Phil:

Terry said he would be unable to run the net this morning and hoped someone would take his place.  I guess you did, but maybe a little too late for those standing by.  As usual, I forgot all about it until I received your email a few minutes ago.

Here is a link to one in Europe that I have used several times previously.  IT IS POTENT!
It's really amazing to hear what your signal is sounding like on the other end of the circuit.  

It is multi-user.  Enjoy!

Re: Tonight's 40m net

Hello All,

Whadda Dummy!

Tonight the rig was " The " L'il Giant with the single 6T9 tube running 4
Watts output. I had a QSO with N5RDN 65 or so miles away just before the net
on 7120. I changed crystals and when the net started I showed no output, even
on the lowest milli-Watt scale, there was almost nothing showing. It was Malox
and Alka-Seltzer time because the net had already started! Then I noticed as I
called Wayne that the field strength meter was showing it's usual good
strength inside the shack. I had left the forward/reflected SWR switch in the
reflected position. After 57 years I am still making beginners mistakes. hi

Thanks to all who make my Wednesday evenings interesting I look forward to
this net and those who do everything behind the scenes.

73,

Sam Neal N5AF

Hi Wayne, 

You were 549 to 559 here in OK City.  I was using my HW-8 that I built in 1984, and you sounded good.  Too bad my 2W were not enough for the other direction.

GE Folks,
In the interests of full disclosure I was running my FT920 at the 1 watt level (QRPOmeter measured) and that seemed to do OK. Thanks for putting up with the mistakes, the robot is away for service so the human had to do it :)
A good net tonight, although conditions went down the tubes fast as we approached 20:00 local. Here's the results:

Hi Rich. Just one quick question reguarding U4 pin 8  to ground. Ok to tie it directly to Gnd or should I use my 100 ohm test probe.
Tnx Bobby

Hey Bobby,
Not a problem...
Terry sent these instructions to a fella for doing a calibration without pulling the resistors.

“  You can temporarily tack the test jumper back in and tie pin 8 of U4 to ground to re-calibrate if you don't want to have to pull those resistors. The goal of cal-ing without the resistors in place is to force U4-8 to 0v."

I would suggest that you resolder the 100 ohm 2W resistors..top and bottom. This ensures that you have a solid connection. Let me know if you have a problem after your recal, etc.

Tonight's 40m nets

Wayne Dillon
 

Yep, I'll be there and rearing to go, it's funny though, as most of you know I'm on the "temporary" indoor antenna, a 1/2 size G5RV stretched out at the apex of the roof in the attic. All the classic 1/2 size dimensions with about 25' of RG58 down to the shack. I can't believe how well the beast is working on 40 and 20. Joined in on the NAQCC sprint for about an hour last night (Operated as WQ5RP on 20m) and I was putting signals into NY, FL, NC PA. Then I got around to measuring the output (on the QRPOmeter, what else?) seems I was operating 0.97 watts!!!!!!
Let's see what 40 yields tonight (y'all get the full 5 watts tonight!).

Seneca Area Saturday Luncheon Gathering

David Bixler <qrp@...>
 

Hi folks:

The Seneca area 4SQRP luncheon gathering will be this upcoming Saturday, February 15th. Lunch is at 11:00 at the Country Cupboard restaurant in beautiful downtown Seneca MO.

By the way, I saw a posting that the Kansas QRP'ers are planning a lunch meeting over in their area. That's great! No reason why there can't be local area gatherings all over the 4SQRP territory. There's plenty of opportunities for everybody to have some fun.

The Seneca weather forecast is looking pretty nice for Saturday! Maybe spring is finally on the way.

OzarkCon is less than 2 months away.....


Re: Luncheon Gathering Saturday

KK0S
 

Well, the temperature has finally gotten above freezing and I'm setting here in Park City watching 9+ inches of snow melt away.  Our weather gurus are calling for warming temperatures and nothing in the way of freezy skid-stuff for the rest of this week.  It looks like that by Saturday, the road to Beto Junction should be all thawed out.  

How about it?  Is anyone here in Kansas or the KCMO area up for a 4SQRP get together at the truck stop restaurant at Beto Junction?  Maybe we could do a show 'n tell while we are there or maybe even a mini-tailgate.  Reply to the group and we'll see if it can happen.  I've been cooped up in the house too long....
