Subject: [4sqrp] CW Switch box

Hi all,
Just posted a few pictures of my CW Switch box (with built-in keyer) to the group yahoo page. KC0PMH photos. It has switched outputs for up to 6 different radio's. Sorry the picture of the back of the box isn't the best but you'll get the idea. The box sits on the monitor shelf, secured with a couple of inch square velcro fasteners.
The MKII (under construction) has inputs for not only key, paddle but also PTT (from the PC keying interface) and will therefore have only 4 outputs. Again the keyer will be built in. It's fun to solve you're own problems and create something that is not only functional but pleasing to the eye in the shack.
Just my take on it.

Re: Small Power Distribution Center.

Ray Cadmus
 

Looks like a nice distribution box.  If you would like another take on the idea see (down the page) :

http://www.qsl.net/wd4bis/connect.htm

I've made a couple of these and have been very satisfied with them.  I make the traces in the PCB using a burr in a Dremel drill press.  I was surprised to find that the simple type-F connectors do make good fuse sockets.

Re: Regenerative receiver thoughts

Jerry Haigwood <jerry@...>
 

Bill,
The problem with the regenrx group is that they really try to discourage
building with anything other than tubes or as the Brits like to say, valves.
I have been a member for quite a while and 99% of the posts there relate to
tube regens. Every now and then someone actually gets upset if another user
says something about building a solid state regen.
