Re: Ubitx and raspberry all in one. Digital mode FT8 - IK1ZVJ. #ft8

Yes and no.

It sat on the table at the recent Belton Hamfest in Texas for two days before I bought it.

Considering what I paid for it ($70), it wasn't cheap, but it also wasn't snapped up by Collins collectors. It's a nice shell with nothing inside it, nothing more - it's not a sacred relic, and it's an easily obtainable item in the collector world.

(My view of the Collins market is obviously skewed by my proximity to Collin's Richardson facility and the number of friends that are former Collins employees, much like I suspect the used Drake market is around Dayton, Ohio.)

Re: BitX/uBit Raduino Replacements

Michael Hagen
 

A few weeks ago I got requests for Raduino replacements.

I sold the available built and tested units I had for BitX and uBit.

I ordered new PCBs, so now I have RaduinoX for BitX and RaduinoUmax for uBit.

These are the "better" replacements, and have lots of nice features, but remain exact replacements.

I also have about 20 new PCBs of each, for anyone who wants a Bare Board.

Contact me direct for Info :

Re: Kit-Projects Bitx40 AGC

 

Herman,

Sorry to hear you are unhappy with the AGC. Please contact me via: info at kit-projects dot com :  so we can help trouble shoot the agc if you are having issues.

The "new one" is going to be for the Bitx40 not the ubitx. We still have some tweaking to do on the Bitx40 version but function will be the same.

Herman there are more then one AGC fir uBITX on the market.
Now with this one I know now 4 different.

For mine is the connection on the hot side of the audio poti. Where the signal is supplied from first stage passing a 1kΩ resistor. The AGC pulls down the hot end of the poti.
Others i do not know.

Hello David,

 

 

Maybe I made a mistake when I ordered the AGC print and mounted it in my UBITx V5.0. I am not satisfied with ho wit works/ or not works…If I look tot his

printed circuit I see much differences with my build in cuircit.

 

So  my question: Do I have the wrong one build in my Ubitx V5.??  Can I replace it fort he new one…?

Hello all,

 We just put the Bitx40 AGC out to fab for proto type and look forward to having this ready in the coming weeks it will install just like our uBitx agc pre-built with install instructions.

Update:

 Digital interfaces and outboard relay kits are almost gone! Relay boards will be discontinued once they are gone and we are not sure when or if the digital interface's will be re-run

Re: encoder mod/ seperate switch

Jim Sheldon
 

You don't have to modify the encoder.  Just add an SPST Normally Open pushbutton switch and connect the two wires from the second switch to the wires that go to the two separate pins on the encoder.  The 3 pins on the other side of the encoder are for the frequency encoding function and the two pins by themselves are the switch.  No mods needed to the encoder at all.

has anyone modified the encoder  so as to insert a separate switch to overide the need to push the encoder to select menus etc    many thanks   dave c

Re: encoder mod/ seperate switch

Jack, W8TEE
 

We've added NO push button switches to use as a selection object instead of the built-in switch. You still need to track which menu option level/option was selected (e.g., a State machine), but it's not that hard to do.

Re: tx rx led hook up

Thanks Ed and Curt, these are exactly what I needed. I don’t know what visual block did this but I was searching all over ubitx.net for instructions on the LED hookup and Curt’s comment made me realize I was on the wrong domain!

my Microphone and remaining antenna parts arrive tomorrow, it will be a fun day!

Wow, not sure why the relay boards were slow to sell, either v3 and v4 folk could care less about spurs, or lots have done axicom surgery. Don't take by advice on kit marketing potential.

Thanks David for preparing my digital interface order within minutes of placement. No hurry in getting it out of your store.

My ubitx is clean through 17m now, so why not some digital mode action. Thanks again for supplying the community here. I hope our merchants on other continents are also appreciated.

Re: Audio input to transmitter - level? #ubitx

hello,

You can monitor your AF intput with this device . You can tap directly at the input from the mike plug though a 600/600 transformer and in serie with a 10nf capacitor.

Re: Audio input to transmitter - level? #ubitx

Is it as simple as adding the(appropriate) resister in series with the meter + side and ground the meter - side?

And where would I tap the a V4 board for the resister going to the + meter?

I used a round file and once the paint is gone inside the led hole it’s a tight fit, but no chance of it falling out.

I see the info at ubitx.com run by Sunil. See the category 2 construction ubitx case. Click on the picture. It takes you to page with more pictures, one shows where 3 wires are soldered to bottom of board.

I had to open the mounting hole just a little with a reamer, but I left it with a tight fit.
