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

   My neurosurgeon told me that I have a cognitive brain
   (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
     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
     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

 72 and God bless.
