Don,

In thinking about this it will be a lot like people who pay no
attention to polarity when wiring up stereo speakers. When you wire up
a headset this way one speaker will be going forward while the other is
going backward.

I've worked on many stereo systems over the past 40 years where this
has happened. If you have asymmetrical damping or if the speaker
motors are not symmetrical you can get all kinds of funky beat notes,
dead spots, etc, especially at the lower frequencies where the audio
power is greater and causes greater motor movement. It also impacts the
clarity of the sound.

Have you ever noticed any kind of audio artifacts from feeding a stereo
headset in this manner?

Go here: http://www.audiocheck.net/audiotests_polaritycheck.php

Listen especially to the guitar in-phase and out-of-phase audio clips.
The brightness and clarity of the in-phase clip is startling. This can
make a huge difference in the ability to sort out voices in a crowded
band.

It may be why so many hams think their stereo headset are so poor when
used in such a manner.

You could just use a 10K potentiometer between VOL-H and U1=6, just like the existing volume control.  Then you could adjust it as needed.  I haven’t looked at the board, it may be possible to mount a trim pot on the RF board.

Hi Folks. A little update after some testing (no watt meter, just a dummy load and a Multimeter)

rv2&3 - 200 ma, mic ptt. Loud hallow = 1.7 amps but gate volts on FET are 3.8 & 3.99-4volts . is this not breakdown voltage? (slowly learning...)

If I adjust rv2 and 3 down I can take Gate Voltage to 2.5v but only 50ma on ptt with no audio or keying a tone and geting 1.3amps or into mic with a lung splitting cough @ 1.2amps.

Should I ignore gate voltage on FET and just adjust RV2&3 to 100ma each draw, on 12v(brown)

No idea of power out into load other than it can get warm.

Thanks

Re: Small problem on 20M #ubitx

 

Hi Neil,

I have the same problem when transmitting on my 20 meter EFHW antenna. The problem is too much RF near the radio. If you install a 1:1 common mode filter choke on your antenna feed line that will keep the RF from coming back down the feed line and into your radio. Also make sure your SWR is low. Until the weather warms up I can't use my 20 meter antenna on my uBixt. BTW, I have this problem on other radios in the shack also, not just the uBitx.

Re: Speaker Jack

Don,

I have to apologize here. Wiring the positive lead to the tip and the
ground to the ring does put the two headset speakers in series via the
two ground wires that are connected together. I realized this after
looking at your schematic. Kudo's.

This does have the impact that the speakers will offer twice the
impedance they are designed for. This probably won't be a problem in
most circumstances. In fact it will lessen the initial charging current
for any series isolating capacitor.

Re: B40 LM386 and µB TDA2822 and that 470µF Cap

I wired the two wires to the plug so they contacted the tip and middle element of the 1/8" stereo jack. That way my monaural or stereo connections both work fine. On the stereo the base ring never touches a conductor so both stereo channels are activated. The monaural plug will make contact properly as well. 

I don't remove or insert jacks from the plug whilst the radio is running. 

Re: B40 LM386 and µB TDA2822 and that 470µF Cap

Hi Tim! So to clear this up. So wire the "tip" only and use a 1/8" stereo to mono adapter for stereo headphones right? (That would work as a safe solution. Not saying it is the only one.)

Re: B40 LM386 and µB TDA2822 and that 470µF Cap

Mike,

How do the two speakers in a stereo headset get wired in series?
Usually the positive lead from one goes to the tip and the positive
lead of the other goes to the ring. Then they have common ground lead
connected to the sleeve.

Connecting one positive lead to the tip and the other positive lead to
ground doesn't wire the speakers in series. It leaves the speaker with
its positive lead wired to the tip with no return path to ground. It
leaves the speaker with its positive lead wired to ground with no
driving signal and no return path to ground either.

For the speakers to be wired in series the ground lead of one would
have to get connected to the positive lead of the next one. You can't
do that by grounding the positive lead of just one of them and leaving
the ground lead of both floating.

