Ahhhhh yes, WB0QQT started out as WN0QQT in 1975. Never have given any thought to changing my call as I figure it's good for CW practice. (chuckle)
 
Glad you mentioned the short call versus the long call. Guess I never thought of it that way but it makes sense to me. It works too as you say.Thanks !

Here's what Terry posted on March 1st about the enclosure:

If you use the Ten Tec TP-19 enclosure, I'll be happy to send you a label with
your call and build date on
it. A picture of mine in the TPC-19 is here, http://www.wa0itp.com/index.html
I do like the charcoal color. The TP-19 dimensions on the Ten Tec web site
differ from the one I purchased. Mine is 2" x 4.75" x 4" and the PigRig fits
perfectly. http://www.wa0itp.com/pigrig3b.jpg

Re: QRPspots Android App

Awesome. Works perfect on my rooted Note :) Even allows me to enter 600 meter data. That will be useful later when we get the band as Amateur and I am out running portable QRP in the parks with my tiny antenna ;)

George,

Excellent work so far, but I suspect it's time to post your note on
the Flying Pig reflector. Most PigRig builders hang out there and the
designer monitors the list also.

The extra 1/2" core is probably for the choke on the power supply
leads.

Good luck.
AH!

So it's a half *INCH* core and not half of a core!

Y'all have to understand you don't get any bragging rights at all for
confusing me because it's just too easy.

So far I have done the following:
Made sure all parts in correct place.
Checked toroids. One had one xtra turn. Removed xtra turn.
Removed binocular toroids and re wound them.
Re heated all solder joints.
Made sure all transistors were correct ones and installed correctly.
I tried changing xtal. Problem still there.
If I listen to the osc without transmitting I do not hear any birdies.
I have a 1/2 toroid left over. Parts list says it is L7. I see no place for it on the board or see it on the schematic?
 I have also tried running the rig on battery power.
About ready to put it in the pig sty (junk box)
 Tnx to everyone for your suggestions.

Hi George,
 
Listening to you on 40 meters this morning in QSO with W8QP.
I tried to call you first but couldn't figure out which signal was your findamental
as you are radiating on the whole band 1.2khz apart.
Thought you might want to know about it before an OO sights in on you.

Uuups, I just checked also the http://qrpspots.com/ and there my call sign was also not displayed. If I remember correctly ... once upon a time it worked ;-)

Since it's rock-bound, it doesn't matter what freq. it's on....  if the freq is busy, you do the same thing you would at any other freq., wait or join into the QSO.

Well it's neat to see all the excitement that 
has been stirred up with the DiZ Pig Rig!
Now, we need to find some  "Watering Holes  for our group to hang out at so we can go there and see who is calling CQ. 3564 and 7122 seem like candidates for 40 and 80, but how about 20m?
Do we move up a little to 14.062? 
Just a thought for you guys to kick around.
We seem to have a new found presence on the QRP world and I think it would be neat to have a place to meet up on the bands!

Hi, George,

You might want to check the transmitter oscillator crystal.  I recall a very similar incident back in the 1960s when WA8JTA's Ameco TX-62 suddenly began putting out signals every 25kHz or so … he was using an 8mHz crystal, multiplied 18X to reach the two meter band.  He changed crystals, and the problem was solved.  He could never use that first crystal again; any attempt to utilize it resulted in multiple outputs.  Yours sounds very similar, and would appear to give similar results if you multiplied it to reach 2 meters.  I wish you the best in locating the problem!  72/73 de K8CQA


Re: 4S QRP Watering Holes!

GM John and all,
 
At least one person has moved the trim cap that is in series with the crystal to the front panel. He uses a small air variable and it allows pulling the crystal a bit.
