Subject: [4SQRP] ARRL directors need to hear from you....NOW!!

The recent ARRL board minutes,
<http://www.arrl.org/files/file/2019%20Board%20of%20Directors/Final%20Minutes%20July%202019.pdf> ,
recommend corralling all the email robot stations (minute 31) to the current ACDS sub bands.
It is important for the survival of cw, and all narrow band modes operating in the RTTY/Data
amateur radio sub bands, that the ARRL directors hear from each one of you on the issue.

Winlink has charged their supporters to get “angry” and contact their directors to oppose confining
all automatic activity to the defined ACDS sub bands. If you’ve ever had one of these robots get
activated on top of your QSO’s you know what the problem is. Winlink is also opposed to the idea that
all digital amateur transmissions should be open to copy over the air.

As of now I’ve seen some rather venomous emails on other lists from the emcomm “save the world”
crowd and the blue water boating forums are lighting up in response to the “get angry” Winlink request.
At stake is loss of free email for the boaters, and the emcomm contingent believes they have a
“statutory obligation” to ply their trade. Emcomm is important but it’s a voluntary activity, not an obligation.

Please contact your ARRL division director and anyone else you can think of to counter the “get angry”
request by Winlink, unless you want the bands to turn into a Winlink email free fire zone.Those of you
that can remember what RM-11306 tried to do, Winlink everywhere, including the phone bands, know
what’s at stake if the Winlink bunch flood the directors and don’t hear from anyone else.

Full disclosure, I’m the author of FCC RM-11831 that sort of kicked off this firestorm.
Feel free to cross post this to any lists that may have an interest in defeating the
“get angry” Winlink spectrum take over. You may see this more than once.

Re: Nouveau 75 Help needed

Dave,
I received the mod kit for the Nouveau yesterday and got it installed today. The receive audio sounds great. My transmit audio is still bad though. Had a muffled sound and I have a buzzing sound on the audio when the mic is keyed. I am not a surface mount guy so can't do a lot of trouble shooting but wonder if you have any suggestions on what to check. Appreciate your comments.

Bill, the distortion you are noticing is coming from the TA7642.  I'm working on a design fix to replace that IC.  Stand by, it will be a couple days for a solution, and a couple weeks for an update kit.

Another fun Brutus outing, I posted the pictures that my wife Sharon
took on the IO group photo page.

Great food, Johnny and Pam's ribs and breakfast burritos, Ed and Karen
made brats and red cabbage, and Joe's wife made some homemade cookies,
Sharon brought a couple of salads and the watermelon. It was all good.

Not much radio wave propagation, but nothing new there.

Johnny and Pam rented the pavilion again this year, that really helps.

Do I really need a heat sink for the IRF510 
I use a 4.5 Ah sealed lead acid battery as my primary power source !
It is fully charged at about 12.8 volts
I have not tested anything to see power this transmitter is actually putting out

 The nerves just don't work. I got my extra when the speed requirement was lowered
 As I said previously, it was a birth injury. Great stuff.

When I was around 30 years old, I was living in a Western Chicago suburb and decided to go for my Extra.  That must have been around 1968.  For sending code you could bring along your bug.  Otherwise you use the FCC hand key.  I decided to take my bug and had it on the seat next to me.  As I was driving down the Expressway I needed to stop suddenly.  When I did this the bug went flying and when it hit the floor it was all out of alignment.  So I decided to not take it into the Chicago FCC office.  They first gave us our 20 wpm receiving test.  There were around five other guys taking the test too.  I past it with flying colors.  Now I had to send 20 wpm and I had to use their hand key.  The inspector told me to send 20 wpm for five minutes.  (Mind you this was on a hand key.)  I gave him five minutes.  He looked at me and thought for a moment and then said, "Give me another minute."  So I did.  (By this time my hand was getting tired.)  He said, "I think you sent 19 wpm.  Give me another minute."  So I did and he again said , "I think that was still 19."  (My hand was now really getting tired!)  I did it one more time and he then said, "OK, that was 20!" I then went on to pass the written and got my Extra.  (They NEVER smiled!"

In about January of 1954 my friend Tom Embach, WN9DXS and I, WN9DRC got permission from school to miss school and take the train from Milwaukee to Chicago to take our General exams at the Chicago FCC office in the Federal Building there.  We were I guess around 15 years old.  We made the trip and I passed the General.  Tom had to take the test one more time.  Tom is still W9DXS and lives in Mt. Home, Arkansas.  Tom and I went to Chicago alone and had no parents with us.  I don't think you could do that today.

I got my Novice license WN9DRC back in the Fall of 1953.  By Spring 1954
I was a General as W9DRC and 15 years old.  As I said earlier, Bud,
W9HIF and Joe, W9PYM were like oil and water.  Bud teased Joe, but Joe
was serious.  I came home from school one day and was now a ham for
around 6 months.  My mother was waiting for me at the door.  She said,
Lee, there is a FCC Inspector in our living room and he would like to
speak to you.  I went to the living room and this very tall man was
sitting in a chair with his coat draped over the sofa.  (I'm sure my
mother was wondering what kind of trouble I was in when the Federal
government was calling on a 15 year old boy.)  (I think his name was Mr.
Johnson.)  He introduced himself and asked to see my station which was
in our basement.  He looked my equipment over, a Hallicrafters S-38C and
a Globe Scout 40A.  Then he asked to see ALL my logs.  (Back then you
had to log in each time you threw the BIG Switch.  That was true even if
you were mobile.)  All I could think was, was there ever a time I threw
the SWITCH without logging it in???  Then he told me he was confiscating
my logs and gave me a receipt for them.  He said nothing further as to
why he took them.  (I didn't sleep well that night.)  Later on I figured
out why he took them. The FCC took Joe Collins, W9PYM,  to court for
jamming other stations, especially SSB operators with his 813 AM
transmitter modulated by a pair of 810 tubes.  The FCC figured a young
15 year old ham would most likely keep a good log and I lived a couple
miles away from Joe and probably talked to him a lot.  As it turned out
my log had Joe in it when he did not have me logged into his log.  Joe
was not allowed to operate for one year after that trial.  They used the
log books to silence Joe for a year. All this happened during the first
six months of being a ham radio operator.

If 4SQRP is considering another small run of the Hilltopper,  I'd
suggest you make it also available in a 30 meter version.  I certainly
would order one.  That way you could do a larger batch of Hilltoppers. 
(Half 20/40 meters for stragglers and 30 meters for those wanting more
of the Benson design and already Hilltopper owners.)  This is too nice a
transceiver to go away.  It's Dave Benson's best kit.
