NS-40 is back

david cripe <ai9e_qrp@...>
 

For those who missed out on an opportunity to get an NS-40 last weekend, I kit as many as my schedule permits, seeing how my employee KE0JOL is ALWAYS busy with homework and orchestra rehearsals, I'm not getting much help!  I finished 10 more tonight, they are up on eBay, good luck!

Re: What's going on around your shack?

 

Not much here but I pulled out the old MFK 5 WATT CW rigs and went over them/
No fancy readout but now that the old FBS stations were shut down,there is 1 more pot that can be turned for better sensitivity
The 40 meter has both CW filter and  keyer installed and the 20 meter has the CW filter
APPX 6 watts under the MFJ Power supply

MFJ-9015. I worked on making the front panel at the builder's meeting
at Joe W0MQY's house Thursday evening, and today I'm painting it in
between working on other projects.

Sometimes it's so hard to take time away from family to work on radio

Hi-Per-Mite Filter

WA0ITP
 

Our very popular Hi-Per-Mite does a great job also - the web page is here.
http://www.4sqrp.com/HiPerMite.php 

The links under the Documentation header show how well this little filter performs, you can actually hear it in action .  It is a very pleasant sounding narrow band pass filter, and is amazing in crowded band condx.  As a band pass filter it also reduces or eliminates power line hum that is sometimes heard in DC receivers.  SCAFs are low pass, still a good filter but different from a band pass. 

Pse checkout the links, I'm sure you'll be impressed, the price is right and it's an American product.

Bob,

Maybe you should switch back to tube rigs.  When I was a kid the rigs themselves warmed my bed room quite well.  Hi Hi!

Cut in a permanent cable entrance early this year and installed a new
storm window since no cables were sneaking out under the main window any
more.

Put two new dual band 2m/70cm antennas up, one for voice and the other
for APRS on Memorial Day with runs of LMR-400 up the tower.

Dug in a pair of conduits between the cable entrance and the tower on
Independence Day and installed new runs of LMR-400 between the entrance
box and the tower box where there is a bulkhead bus grounding buss bar.
Connected to the shack cables in the entrance box with PolyPhasers, and
all of this is bonded to the ground system.

Built and put up a new doublet that I use primarily on 80 and 160m.
Used PE jacketed stranded CopperWeld from the Wireman for the flat top
as well as that style of 450 ohm window lead. I completed that just
prior to Field Day. The doublet is connected to an Array Solutions open
wire lighting protector.

Made up cables using LMR-240 from the shack to the PolyPhasers. The
extra shielding seems to have helped.

Worked the KS QSO Party.

Not a whole lot else!

Still have a Magic Box and Ozark Patrol to complete. Perhaps this
winter those will get done.

I'm finally getting the SS-40TX put together.

I need to make a couple more jumpers and I can start
getting the RX and TX lashed up and in a box.

I was doing the tune-up as I went along with the parts placement,
as the instructions said. Things were sort of odd. I finally
figured out I had swapped 68 pf where 6.8 pf was supposed to be!

I hope to be able to use it this winter.

My cobbled up LCR meter is dying. I need to either rebuild
it on a new circuit board or just buy one of the ones
available on ebay for about $20 and put it in the same box.
I waited too long and never did buy the AADE one.

And, I'm running a 100 watt LPFM radio station out of
my radio shack / test bench / home office. The transmitter
is on 24x7 and the fan is noisy. I really need to either
buy a shed or build a small building here on the property
where I can put this LPFM stuff and get it out of the house.
