I listened to it today and they have a good start for a fun podcast with history, coming events, and an interview with a prominent ham.  Need some volume balance between the speakers but a fun listen.

Souped Up Bayou Jumper with Soup'er Up'er add-on board

davemrtn
 

    I have been working on an add-on board for the Bayou Jumper and now have one installed in my own Bayou Jumper.

    I call the board the Soup'er Up'er and it adds Sidetone, Fine Tuning, RX Audio Muting during transmit, and a Hi-Per-Mite CW Filter adapted to the Bayou Jumper.

    I did get approval from NM0S to use his circuit design (Hi-Per-Mite).


    Someone (I haven't requested his permission to tell you about this) kindly allowed me to piggy-back a PCB order onto an order he was placing, so I have 9 extra PCBs besides the one I built and installed in my Bayou Jumper.

    I will have my Bayou Jumper and the 9 extra PCBs at OzarkCon 2017 along with a sample instruction manual.  I only purchased enough parts to build the one for my radio so if you get one of the PCBs, you will need to order your own parts.... for now.

    The manual will include building instructions, a Soup'er Up'er schematic, hole drilling templates with dimensions and a B.O.M.


The manual will be made available (online) after OzarkCon 2017.


Photos of my Bayou Jumper with the added controls and the Soup'er Up'er PCB are posted in the Bayou Jumper Yahoo Groups photo section.


See ya' at OzarkCon 2017.....  It is ALWAYS a great and fun event.

Fw: [qfox] N4KV 40M Foxhunt Announcement

Dale Putnam
 


From qfox  reflector

the LAST FOXHUNT... the very last one..

Try not to miss your LAST chance at a 40 acre pelt, tonight!


Have a great day,

N9NE and I will be your 40M foxes this coming Tuesday evening. The hunt runs from 9:00 to 10:30 pm EDT(that's 0100 to 0230z 29 March). Todd and I will be hiding between 7030 and 7050 KHz.  

I'll start out working split, but will go simplex when the rate slows. When simplex, please call me a few 100 HZ from zero beat so others can hear me responding.

The band has been up-and-down as of late, and the move to DST will make conditions different than we have experience over the past few weeks. Additionally, there is suppose to be a geomagnetic storm hitting the earth on the 28th which could create real havoc. It should be interesting.  Last week's hunt offered some excellent conditions here in E. TN so I hope conditions will repeat.

The setup here is the Elecraft KX3 @ 5W. Antennas are a 80M dipole, 40M dipole fed with ladder line, and a 55 ft. end-fed vertical.

Good fox hunting... I will be listening for you.

Just stopped by our local Radio Shack and noticed they had a banner up  stating they're closing.  Anything in the parts drawers, ie, IC's-resistors-capacitors-transistors-etc, were 60% off.  Might be worth a visit for someone. Soldering equipment was 20% off. Enjoy!

I'm note sure if we will have extra kits at Ozarkcon, possibly, but the Cricket kit will be released For sale on the web site after OZARCON is finished.
So, we will have plenty in the near future!

When I saw Terry's reply I didn't see the pic so I was thinking "hidden oscillator " and no pic... is a joke!  That is a nice looking build.  Guess the joke was on me lol.

Good morning all, 

I've cross-posted this question in the qrpometer group, but as the traffic there is very low with it's retirement, I hope this forum may yield some answers. In the qrpometer group, I found two other posts where the author described the same problem, but neither had a resolution. 

After 3.5 years of sitting in my project bin, I put together the Qrpometer today. 

Voltage at TP1 remains at 7.8v regardless of the pot R33 setting.
I've checked the solder joints on R31, R32, U1, and C8. 
I've confirmed that the pot itself is functioning 

Can anyone share some wisdom on this one please? 

Thanks/72

This is an original "Cash Box " paraset as far as I can tell.  If it is not original, a very good replica !
