In page px there is something wrong with the pic Id which is the picture in p1. I’m not even sure there should be a p1 in the px page.

Ahh okay,  no worries looks like I’ll have to put it on the to do list. I do like the functionality.

Hi Sam, I am using your ubitx_35_complete_Enhanced_a.tft. Looks really good.  However I am at the stage where I am tweaking things and having the nextion card reader at the bottom is a PITA.  I tried your instruction to use the .hmi file, click on the display type, select display and select 270 degrees, but when I attempt the compilation, I get error messages.  Is there anything else I should be doing?
Many thanks again.

HI Sam,

 

I think I did everything I needed to get the spectrum and CW stuff in my version. Looks like my version had both completely excluded. I added the pages and the necessary code but I don’t see the spectrum.

 

Then I did some checking on the hamskey.com site and noticed that we only get that spectrum when you do the stand alone signal analyzer.  I have a basic sensor on the A7 line.

 

http://www.hamskey.com/2018/08/ubitx-firmware-cec-version-1097beta.html

 

please let me know I’m not crazy lol. I even used a unmodified version from the Nextion lcd batch you can download from the hamskey website. It didn’t show up there either.

 

Also now that I have it all setup I don’t get a reading on the graph to the right. So something went wacky. I would like to make that SSA with another nano, I guess this to be continued.

It hides the cw info while on. You can pluck the code off of the hmi's below

HI All.
Thanks for the interest,
Its been slow going, I'm about 95% complete, just need to confirm spacing/sizing and go over it all again...

Ill get there, eventually.

Re: bitx40 dumb questions!

The LM2940CT-12 I cited above has a dropout of around 0.25v at 500ma.
I doubt you would notice any ill effects, if using it to power PWR1 but not PA_PWR1.

Adrian,

On the Bitx40, Q13 and R141 can get hot enough to fail on long transmissions,
especially if the rig is operating at over 12v..
If feeding it 14.5v, I suggest you add a 3 terminal regulator such as an LM2940CT-12 or LM7812
inside the rig to drive 12.0 volts into the PWR1 connector, which supplies most of the rig.
But make a direct connection from the 14.5v source into PA-PWR1 to power the IRF510 drain,
since that will want to draw an Amp or two.
The IRF510 is the only place where the extra voltage can be put to good use, giving more power out.
The IRF510 should be happy enough with PA-PWR1 of 20v or more if properly heatsinked.

hi! Thanks!

I'm worried about the minimum input voltage across the 12v regulator though. It's solar, so sometimes it's going to drop below 14v. I'll go hunt around and see if I can find a regulator that'll match my needs.

Ah, yes, to both. If I'd get my cranium out of the other end, it would have been obvious :) 

I'll have to follow suit. It makes too much sense not to, though edit/exchange/look/edit/repeat is exactly the way it went.

Dave just sent me instructions so I'm good to go.

Provided switch is a 3-way DPDT on/on/on. My kit arrived today. Anyone got wiring instructions?


Re: Kit projects AGC install - extremely frustrated.

 

Hi,

Three throws means three separate contacts for each pole.  So this would require three contacts for each pole and one contact each for the pole itself.  Thus eight contacts are needed for a DP3T switch.  The on-on-on specification does not change that.

Perhaps the switch is like one of those below?



Cheers,


Mark.

Re: Ted

The hmi I was working with from CEC didn’t have the spectrum on the main page.  I suppose I can figure out how to get it there. Is there a link to a hmi with it included I can load up. Any size will do. But then it will hide the CW info unless it goes away when in CW mode.

Kevin,

That pic was from the amateurradiokits install picture repo. I'm pretty sure I tested for polarity before soldering and it was correct. I don't remember the physical orientation of the fan.

MRM, I like your approach, which looks pretty foolproof to me.  I used a different approach - SS resettable fuse, PNP FET reverse polarity protection followed by 5V regulator to supply just the nextion.  You have spurred me to re-examine the PNP FET connections.  A job for later on.
