QRP kits at Universal Radio

Tom Sevart
 

Universal Radio currently has several QRP kits for sale in their used list, including a 4SQRP HF test set, Magic box, NS-40, SAVXO kit, and a couple of SS-40 receivers.  Also some G-QRP kits.  The 4SQRP kits have pretty good prices, and I don't think those are available any more.

I beleive they came from an estate sale.

Website is universal-radio.com, click on the "used list" button.

Good Evening Group
I forwarded your kit ideas to the clubs think tank and got a positive reply from one of our designers on the 2 meter cw rig.
We will see how it plays out.

Sorry I didn't missed the DMR net, but haven't yet added that mode to the shack.  If the 2 meter CW idea gets traction I will suggest it also have AM, and preferably a built in memory keyer (arduino or similar) that will allow for modulated CW as well as true CW. That may sound like a strange request,  but AM modulated CW is the approved mode for international Amateur Radio Direction Finding (ARDF). Lack of cheap transmitters has been a big stumbling block to expanding the sport in the US. 
Thanks for the consideration,
Don, W9EBK

Tonight's topic was " what radio kits or accessories would you like the

There where multiple requests for a 5 watt 2 meter cw transceiver,
multiple requests for a plug and play digital transceiver. Other
suggestions a tube type transmitter and receiver, a high quality code
practice oscillator, a crystal radio, an antenna and tuner package that
was very portable,a 6 meter cw transceiver, to bring back the HF test
kit, an 80 and 30 meter hill topper variant, and last and probably least
a 60 meter cw rig.


Thanks again to all the check ins and suggestions

Nice Net guys!
Sorry I missed it.
I worked late but also lost most of my voice to a fall head cold.

My XYL thinks this might be a good thing!!

I will pass the kit ideas on to the kit think thank and see where they go.

The 2 meter CW Rig sounds like fun,
No doubt it would be unique!

Re: [DigitalFM] TONIGHT'S DMR NET

Tim N9PUZ
 

During this evening's net and in previous nets there are occasionally transmissions which get "cut off" and the operator is still talking. I think two things may help with this:

1) Whether you are using a hot spot or a repeater, YOUR RADIO also has a time out timer. On my Tytera MD-380 the default value was 1 minute. It is easy to talk longer than that. I bumped my timeout timer up to 6 minutes to eliminate that problem.

2) Don't kerchunk your hotspot or repeater while someone else is transmitting. This seems to really confuse the system.

It's exciting to see the net growing!

73,

Tim N9PUZ

DMR Net

 

Just my observation.

I watched the TG on brandmeister and saw the same few calls keying up over people more then a few times. I don't think this was done intentionally so not going to point fingers but it locks up the TG and we hear nothing.

 For the net op and others that are already on the TG we all need to try and leave a few second space to allow people to activate the TG as well.

All of that considered I enjoy the 4sqrp Net and look forward to it next week.

DMR has its quirks but all in all this net runs better then most on DMR.

You almost made it to ZephyrHills, FL !!  Heard your CQ & KV6 ?  2 or 3 times, just not good enough for me to try. :(

Re: DMR NET TOPIC

That sounds good. I like the idea of a small paddle for our kits. How about a NS 160m transmitter or Cricket? I know, a 5 watt 160 meter Cricket. With the sun spots as they are this would be the perfect winter radio.  

Re: DMR NET TOPIC

JAMES DAVIDSON
 

oops  this is  jim davidson  kc0dd   . the key could be adaptable to some of the kits with options to our diff. radios already in use  like different mounting brackets ect.
