Actually.. if there is interest, I will clean them up. IF not.. trash bay.

Oh.. and BTW.. I've a complete key system too. if someone wants it. 


not qrp.. but all of it runs on low power. Batteries will hold up for a long long long time.

Hi Chas,

  Yes, you are completely correct, on both. Yes, and I can relate to wife concerns too.. have similar issues here.

I hate to see them go too.. But if someone doesn't want them for the cost of shipping..(actual).. then away they go.

Someone wants them, I'll clean them to make them presentable to XYL.. so they can be talked about, rather than sworn at.  


Have a great day,

Re: FS: antique telephones [1 Attachment]

On that same topic, a telephone museum opened up recently in the St. Louis area.  It traces the 150 year history of phones.  They have a phone booth exhibit, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't one of the ones used by Superman (hi).  I think the phones Dale has for sale are probably represented, but, believe it or not, they are near the "modern" portion of the museum.

Hope everyone had a good Field Day this past weekend.  I participated only slightly, helping to put up a G5RV antenna and volunteering to put together our ARRL submittal, which is the least fun (but still essential) part of the weekend.

If you found yourself rusty with your CW, remember the 4SQRP nets on Wednesday evenings and Thursday mornings.  And don't forget the Second Sunday Sprint.  The next sprint will be on July 10th.  As usual, I'll try to send ample reminders.

RMRc net

Dale Putnam
 

Mother Nature wins this one.. 

Had AA7CU check in on 20.. but heard no one else.. went to QSY and was 

reminded to look outside, checked the lightning map, https://www.lightningmaps.org/?lang=en#m=sat;r=0;t=2;s=0;o=0;b=;n=0;y=41.1444;x=-104.6104;z=10;d=2;dl=2;dc=0;

and decided discretion is the better part of valor.. so.. cancelled the RMRC net on 40. 

This is a long term, slow moving, charged storm.. 

See you Thurs.

Learning to copy code off air with keyboard..........FD

Phil <w0xiphil@...>
 

file=typing-and-code-062816
 
The following url address is one of the typing programs I found for drilling..............
 
 
Hey, found this typing program that might help with learning to type out/copy CW sources via keybaord.
 
Copied  the following off the air: "w4fde 73 and have a good day"
 
Yesterday's FD CW experience with a keyboard and n3fjp logging program prompted this drill activity.
 
I found that I type reasonably at about 40 WPM, sufficient to copy clear code at about 20.....
 
Interference and noise add to the fun!
 
Give the program listed above a try.

Re: FS NE-Scaf filter

 

This filter is built up inside a nice compact silver metal box and will dig out the weakest CW station under these band conditions.\$50.00 shipped and any location past the mid West add $5.00 for shipping.
I also have the older MFJ 5 WATT CW rigs,40 and 20 Meters.
One has the CW filter and the other has the filter and the keyer.
Make an offer for both + shipping

GM Sam,

Thanks for trying to check in, and FB on the AC-1 Clone.  I heard Ken working you but didn't try to break in. 

If you have, or can find, a Magic Box  http://www.4sqrp.com/MagicBox.php  you will have the ideal QSK device for a separate transmitter, receiver, and favorite keyer setup.  It works like "magic".

Last Week's News This Week From N5AF:

Nary a dit last week during the net - nothing. After the net time was over I
did work W4QO/QRP on 7122. This was my first 4SQRP operation with my new
DL3ECN clone-kit of the old Ameco AC-1, a 6V6 xtal controlled 6V6GT ( Ken-Rad
) at 4 Watts output. About 10 QSOs with it so far. I was using a K4VIZ solid
brass vertical bug last week. Now I gotta un-learn 55 years of iambic
electronic keying and/or learn to switch between them.

This Week's News This Week From N5AF:

I had a fairly good copy on NQ0RP and AF5AF both - again running the AC-1
clone at 4 Watts. After the net, I also worked WA89REI/QRP, a 4SQRP member in
Michigan. I was using a Russian Army straight key tonight.

I should have the Ozark Patrol on tomorrow.

Like you I have have been through several cycles and I have never seen the bands this bad.  This was the 2nd week that I have not been able to hear NCS WQ5RP(Terry WA0ITP) at all.  In fact, yesterday morning I heard nobody:-(

Things must get better!!!

I am looking forward to seeing what the fox hunts will be like!!!!

Yes indeed, but checkins are sparse.  Some due to bands and some due to summer I think. Thanks for listening and hope to work you soon..

Re: Chekins

Here in NC, 80, 40, 30 and 20 have very few signals - only the strong ones are being heard.
No wonder QRP signals are weak.
Nasty propagation devils are to blame - we need some 'angels' for field day.
