Re: Can't get my uBitX to transmit CW on the Dial frequency
I'm not sure what you mean about shifting the BFO.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
The BFO has nothing to do with transmit.
On receive, it can remain exactly where it was for SSB operation.
And no idea what all the other software releases out there are doing.
Mine is rigged as follows
On transmit the dial shows the frequency of the CW carrier (of course).
On receive (if RIT is not enabled) it still shows the same operating frequency in the LCD.
However, the VFO is tuned up in frequency by however many hertz the cw sidetone is set up to be
if operating in LowerSideBand mode, and down in frequency by that many hertz if UpperSideBand mode.
Since I worked for years with not terribly selective receivers (no crystal filter) I prefer to tune in a CW carrier
by going for a zero beat in the audio. In this mode, the BFO is moved to the center of the 12mhz
crystal filter passband, halfway between USB and LSB mode. I call it ZSB.
Then once tuned in, flip back to LSB or USB mode to operate CW.
This ZSB mode is also handy when calibrating the the 25mhz si5351 reference oscillator as per post 35235.
