Re: Tonites 40m Net(s)


GA Sam,

FB on the 6V6 rig, will listen for you around 7120 or so. In the mid seventies
I built a homebrew version of the TO keyer. I let is get away from me and wish
I hadn't, for nostalgia reasons. It being the first commercial keyer, and my
second hombrew project. I have an HA-1 in the basement now and will get around
to restoring it someday.

Thanks for triggering some nice memories of my early amateur adventures.
Back to the bench, Winter's too valuable to waste.
I love this radio stuff !

| Hello,
| I was trying out a new transmitter tonight ( 7 QSOs so far ), a 6V6 crystal
| oscillator running 4 Watts output. Pardon the keying for the next few weeks as
| I re-learn how to use a Hallicrafters HA-1/TO keyer. It has relay keying so I
| can use it to key the cathode keyed tube rigs here at N5AF.
| My 7122 crystal is slightly low in frequency, so keep me in mind when QNI
| time.

| I rather suspect that Terry will have a much better response in the morning
| than I will this evening. That's just the way it is at this time of year,
| it will get better as spring approaches. I wish I could join y'all on the
| Thursday morning nets but my boss insists that I be at work and that that I
| be about my duties! Whatta guy...
| Have fun tomorrow AM. I'll see what happens on the early net as it may not
| be worth running the late net, keep an eye on QRPSpots and the e-mail, I'll
| post my intentions after the early net. It would seem that the later it
| gets the longer the band goes, oh well... I see from the news that there
| was a large flare, I also wonder how this will affect performance of the
| band.
| God Bless all and stay safe/warm/operating.
