Re: VXO /parts/ Xmtr /Parts (Missed the kits !)

That one by W1FB from the 80s is a good one. 40 meter VXO transmitter with instant QSK. I believe the final was an MPS U02 and it ran about a watt output. It worked great.

OT AEA MT-1 Code Trainer

David Wilcox
 

Guys,

I know this is OT but at Dayton I was able to find an AEA MT-1 code trainer, the same one I learned on when studying Morse for my Extra 25 or more years ago.  I wonder if someone knows about this and has the instructions.  I can find on line all the AEA products but this one and the instructions for the BT-1 don't work on this unit.  It looks pristine and works as a code oscillator but I can't get the programming to work.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Head Magnifier Redux

W6BOW
 

Dear All,

Some weeks ago there was a 4SQRP discussion re. a Head Magnifier.

I purchased same via E-Bay. 

In my opinion a tool very well worth the reasonably small investment. 

Thank you 4SQRP for the tip.

I have no financial interest.

I went thru the build with no problems and double-checked the values of everything as I built it. It powered up as designed on the mid build check but when it was time to do a full test there is no volume except on 2 spots of the volume dial. At those 2 spots I get a low static noise if I put my ear up to the speaker but then tuning has absolutely no effect. I will go thru the build again tonight step by step and maybe pull the 2 transistors and test those as well. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated..

Is there a forum where I might be able to get some direction on figuring out my issue with this build?
