Re: Ubitx v5, nextion 3.5 display, AGC, and 3d printed case for sale

Can you link me to that case? I printed this one (link) but I'm getting electrical interference from the cable (I think). I couldn't find any other case that supports a 3.5 screen... most seem to be 3.2

Everything else I printed looks very similar apart from the face, so hopefully I'll only have to print the face and not the whole case.


Thanks much!!

Re: RX BCI filters

 

If anyone has been trying to order a kit and could not get the order through it was a slight mistake on my part please refresh and try it again now with the kit option!

sorry for the mix up and thank you Steve AA7U for bringing it to my attention.

First Contact using BItX40 - Lithuania! #bitx40 (Tried 7.277, too much BCI here!) #bitx40

Robert D. Bowers
 

I tried getting on 7.277, but was receiving solid BCI from an AM station on 7.275 making it impossible to hear anything but splatter (couldn't get clear audio when I tried to find out where it was from either).  I poked around a bit, and heard a guy in Lithuania calling down near 7.177.  I replied, and we got through!

(Laugh!)  First contact with the BitX40 - 5126 miles!  (Shows the importance of good band conditions!)

If I understand what you are trying to do, you must put yourself in the group which is authorized to use that port to get out (dial out) to devices.

In the EU as you know we are limited up 7200. Maybe it would be just convenient to use standard qrp frequencies (CW/SSB) to meet other qrpers.

Hi Jeff,
Thanks for the information IT Works - I am sure others will be helped by your suggestion also.
Not being attuned to unix commands you were a great help

Thanks Again

Re: 7.277mHz Sunday Afternoon

I try to be on 7.277 around 0:00 UTC (7:00 pm Central) Sunday evenings, and sporadically other times. I also use my µBitx mobile and I listen and check into Southcars at 7.251.

The case is from thingiverse, I only made the front panel for the larger screen.  I'll see if I can find the file.

Re: CAT on Linux OS

I have to admit that I wasn't being brilliant and didn't figure this out myself.  I had set up a Raspberry Pi with fidigi/grig and Raspbian to control an 817 according to directions I found. I was trying to figure out an answer to your question in a way that you would understand. I looked around for something which would explain the process and found the note I posted.  In Unix/Linux, many problems can be traced to permission settings. As Unix has its roots in big computers that many people use at the same time, permission to use parts of it are only allowed to certain people.   There are programs the administrators get to use and there are programs everybody gets to use. I have used Unix for a long time but I wouldn't say that I am an expert.  As with many of us, I kind of lean on the shoulders of others and contribute what I can.

Glad you got it working.

The HF Signals web site said that the Antuino would be on sale in June 2019, but there is no price or link to purchase.

Getting the boxes done took a while. I hope we can have it on sale by the end of the week.

JackAl uBitx Backetcase FS

PeteWK8S
 

Officially throwing in the towel on this one. Gone through several expensive 5 inch displays and even had one of the designers add a protection board to yet another new display. The display (or the protection board) failed in a puff of smoke within minutes of trying out the repaired display. The uBitx never stopped receiving just the display failed. However, I refuse to spend another dime or hour on this project. I've built many radios at least as complicated such as 2 all-SMD mcHF radios without such headaches.  

I'm not blaming anyone but just moving on.

So selling it as a case with mostly working parts just to salvage some value from this venture. What is included is a fully built, tested and working JackAL board, and working and tested V3 uBitx board, 2 encoders, push button, 3 stereo jacks, volume pot with on/off switch and a possibly repairable 5 inch display with protection board that failed at it's task, and the steel case I mounted it all in.

I'm asking $145 which includes shipping (US only). This is about the price of a uBitx board by itself. 

Please respond off the list direct to my email.  I will not be checking back here.  Email is  pmeier @ me . com

Squelch Control??

K2CRR@...
 

Maybe I have missed it, but has anyone devised a squelch circuit for the uBitx?  I often monitor a net for extended times and the constant "hash" is tiresome and I will eventually stop monitoring.

Tnx,

Hi Bob,
If you use kd8cec firmware, you have a facility "if-s"
Push if-s button and adjust the silder to minimum hash. All the best.

Re: Squelch Control??

 

Sarma,

 

The IF-S is “IF Shift”, it is not a squelch unless a new firmware update has given this function dual modes somehow???
