I'm looking for something that gives about 1 amp at 12 Volts and is regulated. Linearly! And is not terribly expensive so I can buy a few of them.

I suppose an alternative would be a very RF quiet switching wall wart if someone has first hand knowledge of one of those......

bring your comfy cw

Dale Putnam
 



Bring your comfy cw to the Rocky Mountain Regional and Continental net.

I'll match your speed, everyone practices at a different speed, and it is great practice

to copy different speeds. See you on 20m 14.0625 - 2200z followed on 40m - 7.0625 about 2215 or so. Hope to see you there.

OT: FS: Vibroplex VibroCube paddles

Jim Sheldon
 

Anybody with a heavy fist like mine and need something that is hard to
move around on your operating desk when you send CW? I have for sale an
excellent condition Vibroplex VibroCube set of paddles. This is actually
the Standard, Upgraded model with the jeweled pivot bearings and the
black crinkle powder coat finish. It's around 2 years old and I don't
use it anymore as I was digging through some old stored boxes from my
military career and I found the old Vibroplex "Vibro Keyer" paddles I
originally learned to send CW on, way back in 1962 so they are now
clamped to my desk.

This VibroCube, serial number 404755, is current manufacture and the
Standard upgraded model sells for $229.95 plus shipping from Vibroplex
(www.vibroplex.com). That's what I paid for it when I bought it around 2
years ago. I'll let this one go for $160 and you pay the USPS (Medium
flat rate box) shipping. I'd prefer to sell this in the U.S. as
international shipping has gotten almost impossibly high priced. I'd
prefer PayPal, but will take USPS money orders.

Please keep any replies off the reflector - email address is
w0eb@cox.net First "I'll take it" (by date/time on the email) gets right
of first refusal. Pictures are available via email.

so mark your calendars for September 9, 10, and 11, 2016 - and also for
September 8, 9, and 10, 2017. Seems like I Cant Remember Stuff as well
as I could in the past, so for a reminder I always place a note for next

Skeeter Hunt is over - what now?

Larry W2LJ <w2lj@...>
 

I've been getting several e-mails - "How do you want my log?"

Short answer?

I don't! Please ..... no adif, cabrillo, csv files.

What I do want is your log summary. It' s real easy to send and I'll include the following exmaple (mine):

Larry - W2LJ -TR23 - (Name, Call, Location)
Skeeter #13 - All CW - (Skeeter # and the mode you worked, CW/SSB/Mixed)
Single Op - (Single Op, Multi Op, Multi-multi Op)
Skeeter QSOs - 39 - (# of Skeeter QSOs)
Non-Skeeter QRP QSOs - 1 (# of Non-Skeeter, but QRP QSOs)
Non-Skeeter QRO QSOs - 1 (# of Non-Skeeter QRPO QSOS - NPOTA activators may have had a lot of these)
S/P/Cs or NPOTA Designators - 25 (# of staes, provinnces, countries, NPOTA entities that you worked)
Station Class Multiplier X4 (See da rules fror the categories)
NPOTA Bonus - 100 points (If you activated an NPOTA you get an extra 100 points! See, I told ya to!)

If you do the math correctly (gotta love spreadsheets and formulas!), you'll se my total was 12,100 points.

Log summaries are due by the end of the Sunday before Labor Day. Please remember to include your Soapbox comments and photos if you have 'em. I know that a lot of us in the QRP Community "know" each other; but one of the best things about these Outdoor QRP Sprints is to see how you operated and where you operated from. Please feel free to share, they will appear on the Skeeter Hunt Soapbox page.

I will do my best to post the scores on Labor Day and follow up with Soapbox comments a week or so, later.

And once again, thanks to all of you who make this possible and thanks to the New Jersey QRP Club for their sponsorship!

2016 Peanut Power Sprint

konewt@...
 


The Bees have swarmed and the Skeeters have been hunted. 

Now it's time for a little snack - The Peanut Power Sprint!

 
Everyone plays... Outdoors, Indoors, lo/hi power... There is even a QRO category.
 
 
Sponsored by the North Georgia QRP Club (NoGaQrP), this sprint will be held on Sept. 25, 2016 from 4PM to 6PM EDT,
(Sept. 25, 2016 - 2000z to 2200z). Full rules are on the NoGaQrP website - http://www.nogaqrp.org/PeanutPower/rules.pdf

Your QSO will be worth more if you have a Peanut number; assigned new each year (see below).
 
The club is making this one different from most other QRP QSO events.
 
1. It is open to all amateurs at any power level. We do this to attract some new folks to QRP while running their
comfortable power - QRO (<= 100 watts pls). All are welcome. This is a fun event, not cut-throat!
 
2. It is a short sprint lasting only 2 hours and not tying up the entire afternoon. Although a brief sprint, please
run reasonable CW speeds so that all can copy.
 
3. It starts late in the day (right after close of TX QSO party!) which means we start at 1PM PDT, later than most contests.
 
