Re: ADV: Re: [4SQRP] Hilltopper 40m

 

I am not 100% if it did make a difference as I didn't make any measurements on it before/after. I have made more than a few filter stages where grounding them like that is pretty standard and good build procedure, granted in older oscillator variations where having them grounded is a good idea. Since this is based on the 5351 chip it may not play the same role.

I did it on this build as I took note of a well placed gnd via and said to myself "Can't hurt" so I did it. Since this was a build for another fellow I made sure to build this as if it were for myself.

Hey Bill !

I was wondering why you went QRT so quickly....... thought it was something I said or was trying to say !  I am running 5w with my FT-450D, 35.5 ft endfed Inv. V at only 18ft at the apex AGL.  You are 969 miles at 309 deg. from me.  My ant. is not pure inverted V but a lazy one. 

FWIW your signal was better at 8 CST than at 5 CST.  I copied KA5JRX well as you might expect 80w at 433 miles.

I guess that you need to know how many tried vs how many were successful to figure much out from the results.  As you know, I was busy during the 6 & 7 Nets, almost stayed home from cards but glad I didn't 'cause I won 50 cents !

Thanks for letting me try to learn CW on your nickel.

Interesting night. I called the net 4 times as an experiment and here are the results:

5 pm CST  -  3 QNIs
     KK4ITX     John     FL
     KA5JRX    Bob     GA     Not a member and running 80w
     W0MFQ    Tom     MO    Running 5w

6 pm CST   -   0 QNIs

7 pm CST   -   0 QNIs

8 pm CST   -   3 QNIs
     KO8S/4     Karl     FL
     AB4QL      Barry   AL
     KK4ITX     John     FL

I had to pull the plug in the middle of the 8 pm Net QSO with KK4ITX due to lightning in the area.
I suspect I may have gotten other QNIs on the 8 pm Net.

The QSO with W0MFQ is notable - he was the only QRP close-in station but there is not enough data to demonstrate that a time shift for the net is warranted.
Probably best to keep the net at 8 pm CST.

David-

My experience has been that grounding the case of the last crystal (Y4) is sufficient.  Without the ground, the crystal case picks up Short-wave broadcast energy. That signal is then capacitively-coupled to the crystal plates, and presto- you've got music/religion with your CW!

I haven't found it necessary to ground Y4's case.

I Designed and printed a plastic box for her radio. Still fits in the eye glass case for carrying around. Puts out a carrier. So now to make a small straight key. Hopefully one that will fit in the case along with the radio. Maybe one sided ear plug.

A most interesting design. Seems to pick up a lot of stations at once not much selectivity but better sensitivity than I would have thought.

I understand your thinking, but nothing would need to be changed.  Just add, after the CST time and date, parentheses containing the GMT time and date.   That’s what the ARRL does.  

GMT/UTC exists to reduce confusion, not add to it.  The more hams use it, the less confusing it becomes.

I'm not in charge of sending out the monthly reminder anymore.  I used to do just what you suggest and agree 100%.  And I always was confused with the computer-generated reminder, shown below:

Reminder:
4SQRP Second Sunday Sprint

When:
Sunday, 10 February 2019
7:00pm to 9:00pm

To my way of thinking, it would make more sense to say something like 7:00pm to 9:00 pm Sunday (0000Z-0200Z Monday) and change it accordingly when daylight saving time starts.  But I appreciate the fact that I don't have to worry about reminding everyone each month, because I sometimes forget myself.  I'm lucky I usually remember to tabulate the data.

I Designed and printed a plastic box for her radio.  Still fits in the eye glass case for carrying around. Puts out a carrier. So now to make a small straight key. Hopefully one that will fit in the case along with the radio. Maybe one sided ear plug.

A most interesting design. Seems to pick up a lot of stations at once not much selectivity but better sensitivity than I would have thought.
