642.26 Miles/watt. Still pretty good. At 100mW it would of course have been 4682 Miles/Watt.

I always enjoy this net and look forward to it each week.

Wednesday night warbles.

ka0ncr
 


I was able to check in to the 80M PSK net this evening.. Barely!   band was

noisy for most of the time and my attempt at using the KX3 with the utility terminal program was more like something larry, curly and mo would be doing!

I hope that I did not qrm anyone who was trying to get in, but QRN was working against me!

Was running about 5 watts to a non-resonant dipole which was at 35 ft at one end

and at the middle, then the other 1/2 of the wire slopes down and is  wrapped around my eve trough's down spout.!


I was able to check in and at the end of the net the band seem to get a little less full of QRN.and I was able to copy most of the text.  


Will try again in a few weeks, I hope with better antenna and will be using a

sound card program instead of the internal psk on the kx3..

P.S.  Looking forward to the Brutus bash again this year!  See you there!

Heatsink "Glue"

Dan Reynolds
 

I've been working on a CNC project for quite some time. One of those I'm going to finish this someday projects...

I changed my motor controller over to an Arduino based design that uses the Pololu motor control modules (very common in the 3D printer arena). They recommend heatsinks and forced cooling for long life of the modules - naturally. 
The modules I got had nice little alum heatsinks like you see on motherboard chips and the like but no means to attach them. And since this was a pretty critical component I figured the attachment method should be pretty good.

I found a zillion different methods but the one that looked the best and most reliable was an epoxy made by the Arctic Silver people. They are the guys that make the best heat sink compound for computer CPU's. They actually have an epoxy. The official name is: "Arctic Silver AATA-5G Arctic Alumina 5g Thermal Adhesive Epoxy Set" -- most places have it in larger tubes for about $30. I found it on everyone's favorite water auction site, eBay. 
Here's a link to the 5 gram tube set I bought, the vendor was "Super Star Click" if that link doesn't work. It was $6.53 and you're only supposed to use the slightest amount and clamp it good. Plus, even though it has silver in it it is non-conductive(huh?). Which might help if some squeezes out in the wrong place...

Just thought I'd pass this on. I'm thinking a 5g tube will glue on a lot of heatsinks.

OT: Price Drop - current production Vibroplex Blue Racer Key

Jim Sheldon
 

One & only price drop on the Vibroplex Blue Racer bug I listed several days ago - it's just over a year old and was purchased at Dayton last year for almost $230.  It has the blue base and jeweled pivot bearings.  I'll include an extra weight to help slow it down below 20 wpm if desired.
 
It has become surplus to my needs here and I'm willing to let it go for $170 shipped anywhere in the U.S. lower 48. 
 
USPS Money Order or PayPal accepted.
 
High resolution pictures are available by email on request but this key is a 9 out of 10 with a minor scratch on the label (there when I got it).  Serial number is 400,020.
 
Anyone interested, please email me off list and first email (by date/time sent) gets right of first refusal.
