Some members of AJARC are starting a BitX 40 build group.
The $59 Bitx 40 board is available at
India Post delivery is about 4 weeks and if you order a case and AGC board from InKits, that is the only shipping option for it.
If you are not interested in making your own case, cases are available at https://amateurradiokits.in
Due to complexities of making a case, our group will not be concentrating on DIY cases and will be more concentrated on assembling the boards into a manufactured case reminiscent of the Heathkit days.
If you are placing an order for a case, I would recommend buying the $8 AGC printed circuit board. I have sourced enough parts to build up 5 of the AGC boards. At this time only 2 parts set remain available for the AGC board. Buying the parts from a US supplier for the AGC board becomes very expensive.
Use the contact form to let me know if you are getting involved in the build and have ordered your Bitx. We anticipate starting right after the Christmas holidays.
As of 11-13-17, I have 3 committed builders and one possible.
N4CAG, N4FV, KM4YIR.
