Re: Abandoning my uBitx Ver 3

Will the new QSX be sold in assembled boards? O have a Genesis 30-20m I have been building since years. Although they have no SMD having a lot of components is a long process to mount, also the check of each stage takes a lot of time. I found the Ubitx far easier to have it done. The only mod that was not easy was the relays replacement and this was due because they were through hole! If the were SMD I think they would have easier to remove! What I like in this ubitx SMD boards is that components are spaced quite enough to allow easy mods with through hole components just mounted in a Manhattan style. I had mounted through hole kits that were a mess in case I had to replace one single component.

No reason to stop now, when all is said and done we might be at v20. I got a dollar on it. 😉


Btw, I got a V3 and a big case with the 5” Nextion on the way. Its going in its new home. I think we have the right mods now to tame the v3, so I will be giving it a go soon, I already have some work in addressing some of the problem areas. I don’t have a scope so I can only follow instructions that guaranty a improvement. I could probably ghetto rig my SDR and spectrum analyzer program and get a reference of my transmission.
