George,

Any AC/USB plug-in will work fine. This is the kind that has no cord--you just plug a standard USB cable in. I have them in several strategic locations around the house. They seem to be everywhere these days, and pretty cheap.

It is in great working condition, and is good cosmetic condition.
It has some wear marks on it because it has been used in the field, but it has not been abused. It has two pricey options that are included.
They are a W4RT CW filter board and a BHI DSP filter from W4RT.
If purchased from W4RT these two options cost about $283.00.
It includes the mic,ac charger, a near new battery, a bail that sets it up off of the table,

I am asking $500.00 firm and you pay the shipping.

Re: The morning after.

Jim Sheldon
 

My Tri-Bander wouldn't move yesterday - the rotor was encased in a block of ice, but this morning after the sun shone on it for a couple of hours, I shook it by rapidly changing the direction and heard all the ice crack off of it.  Ice fell on the roof of my covered deck with a loud noise and now the antenna moves again - LOL.
 
On the way back from our Thursday ham breakfast in Wichita, I noticed some really pretty views of the ice on the trees.  Made it home and back with my camera.  Just barely made it back in time to catch the sun angle, but it got too high very quickly.   I've downloaded the pix to the computer, but haven't had a chance to check them yet.  Hope I got at least a couple of noteworthy ones anyway.
 
Sure was pretty and fortunately no damage at my QTH or on my street either.  I didn't take my Butternut down and went out this morning with a rubber mallet.  After the sun was on it for a while, I whanged the mounting pipe with the mallet and ran for cover from the falling ice!

Yesterday!  I watched the ice build up on my Butternut Vertical and I decided to take it down ( I have had to replace the lower section two times before, because of ice) it's not cheap!
I got a little smarter this time........I just cut the guy lines (50# test fishing line)....unhooked the ground wire and pulled the hole thing out of the ground. Always before I I tried to get on a ladder and remove to top half of the antenna. Not a good thing to try in an ice storm. Mr. obvious smacked some sense into me again.
So! that’s why I didn't check into the 4SQRP PSK net last night
And yes! tis a beautiful Morning.

New Kit From Four State

WA0ITP
 

Four State is pleased to introduce a new kit, the NM�S 4S-Link Digital
Interface. It was the Build Session kit at OzarkCon last weekend and is now
available for everyone. It is priced at only $40 for US orders, and may be
ordered on this page. http://www.4sqrp.com/kitIndex.php

The 4S-Link, pronounced "Force Link", is an easy to build, low parts count
interface that connects your computer to the digital radio world. With proper
software all sound card digital modes can be employed. Attaching the 4S-Link to
your computer is as easy as plugging into your sound card, a serial port or
adapter is NOT required.

A major feature is compatibility with Smart Phones, Tablets, and other devices
that can run a digital mode app. All that's neccessary is for you to make the
proper connections to your device's audio jacks. The 4S-Link has been designed
to accept the output of those devices.

The connections are clearly silkscreened on the exterior of the enclosure, so
there is no guessing which cable goes where. An attractive, enclosure is
included. It's easy to assemble and looks great, see the photopage for details.
ALL parts are included, jacks, knobs, enclosure, transformers, everything.
This is a complete kit.

Thank you for supporting the Four State QRP Group, all proceeds go to fund
Ozarkcon.
