K7T at the Titan Missile Museum Saturday, April 26 -- or...

John Stevens (K5JS)
 

 The Arizona ScQRPions crawl at night.  Here's a great warm-up for QRPTTF and SOTA operating events Saturday May 3.

A Special Event honoring 20 years of the AZ ScQRPions QRP Club will be held April 26, 1400-2330 UTC at the unique relic of the cold war nuclear deterrent: the TITAN MISSILE MUSEUM in Green Valley AZ dedicated by Ronald Reagan to creating an ongoing awareness of the Armagedon that would result from a nuclear exchange.  Everyone should be guided through the silo and control rooms to get a sense of the reality of it all. 

The CLUB will use the site's primary antenna -- a broadband 90' DISCONE with a fairly flat SWR from 1.8-30 Mhz, with low nodes in most of the ham bands. We will operate with QRP rigs such as the KX3, K3, QRP+, ICOM-703, ATS-4, Wilderness Sierra and who knows what else. QRP frequencies will be used to the extent they produce steady contacts.  Otherwise take note of the following operating Fregs: SSB -- 14270Mhz, 18130Mhz, 21280Mhz, & 28370Mhz, +/-20Khz; c.w. --14020, 18072, 21030, 28015, +/-10Khz. We will call " CQ TITAN de K7T". 

Details and photos of the DISCONE monster can be viewed at the following links:


Special QSL on receipt of your QSL to

Ade Weiss W0RSP, 810 N. Placita la Canoa, Green Valley, AZ 85614

QRO stations certainly invited to let us know we're getting out -- and to practice copying weak DX signals and local QRP signals! Win-win!

Check http://www.QRPSPOTS.com for most current frequency info.  

Simultaneous operation of three stations on the Discone is planned using a triplexer and bandpass filters.  An in-band SSB 20m - 10M experiment will be attempted with additional antennas separated from the Discone.  Note that 12M, 17M CW/SSB and 30M may also be used as this is not a contest, but an outdoor operating event on a nice 90F+ spring day!

Drop by for a QSO!  Make our day!  CU de TITAN!

Gang,

A quick note on HAMjitsu...I'm currently working on a major redesign and framework migration.  If you visit the site and notice old spots (part of the reason for the overhaul) don't hesitate to email me and request a restart.  This will be the modus operandi until the new server is up and running.

Thanks!!! :-)

Hi Guys,

Which tracking and propagation sites for DX do you like best?

I signed up for silver membership with eQSL and they have a nice
interactive tracking site with world map and info/station at each end.
This is based on incoming logs for the last few hours etc. It shows
interaction and distance between stations. QRZ has some stuff too.

I'm going to revisit the reverse beacon network stuff from OzCon too.

What about the propagation forecasts. What do you like? What's
science-based?

Re: Qrpometer

Rich Fowler <k8meg@...>
 

GM John,
There is some discussion about this topic in the Yahoo Group. If you are a member, go into Conversation and search for BNC. There may be some pictures in the photo section also.
Bottom line is there are not exact replacements that will drop in. You will have to hack the PCB to make it fit. Another alternative that some have use is mounting the QRPometer in a case and wiring to chassis mounted BNCs.

The profiles shown on EBay are pretty standard. Mouser part number 565-674, for example. Right angle profiles will be pretty much the same for this part.

Hope this helps!
72,
Rich K8MEG






I am building the QRPOMeter, and want to use BNC connectors instead of phono. I don't want to use adapters either.

So does anyone have a part number for a PCB mount BNC that will fit?

Thanks, John NS5Z
