Sounds interesting to me Paul.
Anyone one else in the group interested?

Re: keying circuit

Hi David and the group.
Just curious, why not tie all the grounds together? am I missing something here? With my "multi switching" box all the grounds are tied together and I've had no problems...

I agree, you should not tie all the grounds together, it can cause problems... been there done that.

You can get a 3 pole rotary switch from Jameco and that will allow you to switch 3 circuits.  You'd want to do this if you are using an iambic key.

You will need to mount any jacks used on a non-metalic surface to keep the ground circuits isolated from each other.

I don't see much of a problem with just switching the output

Just curious if I need to protect the circuit in some fashion.

Kelly, Randy, and all:
 
This is my fault, I made up the Second Sunday Sprint note that Dave uploaded to the web site, and thought that it would be good to have a descriptive email address for it, as we do for the 4x4 sprint. 
 
I suggest that everyone send their scores directly to Walter at spike55@...

I've now sent 4 emails about my 4x4 score not being included in the list. I sent the original email per instructions to this email address from my kmacker@... address on 10/5/2013 at 8:22 PM EDT a few minutes later I sent my comments to the Yahoo Group. But my score was not in the list that was posted to the group later. I've sent 3 more emails and do not seem to be getting through to anyone. I screenshot of the original email I sent is included so you can see it was sent, there was no error or bounce message received. I am a sys admin on a 4000 user secure email system for missionaries that covers the globe. I am used to email issues but this one traces thru without problems via the test tools that I have available to check routing and delivery. Perhaps the new gmail.com format is causing email to be put in the new tabs which are easy to overlook.

I'm a contest point giver so not a big deal to not be listed, but as a computer geek, there is a problem with the system if email and spreadsheets do not work or arrive at the destination.

Using my third email to see if it gets thru to anyone and copying Terry on this so it is not lost in the ether as my 2watt sig often is. Is anyone out there?

Gang:

IF you have an electronic keyer and you want to use
it with multiple rigs without plugging and unplugging
all the time, what circuit would you use to switch
between rigs.
I think I'd just use a simple rotary switch. I've got a couple of 12 position switches which are adjustable from 2 to 12 positions. Just connect a common ground and then have the input connected to the switch common, and then each rig connected to one of the switch positions.

Got my order in first and much to my surprise, the Post Office delivered today!  Packages only, but they were delivering them.  Opened the box at 4:00 p.m and had the kit completed by 4:45.  No battery pack yet, so not tested, but all the soldering and mechanicals are done.  Took just 45 minutes from start to finish and would have been shorter but one of the little screws had buggered up threads.  I had to dig one out of my storage box, but that wasn't a big problem.  
 
Found at least one instruction missing in the on-line assembly manual.  Didn't find anywhere a step to install the .1ufd capacitor, C1.  An inexperienced or first time kit builder might miss this.  
 
Also Q1 and Q2, the two MOSFET transistors are labeled U2 and U3 on the board's silkscreen.  Since the U designation is for IC's and the Q designator for transistors this might confuse some new(er) kit builders.
 
None of the errata found is earth-shattering, but you guys might want to be prepared to field lots of questions.

Radio Amateurs,

Reminder that the IAQSO Party is THIS SATURDAY OCTOBER 19, 2013 FROM 1400Z -
2300Z (9AM - 6PM CENTRAL TIME).
The purpose of the Iowa QSO Party (IAQSO) is to encourage contact with Iowa
amateur radio stations by other Iowa hams and hams worldwide. Stations outside
of Iowa work Iowa stations only. Iowa stations work everybody, including other
Iowa stations.

A complete listing of the contest rules can be found HERE at the 2013 IAQSO
Party Homepage.

This year we have several exciting changes to the IAQSO Contest Rules:

First, we have added two additional Entry Classes for QRP Stations. (Iowa QRP
and Out of State QRP) MANY of you have express interest in operating and
competing in this class.

Second, we have changed the Bonus Points by adding a new feature this year in an
effort to support JOTA. The Jamboree-on-the-Air, or JOTA, is an annual Scouting
event that uses amateur radio to link Scouts around the world, around the
nation, and in your own community. In the IAQSO, 100 Bonus Points (Max 500)
will be awarded for EACH JOTA station contact made.

As usual the WA0DX - Ottumwa Amateur Radio Club callsign will also be an added
100pt Bonus!

In addition, we have a NEW process for submitting your Contest Summary/Entry
Sheet and electronic logs. We have developed an automated - ELECTRONIC SUMMARY
& LOG SUBMISSION FORM - . This will ensure everyone's entries are process
quickly and correctly. Also, once you have submitted your Summary/Entry Sheet,
you can follow the scoring process, and see where you rank against other IAQSO
Participants by visiting: LIVE 2013 IAQSO PARTY STANDINGS. This page is updated
in REAL TIME as new entries are submitted!

We look forward to seeing you on the bands this weekend! Have Fun!

If you have any questions, please contact IAQSO@....
