Re: Tonites 40m Net(s)

Sam Neal
 

Hello,

I was trying out a new transmitter tonight ( 7 QSOs so far ), a 6V6 crystal
oscillator running 4 Watts output. Pardon the keying for the next few weeks as
I re-learn how to use a Hallicrafters HA-1/TO keyer. It has relay keying so I
can use it to key the cathode keyed tube rigs here at N5AF.

My 7122 crystal is slightly low in frequency, so keep me in mind when QNI
time.

73,

Sam Neal N5AF

Tonites 40m Net(s)

I rather suspect that Terry will have a much better response in the morning
than I will this evening. That's just the way it is at this time of year,
it will get better as spring approaches. I wish I could join y'all on the
Thursday morning nets but my boss insists that I be at work and that that I
be about my duties! Whatta guy...
Have fun tomorrow AM. I'll see what happens on the early net as it may not
be worth running the late net, keep an eye on QRPSpots and the e-mail, I'll
post my intentions after the early net. It would seem that the later it
gets the longer the band goes, oh well... I see from the news that there
was a large flare, I also wonder how this will affect performance of the
band.
God Bless all and stay safe/warm/operating.

Norcal doublet

John Adams <johnk4qq@...>
 

I have been a ham for 52 years. During that time I have made nearly all of my antennas, except for a beam. I don't know why, but during this time I have not constructed a Norcal Doublet. From reading about it, it seems like it would make a good portable antenna to use with my K1. I am sure several of you have built one at some time. Question: what is your opinion about it's performance and efficiency? Thanks and 73, John K4QQ.

Re: 4sqrp Thursday Morning Net Checkins

w2sh@...
 

With increasing daylight, I doubted that 2 1/2 hours after my NJ sunrise I'd hear you guys.  But doggone, there was Terry, 937 miles distant, pushing an easy 559.  I dropped my callsign at 1450Z, but WBØQQT got answered.  I made it just after him and got 579 from Terry.

The difference in signal reports is because Terry had 73 minutes (Best Regards Sack Time?--gotta love that QZZ!) more darkness than me.

I'll try to QNI on future Thursday mornings, but think my 5W will not do an all daylight path much longer.

72,

Charles, W2SH

What a great net today, I admit, I was anticipating an effect of the ol man sun... but 
if there was.. it was good. 
We had 4 check in for chats.

N6MY in Ca,
KF7WNS in Or
K5DL in Tx
AA7CU in AZ

Missed the east.. maybe that was the sun effect?

will be listing for you next Tues, on the (R)ocky (M)ountain (R)egional (c)ontinental net
sponsored by NAQCC but the nets are the only activity NAQCC accepts QRO operation on.
However.. it is simply amazing to me, how often I can run the net just fine at 5 watts, and that
with a wire antenna. 



Have a great day,

Re: Thurs Morning Checkins

Rick Bennett
 

I managed to get the radio in my office turned on late in the net and was surprised to hear it was still going.  I copied WA0ITP, KD4OBQ, WR9H(?) and NE5DL(?).  Everyone was really solid here in Jefferson City, at or near 599.  Too many distractions to copy everything and get geared up to check in.  The rig is an ICOM 706MKIIG and I will have to pull out the instructions again to get the power turned down and get to the keyer settings.  And I will probably have to close the door to keep people away long enough to check in.

 

Anyway, good job on the net Terry.

|
| Date/time: Sunday, 12 January, 2014, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm CST. Note: We
| can't use UTC because then it would be Monday! But for you DX stations
| out there, it is 13 January, 0100 - 0300Z.
|
| Bands: 160M through 10M, but never the WARC bands or 60M.
| Frequencies: The usual QRP frequencies - don't forget 7122 kHz and 3564 kHz.
| Power: 5 Watts maximum. 1 Watt or less (QRPp) is impressive, but not
| worth any extra credit.
| Mode: CW or sideband.
| Exchange: RST, SPC, and member number (members) or RST, SPC, power
| (non-members).
| Calling CQ: "CQ 4S" seems to be the standard.
|
| Reporting:
| This is where higher math is required. You need to add up your QSOs for
| each band and send them to me. We're assuming everyone is honest and
| I'll be darned if I'm going to try to cross-check QSOs. A typical report
| would be:
|
| Name: Fido
| Call: K9DOG
| 4SQRP number: 5280
| Results:
| 40M: 1 QSO (N0CAT)
| 80M: 1 QSO (N0CAT) (Same station, two different bands counts for 2

| Total: 2 QSOs (I told you higher math is required).

| "Sprint" in the subject line, include your name, call and your 4SQRP

| I'll tally the results and publish them on this reflector as soon as
| possible, probably Wednesday morning. Please don't send results
| Wednesday or later. This is not like Field Day. There are no

| you send in the results shortly after 9:00 pm Sunday so you don't forget.
|
| Please keep this email until after you've submitted your score for
| Sunday. I'll send brief reminders both Saturday and Sunday (but only if
| I remember). I'll also send a reminder about reporting your score.
| And, if all goes well, I'll report the results on Wednesday. The
| results will be for Sunday's sprint and cumulative scores since
| November. Remember, the person with the most contacts between November,

I rather suspect that Terry will have a much better response in the morning than I will this evening. That's just the way it is at this time of year, it will get better as spring approaches. I wish I could join y'all on the Thursday morning nets but my boss insists that I be at work and that that I be about my duties! Whatta guy...
Have fun tomorrow AM. I'll see what happens on the early net as it may not be worth running the late net, keep an eye on QRPSpots and the e-mail, I'll post my intentions after the early net. It would seem that the later it gets the longer the band goes, oh well... I see from the news that there was a large flare, I also wonder how this will affect performance of the band.
God Bless all and stay safe/warm/operating.

Jesus came to pay a debt He didn't owe because we owe a debt we cannot pay...

The Lord bless you and keep you
The Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious unto you
The Lord lift up his contenance upon you and give you peace.

God Bless from Wayne Dillon - KC0PMH
