QRP Items for sale

Johnny AC0BQ
 

Ge group
While these aren't our kits they are qrp items and more related to test tools than radios.

So here goes.

I have a dds 60 kit unbuilt from AMqrp via Midnight design solutions. It is a dds signal generator.
I would take $50.00 for it shipped to the US.
These are pricey on their web page.

I also have a Scalar Net Analyzer kit that Includes a dds 60 module.
It has an upgrade kit that was sent to me, and everything to build it including the enclosure.
It's still in packages.
I would take 125.00 for this plus 7.50 shipping.

This was also sold by midnight design.
Their web page says they are sold out.

I'm open to reasonable offers and or trades.
What have you got???? keys, small rigs, unfinished kits?
Drop me a private reply if interested.
Thanks 72
Johnny AC0BQ

WB0CFF is the overall leader with 142 points, followed by Glenn, N4MJ,

1st place certificate for September will be emailed to him shortly.

The big news for the month is we had two new participants, Andy (W4NLT)

Re: RF Exposure Evaluation

Jim,

Thanks for the fine work!  You ought to publish this in QST, with a little subtle advertising about the Jumper and why every ham needs one.  I have been doing my part, managed to sell two ops on how much fun the Jumper is, and what great fun it is to build and operate.

Curt, KB5JO

Had some "nothing to do" time today so decided to spend a few quality minutes performing my "due diligence" with the ARRL's RF Exposure Caculator at
http://arrl.org/rf-exposure-calculator

I ran four cases, for all bands from 160m to 6m, making the most conservative of assumptions - zero feedline loss, theoretical dipole gain of 2.14 dBi, calculating with ground reflections, and rounding all distances (for the uncontrolled environment up to the nearest tenth of a foot

Case 1:  100 W out, "brick on the IC-706 key" that is 100% Tx, 24/7
Case 2   100 W out, normal CW , that is 40% Tx  duty,  2 min Tx then 2 min Rx
Case 3:  15 W out,  "brick on the K2 key", that is 100% Tx, 24/7
Case 4:   a Bayou Jumper during normal Secret Agent ops

The results are shown on the attached graph.

Thanks Jim
Yes the Jumper is hardly visible!
You could do a lot of “secret” work with that rate of exposure.

Hi Johnny,

That's right - 13.5 feet.
Though for a situation that would never not in real life.

Throw in the more realistic duty cycle, feedline loss, cloud warming antenna pattern, etc, and it's much less.
But I like the worst case test, since I know my operation never even approaches that.

BTW - ain't the BJ cute, hiding down there in the grass?
