Re: Simple Murania mod offers better performance

Stephen Myers
 

Hello all,
I must have been asleep, as I do not rember anything on a Murania radio. I am assuming it is a BCB radio. I would like to know more about it, Are there any files that I am overlooking?

Re: Simple Murania mod offers better performance

Everett Catlin
 

Just performed this modification on my Maurania. It really Helped ! I am now able to listen to WMCP 1280 kcs without 1340 kcs overloading it.Believe WMCP is 1 Kw and 1340 is 1.25 Kw. Both are Columbia Tn. Stations. WMCP antenna about 1 mile away and 1340 about 3 miles away. Still lightly hear 1340 but not to the extent that it is bothersome . With careful rotation I can eliminate 1340. Thanks for the mod from JIM, WB2LHP, it works great. Also WSM 650 kcs can be heard clear as a bell.

Thanks Jim,

Re: Simple Murania mod offers better performance

Jim WB2LHP in MI <jmarco1955@...>
 

That's great Larry...I'm glad it worked well for you...The loop antenna is a great idea...You could add an external wire antenna to the Murania by loose or capacitive coupling to the input of the TA7642...It won't give you the added selectivity of the loop but it will help with sensitivity...The only downside is you may get some blow-by from stronger stations...Thanks again for the feedback on the mod...The Murania is one fun radio...73 Jim WB2LHP

It only took a couple of minutes to do. I think the modulation is

I also added an external loop which added more sensitivity and selectivity

Peanut Power Sprint - Sunday October 7

Jim Stafford W4QO
 





A nice little event this Sunday, October 7 sponsored by our local QRP club ....  Slow CW.. not cutthroat speeds..  Give it a try....

The Bees have swarmed and the Skeeters are hunted. Now it's time for a little snack - 
                                       The Peanut Power Sprint!


Everyone plays... Outdoors, Indoors, QRP or higher power, CW, SSB.. There is even a QRO category >5watts!.


Sponsored by the North Georgia QRP Club (nogaqrp.org), this sprint will be held on Oct. 7, 2018 from 6PM to 8PM EDT,
(Oct. 7, 2018 - 2200z to 2359z). Full rules are on the NoGaQrP website -  http://www.nogaqrp.org/PeanutPower/rules.pdf

Your QSO will be worth more if you have a Peanut number; you now keep the same number each year..

This short sprint is different from most other QRP QSO events.

1. It is open to all amateurs at any power level. We do this to attract some new folks to QRP while running their
comfortable power - QRO (<= 100 watts pls). All are welcome. This is a fun event, not cut-throat!

2. It is a short sprint lasting only 2 hours and not tying up the entire afternoon. Although a brief sprint, please
run reasonable CW speeds so that all can copy.

3. It starts late in the day (right after close of CA QSO party!) which means we start at 3PM PDT, later than most contests.

4. There are 5 categories covering a variety of situations - the prestigious category in the Peanut Power Sprint ... 
1W CW, 2W PEP SSB or less and operating from the field....it's the GOOBER CLASS! SOTA/POTA anyone?

5. Certificates will be awarded for each of 5 category winners (minimum 3 entries per category).
   
6. Sprint encourages SSB as well as CW contacts. The exchange: RS(T), State/Province/Country (S/P/C), and your Peanut Number or Power.  Call CQ NUT and have FUN!

7. Multipliers count each band/mode. Work GA (or any other S/P/C) on 3 bands and 2 modes = 6 multiplier. 
Puts emphasis on switching bands and modes during the event. Check SSB on the quarter hour.

8. The bands are new this year and we encourage activity on all 3 permitted bands - 80M, 40M, and 20M. CW: 3561 khz, 7061 khz, 14061 khz SSB: 3999 LSB khz, 7999 LSB khz, and 14341 USB khz.  Spread out from those frequencies.

9. Logs are not submitted - simply a score - but keep your log, in case it's requested for verification. Watch the NoGaQrP website for results. There is an online score calculator. It's all on the website - http://nogaqrp.org/PeanutPower/ppsscore.php

10. Work stations holding a Peanut Power Number (PPN) for 7 points. Stations worked not having a PPN (they will send power instead) yield 3 points. Yes, QRO stations may request a PPN. Remember, you do not declare a category until you decide to send in your entry. If you get halfway through and change your power, simply enter in a different category than you originally thought..

Peanut numbers are now permanent.  Don't know or remember your number?
  See https://tinyurl.com/ybwarlh5  If you have requested a new number this year, this page will be updated before Sunday, Oct. 7

To request your PPN, send an email to NoGaNuT Pete at Pete@...    Requests for special numbers may no longer be accommodated. Remember to include the phrase - "PEANUT POWER NUMBER" in the subject line of your request.
But even without a number, get on and make some contacts, just send your output power followed by a W.

Dang, those goobers are tasting great! http://tinyurl.com/olkg4za

Re: Cricket 30

Gerry Edson
 

Mine came with dead crystals.  New crystals made the difference, but they are off frequency so far (10.106 is above 10.107 and 10.110 is below 10.109) that it is unusable with other Crickets.
