Hi I am Preston Roberts, I run a YouTube channel focusing on Technology. I would love to showcase the Sbitx on my channel but I don't know who I need to talk to about getting a demo unit in here to Review. 

Thanks again

Hi ETAPRIME!!!

I absolutely love your channel!! I hope Ashhar decides to send him a unit. I'd love to see what he says about it. And he's got a lot of subscribers. It's cool he's wanting to review this.

My question of you after looking at your web site. Are you a licensed radio amateur?

 Hi n7qmm25,

No, I'm afraid I'm not a licensed HAM operator but I wouldn't mind becoming one! Getting my license seems to be fairly easy.

I love the Raspberry Pi and all Single Board Computers, and the genius of how these two areas are added together (Ham radio and Raspberry Pi) is just plain fascinating to me.  

Anyway I hope that answers your question. 

Thanks,

Preston,

We are awaiting the new batch pcbs that are stuck at the customs for the last 10 days.
Once our production starts, someone from our side will get in touch with you.
Thanks for considering us, the really exciting bits about the sbitx are yet to be written. This is just the radio platform that hams will build on.

Preston,
How are you going to present a radio that is intended for digital communication without a license?  To use the capabilities of the sBitx, you need at least a General license, as it is mainly for HF.  The 10-meter use is limited.  I suggest you get the license and then ask HFSignals for a demo unit to review.  Otherwise, it feels like you are fishing for a free handout.

Farhan,
I would bet other deserving Hams can put the radio to full use.  You already have a backlog of orders, so you do not need publicity to promote the sBitx.  This might be an option after the sBitx is in full production mode and there is no backlog of people waiting to order.

I'd be more to the point.

Its a Developers radio not an off the shelf complete radio at this time.
I'd expect in the future that will change.   But we need to get past
teething pains of the first run.  So at this time its not reviewable
if finished radio expectations are applied.

Another name for the current units in the field are BETA test and
development (hopefully more software) so reporting on it would
have to have that expectation as well.   As it develops and fixed
are incorporated into the hardware the software will also advance.

If anyone has a new dev unit for sbitx they are not pounding on and using daily . I would like to take it iff your hands… you can keep your pi4 and the screen if you need it but I would like to. Get my hands on a unit to help pound out all the bugs and to work on software development and testing to get more functionality out of it

Richard,

There are very few of us that can "pound" of it due the TX issues
without modding it.  The stock box is very likely to blow finals or
do other bad things like oscillate and kill in the input switch.

Read:
https://groups.io/g/BITX20/message/98355
Since your missing that bit of info. 

You likely also missed at least one for sale offer as well by a software only guy.

Lou,

I think Naveen meant FCC, not FBI.  The comment is because Preston Roberts does not have an amateur radio operator license.  Any transmission from his QTH would violate Part 97, hence the raid.  (a Google lookup for ETA Prime shows the location in North Carolina so that the FCC would be the enforcement branch of government).

As I had stated before, there is a shortage of the radio, so until the backorder is filled, it would be better to sell the units to licensed Hams.  At some point, the backlog will disappear, and advertising is needed to boost sales.  I already have one, so there is no impact on me.

The above is my opinion.  Others can be different, and that is OK.

HRO for example will NOT sell to any one UNLESS they have a license. IT is illegal for NON amateurs to operate a radio unless being controlled by licensed amateur. Flame away.
