BITX40 to BITX40 In Australia -- Both Rigs on the Beach, Video at Both Ends

There is so much great homebrewing going on down-under.   It makes me jealous.  And so much of it is for phone.  FB.

I really like VK3YE's sand graphic proclaiming to the world (or at least to the beach!) that a BITX40 to BITX40 contact had been made. 

Looks like both rigs were using VK3YE's ceramic resonator mod for the VFO.

Be sure to check out the BITX 40 Mods blog:


  1. I suddenly feel that VK hams are having more fun than me. Great job on the gear and the videos guys!

    Well done. A great effort and I am impressed with the audio. Cheers John D VK5BJE/VK5PF

  5. Thanks for the kind comments. It was great fun and I am excited about future prospects with the BitX - such a great rig. I made another vid of the same QSO which also included VK2HPN - this one is a little more comprehensive .
