I'm leaving tomorrow morning early. Google says about six hours.

So, why is today taking so long!!

PS Terry missed you last night on the net. Between the static crashes and the antenna not loading up good I was doomed.

The 3 terminal LM317 is easy to overlook , since it is in a package just like all of the transistors . So be sure and check the numbers on your transistors to make sure one of them isn't the LM317 .

It all went pretty smoothly for me on the transformers once I just took a step back slowed down and did it word by word and picture by picture .

Take your time and you will have a nice rig . Have a receiver sitting on the piggy factory frequency right now and most of the time I am in the shack .

Hope to get back to construction this afternoon.  The two transformers were a total bear, but hopefully they are finally correct.  Make sure you look at the picture of T2 before you start winding and installing it,  For some reason the light didn't go on until I saw the picture on the next page,

Good net Terry, considering the limitations I'd say you did an outstanding job.

Last night's net was a lesson in reception and copying CW. Lots of QRN and QSB here in Branson. Additionally my ant is short on 80M and not too efficient. http://www.wa0itp.com/stonecastle_ant.html

It was a struggle on this end and I'm sri if I missed some of you who tried to make it in. Thanks to all who stuck with me to complete the contact. Some were very strong, including WR9H, W4RK, K2HT, but most took all the gain and pain managment I could muster. Sounded like it's time for a hard limiter between the earphones and the rig.

K0N will be on the air this weekend and several ops will be using WQ5RP also, so pse look for them around the watering holes, and on QRPspots.com.

Checking in were:
W4RTK Bill JEFFERSON CITY, MO
K2HT Dick WELLSVILLE, MO
WB0QQT Steve Lincoln
WR9H Herb Rockford, Il
KB4QQJ Randy Burlington, NC
KD4OBQ Pat Cheyenne, OK

Thank you agn es hope to cu next week.

Have fun in Branson!

I wanted to wish you all a great time in Branson this weekend. I had a great time last year but unfortunately work and a number of other responsibilities just made it impossible this year. I hope to manage some air time this weekend though, so may hear K0N and WQ5RP.
