Chas-

Nice-   a good score and a successful event!

I did an all-homebrew Field Day here.  I was set up in our currently-empty wood crib.

40M CW:  43
20M CW:  82

I went to change antennas at first light on Sunday.  An overhead support line was firmly hung up, and I destroyed the 40M antenna getting it down.   I elected not to shoot a replacement support line. Thanks to that issue, I never did get on 80M.  20M proved quite productive on Sunday, and by midday, distances were as short as 100 miles- probably a good VHF opening underway.

I also got stung while breaking the station down.  All in all- a typical Field Day.

Let's see what we can do.  We made a fairly casual effort but I suspect all but the most hard-core operators did the same.

Re: Solder filling vias Bayou Jumper

Jim, N5IB
 

You can just treat the via like soldering a component pad, but without the wire lead.

But it's really a belt-and-suspenders kind of thing.
If you're not comfortable with it, you can skip that step with no ill effects.

Re: Solder filling vias Bayou Jumper

I have the same soldering station.  My suggestion is using 63/37 solder when building the kit and for filling via, simply heat up the via while feeding a small bit of solder to it.  It doesn't take much to fill it.  63/37 flows a lot better, especially in the tiny holes.

Why just the 58 states?  What shipping method are you using?

USPS postage to AK and HI are similar.

Qrp Stuff for sale

Good afternoon 
Field day is in full swing 
and I’m shut down till another storm passes!

I have some things for sale or possible trade?
Offers are OK?
Pictures on request.
Please reply off the list.


Ten Tec 525 Argo with original power supply  mic and manual.
Not perfect but it works like it should.
I am throwing in a hyper-mite kit for it
because it doesn’t have a internal CW filter.
Asking 250.00 plus 25.00 for shipping.

3 one water kits by Diz,   20M 30m and 40M.

The 20 and 40 are built, the 30 is a new  kit in the box.
The 20 meter is in a 4 sqrp generic enclosure.
I would like 125.00 shipped for all 3 in one box.

I have another one water 20 that’s in a nice aluminum case that was designed for it.
It has a power issue, only makes about 1/4 watt. Looks like it may need a final transistor, so selling the case.
35.00 shipped.

As always they are kits and or used 
so sold as is.

Shipping is to US only, please.

Please reply direct to me at

Thanks 72
Have a safe field day!

Thanks for your interest ... it's already sold.

As to the crystals, I've not looked at the issue since 2010 ... no clue now.

The bands were fair with 40 being quite a bit better.
The signals on 80 Meters were killing my ears with qrn and trying to pick out the calls. 
It was strange, I could hear parts of calls and not get all of them.
