Thanks for the suggestion Gene. It was very interesting - so much so that I watched the whole thing start to finish, like a good book that couldn't be put down.

I’ve checked with Bletchley Park. As long as it fits inside your suitcase and doesn’t tip off the Gestapo, it’s bloody good show.

Yes, you can only use one on days that end in Y.

Roger that. One of my first QSOs with my first Green Panel Bayou Jumper was with a station in Normandy, France, commemorating D-Day, the 6th of June. That daylight QSO was on 7.030 MHz using a bent and shortened 80/40 Dipole in my attic. The antenna is more important than adding an additional 5 or more Watts. However, do use a tuner in between the BJ and the antenna if the antenna is not resonant. Try it and have fun. 73. Griff NE3I

Thanks, Gene.  I'll definitely check that out.  

The spy-radio genre is kind of cool, and one has to appreciate the guts it took to be in a position to use them.

Each time we increase power 4X the impact is roughly 1 S unit at the receive end. So going up to 10w is a pretty small change. Also, to drive a typical 10w RF amp you will likely need to modify the paraset to output less than 1w.  A lot of effort for little gain. 

If antenna space is scarce, evaluate if you erect something at least partly vertical. A UK ham has a small garden vertical antenna on line that looks rather nice.

Re: Tuner LEDs

Edited

I did some more testing tonight.  After getting a good green I dialed it in a little more with a meter and the tuner on out.  I switched it back to in and the red was even dimmer.  I practiced this quite a while and got pretty good at getting things right.  This posting was helpful.

The tuner really is amazing.  I tuned my resonate 20 meter wire to 40 and 80.  I did some ft8 at 1 and 5 watts with great results.

Thanks for the input.  Bryan KJ7PRS

I don't have issues with Green going full bright.  Just red going out.  I believe that was what W3BNO was experiencing as well.

Hi Bob, this should work well. Pse let us know if the green led goes to full  brightness when the red led extinguishes when matched to a dummy load.

Tnx much.

Greetings,

I did a search and did not come up with the results I was looking for on this topic.  

Was there a final solution/fix for both LED's on the tuner being at full brightness when the antenna is tuned?  I remember something to do with putting in a POT?  Was that the answer?  If so, can I get the information on that?

I enjoy the tuner and use it regularly.   Stay safe, Bryan KJ7PRS

Re: Wednesday night CW Nets

Karen, thanks for the QNI last night.  As for protocol...well, Johnny has a better grip on that than do I.  Last night I did not hear anyone calling or picking up the net so I grabbed it and ran.with it.

The 4S net is what I consider a "comfortable" net, ie no ridged format.  Usually only a handful of check-ins; those providing RST and maybe a bit more from time to time.  I see it as a place/time to practice CW, follow minimum protocol, and a  place to acknowledge regular and new check-ins.  COMFORTABLE being a key word. hi hi

If you're looking for protocol try the Tennessee State CW Net.3.562 Mhz, 1900 local M-S. It is a NTS net with protocol.   For more info on Tennessee nets:  Home (tnarrl.org)

Again thanks for the QNI last evening...and I wonder if you were using the new IC-705???
