Pig Rig arrival

Charlie Vest
 

The pig has landed . Pig number 172 landed this morning in Oklahoma .

Unfortunately there is a hamfest this afternoon/evening and tomorrow in Claremore , OK. , so after I rest up , probably will begin work on the pig rig starting Sunday .

Looking forward to putting a kit together for a change .

| Thot my problem was solved. The next day I agn got a report I was xmitting all
over the 40 meter band. Listen on my KX3 and sure enough my troubles are back.
Connect dummy load. Still the same. Change keyer to straight key mode and viola
now only xmitting on 7030.7. Go bk to using paddles and all OK. Turn rig off and
reconnect ant, and turn on rig. Now am all over the band. Switch to straight key
mode and all is Ok. So now go back to using keyer with paddles and all Ok. Try
turning rig off and on. Agn I must go to straight key first and then to paddles.
So something in the key line is causing this! Rats I hate to have to remove it
again from the enclosure! 72 George/W2BPI

I just received a note that the Stonecastle has lowered it's rate for their
Jacuzzi rooms and Executive Suites. The price for a Jacuzzi room is now $95, and
the price for an Executive suite is $115. These are ~$25 reductions from the
earlier price. Thought you might want to know in case you'd like to upgrade.

Usual disclaimers...

I was saddened to not see my #154 in the PO Box yesterday.  Although the pain was relieved some what by three other packages with "stuff" ordered from China.

K8IQY PVXO and Other Crystal Measuring Info

Jim Kortge
 

All,

I've had several inquiries about the PVXO that I designed many moons ago to measure crystal parameters, so that they could be used in crystal filters. That project, along with the Crystal Drive Circuit, are located on my web site. Here is the URL:

http://k8iqy.com/testequipment/pvxo/pvxopage.htm

The NJ QRP group at one time offered a PVXO kit, but those sold out a long time ago. But, if you ask on QRP-L, someone might have a kit they didn't build, or a completed kit they would sell. We never kitted the Crystal Drive Circuit, as it took way longer than anyone expected to sell the 100 PVXO kits. We decided not to another "limited popularity" kit. :-)

The paper that I presented at Atlanticon is also available for download at the above URL.

Have fun.......

72,

Jim, K8IQY


Re: Wed. night PSK checkins

I'm doing the research now Terry,
Any suggestions will be welcomed. I can of course use the software that comes with the KX3. It works great for idle chats and simple qso's but if I decide to get into a contest I'll need something else. I'm presently looking at FLdigi and N1MM.  Any suggestions?

Well it was tough on dick as NC but at least he got my call sign.....whew!
Had a nice signal on Dick but couldn't hear any of the others so I was shy about transmitting.
The PSK via the paddle feature on the KX3 worked but not something I would want to do a regular basis. Even sending 35+ wpm it is slow. Now it's on to the keyboard and trying for a sweep of all the 4sQRP nets.
 
I forgot to give my name Dick, I get it right next time. Thanks for the patience.

Piggie sustains injury

random.path
 

My little Piggie (145 I think) came earlier this week, and I've been a-building it. Unfortunately, I got a little too much in the spirit, and in ham-handed fashion broke one of the toroids. That was an oinker. Oh well, replacements ordered, and if anyone else needs an FT37-61 toroid, I'll have some extras (minimum order was 25 of them for $7.00).
