80M Cw Net

WA0ITP
 

Wow and double wow!  80 is vy noisy tonight.  Paul and Joe were teh only stations I could drag out of the noise.  Thanks to them for hanging in until I got there calls.  There were two more that close but not quite copyable.  One had a Q in  his call.  Sir guys, even with the NR and NB buttons punched, the rf gain down and the af gain up,  80M socked it to us tonight.

Hope 40M is ok  tomrrow morning.  Storms are predicted for the morning and again later in the afternoon.  So we'll have to play it by ear for the morning 7122 net.

I recently did the "Tuning Pot Retrofit", I believe successfully.

When I touched (by accident) my scope probe to the ground side of the

Since the audio mute line is supposed to mute the audio when the line
is grounded, I'm assuming the circuit is cadywhompus!!! Perhaps the
J310 is bad? I'm at a loss?

Any ideas???

John,

Which pot did you actually change, was it VR1 or VR2? It is important that I know that piece of information to be able to help you.

Another Jim Koryge masterpiece I think. The TX went together very well
with no problems and I hooked it up to the SS40 RX that I already had
working. It's also the first QSO I have had since getting back from
Ozarkcon.
