Re: Pig Rig

This little pig went to Ozarcon,
This little pig stayed home;
This little pig ate roast beef,
This little pig had none.
And THIS little pig went whee, whee, all the way home, was fed a proper diet of juice (the 12VDC kind), and her voice was heard throughout the land ...

Suckling pig #178 exited the mailbox in Gnadenhutten OH on Friday March 08 2013 and the apapropriate slap on the backside (with a soldering pencil, of course!) will commence in the very near future.

I would appreciate a label if possible; March 2013 would be fine.

Thanks also for all the crystal socket ideas. A 14-pin machined pin IC socket could be cut in half at the center pins, yielding four 3-pin sockets ... just right for one rig if the center pin of the 3-pin socket is used for ground as per some of the ideas and pics at and ...

Now back to tending the suckling pig ...

Hee, they are a lot of fun. Being rock bound brings back memories of my novice
days. Man, that was loong time ago.

If you use the Ten Tec TP-19 enclosure, I'll be happy to send you a label with
your call and build date on
it. A picture of mine in the TPC-19 is here,
I do like the charcoal color. The TP-19 dimensions on the Ten Tec web site
differ from the one I purchased. Mine is 2" x 4.75" x 4" and the PigRig fits

Changing freqs,say to go to 7122 for Wayne's nets, will require 4 xtals. Three
for the rcvr front end filter, and 1 for the local oscillator. Diz has crystals
as well as ESS.

I love this radio stuff !

Shame on you guys. Made me order one too, though it has bounced around in the
back of my mind since hearing Terry on his one day this winter.

Joe, et al,

Caught the fever and ordered mine yesterday. Hopefully, I will get mine built
and on the air, handing out #11. I have not been active in the club but hope
this little rig will spur me on!!!
