Re: Tonites nets.

w2sh@...
 

I've managed to reduce the SSB QRM by tightening up the selectivity on my TenTec 539 (Argo VI) enough to satisfactorily read the CW stations who are strong enough to reach a kilomile or so. 


Although I can operate anywhere on 40m, am I correct in saying that there are some 4SQRP people who operate rigs with crystals that are on 7.122mHz or slightly below?


72,


Charles, W2SH

Hello Wayne, Doug and the Group,

The 7.122 freq makes it difficult with the SSB so close for myself also.  When it is strong I'm not able to hear much else.  Freq change away from that would be great for me.
That is my two cents for what it is worth.

Hi Doug,
Yeah, we can move to 7.110 or 7.105, I too am getting a little tired of fighting the SSB crowd .
OK, assuming I can call the net next week I'll post a few reminders to the group on Tuesday evening and Wednesday afternoon.
Does anyone else have any input on this proposed frequency change?
Be blessed

I will try again next week..72 from NC,

Yes, I would so like to be able to use my 80 meter crystals from KC9ON. I installed a socket on my Cricket board for that purpose. I just wrote John Clements KC9ON about this problems. I hope we can easily solve it.

Is it the spiral coils with inductance and capacitance attached to the pc board? That answer is for the hackers to accomplish or simply enjoy a very unique transceiver.

Cricket delivers a little less than 1 watt and brings challenges over propagation, digi signals, antenna designs and freedom of a VFO. All these items are perfect for the QRPer since we seem to be very good at thinking outside the box of conventional high power Ham radio practices!

There have been a few inquiries as the the status to the 7122 8AM Thursday morning 40M net.  Perhaps there is enough interest to re-open the net.  I was the previous NCS and, after many years, am not interested in doing it any longer.

Is anyone interest in being the new Thursday morning net NCS?

Hi Curt,

Sri, the Thursday morning net was discontinued for lack of checkins, and I burned out on it.  There may be more interest now, so pse feel free to call it if you'd like. 

I'd imagine that most any BJ owner would be happy to work you.  Try spotting yourself on qrpspots.com, or announcing on the 4sqrp or BJ groups.   Good luck and have fun with the BJ, sure is a great little rig isnt it.

Exciting

Wayne Steury
 

I have made four initial contacts with my cricket so far. It is exciting to make new contacts with this simple radio that is less than a watt of power. My only disappointment is that I cannot use a different frequency. I have four other crystals from KC9ON for 80 m. His other crystals work well with my pixie, 49or and Rockmite on 40 but not with the Cricket with 80 meter crystals.

Any discoveries for changing frequencies?
