Re: A story of discovery...and uBITX #ubitx

Sounds like the one in How To Become A  Radio Amateur. 

I too built mine on the orange crate 'chassis', in '51.  Them were the days! If the uBITX brings back that sort of feeling, then bring it on.

Thanks for the memory.

My first transmitter (1953) was a 6V6 running at abouit 250 volts built on a piece of wood and with a single 80M novice crystal. Lucky if it got 5 watts into my random wire antenna. The term QRP was not in common use and it was just what a kid in Brooklyn could afford. 

As with uBitx, it started a lifetime of discovery and launched me on several engineering careers. Thought still a working engineer, I have been inactive for decades hamwise, but uBitx has rekindled my excitement, and I am awaiting my first unit while thinking about getting a second in the pipeline.

Thanks again, Ashhar!
