Paul:

I don't think you missed much.  I listened for almost an hour and heard nothing.  I was on the phone at the time and didn't think it would be polite to try calling CQ -hi.

SSS Reporting

John Lonigro
 

I forgot to mention that, as usual, you should report your score at qrpcontest.com/4SQRP.

John AA0VE


Send in your score

John Lonigro
 

Don't forget to send in your score. If you listened at least 15 minutes and heard nothing (as I did), go ahead and enter zero in the appropriate fields, just to show your interest in the SSS. We'll do this informal survey until the end of the year, which means one more time. As usual, I'll try to remember to announce this month's winner on Wednesday morning, so please be sure to enter your score by Tuesday night.

Remember, each monthly winner receives an E-certificate (suitable for E-framing). After next month's sprint, I'll determine the overall winner (from November, 2015 through December, 2016). Another E-certificate will go to that person.

Second Sunday Sprint reminder

John Lonigro
 

Contrary to rumors (started by me), the Second Sunday Sprint does NOT fall on Tuesday this month. It is TOMORROW night, November 13th, from 7:00pm till 9:00 pm CST. To needlessly complicate things, if you are using UTC, then it is Monday from 0100 to 0300. But it will NEVER be on Tuesday.

Please go to qrpcontest.com for details and to report your score. The more people who try to make contacts, the more likely some will get through, and the more fun we all will have. Note that I am one of the worst offenders. "Do as I say, not as I do!"

If I remember, I'll try to send one more reminder tomorrow afternoon, but no promises.

72,

John, AA0VE


QRV from Hutchinson Kansas tomorrow

Paul Smith
 

I will be QRV from Hutchinson Kansas tomorrow as my wife is meeting with her State Association group at the College.

I will use the 4 state frequencies if possible. Give a listen on 40, 30 ane 20

Hope to make some contacts.

Re: Resources to design transcievers

Nick-WA5BDU
 

It’s a hard question to try to answer because there’s no one-stop resource.  EMRFD as mentioned below is a good one. W7ZOI announced on the EMRFD discussion group recently that ARRL is discontinuing it. However, in discussions it seems several ham stores still have it in stock. And in further discussion, it now appears that ARRL is going to bring the book back into publication. Whether there will be a revision along with that is not yet known.
 
As others have said, building some simple stuff is the best way to learn. You’ll run into questions you didn’t anticipate and start “writing your own book”. 
 
Web blogs and websites can be good. Especially those where the author discusses how he did the design and problems he solved, rather than just posting the schematic and parts list. For example VE7BPO’s blog (now) and website (earlier).
 
Also useful to the struggling designer are PC based tools.  Especially a free spice program such as LTspice and various filter design programs.

Paul,

See if you can find a copy of Experimental Methods In RF Design by
W7ZOI. It has a lot of design information. It is an ARRL publication,
but is currently out of print.

The ARRL Handbook also has lot of information.

Happy Experimenting.

An outstanding effort

Wayne Dillon
 

Good morning all,
Just wanted to say thanks to Paul - N0NBD - for an outstanding effort on 80m last evening, both CW and PSK31. It was a blast to be able to get on 80m with the new antenna but even better to work the 4SQRP nets because Paul has been putting in the effort, thank you sir, thankyou very much.
C U all next week (or on SSS if I can wrangle a pass).

Phil,

I have no idea why I never thought to look a the ARRL resources.

I will look into those chips and the receiver you are suggesting.


Thank you,

Hello Paul,
 
The sources are many; the question is which to look at.
A good starting place might be to check the resources that the ARRL has to offer. Take a look at their website.
 
If it is your first design, I’d suggest that you consider a basic single-conversion receiver with a crystal oscillator.
There you’d need a tuned circuit front end (from antenna), a mixer – such as the NE602 – and an audio amplifier,
perhaps the LM386.
 
You can find circuit configurations (suggestions) for using those chips by using your browser. For example, type in NE602, and you’ll get a
list of websites to look at. Most of the chip vendors include a technical specification and suggestive circuits.
 
Good luck and have fun. One other item. You can use the formulas in the ARRL handbook to figure out what L and C values you’ll need
for each tuned circuit.
