Re: Ubitx average SSB output

Mike aka KC2WVB <rb5363@...>

Quick question. I think that what your doing is the following: Presumably the audio from the mic's audio line that carries the ac with a dc offset is first passed through a capacitor to block the dc and then used as input into a small preamp, perhaps an op-amp before anything else occurs. If so, then I imagine by changing the value of the named resistor you are increasing the gain associated with the op-amps behavior and consequently the audio's amplification above that of what otherwise occurs.

If my conjecture is near valid I am wondering if there is another way to do this such as by using a little stand alone pre-amp immediately after the microphone and prior to the assumed dc blocking filter. I only wonder because one could then control the gain and I do not have the right stuff for SMD removal or replacement.

I have changed just R63 so now it is 24 ohm (I added 2 ordinary 100ohms resistors in parallel) as suggested. I confirm it increases the average power to the right level given the stock mic element. Could it be further decreased, let's say 10 ohms?

1K. Change one or the other, not both.

If R63=24ohm what value should R65 be?

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
