Re: Problem with Tuner Kit but no help here

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.

Subject: [4SQRP] Problem with Tuner Kit but no help here

Would like to make this kit work. RED LED stays lit during tuning process and never goes out even with 1:1 load such as dummy load.

Can anyone offer some help here?

Hi John,
Got it. I floundered around last night until I found the site with all the kits. It took a little while but being 73 has some advantages in that I’ve got plenty of time to flounder.LOL

One way is to click on the groups.io link in most group emails, find the 4Sgroup and then lookup the Subgroups on the left panel.

Hi Chuck,
I'm also new to these groups. Is there a link to these two kits ( Bayou Jumper and the Souper Upper Accessory). I'm assuming the Souper Upper Accessory is relative to the N75 kit which I built and enjoy. Any help greatly appreciated.

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,

John

Soup'er Up'er kit arrived today.....................

Chuck Milton
 

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.

The winner for May is Carl, WB0CFF, with 19 QSO points. Congratulations,
Carl.  Carl is also the current leader in the annual contest, with 80

points.  And, for the annual contest, Glenn, N4MJ, is in second place
with 47 points, followed by Chas, W2SH, with 44 points.

Carl will receive his May certificate shortly.  He will also receive a
corrected April certificate.  I made a typo last month, listing his call
on the certificate as WB0CCC (for a reason unknown to me).

Until June, 72's to all!
