Hi Mike,
I have several cases (8 batteries to the case - Medical portable X-Ray pullouts normally about a year old and all tested good) including one case where all 8 batteries are essentially still new.  They are 9 amp hour medical grade, un-spillable, and can be charged and/or operated in any position.  They are not very large and weigh about 4 lbs each.  I sell them for $10 each or 2/$15, but UPS shipping would be prohibitive (can't be shipped US Postal Service).  If you can find someone to "mule" them down to your area, let me know, arrangements could be made.  I run one of these on my KX3 and can get a couple days normal operation out of it if I don't transmit RTTY or PSK and stick to CW at 5 watts.  I ran one down running 10 watts out on and it gave me almost a whole day before the KX3 decided the voltage was low enough and dropped to 5 watts.

This will probably unlease a malestrom of replies...sorry but I really value the differning opinions...

Among the various battery options I have when in the RV is to charge batts to take with me if I decide to stroll up the hills.  Previous discussions this were informative, but I now have one issue that is very specific.

If I want a SLAB, what are the suggestions for the lightest, smallest ones?  I have surfed the 'net and seen a lot of ads, but I would like to have the opinions of real users.  Will be hitting the RV road in two weeks and want a SLAB to supplement my AA 12 volt packs. My XMTR uses 1-2 Amps and receive is about 350mA.

Actually, the number of members is displayed on the website.  Your 'member number' does not necessarily correlate to the number of members.

    We are still 16 members short of a 1000 members.

Re: TX project advice

Bill Cromwell
 

Hi Jon,

Do you have a suitable filter around which to build transmitter? the TX does NOT need a CW bandwidth filter. there are many SSB bandwidth filters ar hamfests and on eBay. Maybe a list member has one you can get. The 3.395 mc filters for Heath and other radios seem common as dirt. Once you have that filter the rest is much easier.

You might have good luck with a phasing SSB rig, too. A combination of of fixed frequency (at IF frequency) and less stringent, homebrew ladder filter can give pretty good results (or so others have testified).

I finally have my 40 meter DC receiver in band and working well and the helically wound vertical is all but done. While I want to tweak the AF amp and do some filtering my biggest concern is actually getting on the air before FD.

To this end, I need to build a transmitter. My specifications are... 40 meter, under 5 watts, simple design, commonly/currently available and inexpensive or easily manufactured parts, and now the kicker SSB/CW.

A tall order but hey, you guys, and gals, are the ones who would know. I am skilled in assembly but my EE/RF design skills are still in there infancy. Any suggestions in this area would be greatly appreciated.

SSS Net this Sunday

John Lonigro
 

This is your 2nd reminder. The monthly Second Sunday Sprint is this Sunday, from 7:00 - 9:00 pm CDT. If anyone needs a refresher on the rules, I can send them out Sunday or you can go to 4SQRP.COM and read them there. I sure hope most of the mother's day festivities are over by the time the net starts. If not, there might be more activity than usual toward the end of the 2-hour sprint.

Since Dayton is rapidly approaching, I implore you to get your scores to me as soon after the contest as possible and definitely before you head East (or whichever direction Dayton is from your QTH).

John AA0VE

Re: BATT

Michael McEwen
 

Check out the Casita web site or come and see ours...I compared about a half dozen 15-20 ft. brands.  Unless you want to spend big bucks for an Airstream, the Casita 17 is a heck of a TT for two people, one dog, and my QRP gear (and 2/440) in the truck, of course.  It has a real suspension, not just a straight axle, and fine brakes...and the inside amenities are excellent.  I think we paid about $20K for ours...delivered from the TX factory to our SW OK QTH.

My QRP ops from inside are great...plenty of 12V and it has a 110V charger for the big Batt.  I operate from the dining table and all gear goes into one of the compartments over it...minimal XYL QRM...
