GM Kelly,
This may have already been answered, yes you are a member, you've signed up for the list you are therefore a member. There are no "meetings" as such, just a monthly get together in Seneca (MO) for lunch and a gab session. So yessir, you is a member!

Re: QRPometer mod

Johnny AC0BQ
 

Hello Tom
Good idea. 
I was one of the prototype builders and I made a plate from some old plexiglass I had and used longer screws with spacers to keep mine from shorting out!
Worked well, sounds like your solution was easier!!

I just recently built my QRPometer bought at Ozarkcon (shows how slow I
am to get around to building things) and put it together in a couple of
nights. Nice little kit but the thing I didn't like was having the
solder contacts on the bottom board exposed. The connections across the
battery terminals are also exposed, so if you accidentally lay your
QRPometer across a screwdriver or some other metal tool, you run the
risk of shorting it out. Plus I don't like the idea of getting all that
lead solder on my hands while using or carrying the QRPometer.

So I bought a cheap, thin black plastic folder at Wally World to match
the black PC board, set the QRPometer on top of it, and then cut out a
piece with a box cutter to fit the back of the meter. I then cut four
tiny X's for the screws, then put the thin piece of plastic on the back
and secured it with the four nuts. I then attached the four rubber feet
that came with the kit to the plastic. Now I don't have to worry about
laying my QRPometer on something metal and shorting anything out or
having to wash the lead off my hands after using it.

Re: Bart Your 80-meter dipole looks NVISish

Phil Anderson
 

Bart,

Oh forgot to mention, if you increased the height of your apex a few feet to roughly
0.66 of a quarter wavelength  the only thing that would change is a VSWR of 2.9 to 1.9.
Not worth climbing up for that. Contragulations.

Bart Your 80-meter dipole looks NVISish

Phil Anderson
 

Hi Bart,

I plugged in the numbers for your 80-meter dipole (using EZNEC)
for an apex at ~30 feet, freq of 3.550 and sloping legs of 63 feet
to 15 foot posts, an inverted V shape. Your (this) patttern
looks classic NVIS. VSWR was about 2.8 and the resistive
portion of the impedance was 23 ohms. I wouldn't change
a thing. Assume you use a match at your rig?

My 40-m NVIS dipole has the same classic NVIS azmuth pattern
but has 32 ohms resistance at the apex coaxial feed. Not much
difference, just a VSWR of about 1.9 to 2.1. I use the match inside
the FT450D to get the VSWR down to 1 to 1.

Sorry I couldn't get in on the Sprint with ol' #52 Cyclone40 but had to work all day....and of course, I'll be out of town next weekend for the SSS. Oh, well...next month may be more accommodating.
