Might also want to be cautious about mentioning a popular vacation destination too.. 
that is also apparently forbidden, even tho there is a lot of 4S members that travel to it,
and while at that particular destination operate their QRP rigs from 4SQRP.


Have a great day,

Subject: Re: [4SQRP] My apologies
 
For the life of me I don't know what I did or said that was wrong, but the thread about that old QST project got removed, so I must have stepped one some toes.  In a most innocent manner I was just trying to get some information about it, if it would still be usable under current FCC standards, and was it worth building.  I didn't even have a circuit for it and didn't have a copy of the 39 year old QST that had the project in it.

Anyhoo, even though it was not a commercial kit by some other source, not 4SQRP, it still cannot be mentioned on here.  Please don't ask me any questions about my station, because I have some non-4SQRP rigs and cannot name them on here.


30 Meter Cricket

 

Any idea when the 30 meter Cricket may again be available?  Is there a list where a potential buyer can commit to buy one when they come back?

Since it related to a non-commercial old-time QST project, I don't know what I did wrong to get my query deleted...I am hesitant to ask anything about QRP equipment unless it is something sold by 4SQRP, as I don't understand what I did wrong and am afraid to talk about any QRP circuit which is not for a 4SQRP product.

New revB Bayou Jumper on the air

Jim, N5IB
 

Tomorrow (2 Jan) from 1500Z 'till 1559Z I will be one of the SKCC's K3Y special event operators
operating as K3Y/5 on probably 40, 30, and maybe 20 depending on propagation.
I'll be running 50+ watts with an old TS-430S

But........
During the preceding hour (1400Z to 1459Z) I will try try to put a revB Bayou Jumper beta build on the air at about 7020.1 kHz.
As you may have read in earlier messages, The 'Jumper is coming back! This is one of the beta kits - just completed and checked out.

73 and Happy New Year

Hello Dave, Paul
Happy New Year.

I was impressed with the array of colors!

Hi Paul- and Happy New year!

The various high-end knobs are likely manufactured by Kilo Corp.  Digikey and Mouser carry a bewildering array of choices.  They're all in the $6-$7 ballpark, so they're not cheap.

Re: Happy New Year

2020- wow, what a year. My Happy New Years wish is for 2021 to be much better for everyone.

My special thanks to all who ordered my e-book. Prior to covid-19 I procured my breathing medicine for $10 to $20 a month. With all the travel and shipping limitations due to covid I am forced to procure the meds in the USA at $98 a month. Your orders have assisted that without cutting my food budget. Hopefully that will continue in 2021. See more at QRZ.com /db/W4BWS

So Happy New Year 2021 and for all to have a more healthy, secure and prosperous 2021.

I will be looking for everyone on slow key night December 31 and during January 1.