Seriously since the maximum supply for the TDA 2281M is 12V and absolute maximum is 15 volts, I suggest that a lower supply be used such as using a 7806 or 7805 regulator to supply the TDA. I had previously suggested a 7808 or 7809 but a 7806 or 7805 will be better.
The Data sheet also states that "Absolute maximum ratings are stress ratings only and functional device operation is not implied. The device could be damaged beyond Absolute maximum ratings."
The Data sheet suggests a 4Ω speaker for supply voltages between 3  and 6 volts single ended amplifier with an 8Ω speaker if using the two amplifiers in the IC as a bridge.
It is to be noted that the Data sheet measurements are made using 3 and 6V and NOT 12V.
Remember that as someone else had said, a component will sacrifice itself to protect the fuse (or something to this effect)

Thomas,

You pretty much nailed it. And there is an isolating capacitor on the
output, a 470uf one. It's a point I hadn't considered. The problem is
that when you connect that capacitor from the positive output of the
2822 to ground what happens to the 2822? It's going to look like a dead
short for audio. Is the 2822 designed to feed a dead short for AC? At
the very least you will get no audio output at the jack. At worst you
will get a large current load on the 2822 trying to feed the
short.

There is no reason to wire the output of the 2822 to both the

wire both headset leads to tip of the plug and only wire up
the tip lead on the socket. Then if someone inadvertently

I agree that the large charging current going into the 470uf
cap could stress the 2822, perhaps only causing a failure
after a number of on/off cycles. That's something that would
be hard to diagnose!

I have modified my schematic to show using a 47uf cap being fed
with a 1 amp fuse from the 2822. If I ever get a chance to
actually finish up my ubitx it will be interesting to see if
the 1 amp fuse is sufficient.

1. It doesn't matter what you would tell someone to do. What matters
is the wiring instructions provided for the radio.
2. Connecting the positive output to both the tip and the ring is not a
wiring error if a mono plug is never used. It is meant to allow the use
of stereo headphones with a stereo jack.
3. How do the left and right speakers in a stereo headset get wired in
series internally? All of my stereo headsets have separate leads for
the left and right speaker with a common ground. For them to be wired
in series would require separate ground leads for each speaker with the
ground lead of one tied to the positive lead of the next. They just
aren't wired that way. Connecting the positive lead of one speaker to
ground, i.e. the ring lead, simply doesn't put the speakers in series.

Re: Speaker Jack

Tim Gorman
 

You do realize than an 8ohm resistor in series with your 8ohm speaker
will cut your volume somewhere in the range of half, right?

Do you have enough volume output to be able to cut it in half?

I think the answer is to wire the 8ohm resistor up to the switched
contacts on the jack (or use an internal speaker wired to the same
terminals). This will limit the current in the 470uf capacitor if
nothing is plugged into the jack. If you have something plugged into
the jack then that should limit the charging current into the
capacitor.

The max current will flow at initial turn-on. The impedance of the
capacitor will be Zero regardless of its value so the current is
determined solely by the resistance in the circuit. An 8ohm resistor at
12 volts will see 1.5amp in the circuit. That's still pretty high. The
smaller you make the capacitor, say 47uf instead of 470uf, the quicker
the cap will charge (think RC time constant) resulting in less thermal
energy being input into the 2822.

Using a 16ohm internal speaker might be a better choice. Something
like
www.amazon.com/SPEAKER-REPLACEMENT-MAGNET-WATT-OHMS/dp/B00INBYT3C/ref=sr_1_13?ie=UTF8&qid=1520089328&sr=8-13&keywords=16ohm+speaker


That would bring the initial charging current to under an amp.

Just don't plug in anything external until the radio is turned on.

Small problem on 20M #ubitx

Neil Goldstein
 

Hi all, 

I have been using my uBITX in a case I purchased from Carl Beck, W5BEK.
I love the radio!

I have one issue going on.  When I transmit on 20 Meters the Raduino switches into menu mode (Band Select)
I'm sure this is a wiring issue, and I probably need to clean up the cross-wiring internally, but it's tough with the cross-connects between some of the components.  I am using VERY short wires to the antenna connector. 
My question to the group is: What should I do from the following list, or all of them, or anything else?

  1. Use shielded wire bundles to all of the pots and connectors (All Electronics has some nice shielded wire bundles in 2, 3, 4, and 5 conductors)
  2. Use some RG-174 to the antenna connector (about an inch, currently just wire)
  3. Tie all grounds together with the copper tape on the insides of the case
  4. Devise some sort of shield around the raduino

Thanks in advance

Re: CW S/N ratio problem

Gordon Gibby <ggibby@...>
 

I’m assuming you’re using a good antenna.
The noise figure of the front end should be comparable to that of most rigs.  In such a case, naturally generated background noise on active HF bands below the maximum usable frequency greatly exceeds that of the receiver. 

Therefore, when using a bandwidth of your choosing, the signal to noise ratio should be similar to that of any other radio.

You can adjust the bandwidth with audio or radio filtering. Audio is easier.
