Let’s unpack and then test a remarkably inexpensive kit for a sine/triangle/square-wave 1Hz to 1MHz kit. Dirt cheap and works. This video covers only unboxing and then testing. For construction, see Randy K7AGE’s video at https://youtu.be/EFRVeoh20Bc.
CAIG Products, which makes DeoxIT, asked me if I’d like to try some. Soon it was at my door (to be clear, “mailed” is used in the generic sense–it did NOT come via USPS). The demo makes an old LED flashlight work reliably again.
Okay, so this is an experiment. It’s April 1st, hence time for a Fake Amateur Radio News video. Also, I wanted to pass on some info about my channel, so I added “infomercials.” It seemed more fun than a “state of the channel video.” Tell me what you think.
Sorry about all the posts showing up suddenly (including this one)!
I was way, way behind on posting my YouTube videos to my website, so I hired Kael, a teenager, to help me bring it up to date. He’s a great kid, a senior in high school, and very talented with computer stuff. My website now matches what’s on YouTube, which is important since a significant part of my YouTube audience finds the videos via my website.
Thanks for your patience. The blitz is over. My apologies for having to delete so many extraneous posts.
I enjoy your subscribership and hope that I can continue to provide content that you find interesting and useful.
The BITX-40 Raduino-based VFO has a horrible habit of galloping up or down the band at the most inconvenient times. This simple mod fixes the problem. The schematic showing the original circuit and the modified circuit is shown below the video.

I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or more commonly known as the Mormon Church. There's lots of misinformation out there about the Church. Why read erroneous material when you can easily see what we really believe? Check out mormon.org for an introduction to the doctrines and a chance to see member profiles, or if you want in-depth information, including the various books of scripture, lesson manuals, and policy manuals, go to lds.org.
