uBITX V6.0 For Sale - and others too
Hi again Curt,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
All of those have their delightful beauty marks and their own warts. I am thinking about that V6 as well. I am happy enough with the two line LCD in my V3 and I bought more of those to play with my experiments. I have no plans to seriously modify the V3 beyond the CEC software it is running and the taming of the sidetone and T-R thump.
I will only mention in passing there is already QRO gear here but most of it weighs more than 10 pounds. There is nothing much over ~100 watts.
Ashar has joined the thread too. Ham radio is a hobby for me. Whatever money I have has better places to be spent than on 5k and 10k radios that will only do the same things 50, 100, 200 dollar radios and radios home built from absolute found junk. We don't add an S unit by merely adding a couple of watts. we have to double the power and nearly double it again for one s unit. There isn't a lot of point to making and using radios much over 100 watts. Unless the FCC changes the rules for us to have megawatts.
The most reasonable first one to repair is the uBitX followed by the PFR-3. Meanwhile still working through that other guy's QCX. And a V6 is on the way here to see if I can help.
73 and hope to see a few of you on the air this weekend.
