I sure hope the hams say no to this $7500 tax plus annual lease costs. The day will come when these bureaucrats see the folly of their ways. I just pray lives aren't lost because of it.

Re: GOT IT WORKING including the BFO numbers.Calibration #calibration

OK have update my calculator again to include USB and LSB master calibration numbers.

Now on v5......last change all appears to work..... make sure you keep written record of your changes so you can change back to a know starting point if you type in the wrong numbers.

Re: Audio input to transmitter - level? #ubitx

Hello ,

The capacitor is tap directly on the mike plug and the AF signal (in parallel in fact) The main purpose is to insulate the mike AF circuit from the vu-meter device.
I am using the full device in my other ubitx for the Measurement of the RX level tap from the R70 Resistor and the other channel for AF input measurement

Do you use the whole circuit board? Or just the meter, connected to the transformer and capacitor?  Also, where do you put the capacitor?  Would you use the capacitor to block the DC bias from shorting to ground through the transformer? Or would the capacitor be closest to the meter?

Re: UBitx v5 Not Saving Calibration or BFO adjustments with CEC v 1.20 Nextion

markix88,

If you are using the KD8CEC memory manager, then you need to read the Nano, decode, make changes and then encode before you write the values to the Nano again.

Then be sure to disconnect the USB cable and power cycle the uBITX.  If you leave the USB cable connected it will keep the Nano powered and the changes will not go into effect until all power is removed from the radio and the display is dark.

I would need to understand what you are doing if you are using the stock firmware from HFSignals, as the uBITX goes into transmit mode to calibrate with the stock code.

Did not read the hole topic but v5 board has other settings for calibration than former board versions. So if you follow the calibration steps as mentioned on the hfsignals site it won’t work. Had the same.

Have to dive into my radio tomorrow to see the correct settings.

Hello Evan, sorry for delay, i checked all the informations in your post but still today I can't calibrate my uBITX;
i tried let it off for 1 day but nothing changed; i don't know how i can upload here a video of my cal process, in case i can show to you my process.
I changed Nano but is not the problem; value don't change in the uBITX Memory Manager, i don't know what do with this problem.
Thanks for support!

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.
