Hello Sam
You gotta have one!!
They will be for sale soon!
The board house shipped the boards to the wrong address!!

Nice little tame critters that hop from state to state but only make nice clear CW notes, but 
No Chips!!

There's no reason a kit should sit idle because the kit maker mothballed it. This is why the ham community should push for projects to be made open source after a few years of exclusive kit sales.

​Well, something is either open source or it's not. "Open source after a few years" is oxymoronic. Open source is both a personal philosophy and a business strategy. As a philosophy, it is based on the observation that what a person designs (or writes or even thinks) is 99.9% the work of other people anyway. I've never seen a radio design that didn't depend on design principles long and openly available: the fundamental principles of RF physics--most of which are of 19th century origin--and the oscillator, filter, and amplifier topologies, developed in the 20th century. DDS, DSP, and SDR are based on trigonometric manipulations and semiconductor methodologies that their designers didn't invent either.

This is not to suggest that designers such as Doug Demaw, Wes Hayward, Ashar Farhan, and others made no contributions to the radio art, but I think it's important to keep things in perspective when asserting ownership over a particular design that was, in essence, simply the rearranging of design elements borrowed from other people.

If a design element is creative enough such that it exists no where else (yet), it can of course be patented as a form of enforceable government protection of a limited proprietary right, but these days the bar seems to be pretty low in terms of creativity. The trouble with patents, though, it that they require the public disclosure of the supposedly-creative elements, thus showing all who care to look just how the "innovation" works. A more secure approach is to just keep the design as secret as possible--hence the commercial use of house numbers for components, or the erasing or obscuring of vendor part numbers. Certainly the publishing of a full schematic--outside the ethics of Open Source--is virtually unknown; especially in our era of "no user-serviceable parts" products.

By application, then, to Ham radio designers of kits, if they want to be the exclusive owner of their designs, they should refrain from publishing their schematics, parts lists, and design theory. The reason that's never done is that the ethos of Ham radio is the open sharing of knowledge and design. It's also not done because the primary incentive in the case of Ham radio is recognition and a sense of contribution rather than for profit.

In philosophical logic then--if not in intent--the designer of the kit is a separate entity from the seller, even if it's the same person. As a designer, he or she creates and shares knowledge. As a seller, he buys and packages components for sale to others. This is the core of Open Source business. Knowledge (including design) is freely available, but you have to pay for hardware. In our case, the designer/seller of a kit has a big advantage over other potential sellers in that his was the first and the one most likely to be associated with it in the customer's mind. If there is an element of price or feature competition involved later, all the better for everyone.

73,


Todd

Re: Cricket on digital

Right, you can't just take over someone's project - but if you have the circuit design, you could reverse engineer the design. There's no reason a kit should sit idle because the kit maker mothballed it. This is why the ham community should push for projects to be made open source after a few years of exclusive kit sales.

In the presentation he did mention a computer interface, but to me it wasn't entirely clear it was for CW or digital modes.  Right now the Cricket is CW only.  To do digital modes it would have to do SSB.

The Warbler PSK-80 has been abandoned.  Why not just take over that project and update it rather than adding SSB to the Cricket?

I had 9 extra Soup'er Up'er printed circuit boards from the prototype/beta board run, and they were all purchased at OzarkCon by noon on Saturday.
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.
I feel you will agree this little board does 'Soup Up' the Bayou Jumper, which is a GREAT & FUN radio kit to begin with !!

Jim,

    At this point in time, had not planned to sell more boards, and I am waiting to see if Four State will decide to pick it up as a kit offering.  If they decide not to, I will look into accommodating those wanting the board.

Hello David.

Will you be selling more boards or was Ozarkcon the only ones you plan to sell?  If you are going to make more,  how much are you asking for them?

Thank you.

I had 9 extra Soup'er Up'er printed circuit boards from the prototype/beta board run, and they were all purchased at OzarkCon by noon on Saturday.

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.

I feel you will agree this little board does 'Soup Up' the Bayou Jumper, which is a GREAT & FUN radio kit to begin with !!

Re: Wednesday evening nets

w2sh@...
 

80m was noisy and NQ0RP's sig was mostly 349, but improved a bit towards the end towards 449; still, it was a pretty shaky QNI from me.


I was of course mostly in the receive mode throughout the net.  Here's how the other QNIers fared in NJ:


KV6Z              559

WA9PWP       559/569

N0NBD           579

NK8O             Unreadable

AC0BQ          569/579

AF5AF           Inaudible

WA0ITP         569


Keep in mind that this was a fairly long-lasting net, and as more darkness occurred all sigs became a bit stronger, e.g., Bill and Terry might well have swapped RSTs if their places in the QNI queue had been reversed.


72,


Charles (aka Chas), W2SH

Nice net on 80 meters!
I was glad I could check in for a change.

I had a good copy on Chas and a light copy on Paul on 40 meters.
Yes the SSB skip was pretty rough.

Good morning all,
OK, 40m was crap last evening, too much SSB spatter, maybe an alternative 40m QRG say 7116? I'll try and get a listen down that end and see how bad the spatter is.
Last evening's 40m checkins were:
WA9PWP - Paul - WI
W2SH - Charles - NJ

80m checkins:
KV6Z - Bill - OK
WA9PWP - Paul - WI
N0NBD - Paul - KS
NK8O - Chas - KS
AC0BQ - Johnny - KS
AF5AF - Rocky - AR
WA0ITP - Terry - IA
W2SH - Charles - NJ

W2SH - Charles - faded right out at the end but I'm happy to say he did make it into both nets.
Not only but also, PSK31 is now up andrunning at the NQ0RP shack so I guess I'll be visiting the dark side occasionally :) I'll do the first call around 20:00 CDT (01:00z) Friday evening on 5580.5 with the usual caveat, +/- as needed.

Thanks all es be blessed,
Wayne - NQ0RP
