Re: I saw a Gene Autry show

Everett Catlin
 

The name of the 4SQRP group Murania came from the Gene Autry movie serial the "Phantom Empire" You can see all twelve of the episodes http://arcive.org. Then search "Phantom Empire". Look for the box that says episodes 1-12 and have a great time.You will find the Origin of the radio's name and where the atomic symbol on the Murania comes from. My Murania is a daily user. I listen to WSM Nashville and 1280 kcs  out of Columbia. At night I have heard WLS, Alanta and many other DX broadcast stations. If you don't have one get one you will have fun.

Re: Electronic visual aids for working with SMD (i.e. microscopes)

In these cameras, the zoom is digital (controlled by the software) and the focal point is optical (controlled on the camera).

With mine, I worked as close as a few millimeters from the PCB to as far as more than an inch.

I could get magnification from 40x to over 250x, depending on the setting of the focal point.

In addition, using a large monitor helps to see small details better than a phone or tablet.

I learned that zooming and focus varies with each camera type and price range, so I suggest downloading the User's Guide before buying.

Hello Bob, The Murania kit is a David Cripe design. Here is a link. it is an easy build and enjoyable to use.
de Paul N0NBD

High quality, double sided, printed circuit board construction is used, with solder mask and silk screened component reference designators. A unique, construction technique is used in the Murania, called 'Pittsburg' construction, after the hometown of its inventor Joe, W0MQY.

Murania kit sales have remained good and I will have to kit again next week as my stack of boxed up ready to mail kits is growing low. have a good one all. I am talking to my sons to see if they will attend Brutus with me. until later remember to drink all your milk and say your prayers

Nouveau 75 Errata

nm0s_qrp <ai9e_qrp@...>
 

For those who have just purchased our new Nouveau 75 kit, a sharp-eyed builder has spotted two errata in the manual dated 7-21-19.  They are:
 
1.  The instruction manual dated 7-21-19 has incorrect directions for inserting Q2.  It should read: 'Insert Q2 with the large flat side facing the RIGHT of the board.'
 
2.  Instructions for connecting the ribbon cable were incomplete.  Pin 1 on the PCB connects to the LED board terminal labeled 'CLK'.

A corrected manual will be uploaded to the kit web page soon.

The built-in LED flashlight provides good lighting over the covered area.

They are available on-line from various vendors.

Just make sure to get the one with the flexible arm stand, as it has a 
wider reach than the other stand.

Nice idea!

I have one of the Samsung Android devices.  5MP resolution and it focuses down to 3 inches. 'Newer' is probably better as the technology improves.    73- Dave

I didn’t hear anything on 80m and I put out my Call (not really a cool thing to do on a net) and heard no response.  40m here at the campground is a total wipeout with QRM, I checked but had S8 noise.

Re: Brutus Bash 2019 Info

Johnny et al.

Thanks for the kind invite. 

Brutus looks like the real deal. Quite the skyhook for antenna work, no?

My poor puns aside ...

The serious point being that it is great that "Brutus" and similar sites

… including USS Hornet -ars NB6GCUSS Texas - ars KC5NX … Chatham, MA Marconi Maritime Center - ars WA1WCC  (all of which I've worked using the Hilltopper 20)

are being conserved, restored or re-purposed, and celebrated for their historical, engineering and cultural significance.

I visited the Bethlehem Steel Works in the Lehigh Valley earlier this year. (See pics).

Switch to "Safety".
