Today I got an email from Sunil to confirm my BITX20 minikit had been shipped.
It is good to know that my order has progressed.
I check my order status with Futurlec and my parts order was shipped today. I hope to have it here Monday or Tuesday.
Also today, I was searching out more info about the BITX20 and found a site detailing the build and alignment of one of Sunil’s kits.
I also got in contact with another VK amateur radio operator that is also building Sunil’s kit.
I now know of four VKs that are keen on the BITX20. This should make for an interesting QSO once we all get them working.
I also learnt today that there needs to be some selection of crystals for use in the ladder filter. Ashhar suggests buying ten crystals and selecting five.
I have only ordered 5 crystals so I may have to order some more to achieve optimal performance.
Time will tell.
