Hello,

I have a factory built Oak Hills Research WM-2 QRP Watt meter that fell off the shelf, and like Humpty Dumpty, it had a greart fall. The fall knocked the clear plastic cover off of the meter, but the meter still works fine. There is no damage to the meter movement. I replaced the old meter with a new one Satureday, and should anyone want it, they can have the old meter free of charge and I pay the shipping.

So there is no mistake, this is the meter only, with the clear plastic cover removed and long gone, and is not the entire WM-2 QRP Wattmeter.

73,

Sam Neal  N5AF



FS Pig Rig

George H. Gates
 

 
Piggy 132 is for sale
 Well broken in as I have made over 125 contacts. Even a few DX. It uses the orig xtals and xmits on 7030.7. I added a tuneable audio filter. There is a picture of this rig on the pig site. Since that picture I did add a switch to turn the filter on or off. I found the filter handy to peak the sigs of guys who call me off freq. I also added the latest keyer chip. Everything works as it should. I am ready to build my next kit now.  Price is $65.00 shipped con. U.S. only.

Not sure how to use Google plus yet; what I have on there now is purely by accident...

Or maybe some of you are already using hangouts for video discussions. Let me know what you all think?

New kit....

Congratulations on the new kit. I was wondering how easy it would be to convert to thirty meters. I already have a shedload of forty meter qrp wirelesses......

I would love to build this kit - but I don't want to own one as I have A KX3 and it's sooooo nice.
If anyone wants one of the Cyclone 40's but doesn't feel comfortable with the build - contact me and I'll build it for free.

Re: HF Poor / 6M Good

Jim Sheldon
 

Don't know if there is a specific CW calling frequency, but most of the CW activity was from about 50.080 through 50.110.  SSB is usually from 50.125 (calling freq) and up.  LOTS of great sporadic E activity over the last few days so if you have 6M capability, even with simple wire antennas, jump on the band.  It usually opens up after noon and runs well into the evening hours when it's open.  Also, check out the website ---  http://www.dxmaps.com/spots/map.php?Lan=E&Frec=50&ML=M&Map=NA&DXC=N&HF=N&GL=N  which will show the openings on a map and where the activity is.

I had fun working the Alabama guys in their party today and the the Maritime guys too , but what I have really been digging for was enough museum / ships for a certificate . My log is mixed modes on all bands from 80 through 6 . Even getting some WSPR time in .

One band would be up and another dead . Really strange day for propagation , but still managed a few contacts . All 3 of the ship museums mentioned earlier . Still not quite done for the evening , may dig up one or two more that I need.