4. There are categories for all situations - the prestigious category in the Peanut Power category - 1W CW, 2W PEP SSB or less
and operating from the field is the GOOBER CLASS! SOTA anyone?
 
5. Plaques will be awarded for each of 5 category winners (minimum 3 entries).
   
6. Sprint encourages SSB as well as CW contacts. The exchange: RS(T), State/Province/Country (S/P/C), and your Peanut Number or Power.
   Call CQ NUT and have FUN!
 
7. Multipliers count each band/mode. Work GA (or any S/P/C) on 3 bands and 2 modes = 6 multiplier. 
Puts emphasis on switching bands and modes during the event. Check SSB on the quarter hour.
 
8. This will encourage activity on the 3 permitted bands - 40M, 20M, and 15M. See the rules for the suggested frequencies for each
band/mode. Notice we are encouraging the now almost dead portion of 40M - 7061 kHz and up.
 
9. Logs are not submitted - simply a score - but keep your log in case it's requested for verification. Watch the NoGaQrP website
for results. There is an online score calculator. It's all on the website - http://www.nogaqrp.org
 
10. Work stations holding a Peanut Power Number (PPN) for 7 points. Stations worked not having a PPN (they will send power instead)
yield 3 points. Yes, QRO stations may request a PPN. Remember, you do not declare a category until you decide to send in your entry. 
If you get halfway through and change your power, simply enter under a different category than your original intention.
 
To request your PPN, send an email to NoGaNuT PeTe at Pete@... Requests for special numbers may no longer be accommodated.
Remember to include the phrase - "PEANUT POWER NUMBER" in the subject line of your request.
 
See the current list of Peanut Power Numbers here:  http://www.nogaqrp.org/PeanutPower/2016/PPN2016.pdf

Re: You've Built it - You Don't Hear Anything - Now What?

You've Built it - You Don't Hear Anything - Now What?

david cripe <ai9e_qrp@...>
 

I've heard from a number of builders of the Ozark Patrol radio who have assembled their radios, connected an antenna, and heard.....nothing.

They have double checked solder joints, component values, antenna connections, circuit voltages, and reapplied power...and still hear nothing.

Yet there is nothing wrong with their radios!

How can this be?

Well, the simple answer is that the Ozark Patrol is a regenerative receiver, and for anyone not well familiar with their operation, it behaves very much different from any other radio you have used.  Unless you know how to operate it, you will hear....nothing.

This radio has an extra knob!  Aside from the Tuning, Bandspread, Band, and Volume controls there is another control marked REGENERATION.  That control is the key to making this radio work!

The Regenerative radio circuit, invented by Edwin Armstrong, takes a portion of the amplified antenna signal, and feeds it back into the amplifier input. Too little feedback does not give enough amplification. Too much feedback creates an RF oscillation in the amplifier, permitting reception of CW and SSB signals.  But right at the proper REGENERATION setting, the receiver is capable of amplification of the signal by thousands of times, and a weak signal suddenly comes in at good listening volume.

But how does one use this?

Operating a regenerative receiver is definitely a two-handed operation.  Left hand on the regeneration control, right hand on the tuning or bandspread control.

Rotating the REGENERATION control counterclockwise increases the feedback, sending the receiver in to oscillation.  Rotating the tuning control, you will hear the chirps of carrier signals as they pass through the receiver range.  Stop the tuning control on a loud carrier tone.  Then, slowly rotate the REGENERATION control clockwise.  You'll notice the pitch of the carrier signal varies as you adjust the regeneration control.  Simultaneously adjust the BANDSPREAD control to keep the carrier at a more or less constant pitch.  You'll notice its volume increases as you continue adjusting the REGENERATION control clockwise.  Very abruptly, the signal will leap in volume as the regeneration of the circuit hits the sweet spot.  Gently adjust both regeneration and bandspread controls to get the best volume of the signal. 

When both controls are in the right spot, you will hear signals that are completely inaudible with the controls just a few degrees off.  But when the controls are set properly, this simple circuit with only three transistors can match the performance of a receiver with much more complexity.  With practice you can tune in CW and SSB signals too.

So, if you have completed your Ozark Patrol receiver and don't hear anything, there may not be a problem, it just takes the right knowledge of how to properly tune it.  Give it a try.

This year's rules (if you want a last minute review) can be found at www.qsl.net/w2lj

Your log summaries and photos and soapbox comments are due by two weeks from Midnight, tonight. Please mail them to w2lj@arrl.net

And I know I don't have to tell any of you this, as QRPers and portable ops specialists are the most level headed Amateur Radio ops out there ....... B UT
This is meant to be a fun event! Don't take any unneccessary risks or chances that could put you or anyone else in harm's way. Should the weather turns iffy, please always opt in favor of safety and caution. Family and friends ALWAYS come first - Amateur Radio should be way, way down that list of priorities. The wise Skeeter is the one who always knows there will be other days to fly!
