This is a preview of the up-coming uBITX add-on board. Centered around a high-resolution touch screen TFT display, the uBITX addition adds numerous user-centric features such as: hardware IF AGC, extensive DSP audio functions for receive and send. Lots of CW features like very narrow-band filters, preset messages, and a CPO. Easy initial setup of clocks, user presets for almost everything, stored in EEPROM, 2 VFOs, RIT, on-screen band selection, rotary encoder tuning with separate fine-tuning and frequency increment selection are included. All of this with nice large on-screen push buttons with graphical feedback.
The video is a preview only, showing a portion of the available features. Watch for more detail later.
Availability is estimated at the end of Nov. 2018. It is expected to cost about $50. and is offered as a semi-kit including a 100x100mm double-sided PCB with all SMDs already mounted. Links to the software, which is Arduino IDE compatible, and complete instructions with BOM are part of the package. The user has to supply the remainder of the parts, including micro-processor (Teensy 3.6), 5" or 7" TFT touch display, cables, connectors and a few discrete thru-mount parts.
This kit is for experienced builders with at least intermediate experience (no SMDs need to be soldered).
