Re: K5BCQ uBITX Relay Switched LPF/BPF board

Why manual band switching? Could not the code select the proper filter according to frequency the user selects on the uBitx? Could not the RF Switching be done using pin diodes or FET switching? I’m just trying to learn, thanks.

Since most keep talking about the need for BPFs for certain bands, I "guess" the 80m-10m uBITX direction should be a board with 6 filter capability. How about a basic dual relay switched filter board (3-1/4" x 3-7/8") with up to 6 pluggable filters, all manually selected with a 6 position rotary switch --AND-- you can add a small mux board with 2N3904 relay drivers for the filters and a CD4028B mux to go from the 3 Raduino pins to the filters. Start with the existing 111,110,100,000 and add two others when you have the code modified.
