Re: Bitx40

I have decided to sell y BITX40. It is all assembled in an aluminum case (10"x10"x3.5") with lots of space to add new add-on projects you may decide to do related to the radio. The pictures follow. I am asking US$75 + shipping for the whole thing (power module included). If you are interested please let me know. (ve9pct@...)

Hello! I was surprised these days to see that Bitx40 is no longer available for sale. I was almost crying... I had a very good experience with uBitx in past and Bitx40 supose to be my new project for New Year. I do admit that uBitx is overwhelming me. I like Bitx40 much more because of the simplicity of the board. My level of understanding electronics is minimal but somehow I feel like Bitx40 is something I can fully understand if I try hard enough. Is there ANY chances to find one in this community? I do appreciate all the answers, guys! YO8UFO.

Yep, it was hard to see that go! But there is more on the horizon from another vendor. Details on my site:

Re: ubitx BFO Calibration issue

hardrain
 

Well, it did work :)
I've made a factory reset and starting from a 'clean' setting I've been able to make a decent BFO cal and the Volmet lady's voice came out pleasant and understandable. So were a few hams I could tune on 80 and 40m.
Thanks for the suggestions.

Raffaello, sorry about the name mix-up before.

The only way I could get my bfo settings to stick was to do the calibration and bfo settings one after the other at the same time. Then when complete turn radio off and back on.
I tuned into a local QSO and set both calibration and bfo so QSO sounded normal. Easy and worked for me, hope this helps.

I'm trying to calibrate the bfo on my v5.1 with stock firmware. When I find a setting I like I press the knob and the display reads "carrier set". But  the setting was not actually saved, if I re-enter the BFO setting menu I find the original value (and I can hear that the BFO frequency is the old one).

I'm no expert on international shipping, but would be curious if the rate is just as high to neighboring countries. If not, if maybe it has something to do with specific shipping to Ireland, possibly a friend/acquaintance in a "lower shipping cost" country could help you out.

My guess is, its expensive to all of Europe, but should be easy to confirm.

That’s impressive 

I can’t ship a circuitboard like that across the street here in Toronto for anyone near that price.   

There is also a difference depending on your business model and if you want to make a few dollars or you are giving back to the amateur community and money is not important.

I can ship a package of <=500g (1lb) which I would imagine is a good bit more than this item, for as little as €9, and €17 for fully tracked, priority, fully insured signed-for delivery. The cost for 250g is about €3 cheaper.

Re: ubitx BFO Calibration issue

Hardrain, sounds like you probably need to do a factory reset.
Turn the radio off
Then while pressing in and holding the tuning knob turn the power back on.
Follow the on screen instructions.
Sometimes if you get the calibration and bfo to far off its best to just start again.
Good luck

Yes, I've now realized that the software reverts back to default value each time BFO cal is reentered, and this makes hard (and a bit frustrating) to proceed by trials and errors since each  time you loose the improvements you have just made. You can't fine tune, unless you take note on paper.
I did so, and after spending a couple of hours hearing noise, whistles and distorted signals in my headphones, I have obtained a setting that allows me to listen to HAM SSB comms, barely readable, quite metallic and ringing but understandable.
Then, I got an idea. I tuned in Shannon Volmet, thinking, now I'll have a stable and continuous signal to adjust my BFO.
No joy. After one hour I could not make it understandable. The signal itself is very strong and clean, but the voice remains totally 'scrambled' and distorted, over the whole BFO adjusting range.
Maybe my ubitx has some other problem, not BFO related. Tomorrow I'll check. Now my eyes are closing ;)

PS
I've considered consider the risk of switching to tx, but if I use a dummy load (I've built one) I can't receive the SSB signal I got to use for calibration.

Hi Raffaello,

 

I had a similar experience.

 

I think the “set BFO” software starts with the default value. So every time you repeat the BFO calibration, the SW starts with the default. It seems like the previous calibration didn’t “take”.

 

As for clicking the knob vs. the transmit button, the tuner knob seems to work for me.

 

So, try the BFO calibrate procedure and use the tuner knob then listen to a SSB signal. If the SSB signal is still good then all is OK. If this doesn’t work then try the transmit button.

 

Good luck! Love my uBITx – I’ve learned a lot about radio from it!

Thank-You, Armin !!!
You were totally right. I changed the second "master" folder to "ubitx_v5.1_code" and opened the same file in that dir. NO ERRORS. There was also another folder inside the second master called "ubitx_v5.1_code" but it only had one file in it called "ubitx_v5.1_code".  I believe this was the one I was using and that's why the errors.

Thanks again.
