Re: 40m Net

About 4s SSB. . ..

I think it would be very possible to convert one of the BJ into a DOUBLE Side band rig.. . .
Many years ago, there was a MOD to the HW-8. IT was a very simple mod that would
convert the HW-8 to a DSB rig. I believe this BJ would be a very simple conversion too.

Hi Mike,
 
There was some interest in a 4S SSB Net at one time
but I'm not sure
what happened to it.
Maybe someone that owns a microphone will start it up
again.

My neurosurgeon told me that I have a cognitive brain
disorder
(Army) that make keying unlikely.  I can copy but need to
do SSB to make
things fun. Are there possibilities for 20 or 40 from
central Oklahoma?

Hi Dennis,
 
I actually pride myself in how slow my mind works
sometimes - so
no problem there.
If I hear you call at 3 wpm I will respond at 3
wpm. (give me
a few seconds to plug in my straight key).
It really helps if you are on frequency. There are
ways to adjust
Rockmite and Pixie type circuits to easily accomplish
that.
All of us - even the highest speed whiz bang
operators - started at
zero wpm.
The only way to do it is to just do it.
Don't worry about mistakes. I can guarantee
that I make more mistakes
during a net than all the other operators
combined.
Practice on sending your call, name, state, and
RST. That will be
enough for a Net check-in. If you make a mistake in
sending your name, for
example, just send a bunch of dits and try again. Repeat
this as necessary.
I'm not in a hurry.
Give it a try next week.

i listened in for the
entire net. It sure sounded like it
as much a buzz... however, being a “newbie” to CW
and Morse, I can only
pick out a letter or two on occasion. There seems to
be a renewal of
interest in QRP and CW. Have you given thought to
providing a net for
those of us that can use a Rockmite or Pixie and our
watts and WPM are
interchangeable? I think this would be a good thing as
an encouragement to
new CW enthusiasts. 

Let me know if and when you a “Slow Code
for Slow Minds” net and I will be the first to join
in. 

Thanks, 
72 and God bless.
