Make the power Connect.


Connect the encoder to the cable.


Connect the CW Key Connector (Straight) to the cable. If you use CW Paddle, use a different resistor value.






pull-up by connecting the resistance value to the + line as shown below.








I finally connected most of the small parts.

    2. It's ice to see that is basic soldering ,and it's all with connectors.
      If I mess up I can find them and replace them. And not damage the board.
      My pixie is corroded,I don't want to do the same with an expensive board.

    3. I also made a lot of QRP transceiver including pixie.
      It only has the most basic functions of an HF All-Band radio.

      Now we can find the joy of modifying it. perhap it's uBITX Conecpt...

How to upgrade uBITX Firmware

uBITX is based on Arduino Nano. So uBITX's firmware upgrade method is the same as Arduino.
There are two ways to upgrade the firmware of uBITX.

The first is to compile the source from the Arduino IDE, and the second is to upload the compiled hex file using the Firmware Upgrade Tool.

I'll show you how to upload a compiled hex file as a second method.

1.Connect the uBITX's USB cable to the computer.


2.Run Device Manager on your computer.
  The way to open the Device Manager for each OS Version differs slightly.
  In most Windows, you can easily launch the Device Manager by running.

  On your computer, press the Windows key + R.



 Type devmgmt.msc and press OK Button.




On most operating systems, there will be a serial port named Ports with CH340. If so, the next step is skipped.

If the serial port is not installed as below, you need to install the driver.



Included in uBITX is the Adonano, which uses the CH340 USB To UART part.

Download the latest CH340 driver from the Internet.
