I was happy to hear something on 40, at least my antenna is working ! Not a peep on 80.

If you need a parachute and don't have one you probably won't need one again.

Mine came with dead crystals.  New crystals made the difference, but they are off frequency so far (10.106 is above 10.107 and 10.110 is below 10.109) that it is unusable with other Crickets.

Subject: [4SQRP] Simple Murania mod offers better performance
 
Here is a simple mod that will produce better performance from the very fine Murania radio...It is completely reversible and requires no hacking of the radio...

I live 5 miles from a 50kW AM station which tends to overload the detector in the TA7642 IC...Here's the fix...

FLOAT the wiper lug of R3
Place a jumper between the PADS for the R3 wiper and the high side of R3
Lift the leg of R1 that intersects with R2 and R3
Connect a jumper between the floated leg of R1 and the wiper of R3

Done...

This allows R3 to control the gain of the detector stage in the TA7642...The audio amp runs wide open...Adjust R3 for the best sounding audio...R3 now acts similar to a regenerative control where there is both volume and gain reaction...

This mod comes from my own experimenting and information gleaned off the Internet...Give it a try...I think you'll be pleased with the results...

Re: Hello I am in search of a component a 4k:20 Audio Transformer

Jim Pruitt
 

Hello KD5ALD.

Do you have a 20 ohm speaker and headphones ?  T1 is for matching to your speaker and headphones.  You might have better luck finding a 4K:8 transformer and using a 8 ohm speaker and headphones.

Good luck.

Re: 40m Net

Bill was only 549 here and I copied his 119 report to me. 

Thanks Bill for all you did to pull me at least part way out from the noise.

Interestingly, 80m has been an easier QNI for me this month.  Must be that Johnny has some super-duper antenna wax.

Well - tonight's conditions were rotten, crummy, and awful. (And that's being generous.)
Got one for sure - K3NLT - Russ in VA.
Think I got Chas - W2SH, but I wouldn't bet on it.
Missed another one - SRI.
Signals were very weak tonight plus I had to slide down to  7122.5 to avoid the quacking SSB ducks.
I hope conditions improve soon.

Re: 80 meter Net Report

My QNI wasn't great, but not bad for the 1,100+ mile distance.  I must say that Johnny's sig at 569 here was 2 S units better than any of the other QNIs, some of which were inaudible.
