Bilt an SSB-Mite last night

ohwenzelph
 

Went pretty well, put it in an Altoids tin. Did not used fixed gain because I had a 100k pot with a switch! At first I wired it up backwards so that when it first turned on it was at maximum gain so took it back out and rotated the pot 180 degrees and redid the connections. It’s a bit messy but functional. Cut a trace and mounted C16 sideways on the bottom of the board, so it is not in the circuit unless I add a jumper on the top. Should give me pretty much the full range of available gain. I like it, I think it works well. Tested it with a KD1JV 20m SlopBucket which already has pretty nice audio. Real test will be with my analogue BITX40 which had a lot of high pitched tone in its audio (that came from I don’t know where). Maybe next weekend.

Thanks Jeff I will try both suggestions.
most appreciated. Planning on working outside as a single operator on Winter Field Day.
I have found my club operations too hectic, but love to operate CW. So will give a try.

Hi Doc,

If you compose a note or file using the built-in Notes app, and avoid
doing any sort of formatting (i.e. bold), and then save ("Save to
Files" via the share icon), that file will be a text file. It
actually acquires a .txt filename extension when you save it.

Then, you can attach that file to an email, and it will be what
you're looking for.

Formatting the contents of that file in Cabrillo format... that's on
you. But I think you know what you're after in that regard :-)

Let me know if you need screen shots to walk you through it.

Re: FW: Bayou Jumper Souper Upper Kit Installation Help

Mike Scheidt
 

Bob,

 

What a very gracious offer.  Thanks.

 

I’m not in any hurry whatsoever.  I’ll get the Bayou Jumper and Souper Upper board and remaining parts shipped to you in the next day or two.  With UPS, I can include a prepaid return shipping label that I’ll include inside of the box that I’ll ship the stuff to you.

 

Thanks again kindly.

Mike, I built and installed one of those for another ham and could do it for you. No cost except for postage each way. And a bit of patience as it might take a couple of weeks. If interested, drop me me a line directly.

I would like to hire someone (ideally someone who has installed this kit
into a Bayou Jumper already) to complete the final steps in me adding the
"Souper Upper" kit to my Bayou Jumper.  I've completed the board for the
kit, but I don't feel confident enough to complete the internal mounting of
the board, wiring the same, and most importantly, accurately drilling
through the face of the Bayou Jumper.  I have only one non-standard item on
my Bayou Jumper, in that, please note it has a Vernier tuning dial, which
has helped me a great deal in selecting the received frequency.  I don't
believe it will preclude the Souper Upper kit items to be installed as
intended.

I'll obviously pay shipping both ways, and I'd appreciate an approximate
dollar estimate to install the Souper Upper kit.  Lastly, I'm not in a
particular rush.

Thanks in advance for considering my request for assistance.

Re: 40 and 80 meter net report

John - KK4ITX
 

Well Johnny, it wasn’t because we didn’t try !  Hate to sound like a broken record but I worked the dial s-l-o-w-l-y around 7.122 and occasionally some part of a letter would pop up at then at 2:18 into the Net there was a very short burst of super loud CW and before I could zero in it was gone.

While 80m was better all but short bursts were under my noise, which was not terrible tonight.

If I had never worked Washington State and Northern Maine with 5w I would question if this was even possible ?

For me, I can only say thanks for being there and giving me real practice.
