Good evening Group
I will not be calling the nets tonight.

Please listen for Bert N0YJ on both 40 and 80 meters. 

Cu next week.

Bayou Jumper kit wanted

Randy Cooley
 

If anyone has an unbuilt bayou jumper kit that they would like to sell, i I'm interested in purchasing it. If you have a Soup-er-upper kit, I'm interesting in purchasing that too. You can reply back to me at Kc9utm@....
Thanks, Randy

Roland,

You were solid copy, S3, at my campsite in Sunriver, Oregon.

I was running 5 Watts into a ladderline fed 82’ doublet, configured as an inverted Vee with the center up 30 feet.

Can’t remember what antenna you were using, if you said.

However, a good solid contact.

Hope to hear you again soon.

Happy to help if I can.

Dave Ingram (SK) had the Hamfest Buddy.  Rex at QRPme Made and updated Version (with Filtering) that is a no solder kit. His Schematic is on the QRPme Site. 

Dave's CQ Article Link should be attached.  

Now, to make either of these into "Pixie" Style, simply put an Earpiece across the 10K Emitter Resister

Re: 10 to 50 milliwatt transceivers

 

Thanks guys for the feedback.  I will try some of those hints and see what transpires.  Somewhere in all of my junque I have a Wave Forms microwatt meter that measure from about 1.5 watts down to about a couple microwatts in 4 or 5 ranges, so I can see what I am putting out at different attenuation levels.

Re: 10 to 50 milliwatt transceivers

 

Gwen,

Oh, yeah!  I just ordered one of those little beasties a couple days ago on Etsy.  As for a receiver, I have a "Yeahoo" FR-101 which should fill the bill (it's the receiver only twin to the venerable FT-101 transceiver)

https://www.qsl.net/wb5ude/kc6wdk/transmitter.htmlThis one peaked does 500mw,  after you time it measure capacitance and put a fixed cap in it, a simple attenuator would knock it down to your specs.

An easy modification would be to put an attenuator between the output of the transmitter low pass filter and T/R switch. It just takes a few resistors. Don't put it in line with the antenna, though, or you'll lose some signal on receive.
