Inviting Suggestions for Bitx Version 3 modifications

Bitx has made history as the most popular kit for radio amateurs.

Amateurs world wide have made the Bitx kit in various ways. The Bitx Version 3 still requires certain mods to made to take it to a higher level in regards to performance.

The following mods would make Bitx version much better.


1. BFO LSB/USB

3. Modification in Mic Pre amp to increase the overall gain

4. Add on for CW

5. Modification in driver stage of the Bitx 3 Linear to push more drive for the IRF 510


I have mentioned a few mods that can made to enhance the performance and the Bitx Version 3.

I would appreciate any feedback in this regard. Kindly email me your suggestions .

Thanks and best of 73s
