If this would work it would be far cheaper than replacing the relays. I have seen on ebay and they are not very cheap.

Has anyone tried adding a 0.1 mfd across each of the relay coils, and additional 0.1 mfd
to ground from various places in the DC going to these relays.  Suspicion is that some of
the unwanted coupling might be via the relay coils and connecting traces.

I found good reduction of spurs with the following mods:

1. Replace L5 with an SMD inductor 680nH or 681, mount at right angles to old toroid

2. Replace L7 as above.

The 45MHz filter is not required and you get almost the same power out as stock boards.

If you ALSO have 45MHz the spurs get further reduced by a little but loss of output power.

I used what I remember buying Murata inductors 1206 size.

I only just noticed it after I posted my reply to Iz, but your mod is now up on the website!

A very simple fix, albeit requiring the ordering of surface mount parts ...  The question is why does it work to reduce the spurs?

The latest version of the uBITx is the v4, which doesn't have an audio chip at all (it has discrete transistors). 

The v4 board MAY have audio issues ... a small proportion of owners have experienced audio distortion.  There is a known fix for this issue and the fix is documented on ubitx.net.  The audio also has a bit lower output than the v3 board.

Well you know how these things are, every time you vary one thing, something else changes... so it's hard to be totally precise. But approximately the gain is split equally between the two stages. 13dB each.

Yes, exactly what I said in my initial post on this topic. The uBITX has many problems (or depending on your viewpoint, challenges, minor issues, what you get in an experimenter's radio etc etc.). This amp kit fixed at best, the final two stages only. Garbage in, garbage out...

What it does show is:

1) Good PCB layout, short traces and short leads work wonders

2) IRF510's are good for the job - it isn't necessary to spend $$ on fancy RD15HVF1 or its brothers and sisters or uncles and cousins...

3) Surface mount components aren't necessary to assure stability either.

Note... even Chinese IRF510's do a great job - once you find the right and reliable supplier. All Ferrites in the kit are sourced from Diz at http://www.kitsandparts.com , I'm a highly satisfied (and not insignificant) customer!

Since most of these larger relays have the long armatures which run parallel to the coil and the coil is not shielded  (right ?), there would be RF coupling between the armature and the coil. It would also seem that, for a given voltage, higher current relays would imply larger wire, fewer turns, and less inductance for Port to Port coupling (right ?).

Can't do much to reduce inner relay coupling but you could reduce relay to relay coupling by using a small RF choke (100uH) in the both existing relay coil leads. I like the WireWound ones from Bourns (CM322522-101K1).

Should be easy enough to replace Q13 with a through-hole 2n3904.
And should work fine.

You need to first remove the old surface mount MMBT3904 at Q13.
Heat up the pin that's alone along one side with a soldering iron and lift that pin off the board a little bit with a knife.
Then do the same with the other two pins.

Solder the leads of your new 2n3904 to the appropriate ends of R132 and R134.

Re: QSX 10W HF Linear PA kit

Jerry,

I agree that we need more than one MMIC for the TX gain stages.

My initial idea was/is  to replace the "famous" Q90 with a three transistor W7ZOI amp (gain = 15 dB) may be using even BFR106 instead of the MMBT3904.

The output power of this stage may be limited to about +3 dBm as W7ZOI   stated when using this amp in bidirectional mode. used in a single direction the linear oputput may be higher.   The next stage has to deliver the necessary +14 dBm or even a bit more for "headroom") -- for this stage a MMIC could be one choice or another suitable "medium power transitor" with a high ft.

First off, the uBitx as is does pretty well on 80/40/20 meters.
Power drops off on the stock uBitx as we go up to 15 and 10 meters.
There's 6 months worth of discussion in this forum about how best to 
get power up to where it should be on those high bands.
Tough to do, most attempts failed when modifying the existing uBitx power amp.
Grafting the QSX amp into the uBitx could mostly solve that.
Could also solve issues of power amp energy coupling back into the IF amps,
especially if the power amp is off in it's own box.

But the current signal levels in the IF amps and mixers create trouble with spurs
on those upper bands.  Not too much point in going to the QSX power amp unless
we clean that stuff up first.  And while we're at it, improve IMD and carrier leakage
in those IF amps and mixers as well.
 
If we assume we increase local oscillator CLK2 into the first mixer at D1,D2 up to 7dBm,
then the maximum signal into it from the 45mhz IF during transmit should be at least 10dB down
from that, or about -3dBm.  The mixer probably has a loss of around 6dB, and the 30mhz LPF
might lose another dB.  So if we replace everything from Q90 on out to the IRF510's with a
new power amp, that new amp will see a max of -10dBm, or 0.1mW going in.
This new QSX amp has 26 dB of gain for 10W out (where 10W out is +40dBm),
so needs 40dBm-26db = 14dBm going into the QSX amp (as Henning has said).
We need at least an additional 24 dB of gain to go from -10 dBm out of the 30mhz LPF
to +14dBm into the QSX amp.  That could easily be done with two MMIC stages,
and there are many such MMIC's capable of delivering 14dBm of power to the QSX amp.

Some extra gain in those two MMIC's would be good so we can keep the signal through
the mixers even lower, and have some headroom for an adjustment such as RV1 of the uBitx.

Mouser 630-ADA-4743-TR1G



If you plan to bring the power up to 20W by boosting the supply voltage into the QSX amp,
then you will need another 3dB of power going in, so 14dBm+3dB=17dBm into the QSX amp.
And at 20W, you would want heavier transmit LPF's than the ones provided on the uBitx.

Also, it may be a good idea to have a 3dB attenuator between the MMIC's and the QSX amp
to keep it stable.

It will be interesting to see how clean we can make the uBitx as an exciter.
May need better transistors in the 45mhz stage, certainly want less gain
on the two transmit side IF amps.  Want 7dBm of drive from the local oscillators.
Perhaps the transformers in the mixers are not ideal, especially at 45mhz.
Raj has made considerable progress in sorting this some of this out.
 
I've got a QSX amp on order. 
Looking forward to playing with it.
But the uBitx has other issues to fix before we make use of the QSX amp
to increase power out on those upper bands.

I just ordered one of Your 10 W PA kits and quickly read over the assembly instruction.

Concerning the UBITX: the PA delivers 26 dB of gain, so for 10 W output the input power for the PA is +40 dBm - 26 dB = +14 dBm This power can be easily achieved with only one MMIC e.g. one of the GALI amps--- or a discrete verions (BS170)?

As You also offer LPF kits, the problems of the uBITX can be obsolete, but requires extra space for these extra boards.

One thing I m missing are the information about the P1dB pointz ( 40 dBm)? and IMD performance.

A few things. Are you using a Nextion, have you built the extra stuff necessary (ie, another arduino nano?).

(I have a question about that, there's got to be a script/hex specifically for the 2nd nano, right?)

I have yet to put my uBitx all together, getting everything together first (Nextion 3.2")

But I think you need to use Memory Manager in order to get the s-meter working.

Or I could be completely off-base, as I'm very new to all this.
