Well, before you bug Diz, I have an invoice with #172 on it.� But I do not have the kit yet.� It was probably a typo of some sort.

Re: NS-40 advice requested

Brian,

Your assumption is correct! I noticed that you posted this to the 4sqrp reflector which is fine. However, there is a Yahoo group dedicated to the NS-40 and everything that pertains to this neat little transmitter. If you have not joined the group I invite you to do so. You can google it or there is a button to click on, on the page where you ordered the NS-40 kit.

Of course, most of the members of that group are also 4sqrp guys so you will do pretty well here also!! There are quite of few files and photos on the yahoo site not to mention the archive of all the postings and discussions!

Enjoy that NS-40!!

Yes, I had done that. On the SAVXO I used the small end of the paper
clip and left enough length on one side so it extended out a ways
from the crystals. I slipped the clips around the middle to the
crystals with the end sticking out and soldered a wire across those
ends. A wire was then connected between the crystals and the ground
hole. Sounds like your idea is similar.

Re: crystal sockets or mounting pins

Tim N9PUZ
 

If you need a more robust technique also remember that machine pin type sockets stack easily. You could take another similar piece and solder the crystal to it so you are not stressing the crystal leads each time you insert or remove it.

Another good use for these strips is as sockets and connectors in your construction projects. Rather than solder all of the leads from switches and pots to the circuit board you can attach them to a socket and then plug that into a second socket mounted on your PCB. If you ever have to remove the board for repairs it's easy to unplug things.

That was a nice trick. I already looked out for sockets. But that is a better solution. Thanks.

NS-40 advice requested

brian_w5ye <brian_w5ye@...>
 

I have just completed the NS-40 kit. I purposely have not soldered the xtal in place yet. I am thinking that I should build the VXO next, and I assume it will plug in the same holes in the board. Am I on track here? I don't want to be "stuck" on 7.030 all the time.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Brian - W5YE

Gm Chuck:

Thanks for the pics to clarify the crystal sockets. Did you suggest in the first post a way to make a grounding clip from a paper clip?
 My thoughts would be to bend the end at a right angle and then solder it in the grounding bond hole at the correct height to hook across the top of the crystal?
Thanks

Hi Terry,

Your offer is really nice. Could I get a label for March, s/n 159?

Also, have you found out how much the crystals and shipping will cost?

Thanks again for doing this,

Re: Diode sub

Rick Bennett
 

I am guessing the issue is the capacitance.  The MBR1100 is about 60 pF at 10 volts reverse where the 1N5711 is only about 0.8 pF at 10 volts reverse.  I know the 1N5711 is good for RF detector circuits in lieu of a germanium diode.

de KC0PET, Rick


 

Ge guys here is the reply I received from Diz later today.

"The MBR1100 is NOT a sub for the 1N5711"
I guess that about says it all!
Thanks 72
