Has any used this board in their ubitx, and if so, how's it working? How was the installation? Any gotchas?

Maybe the reference is to the mechanical "zero" adjustment which most meters have.   Success would depend on the available adjustment range.

Edge meter

Mike WA0YCN
 

Has anyone found an edgewise meter with full travel to replace the one in the amateurradiokits AGC kit that has center zero?

Re: Squeel and intermittent loss of audio v5

Ok. Thanks, must have been lucky with mine. Will go and check though as I have put another jack socket under the existing key jack wired for a paddle,
For those that have the problem, perhaps a little hot melt glue might do the trick.
It doesn't appear to affect most people though.

Howard, the problem is not the main board, it's the smaller accessory board. For it to fit correctly it must line up with the three pre drilled holes in the front panel so it can't be raised.

There is a wrong wiring diagram with the kit, the brown and black wires to the volume potentiometer are reversed, black should go to centre contact (wiper), brown to outer and red to other outer contact.looking from the back of the potentiometer (volume control ) with the 3 pins to the top, red is left, black centre and brown to right.
For the encoder board wiring pin 1 the orange wire, is shown going to the FB contact which is the push switch of the encoder, when you push the shaft of the encoder it will short this wire to the brown wire (pin 3) which is and.
Connecting pin 1 to pin 3, or FB to GND then disconnecting, should change the LCD display which will say BAND?   ----->
Con/discon should put you back to normal.
If you are getting a relay click and CW on the display - have you installed the 4.7k resistor? You MUST have this installed or the Ubitx will go into CW transmit mode regardless of the encoder.
Does the tx LED glow red ?

1) Audio - when I turn up the volume, there is a tone that increases in pitch, then goes to static about half way from low to high.
2) When I turn the encoder it starts with LSB 7.150, the relay click sound happens and it  says CW - nothing else happens if I push in the encoder stem.  No frequency change or other options.

On the encoder I had black, red, brown, and orange wire.  I assume that orange is yellow in other online photos and is wired accordingly. 
I'm looking for some guidance.

Re: Troubleshooting uBitx - newbie #ubitx-help

very important you wire up the morse key jack and at least the single pull up resistor or it will imediatly go into CW transmit and the tone you hear is probably the CW sidetone.

Read about that as it will no work right without the pull up resistor etc.

Re: Squeel and intermittent loss of audio v5

This should not be a problem as the kit of parts that comes with the case has extra long stand offs for the main board.
DO NOT use the ones that come with the circuit board, only use those with your own case/box.

Good to know. I just started assembling my uBitx and will be putting it into the Amatuer Radio Kits enclosure.

As I said, they originally had a 3 el vertical array on MW but one of the masts had collapsed when one of the parafil guys melted due to the high intensity field and collapsed during a storm .

2.2mH is a large value. I guess its purpose be protection against statics. 1uH has is a low impedance at MW providing some highpass but maybe not enough in presence of a nearby station. Try it in any case.
