Re: BITX20 made in brasil...!!

Hi all,
some additional measurement results (all loaded with 50 ohm):
- The output power of the oscillator is about 3 mw.
While measuring the output after the first mixer and increasing the
LF level until the HF output is not incresed gave the following
results (between brackets the reference numbers of Arv):
- LF output (to mixer): 1 volt pp. (1).
- Output of mixer: 0.6 volt pp. (2).
- output of Q11: 1 mw. (3)

Strange that Arv has much more power then I have on these points.
AC Signal Measurements:
1) LF: This signal becomes non-linear when the output goes above
1.4 to 1.6 volts P-P (Peak-to-Peak).
2) At the BFO Balanced Mixer with measurements taken from
the wiper of the 100 ohm potentiometer:
Varying the audio input (signal generator connected to
microphone input) causes 0 to 5.4 V P-P DSB output.
Unbalancing the mixer potentiometer causes a reading of
3.5 to 4.0 V PP with no audio input.
3) At the collector of Q11 (Tx DSB amplifier) the DSB signal
can be varied from 0 to 2 V P-P.

What I said about the 'calculated level' makes sense: if the output
power of the oscillator is about 3 mw, an expected conversion loss
of about 7 dB (likely more), the attenuator of -4dB, indeed the
measured 0.2 mw at that point looks realistic.

It also gives me a clue that I should try to make more output from
the oscillator (if I increase the 3 mw to 30 mw makes 10 dB
difference to the total output signal?).

The output of Q14 is 0.3 mw, output of the 2N2219 about 150 mw (with
much LF in the microphone stage). This means a gain of 27 dB (but I
am sure you should not measure it all with 50 ohm load).
What output do others have out of the local oscillator and the stage
with the 2N2219 (or 2N2218)?

Best regards,
Chris.

Re: BITX20 made in brasil...!!

Chris van den Berg
 

chris, in the exit of the 2n2218 (driver, correct?) is it that you
have 150mw?

Yes, I have. By the way, the transistor I use is a 2N2219 but this
makes no difference.

and in his entrance?
I will check this again. I remember that it was very little, I
remember I was suprised about the gain of the 2N2219 stage. May be I
posted it in an older message.

Are 150mw enough for exciting the irf510, to 6watts????
The IRF510 is driven by voltage. I did not make the final amp yet so
I do not know.

The voltage output of the first mixer will be measure again by me
also, I remember that almost no power output was reached at that
point. The output power (over 50 ohms) of the oscillator is about 3
mw, with a expected conversion loss of about 7 dB (likely more), the
output on the potmeter will be about 0.6 mw.

Best regards,
Chris.

Coil data for TOKO 10K type former

Dear Friends,

While going thru my old files I found this small text giving turns
vs inductance for TOKO coils ( Uploaded under files). This is not my
work but of an unknown person to whom I am greatful.

Table shows that abt 12 turns for the required 2uH for frontend
coils.

Hope many wanting to replace tap washers may find data useful.

I just used the scope to set up levels for the best looking DSB
signal. But you are right...we probably need to specify the proper
ratio for AF versus carrier level. That would help those without
an oscilloscope to set the proper operating point by using just
a detector and a DC voltmeter.

Farhan showed us how to build the BITX, now someone needs to put
together an alignment and operating manual.

There is an error in the info I sent you. I apparently
transposed the voltage readings for Base & Emitter of Q10.

The correction is shown below:

DC Voltage Measurements:

Q10 (Microphone Amplifier):
C = 7.0 V DC
* B = 2.3 V DC Actually is 3.0 V DC
* E = 3.0 V DC Actually is 2.3 V DC

Q11 (Tx DSB Amplifier)
C = 7.1 V DC
B = 2.4 V DC
E = 1.7 V DC

some data from my BITX17:
- very low output from the 1st mixer, 0,2 mw after the 22 ohm
resistor (one of my first messages in this group).
- after Q11 I measure about 1 mw over 50 ohm (I know that the
imprdance at that point is about 200 ohms).
- after the 2N2218, I measure about 150 mw output over 50 ohm. (the
measures voltage with an osciloscoop is 4 volt tt while whisling in
the microphone).
What do others have at this point?
Chris.

What measuring capability do you have available for debugging your BITX?
    Do you have an oscilloscope?
    Do you have a high-impedance DC voltmeter?
    Do you have an audio signal generator?
    Do you have an RF signal generator?
Knowing what test equipment you have available may help me provide additional
ideas and assistance.

Microphone amplifier audio output will look distorted after you connect it to the input of the BFO mixer.  This is due to the design of the singly-balanced mixer, and is not a problem.

