Bitx 3B PCB second batch

The second batch of Bitx 3b PCB now has the following changes from the first batch of pcb's made.

  1.  Q16 is not on the main exciter PCB now, instead we have a additional PCB of audio mute
      delay circuit. Please observe connections for integrating the connections from the schematics.

  2. Two components have been added in the mic pre amp. 100UH and .001 at the mic pre amp circuit.
     for better filteration of audio coming from the microphone.

  3. Two pin connector's  point has been added at 
      a.  VFO for DDS optional use.
      b.  Audio to agc circuit
      c.  LM386 Audio Mute point taken to the Audio Mute PCB

Some Important Points:

1. We recommend the VFO coil to be wound with 2 nos of T37-6 stacked with about 40 turns plus or minus a few turns, for more stable VFO.  The coil has to be glued with quick fix for better stability.
The second recommended VFO coil is on T50-2.   Single coil. Both work as very stable VFO's

For Drift:

The VFO has two trimmers. The first …
