Re: New Kit Releases, Crystal Spotter and Ozark-17

Mark Janzer
 

FWIW, My local Hobby Lobby has the 288743S and the 288743M.
I purchased the medium size box, as the crystal spotter board fits in sideways and allows for a side storage area for a few crystals.
Price with 40% coupon -/+ $1.60

Note that the 40% off coupon will no longer be offered by Hobby Lobby, permanently, after February.

Thanks for that report and photo, Josh.
Nice looking build, and I see you added the socket pins.

Was that box the #288743S called out in the manual, that we're all thinking is unobtanium?
Or is it another box that fits the board?
If it's a different one, please pass along the stock number.

Just thought I'd share that the kit new Crystal Spotter kit arrived in good shape!  Was a real quick assembly, with well put together documentation!   It's an ideal first Pittsburgh style board, if you've never done one.  Managed to pick up a matching box at the local Hobby Lobby, too!  Thanks for the great kits and the quick response to interest in this project!

Hi Larry,

I'll give you a quick answer here, then post a longer comment over on the Bayou Jumper sub-group.
Best to concentrate the discussions over there. It'll make for quicker help and more Jumper builders are likely to see any posts....

Short answer: That apparently low Q2 Drain voltage is not an issue.
I just checked my 100% working beta build unit and the Q2 drain varies from 5.15 V to 5.64 V as the regen control is swept over its range.

I'll comment more over on the Bayou Jumper group.

Somehow I missed this offering when it was posted in the past.  I would easily be game for 2 or probably 3 sets of boards if they are offered again.  Completely retired now, so hope to have the time to work on projects like this (as well as building my backlog of kits 😀 ).

Re: Schematics for K8IQY Designer Dream Boards

What would really be cool is a group build of something using these boards. Just a lashup type of transmitter/receiver - with an option to use some sort of VFO - there are a zillion types of digital VFO's out there...

Some of us need a little help. We understand the building blocks but don't always know how to put it all together
