Time for me to quit grouching about the propagation and try to do something about it.  Anyone want to try a sked from the Four State area into SEIA? Anyday, anytime, and any band.  I suspect 80M at about 6 or 7P would work ok.

Sked results on 3564

WA0ITP
 

At 6p I was able to work N0XM, Mike from Wichita he was abt an S4 early on, rising to S9 near the end. I was much weaker on his end. 

At abt 6:45 I heard some GA stations at S7

At 7P I listened and called for AC0BQ and N0NBD, but no joy.

Conclusion? None, the sample size is too small.  But it may indicate that the band goes long after 6 or so.  Or my antenna needs maintenance, or it may mean nothing.  But is was fun trying.  Tnx Mike for the call, appreciate it.

Re: Sked Anyone?

Hi Terry,
Would love to have a sked with you but I haven't heard anybody on the 4 state nets.  I have also listened for you on Thursday mornings and still nothing.  I can't hear any of the net control stations. I always check the net reports and the calls are very long skip. I tried the SSS and only heard 3 calls working.  Again all very long skip.  I'm going to try an NVIS antenna to see if that might help.  I figure Johnny, Paul, and Bill are too close to me and probably skipping over me.   I'll keep listening and trying to figure out something that works.

I know you guys all work real jobs with regular hours, but I will be on 40 meters most afternoons hanging around the SKCC frequencies (need 31 for T8).  I leave the radio on in the evening, but most times after sunset 40 meters is finished.

Unbuilt 4SQRP SS-RX, SS-TX and Magic Box kits for sale

Steve Ireland <vk6vz@...>
 

For sale is are three unbuilt 4-State QRP kits to build a high-performance 40m QRP CW station, with full-break-in and capable of up to 9W output.

The items are:

1. K8IQY SS-40 Stable and Sensitive 40M Receiver 
The SS-40 high performance receiver was designed by Jim Kortge, K8IQY. SS stands for "Stable and Sensitive". It has an extremely quiet amplifier chain and a matched crystal IF filter provides a steep-sided 500 Hz bandpass and outstanding opposite sideband rejection. A variable crystal oscillator provides 25-30 kHZ of smooth stable tuning. Further details at: http://www.4sqrp.com/SS40.php

2. K8IQY SS-40TX transmitter
This is a companion to the SS-40 receiver and produces up to 9 watts (can be set to 5W), using a hefty, cool running MOSFET as a final. All parts are through-hole lead parts. Further details at: http://www.4sqrp.com/ss40tx.php

3. K8IQY Magic Box TR Switching System
The Magic Box is a solid-state, all-electronic, transmit/receive switching system that allows a separate receiver and transmitter to transceive with full (or semi) QSK. An Atmel Microcontroller handles the timing for five functions- transmitter keying, transmitter antenna switching, receiver antenna switching, receiver audio switching, plus a side tone oscillator. For further details, see http://www.4sqrp.com/MagicBox.php 

 

The three kits were bought as a package from Kanga UK and are being sold as a package. Sorry I realise the Magic Box is highly sought-after, but will not separate. 

 

US$90 for the three kits, plus postage. Payment can be made by PayPal. Please email me in the first instance.
