K1SWL has done it again, the Phaser!

JT Croteau
 

Just like the Warbler and PSK series of days long ago, K1SWL has done
it again by teaming up with N2APB to produce a phasing SSB QRP
transceiver for FT8 and other digital modes. With two frequencies
available and a cost of only $50 per band, we can put our DSB toys out
to pasture.

Kits start shipping Dec. 16th: https://midnightdesignsolutions.com/phaser/

I've ordered two thus far.

Bayou Jumper Paraset needing repair

Dr. James A. Potter
 
Edited

I am reaching out to anyone in the hope that you may be able to tell me someone that would be qualified to repair my Bayou Jumper Paraset transceiver.

Last week I purchased the radio off of ebay and noted the following:
1) Output was a full 5 wts.
2) Great receiver
3) only problem I noted was upon transmitting, the normal sidetone was heard and when it was not heard the sidetone was replaced by a "hum" when transmitting. As I indicated, a full 5wts were being sent out and was heard by numerous Reverse Beacon Stations. The sidetone was only heard very sporadically. When placed in Receive mode, only the normal sidetone was heard when pressing the key without a "hum".

Last night, the transmitter stopped working completely. The sidetone/hum was heard, but no signal was being sent out.

Specifics about the radio are as follows:

1)The radio is the Rev 1 containing the green panel.
2)It contains the add-on "Soup'er Up'er kit" This was the PCB version 1.42 which exhibited an issue with the sidetone not working properly when a crystal was installed.It  
  appears no fix was made on my radio per the instructions provided with the Soup'er Up'er manual under errata on page 19 of that manual.
3)The receive audio mute, fine tuning, and filter work fine.

If anyone knows of someone qualified to repair the radio, I would greatly appreciate it. Cost is no problem. I simply want to enjoy the radio.

Thank you.

To those Cricket 30 purchasers awaiting the 10.106 crystals.

 

I finally received ship confirmation for the crystals. As soon as I receive them, I will package them in envelopes and send them out. Hopefully you will see them within next two weeks depending on crystals’ arrival and Holiday mail volumes.

 

We want to thank everyone for their patience while we endured this long backorder delay.

I'm in the process of modifying the PCB layout to add the receiver mods, and should have that done this weekend.  A few more weeks will be required to get boards fabbed and shipped, and sales should resume in January.  Thanks for bearing with us!

Well,
  No sign of a net on 40 meters. I listened and called CQ on and off until 0215. Heard a KC4ITX? and heard W7KFS call CQ, no contact. I only got 2 very weak reverse beacon network hits, in CA and FL!
  I knew Johnny was not going to call the 80 meter net, but I called CQ for awhile anyway. Got numerous reverse beacon network hits, from CO to the east coast. Had a QSO with W0PWE. Heard a weak 4s? around 0239Z. Listened a bit more, nothing so called it quits.
