They're not I2C displays; they're the 3.5: TFTs for the analyzed.

The connection to my LCD is a real hack job: two 90 degree headers and a cable with a 180 degree twist and it works fine.

uBITx.net website

Mike Woods
 

I note that there were almost 3,000 messages on this email list in December and we are currently at 2364 messages in January (and we are not quite to the end of the month!).  If you are not following the traffic, or come to the party late, trying to extract helpful information from the list is not straight forward! That's not to say that the list and the files section aren't helpful.  They are fantastic in fact for emergent discussion!  But a mail group is not the best way for anybody to source tried and true information about anything.  A website is much better at summarising known facts, to prevent endless redesign of the wheel, and answering the same newbie question over and over again.

I figured I should do something about this, so check out http://ubitx.net

The website is at an early stage of development.  It will contain two types of information to begin with - a summary of some of the more interesting items that arise from list discussion, presented as "news" items and a comprehensive guide to constructing and modding.  

You can subscribe to the RSS feed to get news updates.

News items from the last 3 days include:
  • a "top board" for the uBitx (from Martin AE7EU)
  • removing the audio pop on T/R - a new approach (from Gary N3GO)
  • a new CW keying fix (from John AD0RW)
  • a discussion on IRF510 stabilisation fixes (from several list members).

I figured that these news items should reference the actual iogroups list items.  I will update some of the news stories that don't yet reference the original item. The news items have been summarised and/or edited lightly.

The other type of information on the website is intended to be a comprehensive guide to purchasing, assembling, fixing and modding the uBitx.   Static pages will summarise everything that a builder needs to know about a particular issue or extension.   Options for mods will be presented with recommendations for which ones are popular/proven.  Currently, I have begun pages covering the following (many of these have yet to be finished ...):

There's a lot more to be covered, just in the getting started section.  For example:
  • Reverse voltage and over-current protection
  • Microphone options
  • Wiring up an internal speaker, with an external phone jack
  • Wiring up a paddle and straight key
  • Getting support when things go wrong

I look forward to:

  • comments about the website's purpose, layout and example content
  • ways to improve and extend the website further
  • offers of assistance (directly to me at mhwoods@... please)

This will be a moderated website. I want to avoid the situation where  bum advice is shared with others that makes life a misery.

This is about short-cutting research time and eliminating blind alleys that detract from operating or modding time!

I'm off to a Ham Radio BBQ hosted by NZART Kapiti Branch (about 1/2 hour from me).   I look forward to reading the mail later today!  Brickbats, bouquets and all!

Re: Caveat Emptor!

I wasn't responding to John. The one I responded to, #40373, was on the same thread, and contained the quote that I posted. When I saw his post, I responded (#40375) . John jumped on me seven posts later (40382) because I mentioned the I2C issue, which are a problem for some OLED displays. Had he read back through the thread, he would have seen what I was responding to.

So, no, I'm not going to my room.

John, and others...

Yes...apologies to everyone that was confused by my post regarding the 0.92 inch displays.

I have been working with a different John on similar problems and just assumed that this
post was by the same John.  I should have read over the original post much more closely. 
The John I have been working with is in Australia and is obviously not John - WA2FZW
who posted about his 3.5 inch displays. 

I am quite embarrassed and apologetic for my error.  Next time I will RTM (Read The Mail)

There's a lot more to be covered, just in the getting started section.  For example:

* Reverse voltage and over-current protection
* Microphone options
* Wiring up an internal speaker, with an external phone jack
* Wiring up a paddle and straight key
* Getting support when things go wrong

I look forward to:

* comments about the website's purpose, layout and example content
* ways to improve and extend the website further
* offers of assistance (directly to me at mhwoods@... please)

This will be a moderated website. I want to avoid the situation where  bum advice is shared with others that makes life a misery.

This is about short-cutting research time and eliminating blind alleys that detract from operating or modding time!

I'm off to a Ham Radio BBQ hosted by NZART Kapiti Branch (about 1/2 hour from me).   I look forward to reading the mail later today!  Brickbats, bouquets and all!
