OK folks, first an apology, I was exercising my Vibroplex Bug so sorry about the errors and repeats but I gotta get used to the beast and the only way to do that is on the air among friends. So thanks for putting up with it, it'll be better next time (I hope).
Check-ins:
W5WIL - Dennis - OK
K4EQ - Dale - MO
NF0R - David - MO
KK5IB - Darryl - AR

Thanks folks, it's you who make the whole thing worthwhile.
Be blessed my friends

40m Net this evening

Wayne Dillon
 

Good morning all,
There will be a net this evening, 19:30 CDT (00:30z) on 7.122 =/-.
Although we're expecting storms this evening I'm hoping they will not arrive until after net time but check your e-mail close to net time, I'll post if the net cannot occur, If I don't post then the net WILL take place. Conditions look acceptable propagation wise so we'll see.
Be blessed all,

SSS Results

John Lonigro
 

We've reached the halfway point in this year's Second Sunday Sprint. In the lead at this point is Bill, KV6Z, who has solidified his position by coming in first in June. Bill has 101 QSO points, followed by Gary KF7WNS and Chas W2SH, both with 78 points. Since Bill got the most points in June (15), he can expect to find yet another certificate in his in-box shortly. Glancing at my spreadsheet, it looks like this is the third month (out of six) in which Bill came in first. That shows real dedication.

New to this month's list is Dennis W5WIL (4SQRP member #448) from Ada, Texas. Welcome to the Second Sunday Sprint, Dennis. Hope you can find time to participate every month.

I'm sure I don't need to remind everyone that Field Day is about 10 days away. While I'm not aware of any organized Field Day activity by the 4SQRP group, I suspect most members will be out in the field with local clubs they may belong to. Good luck to all and let's hope the storms are few and far between that weekend.

72 until next month,

John, AA0VE

SMD Adapter for the AADE LC meter

Jim Sheldon
 

Fooling around with an idea this morning and I came up with an adapter
for the AADE LC meter (and any other capacitance meter capable of
nulling out around 4 pF or more of stray capacitance across it's
terminals) to make measuring the values of SMD chip capacitors a whole
lot easier.

I had the heavy, PC board cover off an old 4SQRP "Cyclone" transceiver
that had gotten destroyed by it's builder a couple of years ago and I
used this to make the adapter.

See attached pictures.

Re: OT: FS: Assembled & Working QRP Guys Multi Z Tuner [2 Attachments]

David Wilcox
 

For those not so lucky to get this one there is one almost identical except it comes with a snap apart PC board case available from the GQRP Club. I built one a few hears ago and it works great. The 4SQRP version is also neat. I use mine often with good results. Seems these tuners are the rage these days.

Pretty versatile little tuner but I was given a switchable 80-10 meter portable tuner that's totally encased (I do occasionally use an amplifier in the field) that will handle 100 watts (this one is rated at 10) I don't need the Multi Z and am offering it here first in case anyone needs a good little tuner.

I built this one and got in a bit of a hurry on winding the toroid. Had to remove and rewind it. During the process of unsoldering the wires, I lifted one pad for the H1 terminal. Fortunately it was on the underside of the board and not connected to a trace. I was able to get a good solder connection to that wire on the top side of the board when I installed the rewound toroid and everything works well, just a missing pad on the bottom. (see pictures). Printed copy of the instructions (same printout I used to build it) will be included.

QRP Guys sell this for $35 on their website. I'm asking $22.50 (15 for the tuner, 7.50 small flat rate box shipping). PayPal preferred to w0eb@cox.net but I will take a money order (ships same day funds received).

Interested? Please contact me off the reflector to limit clutter. w0eb@cox.net.

OK, I know this is a crazy topic. Just wondering - would a .50 cal metal ammo box protect a rig from an EMP blast? No, I'm not becoming a "prepper" but I am curious. 


I was always under the impression you needed special metal to protect from that. Like guys using diecast zinc type boxes for sensitive RF measuring equipment...


This article is rather 'open' on what you can use. I would've never imagined a static bag could prevent damage from an EMP... goodness knows I have a few static bags!

I was just thinking - why not put the KX3 in an ammo box when I'm not using it?

Send in your score

John Lonigro
 

I hope the SSS went smoothly last night and that lots of contacts were made. Some hockey fans out there may have opted to watch the game instead of playing radio. Anyway, send in your scores and I'll tabulate everything Wednesday morning. The place to do that is QRPCONTEST.COM/4SQRP or just go to QRPCONTEST.COM and choose the 4SQRP group.

72 and keep cool,

ATS3-B, ATS-4B or Wilderness Sierra

If anyone has an ATS3-B or ATS-4B or Wilderness Sierra they would be willing to part with I would really like to purchase it, or all three. I am getting too old to build kits any more because my eyes just cannot handle it anymore so I am not interested in a kit. I can pay by Postal MO or Cashiers Check. Thank you all for this off topic request.

Please let me know off the list to w0eb@cox.net if you have one and if

Glad you brought that up, because I almost forgot to remind everyone about it.  The SSS (Second SUNDAY Sprint) is indeed on Sunday.  I guess those not familiar with it might think it is the Second Saturday Sprint, but that would be incorrect.
The Sprint is tomorrow, June 11th, from 7:00-9:00 pm CDT.  Please refer to the 4SQRP On Air Activity link to get the complete set of rules.  And, when you finish the sprint, go to QRPCONTEST.COM and enter your score.  Please do so before Wednesday morning, which is the traditional time I tabulate the results and report them to the group.
