Re: SMD beginners kit?

David Wilcox
 

I don't need another keyer but I am addicted to the 4SQRP kits...... Will have to build another rig to put it in.  Hi!  I used the SMD caps on my 1W20 kit but more practice is always welcome.

Just used my 4SQRP antenna tuner last night for the first time and it matched a 60 foot L that I threw up last fall.  Worked well and tuned it down to 1:1 on my analyzer.  Another 4SQRP success.  Lousy antenna but it gets me on the air until I can get a better antenna up.  When the bands are hot (read that "warm") and a contest is on I make contacts.

Just my 2 cents worth.

I want to tell you that we are considering a beginners SMD keyer Kit.
Designer by Craig AA0ZZ and very similar in function to the EZ keyer line up.

Very small only about 1X1 inches, uses internal power from the rig, will produce a side tone to the rigs audio, and the push buttons can be mounted off the board to save space.

We think it would be a great confidence builder, as well as a functional kit for small space challenged QRP rigs.
Your feed back is welcome!

Re: SMD beginners kit?

A bite sized, useful smd kit does sound like a nice idea.  

In my dreams it would provide both a keyer and audio frequency readout, or maybe an idea for a second module.  

I can't project the market, but with a board few of us should fear the smd.  A decent magnifier makes it possible even for those of us with degraded vision.  

Unrelated, a nice full George Dobbs presentation now at soldersmoke.

Re: On the air anyone?

Paul Smith
 

I was on the air this morning on 20 and 40. The solar flux was 81 and NO ONE Was on the bands! I called CQ and 9 RBN stations heard me in 15 minutes on 20 and a little later 5 stations heard me on 40..... I think the band could have been worked but not a op was on. Summer doldrums still I guess. de Paul N0NBD

Subject: [4sqrp] On the air anyone?



Good evening:
I was just wondering if anyone has been on the air today?
I was doing computer stuff this morning and
40m was open to eastern MO and Central MI!
I worked a new CW op and a more seasoned one on 7.122.
Tells me I need to monitor more often.
I guess this proves the bands might be ok if we call CQ or monitor them
now and then.
I plan to be listening on 40 tomorrow morning with coffee on hand.
Listen for me or call CQ.

Re: New SMD "beginners kit"

Johnny AC0BQ
 

Thanks for the input Gary
Will be a few weeks, Craig is converting his ez keyer design into SMD.
Won't be very many parts and will be very small.
I'm going to try to shoot a demo video on how to "cook" the paste solder in a cheap wal mart skillet!
I hope it gives some us some confidence!!
Thanks

Hi Johnny

That's a great idea.  I have been shying away from SMD, but time to get my feet wet.  I could actually use two right now for a couple of projects.

Good evening all:
We're thinking about offering a SMD "beginners" kit to our line up for those who have never tried, or want to try their hand at SMD kit building, without breaking the bank!

It would be a very small usable AA0ZZ  keyer that would fit in almost any existing QRP rig you may have.

It's foot print would be less than 1" square, powered by the rigs power, with 1 or 2 push buttons that would be mounted off the circuit board in a location that's convenient.

Very small, new technology, and something to use!
What do you think??

I'm just north of Ron, AG1P, in Newport, Oregon.  Just about every day here seems to settle in the low 60's with a somewhat chilly ocean breeze!  We've been here a couple of weeks now, and will be here for the rest of the month before heading back to AZ.  Coming to Oregon in the summer is our annual event to get away from the AZ summer heat.  We love September here!
