Audio Mute Circuit For Bitx

Bitx had a problem of  noise being generated on pressing the PTT button. The usual way of muting the PIN 3 of LM386 did work  to solve the problem much, although to some extend, while working with Bitx3b i had discussion regarding this problem with Om Blake Bartosh from USA who was also building the Bitx Version3b  and who has also put in a great effort in bringing out the new Bitx3b construction manual.

The idea was to make a project to mute the audio of LM386 completely.
Presented below is a schematic of the audio mute circuit designed and tested by OM Blake Bartosh.

I myself build it and its working perfectly with my bitx3b. This circuit can be used for any tcvr.
The complete assembled kit will be available very soon.
