Just use an I2C
adapter, then it is 4 wires. I have a 4 line x 20 on uBit
I did not shield them,
but they could be twisted and shielded and run them away from
the Radio PCB?
You can buy the
adapter for about $3.

think there are a number of people who have moved the display
away from the main board to give them some flexibility in
terms of display placement. Evidently, some shielding is
needed, but I think I recall someone simply wrapping the cable
in foil mitigated the problem. I'd like to hear from anyone
who has moved the display and what their experience is.
the idea of a "portable field radio" with all the
controls on the top in a watertight case like this.
I'm thinking of modeling it after a bitX40 build I
saw here, and this case looks like the perfect size!
Is there any reason I couldn't do that with the
uBitx? It looks like the LCD plugs directly into
the board, but would it give me noise issues if I
used a short length of ribbon cable to move the LCD
to face upwards?
