Need Help with Ozarkcon Prize

Sean Edwards
 

This was my first Ozarkcon and I had a great time!  I won a prize, generously donated by Larry Hastings AB0AH.  It is a code practice oscillator kit, but there is no documentation,  no bom, no parts  list, no schematic, and no instructions.  The circuit board is etched, but there are no holes drilled through the pads.

I have a picture of the circuit board if you think you can identify where the kit came from or know where I can request documentation.  If you think you can help, contact me off list and I can send a picture of the circuit board.

Re: FOXTRAVAGANZA!!

Announcing a Fox Extravaganza with less than 24-hour's notice was an unfortunate error.  Scheduling it for the same time as the NAQCC's important 150th monthly sprint was another.


This hound will be QRV throughout during the NAQCC affair.  All who decide to join us NAQCCers can call "CQ NA" if they want to join us, using their NAQCC  # as the final part of the exchange if members; otherwise their power output.


72,


Charles, W2SH

NAQCC # 56

The NAQCC Sprint will be on tonight also.. with the FOXTRAVAGANZA..
The NAQCC exchange is RST STATE PWR or #
The FOXHUNT exchange is RST STATE NAME PWR

For the FOXHUNT FOX, HOUNDS, and Committee, who will be working each other.. all for all.. in order to share with the NAQCC and help everyone have a great time.. let's work them too.. I happen to have an NAQCC number.. and will make my exchange:

RST WY JIM nr 272 5w IF you don't have a number.. just send your power.
The only catch may be in getting their name.. and in that case.. from an NAQCC member, it would be real easy to log in the name as NAQCC..

that covers the needed info.. for the FOXHUNT.. and for the NAQCC..

Now, for the NAQCC.. they have scoring to worry about..
FOXHUNT folks will not.. so the more we work.. the happier we get. And.. the more fun for all.

ALSO ---
because we will have many more stations in the woods than normal.. let's expand to utilize ALL that we can. In other words.. BIGGER WOODS. IF you find a clear spot below 7.030.. go for it.. or above 7.050.. spread out to ease the pressure a bit..

Let's all have fun..
GOOD LUCK!! See you in the wider woods


Have a great day,

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.

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.
