Wow!  Fully built and tested surface mount boars!
Nice find.

No mention of current draw in Rx, but just looking at the board and circuitry it can't be bad.

I'd be ordering one right now, but I'm literally 3 projects behind right now ::) and promised myself I wouldn't buy another kit until I got at least 2 of these done :-\

Hi Bob,

I found this from Ashhar Farhan himself regarding power consumption:

"Rx draws 150 ma on zero volume. It can go up to 200 ma on peaks.the tx draws south of 700ma without modulation, peaks to 2.5A on modulation."

cockpitbob:
Joel, thanks!  Those are very reasonable power numbers.  This rig is looking more attractive every time I look at it.

I received my new uBITX yesterday morning about 10AM, made my first contact by 1PM. A really nice sounding rig and putting out 10 watts on 40 meters. I'm trying to decide which case to use next.
