A fork of the KD8CEC uBITX code base to create my "uBITX V5D" (D for "Digital"), which contains an additional Teensy 3.2 microcontroller to perform audio DSP.

  • Beta 0.26 and Beta 0.261, Beta 0.262, Beta 0.27 is complete test
  • You can download and use it.


I received uBITX a month ago and found that many features are required, and began coding with the idea of implementing minimal functionality as a general hf transceiver rather than an experimental device.

  • fixed bugs...
  • Diallock for uBITX's sensitive encoders
  • built in softare Memory keyer and cw options control for CW communication
  • Implementation of CAT communication protocol for Digital Communication (as FT8, JT65, etc)
  • Delay Options for external Linear.
  • and more...

Most of the basic functions of the HF transceiver I thought were implemented. The minimum basic specification for uBITX to operate as a radio, I think it is finished. So I will release the 0.27 version and if I do not see the bug anymore, I will try to change the version name to 1.0. Now uBITX is an HF radio and will be able to join you in your happy hams life. Based on this source, you can use it by adding functions.

I am going to do a new project based on this source, linking with WSPR, WSJT-X and so on. Of course, this repository is still running. If you have any bugs or ideas, please feel free to email me.

#uBITX uBITX firmware, written for the Raduino/Arduino control of uBITX transceivers This project is based on https://github.com/afarhan/ubitx and all copyright is inherited. The copyright information of the original is below.


Prepared or finished tasks for the next version

  • Most of them are implemented and included in version 0.27.
  • User Interface on LCD -> Option by user (not need)
  • Include WSPR Beacone function - (implement other new repository) complete experiment need solve : Big code size (over 100%, then remove some functions for experment) need replace Si5351 Library (increase risk and need more beta tester) W3PM sent me his wonderful source - using BITX, GPS


0.27 (First alpha test version, This will be renamed to the major version 1.0)

  • Dual VFO Dial Lock (vfoA Dial lock)
  • Support Ham band on uBITX default Hamband is regeion1 but customize by uBITX Manager Software
  • Advanced ham band options (Tx control) for use in all countries. You can adjust it yourself.
  • Convenience of band movement


  • only Beta tester released & source code share
  • find a bug on none initial eeprom uBITX - Fixed (Check -> initialized & compatible original source code)
  • change the version number 0.26 -> 0.27
  • Prevent overflow bugs
  • bug with linux based Hamlib (raspberry pi), It was perfect for the 0.224 version, but there was a problem for the 0.25 version.
    On Windows, ham deluxe, wsjt-x, jt65-hf, and fldigi were successfully run. Problem with Raspberry pi.



  • Program optimization reduce usage ram rate (string with M() optins)
  • Optimized CAT protocol for wsjt-x, fldigi


  • added delay_background() , replace almost delay() to delay_background for prevent timeout

  • cat library compatible with FT-817 Command switch VFOA / VFOB, Read Write CW Speed Read Write CW Delay Time Read Write CW Pitch (with sidetone) All of these can be controlled by Hamradio deluxe.

  • modified cat libray function for protocol for CAT communication is not broken in CW or TX mode

  • Ability to change CW Delay

  • Added Dial Lock function

  • Add functions CW Start dely (TX -> CW interval)

  • Automatic storage of VFO frequency It was implemented by storing it only once when the frequency stays 10 seconds or more after the change. (protect eeprom life)


  • fixed screen Update Problem
  • Frequency Display Problem - Problems occur below 1Mhz
  • added function Enhanced CAT communication
  • replace ubitx_cat.ino to cat_libs.ino
  • Save mode when switching to VFOA / VFOB


  • fixed the cw side tone configuration.
  • Fix the error that the frequency is over.
  • fixed frequency display (alignment, point)


  • original uBITX software (Ashhar Farhan)
