Would have been helpful to have the Group code on the Ozarkcon page which would have made booking on-line a snap. See y'all in April.

Re: N75 Subgroup Issue

OOPS. It seems to have disappeared. Groups.io had a “possible” database corruption issue which may be the cause or maybe the “Ghost in the Machine” or ????  I have created the group again. I apologize for those who signed up and need to do it again. Please reload any uploaded files to the Files Section.

Dear 4SQRP.,

    Also...is there a list of the Homebrew Categories?

Unless the programming has changed, anyone paying via PayPal is added to the attendee list immediately upon completion of the Paypal Transaction.

Anyone mailing in a payment for registration will not be indicated in the attendee list until Tom receives the payment in the mail and logs it into the database.

Bayou Jumper and Su'per Up'er - more questions!

wa2cky
 

I have completed installation of the Su'per Up'er (SU) on a original version (white panel) Bayou Jumper (BJ) and I am now in the 'bring it to life' phase.  I have two problems to discuss and 2 questions to go along with those.

P1: I do not appear to have dc continuity between the +12VDC input point and the rotary switch (SW1d). I do have continuity from the DC input jack to the connections on Q6(drain) so something between those two is defunct (there is a via which takes the +12V from one side to the other and I am eyeing it). Today I will once again remove the front panel and do some more sleuthing. A friend commented that the manual mentions making sure the certain via's need looking at and, yes, that is in one of the manuals and I will do so.

Q1: anyone else have a problem in this area??

P2: I noticed that the DC connector plug/jack has a pretty darned flaky/loose connection. The owner of the BJ mentioned he also noted that had been a problem for him also.  I do remember those type of connectors having several physical variations and I will be looking into that today. 

Q2: anyone else have this problem (i.e. loose plug/jack on the 12VDC input)?

All help appreciated!  Bob Groh, WA2CKY

Re: Cricket 40 ac hum

KD5ALD
 

What I think about tuned antennas and hum :)
I have a problem at this point differentiating scientific facts from personal thoughts that may not be completely true !
Also I often lack the willpower to study to find the truth !
Nevertheless :)
I in my heart truly believe
A tuned wire of at least 1/2 wave length of the desired frequency has definite advantages
I feel anything less than 1/2 wave length is compromised as to radiation efficiency
A wire tuned to a specific frequency seems to work somewhat as a band pass filter ! I have spent hours listening with unturned wires and listening with tuned wires and I prefer tuned wire !
I have absolutely zero experience with end fed wires
I am a 1/2 wave dipole and balanced feed line type of fella !
Rather proven science or not :) My heart tells me this is so :)
As far as hum 
I run battery power and earbuds with my cricket !
I use a short direct to the ground , ground !
Beware of most everything that is powered by AC
Try unplugging everything you can think of !
I have at times been bothered by noise
Also I will say
Most times the noise was self induced by me the operator :)

Thanks to all who checked in tonight
Tonight's topic: You have 50 ft of twin lead and have to make a multi band HF antenna what design would you use: Most solutions where for an end fed long wire, one Idea from Ed for a Delta Loop, and Charles had several suggestions, one of my favorite portable antennas is 50 feet of twin with 25 feet trimmed away on one side,connected to a 4 to 1 unun, the 50 ft wire is the radiator and the 25 ft piece is the counter poise, a j pole of sorts, works great and only one support required.
