A year back or so I order my uBITX QRP radio and finally had the time to build it all. I had a very hard time as a new amateur radio operator / new to building radio finding resources to help guide me in the build. I made this quick video in hopes others will find it helpful in getting this radio built and on the airwaves. I can confirm that it works as I have gotten several QRP contacts SSB with my invert v antenna!
Here are a few resources that I found helpful during my build:

I have only used this radio a handful of times so it was more a project-based kit that was really fun to build. However, I was able to get a QRP QSO from San Diego to Idaho all on 5 watts! I am sure I will revisit this radio in the future.
