Hi Terry,

if have the energy!

Unc Phil.


Sprint

WA0ITP
 

I'm looking forward to the Sprint tonight (7-9PM). I plan to operate mostly on
40M hanging around, but not calling CQ on the 7122 watering hole, and also will
dip down to 7030 to 7040. Hope to pick up some PigRigs there, will also give
3564 a try.

VOACAP show's propagation in the Four State area to be very good tonight, both
80M and 40M look promising http://www.voacap.com/predictions/522c9472174b2/
Also we're very close to the Autumnal Equinox and can expect propagation to pick
up a bit.

I'll use Walter's suggested exchange "599 nr 38" and will alternate between
calling "CQ 4S" and S&P.

Next month I intend to offer a personal prize for the most contacts made with a
Cyclone, so get your's up and running. Consult the Cyclone Yahoo group or send
an email directly to me if you have any questions on your build, let's get some
Cylones on the air.

Anyone else working the Sprint tonight?

It comes with 500 Hz CW filter, 1.8 kHz SSB filter, DRU-2 digital recording unit, hand mike, and MC-60A desk mike. It has the newer DDS chips and caps on CAR board were recently replaced by Clif at Aavid. Am asking $800.

Re: WA0MWW Shop Sale and Brutus Tailgate

 

I wonder how his HW-5400 works. The one I had in the '80s was deaf as a
stump above 20m, and not even so good there. It was a happy day when it
arrived and I could start building it and it was a happy day when it
left after trading it for an Explorer 14 yagi. The yagi was certainly
not deaf!

72, de Nate >>

P.S. No, I am not interested in buying it!

WA0MWW Shop Sale and Brutus Tailgate

WA0ITP
 

I've posted a list of WA0MWW's sale items on my web site
http://www.wa0itp.com/rons%20stuff.pdf Ron was a FB hombrewer and a Heathkit
fan, and the list reflects that.

If you are going to Brutus and see something you'd like to buy, or want to see
it close up, pse let me know and I'll try bring it along next weekend, depending
on the available room in the old Tahoe.

After Brutus, sales will be opened to all Four Staters, then to the local club,
and finally to the QRP-L list.

Anyone interested in older QRP radios? I have an Argosy and an FT-7
that I could bring along if there is interest. Sorry Terry - they do
weigh more than a pound.

Will bring some no longer used bits and pieces like QRPometer,
tennadipper and MTR.

I find that I use my WM-2 more than the QRPometer and I now have the
*deluxe* tennadipper.

The MTR is a neat little radio but I have since acquired a KX-1 and find
that I prefer a knob to the buttons for tuning.

Just called in for reservations - no rv spots but they will take me as
primitive.
Doesn't that have a nice ring to it? "I'm a primitive..." :-P

Actually I'm a "Ham in Egg". I'll bet Terry knows what that means.

Looking forward to the weekend,

Re: Brutus Tailgate

Phil Anderson
 



Shack Closings.

There are so many reasons why some hang it up and some keep keying. Health is a driving factor,
and with the economy we now have an added factor. New rigs are expensive and monthly drug pills for
some of us can dig into it too.

One of my old buddies passed on two years ago, we go back to high school, and I had to spend one of my
days in Kauai Hawaii early this year cleaning out this rigs and equipment in the condo. I was happy to do it for his
spouse. Most of the stuff went back 20 years; he had not been active in the last ten.

I do believe that friendships last longer than shacks so it is good of you Terry to give him a hand.