Later today I will make some measurements on the microphone audio levels into and out of my mike amp, and some measurement on the output of my BFO mixer.  Then I will send you an email with those measurements for comparison with what you are experiencing.

    Without the linear amplifier stages you will only get 100 mw to 200 mw
    power out of your BITX. If your power output is way below that, then
    here are some places to start looking for the problem:

    1) Carefully check the resistor values you used around Q13 and Q14.
    If they are not correct it can cause a significant reduction in your
    power output.

    2) Temporarily connect a 0.1 mfd capacitor in parallel with the
    various bypass capacitors. The BITX20 frequency of 14 MHz is near the
    self-resonant point of some models of capacitors. Do this one
    capacitor at a time, so that you will know which capacitor might be
    the problem.

    3) Verify that the windings of T3 are polarized correctly. Getting
    this wrong will reduce your power to almost nothing. I know this from
    personal experience! 8-(

    4) Make sure that the BFO frequency is adjusted properly. It
    should be just outside the passband of your IF filter. I adjusted
    mine so that the BFO signal sets at the -20db point on the filter curve.

    5) Verify that all diodes are good in both mixers. A single bad
    diode can significantly reduce the transmit signal level.

    6) Sometimes a transistor will not have adequate high frequency
    response, but will test good on DC or low-frequency based testers.
    Substitution of known good transistors might help if you think this
    might be the problem. I swapped several transistors into the
    circuitry until I found the best performing ones for each circuit segment.

    Maybe someone who has followed Farhan's plans exactly could make DC
    and AC signal level measurements for each stage of the BITX and post
    those on this forum. I would do this, but I have already modified my
    BITX to the point that my measurements would probably not be correct
    for a 'standard' transceiver.

    Like Chris, I used 10.7 MHz IF transformers in my BITX front end.
    However, there is no reason you could not use appropriate TOKO coils,
    assuming that they are the proper inductance and turns ratio.

    If you use generic 10.7 MHz IF transformers for a BITX front end, you
    may have to remove the internal capacitor and replace it with a
    different value in order to obtain resonance at the operating frequency.

    My method was to remove the internal capacitor by breaking it with a
    small screwdriver. Then I lightly coupled the low-impedance winding
    of that coil to my Grid Dip Meter using one turn of hookup wire. Next
    I connected my "calibrated variable capacitor" to the high impedance
    winding and tuned for resonance at the desired operating frequency.
    At that point it was easy to read the dial on my calibrated capacitor
    to find the approximate value of fixed capacitor that was necessary
    for the actual circuit.

    This same procedure works fine for resonating ferrite cored toroids,
    and for Farhan's air-cored toroids using tap-washer formers.

    Gook luck with your BITX transceiver.

    Re: Mixer question

    Arv Evans <arvevans@...>
     

    Jay

    Trifilar-wound transformers (both toroid cored and air-cored) are a bit different from traditional
    magnetically coupled transformer designs.  In a trifilar-wound transformer the windings
    function as a ' transmission line ' and thus need an evenly distributed capacitive and magnetic
    coupling between the wires that make up a transmission line segment of the winding.
    Twisting the wires before placing then on the core makes that happen.

    While it might work to 'braid' the wires, you would probably need to build a test circuit with
    some fairly sophisticated test gear to verify that the new transformer was actually providing
    the transmission-line function, and that the impedance transformations were the same as
    those obtained using twisted conductors. I am having a hard time visualizing what the
    magnetic fields would look like for a set of 'braided' conductors!


    However, there might also be an easier way to evaluate the braided versus twisted
    technique.  If you were to build up a pair of one-to-one baluns for 50 ohm impedance
    (one being twisted and one being braided) and then try each individually in your
    transmitter-to-antenna connection, you could get a fairly good idea of the relative
    effectiveness of each method.  You would need an SWR bridge on both the input
    (transmitter side) and the output (antenna side) of each transformer.  A comparison
    of the indicated SWR, minimum SWR, power loss, and effect on system tuning
    would be interesting to see.

    This is an interesting thought.  If you build your BITX20 using 'braided' conductors in your
    balun type transformers, please let us know the results.

    Hi all,
       I have a quick question on the mixer transformers used in the
    BITX20, I can benefit from others' experience. When I started the
    trifilar winding I noticed that it is quite easy to "braid" the 3
    wires together. In Farhan's website the technique describe is
    to "twist" the 3 wires together at the rate of about 8 twists per
    inch.
       Now the question, will braiding be better, worse or no
    significance? Braiding make the winding much easier and keeps the
    wires tight, that is why I prefer it.
       And, I have no prior experience "rolling" my own mixers. Thanks in
    advance for replies.

    Regards,
    Jay
