Re: wrong frequency after software change. #ubitx

Mike Woods


The uBITx and the BITx40 have different circuitry.  In particular the uBITx has 2 IF stages (45MHz and 12MHz) whereas the BITx40 only has one at 12 MHz.  Some changes would be required to the software before the uBITx software will work on the BITx40.  Also some rewriting would be required as different pin outs are used (particularly if the BITx40 has been modified with Allard mods.

I am working on changing over one of my BITx40s to run on uBITx.  I will report on progress to the group.

There is no difference between Raduino devices except the header confuguration.  You should use either the HF Signals BITx4o sketch or the improved sketch from Allard, at least in the short term.

Another strange twist which may be related. I changed a BITX40 rad to uBITX Raduino. Hardware change, you remove the 5 pin plug and put a header in its place. I really looked hard for any other differences in Hardware. Saw none. So, I programed with original software. Crazy, but LSB is USB on 80 and 40 (up to 10mhz) and other than that, seems stable and might be on freq. So, I tried Ians latest 1.01 and LSB is correct, USB is correct, have control also, but freq is off about 400khz. So, found an EEPROM WIPE routine, says it works for all size eproms, and did the wipe. No luck. Still off, I re-loaded the original Ashhar software stil backwards. Thinking I would need to use memory manager but not sure I have the skills. Any ideas ?

Thank you Jack, the problem is that it shows all the same name because it takes the project
name uBitx20. Every project I downloaded has a new folder name but inside
Arduino it shows uBitx20.
That is why I am going to rename them each time I download one.
