Important  Information provides help for constructors:  Preventing catastrophes and providing guides, fixes and modifications for your µBITx.

CAUTION : If you power up the µBITX without the pull-up resistor the µBITX can randomly go into CW transmit. Have you installed the 4.7k pullup to 5v on the CW key pin?

v3 Board?  – There are known issues with WX brand TDA2822 chips (U1): Read this.  Earlier UCI and socketed TDA2822 are not affected.

v4 Board? – If your audio is distorted see this article.  It is too early to determine yet whether this problem is widespread or is limited to just a few kits.  Note that audio output is reduced over the v3 board.  If you use a low impedance speaker you may need an additional amplifier module (LM386, TDA2822, etc.) to get adequate volume.   The pop mod is not required.

Do not overdrive your rig on SSB or digital modes above 18MHz.  This may cause spurs exceeding US emission requirements.  Read this post for details.
