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.

You will find that the SCAF filter makes an amazing difference. I use a Chinese one on my MFJ Cubs with excellent results.

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.

Wayne I know what you mean about 40 meters I think I spent almost all my time on 40 even with poor band conditions. Alos my 20 SST got in to France a few weeks ago  I got rid. of the mega buck rigs and just have the Alinco  RS8T. And my Fpx-3 on a good day gets 100+ mile contacts. That's it for now. Touch phone is hard on the eyes.  73 For now BOB. AF2DX

During the last storm, the high winds sent my stealth 40M loop to the antenna-eating sand dune. Have gathered it up and will raise it yet again - hopefully later today or tomorrow. 

As far as melting solder, am in the middle of two restorations - Hallicrafters SX-130 and S-38C.  Thought they would make good partners with my NS-40 and Magic Box.
