About 8 months ago, shortly after the BitX40 SMD kits were released, Farhan posted schematics and details of a multi-band double conversion HF transceiver designed around the same principals of simplicity and ease of construction that made the original BitX20 so popular among home brewers and experimenters. It was called the uBitX and it is now available as a single board ‘kit’ with SMD parts pre-soldered and torroids pre-wound. A test run will be available until Christmas at $109 US.
The uBitX is good for 80-10m SSB/CW, and will put out 10W on the lower bands. Not the best rig in the world, but something fun to build, very hackable, and nothing to cry over if it gets wrecked on an expedition.
