Early 40m net

Wayne Dillon
 

OK, my dad once told me it takes a man to own up to his mistakes, so...
Like I said I checked the resonance marks on the ASTU, nothing changed. Checked the antenna for critterization, nothing there. Looked again at the ASTU - yep, it was switched to Dummy Load (dummy being the operative word there!). Egg on face here. But this much I will tell ya'll, I won't EVER make that mistake again (until the next time!!!)
Sorry folks, let's try again at 01:30, please...

I've just checked the antenna, no critterization and the resonance marks on the ASTU have not changed so I'm guessing it's the band.

Survey completed.  Here in G-land we had Heathkits manufactured in the UK by Daystrom to suit our own regs and mains voltages – wonderful pieces of kit they were, which set me up when first licenced with transmitters, vfo’s, virtually all my test equipment plus great Hi Fi.  Never built one that didn’t work 1st time.  Stupidly sold it all off when I went QRT back in the 70’s – how I would love it all back now I’m active again!    Paul, G3OSR

Re: Heathkit

 

That was quite interesting. Some questions required some thought and
clearly this survey was not the brainchild of some run of the mill
marketing lackey. I hope this means there is some serious thought
behind Heath and I'm truly intrigued now.

Heath probably has the most recognizable brand in the history of amateur
radio (some will argue that, I know) and I think they realize there is
great value to the Heathkit brand. Done correctly, and where it gets
interesting for me is their question about the Maker movement, I think
they can be very successful.

I wish them success.

I sent this direct to Terry, but sharing with the group...

Hi Terry,

The MI QRP has put out silk screen T-shirts that I think cost about $5-7 and sell them for $15. You probably seen a few at Dayton. These are generic with a saying like  Witts Over Watts. I don't recall what the new ones have on them. The club is identified but no logo. Anyway they are done locally.  To me, you get what you pay for...the lettering starts to wear off after a few months, etc.

I don't know the details on their embroidered  sport shirt, but they cost (sell for) about $35, I'm guessing. The person's name and call sign are embroidered around the MIQRPCLUB logo.  

As for hats and, yet to be mentioned, badges, I think that most hams would like their call included so I think that someone like the Sign Man of Baton Rouge would be a good source for that if people want that or he might be able to screen (?) 4SQRP generic hats. If the Sign Man had our logo, he could make badges for members who would like them.

Dave, from ham threads, http://www.hamthreads.com/ used to live in Michigan and his products are good. I just threw away a denim shirt that I bought from him about 10 years ago... lots of wear. He gives a quantity discount. But there is an initial expense to set up the logo.

I'm sure lots of towns have embroidery and print shops that are also capable of meeting the need.  Probably would be a good idea to define what goes on the items. Logo#1 for hats and Logo#4 from Logo and Banner web page or something new. Maybe put it out there for people to accept or redesign?
