I enjoy using the BLT, with extended range to get to 80. That way, no matter what radio I take with me
I always have an swr indicator, and a match.

Have a great day,

Since my rigs have an swr bridge, my favorite commercial field
antenna tuner is the MFJ-16010. Its an L-match so hi and lo Z
are no problems, just reverse the input/outputs.

Also have a small homebrew L-match that sometimes goes to
the field.

I have never been able to beat a home made L-network and a hank of wire
held up by whatever skyhook is available. Lots of bang for the buck.
Sounds too simple. For complicated - see other posts.

Re: Tuner

Bobby,
I have 4 "favorites",  first up would be either the ZM-2 balanced tuner or the BLT balanced tuner, small lightweight and either will tune my W3EDP from '80 to '10. Next up would be my Hendrix SLT but this requires you carry specific lengths of wire/counterpoises, My absolute favorite auto tuner would be the Elecraft T1. This is an absolutely amazing tuner, never fails to amaze me as to what it will tune. I got switched on to the T1 after reading some of Jim Cluett's adventures with his various radios and the T1 ( http://www.w1pid.com/ ). I also have an MFJ-901B, I like it a lot but not for hiking :)
You're right, this should make an interesting thread...

Hello everyone,

As I mentioned in my email of February 12, after the big changeover from
my hosted reflector to the Yahoo! Groups reflector, I would be retiring
from the job.

The present reflector seems to be running without any glitches, the
membership is rising daily, and I've not heard one complaint from those
who had enough faith to re-join. Incidentally, I've had a huge increase
in the past two weeks in spam mail -- but not one single piece could be
attributed to my Yahoo! Groups long standing membership.

I've been your 4SQRP list administrator (owner, moderator, janitor, what
have you) for quite a few years. It is time for me to move on in my
life and let someone else have the fun. Mind you, I can count on one
hand the total number of instances that were unpleasant for me. And I do
appreciate and thank you for the many positive comments sent to me last
month.

I would like to introduce the two 4sqrp members who will be co-owners
and co-moderators from now on for this reflector:

Tim, N9PUZ, who has been an emergency back up moderator in case I could
not perform the duties. (He did have to step in while I was in Panama
over a year ago and didn't bring the password with me!)

And Gary, W5REJ, who also stepped forward to volunteer to help.

I'm sure you will give them the same good behavior that you have shown
me the past years.

Hope to see you at OzarkCon in a few weeks!

Don AE5K

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.

Glitch in OzarkCon registration

Don Jackson
 

Dave, Terry, or whoever is taking care of OzarkCon registrations.

I managed to accidentally break your nice registration form and payment method. Maybe you should warn about using the back one page button on a browser -- well, after filling out the form, I hit "submit" which brought me to the next page. But I forget to leave a comment, so I went back.

The rest of the story is that I am registered according to the notice I get, but I cannot find my way back into the sequence to pay via PayPal for my registration. It rejects further attempts at filling out the form again.

Help!

Lee,

Mine has shipped as #169. I'm actually hoping it's in my mailbox when I get home!!! Time to heat up the soldering iron.

73,

Todd

I bought mine (#157) on March 1.  Got an acknowledgement that said it had been shipped first class, but no tracking info.  Has anybody bought a higher serial number and already has the kit in hand?

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.

Thanks

GE Don,

Thank you for the many years of providing and overseeing the reflector. I have
it on good authority that you began in 2002 or 2003. That's a lot of service to
Four State, and its very much appreciated.

I wish you good health, peace, and happiness, and hope you enjoy some well
deserved time for yourself.

72 Terry

Yes, the 15M pile-up seems particularly dense.  This is one of those times I wish I had a way to view a segment of the band on a waterfall display,

     If you can possibly find the stations he is working and tail end them before he moves on it works ok.  But I listened for a while on 15 meters and there were so many I couldn't find the calling station.
