At last I managed a check-in! For the first few minutes I heard nothing... until I realized that 7.112 is >not< the same as 7.122. Grr!

Once on proper frequency, Wayne was booming in to Missouri -- along with a lot of QRN.

Thanks Wayne for once again bringing the 4SQRP net to the airwaves!

Last evenings nets

Wayne Dillon
 

Good morning all,
What a splendid evening on the bands. Let's start with the folks who managed a check-in:
40m:
WA9PWP, Paul, WI
N5AF, Sam, TX
W2SH, Charles, NJ
N0MII, Jeffrey, MO
KK5IB, Darryl, AR

80m:
WA9PWP, Paul, WI
KV6Z, Bill, OK
N0NBD, Paul, KS
KK5IB, Darryl, AR

So I think that we'll stay with the format of 40m at 19:30 (00:30z) and 80m at 20:00 (01:00z). 80 will likely die as we get into summer with longer daylight hours but that's in the future. Bill had a great signal on 80 but we're just too close on 40, same with Paul - N0NBD. Charles, it was nice to copy you again on 40m and a hearty "well done" to both WA9PWP and KK5IB for a clean sweep. Great to hear everyone ad I look forward to next week.
OK, Other stuff...

To those of you attending the premier QRP event in Branson (OzarkCon, what else) this weekend, you are under strict orders to have a grand time, be safe and be blessed.

The April Second Sunday Sprint is of course this Sunday, lets have a great turnout (I'll be pestering y'all with reminders in John's stead because he'll be in Branson having a grand time I volunteered to do the reminders).

Next Tuesday evening is the NAQCC 150th sprint. 2 hours of great fun so I would entreat you all to get on and make some (lots of) QSOs to support another terrific organization. I know many of you are members so please support this special event, see here for info: www.naqcc.info/contests.html

Is anyone still interested in a PSK31 net on 80m? (3580.5 +/-) Let me know off list. I'm reorganizing the station and it will be configured for PSK in the near future, your call but it won't be on a Wednesday, more likely a Friday as I don't have to get up for work on Saturdays! 

​Can't think of anything else at the moment so a huge thank you to ​all who turned out to check-in last evening, if I missed anyone my apologies and I'll try and do better next time.
Be blessed all es vy 72/3 de Wayne - NQ0RP Dit Dit

Well, I was present for both events.  Severe rain, winds and a bit of thunder were only several hours away and the resulting QRN was bad.  Unsurprisingly, Wayne was RST 469 at at best.  Paul, WA9PWP, was a solid 579.  I made the QNI without much joy.


I then tuned up on 80m, fully knowing that the QRN would be worse.  It was.  Wayne was audible but only five-percent readable.  The reliable WA9PWP was RST 369.  My fingers never touched the Junker straight key.

Good afternoon all,
Just a reminder, there will be a 40m net on 7.122 at 19:30 CDT and another net on 3564 at 20:00 CDT. We'll see how conditions pan out. If you copy me please call in, if I don't respond it's likely because I can't hear you but I would appreciate a SWL report on this reflector.

I hope to copy as any as can make it in.

Re: Class E based PSK31

danconklin2@...
 

4 State QRP group already has a receiver kit in the ZZ-RX40. A beacon, is a transmitter that operates automatically. I'm suggesting the simplest PSK-31 transmitter design possible. Auto transmission is not necessary for this. 4sqrp designs have traditionally been doable by beginner kit builders, and extremely useful to any ham. PSK-31 is still a very popular introduction into the digital modes, and having something that is low power, simple to build and operate, and portable, would fit the bill for many hams. Any stable receiver can be used on the receive end. My Kaito 1103 is stable enough for the job. 


Re: Class E based PSK31

Don Jackson
 

What do you propose as receiver?  A transmitter without a receiver is usually considered a beacon.

