Hi,

Some time ago I ordered a µBITX transceiver at http://www.hfsignals.com/index.php/ubitx/.  Weeks later it arrived and I could start cabling it.  I was impressed by how small this multiband transceiver is.
I started looking for a box but did not find anything on the attic or in the cupboard,  as I wanted some protection I build the transceiver into a cartboard box,  a firm one that is.
Cabling was no problem and done in no time.   Power meter surprised me a bit,  12W on 80,  only some 2W on 10mtr.  Surprise was on the positive side  :)

When you have to wait a longer time for something which you ordered to arrive,  you have a lot of time to read all about the item,  which I did.   I found some fixes for AGC and Audio Pop.

What I also found was other software to use with the µBITX,  software capable of doing more and which also fixed the CW problem with the original software.   Some reading later I upgraded the software to KD8CEC,  still some problems but work in progress so every update was loaded,  faults reported to the writer.
Mainwhile KD8CEC is at 1.04.   See software on https://github.com/phdlee/ubitx

Great transceiver to have,  not super and for sure it could be improved a lot,  but hey,  for that price you can be in the air and have a lot of fun and it has already quite a number of worked countries in the logbook.

Been looking for a good mono band trx able to do CW only with a power of +- 5W.  Any suggestions please ?   Many kits are no longer produced,  out of stock and it takes ages to re-stock it seems.
