Look for the CW Academy button on the left hand side - no cost, just find an open enrollment period...I believe the current "class" is full.

Re: relearning CW...you are right bro...I'm only copying about 20% of good cw (20-30 wpm) but have got myself on re-training...now am only about 10-12 wpm...don't like to send faster than I can copy and vice-versa.

You'll find my input on page 3. The receiver is sooooooooo quiet and a joy to use during contests.

I am glad to see that you have a KX3 Jeremy. I am thinking real hard about buying but I also have been looking at the TenTec Argo VI. Do you know of anyone in the club that has the Tentec QRP rig. They are selling it with the roofing filter and the hand for $849.

Thanks, Bobby.  I got with Darryl, KK5IB, and realized just how rusty I am in my CW.  Sorry to subject you to that, Darryl!  Sounds like maybe you hooked up with someone (I'm still listening in).

I'm gonna start getting serious about re-learning CW, so I can start having fun with you guys!

Re: Anyone out there tonite?

There are a few Argo's in the group, I know, but not sure who all has them.  I've been salivating over the KX3 for a couple of years now, since my first trip to Ozarkcon in 2013 when I got to go hands on with Jim Sheldon's KX3.  Recently had a little bit of money come my way, and the XYL said I could finally make the jump.  It just got delivered this afternoon, and set it up tonite.  Definately sounds good tho!  You wouldn't go wrong if you picked it up, I don't think!

Greetings all,

In spite of my best intentions I have a few unbuilt kits on hand that I will not be building in the foreseeable future.

I have a Cyclone 40m transceiver (SN113) that needs a good home.  If you missed out on one before they were retired, or just need another solder smoke fix, please contact me directly at:

and make me an offer.  Plus it contributes to the KX3 kitty.  :-)

I would be very interested in an SSB XTR.  I have a kit CW XMTR and a kit RVCR.  A crystal controlled XMTR for 40, 20, and/or 17 would be great for me...

Re: Modular Rig Group Build

Greetings,

Sounds like it could be fun. I have been working towards plug-and-play modules with my Beach 40 project so I can swap out experimental sections, this sounds very similar.

My first thoughts/concerns are about the the backplane/motherboard architecture. Any ideas?

Great idea Mike,

This would make a great group build project on the reflector.  There could be many contributors taking on a specific board.  Diz's toolkits might be employed where he has them available, and others could be incorporated from other sources, scratch built, or boards designed and purchased.  The Dream boards could be employed if desired also, there are some FB circuits on them.

Anyone want to get the ball rolling, coordinate, or be the cheerleader?

I agree with your thoughts. I would like to perhaps see a mother board approach to the rig. A set of basic modules: 
audio amplifier
crystal filter
product detector
receive mixer
receive input bandpass filter
master VFO/VXO
transmit mixer
transmit driver stages
transmit final amplifier
transmit low  pass filter
etc
that plug into a mother board for inter connect. Add to that prototype boards that would be used to replace various modules with other implementations for experimentation. Maybe provisions on the mother board to add an Arduino to control a DDS replacement for the VFO, a display, keyer etc.

Basic package would be simple modules to get a working radio. In some ways this would be a modular kit something a bit like the Tentec Rebel. Maybe even have provision on the mother board for a balanced modulator/filter for SSB generation some time in the future. Perhaps a partial chassis for the rig could have a front panel big enough for several knobs for various controls and a display. 

Maybe a place on the mother board to plug in a tuner module. The whole package would not be super small but rather large enough to be able to easily work on (and build).
