Well, you know what they say, if you don’t like the weather in Kansas, just wait a minute, it’ll change!  The current forecast is for a 50% chance of rain on Friday, high of 61, low of 44, and 10% chance of rain Saturday, high of 68, low of 49.  So I’d say bring along your woolies if you’re staying overnight!

 

See you all Friday!

Next weekend is our annual Big Brutus Bash and the stars are aligning to ensure a terrific weekend..

The weather is looking perfect - sunny and clear with daytime highs in the low 70's and overnight lows in the
50's.  In other words, absolutely perfect camping weather.  If you'd rather not camp, nearby Pittsburg and Parsons both offer excellent motel and dining facilities.  Both are only about 20 minutes from Brutus.

The bands are coming back.  The A index is forecast to be down around 2 and the Solar flux up around 120 so it should be a good weekend for making contacts also.

Re: Brutus Predictions

Charlie, I have a couple of the Baofeng handheld radios myself, along with the CHIRP programming software and a file of almost all repeaters in SEKS - should have all the Pittsburg and Parsons repeaters in there, which will be the best ones for Brutus.  I will make sure to bring along one of my Radios, and was already planning to bring my laptop which has CHIRP installed on it.  Will be a very simple matter for me to clone my HT to yours.  I'll be putting up a J-Pole at the top of my 20ft pool cleaning pole that serves as my portable mast, so we can even try it out there!  Just come find me (I should be in spot 9, Maroon-colored Ford Ranger, and I will help you out!

One thing I will mention to you, specific to those HT's - the programming cable that comes with them is problematic with Windows 7 or 8.  The PL-2303 USB-RS232 chip inside them is a Chinese counterfeit chip usually, and Prolific's drivers have started blacklisting it.  I ended up picking up this cable instead: http://www.amazon.com/Kenwood-Programming-Chipset-Weierwei-Quansheng/dp/B0097E2I2S  - it uses the FTDI chip which is works much better with newer windows systems - I ended up donating my old cable to our local CERT team, along with an old Acer mini-laptop to use for programming the radios they've purchased while out in the field.

So far no changes in my plans to FINALLY attend one of these. My brother, KC0WAB, and I will be coming over together and if my old body can stand it, we are planning on camping too. Might have to modify that to a motel, but we are planning on being there.

By chance since I am not an FM person, does anyone have a file for the Baofeng UV-5RAX+ HT for the repeaters and tones in that particular area ?

I received it for my birthday a week or so back from both of my ham sons, who operate mainly FM, and I have not yet programmed anything into it. I am pretty sure I have the correct cable for programming it.

The Classic Exchange (CX) phone section will be next Sunday (9/15) and the CW section will be the following Sunday (9/22).  A great time to hear real boat anchors on the air and work them.  This is a low key competition, actually, it is an on-air celebration of these good old rigs.  Details are at the CX web site CLASSIC EXCHANGE - CX - SEPTEMBER 2014.

While you are there be sure to browse the CX Newsletter from the January 2014 CX to get the flavor of the CX and enjoy some of the experiences of participants, such as who had the unusual rigs, most noteworthy (chirpy?) signal and the story of a receiver recovery "How The Fat Lady Got Her Voice Back."

Hope you will join us in reliving those joyful days of boat anchors on the air.

Re: Tonight's 40m Net

Hello again Paul,

I was 13 years old in the 7-th grade going to a 2 teacher country school, one
teacher in one room for the first through the fourth grade and another teacher
for the fifth through the eighth grades in another room. I had absolutely no
supply of parts and saved a dollar or so for each order and ordered the parts
2 - 3 at a time and built the 1954 version of the 6L6 transmitter and it's
matching 3S4 super-regen - ordering parts from Walter Ashe Radio Company 1125
Pine Street, St. Louis Mo ( no ZIP code ). They both actually worked!

It called for brass screws for the slatboards and I looked high and low until
I found an old sunk fisher-man's 12 foot boat +- rotting in an old gravel pit
and got the real genuine brass screws there, little realizing that glue would
have worked just as well!

Re: Tonight's 40m Net

Hello 4SQRP Group,

Tonight, I was running the MFJ 9040 with the Voltage adjusted to 4 Watts
output. I have about 2/3 finished a " slatboard ( wooden chassis ) " 12A6
transmitter under construction and all over the top of my operating desk. At
300 Volts, hopefully I should be able to get 3 Watts + out of it. Details to
follow. The tank coil is wound on a 1/2 inch PVC " collar " and is fixed
attached to the two wooden slats, so I will wind the coil for 40 instead of 80
meters. If y'all hear a signal that sounds like a canary bird, it may be me!

John K5ZU, you had a good signal herein Cleveland ( Liberty County ) Texas
about 55 miles NE of Houston. Welcome to the group. We hope to hear you "
weakly " ( That's a pun! ) for weekly!

73,

Sam Neal N5AF

Hi Gang.
Well as planned the early net was from the front porch with the KX3 @3
Watts and W3EDP antenna. Not too shabby. Sam from TX was a really good
signal and I'm guessing that the antennas East/West orientation favored his
QTH. Bill was thundering in so I'm quite pleased with the expirement. Thank
you all for participating. The late net was the usual set-up, FT920 @3
watts into the 1/2 size G5RV in the attic. All in all a very good evening
and thanks also for your patience while I was using the good ole' pencil
and paper!

Terry,
Sorry I missed everyone. Not a peep heard here in FL on 40m from any of you. Up the band a bit at 7.123 another net was pounding in with lots of nearby stations participating.� Sunrise Net I believe... K4VRT was really strong here and even with attenuation on the HB1B could hear him when I opened the filter a bit.

We also have a storm brewing and QRN was about S-7 or 8 so it was not a good time for 40m here. I jumped to 30m and it was really good. Had a nice QSO with a SC station and called it a morning.�

Maybe next time...

I'll be out portable with a HB1-B and EFHW sloped your direction this morning. Stretch your ears over this way so we can say hello from down by Lake Fredrica. There is a SE area net that meets on a nearby freq and past attempts with my Sierra were not successful. The HB1B has twice the output so we'll see how that works. 40m Band usually shuts down around 10 AM EDT so it cuts it close, but worth a try.

Hi Gang.
Well as planned the early net was from the front porch with the KX3 @3 Watts and W3EDP antenna. Not too shabby. Sam from TX was a really good signal and I'm guessing that the antennas East/West orientation favored his QTH. Bill was thundering in so I'm quite pleased with the expirement. Thank you all for participating. The late net was the usual set-up, FT920 @3 watts into the 1/2 size G5RV in the attic. All in all a very good evening and thanks also for your patience while I was using the good ole' pencil and paper!
Here's the results:
Early net:
N0YJ Bert KS
KV6Z Bill OK
WA9PWP Paul WI
N5AF Sam TX
K5ZU John AR
And here's the late net:
WA9PWP Paul WI
W2SH Chas NJ
KV6Z Bill OK
N5AF Sam TX
AA5CO Bruce OK
​Special mention to John, K5ZU, a first timer on 40, thanks for checking in John, we're glad to have you along. Welcome and please come again.
