Does it need any modification or is it ready to go as is? I will be using it with a K1.

Tonites 40m Nets

Wayne Dillon
 

Hi all,
Yep I'll be on duty for the nets tonite. However, I'm not holding out much hope for conditions for the late net but hey, that's ham radio right? So, what we'll do is (if there's enough takers) not break the nets, just keep going for as long as the band lasts. Check-in several times if you like, we'll treat it as a mini propagation study.
7.122 a usual, keep a weather-eye on QRPSpots for the exact QRG.
God Bless all and I hope to hear you later.

Re: Cryptic mailing to the list

Jim Sheldon
 

Hi Don and anyone else concerned.  Thanks for asking that.  I had not really done a voltage test under load on that thing and it really needs to be done, so I just did a no-load, 250ma load and 2.5 amp load test on one of those little power supplies I mentioned earlier and the results are in.
 
Voltage @ 0 load  = 13.95
Voltage @ 250ma = 13.80
Voltage @ 2.5 Amps =13.35
 
I used the KX3 as the load source.  No load, KX3 off, 250 ma, KX3 receive @ max volume with LCD backlight on at it's brightest and all extra current hogging options turned on and 2.5 amps was at MAX transmit power (12 watts out into a dummy load).
 
The supply max current spec is 4.0 amps but I didn't have thing on hand with which to load it that heavy.  I do think that .6 volt drop from no load to just over half rated load is very acceptable and as someone else using the same supply said, it's very quiet.  I have searched long and hard with the KX3's excellent receiver and have not found any birdies that I can attribute to the supply.  I've used one for about a year now and haven't found any reason to leave it home.  It was the supply I used at OzarkCon on the KX3.  The K3 I had there was, of course, run on my MFJ 4245 MV supply.

Is that 13.8 vdc measurement under load and if so, how much load?

RMRc today, antenna ck

Dale Putnam
 

I'm excited, today is the day that we get to check into the RMRc on 14.0625 at 2300z (4pm MT) 
and compare temps and check out my new antenna.. it is up all the way at 50 foot now.. 
if this test is good.. the next change will add 160.. just in time for the contest next weekend.
Then.. at 2345z or 4:45pm MT we can check it again.. and compare temps too. 
The sun came up this morning.. the temp headed down.. what's up with that?

See you this afternoon!!

Have a great day,

I really like the brand name of that power supply:  HQRP.  I also notice they include an "HQRP" coaster with the power supply.  I wonder how difficult it would be to remove the "H"?
