Catch the Wave ~~~ The uBitx is Alive!12/23/2017 ~ On the Air QSO with the uBitx!
The uBitx is a real winner --so get off your butt and order one! Listen to the on the air comments and also make the N6QW linear amplifier hack as you will need that during poor band conditions. The fact that you can run a linear amp without hiccups and burps is a testament to the design! Thank you Farhan.
The "Cool Juliano Blue" LCD has to be a factor in how good it sounds! I am also told that the blue display is a major factor in the fight against global warming. OOps forgot there is no global warming or so our leader tells us.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to All.
PS. When you watch the video note that the guy with the FLEX6500 said you sound good and even compared what he spent and what the uBitx costs. The uBitx stands tall with the Big Dogs! Keep in mind my "hack' to add a linear amplifier control. Anymore out here on the left coast when operating on 40 Meters --QRP is some…
Return of the Simpleceiver Plus! 9/12/2017 ~ Arduino Sketch Code for the DCRI have posted the code for the Simpleceiver Plus DCR on my website and you can link to it from here http://www.n6qw.com/Simpleceiver_Plus.html I have also copied the complete blog thread on the Simpleceiver Plus DCR to this page so that there is an easy archive of all of the info that is on this blog. The downside is that it takes a long time to load since it is a huge file. But the plus side in the event we have another ghost in the machine with this blog (like losing the comments) the data will not be lost. This will be the last posting to this thread. The next series will be on the conversion to the SSB transceiver. 73's Pete N6QW My Apologies "The Ghost in the Machine" ate the Comments. I have no idea how that happened or how to get them back.7'3's Pete N6QW 9/08/2017 ~ The Arduino/Si5351/Display Wiring
The above is a pictorial wiring diagram since some homebrewer's are new to schematic dr…
V 2.0 of the Simpleceiver Plus SSB Transceiver11/13/2017 ~ Last Posting on the Simpleceiver Plus SSB XCVR
Thanks for riding along but now it is time to move on --Perhaps Part 15 Low Power Neighborhood FM radio stations using a Arduino and Si5351 in an FM Mode much like VU2ESE. It is a whole new world out there. I can only hope the readers have enjoyed this project as much as I have. firstname.lastname@example.org

An approach for indicating USB/LSB --The Red Square. Works for Me. So far have had a bout 10 contacts and the Rig is doing exceptionally well.
N6QW 11/11/2017 ~ On the Air QSO with KC6FZY.
The Simpleceiver Plus SSB Transceiver is nearly complete and the documentation will ultimately shift to my website http://www.n6qw.com. Most likely there will be no more posts about the project as I have been politely told -- enough Pete! Despite tha…
