Had not real great condx today, with 5 checkins: but good conversation with three.
K2HT - Dick in Mo.. was very very light to me, but K0DTJ , Brian in Ca, helped out and
we got Dick recognized. W5GW - Gary in Tx, doing real well, 'til the phone got him...
Then K9JWV - Jim in Ut dropped by, with words of wisdom and props..
The bright ending? Was K7ITN dropping in for a first Q on his new MTR.
That was a blast, and it sounds great! So he is off to SOTA this weekend.
And I'll be doing the 7QP, getting the tarnish off the key, and will be looking for y'all
next Tuesday, with reports of the weekend from ea.
 
K2HT, K0DTJ, W5GW,K9JWV, K7ITN - WC7S - NC   5/02/03

Have a great day,

Hi Dave,

Here's a long shot that might be fun. I read some time ago about a guy in Montana that gathered up the raw material and then molded his own large rods. Don't recall the url but you might try a google search on such.

From under snow drifts and beneath a bright clear sky, will come the cry:
 
CQ RMR CQ RMR de WC7S QNI PSE K
 
and your answer is welcome... at any speed you want. I'll match you, we'll exchange info...
member (of club/group)  numbers, temps, years licensed... or number of antennas still standing.
Or just about anything else too...
Net lasts about 45 minutes, and after we chat a bit... another call.. hopefully leaving enough room for
everyone, to call in.
Y'all come, y'a 'ear?

Have a great day,

Hello 4SQRPers!

I could use a bit of assistance tracking down a source for ferrite rods or loopstick antennas. I'd like to be able to obtain at least 100. Amidon has rods, but are pretty expensive. Anyone have a favorite surplus or import source I should check out?

Thanks

I'd check with Rex at QRPme to see if his China connection can get something like that. Other than that, probably eBay from one of the sellers. Maybe negotiate a lower price with 100 unit quantity.

Re: LT SPICE circuit draw and simulate program DOWNLOAD

Nick-WA5BDU
 

Yes, LTSpice is one of the very best free technical programs out there.  True, there's a learning curve if you want to get into complex stuff, imported models, etc., but you can start simple.

BTW, I uploaded a model of the HI-PER-MITE filter recently.  It's in the "files" area of the 4SQRP Yahoo group page.

Hi Guys,

snip

One of the programs I've used at least once a week is still available
free as a download from Linear Technology; it is called LTspice and
allows you to draw circuit schematics, save and/or print them, and
simulate the circuit, showing calculations, signal traces, and frequency
responses (and freq content)!

Documentation is reasonable but it takes a bit of time to learn. You can
download LTspice from www.linear.com and then go to tools to find the
LTspice IV download. Download is very quick. It installed AOK on Windows
7 and I had previously used it on Windows Vista home edition too.

Thanks Terry, I like that new key. Liked the other key too but the Brass Racer is kind of nice.

I didn't hear anything on 40. I was a little late to the show, tho...

Time to batten down the hatches, they're predicting a drop in temp - it was in the mid to upper 80's today here - and supposed to be down to 50 by the weekend! Gotta' love the Midwest weather. I heard someone talking about snow in MN or somewhere!
