Using HDSDR with HF Transceiver 
(Examples of using RTL-SDR in uBITX #2)
Modified - Add Videos

CAT Support uBITX Firmware CEC Version supports SDR connections from Version 1.07.
http://www.hamskey.com/2018/04/how-to-connect-sdr-rtl-sdr-to-ubitx-and.html


uBITX CEC Firmware is working to release beta 1.073 soon.
1.Supports 16x02 LCD, I2C 16x02 LCD, 20x04 LCD and I2C 20x04 LCD.

2.Extended Button support. 
With only 4 resistors and 4 buttons, you can directly control the frequently used 'Select Mode', 'Band up', 'Band down' and 'Select Tune Step'.

3.I decided to support Signal Meter. 
To support all forms of S.Meter, curve values (Level value)can be entered directly from uBITX Manager.  



The video below is the video I shot at the time of this writing.

Tested video that was run after all the settings for uBITX and HDSDR are complete


1.Install
  http://www.hdsdr.de/
  HDSDR is a representative SDR software supporting IF-output.

  Download & Install


Download ExtIO-RTL2832.dll and copy to HDSDR Installed folder
(if you use RTL-SDR)
If you search for 'ExtIO_RTL2832.dll' on Google, you can find a site that can be downloaded.


2.Configuration HDSDR
Execute HDSDR

Set Transceiver (Omni-Rig)
To download and install the Omni-rig, see the link below.

Click the 'CAT to Radio (Omni-Rig) -> Omni-Rig Setup'

If you have already set up Omni-Rig, it will run automatically.


Option -> RF Front-End Configuration

Select SDR on IF output, which is controlled 'by Omni-Rig1'

Enter IF-Frequency, Enter the SDR Offset Frequency you entered in uBITX Manager.
Below is an example of the settings of my uBITX Manager.


Click the 'Apply'

3.QSO with HDSDR
  Turn SDR Mode
  (Depending on your radio, you can skip this part. This example is an example from uBITX. )
The example below is an example of a 20x04 LCD. In the case of 16x02 LCD, it appears slightly different.

  1. What is 14.017 ? I wondered from before.

    1. other The VFO frequency.
      uBITX shows the frequency of VfoB up to Khz when VfoA is main.
      If vfoB, it shows the frequency of vfoA.
      If you check the Scroll option in uBITX Manager, it scrolls the whole frequency periodically to the left.

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.
