Re: About the new Crickett transceiver
Prof. Arnaldo Coro Antich
Dear amigo Curt:
Thanks for your very interesting reply to my request. We have achieved nice results on 40 meters using MOSFET devices recycled from computer UPS power supplies that use them as a square wave power oscillator. The CFL NPN transistors are only good up to 80 meters... as demonstrated by many tests, but they simply do not amplify on 40 meters.
Where I can see the circuit diagaram of the Crickett transceiver ?
Here in Cuba we have now 10,000 radio amateurs with maybe 90 percent of them operating on the 2 meters FM segment between 144.2 and 145.800 and using more than 40 repeaters located all over the country. Many of them want to go on the air on the HF bands, especially on 40 meters that provides very nice daytime coverage all over the NVIS coverage area and make possible to work DX during the evenings. The antenna that is most popular here is the 40 meters inverted V dipole, and some hams are using now delta loops...
73 and DX
