It's an interesting AGC design - it takes audio from the top of the volume control pot and varies RF prior to the crystal filter. Has anyone successfully implemented this board and AGC scheme on a µBITX? I can't find any reports of success or of how the AGC performs on the group dedicated to the board, and can't find any indication that it's ever been installed on a V5 or V6 radio.

if you are enthusiastic about an IF AGC in the ubitx-- use a search engine (or look here in files) to find the Jackal schematic - it has an IF AGC circuit that could be employed, that seems to be derived from the hybrid cascode (W7ZOI) with less stages as I recall.
I find with an audio filter and audio AGC the ubitx is a decent rig to do some casual HF. But do explore circuits to your fancy. Speaking of the hycas, I built one a few years ago - got distracted by our club build of v4 ubitx (that needed some effort to tame) - so I need to think through what band(s) I will deploy the hycas in a receiver.
