Seeing those FT-243 crystals plugged in to the little transceiver reminds me of the ones I ordered from the same company as those two crystals back in the 1990s:

CW Crystals
Marshfield MO

Got some from them for the 30 meter band and converted a Drake 2NT 20 meter function to 30 meters.  Worked like a charm. Also was easy to "reverse" the process if one wanted to keep it "original".

Pretty well gone are the days of ordering FT-243 crystals in general and gone is CW Crystals.  Kinda' sad if you lived it, loved it and then dwell on it too long.

So, that being the case, when's the 17 meter or 15 meter or 12 meter or 10 meter Cricket coming out?

I think combing some decent sunspots, good geomagnetic field conditions and one of those above could prove to be a real hoot.   I hear tell the former are on the way.

I have one in pretty good shape. Not sure what band it's on.
Shoot me an email if you've not found one yet.

Re: Propagation

John - KK4ITX
 

When I want to check an antenna’s ability I use WSPR, this tells me if the antenna is working.  When I want to see how the propagation is I Call CQ.  During this solar minimum I can not remember not making a QSO when I made the effort.

For at least 5 months of the year I am battery operating from a beach, park or hilltop and back at my Winter Digs I mostly run QRP from a piece of wire. Strange as it sounds but so many look at predictions (weather, propagation and others) and change their plans or don’t even try.

Because they don’t even try it has been SUPER QUIET which means my puny portable 5w can be heard easier, maybe not 1000/mpw but it’s a QSO.

Too many people listening..... Call CQ, it gets reported on RBN others see it and get on the air.

Hope to work you,

72,

John

So did I.  I've used VOACAP befor , but find it cumbersome . Several years ago I used and liked a simpler one, but I can't remember the name.

Tried QNI on 40 mtrs but the band was unforgiving. 80 mtrs was much better with propagation running NW to SE from the Eastern Missouri area. Heard Terry - WA0ITP and KK4ITX better than anyone.

That's ok, running 5 watts can still make contacts!

So I built the first one, light blue, and have the second one ready to build, green.  

It would be cool to have a third one.
