Yes, raduino_v1.27.7 fixes this problem.
Download it from
and install the related (minimal) mods (see instructions included).

Allard's fix to the Bitx40 carrier burst using a delay in the code is
described here:

There is also Raj's fix, strictly hardware, no code:

Those are all in the same thread.
The rest of the thread is worth browsing as well.

John et al : 

The RF burst on PTT closure, on the BITX40, has been addressed by Allard
(PE1NWL) in his Raduino Code.

His approach is to shut down the CLK output on the SI5351 for 50 mS on
closure and wait for things to settle before re-enabling it to allow

There is also a simple hardware mod that can be used to reduce this
from 50 mS to less than 20 mS so that the delay time can be reduced in
The mod is to change C124 from 47uF to 4.7 uF. C124 is near Q12 (mic
input).  See message #29101 in this group for the original discussion
