Ozark Patrol help needed

Dan
 

My son has just completed the Ozark Patrol kit, however it doesn't appear to be working properly.  When we power it on, there is a slight hiss from the speaker, however turning the regen knob or tuning knobs doesnt really change anything.  


Moving on to the voltages listed in the instructions this is what I measured:

Battery voltage - 9.35 volts


I will put the voltage listed in the instructions in parentheses at the end just for reference


Emitter Q1 - 0v (0v)

Base Q1 - .52v (.65v)

Collector Q1 - 0v (3-5v)

Base Q2 - .61v (.65v)

Collector Q2 - 3.41v (3v)

Emitter Q3 - 2.74v (2.5v)

Collector Q3 - 5.48v (8-9v)


Ok, so something is clearly wrong on collector of q1 and collector of q3 ... the others seem close to me.  Looking at the schematic, I measured the voltage before R1 (around 9v) and between R1 and R2 (around 4.5v), but then the voltage drops to 0.


I have looked at the basic stuff (correct components and diode orientation / cold solder / bridges - that's not to say I didn't miss something), but I was wondering if anyone might have any suggestions on where to focus my attention.


Thanks!

I will be one of your 20 meter foxii tomorrow.  QTH is south central MN.  Rig will be my Flex 1500 @ 5 watts to a 3 ele yagi, loop or a ground mounted vertical.  Plan on starting out beaming south, then east and finally west.  I'll be switching antennas throughout  the hunt.  I plan on working split at the start and will say "up", when things settle down will work simplex.

Please get on and give us a shout.  Good luck and have fun.  Join the party, it's my birthday.

Oh, no!  My favorite QRP list has devolved into politics!  Please, keep to QRP/amateur radio.  I get enough politics on TV, Broadcast radio, Facebook, Twitter,  etc.  Let's get back to slinging solder instead of demonizing each other, calling each other names, and letting the propagandists win.  Rant over and out.
