Got Mine Built #ubitx

Terence Taylor

Got around to assembling my uBitx today. The case was laser cut on my Glowforge out of 1/8" MDF.

I based the design on what Martin Held, AE7EU did. The case with my radio has larger holes for the
thick panel jacks (they are just BARELY long enough) and the 1/4" shaft volume control.

The other case is based Martin's original design.

I will upload the files (.svg format) a little later. I want to try doing an engrave around the jacks that SHOULD create a recess
for the retaining net.

Put the radio on the air and my first contact was from my QTH in California to Colorado (5 and 6, both ways)!


Nice looking case.
Please spell check "transceiver".Just a small correction.:)

OK, here is the file to use for laser/cnc cutting of the case I made. I cut in out of 1/8" (3mm) MDF. Since that is a little too thick for the suppliedĀ  jacks, you may need to glue the jacks into the from panel or use a Forstner bit to create a recess for the retaining nuts.
