Randy:

If you have a legitimate excuse for late submittal, I don't think anyone would mind if you sent me your results late.  I've got to make a couple of corrections anyway.  My main reason for setting a submittal "deadline" was to know when I could safely summarize the results and be done with them until next month.  Send them my way today and I'll include them in my final summary tomorrow.  But once the final summary is sent out, that's it until February.

GM All,

Nice turnout for the Sprint this month, great fun. I'm glad to see the
participation growing, its a fun little Sprint, vy easy to participate in, and a
good way to contact other members for fun and awards. I see Chuck Adams K7QO
participated this month, great to have you in the hunt. I believe that he
mentioned on his reflector that he was using a Pig Rig. Way to go Chuck!

Hope to see all again next month.

Re: 14 volt power supply

I bought two and I have no noise problems, on the other hand I have several power supplies for an external Hard Disk and they also have no noise detectable. I guess ones mileage will vary.

Re: [QRP-L] NB6M test set capacitor substitution

Hello QRPers,
Greetings Ron,


I have started construction of the 4 States QRP Group, NB6M HF test set
That's an old kit! :-)

and have run into a minor snag. In the crystal oscillator section C12 & C13 are supposed to be 120 pF monolithic capacitors. I only have one (don't know if one is missing or if I managed to loose one) and would like to know if I could substitute 100 pF or 150 pF monolithic capacitors from my NorCal QRP club capacitor kit for these.

Yes, either will work fine. If using the 100 pF, put it in the base-emitter position, if using the 150 pF, put it in the emitter-ground position. In each case, the base-emitter position will have the smaller of the two capacitors.

I am sure the people at 4 States QRP Group would send me one,

I don't know if that kit is still being supported with parts, but you already have what you need to make the kit work.

but it may be easier and faster if I could do the substitution.

Do it! :-)

I also have the NorCal QRP Club resistor kit, so if changing the value of C12 and/or C13 would involve changing the nearby resistors, I probably have the needed ones.

No resistor changes needed.


Thanks for any help the group can offer.
You are welcome.

Corrections coming

John Lonigro
 

Folks:

First of all, the rarefied air of Kansas must have swallowed Uncle Phil's (W0XI) submission. Secondly, I went to the spam folder and found an entry from Jerry (W0CLR). I've fixed these two omissions, but am going to wait a day or two before publishing them, to see if I missed anyone else. If I made any other omissions or messed up your score, please let me know ASAP. Next month, I'll be sure to check the spam folder for any additional entries before sending out the results. Still haven't located Phil's entry though.

Sorry about the omissions. (And Walter said this job was a piece of cake!)

Yikes.  It was an accident, really.

I had finished the Flying Pig Rig for 7.122MHz, Serial #334,
and put it into its own little play pen and was testing it out.
Being in a restricted area for antennas I put up a rotatable
dipole at 6m  and had gotten the SWR to 1.1:1 and was
excited to hear some good signals.  I push up the antenna
as soon as it is dark enough for people not to notice it
behind the large palm trees.  :-)

I heard guys calling CQ 4S, so I dug out my number and
started working them.

I did not know until the next morning that I was in a
contest.  :-)

Thanks to the hard work of W2SH and others I did manage
some new states from this QTH.

I will be back for the next one.  Nice fun contest.

appreciate your effort so that we can have fun on the air. I'll be sure to send
soapbox comments next time. They're always fun to read. 80M was the most
productive band here, 40 was long and quiet around the watering hole.

Thanx again.

Subject: [4sqrp] January SSS Results


| Well, in my opinion, the January Second Sunday Sprint was a success.
| There were 10 entries, compared to 3 in November and only 2 in December.
| Marshall W0OTM and Terry WA0ITP led the pack with 8 QSOs each.
| Impressive to me was the span of states that participated - three from
| out West (AZ, CA, and OR) and one from the East (NJ), along with the
| usual Midwest suspects. Here are the results:
|
| Call Name QTH 4SQRP # QSOs
| W0OTM Marshall Ottumwa, IA 310 8
| WA0ITP Terry Ottumwa, IA 38 8
| K7QO Chuck Peoria, AZ 631 6
| KV6Z Bill Claremore, OK 520 6
| W2SH Charles Millington, NJ 85 6
| KF7WNS Gary Bandon, OR 687 5
| KB5FCF Joel Edmond, OK 90 4
| AC0BQ Johnny Lebo, KS 162 3
| AA5CO Bruce Tulsa, OK 664 2
| WB6HVH John Visalia, CA 149 1
|
| The cumulative leader for the year (since November) is Terry WA0ITP with
| 11 QSOs, closely followed by Marshall W0OTM with 8 (must be the Iowa
| soil-hi). After the April SSS (about the halfway point), I'll post
| everyone's cumulative score.
|
| If you find any mistakes, please let me know.
|
| Soapbox:
|
| Gary – KF7WNS:
| John, lots of fun! My first time out on the SSS. Total= 5 QSO's. Several
| came back to me, but I'm plagued by a noise that comes and goes at
| inopertune times. See everyone next month.
|
| Bill – KV6Z:
| The QRN was bad, but the SSB QRM was brutal. I had to ask for fills on
| several occasions.
| A real heartbreaker was the broken QSO with Gary (KF7WNS). It took
| several attempts to get his call (this guy has real patience!) but I
| never quite got his 4S number.
| I listened as hard as I could and used earphones, but no cigar. And he
| would have been #48 for my W25 award. Bummer. <insert image of unhappy
| radio operator here>. On a lighter note, I haven't had this much fun
| since the last SSS and I'd like to thank the organizers of this event
| for all the work they do. C U next time.
|
| Bruce - AA5CO:
| ol' #52 Cyclone 40 5 watts
| 40 meter inv vee center at 33 feet.
|
| Chuck – K7QO:
| Was just testing the new rig. I did not know that I was
| in a contest until this morning when I saw the notice
| on the reflector to send in a log. :-)
| Thanks and I will be in all of them from now on,
| A lot of fun.
|
| Charles, W2SH
| Signals long on 40m and strong on 80m. Activity seemed light.
|
| John - WB6HVH:
| Bummer.
|
|
| Until February, 72,

Re: January SSS Results

WA0ITP
 

GM All,

Nice turnout for the Sprint this month, great fun. I'm glad to see the
participation growing, its a fun little Sprint, vy easy to participate in, and a
good way to contact other members for fun and awards. I see Chuck Adams K7QO
participated this month, great to have you in the hunt. I believe that he
mentioned on his reflector that he was using a Pig Rig. Way to go Chuck!

Hope to see all again next month.
