Bill et al,

I have my K0N stuff already packed and I assure you and any others that are going to have the pleasure of attending OzarkCon that K0N will be QRV and available on any legal frequency. You name it and K0N will QSY so that you will have a shot at winning the QSL card drawing at the end of OCon.

So there you go guys and gals, pack a rig and a bad dummy load and head for Branson, MO and the Dummy Load competition. The prize isn’t that much but think of the pride in being involved in the competition and also being a bit lucky:-)

According to the pre-registration this will be the biggest OzarkCon so far. It gets bigger and better every year!!!!

Wow, that's excellent! Very good on 40m, congratulations!

A few weeks ago, I worked N1EU, from England, with a RockMite on 20m, powered by a PP3. This is the second time I've worked Barry with the RockMite, the first time was whilst using a very flat battery and power output was measured at 89mW. My certificate from QRP ARCI records the contact at 36,393 miles per watt! Radio is magic!

On another occasion, I worked W4ZV with a RockMite 30.

All fun stuff!

Bill if you are a SKCC member you could get a certificate. If not go to www.skccgroup.com and get your free membership number then the next time you do it you will have a nifty certificate for wall paper.

Congratulations on a fine accomplishment. My friend Pat KD4OBQ and I are both planning on building one of those single transistor radios..

Yes Bill,

It was indeed me.  That 569 RST occurred a few times, but each was only for a couple of seconds.  The QSB in NJ was enormous and your sig would then go to 229 or worse.

Heard you call the Thursday morning net at 1305Z and another CQ two minutes later, to which there was a reply, I think from WQ5RP.

Not worth my transmitting, so QRT.

Snagged a couple:
KB4QNR     Charles     Lexington, KY
????            I have a feeling the second one was Chas in NJ. I got my RST (569) very clearly but his 239 made copy very rough and never got the call.


A very difficult night for radio here. I wish those storms would move out of here.

Re: 4S-Link question

I think I got it figured out. My problem was
the difference between the labeling and the schematic.


Where the schematic says "speaker" the label says "phones".
Where the schematic says "Comp. Headphones" the label says "speaker"


I think a bit of touch-up on the schematic and I would
be 100% hunky dory. But I did figure it out.

At least that has been the convention that I have had in my mind for a long time.
If you want to feed an iPOD audio to a computer, you would connect the iPOD speaker (or line out) to the computer Line-In (or Mic). The same convention should be used for digital interfaces.

In other words, the convention says what the output or input is to the device that is being labeled - and not to whatever designation on the device to which it is to be connected.

It seems the 4S-Link has differed from the usual conventions - and that can cause confusion.

The Key Jack is connected to your rig''s key jack.
The mic/ptt jack is connect to the your rigs mic jack.
The Key jack is connected to you rig's PTT jack.
All connectors used on the 4S-Link are standard ⅛” (3.5mm) stereo jacks
You will lhave to fabricate a custom mic connector to fit your rig.

Check out the Theory of Operation section of the manual as the PTT line may be handled differently in various software programs.

I bought a 4S-Link already assembled, from another gentleman.

I'm looking at the schematic and the instructions online.
The schematic shows two connections to the computer:
headphones and mic. And three connections to the
radio: key, mic, speaker.

The unit itself has one side labeled computer with
mic and speaker ports; one side labeled transceiver
with three ports key, mic, phones.

I'm confused about the transciever-side:phones
and the computer-side:speaker.

I guess I could open the thing up and trace out
the circuit, but I'm hoping someone can just
tell me which hole is for my computer audio output
and which hole for my radio audio output.

Thanks all,
