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.




1.About V1.200
Supports uBITX v5. The source code is the same for both V2, V3, V4, and V5.

You only need to enter the uBITX version in the ubitx.h file and it will be compiled for your version of uBITX.

#define UBITX_BOARD_VERSION 2 or 5
2 include v2, v3, v4

For versions 2, 3, and 4


For versions 2, 3, and 4


Use of other source code is the same as before.

3.Test for Version 1.20 with uBITX V5

The receiving performance of uBITX is specified as 2uV, but the minimum output of my instrument is 7uV. I have confirmed that it is clearly received when tested at 7uV.

Below you can see the test video using uBITX V5.

-90dBm (7uV)


It is normal to receive a 1 kHz sound at 14.049 MHz with LSB


It is normal to receive a 1 kHz sound at 14.049 MHz with USB

    1. I haven't seen you for a while.
      Thanks for important information.
      After a long time, I forgot to enter two versions of the firmware.
      I modified it now and uploaded it again.

      Of course. Maybe a month later I will be quite busy because of my main job (start new project)
      My plan is to modify Wsjtx Portable before that.

  4. Just updated my first version ubitx and everything went ok. Added a 3.5 nextion display as well.

    Question: I am not seeing any bargraph S/PO meter movement on receive. Just shows a red bar graph about half way to the S5 mark. No movement.

  5. Ian I installed v5 1.2 sw and I use a 2.8" nextion display, I have the same problen on the bar graph but more important to listen well the voice the IF shift must have on 1420 value.
    What I did wrongly? Regards Roberto IK4JSF

  6. Happy, Ian, to use V1.22 . After installing the 1.22 on my ubitx v5 , I am unable to factory reset. I wonder whether any update is available ?

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.
