Terry,

Put my name on the list...

Thanks!


Thanks for asking. Yes but we only made a small run this time to cover the
build session and FDIM sales. After FDIM we'll do another run.

Jerry, what a nice "infomercial" you gave for the Ozark Patrol regen receiver. I do not have one yet, but knowing the background on it, then the receiver is a welcome place holder in the Ham shack.

Thank you and your son for being a participant at OzarkCon.

I am amazed at how well the Ozark Patrol regen works! If you built one at Ozarkcon and haven't played with it yet you are missing out on some fun. 


My son wanted to take part in the Friday night Ozarkcon building session so we teamed up and put the Ozark Patrol receiver together. It was a fun project, easy to build and the front panel looks great. I figured it would work about like all the other regens I have built in the past but no, this one is different. It is sensitive, the regen control is smooth and predictable and the bandspread tuning is just right. 

I hooked it up to my trap dipole for 80,40 and 30 meters. I messed with the gimic capacitors a little and started tuning around. Lots of short wave stations were heard but the english speaking ones were not too interesting to listen to right then. I practiced the two hand tuning method the guys at the building session taught me and then I tuned in WWV, adjusted the main tuning knob to 10MHz, shut it off and went to bed. The next morning at about 7am I turned it on and WWV was gone but WWVH from Kaui Hawaii was coming in. 

Since then I have been letting it play when I am in the shack in the evening. I'm still hearing a lot of short wave stations but mostly I listen to 40M SSB and CW qsos. One evening while casually listening to 40M I heard F5IN calling CQ and working some stateside stations. RBN showed him at 25 to 31 dB on the skimmers in 8 land so he had a good signal but I think think this receiver will hear weaker ones without any trouble.

I think this receiver deserves a nice case like the ones N5IB made. As soon as my current woodworking project is finished I am going to dress it up with a fancy case. 

Thanks Dave for a great design and thanks Dar, Darrell and the whole buildathon gang for making it happen. 73,

Charles:

It must have been a bad night all around.  Counting your report, I've had 4 scores sent in, two of them had 1 QSO each (to each other) and two had none.  I know lots of storms were in the midwest yesterday and assume most folks had their antennas disconnected.  Mine was.  Most of the scores are sent in within 24 hours of the contest end, so I'm guessing there may not be many more reports this month.  A real bummer!

It's Monday. If you didn't participate in the SSS last night, your next
chance won't be until May.

If you DID participate in the SSS last night, don't forget to send in
your results so I can tally them. You've got until midnight tomorrow
(Tuesday) night to get them in. This is your only reminder to send in
your score. Send an email with your results to:

SecondSundaySprint@...

Put "Sprint" in the subject line.

Don't "reply" with your results. This is my everyday email. I have a
special one set up for sprints.

So far, I've received two (2) scores from last night. Maybe there were
a lot of storms all over the area. We had a forecast of severe
thunderstorms locally and I left my antenna disconnected. Perhaps a lot
of others did the same. Anyway, even if you only made one contact in
last night's contest, send it in. You may have done better than you
thought.

Re: Brrr!

Dale Putnam
 

You got that... or she has that right,, Jim.... 
I had to exercise my 4x4 this morning, to get out of the driveway... 
and still drug the transfer case and differentials,.... in the snow.
The antenna's are still up.. but the electric fence isn't.. had horses 
tasting the fresh green grass.... poking through the snow. 
  No flowers here.. yet... but the sun is out.. clear skies and now it is all the way
up to 24F... so the water will run today.
  Moisture is a good thing, but the 4th is a good day for planting.. the short crops...
Because the first freeze is +/- 2 weeks of Labor Day... 
oh.. that's right.. 45 days of growing season here.... 
3 in Jan... 2 in Feb.. a couple in May...     ... . . . . . .

Have a great day,

Not as much snow, but 1/4" on the ground as of 7 a.m. in Park City, just North of Wichita.  Total precip (rain & melted snow in the gauge) .31" and we had some marble sized hail yesterday as well.  
 
Dale, my wife WAS going to set her yearly flowers out today, but decided, like you, that the 4th of July might be a better bet and the way things have been going this year, even that's not a sure thing - LOL!

get it in the ground early for once... now that it is all plowed, raked and ready... 
Won't be sayin that again.... that's for sure.

Backing up Email

WA0ITP
 

I hadnt backed up my email messages, folders, address boook, etc, andwas feeling
vulnerable. It would have been a nightmare to lose all the Four State info. I
use Outlook Express and to say that the manual backup routine is convoluted is a
huge understatement.

Looking around for a backup utility program, I stumbled upon Amic Email Backup.
It will backup everything, folders, filters, messages, anf address book. for 11
different email programs including most, if not all, of the commonly used ones.
Plus it can be scheduled to run whenever you wish. Recovery looks to be a 1
click event.

Amic offers a free version good for 15 days. It's incredibly easy to use, and
now I'm breathing easier. Usual disclaimers of course. There are others out
there too, and all look to be much easier than backing up manually.

Spring/Winter pick one!!

Dale Putnam
 

Yesterday, it was a beauticul 69F with puffy clouds, and a very light breeze..
Not sure which I liked better the warm, or the no wind... but it was nice.. either way...
This morning.. I went out to feed horses... in 6 inches of new heavy, wet snow.. with 15 mph wind.. after a 
couple hours of Thundersnow.... and
at 27F.. now it is 22F and 25mph winds.. and fog with light dry snow...   
April is a fun month.. Yesterday.... getting ready to plant the garden.. today.. can't find the snow shovel fast enough... 

Hope you're all doing well.. and Iowa suvives the T-Storms. 

Have a great day,
