Re: Ubitx average SSB output

Howard Fidel

I didn't touch R65. Changing its value changes the DC operating point at the collector of Q6. R63 has almost no effect on that, since the current is set mostly by R64 which is bypassed for audio.
Looking closer at the circuit, it is Ok to change R65 to 2K and get the same result since the DC operating point will move down from about 10V to 8V. It is easier thought to do the rework by tacking a resistor across R63 rather then removing and replacing R65. Either way works.

Howard did you also change out R65 that was posted here too.
By the way the parts showed up here yesterday, thanks a lot. Now to find time to install them.

Yes. Change R63 to 24 ohms. The earlier rev boards had 100 ohms there, and V3 has 47. I put another 47 ohm resistor in parallel with the one on the board. Now I don't need to yell into the mic.

I have checked SSB output for the Ubitx using a Softrock sdr receiver. The carrier is well aligned and the filter gives a very good shape. Whistling is gives full output with the stock mic element. The output seems clean but the average power during normal speech seems to me a bit low. Is there an easy way to increase it? 73, Franco
