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

Rob,

It's why I have a 2nd one on order. I've modified this one about all
I'm going to. My first one is my power outage rig and it works fine.
Going to leave it alone. When the new comes in I'll leave it on a
breadboard to play with and worry about a case later.

I'm not concerned about more power but would like to have more
equalized power across the bands. I'll probably only play with the
driving circuitry.

I also want to see if I can get the carrier suppression to a good level
instead of marginal and the same for the 3rd order IMD.

Thank you for all the stories, I love hearing them and I'll bet
others do too.

I'm certain, now, that jumping into an IC-7300 wouldn't have supplied
the same experience...not that I won't end up with one (or a FT-450D,
as funds allow).

The joys and countless hours of fretting over coax (ended up using
400MAX), discovering and solving broadcast interference, driving
ground rods and tying them, lightning arrestor, even something as
simple as picking a 2 way antenna switch has led to much education
and knowledge.

Now to ponder this 2nd uBITX and these RD16's sitting on the shelf...
