Hello Dave
If you search for NM0S  dave Cripe’s website.

He sells the 80 meter Crickets.
When we retire the kits they go back to the designer.

Here is the link

Is there any interest in reissuing the Cricket 80 kit?  Our club is looking for a kit so we could start an 80 m CW net and the other Crickets are too high frequency for a local net.  

How many sales would be necessary to reintroduce that kit?

Re: sidetone

Hi Ted-

Nice job all around! From the sound of it, you were doing a Parks on the Air activation.

With the cooler weather, I've moved my portable operations into the truck.  I use a small tabletop on the passenger side and operate from the driver's seat. It's pretty comfortable- more so than a table and chair outside.  My last outing on Friday yielded 82 CW contacts in an hour- what a blast!  The picture shows my truck backed up to a dead pine- the antenna support at a trailhead parking area. The temperature was 50F but I was perfectly comfortable without running the truck for heat. 

I was using an IC-706MkIIg at 60 watts (don't tell anyone <g>). Power was supplied from a 12 AH Lithium Phosphate battery- it's good for several hours of operation at that power level.  The antenna was a 20M EFHW. I favor that in the field because only one support is needed.

For anyone 'on the fence' about doing this, give it a try!   It's a great way to hone your Field operating skills and a chance to experience the receiving end of a pileup.

73- Dave, K1SWL

Well, everybody's day is different.  I logged a mess of contacts on 5 watts CW today, from 40 to 18 metres, I haven't digested it though it's more than I've logged yet for an activation. 

A friend, KB3ZDM, showed up and I went QRO to a whole 20 watts so she could do SSB.  Pileup on 20 meters for over an hour, around 19:00z. 

Not every day is like this with actual human conversations between Washington State to Puerto Rico, Maine to SoCal, and RBN hits in eastern Europe, from the middle eastern seaboard  I'm simply saying one can have a ball with stuff that one can carry with one arm bag or a briefcase, and a hand for a tower & tripod extra.  No doubt as the days get colder, I'll hide in the car and maybe add 120 watts to it.

Me too (regarding higher power).  On park activations you want a lot of folks to hear you.  I have done a number of activations with 5 watts, but with conditions the way they are right now it's pretty frustrating to get more than a few contacts with QRP.  POTA only requires 10 contacts for a successful activation, but WWFF requires 44.

Ted-

I'm typically sticking to 20M and using an EFHW antenna.  A buddy has had only modest success on 40M.  I think a good part of the difference is his 'casual' antenna and comparatively low power.

By contrast, I feel compelled to give my 12AH LiFePO4 battery a good workout on POTA activations. Don't tell anyone <g> but I'm running higher power on those adventures.  I want to be heard!  I'm sticking strictly to 5W from the home location, though.

Hi, Dave.

That's just it, right there - with spotting, they will flock.  I've taken to the upper end (7109, 7121) because of the relative lack of QRM.... save for the occasional Winlink signal bleating nearby. It seldom lasts long enough to be a real problem. 

I'm sold on activating with this rig!  My regular go-to has been the Hilltopper-20, mainly because I keep that and sundries in a shoulder pack in the car (just like highway flares and MRE's).  About everybody activates on 20, though, and 40 seems to be attractive enough to seekers, by all accounts. 

Great job on the radio, again.  I love it to pieces.

Here's a pic of an assembled "W1FB" sidetone generator.

I built it Manhattan style. It works great. I highly recommend this build to anyone interested in trying their hand at home brewing.

Should be easy to feed it into the audio chain of any radio. Just connect the output to the wiper of the AF pot.

Ive built alot of his circuits in the past. Still have his book "qrp notebook" love the sections of homebrewing your own variable capacitors. It might be in another book but i thought its in this one. He was in my book one of the most innovative designers of our time.

Might be of use in a radio without a sidetone.
