MFJ Cub

Charles W. Powell
 

I have a 20 meter MFJ cub that I would part with for any reasonable offer.   If anyone is interested, e-mail me at nk8o at arrl.net.  I'm working on clearing out some of the excess stock from the shack!  (I'll never catch up...)  And I'm going to Ozarkcon, so I could leave it with someone there or mail it out.

72,

Chas - NK8O

Heard in Portsmouth, NH on my 9 foot vertical (no one heard me):  

K3NLT 439
WA9PVP 569.

Lots of muddy tones otherwise.

Hi John,

I heard you at RST 329 but there was a lot of QSB.

Yes, Ozarkcon is a lot of fun - I really look forward to it.

Maybe you can try to work the K0N station they set up at the hotel.

They usually stay in the vicinity of 7030 or 7040 kHz.

Weird tonight, I could hear KV and then nada next time maybe the CQ & a 6...... once I was sure it was you I put out my Call and only got a partial reply on my end.  I was receiving you below 7.122, not normal.
 
Have a great time at Ozarkcon, maybe next year....... it sounds like a fantastic time with a fun bunch.  I'd fit right in with the Dummy Load Group !

If you need a parachute and don't have one you probably won't need one again.

Cricket 80a for sale

Martin <huyettmeh@...>
 

I’ve got a Cricket 80a with marking, © 2017 that I bought a couple years. It’s all built up. Transmitter works. Receiver works for about a second after power or key up and then fades. It is probably something simple but for the life of me I can’t find it.

 

Everything is there except the key arm which I stole to use in another setting. The one with the key jack on it is mounted.

 

If someone is interested in it make me a modest offer and I’ll likely accept.

 

Thanks,

Martin

My HT20 to a very simple "all band mobile vertical" (mounted in a Xmas tree holder) placed on the hood of my Isuzu SUV. 

Did I catch "lightening on a bottle "with this QSO and outstanding report?

Johnny AD0BQ,

Thanks for the comeback. Hope we QSO.

We are in a sunspot nadir like I've never experienced.
I've been active long enough to remember some real halcyon DX days.

QRP rig FS

Paul Goemans
 

Hello all,
  I am thinning the herd here. Selling my fairly rare S & S Engineering TAC 1 (40 meter) monoband transceiver. A groundbreaking QRP rig design in 1995; a PLL synthesized rotary encoder knob tuned transceiver with an LCD display, rugged aluminum case. I connected it up this morning, heard a CQ, one call, a QSO! Puts out about 4 watts on a gel cell battery, probably 5 watts with a 13.8 volt power supply. Complete with original construction/ operation manual and (optional) internal iambic keyer board. I am not the builder. So there are a straight key jack and an iambic key jack on the back panel! Keyer control pushbutton also on the back panel. Tune knob is used to change keyer settings. Tuning rates 1 kHz and 100 Hz, RIT, narrow AF CW filter. Shipped to US address for $160 PayPal or money order. A fun rig!

Been reading the (blog) mail.

W6BOW
 

Dear All,

Been reading the (blog) mail. 
Most interesting. Most helpful..

Enjoyed FB "Hilltopper 20" QSOs over the weekend with ...

W3NP    WV
W3PP    PA
AA0AI    IA

My regular antenna is an all band doublet, window wire fed, oriented East/West.

Getting ready for portable operation I did QSO with AA0AI(IA) using a mobile antenna and counterpoise.
He was calling "CQ 'AS'" but was kind enough to come back to my "CA" call.
I won't do this again. Got to live with myself.


Best of luck with Ozarkcon QRP Convention April 5-6, 2019 in Branson, MO.
Will follow at a distance this year with hopes of attending next time around.

Glad I found you guys and gals,
