PigRig

Grey <countyhunterw4gns@...>
 

Well I discovered the Pig Rig about 2 days before it was mentioned here. I managed to talk myself out of buying one, and was very proud of passing on this rig.

But after all the excite here about the rig, I cracked and ordered one, and also ask Terry for the new crystals. But hey, I held out for 2 days !

Woot!  Pig Rig #164 has been shipped!  Diz seems to be doing a pretty quick turn-around time!  I ordered mine Sunday at 2:08 PM, had his confirmation with the Serial Number at 4:55PM.  This will be my next one after I finish with the NS-40.

Count me in for a set too, Terry!  I was going to wait until I finished my NS-40 + Keyer to order and build a PigRig, but if he's got limited quantity, I better jump now.  So I just ordered up the kit!

If the Group is interested, I'll organize a group purchase of 7122 crystals.  They will probably cost between $1 and $2 each.  I'll take the bulk delivery and mail your 4 xtals to you.  The postage will be on my nickel.
 
If at least 10 members sign up, I'll go ahead and place the order.  Wanna do it?
 
FYI Diz only has 60 PigRigs left.

Hi All,

     I believe it was Diz’s intent to use the Pig Rig for clubs, nets, etc.  Each club (such as 4sqrp) could have their very own frequency setup.  That way, the club members could stay in contact with one another.  It is not necessary to stick with 7030.7KHz but rather the club could pick a different frequency.  Once the club had picked a frequency then the club would buy the required crystals from whomever they like to put their pig rigs on that frequency.  The radio was never intended to be a general purpose 40 meter radio but was intended for single frequency use by clubs or nets.  I remember when I was about 16 years old, the one of the local AM radio stations was giving away am radios as a promotion.  Of course, the radios only received the single am station that was giving them away!  They had a single knob – on/off and volume.

Hi,

To be crystal clear (pun intended) the crystal filter is in the front
end of the receiver and NOT at some IF or "shifted frequency". A VXO
won't help much. It sounds like a lot of fun. But it's not my cup of tea
being so restricted, either. Unless..I have some *other* radios I can
use when the Pig Rig frequency is in use. Like the radios that surround
me when I'm typing emails (evil grin).

Normally I don't do a lot of kits , but do build daily on perf board and point to point wiring . I literally have so much homebrew stuff that I am running out of room :)

HOWEVER this group is what made me decide to order a kit and of course knowing Diz and his products helped push me along .

This is reminding me of my old days as a Novice in 1965 (WN0NTU) and I hope he sells MANY more to members of this group . Should always be able to find a person to chat with .

Since it reminds me so much of my Novice days I am going to dig out the old original J-38 that I started ham radio with to use just with this rig . I am out to chat , not set any speed records :)

I may need to build up a code practice oscillator to practice with the J-38 to learn to send good CW with it again .

VERY NICE THAT THIS IS TURNING INTO A CLUB PROJECT !!

I don't think battery power should make a difference one
way or the other. 60 or 120 Hz is way different from 1200 Hz
up and down the band.

I think I would try taking out C27 and see if that makes
any difference. You can just detach one side or the other.
It will kill the offsetting of your transmit frequency,
but that doesn't matter for the moment.

The oscillator works on receive, so seems like it has to be
just those components that come in on transmit.
You can remove the ones associated with the transmit offset
by taking out C27 or Q1 or R23, my preference would be C27.

I don't know anything about the L7 toroid thing.
There is the one in the power line.. do you have that
one in your accounting?

Flying pig rig saga!

So far I have done the following:
Made sure all parts in correct place.
Checked toroids. One had one xtra turn. Removed xtra turn.
Removed binocular toroids and re wound them.
Re heated all solder joints.
Made sure all transistors were correct ones and installed correctly.
I tried changing xtal. Problem still there.
If I listen to the osc without transmitting I do not hear any birdies.
I have a 1/2 toroid left over. Parts list says it is L7. I see no place for it on the board or see it on the schematic?
 I have also tried running the rig on battery power.
About ready to put it in the pig sty (junk box)
 Tnx to everyone for your suggestions.

