Subject: [4sqrp] Question

 
I have a 15 meter hamstick. I was wondering if I could replace the stinger with a longer telescopic whip and use it on 17 meters with my arp rig? I know a new hamstick would only be about $20 but if I can use what I have then I could put the $20 bucks towards a new 4state kit. Please let me know what you all think.

Re: 7122 Crystals

I did not pre-order a set of these crystals. If there are any unclaimed sets could I please purchase one or two sets?

thanks, Paul K0ZYV

My Pig Rig oscillator reached 7122 without any modification, just needed to set
the freq by tweaking the yellow trimcap, C26. Mine also seems sensitive enough
without retuning of the receiver. So this is a "plug and play" very easy mod.
If you have any questions or concerns about it, pse shoot me a note.

More and more Pigrigs, and also Cyclones are converging on 7122, and QSO's are
taking place. Join the fun. 7122 has become the Group's 40M QSO frequency of
choice. Often one can hear " 4" being sent in place of "CQ 4SQRP" How cool is
that? Give it a try.

Thanx much.

Free To A Good QRP Home

Sam Neal
 

Hello,

I have a factory built Oak Hills Research WM-2 QRP Watt meter that fell off the shelf, and like Humpty Dumpty, it had a greart fall. The fall knocked the clear plastic cover off of the meter, but the meter still works fine. There is no damage to the meter movement. I replaced the old meter with a new one Satureday, and should anyone want it, they can have the old meter free of charge and I pay the shipping.

So there is no mistake, this is the meter only, with the clear plastic cover removed and long gone, and is not the entire WM-2 QRP Wattmeter.

73,

Sam Neal  N5AF



FS Pig Rig

Piggy 132 is for sale
 Well broken in as I have made over 125 contacts. Even a few DX. It uses the orig xtals and xmits on 7030.7. I added a tuneable audio filter. There is a picture of this rig on the pig site. Since that picture I did add a switch to turn the filter on or off. I found the filter handy to peak the sigs of guys who call me off freq. I also added the latest keyer chip. Everything works as it should. I am ready to build my next kit now.  Price is $65.00 shipped con. U.S. only.

I would love to build this kit - but I don't want to own one as I have A KX3 and it's sooooo nice.
If anyone wants one of the Cyclone 40's but doesn't feel comfortable with the build - contact me and I'll build it for free.

Hi and GM Johnny,
  I found the activity at 50.1 +/- a little. I was looking for cw.. figured that would get through better... maybe?
Didn't take a trip up the band to the ssb spots tho.
Was so intently listening for the JA opening..
I have to get a much better antenna. *grin*

Re: HF Poor / 6M Good

Jim Sheldon
 

Don't know if there is a specific CW calling frequency, but most of the CW activity was from about 50.080 through 50.110.  SSB is usually from 50.125 (calling freq) and up.  LOTS of great sporadic E activity over the last few days so if you have 6M capability, even with simple wire antennas, jump on the band.  It usually opens up after noon and runs well into the evening hours when it's open.  Also, check out the website ---  http://www.dxmaps.com/spots/map.php?Lan=E&Frec=50&ML=M&Map=NA&DXC=N&HF=N&GL=N  which will show the openings on a map and where the activity is.
