    Ubitx is now for sale, I know a few here including me built the bitx40 (40m qrp rig),, now you can buy the ubitx multi band 3-30mhz hf qrp kit for only $109 till xmas, way more functions than the original bitx40!! and just like the bitx40 the main board comes completely assembled so its a pretty easy kit to put together

    I know about a 10 people in my local radio club who have placed orders for one.
    I just got the Bitx40 & need to put that one together yet.
    Don't think I will jump on this one.

    Peer pressure is always more expensive than beer pressure.
    I'm waiting until after the holidays to order.

    Took a day to sell off the first batch they have made up.
    The price goes up to 129 US after Christmas.

    I guess it depends on how high they raise their prices by time I'm ready.

    Yes. I was thinking of it as a tinkering rig. You know replace the IRF-510 with 520 / 530 and play around some.

    I've tried both the IRF-520 and 530 in my BitX40 when the 510 bit the dust. Neither performed anywhere near as well as the 510. The 520 was better than the 530. Hint: Look at the input capacitance.
