ND6T AGC and Click kit wiring notes


Don, ND6T
 

A quick answer: The AGC board is fed by a potentiometer (placed across the receive RF input). The release time may be set by a Variable Resistor placed from J1 to the ground return. Details may be obtained by visiting nd6t.com . Have fun! 73, Don

A total of 864 AGC and/or Click mini-kits have been shipped so far. This is way more than i expected but that's OK .....popular circuits Don, ND6T, came up with.  Presently, I have about 20 AGC boards left from the last EasyEDA board order and about 100 Click boards left. It's been fun but it's time for me to do something else (like the SWR/Power meter as described earlier).

The new Ver 4 uBITX boards have the Click problem fixed. Therefore, after the last available AGC mini-kits have been sold/shipped, I'm going to quit and pass the torch to someone else. Order rates have dropped off some, so maybe everyone who wanted a mini-kit has one ??

The AGC board and Click board Gerbers have been uploaded to the files section under my call.

"On order" and "shipped" information is available in the "Files" section under my call.

I'd love to see a SWR/Power meter for the Bitx/uBitx. Go for it.

I have order 3 new version 4 board kits. Will your AGC work on the ver 4?  How do I order if so.  I would like to see SWR/PWR meter, if possible to see on 7 inch LCD.

Yes, the AGC mini-kit works with the Ver-4 uBITX board.

Ordering info and a lot more is in the "Files" section of this reflector under my call.

Well done Kees and thanks. I agree the moment has come to call "Time". Having the gerbers available will enable others to have boards produced if required, including future group buys.

Hi, I have been trying to get some software to produce the layout from a Gerber file, but I keep getting companies who will make a PCB from a .Gbr file. Is that the way to go? I use DesignSpark by RS for board design but there is no provision to import .Gbr. There is provision to export. Thanks

HI Kees K5BCQ,  Don, ND6T
Would it be OK for me to use this design to produce and supply blank boards to the ubitx community? I will do these at cost price...

Cheers.

Kees T
 

Sure, Nick. Have at it and good luck to you. Both have been quite popular boards.

I have 5 of the (VA3NOI)   ND6T AGC boards .  These are Through the Hole boards.

These are Free ---I  only ask that you e-mail me first as there are only five. Just need a self dressed stamped envelope after that.Stateside please.

Small amount so it's a single board only per request.

E-mail is----(W2HK) @arrl.net 

Also wanted to add how much I have enjoyed the Ubitx and the forum.

Alan,

I was looking through my unbuilt uBITX kit and found two more AGC boards which I was using for "try for fit". So when your check/letter arrives, I can send you 2 AGC mini-kits. The total cost would be $5 which includes postage so I'll refund the rest.

Bob I know these are non components boards  but I suspect they use the 7822 audio amp. THere was a bleat that some  Chino TDAs were failing. If so I know of two sources for NOS  replacements one out of Oz and one in USA. .. ad we are not talking crusty old Dan in Montana. Email  TEF if this is the case.
