Hi Reed,
Thanks for your answer. I will definitely evaluate that. Have a nice day.

Hi Evan,
Thanks for your answer. I drawing new PCB and GNDREF and GND confused my mind. I thought maybe GNDREF is directly connected to the earth, but it cannot be independent of the others. But all GNDREFs I understand will depend on GND.

Server or domain. You can have multiple domains on the same server, certificates are usually issued per domain, the ones for a full server is usually quite expensive.

Re: Nextion Display on uBITX #ubitx #nextion

Heh,

I was in contest, really just one of the sprints with 4 watts CW. From 1000 miles away I got a 599 report! With a lousy antenna, too. Maybe it was true...

I only had to send my info *once*. I don't tell how much power I am running unless it is part of a contest report (it wasn't this time). But in some events QRP stations are worth more points:) That always helps with 'propagation'.

Some of us have figured out that the spouse might be listening and then gets upset with the other ham for spending all that money on fancy gear when we can get through with very much less. Try living with that:)

Thank you,
My favorite is that I get a report of 59 or 20 over S9, then when they find out you are running QRP, all of a sudden they can't hear you. It all adds to the spice of life.

Re: uBiTX #v6 - First steps after assembly #v6

Hi Evan,

many thanks for sharing your thoughts, I totally agree with you. I prefer to approach the capabilities of the µBiTX in little but successful steps, according to the motto "The journey is the reward" ;o)
I will proceed in calibrating the radio like build out of stock and afterwards upgrade the display to Nextion like described in the link you provided.

You're on point. It really depends what you want out of your radio.

Re: uBiTX #v6 - First steps after assembly #v6

Urs,

I apologize for answering your question to Reed, but could not help myself.  Here is a link to the ubitx.net post on the v6 mod to use a 2.8" Nextion display.  Included is a Word document that goes into more detail on how he did it.
https://ubitx.net/2020/01/06/a-v6-nextion-display-conversion/

As far as performance improvement with a Teensy upgrade, I would not do that unless you have plans to use the increased processing power of the Teensy for other things than rig control.  If you are planning some of the JackAl features, then maybe you should look into that mod, as it is different than the Nextion.  I have not read where the KD8CEC software has been ported to the Teensy.  Most of the Teensy modes were for the stock display, to improve the performance of that combination.  There is developed code for the Teensy using the processing power of that controller to get performance improvements that Reed is doing with software optimization. 

Since you already have the Nextion display, I would also look into the further mods that Dr Lee has done on the Hamskey blog.  The second Nano for further processing capabilities including spectrum display, the Memory Manager software, as well as the S meter and others that I have forgotten are what lead me to the KD8CEC modifications.  The best advice that I can give is to do online research and figure out the path that you would like to follow.

Above are my thoughts.  Reed may differ, and that is OK with me.  He has more experience with the v6 than I do, which is none.

Hi Urs,

Getting both a bad nano and bad touch screen definitely made for a rocky start. I'm glad you're up and running now.

TSW has a teensy 4.0 adapter, and there's also the JACKAL which has some extra filters and such, and runs on teensy 3.6.

I don't have a Nextion, and I don't know of a build guide for converting the v6 off hand, but as I understand it, it's not too difficult.

Hi Reed,

finally managed to enter settings menu, s. screenshots below, after doing the same modification on the Master Code sketch as on the IO-Debug code.
Navigation works now through rotating the encoder and button press. Now the calibration etc can begin ;o)

Many thanks for your guiding me to this point.

Re: V6

Heb hetzelfde, maar de microfoon is niet goed, de bfo- en freq-instellingen zijn een groot probleem, het zendvermogen is ongeveer 1 tot 4 watt bij 13,8 volt. Dus niet alles is goed. Ontvangen is echter super, maar ik had een radio op maandagochtend geloof ik. Veel mensen hadden geen problemen. Als je goed bent in elektronica, koop dan de radio, if you are like me🤔 basic electronics and as hobby nice, consider the money you pay for this radio or for example a 2hand icom or kenwood. At the moment for me no time to complete the searching for making this radio working good, after summer gonna try again.

Re: uBiTX #v6 - First steps after assembly #v6

Hi Reed,

I didn't study the procedure for replacing the stock display with a Nextion in detail. Which is the latest instruction applicable for uBiTX v6?
I was reading it is possible as well to replace the Nano with a Teensy 4.0, which would enhance performance?
