with software, accommodating low power antennas like magnetic loops which have restrictions such as 10W CW and 25W SSB.

My concept is to create a 6" x 5.5" PCB. It would go on top of .5" standoffs on top of the uBitx main PCB. One would remove the raduino, save the display, discard the nano/raduino (or better, use for a different project), and use the board as I'm creating it instead. The idea is to create a clean, 2-PCB design, with a tuner, USB connectivity, built in connectors, etc. It would replace some of the parts that come with the uBitx normally, make the case more compact, and remove the requirements to wire everything into an enclosure, allowing a clean 3D printed setup or however one would like.
