The launch took place at 9AM CST as planned. The CW beacon is working well I
have it at abt 569 on 14.323.5. The GPS isnt working at this point in the
flight, so there is no tracking available. If it gains a lock tracking will be
availabe on this web page

Tks to everybody who replied both on and off list to my T/R Switching query. Overall, it looks like the Magic Box is the way to go. I can experiment and expand from there.

Subject: T/R Switching

As a recent joiner of 4SQRP, I'm looking forward to getting back into building my own stuff. The NS-40 seems to be a popular and well designed rig, and my plan is to use my FT-857 for the RX side. Otherwise, the 857 is my day-to-day rig, and I have to protect it. (For QRP use, I drop the drive down and measure the output on an external wattmeter.)
 
So here's a newbie query from an old time ham (me!) who should know the answer but doesn't: What is everyone else who uses separate TX and RX units doing to mute their RXs when the TXs are doing their thing? A rule of thumb was given me a few days ago that there must be at least 40 dB attenuation to protect the RX front end, but that's also going to depend on what the TX power is to start with.
 
My old Hallicrafters RXs could handle a bit of a pop at QRP levels when I did manual switching. I'm a bit leery however about subjecting the "newfangled" 857 to similar treatment. I never had a Dow key which would've done nicely for the boat anchors, but - assuming I could put my hands on one - would a Dow key with its mechanical relay have fast enough response time to protect the 857's front end?
 
What other alternatives are currently in play?
 
Tks/73,
 
Jim, ND9M / VQ9JC

Re: Meeting Saturday

Dave,
  I've had a little trouble with my truck.  I replaced what the shop said was a bad battery, but it seems to be still running a little rough.  I think we'll stay near town until I'm convinced that's all it was. 
  We'll try to make it next month.  Say hello to everyone for us!
  Hope to see you soon.

Hello folks:

This is your reminder that the February 4SQRP luncheon gathering will be
this upcoming Saturday, the 16th, at the Country Kitchen in downtown
Seneca, MO. Lunch will be at 11:00 AM.

There are directions to the Country Kitchen on the 4SQRP web site at:

The WX forecast says that Saturday will be cooler, but no rain or snow
predicted. The yellow daffodils are blooming at my QTH so spring is
getting close!

This message is being sent to both the old and new email reflectors, so
you may get two copies of the message.

Wayne,

Sorry your messages to this group got delayed. It appears the spam detector used by Yahoo decided your messages were spam and they got trapped until I found them this morning. Even then, I think their system had some hiccups when I approved them. Hopefully in the future we won't have these problems.

Thank you Chuck. I've made the change and this email message checks it out. For my email application, "Reply" puts in the group address, "Reply All" puts in both group address and a cc: to the sender I'm replying to. One more thing accomplished.

Overall, same setting that we've had for years. It appears Yahoo Groups
is slightly different action. We've had debates before on this and the
consensus has been (on more than one list I've run) to have the reply
default to the group. If anyone who knows Y G better than I knows of a
