A friend of mine, Simon, VK6MSC has set up a Kiwi SDR radio that is running 24/7. Apart from his qth having a very high noise floor, the radio itself seems to work quite well and is a good tool if you want to check propagation to VK6, which is a land far far away.
So i got busy today and wired up the uBitx. Turned it on and tuned around a little to find some signals, well there was not much going on anywhere but I did manage to find this one ZL on an other wise dead band. Its good to know that the receiver works, now i just have to wire up a mic and check its working on transmit. But that is going to be another day.
So I recorded a little video from tonight’s 7.130 dx net. I have been giving the receiver a good workout to see how I like it. So far, to be honest, I think i prefer the Bitx40 over the uBitx. Though, it might be I just need to play with the IF and BFO settings to move the bandpass around a little to where I think it sounds better.
