Finally made some SSB contacts! #ubitx

I took my time getting the radio to the stage where I felt comfortable using it.  I took apart a non-functioning $2.00 Chinese Baofeng mic and replaced the guts withe the HFsignals provided mic capsule and switch.  Yesterday I made contact with the Cape Cod Marconi's Birthday Event station, KM1CC and they gave me a 59 on 40 meters! Then I made contact with three stations in South Bend, IN and in Michigan.
