Subject: [4sqrp] FYI: SOME NICE EQUIPMENT AND SOFTWARE

Hey guys! Perhaps there is an app for ham radio after this computer install story:

My DELL XPS-420 (~ 4 years old) crashed about two weeks ago. Got it running again after many hours of "cleaning" the hard drive but only partial reloaded it so far. Since I had Trend-Micro protection, don't think it was a virus or failed HD sectors. It was likely the loading of a QRQ program called QRQcw; I had taken a gamble knowing that the QRQcw site clearly noted that it had not been tested for VISTA op system. LIve and learn! Computer locked up right after that. BUT PROBLEMS SOMETIMES LEAD TO OPPORTUNITIES/ AND USUALLY! So...

Ordered a new high-end DELL OPTIPLEX 7010 with system 7. Man it's FAST! Initial loading of software was a pain tho, particularly setting up the TREND-MICRO WORRY-FREE spyware. I was getting more cranky when I discovered that Windows 7 does not come with a mail client, only web-mail. So googled the web for such and found rave reviews on a now very popular POSTBOX program. WOW, easy on the pocketbox, straight down load, and IT AUTOMATICALLY FOUND MY MAIL ACCOUNT INFO CONFIGURING IT AND PRESENTED ME A MESSAGE "ready to go." Cool. Now not so cranky!

Deciding I wanted to be better backed up too, I picked up a WD external hard drive of Office Depot. Started to cranky again when there seemed to be no instructions with it. I plugged it in to the front SS-USB port and it SELF-INSTALLED THE CONTROL SOFTWARE ON THE NEW COMPUTER AND SAID, "YOU ARE READY TO GO." Whee, not cranky any more.

It occured to me that we builders/designers of ham stuff might take note. Let's embed our gadgets with an SS-USB port and internal micro-controller and when we plug the new gadget into our rig and computer it self installs. Wheeeeee   wouldn't that be cool?

Uncle Phil, W0XI.............hope to see some of you at dayton; we're packed early and almost ready to go. 72!


Re: Pen under construction

Stephen Farthing
 

What a coincidence, as I read this EMail I am loading "Pig in a Pen" on to my ITunes library. It's the "Old and In the Way" version with Vassas Clements, Jerry Garcia, David Grisman, John Kahn and Peter Rowan, recorded live at The Boarding House, San Francisco in 1973. 

I sure miss my trips to the States, FDIM, Pacificon, Ozarkicon and the music sessions.

I just heard that song the other day with Jerry Garcia and Old and in the Way. :-)

Bluegrass is fun to play. I play guitar, but my fingerstyle is terrible - don't practice enough with all this radio stuff getting in the way.

Connecting the guitar with electronics, I've nearly finished a vacuum tube tremolo pedal to present to a friend at Hamvention next month.

Re: HI-PER-MITE parts question

Nick-WA5BDU
 

I sure did.  Now two years later I've forgotten a lot of what I learned preparing for that talk. ;^)

Actually, I still use LTspice a lot but it does have its complexities, as all SPICE programs do.

Anyway, I finally beat my analysis of the HI-PER-MITE into shape such that I'm not too ashamed to show it and have posted it on the 4SQRP Yahoo Group's site.  I created a new folder under "files" for the LTSpice files.  Take an look and if there are any major problems, let me know.

Anyway, old buddy, old pal would you like to share what you have modeled of the HY-PER-MITE.

Hi Dale,
Thanks, but Terry is already mailing me a couple of the ones that were ordered in error when they first got parts for the 4S-Link kits.  I don't need more than a few of them to act as bumpers on the Raspberry Pi module to keep from things getting shorted when I plug in external modules.

Ricky Skaggs is amazing on this piece, as well as all his others.  I think there's a U tube video with him on the mandolin, backed up by some outstanding musicians.   It is indeed fassttt!

“I got a pig at home in a pen
   Corn to feed him on
   All I need's a pretty little girl
   To feed I'm when I'm gone

 

Going up on a mountain
To sow a little cane
Raise a barrel of sorghum
Sweet little Liza Jane

 

Black clouds arising
Sure sign of rain
Put that old gray bonnet
On little Liza Jane

 

Yonder comes that gal of mine
How do you think I know
Know her by that gingham gown
Hanging down so low

 

Bake them biscuits baby
Bake em good and brown
When you get them biscuits baked
We're Alabama bound”

Thanks!  I'll put 'em to good use.  BTW, I'm working on a Raspberry Pi project to use it with the FLDIGI program as a digital mode controller and logger for my KX3.  Assuming I'm successful, a "Banner" article will be forthcoming (a 4S-Link might wind up between the Pi and the radio).

SMT building ideas...

ka0ncr
 

Hi Group,


I thought that I would pass along this link to a web site with a video by a guy that has some interesting ideas on making SMT building less of a chore...


http://dangerousprototypes.com/2012/07/12/tips-on-speeding-up-smd-part-placement/


Check out the vid.. Some of it is very interesting, and he seems to know what he is talking about, that is, if you can drink enough high sugar cola to be able to keep up with what he is saying! ;>

I have used the vacuum placement tool idea for smt, using a modified fish tank air bubbler pump as a vacuum.. seems to work well.

I also have tried the USB microscopes and web cams, but just the past couple of weeks have gotten in a couple of old "document presenters" off e-bay, which seem to work well for this. They have a number of featuers that are helpful, one of which is you dont need a pc to run the web cam software.. it just displays on a TV or VGA monitor!

If anyone is interested in the Document presenters, drop me a line and I can let you know what I have found about the two types of units I just got. Both were under $35 each.. so I didn't think it was to big of a risk!

73 - and I hope to see a bunch of 4sqrp groupies at FDIM this year!

Don't work for me, my 4S-Link came with the big feet.  Now I gotta find some of the smaller ones so I can keep my Gertboard IO from hitting the Pi's USB connector.  BTW, I've succeeded in getting a model B Pi to actually decode signals reliably using FLDIGI, but you have to set Overclocking to HIGH and it's best to do a cold install & reconfigure of the OS with whatever external sound device you're going to use plugged in at initial OS boot so it picks up all the drivers/necessary files right away.  Saves a whole lot of trouble identifying the device and finding the requisite driver packages for alsa.  If you don't overclock the Pi, it decodes very erratically.  I haven't tried transmit yet as I have to figure a way to derive PTT.  I suppose I could just use VOX on the KX3 but haven't tried it yet.

Pen under construction

Lee Mairs (SAG) <lmairs@...>
 

I've progressed to building a pen for the PigRig #157 using a label provided by Terry.

My question is: Does one print out the front and back panel labels and glue them to the TenTec box? If yes, what type of glue, and are there any magic tricks about doing this?
