Yes, Pittsburg is 22 miles away and has lots of good motels and restaurants.

Sounds good to me Terry.  Wife will be retired by that time so we ought to be able to make it.  Don't have any camping equipment so are there any fairly decent motels in the area?

Terry,

Lots of QRN here in Ohio as we had a cold front passed through here earlier today.  

After a ton of rain, we should be moving into a dryer period for at least the next week.

FOX: SEASON OPENS

Dale Putnam
 

The summer fox hunt season begins tomorrow, Thursday evening at 8 pm CDT
(0100z Friday, August 12). Your foxes are Paul, K4FB in FL, and Todd, N9NE
in WI. The hunt lasts for 90 minutes and takes place between 14.050 and
14.070. Both foxes will operate split (usually up 1 KHz or so) but may go
to simplex later in the hunt. A description of the hunt and its rules are
found on the QRP Fox Hunt website at http://www.qrpfoxhunt.org/

You are cordially invited to join in on the fun!


Have a great day,

Re: Google + Hangouts

Hajo Dezelski <dl1sdz@...>
 

This is really a great tool. I and 4 - 6 other hams have been using this system during the construction of the Solf.
One was having a problem and pointed the camera to his board while the soldering iron was getting warm.
Another had the problem solved and pointed with a camera to the working Solf and to the measuring points and later to the scope to show the results.
Another shared his desktop with the critical circuit plans and interpreted it.
One was making jokes.
The others gave good advices.
The guy with the problem had to tear his rig apart, desolder components, resolder them, show the new measurements ....
But that was the way we got all rigs working. Without Hangouts it would have been sometimes impossible to solve the complex problems.

Re: Anybody using a 4slink with a KX3?

Jim Sheldon
 

Steve, and others, I was a bit unclear in my reply.  It's the 4SLink that needs to be modified, not the KX3.  Just wanted to make sure you understood that.  The KX3's mic jack was designed properly with mic audio on the tip and PTT on the ring like most other rigs that use the 1/8" stereo mic plug.

You have 2 choices, you can either make up a cable with the radio end having audio on the tip and PTT on the ring or you can do as I did and modify the 4SLink.  I cut the traces going to tip and ring on the MIC/PTT Jack and using some 22 gauge wire, re-wired the jack so that audio now appears on the tip contact and PTT appears on the ring contact.  Now, I can use the Elecraft cable kit option and the 4SLink really works great between my laptop and the KX3.
 
If you go the modified cable route, be sure and mark that cable so you don't accidentally get it mixed up with a normal one.  Having the tip and ring interchanged between ends might create a problem in some other situation.

Re: Anybody using a 4slink with a KX3?

Hi Steve,
Yup, I'm using one.  It's straightforward except for one glitch.  The MIC/PTT jack is wired backwards for the KX3 so you can't use a commercially wired stereo cable between the 4SLink and the KX3.  In the 4SLink, on that jack, audio is on the ring and PTT is on the tip.  I don't know why it was designed that way as most rigs use the convention of microphone audio on the tip and PTT on the ring with, of course, ground being on the shell.
 
You have 2 choices, you can either make up a cable with the radio end having audio on the tip and PTT on the ring or you can do as I did and modify the 4SLink.  I cut the traces going to tip and ring on the MIC/PTT Jack and using some 22 gauge wire, re-wired the jack so that audio now appears on the tip contact and PTT appears on the ring contact.  Now, I can use the Elecraft cable kit option and the 4SLink really works great between my laptop and the KX3.
 
If you go the modified cable route, be sure and mark that cable so you don't accidentally get it mixed up with a normal one.  Having the tip and ring interchanged between ends might create a problem in some other situation.
