I can try printing one for you!   I'll run it and let you know how it goes and send it to you.

Subject: [4SQRP] Reduction Drive

Most of us have built small rigs with potentiometer/polyvaricon tuning that was horrendously fast and awkward.   I am in such a dilemma with a little homebuilt rig that I love but it's waay too twitchy on the  tuning.   I've been searching around for an answer and think I've found it in a reduction drive tuning knob.  Something like this. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3562490      Problem is that it's 3D printed and I dont have the knowledge, or the equipment, to produce one.  So I'm wondering if a member of the Group can produce one for me.  If so, pse contact me via email directly.

I could cut down the tuning range (and still stay centered) with series caps on either side of the polyvaricon, but want to be able to use nearly all of the CW portion of the band (80M) - but more slowly.

TIA, really appreciate any help.

Second Sunday Sprint

John Lonigro
 

Don't forget this Sunday is the March edition of the Second Sunday Sprint.  Since Sunday is the 1st day of Daylight Saving Time, I will remind you that this contest's LOCAL time is not changing.  It will still be 7:00 - 9:00 pm central time.  But that is now CDT, not CST.  If you go by UTC, the sprint time will now be 0000-0200Z Monday.  Over the winter, it was 0100-0300Z.

Hope I didn't confuse anyone.

72,
John, AA0VE

Having posted the original quest to start this thread, I suppose I should officially ask to be added to the list to be notified when the Soup'er Up'er is again available ... in fact, I think I will want two of them!  Thank you!

No boomers but lots of QRN.  Only thing I heard on 40m was K7KGM and other 7's running a net on 7.122.  Listening on 80 now but lots of QRN.

Stay SAFE...in every way.
