Re: Wed Nite Nets

AG1P Ron
 

Another 4SQRP member and I were discussing our lack of ability to check into the nets because of our location, lack of propagation.  I was wondering if some sort of relay of check-ins could be set up where a wider area could be served by the net.

The Four State QRP Comfortable nets meet each Wednesday night
beginning at 7:30 PM Central Time.

If we have to QSY, I like to move up, Wayne likes to move down,
and Dick doesn't have to move much at all.

Add anything to the exchange that you wish, temp rig, ant, etc.
Checking into all, sessions is encouraged. We call it the "Clean Sweep".

7:30 Central time ... 40M CW Net on 7122, KCØPMH NCS
8:00 " " ... 80M CW Net on 3564, WAØITP NCS.
8:30 " " ... 40M CW Net on 7122, KCØPMH NCS
9:00 " " ... 80M PSK Net on 3580.5, NØTGR NCS

All are welcome! After the nets, a list of checkins will be
posted on the Four State reflector.

Thursday AM 40m Net

Wayne Dillon
 

Well I checked in to Terry's net this morning, WOW what a difference to the Wednesday evening net. Terry was an honest 599 here in the frozen SE corner of Kansas, a huge signal considering that we often struggle and maybe don't connect at all in the evenings. Thanks for the net Terry, nice job.
As an aside I guess it also vindicates my "emergency" attic antenna. I'll stick with it until the spring when I can get to the outside monster.
Thanks again Terry and God Bless to all

OK, I got the "emergency" 0.5 size G5RV up in the attic this afternoon, then went visiting, when I got back (03:00z) I fired up everything and put out a few CQ's to see what HAMjitsu would report, here's the skinny:

So I guess not too shabby for a lash-up. It looks like I may have a possible GO situation for the Thursday AM Net.
I hope you all had a grand time with family and fiends, ate too much, drank sufficient to make aunt Zelda's rendition of "Jingle Bells" sound good and will be present and correct on Terry's AM 40 net in the morning.

Re: Digikey Schematic Drawing Program

Phil Anderson
 

Hi all,

I'll check out Express PCB and compare/contrast it with 4PCB.com
and their free software PCB Artist..........4PCB of Colorado as a quick
turn no frills for prototypes......wherein they etch to board and send
it back = just over the weekend = so you can check out your design.....
with this quicky, you don't get the printing on the PCB.....but
is cheap and quick for a check of a layout.

Later, Uncle Phil..........Happy Holidays you-all....72!

Hi John and Terry,
Several companies making PCBs will accept the files from ExpressPCB
(Futurlec.com, Far Circuits, etc.). Also, you can convert the
ExpressPCB files to Gerber files using a program called Copper
Connection. Almost all board houses will accept Gerber files.

    Terry:

    go to Expresspcb.com and you can download similar free software.
    They have express_sch and express_pcb. Both are very similar to
    each other in operation, except one makes schematics and the other
    makes PCB patterns. While it doesn't give you digi-key part
    numbers, it does print out a bill of materials. Also, once you
    design it, you can order the PCB from them (not free). Another
    feature is you can link a schematic to your PCB design. While
    designing the PCB, when you click a pin on a part, it highlights
    all the other parts/pins that pin is supposed to connect to.

    One advantage of the DIgikey software is, being web-based, it
    works with Linux as well as Windows. The Express software only
    works on Windows.

    We're expecting a houseful of company tomorrow, so all my hobby
    stuff is temporarily put away. It will come out again on Thursday.

    Happy holidays, everyone!
