7122 and QRM

WA0ITP
 

Just curious,

At one time I thought that the voices that we heard on 7122 were Canadian hams
using SSB. But after looking at their band plan (below), I'm not so sure. It
looks like we should be sharing CW with them.

Anyone tuned them in or have any ideas as to what we may be hearing?

Canada
40 Metre Band - Maximum bandwidth 6 kHz
7.000 - 7.035 MHz - CW

7.035 - 7.050 MHz - Digital Modes

7.040 - 7.050 MHz - International packet

7.050 - 7.100 MHz - SSB

7.100 - 7.120 MHz - Packet within Region 2

7.120 - 7.150 MHz - CW

7.150 - 7.300 MHz - SSB and other wide band modes

Re: QRPometer mod

Tom Sevart
 

I've been thinking of putting sides on the QRPometer using scrap PC board, but that would make it harder to change the battery.

qrpometer enclosure

Ben Docter
 

Here is how I solved the exposed wiring of the meter. Radio Shack sells a project box that works. A little bit of whittling on the box and also on the corners of the bottom circuit board and the board fits in there. I added an extension wire to the battery and taped that to the bottom of the box. I also removed the meter, cut a hole in the cover of the box and put the meter and front of the meter into the top of the box. I also bought 4 shorter spacers so that I could screw the nuts back on the switches. A little effort and I have a functional meter box that can't be damaged. Ben K8AR

"I don't want to try to calculate the " smiles per dollar" 

Johnny, no a person never wants to go there, it is sobering to say the lease:-)  I did that for the pheasants brought home from a hunting trip to Nebraska back when I lived in NW OK.  I thought about not eating them but instead renting a safe deposit box for them.  Once you forgot what they cost to put on the table they were delicious. I still regret doing that calculation---very good lesson:-)

Tom,

Neat way to solve this weakness of the QRP-o-meter! In my opinion this the only problem with the meter.

Wow!!! Phil thank you for doing that antenna calculation for me. That is very interesting and intriguing. I would never have thought that my dipole would be a true blue nvis.

OT: For Sale, 1962 Vibroplex "Champion" Bug (changes)

Jim Sheldon
 

Paring down my collection just a bit -- On the block is a nice Vibroplex "Champion" model, vintage 1962 in good operating condition with an extra weight to slow it down some.  Base is grey crackle finish and there is a bit of rust on the screws that hold the rubber feet on and on the base under the feet.  I've cleaned it as well as possible with mineral spirits.  Owing to it's age, there are a few bits of the crackle finish that are missing or showing wear and some blemishes in the chrome plating.  This is totally normal on one that's this old.  I've had it on the air and it runs just fine.

This is listed on the Elecraft and Flying Pigs reflectors as well so if anyone is interested in it let me know soonest.  Off the list to keep the clutter down please.

I'm asking $100 and I'll pay the shipping.  Cash, USPS Money Order or PayPal (Gift or add 5%).

First "I'll take it" (by date/time on the email) gets right of first refusal.  Pictures available on request.

Re: Finally!

Very cool Steve, very cool! I see you pressed your T1 into service, isn't that just the neatest ASTU?. Anyhow, I was going to suggest that you box em up separately, the magic Box is so useful for the testing of other "stuff" that you may like to consider keeping it separate. Same with the NS40, I have a couple of intage receivers that I wanted to try with HB QRP transmitters, waited too long to order a magic box though - bummer! Just a thought.
As i said, nice job and Jim's designs are the best.

This afternoon, around 2137Z, I called CQ on 7.140 MHz and immediately, a big, booming W4MY returned to my call!  He gave me a 579 (he was 599 plus!) and a “solid” signal report. According to my QRPmeter, using a 12VDC battery, the NS-40 was putting out 5.8W to a 1.2:1 SWR on a wire loop antenna.  Boy oh boy, was I a happy ham!  Thanks Marty, W4MY!

 

All of the items worked flawlessly………so now to fine the time to put them into an enclosure as a “transceiver”.  Works so well, I’m just gonna’ hafta’ take ‘em out in the field!!!

Re: QRPometer mod

Johnny AC0BQ
 

Hello Tom
Good idea. 
I was one of the prototype builders and I made a plate from some old plexiglass I had and used longer screws with spacers to keep mine from shorting out!
Worked well, sounds like your solution was easier!!

I just recently built my QRPometer bought at Ozarkcon (shows how slow I
am to get around to building things) and put it together in a couple of
nights. Nice little kit but the thing I didn't like was having the
solder contacts on the bottom board exposed. The connections across the
battery terminals are also exposed, so if you accidentally lay your
QRPometer across a screwdriver or some other metal tool, you run the
risk of shorting it out. Plus I don't like the idea of getting all that
lead solder on my hands while using or carrying the QRPometer.

So I bought a cheap, thin black plastic folder at Wally World to match
the black PC board, set the QRPometer on top of it, and then cut out a
piece with a box cutter to fit the back of the meter. I then cut four
tiny X's for the screws, then put the thin piece of plastic on the back
and secured it with the four nuts. I then attached the four rubber feet
that came with the kit to the plastic. Now I don't have to worry about
laying my QRPometer on something metal and shorting anything out or
having to wash the lead off my hands after using it.
