Re: ubitx CW straight key wiring
I want to thank you for pointing out this error on ubitx.net. I have fixed this temporarily by removing both the photos from that page and by deleting the reference to the hfsignals.com wire up error (now out of date)
The original wiring diagram and circuit diagram on hfsignals.com were in error. The error in the circuit diagram was subsequently drawn to list members attention, and I updated the circuit diagram on ubitx.net accordingly. HF Signals subsequently fixed their circuit diagram and I purged a number of references to the wire up and circuit diagram instructions error. Obviously I missed one!
It is regrettable that you (and perhaps others?) have taken the photo as the guide to wiring up their manual key in this manner, and come to grief with the ubitx going directly into TX mode. For that I can but apologise. Unfortunately this problem wasn't commented on earlier.
Maintaining ubitx.net is a bit of an undertaking. The guide will, from time to time, become a bit out of date, because there is a very active community of hackers. However, I certainly don't want folk burning through finals or getting a really bad steer. So if anybody spots an error, I attend to these as soon as they are drawn to my attention. It's normally best to write direct to info@... for the fastest response.

I've gone through 2 rounds of blowing finals before I finally found it mentioned that the wiring in the manual for the CW straight key was wrong.
