Ebay AD9850 DDS Modules

WA0ITP
 

FYI

Sounds like the low AD9850 DDS module prices are over or nearly so, read
KD1JV's [AT_Sprint] group post below. Glad I bought a few extra a while back.
Prices are still currently around $6 - $7 but is looks like they are heading up.
No more $3 - $4 bargains could be found.

| Speaking of the MBDC, if you haven't bought your AD9850 module yet, you'd
| best do it soon. It looks like they are running out of these and the price
| is going up as a result. The place I reference in the manual for the 9850
| module now wants $20 for one. One place had it listed for $150! And look out
| for shipping, some want $50 to ship.

Re: RE -A NEW KEY AND AS HAPPY AS A FAT HOG IN THE SUN

According to the government, $1 in 1980 bought what $2.83 buys now, so an unbuilt HW-8 carries a bit of a premium on Ebay, but not really outrageous. Now if we look at radio performance per dollar, well that would be a very different story!

I know for me 08:30 or even 09:00 would be better for me.

I work the afternoon shift. And I can’t come home and go

Right to bed, I have to unwind a little and that takes me

Until 01:00 or 01:30.

Congrats on the fine Retro Rig, the HW-8. 
The parts are big enough to touch with your fingers and see with your eyes. 

The HW8 invites tinkering and add-on HB projects. 
First I added a Air-Column-Tuned Audio filter.
Then designed a Noise Limiter and a Butterworth Filter. 
Now that I can work S1 signals, 
I need about 3 more Watts to make a full QRP, 
and poke through the noise better.  

When I want to see what it was like in 1958  (my first station)  
then I unplug my devices and run the HW8 barefoot with just my 1940 Bug.  

You will find that the HW8 makes you feel like your are 21 again, 
for a while. 

If I hear a CQ by WA5HRC will certainly answer back.

That is to gain access to a pin or screw, ( I forget which) that cinches the bottom contact assembly to the fulcrum arm. I've sent you a photo via direct email George.

GM George,

Don't think I'd spray stuff inside the Flameproof. But you do have one of the
very best straight keys out there. If it's acting normal, dont mess with it,
especially don't take it apart. There have been mournful posts describing the
number of parts and the difficulty of reasembly.

Enjoy the key, its a dandy.
