Nouveau 75

Rick Tilton WK4R <rtilton@...>
 

I am considering the  Nouveau 75  "SOON".  However, I have questions.  Does the kit come with the case?  What mic comes with it? (Tell me NOT an electret?)  Any pros or cons?  I know it is a kit and looks great but all kits have had flaws that I have obtained.  Basically Can anyone give me a quick run down before I order.  Are they ready to ship now? 

73,

Rick WK4R

PERIODIC REMINDER

The 4SQRP Mailing List exists for several purposes:

  • To encourage the discussion of QRP activities and techniques, especially those that relate to 4SQRP events.
  • To provide support for 4SQRP kits and products on the main list or in one of the specialty subgroups.
  • To share your QRP operating experiences and techniques.
The 4SQRP Mailing list IS NOT for the purpose of supporting the products of other companies or clubs. If you have a question about their products or if you have a service issue with another vendor, this is not the place to discuss it. Contact them directly. We're sorry you had a problem but we aren't here to help everyone in the world.

If you choose to ignore our simple rules don't be surprised if you receive a note from a moderator, get yourself placed on permanent moderation, or get banned from the list. We are all reasonable people and are not vindictive. However, we can be provoked. The Moderators are volunteers. We get no pay, no free kits, etc.

One last comment; Sending a message outside the guidelines but marking it as "off topic" is sure fire way to get placed on moderation as you have clearly demonstrated that you don't believe the rules apply to you.


QRPometer sold

Martin
 

This is sold.

"I have a 4SQRPometer that I built several years ago. it initially worked then it started acting strange. I put it aside and forgot about it until recently when I stumbled across it. I'm guessing it has a cold solder joint or something. Anyway I have no need for it so if someone can use it for parts or to repair. Drop me an email. make me an offer. I'll consider almost anything beyond shipping!"

Thanks,

Re: 40 and 80 Meter Net Report

John - KK4ITX
 

Yes Dale, I am aware of the overlap in use and not placing blame but I often bring up the issue to perhaps get the 4S frequency moved to avoid the QRM.  I had my FT-450D filter at 300 and could still hear them at 7121 around an S4-5.  They were clearly centered on 7125 well within their rights, no problem here on that score..... but pretty wide.

There is often interference to deal with as I work 95+% QRP and that’s part of the game, usually when I can, I just quietly move away from it but that’s not an option when I am chasing a Net.

I figure that being just a handful of miles from the Gulf Coast makes it even more likely for me to have an issue, it’s not uncommon here.

73,

John

John, some of the Central and South America countries have phone privileges in our CW sub-bands. Years ago I lived in Costa Rica and Honduras and I once had a cross mode SSB/CW contact with a stateside Novice. It was perfectly legal for both of us. So when a DX station crowds us at 7122 kHz, we need to remember that he/she may be complaining about how we're causing them QRM just like we complain about them. Who's wrong?  :-)
