Hi Malcom,

Thank you for sharing your schematic for the unit. Will check the junk box for parts before ordering parts, or possibly David's kit. I'll check your QST lead for further information. Thank you again for your helpful response. Still have the main, and BFO to calibrate. Have had no joy without test equipment, frustration reigns!

For bitx 40 they can load the original firmware with analog tuning pot.
Hope this serves the need of friends who need a raduino for their BITX40.

Hi David,
I went to website and watched the utube video. Nice unit in operation. Have spot in panel next to the headphone jack for the led. Thank you for suggesting this option. 
Have never done any SMD construction, would probably have to go with ready made.

Re: Very cheap, 24 cent microprocessors. #firmware #i2c

One thing that really appealed to me about the MS51 when I read Tom's first post was its potential as an I/O expander for something like an ESP32. What makes it attractive for that are the I2C and SPI interfaces. And since they are so low cost and readily available directly from nuvoTon it is feasible to use them for something as simple as interfacing just a button and/or LED as well as the other applications that Tom has suggested.

I found lots of TSSOP 20 to DIP adapter boards available on Aliexpress for about 8 cents each to help get around the SMT issue.

I've used the DigiSpark boards (http://digistump.com/products/1) for several projects including this keyer:

Inline image

While not as cheap as a bare ATTiny85 ($8), it plugs directly into the USB cable and is programmed using the Arduino IDE which is very convenient.

Another option but not quite as cheap are the ATtiny series microprocessors. They are 8 bit and quite easy to setup to program using the Arduino IDE with an Arduino as the programmer.
I recently setup an ATtiny85 to produce a 40hz square wave signal for someone who wanted to stare at 2 leds to lower their chance of  Alzheimers.
Hook 5v to it and tie a led to one lead and ground and it works. When I checked the frequency was 40.02hz and stable. Not sure about it helping with Alzheimers but I do find these are useful for smaller projects that need less IO.
There are quite a few devices in the family, I mostly use the ATtiny85 and 84 devices.,

Re: Need Raduino for bitx 40 #radiuno #bitx40

I think you have to recognize that this is somewhat like asking someone to sell you their intermediate frequency amplifier, or, perhaps the fuel injector out of their automobile.  

This is not the same as asking someone to sell you an aftermarket spray can of matching color.  This is an Integral  part of the entire device, and the entire device is a kit.    So one might reasonably expect to have to do a bit of work to replace a portion of a kit that had gone bad, if the manufacture no longer stocks that fuel injector!

I provided you with information on how you could build your own, and I suspect there are other possibilities offered if you look around, but the rest is somewhat up to you.  You’ve had and offer of the entire automobile, which is quite reasonable, but no one yet is offering to rip the fuel injector out of their working vehicle to help you.   They may have course and that’s their business.   

I think you’ll benefit more if you take the time to understand how all this works,  which is one of the goals of 97.1

Been googling for weeks. There's some unknown guy selling a clone on Ebay, I don't trust that. Ashar Farhan's site doesn't sell the original Raduino, They just have the new LCD one that will not fit the case I have. W0EB is not selling them anymore. I don't have the facilities to do much building right now, so my options are, a kit (I haven't found one) or fully assembled. If anyone can respond with a link to one of those two I would appreciate it (even if I have to buy the components individually.)

uBitx v6 Microphone #v6

Rene
 

Hello to all, here we go again. When i connect the uBitx to the dummyload(still no licence) and i push on tx on microphone, my receiver(mvt 7110) with earplug, gives a verry loud witle, tone on the transmitting frequntie.
All the bands i tryed and on all the places the same tone. So i tryed to disconnect the speaker and microphone and the push on tx, same problem.....so no audio in and stil the high tone??
somebody maybe same problem??
what could be the problem??
