CW For Bitx and CW Filter

It gives me great pleasure in introducing my friend Om Tony Fletcher m0pkd from the
United Kingdom. Tony had purchased a Bitx Version 3 kit from my ebay shop and in a very short time had build the receiver of the Bitx.
It is an appreciated effort on the part of Tony as this is his first home brew for a
SSB TCVR as Tony as an cw enthusiast.

Tony has also come up with a simple solution for the Bitx to work on a 400 Khz cw filter,which can be switched for ssb/cw
The circuit is posted here

I am presenting one more circuit sent to me by Tony ,this circuit for the benefit of all wishing to add cw to their Bitx with a very little work.

We thank Tony for his great effort in making the Bitx to work on a filter suitable for cw mode with a very simple technique.

Bitx Manual And ACP Cabinet for Bitx Version 3

Om Leonard is working on the Bitx Version 3 Manual and he has completed some sections, hopefully the complete manual should be complete soon.
The Bitx version 3 PCB is getting a new silk screen so now the component placement will be much clearer from the earlier one. The Linear board is also getting a silk screen according to the components placement as suggested by Leonard modifications.
Hope fully we are moving in the right direction and making the Bitx version 3 more easy to construct by providing the correct info for components.

A new poll has been put up for an ACP cabinet for Bitx, kindly take part in poll and let us know your opinion on it.
Kind regards to all.
