Re: Original Tenna Dipper -- help

Chapter Two:  One step forward and one step back
 
The PIC wasn't to blame for the silence. I put a scope on the output from the 74HC00 (pin 3) to the speaker.  Pressing and holding the program button produced a stream of 
raggedy but lovely square waves (amplitude ~2-3Vpp).  Clearly the PIC was sending Morse as it was supposed to.
 
The problem had to be a faulty speaker. I removed it and temporarily put an LED in its place. It clearly flashed Morse. Then I connected a different speaker.  It worked fine, and I thought I had the problem solved.
 
But no.  On power up, the chip sends "V2".  Oops, that's not the right ID.  According to a note that came with the kit, it indicates the PIC was one of an early batch that were 
incorrectly programmed.
 
So I'm back where I started, still needing a correctly programmed PIC, or alternatively, the code.
 
Thanks for reading.

Original Tenna Dipper -- help

bleepingbeep
 

I'm trying to resurrect an old Tenna Dipper that was offered by 4SQRP around 2004.
 
The problem is that the Morse Code annunciator is mute.   On power up it's supposed to send "TDV1", but I hear nothing.  If  I hold the program button down, it's supposed to scroll audibly through the options.  Again I hear nothing.
 
I suspect there's a problem with the PIC, a 12C508.  If anyone has a programmed PIC they could send me, I'd very happily pay for it.  On the other hand, if anyone has the code and could share it, I could program the chip myself.
 
Any help or pointers much appreciated.  Thanks and 73.

NJQRP Skeeter Hunt - two weeks out!

Larry Makoski
 

We're just two weeks away!

Sunday, August 16th is the running of the 9th Annual NJQRP Skeeter Hunt. If you haven't gotten your Skeeter Number, now is the perfect time. While a number is not needed to participate, it certainly adds to the fun! Just send an e-mail to w2ljqrp@... with your call sign, name and the state or province that you will be operating from. You will receive an e-mail back with your number for 2020. New numbers are issued each year, so don't assume the number you may have had previously is the same going forward.

All the rules for this Summer Sprint can be found at https://www.qsl.net/w2lj/

Don't forget that this year, bonus points will be given to those using home brewed antennas during the Hunt.

During this time of the pandemic, please take all necessary precautions to keep you and your loved ones safe. As has always been the case for the Skeeter Hunt, operating from your backyard with a temporary antenna and an alternative power source STILL counts as a portable operation for the multiplier. If you feel uncomfortable with going to a public park or setting - there's no need to! However, if you have a place in mind that you know will be safe with minimal or no interaction with the public, then that's fine too. In all cases, we trust you to use common sense.

Above all, have fun, stay safe and may the propagation be with us!
