20 SSB, CW soon.

40M only on the BitX40 but will be getting a uBitX shortly. Am primarily interested in 17M (and 40M) SSB.

Just another note:  After working for On Semiconductor in the power devices group for over 10 years (retired now), I will be testing some alternate
 TO-220 Mosfets for use in my BitX40.  I will post the info here on the group as soon as I have some results. I have found a couple of parts with similar gate charge values but with 1/2 the RDSon and double the current rating. More later.

Joe,

Gazooks ..i guess i'll throw in the towel for now. Thankyou Joe. I appreciate your going all out of the way to help me. In the meantime i'll order a Nextion and cross my fingers. It should arrive after the lockdown ends whenever that is. Unfortunately we dont have a Nextion outlet this neck of the woods. 

Thanks a ton again for your kind effort and support ( to Joe, Jack and Mike)

Until i find a diagnostic fix for this tft.....sayonara my dear friends.

Re: uBITS V6 Plus Project

Dennis Zabawa
 

Trhee comments:

- A=B and B=A is used on commercial radios so I emulated it in my design.  M>V describes moving memory data to the VFOs while V>M is the process of storing VFO data to a memory.

- Yes, the JackAl board has all this but, I like to roll my own, so to speak

- The AGC board is the Kit Projects AGC Board http://ubitx.net/2019/02/12/kit-projects-agc-board/ 
It is soldered to the PCB.  Beside providing AGC, it produces a voltage relative to the received signal level that can be read with a Teensy ADC pin.  I will calibrate the software to the Collins standard to get a valid S Meter display.

The screen shows it did not detect any touch capability 
No touch pin names, numbers or coordinates.
Without that information, we cannot support your specific tft.

The only software we use for getting display information are the mcufriends testing examples.

My search for the " test_8352B Branch on GitHub" by David Prentice was futile.
Please suggest a diagnostics program so I can get a screen that shows the result.
