Not as flawless as claimed.....

one typo can make a big difference, or maybe that is - one typo can make SMOKE !!!

I see NOTHING wrong with the good ol' American way, heck I still like Cycles Per Second (cps) and micro micro Farad (uuF).

I was wondering just how many Pig Rigs are on the air? what about a net or "Pig Pen" get together on the air? Drop me a line with Pig Rig on the air in teh subjuct line if you've a mind.

Re: PigRig Resistor Values

Wayne Dillon
 

No Bill, Not newfangled. the Europeans have been doing it that way for years. Using K or M as the seperator instead of a decimal point is simply a way of making the value less suceptable to mis-interpretation, so, instead of 4.7K we have 4K7 or, instead of 1.2Meg we have 1M2. Similarly when the value is less that 1K for example 680 ohms the munber 680 is used. 500K is still 500K.
I took my engineering qualifications in the UK while employed by the Marconi Company in Chelmsford so I guess it's "normal electronics" language to me.
Hope this helps

Hi Lee,

It's just a newfangled notation. You already knew that K=1,000 and
M=1,000,000. They put the M or the K where the decimal point goes. If
it's smaller than 1K then they use an R (presumably for resistor). Can
you imagine how small a decimal point would be on today's tiny
resistors!

good. Weak.. but good.. We agree Spring cannot get here fast enuff.
Had 5 checkins and I hope I didn't miss too many, I did run 100 watts, figured if I can't do it with 100..when I usually do it
with 5 .. another couple hundred wouldn't help.
 
Welcome to the new folks... come back any time, next Tues would be good... and I bet the band is better...

KN-Q7A QRP SSB Transceiver

Herb Graeber
 

Recently purchased a KN-Q7A QRP SSB transceiver and now realize that I have no interest in SSB. Rig has the 7.200 - 7.220 crystals installed and I also have the 7.145 - 7.165 crystals. See the QRVTronics and the China Qrp websites for more info. The rig has a VXO and covers approx 7.175 - 7.222 with the installed crystals. Mint condition and includes the speaker mike. 145.00 shipped. Please contact me off line. I'm good on QRZ. Thanks. 72...Herb K5HG
