It would also be nice if someone could design a case for 3D printing.

It would be better if someone came up with a design that could be laser cut locally.

New blog post and video -

I added the FT857d CAT control library from Pavel Milanes (CO7WT) to the control sketch.  It was pleasantly easy to integrate.

I have had CTS for years as well. I went to an Atlas Chiropractor and my problems have greatly improved.

Greetings Jack,

I am interested in the keyboard CW keyboard/keyer chapter you offered. The CTS has returned after three operations, and over two years of recovery time. Still enjoy CW, but spend most times listening on the sidelines, and not getting in on the fun. The various keys are on the desk, but used rarely. Thank you.

Re: FS: Unbuilt Bitx40 "kit" - SOLD

Thanks everyone for your interest in my unbuilt Bitx40 - it has found a new "forever home" in Michigan.

Hello all,

I have come across an un-built, in-opened Bitx40 kit from Nov. 2016 I'd be willing to let go for $50 shipped ConUS. Let me repeat that - the package is unopened, still sealed tight just as HFSIGNALS sent it to me.

The details of this discontinued, no longer available kit are here:


This would be a great project for the current shelter-in-place situation, and there's plenty of time to sort out the build before ARRL Field Day next month, when the bands will be rich with targets for this QRP Radio.

If interested, please contact me directly at:

Re: TX / RX uBitx V6 relay sticking

 

Hi Amie,

From ver5 on, I think the rigs are designed to have the 10m LPF in at all times.  Since this help with reducing upper harmonics, and there is no harm to leave it on all the time, you might want to do this too.

Re: CW Menu missing CEC v1.2 Ubitx v6

Evan Hand
 

Thank you Vic, Those do open, however, the 3.5" basic HMI file is the 2.4" or 2.8" file size on the 3.5" screen.  That is from the Editor view.  The other links are full-screen versions, where the backgrounds were expanded, and other edits made to use the full screen.  The 2.8" version is already full screen.

Not sure why the link that I got from the HamsKey site was corrupted.  I will need to scan my computer again just to be sure I do not have an issue.

Again, Thank you for getting back to me.

Re: CW Menu missing CEC v1.2 Ubitx v6

Vic WA4THR
 

Evan, I never used the editor, and just downloaded and installed first the V2, and later the V3 GUI software to my 2.8" Nextion, so I can't speak to the problems you mention. However, the link you reference seems different to what I get following the KD8CEC links:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1CpfVWastQRHWSDt_TC9Dd2PHnLdrG_9a/view
so perhaps try those?

Re: TX / RX uBitx V6 relay sticking

Gerry Kavanagh
 

As others have said, they are through-hole. I have had little luck removing multi-pin through-hole components in the past so decided to try one of the 'low temperature' solders, like ChipQuik. This worked very well and clean-up afterwards was also very straightforward. YMMV of course, but I can only say what worked for me.

Re: Microphone capsule Manufacturer #v3

 

I have very good luck with JLI elements. I have used this one on both uBitx and Bitx40's in the past.

https://www.jlielectronics.com/microphones/com-mic-jli-52b/

They make a number of other elements that may also work in 1-2$ range.

Hello John,

There is a separate setting for the CW BFO in the settings. Scroll through the options after getting in setting mode, it is in the CW section if I remember well. I suspect yours is set too far off.

I don't remember about the rig transmitting CW in SSB mode as I modified the CEC software after initial install. But if it is there it would be for tuning purposes I suspect.

Thanks. I will give it a look in the morning.

Re: New V6 on the air

@KF4ZGZ
 

There is a WPM button on the front touch panel.
I was looking for the iambic settings in the set up menu. I have yet to try the ubitx on cw. Still tinkering with the enclosure.
I have fab skills, just not equipment.
Im gonna play with it as is for a while before changing anything .... the favorites is an upgrade I will do when the time comes.
Does anyone know if the enclosure and stuff is for sale separately ?
