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.


73, Dave W0CH

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....

QRPOmeter for milliwatting

Hajo Dezelski <dl1sdz@...>
 

Hello,

my good 'old' QRPPmeter is working from the 1. hour very well and is nearly all the time switch in an outgoing hf-line. Especially usefull was the dummy load when I wanted to experiment with rigs without polluting the air.


but had a hard time to measure my output. 

Is there a way to improve the performance or spread the measurements from let's say 10 mW to 1 W?

That would be really fun - even if I have to buy a second QRPOmeter.

SSS Results

John Lonigro
 

I am enclosing a text file with the results from Sunday, as well as the overall standings for the top 5 operators. And I'm including some soapbox remarks as well.

Participation for February was down, compared to January, but is perhaps closer to the average. January's sprint was unusually well attended.

If you find any errors or omissions, please let me know. Otherwise, until next month,

Re: RMRc net 2300z 14.0625 today

We had a good net with 
K6MGO,
N6MY
KE6OIO
KF7WNS

Most everyone reported higher temps, than the 39-39 that I had.. and no one had the wind.. at 30mph... 
But CA had rain!! That's a good thing. And while the rest of the country is getting fairly tired of winter, 
one checkin is headed to the mountains to have more winter fun.... and another is hoping for 
May showers and flowers.. sooner than May. 

Check in, and let us know what you're doing too... 
Next Thursday, at 2300z on 14.0625


Have a great day,

I wouldn’t expect too much DX from here back to the US, Phil.  I regularly QSX for 4sqrp skeds with no luck.  However, do enjoy your visit to England, and the Abbey, and if you do fire up QRP, give us a warning and we’ll be happy to work you g/ . . . whatever.

Send in your score

John Lonigro
 

It's Monday. If you didn't participate in the SSS last night, your next chance is only a few weeks away, in March.

If you DID participate in the SSS last night, don't forget to send in your results, so I can tally them. You've got until midnight tomorrow night to get them in. This is your only reminder to send in your score. Send an email with your results to:

SecondSundaySprint@4SQRP.com

Put "Sprint" in the subject line.

Don't "reply" with your results. This is my everyday email. I have a special one set up for sprints.

So far, I've got results from five people (AA5CO, K7QO, KF7WNS, WB6HVH, and AA0VE). Keep them coming...

Thanks and 72,
