Re: Ideas for AM, NB FM Demod and CW filter board


Although having the ability to xmit AM etc would be nice, perhaps foregoing xmitting and including a simple AM detector circuit so the receive section could also be a general coverage SW receiver.  It seems it would be easy to do a mod for reception, especially since I had to add a high pass filter to keep local AM stations from swamping the bands.  I could get excellent reception of one local AM BC Band station without any alteration to the circuit so it was getting into the audio amp section and getting rectified somewhere...

I was discussing with Farhan on this topic for an add on demod board to add more versatility to uBitx.  CB radios often used a common chip for AM as well as NBFM receive. I enquired here and TDA1220 is available in mkt for slightly more than a $.

With the parallel XF mod maybe we can have an add on board with this chip and a 6 pole Cohn CW xtal filter. 2nd IF's now being 12MHz SSB, 10.7MHz + 455KHz for AM/FM and possibly 8.xx MHz or some other for CW. 

Guys what to suggest..
