Re: A niche not filled

How about one of those orphaned ARC-5 transmitters that neither covered 80 or
40 meters ( with a good receiver to determine frequency.

Robert;
I think your idea of a simple 5W, 5-channel 60 meter CW rig is a great idea!

I have a J-5-A flame-proof - looks kinda like a Skoal can. It hasn't started
any fires yet! I have another flame-proof but haven't hooked it up yet.

Good job, Bill
You new flame proof was sounding good!
The Qrn was tough, but my nvis for 40 helped.
I was prepared to relay for Woody, I had him solid at 5-5 to 5-8 but you
guys got Er done!
What is the proper Q code for relay?
We discussed this before, but I can't remember?

Several persistent stations made it in:

WA9PWP Paul Stoughton WI
N5AF Sam Cleveland, TX (On his 1 watt 6V6 transmitter.)
KD0WF Jim Columbia, MO
WD9F Woody Springfield, IL (This guy has patience!)
AC0BQ Johnny Lebo, KS (Best copy of the night.)
WN0I Andy Jefferson City, MO

And I barely missed another one just under the noise.
We tried as hard as we could, but it was a no-go.
I think there was a "U" in the call? Maybe not.
A real heart breaker. Next week for sure.

Hello,

I monitor the boat-anchor/QRP frequencies almost all day every day and ran
across Butch KA5HRF in Lexington Texas on 7110 running his Ameco AC-1. It
sure sounded good. Be on the look out for him. He is rock-bound.

I am going to regret this but I need to sell my unbuilt SS-40 kits. I
bought them from the club a couple months ago and none of the parts
have been removed from the bags. Both are just as I received from the
club.

Price: $100 and I will pay shipping. Paypal preferred.

Not so great here, but also not helped by my recently changed antenna situation, as described elsewhere, and of course my 70 minutes of increased daylight.

Terry was 229, and Bill not much better.  Just for giggles I dropped my callsign; just once and then QRT.

Well, I'm glad to know I was loud in Elmira, NY, but I sure wasn't loud farther away.

Bill, KV6Z, was barely 449 here.  I dropped my callsign a couple of times, but no luck.

As previously explained my 76' up and 90' out inverted L came down when the tree supporting it died and was removed last month.  The only antenna up now is a 270' sloping dipole at an average height of 45'.  It works well out to about 400 miles, but not so for kilomile distances.

Hi Mal,
 
Well, we gave it a try.
I looked at the real-time lightning map just before the net and knew it was going to be a bit of a struggle.
 
 
I got Woody one letter at a time and never heard Charles at all.
Well - that's radio for ya. HI.
I was happy to get the ones that I did.

                                WD9F also was great here.
                                WN0I was another 459

  Bill you were a 339 on your peaks here in NY and it was demented with the static crashes but I stuck with it. There was another NY station trying at the beginning of the net W2SH who was very loud here.

 Guess no one heard me at the end for a relay, but then again I'm sure I was hearing things (or not hearing) from all that static!
