Looked it up for you. . Very simple for HW-8,

Haven't looked at the Circuitry for the
BJ, but it
is only the process of lifting the
carrier and running it through
a simple circuit.

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


   (Army) that make keying
unlikely.  I can copy but need

 do SSB to make

   things fun. Are there
possibilities for 20 or 40

 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

 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

 sending your name, for

     example, just send a bunch of
dits and try again.

 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

 be a renewal of

       interest in QRP and CW.
Have you given thought

 providing a net for

       those of us that can use a
Rockmite or Pixie and

 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



 72 and God bless.
