Re: uBITX Version 4 first attempt #ubitx #ubitx-help


Group, I have 5 bitX transceivers, 2 Hendricks and 3 from Ashar. I really like my units (all
of them). I have to admit that I did have problems with my bitX40 but that was my fault. My meter was defective and when I went to adjust the bias my meter read zero so I cranked up the drive and burned out my final. I fixed it and all is well. I have to admit that the audio can be improved by adding an agc circuit but that is not really necessary if you just adjust the volume control to suit the strong or weak signal coming in. My last purchase was the original uBitX and this time I did nothing to it. Yes, it can be improved but I haven't done that yet. I am having too much fun using it. I am in Iowa and my first contact was in California and since then I have logged about 15 States. On 40 I spent 10 minutes trying to get through a pile up of stations calling a station in Spain. I think that I could have logged him if I only had a little more time, he was 20 over on 40. I say all this just to prove one point, this transceiver works out of the box without any mods and all you have to supply is power and a case. If I'm getting over 5 watts, I'm happy. If I need more power I have my 100 watt rig and if that doesn't do it I use my Dentron amp for 1600 watts out. Its more fun doing it with 5 watts. Ashar has done a great job getting this unit out to us and we shouldn't complain about his excellent work. Ive seen it all (ham for 64 years) Ed W0OIC

If you follow the instructions, the rig works as advertised. Most of the modifications done by the group here are improvements each of them wanted to address. A nice site for viewing those that have worked can be found at, which is a great resource site. It's not clear to me what problem you are experiencing. If making the connections to the main board is the source of your discontent, I would say caveat emptor and that you didn't do your homework to find out what the kit entailed. If there is something wrong with the main board, then what have you done to contact HF Signals with a detailed statement of the problem? Finally, what exactly is the nature of your problem. There are several thousand of us loitering around here, perhaps we can help.

I bought several KITs, several finished products from different manufacturers, but I never got into this relationship with a client like Farhan. no reaction to bad a main board v4. I the buyer. I paid the money to not have problems with the assembly of the transceiver. why should I remodel something in a READY product? but if I do not know how, I do not want to, I can not do it?
remake and improve everything is possible. it's not that. but in relation to the seller to the buyers.
and this is a very bad attitude.
Farhan does not solve the problem, which is.
