jt65 with bitx 40 module

I had a few projects planned over the weekend, but I didn’t get any of them done. Instead, I rigged up my star wars bitx 40 to the computer to try my hand at jt65.

I soldered a headphone jack to two dupont cables and plugged them straight into the mic input on the board. I just triggered the ptt manually.

It worked okay, I ended up with two contacts using 5 watts. The longest one was about 700 miles away. It was a good start, but I’ll probably rebuild the bitx and add a permanent headphone jack and some sort of ptt interface. I am enjoying these digital modes and it is quite a pain to rig up the radio every time.

    Can you show pictures and schematics of your cable? Have you made any updates?
