Hi-Per-Mite Question

Mark Hansen
 

I plan to incorporate the HPM into my Bayou Jumper which is currently under construction. What is the proper configuration as far as audio gain - should I build the HPM with gain, or with 0 gain?
It will be wired in to the circuit as described with the recommended SPDT toggle switch.

Thanks - Mark WA0RXR

My Bayou Jumper is under construction at this time. I will provide feedback in the near future. Happy new year.

Best regards,

Gary, K7EK

Re: Possible Bayou Jumper operating event

Curt
 

Jim

well if you study 40m propagation now you may discover the band is quite long at time - so with many stations in 4 state region and about - good to have someone who is not close!  wow 'Houston' is quite heroic also (aka Apollo 13) -- you may wish to recruit a few geographically dispersed net control stations - and okay of course to keep it on CW (I was honestly thinking split -- not necessarily CW and SSB on same frequency). 

when you built your BJ prototype I built a similar Tx, but went a different direction on a regen receiver - the WBR - not integrated but I did use the tuna tin 2 +mosfet Tx with a magic box (so forgive my QSK !). 

have fun - I might be away when you do the initial one, but it might catch on to be done again maybe.
