uBITX - Back away

3/26/2019
Time for a break. I drank the uBITX koolaide and have been fighting with that thing for almost a month now. The instructions and available data on the project is a total mess. There is no instruction manual or step by step how-to just a conglomeration of comments by experiments. Assembly is easy but calibration is nothing short of luck. There appears to be as many outcomes as experimenters. The low quality of parts may affect the tolerance values resulting in a quite unpredictable result. Add to that the simplicity of design with dual circuit functions and the possibility for errors compounds. So unless someone derives a solution I will be looking for a new sucker at a hamfest this summer. Fine example of 'If it sounds too good to be true it isn't'. uBITX makes my KX3 look like a bargain if  time has any value.
