Re: #bitx40 New BitX40 firmware release with Roger Beep function #bitx40

Simple: Many people into CB like to get their hands on our gear, make them work on 11 meters, and royally screw them up (adding "pingers', "echoboxes", removing ALC, you name it) - and many of them try to bootleg on amateur frequencies.  Add to that the motormouths and worse (when in React many years ago, I was witness to a motormouth jamming attempts to get help to a snake-bit little girl, who died because we couldn't get through "I have a RIGHT to do whatever I want on the radio!!!").  CB in the US really got ugly in a hurry in the 70s, and went downhill from there.

Thank you, Allard, for sharing your work.

I shall never understand this bias against CB radio. I do hope it only occurs in the U.S.A.

I've just released Raduino v1.29, download it from

New in this release:
  • Added Roger Beep (NASA style "Quindar Tone" as used in Apollo missions).
PTTsense, RXTX and CWcarrier mods must be installed for this feature to work.
Press Function Button 7 times to toggle this function on/off.
It's OFF by default as some find it annoying. Others find it helpful in pile-up situations though.
Use responsibly!

Happy BitX-ing!
