Re: Ubitx occasionally hanging in transmit while receive led is on. Have to hit cw key a few times to get it unstuck. Ideas? #ubitx

Jerry posted multiple comments about using CHIPQUICK but that is for possible component removal after troubleshooting has identified a defective part. 

First step might be to check for RF getting into control leads, and to verify that there are no ground loops (proper ground returns are essential).

Are the Ubitx PCBS assembled with leaded or lead-free solder?  Makes a difference when using ChipQuik

Grab some ChipQuik. Stuff's a game-changer when it comes to removing SMT and multi-lead parts.
