RMR net Report

Dale Putnam
 

The Thurs edition of the Rocky Mountain Regional net met today, with an
outstanding number of checkins:

W3HZZ Phil - Ga
K0DTJ Brian - Ca
NS7E Art - Mn
WE9F Woody - IL
KA4RUR Fred - Mo
W2SH Chas - NJ
WA0ITP Terry - IA
KO1U Mark - Me
AF9W Bob - Az
NE5DL Dave - Tx
AD7BP Bob - Wa
AL7V Sam - AK
NO0N Barney - Mo

This is great!! What a super bunch of cw ops. All with good fists, at various speeds... and that is testing my ability to get to the speed to match at the right speed. Hope I got close. Sorry if I missed anyone.
You've might noticed that I called the net a bit early today, and it ran longer than usual. And later is ok with me, and starting a bit earlier is ok too.. in order to have enough room to check everyone in, and each have enough time to send at least a couple of transmissions. The more practice we get.. the better we are. Right?
The other neat thing that happened today.. is even with a temp antenna here, and an endfed long wire there... we had a check in from Alaska. He was being polite and waited until the checkin call left a bit of space. The QSB was tuff on Sam... but at least we got him.
So, until next Tuesday, have a wonderful weekend, and stay warm... even tho there was an 85 reported today, most temps were in the 40s and 50s.


Have a great day,

That's surprising, Paul!  #164 arrived here in Iola today.   Probably won't get around to building it for a couple of weeks tho!  Hopefully you'll get yours tomorrow!

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.

Re: To order a Pig Rig or not to order???

IF your going to be a real piggie, you must learn to wollow in it.

Otherwise, you may as well reserve a room in the chicken coop.

I never heard of having too many rigs.. :)

those
bucks :( Help me fellow piggies :)

Never hurts to have a good quality backup rig , that can be also battery powered , like the 817 , and the price is right .

Hello,

no chance. There were sometimes CW-signals coming out of the noise here in JN48MM, but no chance copying a call. Sorry, but I know that you were having fun.

Cheers

Buy the PigRig as a backup, incase the 817 fails. Try running that by your wife.

Correct.

Is it just the three for the oscillator that

Normally, that would be the case. BUT, in Diz's design, the LO
crystal may have to be close to the other three in order to hit the
center of the crystal filter passband. I don't know how much LO
adjustment is provided in his kit.

Not too late Lee. I still get emails occasionally from someone who
has decided to build a PVXO and Crystal Checker circuit so that they
can roll their own filters.

I've had all the parts for about ten
> years now...

And I've heard that a few times along the way! :-)

Re: Pig Rig Rocks

We may have to remove a winding from L1, but maybe not. We're in a "change it
and check it" mode with this. I'll 'spearmint and see what needs to be changed
and by how much and pass that info along via the reflector. In any event the
changes should be minimal, we just have to see what they are.
