Re: PigRig Can't Stop Talking

I can't comment on that but I experienced the same until I plugged in the paddles , then it did what it was supposed to do. If I turn it  on without the paddles, uncontrolled dits.

Re: Banner

Jim Sheldon
 

Guys,
I just finished building KD0ZZ's coax amplifier antenna as described in this issue of the Banner.  Took a little deep thought, but I solved the major problem of finding the Tungsten wire by recycling a bunch of those old, now semi-illegal 100 watt light bulbs and salvaging the Thoriated Tungsten filaments.  It took several thousand bulbs to get enough wire and splicing the ends together took some doing.  I had to buy one of those huge spot welders from Harbor Freight to achieve this, but since the filaments are actually spiral wound, the final result was physically shorter than if you laid out the quarter wave of wire in a straight line.  This is not a problem due to the absence of velocity factor in the Tungsten filament wire.  Also, Thoriated Tungsten is slightly "Radio Active" so it improves the amplification by a small amount, about .75 dB.  Good use for those old 100 watt lightbulbs that have been replaced by Chinese CFL bulbs which fail much sooner than the called for 5000 hours!

Re: Banner

Donald Kelly
 

I enjoyed Tommy Henderson – WD5AGO’s contribution.

 

Homebrewing at UHF is a different world. I can almost relate (but not really) from my experience recently making a clean, stable heterodyne oscillator for 30MHz.

 

Imagine…

 

Stability at 2,160,000,000 cycles per second.

 

I have the week off. First time of since November. I am going to work on the LO of my HB tube receiver at a whopping 3,000,000 cycle per second.

 

Radio is really amazing!

QRP2004 Partial Kit For Sale

Dan Reynolds
 

I have too many projects and right now a Genesis G59 is taking center stage for me. I need to thin the herd as they say.
What I have:
I have the FAR circuit boards.
I have completed the micro-controller board with keypad. All it needed was the proper encoder and I am including that.
I have not started any of the other boards.
I have a LOT of documentation and pictures.
I have all the IC's required except for an LM380N. Note: this includes all the
hard to get ICs.
I have all the transistors except for 2N2905 & 2N3866.
I have all the diodes (including varactors) except for (2) 1N34's, (4) 5V zeners, and the 1N4148's.
I have the slug tuned inductors.
No parts for 6M -- didn't plan to build it for that band.
I have the polyester caps and 1% resistors if you want them.
I have a built up "sub-chassis" if you want that.
I have some relays but they won't fit the LPF/BPF board, if you want them.
All for $75 plus shipping.

Sorry Jeremy, I would have to agree with Rich. Sometimes depending on the publicity I will have ten kits to get addressed and ready for the PO.... Another step would just muddy the water for me.
Thanks

Hi Jeremy,

As a kitter, no thanks to "kitters could go onto there and indicate the kit has been mailed too!"  Too many hands required and extra details. The other concern may include privacy.

Terry - is there anything now included on the emails to identify the person doing the ordering?  Maybe you could use a similar process to update a web page with received orders, and the date they were received.  Heck, with the right setup, kitters could go onto there and indicate the kit has been mailed too!  I have a little experience in doing stuff like that, and could probably do it, if there was enough interest.  Might actually be nice to wipe the rust off my coding skills!
