  1. Hi Ian.
    I have build EU1KV VNA few months back and running DH1AKF firmware. For my club people, I have modified the original PCB for Lipo Voltage, Header for Bluetooth and put a LM386 on the other side of the board to amplify signal from the Board Audible VNA Function. Seeing you tappign signal from Pin 6 of Si5353, I added a 2 Pin Header for that too.
    I am eagerly awaiting your Firmware release and ready to do dogfooding with Beta builds. Could you please share the Firmware. I fully understand the risks and fine if the firmware bricks the STM Board, which I can recover with STMLink
    Thanks ,

  2. Hi Ian...
    If you upgrade the STLink Firmware on the board to the MBed OS, you can use onboard storage to update program firmware. The MBed OS exposes a small flash drive when you plug into USB on your computer. Copy your .bin file on there and the board will automatically flash & reboot. Very easy.

Release CEC Firmware v1.200 for uBITX All version(include V2, V3, V4, V5)

Release CEC Firmware v1.200 for uBITX All Version (include v2, v3, v4, v5) I did the firmware work for v5 when uBITX V5 was released, but I release it now. I received the feedback from a thankful beta tester and tested it myself by converting my uBITX v3 to v5 but I was not sure. I ordered the uBITX V5 and delivered the correct uBITX V5, so I made a little more fine-tuning. If you use V2, V3, V4, you do not need to update this firmware.
