Re: Firmware Questions

You should build the radio and see if it works first. Then save the original configuration to a file. This is so that if you start to do a calibration and something goes wrong you can start from the beginning again. To use the new firmware with an s-meter you will have to install a hardware modification to make that work.
You may or may not have to do a calibration on the radio as it is suppose to be calibrated at the 'factory'.
Go here and read a lot about the ubitx.
Look at the kd8cec firmware. It will have a couple of modifications that make the radio more convenient to use and info about an s-meter circuit and automatic volume control.

Hi guys, getting ready to assemble my new uBitx. There’s a ton of information on the site but I’m afraid I may miss something if I don’t as a question or two. I take it that once I power the radio on I’m going to have to do some sort of calibration. I say this because I think I read where if you upgrade firmware some of the other firmwares my not have the ability to do this initial calibration. I was reading some stuff online while I was just about to goto sleep so maybe I misinterpreted what I read.
