Re: Lightning threats

Dale Putnam
 

Very simple.. access as much radar and Weather info as possible.. if there is T-strom activity within 25 miles.. DON'T.. 

Normally one would expect 5 or 10 mi warnings.. in portable ops tho.. 25 works. I've seen... and felt strikes from 30 away..

and that is as close as I ever want!!


Have a great day,

I've been living in North Dakota for awhile now, and I'm thinking of putting White Butte (highest point in this relatively flat state) on the air, SOTA style.  BUT I am concerned about the potential lightning hazard.


Now all you 4SQRP folks live in a high-lightning environment. So how do you handle the lightning hazard when operating portable on a summit, or even on flat ground?  One flash and you're toast, literally, so it's nothing to be taken lightly.


Bad enough at home, but out in the great outdoors it could be even worse, during portable ops.

So how do y'all deal with it?

Hello to Dave and all 4sqrp members for the first time,

This kit your talking about looks like a fun project Dave. I might have a few old rocks someplace in the shack. If you could, please let me know when it's available.

My quick story. I've been an active ham since 1969, first as WNØERZ and now as NVØP. My wife Nancy is a ham also NØHX. I've got a well appointed shack in the basement, a small antenna farm on 2 1/2 acres in Wayzata MN and I enjoy many aspects of the hobby. 

In 2012 I became quite handicapped from a stroke. I lost my job and will have to move by 2018, long story. My new residence may limit me to ham sticks mobile and random wire covert antennas on HF. QRP will be the way to go, so I'm playing with it now and looking forward to wherever this road takes me.

Good morning, everyone!  I wanted to tantalize everyone with a sneak peak of the new 4SQRP kit coming out soon.  It is Jim N5IB's famous 'Bayou Jumper' transceiver!  His presentation at Ozarkcon 2016 describing this design, as a solid-state version of the legendary 'Paraset' transceiver received so much interest that Jim and 4SQRP have worked together to make it into a kit!  


The receiver is based on the well-proven and well-behaved regenerative design of Charles Kitchin N1TEV.  Using varactor tuning, the tuning range is about 120 KHz in the 40M band, and tests show it can hear a MDS of -120 dBm, which is as good as many commercial rigs.


The transmitter is 4SQRP's NS-40, a bulletproof, 5W crystal controlled Class-E design using spiral PCB traces for the PA low-pass filter.  All harmonics are better than 50 dB below carrier, and the PA runs about 85% efficient, without a heat sink.  The rig includes a 7030 and a 7122 crystal, and a FT-243 crystal socket so you can use your old Novice crystals.


The rig has a spotting feature so you can zero-beat your receiver to the transmit frequency before transmission.  The receiver uses an RF pre-amp to isolate the regenerative oscillator from the antenna so you don't QRM the band, and has an adjustable RF attenuator to help with overload from strong signals.  The receiver is also unique in that except instead of using an LM386 audio amp, it uses a special low-noise IC, capable of driving headphones or an external speaker to comfortable sound levels.  In keeping with 4SQRP design philosophy of keeping things simple and easy, there is only a _single_ toroid to wind, solder pads are generously sized, components are well spaced, well labeled and all through-hole, and internal wiring is kept to a minimum.  The average builder should be able to complete this kit in two or three evenings.


Everything mounts in a standard Hobby Lobby wooden box, which you'll have to supply yourself.  Inside the box there is plenty of room to add an 8xAA battery pack to make it self contained, and many other modifications you may want to customize your rig.


Beta tests of prototypes are wrapping up, parts are being ordered, and it will be available before the end of the year!  It has been a fun project to develop!

Well the band was pretty bad!
I worked Paul at 8:00.
At 8:30 I worked Paul Darryl, KK5IB, Paul NONBD, and tried to Work CHAS W2SH.
Chas, you were in and out of my noise, but I did finally get all of your call sign.
I may have some man made noise in my shack again, I had a S5 or better noise level.
Thanks all

Here's what the band sounded like here tonight.  Important Note: I have about 70 minutes more darkness than you gentlemen in the 4S heartland and that gives me an advantage, mainly on the listening side though it may help a bit on the xmit side.


Nobody answered my CQs at 0100Z.  I heard Johnny's call-ups begin a few minutes later.  He swung around 449 and very briefly hit 569.  He didn't answer me but KK5IB called in with a 559 here and Johnny gave him a 579 (a bit of confusion here was that Johnny called him "Peter"??).  I tail ended KK5IB with my callsign but no luck.  I answered every one of Johnny's CQs with no luck.  Heard his "QRZ?" at 0140Z but it was followed by "nil".  At 0143Z I got his acknowledgement and copied his 339 report.  I gave him a 559.  So it turned out to be a QSO!


At odd moments between 0100Z and 0145Z I switched over to 7.1220 MHz.  Nothing heard while listening and no response to a couple of dozen CQs at different moments.


It's great to have many weeks of 4SQRP quietude Wednesday evenings come to an end.  Hopefully it will last for several months to come.

The flux numbers were crap today but I have made 6 contacts today. 3 were from the town square. I was trying out my new to me KX1... it is pretty sweet. I used a 28 ft hunk of wire in the trees and a 16 ft counterpoise and it loaded on 20, 30 and 40. Two contacts were on 40 and one was on 20. Pretty fun.

When are the nets going to start up. 80 is just a dull roar tonight but I believe it could be worked. What say you?

GM all,

I apologize for dropping the net 80M net without notice.  Other interests have relegated the net to a low priority for me, and they don't rely on propagation or other parties interest for fulfillment. 

If anyone would like to take over the Wed night 80M net, pse feel free  to jump in and make an announcement.  I'll check in fairly often as time permits.