Hi George,
 
Listening to you on 40 meters this morning in QSO with W8QP.
I tried to call you first but couldn't figure out which signal was your findamental
as you are radiating on the whole band 1.2khz apart.
Thought you might want to know about it before an OO sights in on you.

i decided to just join you with the 4020 that is IF i can hear anyone through all the ssb qrm in the evenings on 40..its awful here.. just wait until they redo the band making the pig rigs useless..on 7122.. its a shame they dont keep a traditional place for beginners the novice ticket when it was thought of in 1950's was a great idea. novice clas a classb.. then they got the idea of general advanced and extra.
so i beleive thats how it began.. need to look at my history ..i got some of it right i think.
i like 7030 7040 when the darn constant carriers are gone.. and seems like theres a nerd..who likes to constnatly tune up whenever i get on 7040.. whoever it is hes got a srong sig.. funny he goes away when i leave.. guess i got a fan after 35 years..who knew..lol Dennis wd9dwe

Hi All,

I believe it was Diz’s intent to use the Pig Rig for clubs, nets, etc. Each club (such as 4sqrp) could have their very own frequency setup. That way, the club members could stay in contact with one another. It is not necessary to stick with 7030.7KHz but rather the club could pick a different frequency. Once the club had picked a frequency then the club would buy the required crystals from whomever they like to put their pig rigs on that frequency. The radio was never intended to be a general purpose 40 meter radio but was intended for single frequency use by clubs or nets. I remember when I was about 16 years old, the one of the local AM radio stations was giving away am radios as a promotion. Of course, the radios only received the single am station that was giving them away! They had a single knob – on/off and volume.

Hi,

To be crystal clear (pun intended) the crystal filter is in the front
end of the receiver and NOT at some IF or "shifted frequency" . A VXO
won't help much. It sounds like a lot of fun. But it's not my cup of tea
being so restricted, either. Unless..I have some *other* radios I can
use when the Pig Rig frequency is in use. Like the radios that surround

No upgrade would be needed for a PigRig on 7122. That's in the

Ok my PIG RIG is on its way

Terry is ordering the 7.122 rocks

Will we need to make other component value changes to bring the flying pig rigs to their new home on 7.122??????? ????

My pig rig is now on order and Terry has me on the list for the needed crystals .

Normally I don't do a lot of kits , but do build daily on perf board and point to point wiring . I literally have so much homebrew stuff that I am running out of room :)

HOWEVER this group is what made me decide to order a kit and of course knowing Diz and his products helped push me along .

This is reminding me of my old days as a Novice in 1965 (WN0NTU) and I hope he sells MANY more to members of this group . Should always be able to find a person to chat with .

Since it reminds me so much of my Novice days I am going to dig out the old original J-38 that I started ham radio with to use just with this rig . I am out to chat , not set any speed records :)

I may need to build up a code practice oscillator to practice with the J-38 to learn to send good CW with it again .

VERY NICE THAT THIS IS TURNING INTO A CLUB PROJECT !!

I don't think battery power should make a difference one
way or the other. 60 or 120 Hz is way different from 1200 Hz
up and down the band.

I think I would try taking out C27 and see if that makes
any difference. You can just detach one side or the other.
It will kill the offsetting of your transmit frequency,
but that doesn't matter for the moment.

The oscillator works on receive, so seems like it has to be
just those components that come in on transmit.
You can remove the ones associated with the transmit offset
by taking out C27 or Q1 or R23, my preference would be C27.

I don't know anything about the L7 toroid thing.
There is the one in the power line.. do you have that
one in your accounting?

Terry,

I've got a pig rig on order and would love a set of the 7122 crystals. How do I pay for them? Paypal?

72/73, Dave, KD6A

Right on Jerry.

If the Group is interested, I'll organize a group purchase of 7122 crystals. They will probably cost between $1 and $2 each. I'll take the bulk delivery and mail your 4 xtals to you. The postage will be on my nickel.

If at least 10 members sign up, I'll go ahead and place the order. Wanna do it?

FYI Diz only has 60 PigRigs left.

btw usual disclaimers apply both on the crystals and the rigs.

Hi All,

I believe it was Diz’s intent to use the Pig Rig for clubs, nets, etc. Each club (such as 4sqrp) could have their very own frequency setup. That way, the club members could stay in contact with one another. It is not necessary to stick with 7030.7KHz but rather the club could pick a different frequency. Once the club had picked a frequency then the club would buy the required crystals from whomever they like to put their pig rigs on that frequency. The radio was never intended to be a general purpose 40 meter radio but was intended for single frequency use by clubs or nets. I remember when I was about 16 years old, the one of the local AM radio stations was giving away am radios as a promotion. Of course, the radios only received the single am station that was giving them away! They had a single knob â€" on/off and volume.

Hi,

To be crystal clear (pun intended) the crystal filter is in the front
end of the receiver and NOT at some IF or "shifted frequency". A VXO
won't help much. It sounds like a lot of fun. But it's not my cup of tea
being so restricted, either. Unless..I have some *other* radios I can
use when the Pig Rig frequency is in use. Like the radios that surround
me when I'm typing emails (evil grin).
