uBITX -A compact HF transceiver edit / delete

Applying the BITX philosophy (good performance out of absurdly cheap parts) to a multiband SSB radio. The trick here is using an Si oscillator chip that can provide three separate outputs -- so you can do things like switching sidebands by tweaking one oscillator either side of the final filter frequency. Very neat!

Some useful notes on the Baofeng/Wouxun cheapie handhelds, but the rest of this is also quite interesting, particularly the repairs to test equipment. (I need to keep an eye out for one of those HP spectrum analysers...)

Since PSK31 is both phase- and amplitude-modulated, you can completely ignore the phase modulation and just envelope-detect it!
