Re: Stange text in rtf (html) messages

Terry,

My email seems just fine. I am using Chrome browser and I assume the mail service that comes with it. I do use "gmail" on my laptop to keep that email sort of separate from the email I get on this machine. Both machines are Macs which might also make a difference.

I do belong to a "bunch" of yahoo groups but since my recent operation find that I spend much less time at the computer so I couldn't make a reliable evaluation of home messages show up on any but this one.

Hope you find your problem, it's small problems like this one that make these computers a pain in the neck.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at Brutus.

If the message is in rtf format, I see a large first line and vy small

This occurs with all Yahoo groups, not just Four State.

Hi Paul,


I'm on the builder web page.  I just updated my "light" from yellow to green.


Assuming you are referring to the Hy-Per-Mite filter?  I've built one for myself, and another for a club member.


If you don't already have a builder, feel free to contact me.  Use the e-mail link on the 4sqrp.com kit builder page for K0EET.

Re: slow email

Phil Anderson
 

I just figured it out! W0XI here.

The government agent receives the first email and turns to his instructional book:

if 1 then proceed to page x,
if 2 then proceed to page y,
if 3 then come back in 30 minutes
if you can't read, then pass it to your neighbor,
if 5 and not 1 or 2 then proceed to step 23 in volume 111
hit 7 to dial the operator............
if none of the above works go to the FYI pages.

Sound familiar when calling any governmental agency or large business?

We're a sucker born on every call ! !@#$

On shack maintenance

Wayne Dillon
 

Good morning all,
Well this weekend I got to do some long overdue maintenance in the shack. The ASTU was acting up, tuning was a little hesitant and the positions had changed from what they normally are so I figured I'd better knuckle down and have a look see.
First off I checked all the patch leads, almost always suspect when things are not what they are supposed to be . They checked out but when I checked the link on the back of the ASTU (it's an MFJ 949) the one that puts the BalUn in play for balanced wire feeders I discovered my "hesitant" connection. Origionally I had placed a "temporary" link there pending a "proper" one made from crimp terminals. Well the "temporary" one was intermittent. I made up a permanent link  and all is now fine, ASTU settings are where they should be and it tunes 160 again. Many of you know that I run a 176 ft doublet at around 40' fed with 300R ribbon. the way the link was performing i had effectively one side of the feeder and one half of the doublet acting as my antenna. Oh well, we live and learn. Secondly, I decided to check the output to make sure that I was in fact actually putting out 5 watts. I set up the power out using the meter in the ASTU (switched to Dummy Load) at 5 watts. Then, out with the QrpOmeter... hmmm. I was only putting a little less than a watt into the antenna! OK, set the output for 5 watts, just for grins I checked it against an OHR WM2 - same reading - and reconnected the MFJ. Boy oh boy was it off, I mean WAY OFF. So, this weeks net will be conducted with a "Full Gallon (QRP)", and an antenna properly connected. Just goes to show what shows up when you get complacent about stuff.
See y'all o Wednesday evening,
72/3 es God Bless de Wayne - KC0PMH

P.S. Anyone know how to do the meter alignment on the MFJ??
