The Misunderstood Reason Why the FCC Exists

Radio frequency space is scarce and many people, organizations and businesses want more of it. Who stands in the void preventing us all from creating interference? The FCC, at least that is the hope.

VERY interesting talk on the "Turbulent 1920’s" in broadcast radio: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CHADSvgsO1k

sBitx Raspbery Pi Ham Radio Deep Dive

Now that I have the sBitx working. Lets walk through all its features, get it on the air and make some contact! Ashhar Farhan at HFSignals.com has released a really cool HF radio that includes a raspberry pi. This is a DEVELOPER radio so we expect some bumps on the road for early adopters. However, having a large 7" screen and raspberry pi on board will make this a fine radio to use in the shack.

FIXING The sBitx Developer Edition!

Ashhar Farhan at HFSignals.com has released a really cool HF radio that includes a raspberry pi. This is a DEVELOPER radio so we expect some bumps on the road for early adopters. In this case, there was an issue with the voltage regulator and finals provided in the kit. Ashhar has sent early adopters replacement parts and I will be in installing those today!
