Legendary Bayou Jumper

Adam
 

Hello Sir/ma'am et al,

I am happy to be part of the 4SQRP group from Australia.

The Bayou Jumper is an amazing little rig and I'm so happy it made a return!  

My Bayou Jumper is known to some already, but thought I'd share a very short YouTube video on the audio quality this amazing rig is capable of when demodulating voice.

"The Spy' is a great movie and the Morse words sent are not gibberish.....

Jerry Brown
 

All, 

In the Paraset tradition and before the Bayou jumper....

This is a posting I made to the group Maury Amateur Radio Club, our local radio club's Facebook timeline, this AM....

Morse challenge....here's a link to a NETFLIX made TV series (2019) trailer based on the real life of a Mossad agent who infiltrated the Syrian government in the early 1960's....The challenge- email me the 5 easily audible words sent in near perfect Morse code to my email address posted at QRZ.com. The first email with the correct answers will receive a special gift from N4EO and KH6EO at our next club meeting!
QRP CW on display at its movie best! Morse code has been my other language skill since 1962.
73,
Jerry, N4EO, ex-YI9EO
Angie, KH6EO,, ex-YI9AB

The Morse words are here in the short NETFLIX "trailer."

Info on Mossad....

I called for you Joe, you need to go to your Brandmeister self-care account and make tg31654 static on your hot spot. Brandmeister looks at your Blue DV dongle as a hot spot. An alternative would be to transmit your call to TG 31654 just prior to net time to select TG 31654 dynamically, that is what operator's using a repeater have to do. Let me know if this works for you, I believe it will. You have made it through the tough part, hi hi.

Hi Bert,
No joy here.  I heard nothing from you or the others.   I checked the parrot and my system responded just as it was supposed to.  I used TG31654 and BM master 3102.  The usb stick was working fine.  Every thing is set as it was when I talked you so don’t know why it didn’t work.

I have a typo on the last entry of the 80 meter report.
Glenn is N4MJ  not N4ELM.

Sorry about that Glenn.
I read one thing on paper and typed something else!

It sure has been hot here for the last couple of days.
It is near 100 deg F and the heat index is above that quite a bit. 
Possible 100 tomorrow with heat indexes near 100- 155 degrees.

Quite a bit of mechanical details to work out - not my strongest suit - but it looks like the thing can be done, and fit in a box certainly not larger than a Bayou Jumper.
