I have reserved campsite 26&27 at riverside west campground for a portable ops field day event, there are many other available campsites at this location, great big cottonwood trees, I mean antenna supports, nice shower house, not usually very crowded, all are welcome come out and play radio if you can, grab a campsite and spend the night

OT: Dot Stabilizer add on for Bug Key - update

Jim Sheldon
 

Information pertaining to the "Dot Stabilizer" for semi-automatic "Bug" keys that helps eliminate the scratchy dots that occur due to "dot contact bounce" in many of them. 
 
There is a technique for using a piece of high density foam that will cure many of the problems, but not all foam is created equal and while certainly cheaper, it doesn't always work in all instances as I found from over 6 months of experimenting.  Quite by accident I found the following information and have decided to attempt a resurrection of the device. 
 
The theory and pictures of the McElroy original device can be seen at <http://artifaxbooks.com/dotstabilizer.htm> and Tom French, W1IMQ who owns and maintains that historical site, graciously posted links to several pictures of the ones that I make, mounted on 3 different make & models of my own bugs along with my email address. You can find the pictures and links near the bottom of that page.

The ones I currently make are specifically for the Vibroplex, Speed-X and McElroy keys that have the pendulum that the weights slide on. At this time, I do not make them for those with the flat pendulum such as the Vibroplex Lightning Bug, Champion or the old military J-36 bugs. I do, however, have a prototype in "beta test" that I believe will fit the flat pendulum keys so hopefully I'll be able to offer one for those models in the very near future.

Hope this clears up any questions.

Re: OT: Scratchy dot reducer for Bug type keys

w2sh@...
 

After getting the contacts nice and clean (all four of them, dits and dahs), there are a couple of more things to attend to.

When adjusting the dots, you're supposed to then be able to send a strings of dots that will end with the end of the arm resting against its damper and the dot contacts closed to give you a very long dah.  Many will see just how many dots can be sent before contact closure occurs.  I used to engage in this game of skill and could get a couple of dozen dots sent.  The trouble is that the quality of the dots later seemed to me to be somewhat irregular with such an extreme adjustment.  It is therefore best to make your  adjustment to just get 10-12 dots and then have contact closure. Such a lesser number will give you an adequate series of decent dots with a single thumb poke for any conversation, and only eight are needed to flag an "error". 

Then there is the matter of contact bounce and that results from the absence of any damping of the horseshoe shaped leaf spring that supports the movable dot contact.  I completely solved that problem by getting a small piece of very finely grained plastic foam, something your local jewelry store discards from the packaging when they sell a watch or piece of jewelry.  Cut a very small piece just long enough to fill a bit more than half of the space inside the horseshoe spring.  When it is wedged within the spring, the foam should fit loosely, but securely enough to remain in place without any adhesive.

Thanks Don for your input. 
 
Even with clean contacts, the dits can be scratchy due to the continued vibration of the spring contact as the contacts break (not on make).  Ted McElroy figured this out early on, hence the device he added to his bugs.
 
I've done a lot of experimenting with this and it WORKS providing it's properly adjusted.

Scratchy dits are usually caused by dirty dit contacts or improper adjustment on bugs.
A piece of paper pulled through the closed DIt contact can clean those contacts - repeat until no further color appears on the paper.  Adjustment of the damper to properly time the length of the dits with your dash sending speed is also important - the normal ratio is 3:1.  Many (most) bug users I have heard make the dits too short in comparison to the dashes.

Re: OT: Scratchy dot reducer for Bug type keys

Don Wilhelm <w3fpr@...>
 

Hello all,

I have heard that in some cases, my response to Jim's post was interpreted as being negative about his bug improvement offering - let me assure you it was not intended that way.
Yes, Jim's offering can help with mechanically induced "scratchy dits" problems.
One should still maintain clean contacts on bugs and straight keys - and also paddles.  Regular maintenance will take care of the dirty contacts, but it will not help with the mechanical aspects.  I believe Jim is offering a helpful product.
