Bayou Jumper Regen setup

pkfspo2fvm3t4okbh2yd3tkzw6bblzcdrjoscwip@...
 

I got my Bayou Jumper up and running this evening...the transmit side is fine...although my crystals are both a bit low but that is not my problem...

My receiver side is working but I have no idea WHERE it is on the frequency spectrum...I can pick up allot of Spanish speaking stations but can't figure out what freq they are on...I tried using my General Coverage Receiver  but still can't figure out where they are.

Also, the spot function doesn't seem to be working BUT I presume that is because the tuning is way off...I have poured over the instructions but can't find a solution.

Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated....thanks

I ordered one -- I want to evaluate its potential as an Electronics Merit Badge project for the Boy Scouts.

Monitoring 7 point 112

Bill Wood
 

Hey Guys and Gals
Don’t know how many you guys worked on SKN
nor this afternoon, but thought I’d report my rather
uneventful events ; )
Listened hard on 7.023 for quite awhile and while
I did hear a couple QRO stations, did not hear any
strong enough to hold a qso with. Listened for quite
a while also on 7.112 looking for a copyable signal and
all sigs were down in the weeds… Did hold a nice QSO
with a gent outside of San Francisco otherwise not too
much in the qso department, mostly noise : )
BUT I did want to report on a couple of signals. Heard
several of you guys pounding out good clean signals, but
were too far down in the weeds to even try to contact you
QSB and the noise level were something else : )
Two signals were worth pointing out. Had fun trying to
copy a chirp, but this one was different, it chooiped up
sometimes and then down, and another sounding like it
was square wave 120 cycle modulated oscillator. : )
Fun signals, but too weak for me to catch and communicate
with. Just to let you know I heard you, but did not hear well.
I have been hanging around 7.112 but other then an occasional
digital signal, the other ones were out there but weak. I then
suppose my signal to also be down in the weeds too, : )
One of these days : )

You might want to support another ham and order the ferrites from Howie WA4 PSC. He is the owner of Pro Audio Engineering. He has clamp-on ferrites at reasonable cost. See https://proaudioeng.com/fair-rite-ferrite-products/

You might try ebay, it looks like you can get them quite a bit cheaper.  Not sure how they compare to the $5 -7 ones but it might be worth a try for around $1 each.

I'm interested in buying some of the ferrites that snap around a coax or
cable. I was really wanting to have a stock of them on hand but my
initial research is showing prices around $6-$7 EACH! Is that the going
rate for these things?

Look at Mouser. Some years ago I ordered a number of them in quantity
from them. For example I have Fair Rite #0443164251 which is a mix 43
for VHF and will fit and RG-58 size cable. I also have Fair Rite
#0431164281 which is a mix 31 for HF and likewise fits RG-58 sized
cable. I found Mouser's price to be much more reasonable than other
places even with shipping, though that has been a number of years ago.

Bayou Jumper accessory

The 4S-Tuner would be a very useful accessory for the jumper if one would want to use a wire antenna.

Bayou jumper

keith ford
 

The original is a nice looking rig.  But after looking at the build booklet and comparing it to the EMRFD, the circuits are somewhat similar. Since I have the TX almost done and the RX started. I need to figure the best way to package them. And wrap my head around the 4p3t switch.  I ordered one earlier, when it arrives I will attempt to consolidate the circuits.  

I have enjoyed the comments,

Re: Bayou Jumper strikes again

Jim Sheldon
 

So did you!  I haven't heard 40 meters that good in this close in 3-4 years!  Too band it isn't like this all the time - maybe next summer, but then the QRN will be nasty.  Been sitting on 7.122 for over an hour now and yours was the only signal that even popped out of the noise.  Well, you got to hear another Bayou Jumper anyway.  Love the heck out of that little wood box radio.  Congrats to the design team for such a nice kit!

My Bayou Jumper is lurking on 7.122 (well actually a little below -
7.12189) and I've been working on getting one of the 7.122 crystals I
have as close as possible to the actual frequency it should be on.
Heard Paul, N0NBD calling CQ and his signal was actually pretty loud for
40 meters between Humboldt and Park City, KS - only a little over 100
miles (102.2 according to QRZ). 599 signals to start out with and then
QSB took things down to 559 to 569 but still all in all a very good
short QSO.

I'll be listening around there for another half hour or so.

Try replacing R42 with 1.8k resistor.

I am calibrating a QRPometer, I cannot get the display to go to 1.00

it will only go to .89.

Yes I did not install the three resistors yet, Yes the test jumper is in place. Yes I set the 5 volt level.

Any ideas??
