Re: uBITX CW offset woes

Gordon Gibby

You are very gracious.

I think the real issue is that my other rigs know if you are in CW mode or in single side band mode, and so they can’t offset the beat frequency oscillator appropriately

The MicroBid X with Stock software does not know; if you push the mic button you are single side band if you push the key you are CW., and until you do that it doesn’t know. By merely adding a way for it to know which technique (SSB vs cw) you prefer this could be solved.

Hi Gordon,

Either way we setup the dial is right. Either way is wrong. If we use it the wrong way. As we have both said, we have to know how the radio in front of us works if we are going to have good results. That means we don't have any part of our emission outside the band AND our signal is where the other ham can hear it. For SSB we must present the right sideband, too.

Once upon a time I got a headache sorting it all out. At that time the headache medicines had a commercial showing Thor's hammer inside a human head striking an anvil complete with lightning strikes. If you remember those you will know it was at least a week ago:)

Aargh. I may be wrong here! If I am, my apologies, it makes my head spin a bit. I’ll have to go fiddle with the radio and try it out.
