Dang it... forgot

The contest for the field key is in honor of my SK friend Jerry Haigood.  I use a couple of his designs very often so it just seemed like the thing to do.

QRP'ian Podcast Field Key Contest

Mike Malone
 

Hey gangue,  we have a field key design contest cooking with a May 15th deadline for entries.  If you search KD5KXF on ITunes podcast search and listen to Episode 2 and follow entry instructions you could win a very cool out of production kit.  Only hints I will give is it hears real good on 40 and was designed by some old hand named Jim K.  So send your entries gangue, let me make you infamous and enriched with one of my favorite rigs... complete ham assembly required.

Hello,

We Have A Band Opening!

No 80 meter QRP rig or antenna for 80 ( yet ).

However! - I did hear your CQ CQ de WA0ITP WA0ITP through the Gulf Coast QRN.
Definate ID on your signal, but very weak in the noise. I ordered a Cricket
and have a dipole cut for the low end of 80 ready to glue the coax to soon.
It's tough getting old.

Back in a hotel room again. The 10 mW the mag loop puts out on 80 meters wouldn’t be worth the effort, even if it would tune that low!

Jlbqth@...
 

Hi all, I have several very nice items for sale either unassembled or in mint condition with nearly no use.  This is essentially a complete station.  The receiver and transmitter have very good specs, see the 4SQRP site to read about the SS-40HT and the SS4-TX kits.

 

1. HF Packer amp version 3 (mint, almost zero use) = 150.00 + 10.00 shipping

2. Unassembled still in bag 4StateQRP SS-40HT Receiver $60.00 + 10.00 shipping (retired kit-no longer available).

3. Unassembled still in bag 4StateQRP SS40-TX (companion transmitter to the SS40-HT) $50.00 + 10.00 shipping (retired kit-no longer available).

4.  OHR WM-2 Wattmeter (mint) $110.00 + 10.00 shipping

 

To simplify packing and shipping, I will sell all four for $325.00 with free shipping.


Paypal preferred.

If you want a few items, but not all, I will of course, combine shipping.


Thanks,

Jeff– NN7EE

Thanks so much for finding me Jim.  You signal was above the noise hear and except for QRM, you were solid copy.
I also worked Johnny, were you on your Cricket? Your sig was weaker than Jims.  Maybe Prop.

Wow! Actually worked Terry, WA0ITP on 3.57987. RST was 339 in QSB and
heavy QRN so I'm really surprised I could hear him at all on 80 meters.
The QRN level on my P3 Panadapter is running right at S3 right now and
Terry was in and out of it but I was able to copy about 80 percent down
here in Park City, KS (Wichita area). I was using my K3S throttled back
to 5 watts into an Alpha Delta DX-LB 160/80/40 trap dipole only 35 feet
high at the center and maybe 20 feet on the North end and 10 feet high
on the South end. It gets out really well on 40, but 80 and 160 are
pretty marginal with that antenna.

Can't wait until the Crickets are available on the website and they
should actually post the manual right away because some of them left
Branson unassembled and there are no instructions until the manual shows
up on the website.
