I don't see a way to re-edit a post, so here it is again, I hope, in an easier to read font. It looks like the issue is with writing in another editor and pasting that into the on-line editor here.
In my case I have noticed that my SDR using a cheap dongle seems to outperform the uBITX receiver substantially. Even though I don’t consider the SDR dongles to be the pinnacle of RF design, I guess throwing brute force real time math at the receiver side makes up for some of it.
Are the uBITX receivers ripe for improvement?
Rather than cutting up the uBITX or trying to cram more software into the one Arduino Nano on the uBITX I was pondering running multiple Nano’s communicating on the I2C bus. They are only about $3.50 apiece. (The 3.3v bus [albeit barely] is in spec for the Nano.)
But, rather than cutting up the radio I think I’d rather simply treat the uBITX as a peripheral to a Raspberry Pi. I’d place the Pi (and USB audio adaptors) in a metal box packaged in the same case as the uBITX.
What I’d do with the Pi is:
Additionally, I’m doing a literature search to see what work has been done on training Neural Nets to decode Morse Code. It would seem that a technology that can identify people, dogs and cats from low resolution photos (although there was a study that found AI could mistake pictures of muffins for chihuahuas), could finally realize an adaptable, reliable CW decoder. (This would run on the Pi, also).
I’m sure others must be working on the same things. Anyone know about such projects. That would save time over starting from scratch.
