Big Brutus draws near... Roll call?

ka0ncr
 

Hi Group,


I am looking forward to the Brutus bash this year, and its drawing close!  


Was out in the warm weather yesterday getting the van ready and a few other

things done that needed doing.


I have reservations made for Thursday night thru Saturday night.   I  may

not get there until Friday  night, depending on some things going on.


Wondering if we could have a roll call of who is going to make it, when you plan to

arrive, ect. 


Hope to see a large turn out, and some new faces!

Hi all,
Hi Mike,

My SS-40HT is working great except for the tuning range is from 6983
to 7037 kHz.
You are the second builder to report that range. We currently don't know why the tuning range is lower than it should be. I've got a kit coming to check thing out. In the meantime, if you have a 470 pF NP0 capacitor, try putting that in series with the 5.6 uH L9 inductor and let me know how far that moves to lower end tuning. If you don't have that value, try any value you have from 220 pF to 470 pF.

Any ideas how I can shift the low end above 7000 kHz?

See above.

Thanks,

Maybe three different crystals.  Not sure and don't own one, but you can only pull crystals so far.  At some point the crystal frequency must be taken into consideration.  I'm not sure this helps.

Reduce the value of the RFC in series with the VXO crystals by half a microhenry should do it.

Subject: [4sqrp] Result of survey

 

If you recall, I asked if anyone had strong opinions regarding whether
the SSS is held on the 2nd Sunday of September (in conflict with Brutus)
or the 3rd Sunday (no Brutus conflict). Here are the results of that
informal survey:

The opinions could be grouped into the following two subgroups:

1) Don't let Brutus push you around. Keep the SSS on the 2nd Sunday.

2) It's only one week different. Please move the SSS to the 3rd Sunday.

I counted the ballots (twice) and here are the results:

Number of people wanting to keep the SSS on the 2nd Sunday: 1

Number of people wanting to move the SSS to the 3rd Sunday: 1

This hotly contested survey ended up in a tie! I decided to only count
the votes of those who usually participate in the SSS. The indisputable
winner, using that criterion, is that we should move the SSS to the 3rd
Sunday of September.

So, barring any cries for a recount (hanging chad, etc), the Second
Sunday Sprint will be held on the third Sunday of the month, which is
the 20th. For this month only, consider it the September Sunday Sprint
(SSS), not the Second Sunday Sprint.

My thanks to all (both) of the voters for their participation. I guess
Brutus is just too big to ignore. I let him push the contest into the
following week. I will send my usual reminders during the week of the 13th.

John, AA0VE
