Good afternoon
I plan to be in Iceland in June.  I will be taking my KX2.  I will set up a schedule of when I will be on and what frequencies, and will send it on this group.
I would like to determine the best uncrowded frequencies and best times for QRP on 40 and 20.  Any suggestions?
I may try a counterpoise draped into seawater.

Strong Signals to you all !

Greg,

The rev 1.45 (2021) Soup'er Up'er will work just fine across all flavors of the Bayou Jumper.

If you plan to use a S.U. with the original (White Face) Bayou Jumper, build the S.U. per the the latest instructions and use D23, not a jumper wire.

Then install the Soup'er Up'er according to the older S.U. manual, and you will need to use the drilling instruction (template) on the original B.J.

As instructed in the rev 1.45 S.U. use 33k for R36 as defined in the rev 1.45 build manual.

Enjoy your kit and have fun with the Bayou Jumper.

If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me direct.

I believe that you are correct.
Use the manual for the older version of the Bayou Jumper.

David Martin can shed more light on this for you.

I think from reading, that the new SOUPER UPPERs will work fine with old
BAyou Jumpers, but that I'll have to read the new manual for souper
upper assembly and the old manual for how to hook it up.  If, so, that's
fine.

SO:

  Is it sensible to put a 2021 SOUPER UPPER in an original Bayou Jumper?

Bayou Jumper Activation Today (May 9) at 2 PM

griffithsesq.robert
 

I will be deploying my Bayou Jumper this afternoon (Sunday, May 9), beginning at about 2 PM Eastern Time, in Franconia Community Park, Harleysville, Southeastern Pennsylvania. Frequencies planned are 7.114 and 7.122 MHz. I believe that another station, (W3OTZ) will also be on the air there for perhaps about an hour with a Pixie. 73. Griff NE3I

Excellent!  I have ordered one.
It will be interesting to try to folow a single signal which drifts during my transmit cycle.  Once I get the hang of that, it will be much better than the BJ without.
Thank you all who made this possible!

Order one. Complete the transaction then order the second. I did that with the BJ. They both arrived the same day.

Exactly.   There may have been security keypads that once used DTMF
but I can't imagine any reason for doing so today with digital security
systems.
The tone is just to confirm that you've entered a digit since the
keypads provide little if any tactile feedback.
That has been my observation. DTMF could be used internally but it's not
audible.

The most plausible explanation is someone either gave him the door
code or he watched someone enter it on the keypad, which in my mom's
facility is within easy view and where at one time the code was
written on a post-it note nearby!
That is my thought, that he watched the finger motions. It's not hard to
observe as most of the codes are probably four digits, at least the ones in
the facilities I've visited.

Humorous aside, years back when my mom was in the same facility my brother
and I were going to leave and had forgotten the code and some of the
residents were nearby and they told us the code without asking! It was a
bit unnerving.

The funny part is that the "Morse Code" story was swallowed hook line
and sinker by what passes for "journalists" today.   I applaud the
fellow for having what obviously turned out to be a good cover story!
Agreed. However, it's hard to fault journalists when many hams, who one
might think are more technologically informed, also swallowed it hook line
and sinker.

Sigh...

Re: Morse Code wins again

 

IT seems to me that in a facility like that where a keypad is used to
enter a security code that differing tones on the buttons is a failure
of design. As I recall, the facility my dad is in has such keypads and
they emit a confirmation tone, but it's the same tone for all buttons.
