Will do Jim!
I will be split and rock back and forth on RX after the first rush slows down.

We’re having lots of rain but I don’t think the lighting will be too bad?

Cu all there soon.

Re: Problem with Tuner Kit but no help here

GM Bryan and John,
You might try a resistor as the load rather than an antenna. Some antennas are difficult to match, but a dummy load resistor of 50 to 200 ohms or so should match up nicely.

GL and let us know how it goes,  WA0ITP

My experience having finished this kit a week or so back.  

The tuning seems quite finicky (or precise).  The initial dimming of the red LED can be very slight and easy to miss. Of course, working between the two capacitors then brings the brightness way down. 

I was using dits to tune with and had trouble finding the dips. I Switched to a solid tuning tone and find that it’s much easier.  No blown finals so far, which I would not think to be a problem with the tuner’s 2:1 SWR limiting.

I found that the red light is considerably brighter then the green in day light.  When I got everything perfect on the match and looked at them in the dark, they were fine.  So I just live with it.  Tuner works great!

Here is what I found:

THe following was reported by W3BNO.  I plan to do this, but have not gotten around to trying yet.

" I solved by connecting a 5k trim pot across the red led. With the tuner feeding a 50 ohm dummy load and adjusted for maximum dimming of the red led, I adjusted the pot until the led just extinguished."

Good luck and let us know if it works for you.

Search the online group.  If I can find the link I may post it later.  This does not seem totally uncommon.  The soultion a few have used (I have not gotten around to trying it myself) is to put a small trimmer pot in there and "calibrate" it to your dummy load.

Pete,

If you followed the manual exactly you probably have the LED colors reversed....... see the addendum.  The schematic is correct but the Assembly Manual text has them reversed.

If they are correctly placed the inspect the diode in the Red LED area and check the 2N3906 at Q2 for correct wiring.

Other possible issues with the Pittsburgh style that I have had is bad solder joints.  Not so many components to check out.

GL,

I'm new to these two groups but looking forward to soon receiving a Bayou Jumper and today received the Souper Upper Accessory to go along with the x-cvr kit.

My hats off to those who kitted the SU'er.  What a nice job.  It will make the build so much easier.

Thanks to those who put this kit together.  The attention to detail is first class.

Looking forward to the BJ and then the build of both units.

Exciting results you guys.

We are planning a August cross country trip (NJ to CA) and will be crusinn' through Ozark land.
Sure hope to make one or two nets along the way running my NS-40 portable.