Re: Class E based PSK31

Don Jackson
 

While I don't want to try to throw a wet blanket on anyone's ideas, I have to wonder for *what purpose* this kit offering would be used?  The blog shows one for beacon use.  Do we really need more beacons?  And if so, what possible advantage would this kit provide over the established and very well used beacon mode of WSPR?  And if you're going to suggest a WSPR beacon kit for 4sqrp, then I'd advise looking over QRP-Labs offerings by Hans first to make sure something unique is being provided.  I'm not at all "anti-beacon" that some hams are, but with WSPR available, do we really need more beacons in our bands?

On the other hand, if this project is being proposed as the transmit half for two way communication, where is the receive half? And why should this be used in place of present methods?  Some years ago, many of us used (and I still do) the PSK80/40/20 Warbler series of modules which were complete PSK31 transceivers and quite useful for communications.  Maybe it might be time for 4sqrp to resurrect those designs if blessing of original designer was obtained -- to me that makes a lot more sense for a useful 4sqrp kit and I suspect there may be some interest and demand for them.

affects SWR, but the rest is trial and error. I can make another one
to the same specifications and it will not test out the same, close

Second Sunday Sprint

John Lonigro
 

As we all should know by now, Ozarkcon is this coming Friday/Saturday. To round out this eventful weekend, the Second Sunday Sprint is Sunday night. I know some of you might be just arriving at your QTH at 7:00 (CDT), but the vast majority of the membership will either have missed Ozarkcon altogether (too bad) or will have returned well before Sunday evening and will be raring to go. Regardless, the sprint is not going to move to another Sunday. We've tried that in the past and there always seems to be a conflict with other contests. You can't please everyone.

It's highly unlikely I'll be sending reminders after tomorrow, unless I remember to send one when in Branson. Please mark your calendar, tie a string around your finger, or do whatever is necessary to remember to tune in to the SSS this Sunday evening from 7:00-9:00pm (CDT). As always, complete rules are on the group's website, 4SQRP.com, under "operating activities".

Hope to meet many of you in person Friday or Saturday.

72,

John, AA0VE

The Wednesday net(s)

Wayne Dillon
 

Good morning all,
Charles's comments last week coalesced some of my recent thoughts about the continuation of the Wednesday net on 80m. I feel that we are at the Spring/Summer changeover conditions and that 80m that early is almost played out.
I worked the NAQCC Mid West net (I'm the Mid West NCS) last evening on 80m, had a couple of checkins but the noise was between S7-9 most of the time. I've had some success on 40m during the daylight hours and some success after dark on 80m, especially when the terminator passes and I'm in complete darkness, so, this is what I propose...
For this Wednesday we revert back to 7.122 at 19:30 CDT (00:30z) and qsy to 3.564 at 20:00 CDT (01:00z) to see how conditions play out. If it works OK then we can make that a permanent change for the summer/autumn and take a view on reverting back to 80 in the winter. As an added benefit I feel that there may well be more 4SQRPers with an antenna that will "go" on 40 than on 80 so more will have the opportunity to participate.
OK, Over to you all, what are your opinions/thoughts/ideas? Let me know.
​Be blessed all and have a grand day,
Wayne - NQ0RP​.

Wire Jpoles

That ARRL article came out just as I got my license and I
had a new dual band HT. I built the antenna and it worked.
Later when I borrowed an SWR meter I found that the antenna
was way off, about 4:1 SWR. I now make wire jpoles with a
piece of 450 ohm ladder
line about 19" long and a half wave single wire
attached to one side of the ladder line. It does work well
on both bands as checked by an antenna analyzer. I can post
dimensions if anyone is interested.

Please post dimensions.  I have some 450 ohm window line that I would like to use for a J-pole.

Wire Jpoles
That ARRL article came out just as I got my license and I had a new dual band HT. I built the antenna and it worked. Later when I borrowed an SWR meter I found that the antenna was way off, about 4:1 SWR. I now make wire jpoles with a piece of 450 ohm ladder line about 19" long and a half wave single wire attached to one side of the ladder line. It does work well on both bands as checked by an antenna analyzer. I can post dimensions if anyone is interested.
