IS there still a group out there for the Cyclone kit? I have some questions that can’t be answered via the manual or the modifications that I have found for this rig. Or is there someone that is familiar with this kit to answer some questions. Help would be appreciated.

Re: Question About The 4 States Antenna Tuner

Jeff Logullo N0̸MII
 

If the LEDs are lighting at all, then they're not installed backwards I wouldn't think.

Have you tried it with a dummy load connected to the antenna output? Might be good to start there, eliminating antenna variability while you're troubleshooting.

I recently completed a 4 States Tuner kit and gave it a try.  Sadly, it is not behaving correctly.  The red REV light come son and stays brightly lit no matter how I adjust the inductor or capacitors.  The green FWD is only weakly on when the inductor is at the higher inductance setting and then dims whenever either capacitor is adjusted.  It is off whenever the inductor is set at lower inductances.  Is it possible that the red LED was installed backwards? Anything else?
Thanks to anyone who might have some insight.

Re: 80 and 40 meter nets

In NJ I could hear bits and pieces of Bert's sig on 40m.  Paul was fully readable.  Only bits and pieces of Mike's sig.  I think i did hear N4MJ.  I dropped my call sign a few times, but without any NCS acknowledgement.

On 80m I could hear sigs, but no copy whatsoever.

Re: 75A - Kits in the 190 Serial Number Range - Do They Need The Modification?

Yes, that would make them more like the N75a.

Herb,

Happy you found the problem.  Assume that it was solder at R3 or at the regen and not a broken land on the board. 

Almost every problem have had with a kit has been a missing or poor soldered connection.

Hello all,
  I have an old piece of test equipment, in a nice wooden box with a removable hinged lid. It is a Beckman RC16B2 conductivity bridge from a local SK estate. Maybe someone wants to build a radio into it? Dimensions are 11”wide x 8 3/4” deep x 8” high. See picture. Say $10 plus what it costs to ship, guessing $10 to $15. Look at those knobs! To lighten it up for shipping,  I can remove the “guts” and leave the front panel. Or take the whole thing! Interested?
