I would suggest a multiband dipole. They're fairly easy to build and once you get them tuned right you shouldn't need a tuner.

Re: 7122 crystals for my pig rig

WA0ITP
 

Just plug 'em in and tweak C26, the trim cap in series with L1 and the
oscillator crystal. I listened on my big rig to put the osc on 7122.

I knew the eagles we have here were once scarce. We seem to have plenty of the osprey, too. Apparently the DDT ban helped them (and maybe us, too). Do we know what frequencies they transmit on? Maybe we can work them as DX.

Greetings Larry,

I am a green ham and actually I just ordered my first rig a ICOM IC-735 with the PS-55 power supply.  Now in my shack I am set up; I have a 40' tower with a 25' Solaracon CB antenna that goes to my "rci."   I am confused on what would be a good multi band antenna that I can homebrew.

I am in Garnett, KS; in two weeks I will be testing in Iola, KS.

Need advice from everyone please.

RMRc 2200z 14.0625 and 2245 - 7.0625

Your handy (maybe) dandy (not so much) NCS is still working with a temp antenna, so bear with me, while we all practice 
our cw skills. I'll match your speed, and you get to talk about... well.. what ever you want to talk about.
And, listen to everyone else check in too.. then I will go back thru the list.. to get each of your comments.
Another way to say it.. check in.. then stand by and listen to the rest get checked in.. then listen to all the comments,
until NCS calls you.. then make your comments at your own speed. 
  IS this different? Yes... it is, and if you want to tag in comments about one of the other stations comments.. feel 
free to do so.. that is what it is all about.
  See you at 2200z

AND.. at 2245 or so, I will call the RMRc on 7.0625  and we'll do it again.
 See you this afternoon!!

Have a great day,

LCD and Bezel Installation Notes.

WA0ITP
 

For me, a freqency display has become almost a neccessity. No better way to get
that than to install an LCD. However it's always been a challenge to make them
look nice. Usually I just cut a hole in the panel, stick the face of the LCD
thru it. That's not very attractive and our projects deserve better treatment of
this very important feature.

Long time friend and super builder Dave Rogers, WB4CHK, came to the rescue with
some explicit and well thought out notes on LCD and Bezel installation. I
originally posted them on the AT Sprint reflector, and now have uploaded them
for all to use when needed www.wa0itp.com/lcd_installation.html

Turns out that it's quite easy to accomplish. I had a mental block thinking the
LCD protruded throught the bezel opening, it doesn't. The bezel's only function
is to cover the edges of the hole in the panel, the LCD fits behind it. Dave's
notes make that clear. You can also link to the page from my Tips, Tricks, info
page. http://www.wa0itp.com/tipstricksinfo.html

Hi Group,


I don't know if the guys at the Bash remember W0EB making a contact with the Midwest HB-QRP club station on Saturday, but we were able to contact N0GQ on a cross mode qso.


If you look at our Homebrewers and QRP site at 


http://www.hbqrp.org/


You will see KM0Y Brian at the helm of Joe K0NEB's FT-817.  Seems Joe forgot the key so we had to do a cross mode contact with W0EB on CW and Brian on the mic.   I had mentioned the contact from Brutus to Joe-K0NEB earlyer in the week and told him that we should try to make a contact on 40 meters.  Not bad for 5 watts on 40 meters around 12 noon!  


The HB-QRP group meets in a pizza shop about 1/2 way between Omaha and Lincoln Nebraska every 2nd Saturday of the month.  The pizza place is very pleased to have us there, and supplies a meeting room and allowed us to put up a permanent G5RV antenna install on the roof, and run the Co-ax cable into the meeting room and terminate it in a connector in an electrical box on the wall.


I am already looking forward to next year's bash, and I hope to be able to spend a few more days there, maybe arrive a day or two earlier.  I hope to bring Mike, NF0N along again. He enjoyed it 2 years ago, but had other things preventing him from coming along this year.  Maybe I can talk him in to Ozarkcon! too.

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.
