Favorite small coax

Darryl J Kelly
 

What's larger than RG-174 coax and smaller than RG-58? I found Belden 9252 RG-122/U coax, .160" outside diameter, inner conductor is size 22 wire, large enough to minimize losses and small enough to be not too heavy. It's the Goldilock's size just right for portable operations.

Found this in the parts room of N0NCD (SK) 

I don't know if it works, yet. 

Make an offer, it'll ship, either after I check it out.. 

or as it is right now.. 

I'm trying to help Linda, with finding new homes for all the equipment and

assortment of Ron's.


More to follow.



thank you for looking, 

Dale - WC7S

This Week's Wednesday and Thursday Nets

w2sh@...
 

I haven't seen the customary notices from Wayne and Terry, so I'm offering a partial view of these events from a geographically distant perspective.

We are having several days of delightful weather with temperature highs in the mid to upper seventies, bright sun and low humidity.  However, 40m and 80m condx were stinko last night, but rather unusual on 40m this morning.

With lots of QRN, I could only muster a 449 RST for Wayne, and didn't stick around to listen for anyone else.

The QRN on 80m was much worse.  I have never given a 149 RST, and doubt that Terry has ever received same.  The QRN was like being on a rifle range.  The only two letter combinations I copied, each only once, were Terry's "WQ" and "SH".  I made a blind guess that he had acknowledged my QNI attempt, and felt for a Pinocchio-sized nose when I sent "R  R de W2SH."

This morning I bullied my way to the front of the QNI line when I heard Terry at 559, and he reciprocated in kind.  Thereafter WØIIT was 229 and while he was transmitting K2HT, perhaps not hearing Bart, dropped his callsign just once.  At 11308Z K4EQ showing 559 here tried to QNI, but was unsuccessful.  At 1311Z when the freq was momentarily clear K2HT attempted to QNI with a 559/569 sig here, but apparently he was inaudible to all of you who are closer in.  WNØWWY was logged at 339 and WA5BDU at 129.  Later K2HT, with the best sig of everybody, gave it another try.  Terry's sig was down to 339 at 1322Z, but it had a brief uptick to 559 when he closed things down at 1324Z.

I find it unusual for 40m to work over near-kilomile distances after the sun has been up here for four hours, and with the summer solstice less than three weeks away.

72,

Charles (aka Chas), W2SH

Gm Dale, Jeff.

We found a stash of 3 or 4 in the "traveling kit box" for ham fest when we were at OZARKCON.
I think we had 2 left, but I am pretty sure they sold at FDIM?
Email Terry WA0ITP direct and ask him to check.
He has the kit.

I hope to but I'm not sure where I will be on those dates. Just about anyone can use a CW op though.

And don't forget the net was on 40 meters at 7070.5 
We are experimenting to see if 40 meters will help during the summer months.
The sun is just going down when the net starts and 
the storms have made things pretty tough this year.
Hope to see you there 9:00 pm on Wed nights.

I always want to but something always gets in the way. I was Field Day chairman of CAARC for years. We never made too great a score but had good radioing,  fun and food.

Hi Terry....................yes but at this time with my local club, W0UK, in Lawrence, KS.
Hope to work you! I’ll be setting up the CW station, using my old FT-450D.....not
wanting to take my K3 to the field just yet, hi. We’ll run on 40 and 20 meters CW.
 
Week of Jul 23-30 will have a station set up on the 7th floor of a condo in Panama City, FL, visiting my daughter and grand kids.
I’ll post the op times once I get that worked out. I’ll have a 20/40 dipole taped to the outside window of the condo facing ~ south.
There is a walk-out balcony there so will be easy and safe. I’ll be using my ole K1-4 at 5 to 7  watts. Might be fun if the Hur-WX holds out.
Thought about getting a new KX2 but holding off for now, hi.

Conditions were not the best but a grand effort from you fellas just the same. Must apologize for the maybe sometimes "iffy" CW, first time I have used the Vibroplex Lightning bug in anger (thanks Johnny and Chas), it was about time to switch from the practice oscillator to the radio. It will get better as I practice (please Lord I'll get better!). I am learning it's all about technique and having been used to an electronic keyer and paddle I'm slow to transform to being a bug user. Oh well, thanks all for putting up with me, much appreciated.
