Cricket heard in Utah, John Wayne, and Award.!

WA0ITP
 

Woo Hoo!!  Great range for Crickets.  Some of the build session Crickets were reported to be making 1.1W, so they may stretch out even further.  These are the John Waynes of the Cricket population :o)  If you have a John Wayne Cricket, you are lucky - but check the temp of Q2 often.

Check out http://4sqrp.com/cricket.php tmmrw for a new Cricket award invented and hosted by Bill Dekle, KV6Z.  It promises to be great fun.

Pse post your Cricket success right here on the 4sqrp and 4sqrpcricket reflectors , and on QRP-L also. Let the world know that the Crickets are coming.

NC7J is 933 miles away and reported a 3 dB SNR. I think that means that my Cricket was twice as strong as the noise.

I see Cricketeer in my future. Oh yeah.

This is a message for those that purchased those boards.  Decals were included with the board for labeling the filter switch & fine tuning pot on the Bayou Jumper front panel.

Decals are easy to apply, especially if you ever built some plastic model cars, but should you experience an unexplainable boo boo and need another set, let me know and I will see if I can get another set to you.

Let me know how your build goes, and your critique of the operation of the board.

I included in your package, a link for the manual, and the manual includes a Bill-Of-Materials with part numbers and vendor source for the needed parts.

Re: PC

Keith:

Another concern is Microsoft stopped supporting XP quite a while ago. Any security issues found after support stopped will not be fixed. I'm keeping one Win XP computer for an old HP scanner I've got (that HP decided not to write Win10 drivers for), but I've got the internet turned off for that machine. Upgrading the old CPU to Windows 10 turns out to cost only a little less than buying a cheap new Windows 10 computer.

Another option, as mentioned by several people, is to switch to Linux. I current run "wine" on my Linux computer and am able to run many Windows programs from it, even the ExpressPCB software mentioned at Ozarkcon.

I've been very satisfied with Salix:

I have it running on my Lenovo T410 and it works very well. I even
installed it on an aging IBM T41 I have and though I did have to select
a different kernel, it installed and ran just fine on that quite old
hardware.

Re: Hidden Oscillator - FOUND !!!

Nick-WA5BDU
 

It was fun and a bit surprising to find the hidden TX. 
 
I was going to borrow a small directional loop from N5IB but couldn’t find him in time, so I went to my room and turned on the KX3 with its dummy load antenna which consisted of a 51 ohm resistor in series with a loop of wire about 4’ in diameter.
 
When I turned on the rig the signal was loud and clear, but wasn’t moving the S-meter. I was on the 2nd floor maybe ten or so doors down from the lobby. I wadded up the wire and ran up and down the aisles watching the S-meter. I found that the signal was peaking up in the area near the ticket booth in the corner of the lobby where we had picked up our packets.  It was also loud in that part of the flea market room across the wall and also in the lobby to the left of the ticket booth.  I also checked just outside.
 
I could see that it was strongest (S8 with the dummy load antenna) right in that area left of the ticket booth. There was a suit of armor and a table with black cloth covering it and a bell on top of it.  I crawled under the table and found a package of mini donuts frosted with powdered sugar.  Was it in there?  No.  I kept going to the suit of armor where the signal was strong, but it had sharp edges and seemed a bit fragile for a frantic/clumsy search so I assumed the transmitter wouldn’t be inside of it.
 
Finally I started looking UP.  There was some wooden trim extending down from the ceiling about a foot or so that defined the nook the table with the bell sat in. The back side of that trim had a small edge or shelf about an inch or two wide and sitting on it was a small white plastic case with two or three feet of wire exiting the top.  Got it!
 
Better to be lucky than good?  Maybe.
