Finished my Nouveau 75, hum on transmit audio!

John P Lloyd
 

Greetings,

I finished my Nouveau 75 last night.
The receiver works fine, with nice audio. The sensitivity seems right in line with other comments that I have seen.

The transmitter puts out 2 watts; up to 6 watts with audio into a dummy load.
Although this is a bit low, none of the components are getting warm.


One issue that I have having is that there is a low level hum on the transmitted audio.
The hum is consistent regardless of the audio gain setting.
Other than that, the transmitted audio sounds FB.


Can anyone give me some advice on troubleshooting the audio hum issue?

Also, any comments about the low wattage? (I'm thinking right now if it ain't broke don't fix it!)

Thanks and 73, John W4JPL

P.S. I made some notes about building the rig, including mounting that pesky daughter board; if anyone is interested, I'll post them.

when somebody says "40m is long", it means the signal hop is long?

Re: 40 and 80 meter net report

Charles W. Powell
 

Yes, Fernan, that is exactly what it means. Depending on the time of day and the ionospheric conditions, 40 meters can be short - conducive to hops ranging from a few miles to a few hundred miles, or thousands of miles. So when 40 meters is “long” you are more likely to have contacts of 1000 miles (1600 km) or more and less likely to be able to work a station 100-200 miles (160 to 320 km) away. 80 meters can behave exactly the same way. One night I was hearing absolutely nothing on 80 meters, except one station mid-band. It was Western Sahara, and I worked him with 5 watts on 80m. That is unusual, but it certainly happens.

It's possible.  Ask us again when the new kits are available, hopefully around the end of the year.

Re: Nouveau-75

I have a Nouveau-75 that is yet unbuilt.  I purchased it a couple weeks ago.  I haven't even unsealed the box yet.

Would it be possible for me to purchase the newly designed board and utilize the parts from my existing kit so I can avoid the whole daughterboard thing?

Thanks in advance!

73, Tony K4QE

QRP Magazines and CDs for sale

David Wilcox
 

I am cleaning the shack and have some QRP magazines and CDs that must go...…..

I have:

1) Low Power Communications, Volume One QRP Basics by Rich Arland,  K7HYA.  This is his first edition published by Tiare Publications 

2) Atlanticon 2000 Prodeedings March 24-25, 2000  (this is like the FDIM Proceedings, spiral bound)

3) Three  Cds of the American QRP Homebrewer Journal, Volumes 5, 6 and 7 from 2005 and 2006 (see photos) filled with articles, utilities, videos and projects.

4) Six volumes of QRP Homebrewer by the NJ QRP Club (see photos for issues and years).

I would like $25.00 to cover mailing and handling costs.  I think that is fair but if you want to dicker with me that 's OK.  I just don't want to trash this treasure trove of QRP information from the first half of the 2000's.  The cost of the mid size USPS Priority Mail box is $14.00 and change now.  Please contact me with any questions. I prefer PayPal but am flexible.

Please contact me at Djwilcox01 @ gmail dot com if interested.

Thank you.

I wouldn’t hold my breath on them being back in stock by then.

It takes a couple of weeks to get the boards after Dave makes the changes?

Sorry about the delay.
