One thing to keep in mind is that the crystals will be special order, in qty 1000, and not cheap.

A big boomer is just to the West and I'm hearing thunder, so have unhooked. If it passes quickly, I'll hook back up later for a few Q's.

Re: Wednesday Night 40m Net

Paul Smith
 

Skoal can shaped key is a good description. I have one and it works pretty smooth. I would like to find a Navy flameproof but usually those are out of my price range. I found mine in a junk box at a hamfest. I cleaned some dirt off it and started to use it. The round top is beat up and scratched but it works ok.

How about one of those orphaned ARC-5 transmitters that neither covered 80 or

Hello,

I monitor the boat-anchor/QRP frequencies almost all day every day and ran
across Butch KA5HRF in Lexington Texas on 7110 running his Ameco AC-1. It
sure sounded good. Be on the look out for him. He is rock-bound.

I am going to regret this but I need to sell my unbuilt SS-40 kits. I
bought them from the club a couple months ago and none of the parts
have been removed from the bags. Both are just as I received from the
club.

Price: $100 and I will pay shipping. Paypal preferred.

Re: Thurs Morn Net [1 Attachment]

Not so great here, but also not helped by my recently changed antenna situation, as described elsewhere, and of course my 70 minutes of increased daylight.

Terry was 229, and Bill not much better.  Just for giggles I dropped my callsign; just once and then QRT.

40M was in much better shape this morning.  Propagation wasn't great but still pretty good to the Four State region. Bill had 73 degrees, Bruce had 80F, and Darryl was a t 78.  I was coolest at 71.   Making it in were:

Sri I had to unhook last night but a big boomer was imminent and hit hard abt 8:20.  Lotsa rain, wind, and lightning.

Re: Wednesday Night 40m Net

Well, I'm glad to know I was loud in Elmira, NY, but I sure wasn't loud farther away.

Bill, KV6Z, was barely 449 here.  I dropped my callsign a couple of times, but no luck.

As previously explained my 76' up and 90' out inverted L came down when the tree supporting it died and was removed last month.  The only antenna up now is a 270' sloping dipole at an average height of 45'.  It works well out to about 400 miles, but not so for kilomile distances.

Well, we gave it a try.
I looked at the real-time lightning map just before the net and knew it was going to be a bit of a struggle.
 
 
I got Woody one letter at a time and never heard Charles at all.

Holy wow was that something!

 I was the last station trying to get in - N2QFD-

 I did have some up's WA9PRP was 559 at peak
                                WD9F also was great here.
                                WN0I was another 459

  Bill you were a 339 on your peaks here in NY and it was demented with the static crashes but I stuck with it. There was another NY station trying at the beginning of the net W2SH who was very loud here.

 Guess no one heard me at the end for a relay, but then again I'm sure I was hearing things (or not hearing) from all that static!


 Best 73 to all
