Does the side band selection of USB or LSB affect only the transmission function?
I have repeated the BFO & frequency adjustment procedure outlined in Ashur’s video several times. I cannot hear any difference between the receive audio after tuning in a voice broadcast when I change from the LSB to the USB setting. (I am comparing my uBITX experience to my experience with an RTL-SDR dongle on my laptop where the selection does make a difference.) Changing to CW on the uBITX v6.1 does make a difference in what I hear when listening to CW broadcasts.
Are there any other adjustment or troubleshooting instructions that I need to follow to set up and adjust the v6.1 so that it will operate properly?
Thanks for your patience.

Re: R1.4.0 Software Release #ubitx #nano #v6 #ubitxv6

 

Reed,

Interesting discovery, I have a spare Raduino with a touch screen on it, I uploaded the sketch onto that and I have the same problem as on my radio, no touch screen which points to the sketch. Strange that it did work for a while before it broke. Any thoughts? Next I will re download R1.4.0 and start over.

Power fans from J1 #ubitxv6

Can I tap 12v power from J1 just behind the power input to run a couple of fans?  Figure I'll just use the positive and negative terminal and skip the middle one.

Re: R1.4.0 Software Release #ubitx #nano #v6 #ubitxv6

 

Hi Reed,

I've been playing around with R1.4.0 and was going through checking my Calibration settings, when I got to 'Screen' I chased the x around the screen and then it just went blank, after a reboot I now have no touch screen. So, I reloaded the sketch and I still don't have any touch screen. I can still navigate around by using the encoder. Any idea what happened? BTW, I really like the color change in the tuning windows, it's a lot easier to read at different angles. I also like that the accelerated tuning seems to be tamed or non existent. Thanks for the effort.

I was looking over that project and was like holy crap That's some hardcore stuff you guys did.  out of the different firmware's I've used I really like reeds because it's very easy to use and it's got a nice clean interface.  If he does jump to a different board I'll probably jump with him.  I'm not much of a programmer but I am a tinkerer and probably the next few projects I'm going to do on my uBitx is improved the cooling which I have an idea for that just haven't gotten to it yet.

Re: Frequenti Calibration ubitx v5.0 standaard+BFO

Hello Gerrit U

 

First: think that every Ubitx 5.0 has different calibration.  They are all a little different!

 

But it will help if you know the values from other Ubitx 5.0.

 

When i was starting with the Ubitx 5.0 it was almost impossible to calibrate it..at that time; until

 

I got the values from another Ham.

 

Now i am the owner of two Ubitx V5.0 and I will give you the values from both of them.

 

Both i modified them withs a Nextion 3.2 and a Nextion 5 “display.

 

  1. Master   122500        2) SSB     11055570
  2. Master    150440       2)  SSB    1105500

 

One of thisUbitx V5 i calibrated with the original display and software. So you don’t need other display and software.

 

 

So give it a try.

 

 

It will be much easier if you install KD8CEC user interface; so you can use UBITX manager.

 

 

Hope you can use i and find a good solution.

Improve hackability proposal #homebrew

Hi guys,
I especially address to Mr Farhan, what about adding in the next uBITX version some pins in tactical position, eg in parallel with the IF filter, making the rig more simple to modify without massive circuit intervention?
It is just an idea I want to share.

Sending the link to github as a reply, since I've discovered from working with folks on this forum that a bunch of email providers filter out and don't deliver emails with github links:

R1.4.0 Software Release #ubitx #nano #v6 #ubitxv6

Reed N
 

I just pushed version R1.4.0 of my software fork for the stock uBiTXv6 Arduino Nano. It includes a LOT of back-end changes, but only a couple user-facing updates:
  • There's now a designated spot in the code to set your callsign
  • There's now a save/recall for your favorite frequencies
  • New icon for numpad and favorites
  • Menu settings now show you what the current setting is, as a reference when adjusting (especially useful for tweaking things like BFO)
If anybody runs into major bugs, I might try and knock them out, but no promises, mostly because this build uses 30718 of the 30720 bytes available on the Arduino Nano, and it works "good enough" for me at the moment.

Speaking of which, this might be my last release on the Nano, before migrating to either ESP-32S or Teensy4.0, because while working in a space and processing constrained environment has been fun, at this point it's becoming more struggle than enjoyment to add features. I've written up a bunch of additional information in the project README.md, so that anybody wishing to add features to the Arduino Nano beyond this release has a spot to start. If somebody does add features, send me a pull request :)
