QRP....."more smiles per watt"


OT: For Sale Bird 6250 Milliwatt Meter

Jim Sheldon
 

I have a WORKING Bird model 6250 milliwatt meter from way back in 1956.  This little baby has a range of 0-250 milliwatts from 30 to 500 MHz and has a built in dummy load.  It will indicate RF down to much lower frequencies than 30 MHz but I'm sure the meter reading won't be accurate much below 30 and I have no idea when this thing was last calibrated.
 
I actually have a PDF copy of the original Operation and Maintenance manual.  Of course, the spares and cables are no longer with it and the glass meter cover is cracked, but still intact.  There is no debris inside the meter that I can see and it functions properly.  Cosmetically it's about a 4 or 5 out of 10 as it has been well used.
 
To make sure it worked, I tested it with my Elecraft KX3 QRP rig.  I set the KX3 to .2 watts out at 54 MHz and output a steady CW carrier into the 6250.  Much to my surprise, the meter indicated 200 milliwatts right on the nose. At 30 MHz it read slightly less.  The only thing garnered from this test is that the meter works and the KX3's internal power output setting closely matches the meter.  How well either is calibrated is anyone's guess - LOL.  
 
Asking $85 plus shipping for it or $85 face to face in the Wichita, KS area.  I'll be listing it on the Elecraft reflector as well.  According to the data plate on the front panel it weighs 2.5 pounds and if I ship it, I will securely cocoon it in bubble wrap and if I can find some nesting boxes, I'll double box it as well.  That will probably add another pound so figure on 4 pounds from 67219 if you want it.
 
Please email off list if you're interested and I have a number of high resolution pictures I can send if anyone wants.

Re: Any 4S-QRP going to the MW convention?

David Bixler <qrp@...>
 

Hi Arnie:

I watched but never spotted you at the convention. I left at lunchtime for the trip back home, but did see several 4 Staters there Saturday morning.

Hope you can make it to Branson in April as we sure have a good time there!

Hi Group,

Well, I am sorry to say that I didn't make it to the lunch. My ride was tied up in one of the forums or something, and Joe had his transportation commandeered by his wife for some shopping or something.

It was a nice day, but I didn't think I would be able to walk that far to the waffle house and get back
in time for one of the forums I wanted to sit in on.

Also, at the end of the day, I think they called Cecils name for one of the hourly prizes.. Not sure what it was that was being drawn. Joe K0NEB was lucky as usual, and won not just one, but TWO Baofeng VHF/UHF HT's.

I hope to make it to Ozark Con in April.. Planning on it for now.

Re: Any 4S-QRP going to the MW convention?

I didn't get to make it to the lunch either.  Too busy working the Elecraft booth for both days.  Did run into a number of the guys that stopped by though, Joe (NEB), Arnie, Dave (W0CH) to just name a few.  
 
All in all, it was a pretty good time.  Didn't get a chance to make the grand prize drawing, so not sure who won the prizes.  Anyone with that info?

Hi Group,


Thought I would ask if any of the 4S-QRP group is going to the ARRL midwest convention in Lebanon next week?   And is there anything planned, such a 4SQRP  "eye ball"

QSO party over refreshments or a lunch/dinner gathering, Saturday or Saturday night?  


OR If anyone from the group is interested in a quick lunch gathering, there are several quick food places about 2 blocks from the convention center. These include Subway, Dairy Queen, Wendys and McD's.  Also across the street from the convention center (walking distance) is listed a BBQ ribs place that has a couple of good reviews on the Google website.


Anyone interested? Lets talk it up and see if we can get something planned.


We, (Mike NF0N and I) will not be getting into Lebanon until later in the evening Friday but will be found wandering around all day Saturday.   Plans are to leave my place about 10 AM Friday, and  return home on Sunday.. (its about a 7 hour drive for me, and Mike lives 1.5 hours north of me!).

Joe, K0NEB will be wandering around too.. he's leaving for the convention about 4 hours before Mike and I get underway, and he's an hour south of me..


I hope to see you there!

Gang,

Is there any reason why the QRPometer should not be modified to be
able to read power connected to a DL or to a matched antenna or
antenna via a tuner?

Essentially the change would be to switch the "unknown" leg of the
bridge from the DL to the antenna out jack.

Schematically a single DPDT switch would connect to DL or
antenna. I've drawn a schematic showing the circuit changes if
anyone would like to see the option.
